Gifts from Uncle Malcolm-part 6

In Assignment Oswald F.B.I. agent James Hosty mentions the following about an early morning meeting on the 22nd held by Gordon Shanklin (S.A.I.C.).

“At any rate, I called this meeting to remind you all of a few things. As you probably know, the Secret Service wants no help from the FBI in protecting the president or his party. Vince Drain here” — Shanklin nodded toward Drain, who was sitting across from me at another desk — “has already made contact with the Dallas Secret Service office, but was politely rebuffed. He was told in so many words they needed no help from us.”

A memo from Vincent Drain seems to concur with the above mentioned.

F.B.I. memo Vincent Drain Nov 25 1963. Click doc to enlarge.

So that is Shanklin, Drain and Hosty all mentioning one way or another that help from the F.B.I. in regards The President’s visit is not needed.

Hmmmmmm. Anyone else?

Of course :)

Enter Stephan Weiss of the 112th military intelligence group who was ordered by Colonel Robert E Jones to offer full cooperation with the Secret Service for J.F.K.’s visit in Dallas. And was told (Sorrels is not named as such) during a meeting they were not needed. Read the documents below, there are a few more nuggets in there you should read.

 

Special thanks to Malcolm Blunt for the documentation.
