That's the perfect place to hide the alien evidence.

I don't think you read the article

First cleaning up the limo, rebuilding it.  Now this.

They didn't want anything left.

I hear people say that it was one bullet and that was rational that it was one shooter.  Given the destruction of evidence and how everyone involved came to a premature end, unlikely.

/Now give me my real tinfoil.

Trauma Room One?
Does everything presidential (no proper noun, I'm not a serf) have to be designated this way?
So the back seat of the Cadillac where he popped his rocks all up and over Marilyn, is that called Jizz Splash Passion Wagon One?

In the article it's not Trauma Room One, it's Trauma Room 1, as in, the room number.

/although terms like Boner Pocket One are somewhat amusing to comtemplate

The window frame that he was shot through (taken from the book depository) sold for 3 million on ebay. This junk is worth a fortune!

"the rifle Oswald used to assassinate the president"

Which one? They found three that he supposedly used.

squibbits: The window frame that he was shot through (taken from the book depository) sold for 3 million on ebay. This junk is worth a fortune!


and after RTFA, the reason why everything was sold/locked away (in 1971...) was to prevent that sort of thing from happening.  "The clock that JFK's time of death was called on, starting bid $25,000,000 !!!"
 
2013-05-24 08:09:57 AM  
Why in the hell are we paying to store this crap FOREVER?  If nobody ever sees it again, what's the point?
And really, in the newer generations, who the hell cares?
Geezus, these idiots are actually scrambling to find ways to waste our tax money.

Move on.....

Is there any other kind?
Honest question.

storing everything from barrels of concrete debris, wires, and light switches


Typically if there is an "everything from X" in a sentence, there needs to be a "to Y" on the other end.

TFH should read "everything from barrels of concrete debris to wires and light switches".
 
2013-05-24 08:46:34 AM  
So the article reads like the govt was crazy to buy all this stuff to keep it off the market...and they have photos of the doorknob to the room where the debris from Trauma Room 1 used to be stored.

That reporter would have been one of the first to exploit the items they didnt want exploited.
 
2013-05-24 09:04:04 AM  
WTF, they're men, not demigods or even rock stars!  There's no canonization, no miracles.  Saving the pubic hair of a dead president is a bad precedent.
 
2013-05-24 09:26:54 AM  
Must be due to the depleted uranium rounds he was shot with weren't public knowledge yet.
 
2013-05-24 10:01:23 AM  
Yeah.
The story of what happened to the bloody casket that carried his body aboard Air Force One on the trip back to Washington is an interesting one.

They kept it as the national archives for a while, then drilled it full of holes, sandbagged it, crated it up, put it aboard a C-130 and parachuted it into the ocean due east of Atlantic City in 9,000 feet of water.

I can see the draw in some items being saved for whatever reason, but tiles and light switches? There is no reason to be saving this shiat. Me thinks the "asinine" tag would have been better suited to this story.

I could see the gurney and other equipment that was used at the time.  But you're right.  Tiles and light switches are stupid.

This is like an episode of X Files.

/now Mulder and Scully will recover the casket from the bottom of the Atlantic and find that it contains... a dead human/alien hybrid!

FTFA: "I believe most of this was originally set in motion by the Kennedy family," said Farris Rookstool, a former FBI analyst.

I bet they called him "Magnetic Birdshiat" in high school.

One reason to do this is to keep the stuff out of the hands of morbid collectors.  A chunk of concrete from the room where JFK was pronounced dead is potentially worth money to some people.  The phenomenon of this kind of collecting has been the motive for lots of secret gravesites and even nonexistent graves.

I'm sick of guys like you in these threads denigrating tasteful rock markers to our martyred 20th Century Irish Presidents
wnyheritagepress.org
oh, SS-100-X was a Lincoln Continental Limo-Truman was so angry at the moolah GM gave to Local Hero Thomas Dewey's campaign(his grandfather attended the formation of the Republican Party under the Oaks in Jackson, MI) he banned GM product from the Presidential motor pool, only Ike used an Eldorado 'til Reagan brought Caddies back

heinrich66 "the rifle Oswald used to assassinate the president"  Which one? They found three that he supposedly used.

That Mauser sounds sweet, triangulation of crossfire & all,I'm out before somebody invokes those Corsican guys on the grassy knoll...
