THE TIMES FINALLY SETS THE JFK ASSASSINATION RECORD STRAIGHT
After years of obfuscation about the Kennedy assassination, the New York Times has finally set the record straight. In today's obituary of Paul Bentley, the Dallas police detective who arrested Lee Harvery Oswald at the Texas Theatre, and whose masonic ring allegedly caused the shiner Oswald sported after that arrest, the paper makes an important correction. When Jim Leavelle was escorting Oswald through the basement of the Dallas jail, and Jack Ruby killed Oswald, the hat Leavelle was wearing was NOT a Stetson, it was a Resistol. Resistols were impermeable, just like the Times.
