This collection contains a nearly complete run of The Continuing Inquiry and is full text-searchable.In 1963, Penn Jones became involved in investigating the assassination of John F. Kennedy. A fellow researcher, Gary Mack, later explained, "Penn was one of the first generation of researchers who felt the government was behind the assassination - probably a conspiracy involving military intelligence...

Oswald denied the charge and was killed in police custody the next day. A year later, a commission of Washington insiders concluded Oswald acted “alone and unaided.” JFK’s death was not politically motivated, it was proclaimed.--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/art-mcdermott/support

Perpetrated by American terrorists Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols, the bombing happened at 9:02 am and killed at least 168 people, including many children, injured more than 680 others, and destroyed more than one third of the building, which had to be demolished. The blast destroyed or damaged 324 other buildings within a 16-block radius, shattered glass in 258 nearby buildings, and destroyed or burned 86 cars, causing an estimated $652 million worth of damage. Local, state, federal, and worldwide agencies engaged in extensive rescue efforts in the wake of the bombing. They and the city received substantial donations from across the country. The Federal Emergency Management Agency  activated 11 of its Urban Search and Rescue Task Forces, consisting of 665 rescue workers who assisted in rescue and recovery operations. Until the September 11 attacks in 2001, the Oklahoma City bombing was the deadliest terrorist attack in the history of the United States. It remains the deadliest act of domestic terrorism in U.S. history.--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/art-mcdermott/support
