AP Breaks Story that Chills Me to the Bone

I remember very clearly sitting in a darkened theatre in 1991, a 15 year-old living in Grand Island, Nebraska. It was December and I was watching Oliver Stone's JFK.

During those scenes in which Kevin Costner's character played narrator, detailing Stone's elaborate (if imagined) conspiracy, I clearly remember an uncomfortable feeling — as if something was crawling up the back of my neck.

I don't think I've experienced that feeling in the 15 years since.

For reasons I can't quite identify, reading this story gives me the same feeling: Arab Co., White House Had Secret Agreement

(If you need some conspiracy theory music to accompany your read, here's a sample of a John Williams theme from JFK.)

Andy,

Great work. Good to see that you are still digging up good stuff for the rest of us.
