Sylvia Meagher Corresponds with Philippe Labro

Updated: Apr 6

Philippe Labro was a French journalist who covered the JFK Assassination for France-Soir.

Meagher references the "so-called code." Garrison believed he was a cryptologist and he thought he had found a coded link between Lee Harvey Oswald and Clay Shaw. You can see a list of links about the code below.

Meagher discusses Garrison's fascination with Kerry Thornley. Click here for all of my posts on Kerry Thornley.

The story about Mark Lane and Garrison's files was told by Tom Bethell (see his diary entry for November 4, 1967)

The first two paragraphs above on Lane and the other critics are important.

He writes:

Dear Sylvia:
Thanks for your latest letters. I am afraid we fully agree on one thing: The disappointment over Garrison's failure and fraud. In fact, the whole thing has been such a blow -- after the hope I had in him, having seen him and having been "charmed" -- that this whole affair fades away in my mind, memory, and interest. I have a dark feeling the truth will not be known and, worse, that nobody cares anymore.
