David Belin Lecture

David W. Belin, of Des Moines, Iowa and New York, was an American businessman noted for his public service. He was born June 20, 1928 and died on January 17, 1999 in Rochester, Minnesota from head injuries sustained in a fall.  David Belin was assistant counsel to the Warren Commission, and he concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald had worked entirely on his own as Kennedy's assassin, which the commission affirmed in its final report. Belin stood by the findings of the Warren report until his death and was known to become incensed at any mention of an assassination conspiracy. As he lay in a coma in his final days, his friends would whisper conspiracy theories about the JFK assassination into his ear to confirm his unconsciousness by his unprecedented lack of response.

Belin Lectureship - In 1991, Belin established the David W. Belin Lectureship in American Jewish Affairs at his alma mater the University of Michigan as an academic forum for the discussion of contemporary Jewish life in the United States. Belin graduated from the University of Michigan College of Literature, Science and the Arts , Business School and Law School.

I was present when David Belin gave this lecture at the University of Michigan, March 24, 1992. The topic was called: Rewriting History: The Prostitution of the JFK Assassination. The lecture was Belin's response to the popularity of the recent Oliver Stone movie: "JFK." Belin felt it was his duty to defend the Warren Commission and Earl Warren from attack. He used the acronym "M.O.L.D." to describe what he referred to as "Misrepresentations, Omissions, Lies, and Money."

If you have never had the opportunity to hear David Belin, you're in for an eye-opening experience. During the course of his lecture, he made reference to something about the single bullet theory he claims would surprise the audience. But, he doesn't mention it again. I went backstage afterward to ask him for clarification. He revealed that he was the one who "dreamed up" the SBT. You can read the story on my website under "Author Bio - Meeting David Belin.)

The entire video runs about an hour.
