Wall Street Killed Kennedy : How and Why We Know That

"The President has reviewed the discussions of South Vietnam which occurred in Honolulu, and has discussed the matter further with Ambassador Lodge."

McGeorge Bundy

McGeorge Bundy, 1966-1979

A former national security adviser, Bundy led the foundation during a period of enormous social change. Major initiatives under his leadership included broad support to civil rights organizations, urban redevelopment efforts, the creation of PBS, minority fellowships, U.S. energy policy, women's organizations and the launch of microfinance.

The President has reviewed the discussions of South Vietnam which occurred in Honolulu, and has discussed the matter further with Ambassador Lodge. He directs that the following guidance be issued to all concerned:
            1.            It remains the central object of the United States in South Vietnam to assist the people and Government of that country to win their contest against the externally directed and supported Communist conspiracy. The test of all decisions and U.S. actions in this area should be the effectiveness of their contribution to this purpose.

            2.            The objectives of the United States with respect to the withdrawal of U.S. military personnel remain as stated in the White House statement of October 2, 1963.

            3.            It is a major interest of the United States Government that the present provisional government of South Vietnam should be assisted in consolidating itself and in holding and developing increased public support. All U.S. officers should conduct themselves with this objective in view.

            4.            It is of the highest importance that the United States Government avoid either the appearance or the reality of public recrimination from one part of it against another, and the President expects that all senior officers of the Government will take energetic steps to insure that they and their subordinates go out of their way to maintain and to defend the unity of the United States Government both here and in the field.

                        More specifically, the President approves the following lines of action developed in the discussions of the Honolulu meeting of November 20. The office or offices of the Government to which central responsibility is assigned is indicated in each case.

            5.            We should concentrate our own efforts, and insofar as possible we should persuade the Government of South Vietnam to concentrate its efforts, on the critical situation in the Mekong Delta. This concentration should include not only military but political, economic, social, educational and informational effort. We should seek to turn the tide not only of battle but of belief, and we should seek to increase not only our control of land, but the productivity of this area wherever the proceeds can be held for the advantage of anti-Communist forces.
(Action: The whole country team under the direct supervision of the Ambassador.)

            6.            Programs of military and economic assistance should be maintained at such levels that their magnitude and effectiveness in the eyes of the Vietnamese Government do not fall below the levels sustained by the United States in the time of the Diem Government. This does not exclude arrangements for economy on the MAP account with respect to accounting for ammunition and any other readjustments which are possible as between MAP and other U.S. defense resources. Special attention should be given to the expansion of the import distribution and effective use of fertilizer for the Delta.
(Action: AID and DOD as appropriate.)

            7.            With respect to action against North Vietnam, there should be a detailed plan for the development of additional Government of Vietnam resources, especially for sea-going activity, and such planning should indicate the time and investment necessary to achieve a wholly new level of effectiveness in the field of action.
(Action: DOD and CIA)

            8.            With respect to Laos, a plan should be developed for military operations up to a line up to 50 kilometers inside Laos, together with political plans for minimizing the international hazards of such an enterprise. Since it is agreed that operational responsibility for such undertakings should pass from CAS to MACV, this plan should provide an alternative method of political liaison for such operations, since their timing and character can have an intimate relation to the fluctuating situation in Laos.
(Action: State, DOD and CIA.)

            9.            It was agreed in Honolulu that the situation in Cambodia is of the first importance for South Vietnam, and it is therefore urgent that we should lose no opportunity to exercise a favorable influence upon that country. In particular, measures should be undertaken to satisfy ourselves completely that recent charges from Cambodia are groundless, and we should put ourselves in position to offer to the Cambodians a full opportunity to satisfy themselves on this same point.
(Action: State)

            10.            In connection with paragraphs 7 and 8 above, it is desired that we should develop as strong and persuasive a case as possible to demonstrate to the world the degree to which the Viet Cong is controlled, sustained and supplied from Hanoi, through Laos and other channels. In short, we need a more contemporary version of the Jordan Report, as powerful and complete as possible.
(Action: Department of State with other agencies as necessary.)
McGeorge Bundy

My primary goal in this presentation is to stimulate thought about the motives behind the JFK assassination, particularly those related to his Vietnam withdrawal policy. My secondary goal is to stimulate thought about evidence suggesting that select senior military and/or Administration officials may have had foreknowledge of the plot to assassinate the 35th President of the United States.

John Dean's Enemies List

"Stated a bit more bluntly--how we can use the available federal machinery to screw our political enemies."
"Dealing with our political enemies."
John W. Dean,
Aug. 16, 1971

Dean Memo on 'Enemies'
Memorandum from Dean to Lawrence Higby, former assistant to Haldeman, dated Aug. 16, 1971 and entitled "Dealing with our political enemies."

This memorandum addresses the matter of how we can maximize the fact of our incumbency in dealing with persons known to be active in their opposition to our Administration, Stated a bit more bluntly--how we can use the available federal machinery to screw our political enemies.

After reviewing this matter with a number of persons possessed of experience in the field, I have concluded that we do not need an elaborate mechanism or game plan, rather we need a good project coordinator and full support for the project. In brief, the system would work as follows:

--Key members of the staff (e.g., Colson, Dent, Flanigan, Buchanan) could be requested to inform us as to who they feel we should be giving a hard time.

--The project coordinator should then determine what sorts of dealings these individuals have with the Federal Government and how we can best screw them (e.g., grant availability, federal contracts, litigation prosecution, etc.)

--The project coordinator then should have access to and the full support of the top officials of the agency or departments in proceeding to deal with the individual.

I have learned that there have been many efforts in the past to take such actions, but they have ultimately failed--in most cases because of lack of support at the top. Of all those I have discussed this matter with, Lyn Nofizger [President's California manager] appears the most knowledgeable and most interested. If Lyn had support he would enjoy undertaking this activity as the project coordinator. You are aware of some of Lyn's successes in the field, but he feels that he can employ limited efforts because there is a lack of support.

As a next step. I would recommend that we develop a small list of names--not more than ten--as our targets for concentration. Request that Lyn "do a job" on them and if he finds he is getting cut off by a department agency, that he inform us and we evaluate what is necessary to proceed. I feel it is important that we keep our targets limited for several reasons: (1) a low visibility of the project is imperative; (2) it will be easier to accomplish something real if we don't over expand our efforts; and (3) we can learn more about how to operate such an activity if we start small and build.



* A memo dated Sept. 14, 1971 from Dean to Haldeman aide Lawrence Higby, submitted to the Committee, included three persons not shown on either list of 20 or the larger master list. Those selected by Dean for inclusion were:
Eugen Carson Blake (per request) [General Secretary World Council of Churches

Leonard Bernstein (per request) [ Conductor/ Composer ]

Tom Wicker (New York Times)

Clark Clifford (Clifford) [former Secretary of Defense] 

List of White House 'Enemies' and Memo 
Submitted by Dean to the Ervin Committee

From Facts on File, Watergate and the White House, vol. 1, pages 96-97. Copyright, Facts on File. Among the documents Dean submitted in evidence June 27 were lists "several inches thick" of Nixon's "political enemies."

The "Opponents List and Political Enemies Project" turned over to the Senate committee, Dean said, was compiled beginning in 1971 by various Administration officials and was frequently updated.

In one of the documents, written by Dean Aug. 16, 1971, intended to accompany the undated master list of opponents, Dean suggested ways in which "we can use the available federal machinery to screw our political enemies." Methods proposed included Administration manipulation of "grant availability, federal contracts, litigation, prosecution, etc."

Dean testified that the memo was sent to then-White House Chief of Staff H. R. Haldeman and John D. Ehrlichman, then the President's adviser for domestic affairs, for approval. Dean said he did not know if the plan became operational; however, subsequent memos, also submitted to the committee, indicated that the plan was adopted.

The master list of political enemies was prepared by the office of then- White House counsel Charles W. Colson, Dean said. A condensed list of 20 prime political enemies slated for reprisals was also produced by Colson's office, according to Dean. Others named by Dean who had direct input in the lists were former White House aide Lyn Nofziger and Haldeman aide Gordon Strachan.

The larger list, divided in categories, included 10 Democratic senators, all 12 black House members, more than 50 newspaper and television reporters, prominent businessmen and labor leaders and entertainers. Another list included large and small contributors to Sen. Edmund S. Muskie's (D, Me.) presidential campaign.

Original List

The original list of 20 names of White House "enemies" submitted with comments submitted with comments to Dean by the office of Charles W. Colson.*

Boldface type indicates a correction in erroneous White House identification of its political enemies. Material in brackets is additional information supplied by the editor.

Having studied the attached material and evaluated the recommendations for the discussed action, I believe you will find my list worthwhile for status. It is in priority order.

1. Arnold M. Picker, United Artists Corp., N.Y. Top Muskie fund raiser. Success here could be both debilitating and very embarrassing to the Muskie machine. If effort looks promising, both Ruth and David Picker should be programmed and then a follow through with United Artists.

2. Alexander E. Barkan, national director of A F.L.-C.I.O.'s committee on Political Education, Washington D.C.: Without a doubt the most powerful political force programmed against us in 1968 ($10 million, 4.6 million votes, 115 million pamphlets, 176,000 workers--all programmed by Barkan's C.O.P.E.--so says Teddy White in "The Making of the President 1968"). We can expect the same effort this time. [See p. 468E3]

3. Ed Guthman, managing editor, Los Angeles Times [national editor]: Guthman, former Kennedy aide, was a highly sophisticated hatchetman against us in '68. It is obvious he is the prime mover behind the current Key Biscayne effort. It is time to give him the message.

4. Maxwell Dane, Doyle, Dane and Bernbach, N.Y.: The top Democratic advertising firm--they destroyed Goldwater in '64. They should be hit hard starting with Dane.

5. Charles Dyson, Dyson-Kissner Corp., N.Y.: Dyson and Larry O'Brien were close business associates after '68. Dyson has huge business holdings and is presently deeply involved in the Businessmen's Educational Fund which bankrolls a national radio network of five-minute programs--anti-Nixon in character.

6. Howard Stein, Dreyfus Corp., N.Y.: Heaviest contributor to McCarthy in '68. If McCarthy goes, will do the same in '72. If not, Lindsay or McGovern will receive the funds.

7. Allard Lowenstein, Long Island, N.Y.: Guiding force behind the 18-year-old "Dump Nixon" vote campaign.

8. Morton Halperin, leading executive at Common Cause: A scandal would be most helpful here. (A consultant for Common Cause in February-March 1971)[On staff of Brookings Institution]

9. Leonard Woodcock, UAW, Detroit, Mich.: No comments necessary.

10. S. Sterling Munro Jr., Sen. [Henry M.] Jackson's aide, Silver Spring, Md.: We should give him a try. Positive results would stick a pin in Jackson's white hat.

11. Bernard T. Feld, president, Council for a Livable World: Heavy far left funding. They will program an "all court press" against us in'72.

12. Sidney Davidoff, New York City, [New York City Mayor John V.] Lindsay's top personal aide: a first class S.O.B., wheeler-dealer and suspected bagman. Positive results would really shake the Lindsay camp and Lindsay's plans to capture youth vote. Davidoff in charge.

13. John Conyers, congressman, Detroit: Coming on fast. Emerging as a leading black anti-Nixon spokesman. Has known weakness for white females.

14. Samuel M. Lambert, president, National Education Association: Has taken us on vis-a-vis federal aid to parochial schools--a '72 issue.

15. Stewart Rawlings Mott, Mott Associates, N.Y.: Nothing but big money for radic-lib candidates.

16. Ronald Dellums, congressman, Calif.: Had extensive [Edward M. Kennedy] EMK-Tunney support in his election bid. Success might help in California next year.

17. Daniel Schorr, Columbia Broadcasting System, Washington: A real media enemy.

18. S. Harrison Dogole, Philadelphia, Pa.: President of Globe Security Systems--fourth largest private detective agency in U.S. Heavy Humphrey contributor. Could program his agency against us.

19. Paul Newman, Calif.: Radic-lib causes. Heavy McCarthy involvement '68. Used effectively in nation wide T.V. commercials.'72 involvement certain.

20. Mary McGrory, Washington columnist: Daily hate Nixon articles.

First Colson Memo to Dean

(June 12, 1972)

I have received a well-informed tip that there are income tax discrepancies involving the returns of Harold J. Gibbons, a vice president of the teamsters union in St. Louis. This has come to me on very, very good authority.

Gibbons, you should know, is an all out enemy, a McGovernite, ardently anti-Nixon. He is one of the three labor leaders who were recently invited to Hanoi.

Please tell me if this one can be started on at once and if there is an informer's fee, let me know. There is a good cause at which it can be donated.


Second Colson Memo to Dean

(Nov. 17, 1972)

I have received from an informer some interesting information on Jack Anderson, including a report that Jack Anderson was found in a room with wiretap equipment and a private investigator in connection with the Dodd investigation. 

Anderson, according to my source, had the wiretap equipment supplied to him by a Washington, D.C., man.

According to the same source, Anderson and Drew Pearson were paid $100,000 in 1958 by Batista to write favorable articles about the former Cuban dictator. In 1961 Anderson wrote serveral very favorable articles on Fidel Castro. Fredo de la Campo, Batista's Under Secretary of State, sent Anderson a telegram saying "I hope you were paid well, as well for the Castro articles as you were for the Batista articles." My source has a copy of the telegram.

You know my personal feelings about Jack Anderson. After his incredibly sloppy and malicious reporting on Eagleton, his credibility has diminished. It now appears as if we have the opportunity to destroy it. Do you agree that we should pursue this activity?

A is for Asbestos

Dr. Cooke testified that his examination of the lungs indicated old scarring indicative of a previous, healed, tuberculosis infection, and extensive fibrosis, in which were visible "particles of mineral matter ... of various shapes, but the large majority have sharp angles. The size varies from 393.6 to 3 µm in length....

[These] originated from asbestos and were, beyond a reasonable doubt, the primary cause of the fibrosis of the lungs and therefore of death"

Dr William Edmund Cooke, 
Pathologist and Bacteriologist,
Wigan Infirmary and Leigh Infirmary, 1927


"For nearly three hundred years, Lloyd's of London insurance policies were backed by wealthy British investors, who came to be known as "Names" because, in the early days, their signatures were written on the face of each Lloyd's policy. The Names participated in one-year venture syndicates, to insure risks, chiefly in maritime insurance. Each Name pledged his entire personal wealth to back up his share in the syndicate's policies. The syndicates accepted business for one year, then allowed two more years for claims to come in and be settled. Each syndicate closed its "year of account" and wound up its affairs after the end of the third year. The Names received their share of the profits, or paid their share of the losses, and their liability ended. If, however, all claims could not be settled by the end of the third year, the syndicate had to remain "open" and the profits or losses could not be shared among the Names until all claims were finally settled. This system was efficient and profitable in maritime business; the outcome of any given voyage was almost always known within the year of account, and settled within three.

As both commerce and insurance grew more complex, and especially as Lloyd's expanded into non-maritime business, syndicates found they could no longer close their affairs after only three years. Staying open longer, however, and thus delaying the distribution of profits, would threaten their financial base: Names might well look elsewhere for more reliable investments with more rapid returns. Lloyd's solution was to have each closing syndicate reinsure its remaining risks with a syndicate from the next year of account. For a premium paid, a still-open syndicate, during its third year, would assume any remaining Incurred But Not yet Reported ("IBNR") liabilities of the closing syndicate from the prior year by issuing it a specialized policy of Re-Insurance To Close ("RITC"). Lloyd's syndicates could thus continue distributing profits after three years, instead of having to radically alter their long-established and familiar business procedure.

When this RITC developed, there were only a few thousand members of Lloyd's, of whom perhaps a thousand, known as "working Names", actually conducted the business of Lloyd's insurance market. The rest ("external" Names) relied on their syndicate managing agents to protect their interests, by carefully evaluating each risk accepted, and by calculating the RITC in such a way that neither excessive profit nor loss was realized by the Names on the old syndicate or the new syndicate. It was extremely important that RITC be calculated fairly, because the individual Names who made up those syndicates were not necessarily the same people.

In order to carve out a share of the U.S. insurance market while a "buy-American" attitude prevailed in the 1930's, 1940's and 1950's, syndicates at Lloyd's issued many broadly worded policies, without monetary limits, insuring and reinsuring risks in the United States. The loose language of these policies gave Lloyd's a temporary competitive advantage over many U.S, carriers; however, these overly generous policies eventually came back to haunt them. By the 1960's and 1970's it was clear to a handful of the highly placed working Names that claims due to asbestosis, pollution and other health hazards (so-called "APH" losses) were ripening into lawsuits in which unanticipatedly large damages were being awarded by American courts. American companies turned to their insurers, and their insurers turned to their reinsurers, who in very many cases were syndicates at Lloyd's.

An avalanche of claims was thus working its way through the courts and down the chain of reinsurance obligations, toward the Lloyd's syndicates that held the RITC policies issued to the syndicates who, in prior years, had written the original, broadly worded policies. The avalanche was moreover apparently going to continue well past the year 2000. Since the original policies were written without monetary limits, the Names backing the syndicates that had assumed liability for these policies through the annual RITC process were facing financial ruin, and Lloyd's ability to "pay all claims" was in jeopardy. The Names would soon be personally liable for coming claims far in excess of their original investments in Lloyd's syndicates, and apparently in excess of their combined wealth besides. If word got out about the magnitude of the undisclosed liabilities latent within numerous syndicates at Lloyd's, incoming investment would cease, and Lloyd's would go the way of the "do-do" bird."

Johnny Rotten Vs. Monarch

"That's Dad....??!?"

The CIA's Monarch Programming takes its name from the Monarch butterfly. 

"They begin as worms (underdeveloped and new) and after the cocoon stage (programming) it is transformed into a completely different creature—a high-flying butterfly (aka the Monarch slave). 

Also, when someone is given electroshock therapy, a feeling of light-headedness occurs and the person feels like they are floating, like a butterfly."

Rotten was always ahead of the curve.

There's nothing I can't get and there's nothing I can't do.

The Murrays of Dunblane

He's no reet i' th'heid....

DUNBLANE UNBURIED - Sandra Uttley from Spike1138 on Vimeo.

According to Andy Murray, tennis is 'fixed' and everyone on the professional circuit knows matches are being affected by gambling.

According to Andy Murray: 

"It's pretty disappointing for all the players but everyone knows it goes on."

"Sitting in the front row was Britain’s tennis-playing prime minister, David Cameron – just behind him was Alex Salmond, the Scottish first minister.

"With a referendum on Scottish independence coming up next year, both political leaders would dearly love to wrap this new sporting hero in the flag – the Scottish saltire in Salmond’s case, the Union Jack in Cameron’s case."

"Andy Murray referred to himself as the 'first British winner' in 77 years. 

"Advantage Cameron."

The politics of Andy Murray’s victory - Gideon Rachman

"Andy Murray won Wimbledon in London on 7/7. Same date and place as the London bombings, just different year. 

"He won the New York Grand slam in New York on 9/11. Same date and place as the Twin Towers, different year. 

"He was in Dunblane school on 13/3/96 when the massacre actually happened. 

"He seems to be scripted to win to mark major illuminati controlled massacres. 

"And the press are going on about how it's 77 years since a British win, just to rub in the 7/7 numbers a bit more."

"Friends at local tennis club were suspicious about his win when chatting yesterday. The matches against Federer last year were very suspicious. Funny how top seeds make hasty exits from Wimbledon early in contest in recent years. 

As for Virginia Wade winning in 1977, the SIlver Jubilee, she was a very average tennis player."

"The BBC had the perfect opportunity for a propaganda push on Sunday during the Wimbledon Final. 

There was however no minutes silence for the London bombing dead, as far as I am aware, and very little mention of this. 

I wonder if this was to stop people making the connection about the dates of Murray's GS victories. 

Or is it another disrespectful arrogant gesture(non) by the Govt. 

Eveybody knows it was a false flag attack, but there was still victims, the non recognition of this speaks volumes.

 I get such a strange vibe from Murray, hard to say what, but something does not ring true."

"Found another link for the New York win. The Wimbledon win was 77 years after the last win. 

The New York win was 116 years after the last win, according to this... 116 is 911 upside down. And 911 seems to be a good date for Scotland."

Someone has pointed out that his New York win seems to be on 10th Sept. But because it was so late in the evening, it was already the 11th Sept in the UK when he won. The media were concentrating on linking him to 911 anyway."

Andy Murray and his elder brother, Jamie, attended the Dunblane Primary School. They were on their way to the school gymnasium and survived by hiding under a desk in the headmaster's office.

"Mr and Mrs Ogilvie know that the men who regularly turned up in large flashy cars to visit Hamilton continued doing so right up to 13 March 1996. They saw them.

"Another neighbour, Cathleen Kerr gave a statement to the police that she saw Hamilton getting out of a grey saloon car on that final fateful morning. He was cheerful, she said."

The official story is that, on 13 March 1996, a mad loner called Thomas Hamilton shot dead 16 children at a primary school in Dunblane in Scotland.

The unofficial story is that Thomas Hamilton was supplying pornography, and possibly young boys, to top people including policemen and politicians; and Thomas Hamilton may have been murdered, to shut him up.

It has been suggested that Thomas Hamilton was a brainwashed patsy and that the real shooters were working for the security services. 

In the Dunblane shootings, "none of the survivors would have been able to obtain a good viewing of the gunman."

Glenn Harrison was a housemaster at Queen Victoria School, in Dunblane.

"He told me the (sexual abuse) was done by a clique of paedophiles connected with the school (teachers etc. and their friends) and another group of 'toffs' who visited the school and took carefully targeted boys away for weekends."

Six weeks later....

The Port Arthur massacre of 28-29 April 1996, was a killing spree in which 35 people were killed and 23 wounded, mainly at the historic Port Arthur prison colony, a popular tourist site in south-eastern Tasmania, Australia.

Martin Bryant, a mentally disabled 28-year-old from New Town, a suburb of Hobart, eventually pleaded guilty to the crimes and was given 35 life sentences without possibility of parole


Judy Murray calls him Deliciano – and it's not hard to see why. 

Posing for a photoshoot, Feliciano Lopez shows off the sporting physique and Spanish good looks which have earned him that nickname. 

But although Mrs Murray, who is divorced, has admitted to being a Lopez admirer, she'll have to put aside her crush when the 29-year-old plays her son Andy today in the quarterfinals at Wimbledon.

'I'm just one of a lot of Feliciano female fans,' 

she admitted yesterday. 

'But of course family loyalty comes into it hugely.' 

The 50-year-old said she was still recovering from the embarrassment of Murray telling Lopez: 

'My mother thinks you're beautiful.' 

Not that it stopped her tweeting about him yesterday – or swooning over him as Murray, 24, was preparing for practice. 

'He is kind of Roman god-like,' 

she told Sky Sports News.

'We were in Rome a few weeks ago and they had the god statues there and I'm sure he was there. '

Some bookmakers had me at 20/1 to wolf whistle at him. 

'Well, that's not going to happen – I don't know how to.' 

Mrs Murray let her views be known when she tweeted: 

'Oooooooooh Deliciano........looking good out there. As always. 

'It's a FeliFest at Wimbledon tmrw. Twice in one day. Too much.' 

Lopez, whose photoshoot took place before the tournament, had posted in a good-natured reply: 'I guess it's a "delifest" instead.' 

Her son obviously wishes Mrs Murray keep her attention on his game. He has joked: 'It's about time she stopped that nonsense. It makes me want to throw up.'

Andy Murray is not an attractive wee cunt.

The phrase "spare prick at a wedding" springs instantly to mind.

What should they call it...?

I can think of a good name....

"How would the tiny island and its 88,000 residents hold up? They pride themselves on their traditionalism (the pound note survives here) and an independent spirit that locals refer to as the Jersey Way. The mantra, reflecting a closed community that knows how to look after itself, is credited with transforming the place from a bourgeois bucket-and-spade resort in the 50s into the oyster-shucking tax haven it is today.

So potent is the lure of the island's low-tax, non-intrusive regime that the level of wealth required of prospective settlers has risen to stratospheric levels: only those who can pay a residency fee of about £1m and show assets in excess of £20m need apply. The lucky few include racing driver Nigel Mansell, golfer Ian Woosnam, broadcaster Alan Whicker and writer Jack Higgins, as well as hundreds of reclusive tycoons, who have made the island the third richest compact community in the world, after Bermuda and Luxembourg."

Attack 'devil' Liddell was Dunblane massacre survivor

Ryan Liddell was put in intensive care at Yorkhill Hospital in Glasgow suffering gunshot wounds

Dunblane man guilty of rape bid

Man slapped 'hysterical' victim

Rape bid accused 'like the devil'

Ryan Liddell's victim, a 76-year-old retired nurse, described him as a man who looked like the devil.

What the jury in his trial did not hear was that as a five-year-old child, Liddell was one of the survivors of the Dunblane Primary School massacre on 13 March 1996.

The school gym shooting spree by Thomas Hamilton killed 16 Primary One children and their teacher, and left another 12 pupils and two staff wounded.

Liddell's link to the massacre was not revealed in the trial at the High Court in Dumbarton, which ended with him being convicted of assaulting the woman with intent to rape.

However, the jury was told he was diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD) at the age of six and that he had sleeplessness and anxiety since childhood.

Following the massacre at his school during a gym class, Liddell was placed in intensive care at Yorkhill Hospital in Glasgow suffering gunshot wounds.

Liddell might have been left distressed and traumatised by the Dunblane massacre, but so would all the others involved, and nobody else has behaved like this”

Dr Vince Egan
Forensic psychologist:-

"He was hospitalised for more than a week while he had surgery to repair a collapsed lung and broken right arm."

Five-year-old Ryan was an only child being brought up by his mother Alison Curry. His father had died of meningitis when Liddell was a baby.

Ms Curry, a secondary teacher who had previously worked at Dunblane Primary School as a trainee, was one of the first on the scene after Hamilton appeared in the school gym.

She was in the playground on her way to meet a teacher when the shooting started.

In a newspaper interview a year later, Ms Curry said a man appeared at the gym fire exit, tried to shoot her then went back into the building to kill himself.

It was only when she ran to her son's classroom and saw piles of school uniforms that she realised Ryan had been in the gym.

She later described the attack as an "incomprehensible horror".

Troubled life
In a front page story on 13 March 1997, the anniversary of the killings, The Mirror ran a photo of a smiling six-year-old Ryan with the headline: "His smile is proof that Dunblane can face the future."

Ms Curry told the paper that although her son had healed physically, he still bore mental scars.

Liddell lived alone and his friends described him as "strange"
"He was frightened at first that the bad man might come back and get him. I had to explain that Thomas Hamilton had killed himself," she said.

"When he heard I was shot at, he had terrible nightmares. Ryan's dad died of meningitis when he was 10 months old. I think he was terrified of losing me too.

"A lot of people assume the injured children are better now, but things can never get back to normal for them."

The survivors were offered support throughout their school lives, including counselling, and psychologists were on hand when they moved up to secondary school in 2002.

However, Liddell continued to lead a troubled life.

The court heard that he had very few friends and lived alone, having fallen out with his mother and stepfather.

Even his own friends described him as "strange" and he described himself as "an idiot" and "naive".

After the verdict Dr Vince Egan, a forensic psychologist at Leicester University, said: "Liddell might have been left distressed and traumatised by the Dunblane massacre, but so would all the others involved, and nobody else has behaved like this.

"It doesn't provide any excuse for what he did to that elderly lady, and post-traumatic stress syndrome isn't going to lead to a reaction like this 15 years on.

"This is certainly the most extreme behaviour I've heard from anyone after a traumatic event."
