At the height of his popularity, John F. Kennedy was gunned down in a Dallas motorcade--a tragedy widely regarded as the end of America's post-war "age of innocence." At the time, a concerted effort was made by the Warren Commission, appointed by the Lyndon Johnson White House, to officially lay the entire blame on "lone gunman" Lee Harvey Oswald. Fifty years later, recently declassified documents shed new light on what really happened. In decades of meticulous research, investigative journalist Jerome Corsi has sorted through mountains of evidence--hundreds of books, tens of thousands of documents, several films, and countless photographs. Dissecting the Warren Commission's conclusion, he carefully separates the unlikely from the real, and speculation from facts. Having personally known or met many of the key players in the assassination drama, including a former top Soviet bloc intelligence official, Corsi reveals shocking information for the first time. He sets a new standard for JFK assassination research, demanding that future researchers understand the political forces leading up to an unthinkable event that marked a profound change in America and the world.--From publisher description.
Posits that John F. Kennedy was not killed by a lone assassin.

"the jfk limousine was part of the crime scene, yet,not only was it cleaned at parkland, but it was sent for repairs before forensic science experts could collect evidence." "it has been argued that commission exhibit 399 was not deformed because the velocity of the bullet had slowed to a fraction of its original speed after passing through jfk's back, exiting his neck, puncturing connally's back, exiting connally's chest, hitting connally's wrist, and lodging in connally's thigh. what these apologists fail to explain is how a missile slowed enough so as not to become deformed upon hitting bone, yet was going fast enough to destroy 10 cm. of connally's rib and shatter the radius bone of his wrist." "under texas and federal law at the time, jfk's body should have remained in dallas for autopsy, and the criminal investigation should have been handled locally.""if the throat wound was determined to be an entrance wound, there had to be a second shooter positioned to the front, on the grassy knoll." "arlen specter's entire argument came to rest on the hypothesis that the bullet entered that entered jfk's back exited through his throat, and went on to cause all connally's wounds, despite the fact that neither the medical evidence ascertained at parkland, or at Bethesda, supported his theory." "as long as Oswald remained the only viable suspect, the case could be closed as an awful accident of history. no doctor at parkland or Bethesda ever thought to postulate a single-bullet theory. that took a lawyer like specter. prior to the autopsy evidence strongly suggested multiple shooters some of whom were positioned in front of jfk. u.s.army physician lt.col. pierre finck said military brass present at the autopsy stopped doctors from performing procedures the doctors felt were necessary to determine the exact nature and type of wounds jfk suffered . had finck been able to to complete his work his conclusions would have been devastating to the solo assassin theory. the frame-up would have been kaputs." "what would have been wrong with jfk just deciding to send in a few thousand us troops to Vietnam in the fall of 1963? instead of giving a speech in dallas on 11-22-63, focused on the military assistance program, jfk could have planned to explain to the world how his decision to commit us troops to Vietnam was fulfilling the promise he made in his first inaugural address to defend freedom around the globe because no price for freedom was too great to pay. the cia shared a belief with lbj, Nixon , and the military industrial complex that even if us military action failed in cuba or in Vietnam, as it had in korea, the military intervention would be good for business and the us economy...the new world order view was comfortable employing the us military to preserve us business interests, as had been done when overthrowing mossadegh in iran and arbenz in Guatemala." "under the ideologies of nationalism and self-determination jfk used to analyze cuba, laos, and Vietnam, it was clear he felt us military involvement was required in none of these conflicts. jfk cared about us business interests, but not necessarily to the point of going to war."

Yet another book proving that Harvard never ceases to continue to turn out idiots and charlatans! Corsi is a whiny sleazebag, but he does at least get several things right, which may be the overall strategy; toss in some facts, while ignoring the extraordinary amount of other facts [nothing on the backgrounds of the Paines, which really blows everything up - - nothing on the background of Jack Ruby, a k a Jacob Rubenstein, which really blows things up - - nothing on the background of Gen. Edwin Walker, which really blows things up, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera]. At least Corsi got right the fact that witnesses placed Lee Oswald at the Depository lunchroom at the time of the murder. [Anyone honest ever graduated from Harvard recently?]
