After reading this volume, the only apparent betrayal will be to the consumer who plunks down $25.00 for this mess, complains Bill Davy.

 

 

 

 

It would not necessarily be surprising ... if [LBJ] had foreknowledge or tacitly approved of the assassination. ... I do not think, however, that at this date ... an explanation which ignores the larger political forces of the national security state can be taken seriously, writes Joseph Green.

[This] book is more about the CIA's nefarious and illegal operations, including the MK/ULTRA project. If you are interested in learning more about the shadowy world of the CIA, this is a good book. If you are interested in learning more about what happened to JFK and why he was assassinated, I believe there are many books out there that do a better job in answering your questions, writes Vasilios Vazakas.

Saint John Hunt, The Bonds of Secrecy

In the early days after the Rolling Stone article appeared, it appears that [Saint John] and his brother actually had a good deal of skepticism towards what their father had told him about the mechanics of the assassination.  What happened to that skepticism? ... Hunt's personal story, with some good supplementary research about his father and mother, could have been politically interesting and personally compelling. But it didn't come out that way, concludes Seamus Coogan.

John McAdams and the Siege of Chicago, Part 1

McAdams has selectively culled the information he puts [on his site]. He then trumpets that site loudly as undermining the "buffs". As with Bugliosi, his argument is gaseous, since he has rigged the site beforehand, write Jim DiEugenio and Brian Hunt.

A documentary designed to blame President Kennedy for his own assassination by falsely stating that he ordered the agents off his limousine, as well as to perpetuate the official Warren Commission story, writes Vince Palamara.

Last Word Cover

By any standards, Lane's resume is impressive, and I have a great deal of respect for the man. So it is with heavy heart that I must say his latest and most likely his last book on the murder of JFK is—for me at least—a little disappointing, writes Martin Hay.
