Into the Storm, by John Newman

Written by

Jim DiEugenio reviews John Newman’s latest volume on the JFK case, Into the Storm, finding it a bit uneven, but very well done in its analysis of how the CIA switched back their plots to kill Castro onto the Kennedy White House and how the military under Lemnitzer and Lansdale was proposing false flag operations to justify a war with Cuba.

Recognizing the significant contributions to JFK research made by mainstream journalist Jefferson Morley, Jim DiEugenio reviews his recent e-book, Morley v. CIA: My Unfinished JFK Investigation, and traces the history of George Joannides involvement with the CIA and the DRE dating back to the time of the JFK assassination and beyond.

While working on Oliver Stone’s upcoming documentary, Jim DiEugenio consulted the 2nd edition of John Newman’s ground-breaking book, JFK and Vietnam, and now takes the opportunity to review the development of Newman’s important thesis and the innovation and impact of this substantial research in dispelling the myth that LBJ did not alter Kennedy’s policy in Vietnam.
