Book Description

7 Nov 2013

The people of America were not satisfied that Lyndon B. Johnson's presidential inquiry into the murder of President John F. Kennedy in 1963 had revealed the truth. This inspired a 'people's investigation', the nature and the scale of which were unequalled. It was the beginning of a quest to establish the truth which has so far taken 50 years and which still goes on.

Who Killed Kennedy? is an exhaustive account of that quest, through the eyes of a historian who has been involved in it from the very beginning.

It is a story of treachery, lies, deceit and murder. As the investigation has progressed over the years, the revelations have been breathtaking, the facts staggering and the real story so dramatic that fiction simply cannot equal it.

Product Description


"Many people are more interested in Kennedy's death than his life, which is why Matthew Smith's book Who Killed Kennedy? had to appear at this juncture. It explores much familiar ground - of likely CIA involvement in the murder - and some new avenues within it ... all of which seems utterly credible. For this story has no end, nor will it ever. This is why we remain entranced." (Ed Vulliamy The New Review (Observer))

Book Description

An explosive new study that precedes the 50th anniversary of the assassination of JFK

1.0 out of 5 stars Bovine excrement. 1 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Matthew Smith is an inveterate and unconscionable liar.

This book, like all of his others, relies on the ignorance of his reader, the inclusion of lies, the omission of facts and the absence of any source or reference notes. The absence of such notes ensures that the inexperienced reader can never know when Smith is lying about something or simply making it up out of thin air.

Unfortunately for Smith, not everybody is as ignorant as he would wish them to be.

In order to fully expose Smith I am providing checkable sources which prove that he is dishonest.

He effectively begins his book on page 31, chapter2: `Dallas'. Prior pages are taken up with a three-page acknowledgement, various content tables, a five page `foreword' by Cyril Wecht, a one page `introduction' and a first chapter which is sycophantic homily to the deceased JFK. Smith swoons, "..under Kennedy, the United States had begun to shine out as a beacon of peace." Really?? History seems to be another of Smith's `intellectual black-holes'.

Chapter 2: Dallas,

(p. 31) "When it [the motorcade] reached the intersection of Main street with Houston street, instead of proceeding straight ahead, it took another right turn and followed a route which was a revision of the original one planned."

FALSE: The motorcade route was never changed.
See WCR pp. 31- 40. These pages include photographic plates, maps and diagrams as well as written text. The testimony of those who formulated the route can be found in 4 H 338 (Lawson), 7 H 337-8 (Sorrells), 7 H 443 (O' Donnell), 4 H 326 (Lawson), 4 H 341 (Lawson), 7 H 333 (Sorrells), 4 H 333 (Lawson) and 5 H 465-6 (Rowley).

The HSCA also examined the issue of the parade route.

Gives more information about the assassination than I was previously aware of. Detailed without waffling. A good analysis of an historic event.

4.0 out of 5 stars Matthew Smith - always good 9 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As usual, an excellent book. I'm pleased to note he has now publicly expressed reservations about his earlier view of J D Tippit's role.

I skimmed this in the bookshop and jumped forward to the conclusion only to be appalled at the cheap and shameless manner in which the author implicates LBJ as an accessory to the conspiracy based purely on loose gossip from a former mistress, alleging LBJ was taken aside by none other than Nixon and Hoover at a a Washington party to be told Kennedy would be killed the next day! He supports the claim with 'corroborating facts' that LBJ broke Texas law by having the body extradited back immediatley to Washington, and the unseemly speed at which he was inaugurated on Air Force One with Kennedy's corpse on board; case closed!

In fact, it was on the express wishes of the Kennedys and the secret service, especially brother Bobby, and to LBJ's surprise, and hardly something he could object to without being accused of gross insensitivity that the body was sent back so quickly (the Kennedys understandably didn't trust the Dallas and Texan authorities). The fast track inauguration was recognised even by Jackie as a necessity to restore a sense of calm and stability at a moment of profound national shock and trauma. Finally, the idea Nixon and Hoover would take the VP into their confidence that his C-in-C was going to be killed the next day like a piece of political tittle tattle doesn't merit further comment. That the author can implicate three of the most senior political/government figures of the time on the basis of some idle gossip from a suspect individual tells you everything about the writer's approach to evidence. Read JP Ryder's review below for further examples of the writer's shameless mendacity.
