They Killed Our President: 63 Facts That Prove a Conspiracy to Kill JFK
They Killed Our President: 63 Facts That Prove a Conspiracy to Kill JFK
by Jesse Ventura
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 12.91

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time, 19 Aug 2014
Don't waste your time: Jesse Ventura claims in the book that the shooting was physically impossible, when this has been debunked since the 1967 when CBS conducted their own test: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WovyEqfR8Hg

He also claims that Oswald could not shoot, when he in fact qualified as a marksman, as his Marine Corps records show.

So, either Ventura is a poor researcher, or his book is a cynical attempt to profit from the 50th anniversary of the assassination. Either way, it is seriously flawed from the start. Avoid.

1.0 out of 5 stars BAD SIZING, 31 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A medium belt is advertised from 31"-37" waist - My waist is 34" and even on the tightest setting it was too loose. To add insult to injury, I had to pay a third of its price to return it. Probably best to avoid...

1.0 out of 5 stars No Context, 2 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hunger [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
As a film, it is beautifully shot and presented with some outstanding acting. The conversation between the priest and Bobby Sands is cinematically flawless.

The problem is the presentation of the subject: The prisoners did not have their crimes mentioned once and someone ignorant of history could assume they were victims of internments without trial or a lack of due process.

Secondly, no-one stopped the prisoners from using the prison facilities, or washing nor made them live in the disgusting conditions that they did. This was entirely self imposed hardship.

Apart from a single nurse, every prison official or guard is depicted as a brutal savage. Historically, its strange that his election as an MP was not mentioned nor the fact that his family could have saved his life at any time.

This is a fine effort of turning Bobby Sands into saint Bobby, but at the end of the day the man was a terrorist and took his own life.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fake!, 22 Oct 2008
Take this book as a work of fiction and rip-roaring yarn, as the bloke is a total fake and was embarrassingly "outed" by the BBC as he was trying to peddle this book. Its not a bad read, just don't believe a word of it.

3.0 out of 5 stars not quite right, 12 Jan 2006
Not as good as other bbc production of the type such as "Space Race", "Space", "The Planets" etc. Firstly the crew and mission control are frankly not credible. The cast seems to have been chosen by the PC brigade. If anyone has ever seen documentaries about real astronauts, its amazing what utter geeks they are, depite NASAs best efforts to purport them as steely-eyed fly boys. Here they seem like hairdressers and students. They are almost like the crew in channel 4s "Space Cadets". Its not bad really, the effects are good, i just expected it to be better.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very entertaining, but ultimatly hogwash..., 12 Jun 2005
This is a very good book and very well written but unfortunatly describes in several cases rumours as facts (the Celebrating Agents etc), which later turn out to be false.
It is very possible that Israeli Agents were tracking the hijackers, as was the german, british and american intelligence agencies at the time. No-one has written a book called "the british connection" or the "german connection". This attack was unprecidented and in any case in Farenheit 911 Coldoleeza Rice clearly staes she had read report "Bin Laden Determined to Attack America" but decided to do nothing.
Im afraid im more inclined to believe that yes, everyone did have a bad day that day. I would recommend "The Hamburg Cell" as a far more credible an conceivable version of events.
