Well let me assure you of one thing, the book answers no such questions. If it had been written in 1965 the members of the Warren Commission would have been rubbing their hands with glee. As for the painstaking research and interviews that the authors were supposed to have undertaken then for the life of me I cannot see any results of their undertakings included in the book. Oswald is simply confirmed as an out and out communist who defected to Russia and whose disillusionment with life in the USA (and Russia) led him to murder the President, and by the way Officer JD Tippit. None of the other possible suspects, and there are many, are even put in the frame for consideration in the murders.
The book is written in the style of a novel, with thoughts and words being put into the characters minds and mouths which could never be substantiated. There are one or two decent diagrams e.g. on the Bay of Pigs incident, but certainly not much else, unless you wish to read about Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, and some of the Kennedy family's personal lives. With all the genuine, valid, research that has been undertaken over the last 45 or so years into the Assassination by some very competent authors and historians, it is quite staggering how all the evidence that has been uncovered can simply be glossed over or totally ignored by the authors of this book.
Reference to material sources are virtually non-existent, being confined to about 5 pages at the end of a book of over 300 pages.Read more ›
It is no coincidence the top political murders of the twentieth century involved left wing liberals: 1) the American president John Kennedy, 2) Italian prime minister Aldo Moro, and 3) the 33-day Pope who taunted right wing curial cardinals: "We have made of sex the greatest of sins, whereas it is nothing more than human nature and not a sin at all."
This book does a relatively good job of getting to the bottom of the 1963 Kennedy murder. The Vatican Murders: The Life and Death of John Paul I proves the hypothesis of Avro Manhattan of South Shield England: The conspiracy that planned the Great Vatican Bank Scandal was the same conspiracy that plotted the murder of Aldo Moro and John Paul I in 1978.
In reference to the JFK shooting:
(6) S E C O N D S
2 different rifles used
2 different kinds of ammunition used
2 different shooting locations
1 freak accident =
A newly assigned Secret Service agent by the name of, George Hickey, 'accidentally discharged' his AR-15 rifle while picking it up off the floorboard in the vehicle behind JFK after Hickey spotted Oswald firing from the window of the book depository, and in a 'freak accident' while the Secret Service vehicle sped forward caused the .223 round 'accidentally' fired from Hickey's AR-15 rifle to strike JFK in the head.
Oswald's first shot missed JFK, and struck the pavement according to witnesses.
George Hickey, turns to his right and spots Oswald in the window, and reaches for his AR-15 rifle taking the safety off.
Oswald's second shot strikes JFK and Connally.
And the 'freak accident shot' by George Hickey standing in the backseat of the open Secret Service vehicle strikes JFK.
There is a photo of Hickey holding a rifle and standing in the backseat of the open Secret Service vehicle behind JFK's vehicle prior to the third and fatal shot.
Gunpowder from the AR-15 rifle, could be smelled at street level by witnesses including Lt. Colonel Ralph Yarborough riding with LBJ in the third vehicle behind JFK, coming from the Secret Service vehicle behind, and to the left of JFK's vehicle.
This all occurred under (6) seconds.
The recent release of 'sealed' documents by a Federal Judge finally put the remaining pieces of the puzzle to the JFK shooting in perspective.Read more ›
