Russell details his many intriguing and disturbing encounters with individuals with special knowledge of the actual facts of the assassination. The possibility of mind control techniques created in the CIA MKULTRA program being used on Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby are explored, as well as the complicity of the Establishment Media in the government coverup that continues to this day. Russell writes boldly of the sham of the Warren Report, the CIA/FBI covert obstruction of the Jim Garrison prosecution of Clay Shaw, the deficiencies of the 1975 US Senate investigation of CIA activities relative to the JFK murder, and the heinous duplicity of the House Select Committee on Assassinations in 1979. A final chapter is a lengthy interview with Douglas Horne, Former Chief Analyst for Military records for the Assassination Records Review Board. Horne's laser focus on the medical evidence reveals shocking evidence of a carefully constructed falsification of the JFK autopsy materials to support the "official story" by obscuring wounds and fabricating bogus x-rays.
If you are in search of the truth of the events of November 22, 1963, "On the Trail of the JFK Assassins" is a must read.
who seemed to have firsthand knowledge of a plot and indicated so to the authorities only to be imprisoned and dismissed as a nutcase. Dick Russell's research reveals an interesting turn of the kaleidoscope that is Novemember 22, 1963, evoking more information in areas untouched by other researchers.
The new book is a very enjoyable read, as articles are organized chronologically which Russell wrote as he researched various aspects of the assassination over the years. As has been said, it is more reporting than speculation, a welcome relief when it comes to this intriguing subject. It will be particularly rewarding for those who have already read a lot about the Kennedy murder, as they will not have the retread sensation one encounters in a lot of "buff books." Russell is quite the professional journalist in this field. Indeed if we had more writer/researchers of his caliber, the progress desired by the American public might well have been achieved by now. But like a good mystery,
sometimes you don't want it to end, especially when conveyed by someone as skilled as Mr. Russell.
