An outstanding work and a vitally important one. Besides presenting, as has been done many times before, the overwhelming and well-documented case for a CIA-orchestrated assassination and cover-up and an exposure of the bogus Warren Commission findings, James Douglass also digs deeper into Kennedy's turning towards peace, towards ending the Cold War, withdrawing from Vietnam, and reaching out to Castro, among other things which made him hated by the CIA, Pentagon brass, and the military industrial complex. He reveals Kennedy's courage and vision, his evolution from a hard-core Cold War warrior to a visionary for peace, and though Kennedy may have been killed, but he may have also, in partnership with Kruschev, helped save the world from a nuclear war. For this reaching out to enemies he was marked as a traitor and eliminated, but hope remains.

Riveting account of the world's most famous assassination. The author explores in depth the who, why, where, when and especially the how of the murder and conspiracy of a beloved President. The claims made by author, James W. Douglas, are supported by evidence either by personal interviews, documents and first hand witnesses. The case he makes that the CIA, Mafia and Cuban expatriates were responsible for Kennedy's murder is very compelling. If you believe the Warren Commission's Report of a lone gunman this tome may very well change your mind.

"Synopsis" by , Historian James Douglass proves not only that there was a conspiracy to assassinate JFK, but more importantly (for the first time) explains WHY.
