A deserving-to-be read book (have a pot of coffee nearby) which opens up reality, not a replay of the usual misinformation stories. An enhanced version of the Zapruder film (on youtube) appears at the site on 11/15/13, and clearly the horrible head shot originates from the front, most likely from the railroad overpass, which is partially seen in the last moments of this film (bushes obscures the pass at the point a human would be positioned, say a Lucien Conein assassin-type). [The review by the Library Journal is the most bizarre and egregiously ignorant piece of slop I've ever read; certainly not the work of any educated individual. I would direct anyone and everyone to read the legislation, executive orders and presidential directives from the Kennedy administration, along with Prof. Gibson's outstanding book, "Battling Wall Street: The Kennedy Presidency" and those chapters of Richard Parker's (Harvard faculty) biography on John Kenneth Galbraith dealing with the Kennedy administration which portrays an embattled administration, at war with his joint chiefs of staff, the CIA, Averell Harriman, whom they were about to fire, et cetera. The Library Journal reviewer appears grossly ignorant of the vast importance of the NASA/Moon program from the Kennedy administration, as well as the direction from that administration, leading to the appointment of JCR Licklider and the subsequent creation of the Internet (which somehow is always explained as emanating from DARPA, without fully explaining how it was directed by the Kennedy administration!). The reviewer says "The reader shares her anger at seeing Lee Harvey Oswald receiving excellent medical treatment in the same hospital where President Kennedy was pronounced dead and where her husband almost died from an assassin's bullet." Except, and for the record, Oswald was operated on, in his last remaining time alive, without the benefit of anesthesia! Oswald served his country and his president most patriotically but, like President Kennedy, was brutally murdered by this country's traitors and his last remaining moments were filled with unimaginable pain and suffering.]
