"On November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was murdered in front of hundreds of onlookers. Everything was over in mere seconds, but the events of that day have been the subject of heated debate for five decades. The presidential commission tasked with finding the truth, headed by then-Chief Justice Earl Warren, published its findings the following year--Oswald had acted alone--but the report did little to quell conspiracy theorists. Many seized on what they saw as inconsistencies in the report and branded the whole investigation a cover-up. Warren himself calmly dismissed the criticism, assuring his fellow commission members that 'history will prove us right.' Now, in this eye-opening new account of the Commission and its findings, Howard P. Willens sets out to prove that Warren's advice was prescient. Willens, one of the few surviving staff members of the Warren Commission, supervised the investigation from the very beginning and has waited until now to silence the critics and well-intentioned armchair detectives. Drawn from Willens' own journals and extensive notes on the investigation--which have never before been published--History Will Prove Us Right tells the true and complete story, perhaps for the first time, of every aspect of the investigation into one of the century's most harrowing events from a uniquely first-person perspective." -- Provided by publisher.

Overwhelming Evidence . . . . .

A week or so ago, BBC featured a show interviewing lying traitor scum who had once been on the Warren Commission (that crap weasel whitewash of the JFK assassination), Howard P. Willens, et al.

Those filthy scum kept repeating the lie, "overwhelming evidence" --- that there was overwhelming evidence that Lee Oswald murdered President Kennedy and Officer Tippit.

The one supposed witness to Officer Tippit's murder was a waitress from a nearby diner, Helen Louise Markham, who was UNABLE to identify Oswald from the police line-up!
Other witnesses, who were never called up by that crap weasel Warren Commission bunch, exactly identified two men who were fleeing the Tippit murder scene, one fitting the description of Jack Ruby, the other fitting the description of Ruby's roommate. The two were running in the direction of Ruby's apartment, located exactly two blocks from the murder scene.

At the time of the murder, Lee Oswald was situated within the Texas Theatre, most likely to meet and confer with his Dallas Police contact, Officer Tippit, who worked at that theatre in the evenings.

So in the space of several days, President John F. Kennedy, his alleged-but-never-proven assassin Lee Oswald, and Oswald's police contact, Officer Tippit, were murdered, conveniently closing the thread. Jack Ruby, former CIA asset (involved with Carribean gun-running), lived on, as did international assassin, Jean Souetre.

We now know, due to an accidentally released declassified CIA document in 1977 --- when CIA Director Stansfield Turner was laying off large numbers of CIA personnel --- that Jean Souetre was deported from Dallas only hours after the murder of President Kennedy. (CIA Document #632-796, "Expulsion of Jean Souetre from the US")

So where's all this so-called "overwhelming evidence," Willens????????

Junk book. Read Reclaiming Parkland by James DiEugenio and Breach of Trust by James McKnight instead.
