Webberman and Canfield present a chilling theory behind who assasinated President Kennedy. This book answers the questions relating to who benefited most from the assasination and who had the power to cover it up. After reading this book, even hardline Castro/Mafia theorists will ponder over their conclusions

Format: Paperback
This wonderful book grows from the photos of Dealy Plaza tramps on captured Nov. 22, '63. Author Weberman had a website under the name of the book and it was so 'dangerous' that the FBI arrested him for possession of marijuana with intent to sell and his marvelous website melted away--that's how 'deadly' this book is! Some of the very shooters are pictured and documented and yet NO record of their arrest or interrogation in Dallas PD custody is left--Duh! Nixon may be implied merely as a dupe by deep-CIA machinations, but the Nixon/Watergate tapes do reveal the burglaries were really about the assassin's blow-back control, not political bungling. This is the best book yet I've read about the assassination, and if anyone cares about truth and history, and our present situation, this book is a must read!

Format: Paperback
This rather incredible book written in 1975 in the aftermath of the Watergate Affair deserves a revisiting in light of E. Howard Hunt's beside confession to his son St. John (published in Rolling Stone and purchasable online as a DVD). The book is very well documented and its narrative covers the waterfront. It concludes that the "CIA did it." And uses as its centerpiece a collection of pictures of three tramps caught and arrested while trying to make a getaway via a train parked in the rail yard adjacent to the now infamous Grassy Knoll in Dealey's Plaza. They eventually were released without being booked or even having their names recorded. The authors contend that these curiously cleanly shaven tramps were not only NOT tramps, but were CIA agents Hunt, Sturgis and Christ, participating in a CIA planned and executed assassination of JFK. They muster here an almost encyclopedic amount of data that supports their contention. One of their most important sources is the millions of pages of JFK files in the U.S. Archives.

In his confession, Hunt, after having lied about it and denied it repeatedly under oath in two trials involving law suits and when subpoenaed before the the House Committee on Assassinations, finally admits in his bedside confession that the CIA had planned and carried out the assassination but at the behest of LBJ. He cites himself as having been a "bit player" in the plan, but does not say exactly what that bit part was? According to his confession, the key CIA operatives involved, in addition to himself, were Bill Harvey, Cord Meyer, Frank Sturgis, and David Atlee Phillips. With the exception of Meyers, these are all names that we have seen associated with the assassination over and over in the last forty years.

Format: Paperback
This is a very early book linking Watergate burglar E.Howard Hunt to the JFK assassination via photos of the "three tramps" rounded up by Dallas police on November 22, 1963, minutes after the fatal shots were fired. The one differance that I have with the authors is their description of the taller tramp as being Frank Sturgis, another long time CIA operative, to me he looks like professional hit man Charles Harrelson. A great deal of good information is contained in this book. 4 Stars
