Review

Salandria is a marvel...False Mystery bears witness to his scathing criticism of the flaws of the Warren Commission. -- JFK/Deep Politics Quarterly

From the Inside Flap

Vincent J. Salandria has been an attorney in the Philadelphia public school system since 1967. He studied law at the University of Pennsylvania, and in the 1950s and 1960s was a volunteer lawyer with the American Civil Liberties Union. He began studying the Kennedy assassination on November 22, 1963. In 1967 he served as advisor to Jim Garrison in the New Orleans District Attorney’s investigation of the Kennedy case.

Salandria is a lifelong resident of Philadelphia and an avid tennis player. Nicknamed "Hank" for his boyhood admiration of slugger Hank Greenberg, his favorite baseball team remains the Detroit Tigers.

Without going into the tedious and boring line by line rebuttal of DVP's review, which, by the way, is the prototype of all the STB's apologists and which they learned from the Warren Report-bury all the relevant facts and events with a ton of minutiae and irrelevant detail and twist the details and totally deny the laws of physics and probability until you're bludgeoned into mute acceptance of the Warren Report. Forget all the sleight of hand and devious manipulation of the SBT's and focus on one single, simple undeniable fact-the shot that blew off the right side of JFK's head came from the front. The proof? The direction of the splatter of blood and skull and tissue fragments-all of which went to the right rear, as evidenced by the splatter that hit the motorcycle cop who was at the right rear of the limousine, Also the skull and brain fragments that Jackie tried to retrieve from atop the trunk of the car. How can anyone honestly and logically deny that only by a frontal shot could there been such a splatter that went only to the rear? A shot from the TSB would have splattered forward and the skull fragments perhaps hit the driver. There's no possible way that a shot from the TSB would have splattered backwards. No way unless the laws of physics were suspended. A rifle shot after the spray of the initial impact projects the matter forwards along its path. The matter or splatter went to the area of the right rear of the limousine. Remember the immortal words of the great apologist Walter Cronkite-"When you're shooting at a President anything is possible." Walter,for what it's worth, admitted privately that he didn't belive the WC but had to support it for reasons of National Security.Read more ›

Format: Hardcover
A collection of essays from 1964-1999 by a Philadelphia lawyer who was one of the important assassination researchers during the mid-to-late sixties. He wrote many important articles but did not publish any books. He was a Penn Law graduate and an ACLU consultant. He told future HSCA investigator Gaeton Fonzi in late 1964 that there was a coverup going on in the JFK case. Fonzi later wrote: "I thought he was crazy. If you do not recall that time, you cannot comprehend what a discordant thing it was then to contend that an official Government report might be wrong - especially one which had been issued by a panel of men with such lofty public reputations. I know it's hard for the post-Watergate generation to understand, but then almost everyone still believed what Government officials said...well, Salandria had to be nuts."

Thanks to a person who posted on my review of another book on the execution of President Kennedy, I was told my thinking was in line with the legendary Mr.Vincent Salandria. I ordered two books, False Mystery, Essays on The Assassination of JFK and Correspondence with Vincent Salandria with Michael Morrissey. I read False Mystery, a collection of speeches and essays by Mr. Salandria first. I was stunned that this virtual anonymous first generation researcher nailed the execution of President Kennedy as early as 1964 using virtually nothing but the "Johnson Commission" records, Newton's Laws Of Physics and common sense. Despite what the prostitutes working for the "Intelligence" Agencies and disinformation specialist's "contribute" to debunking Mr. Salandria's writings and speeches, there is no doubt left to the open minded reader that the execution of President Kennedy was a state sponsored Coup d'état originating from the highest levels of the government. Specifically the Military, CIA and the Eastern Power Brokers (see Battling Wall Street by Don Gibson for more on this).

The analysis is brilliant and shows that an honest government would not have convicted Lee Harvey Oswald on the afternoon of November 22, 1963. How do we know this? Both Theodore White and Pierre Salinger confirmed that while on planes from Dallas and Honolulu respectively, McGeorge Bundy radioed the two planes carrying Johnson and the Cabinet back to Washington DC that LHO was in fact the murderer of the President, hours before he was charged and before any investigation of the crime had begun.

Vincent Salandria (still alive in Jan. 2013) is one of the greatest JFK assassination researchers ever. This book contains a lot of his commentary & analysis on the JFK assassination.

Salandria was in Dallas on the ground investigating in 1964. Salandria was in New Orleans in 1967 helping Jim Garrison.

Salandria was slicing the Warren Report farce into tiny little slivers in real time in the 1960's.

My suggestion is to read everything Salandria has ever written.

Salandria will tell you US military intelligence murdered John Kennedy for Cold War reasons.

I would add in Lyndon Johnson as a key plotter for personal reasona as well.

Read everything you can by Salandria.

1) False Mystery: Essays on the Assassination of JFK by Vincent Salandria
2) Correspondence with Vincent Salandria by Michael Morrissey
3) History Will Not Absolve Us by E. Martin Schotz
4) Praise From a Future Generation: The Assassination of John F. Kennedy and the First Generation Critics of the Warren Report by John Kelin
5) Google "Vincent Salandria False Mystery Speech."
6) Google "Vincent Salandria Spartacus" for his bio
