Editorial Reviews

Taped on September 10, 1981.
Our guests start out wrangling unprofitably over whether Mr. Blakey should have called Mr. Belin to testify before the House Committee on Assassinations; but once we settle down to the substantive matter, the interest level is high indeed. Blakey: "Our disagreement with the [Warren] Commission ultimately is based on supplementary evidence... What they did they did well; it's what they didn't have access to." Buckley: "In other words, if you had been running the Warren Commission, you would probably have come to their findings?" Blakey: "I probably would have, yes, on the evidence available to them. For example, they did not know about the CIA-Mafia plots...to kill Castro. That bore on the possibility of a Castro retaliation.... They didn't have access to the great wealth of information that we did about organized crime, principally the conversations of the mob figures themselves discussing John Kennedy, the hate that they had for him and his brother Robert--actually discussing their deaths.... While they had the tape of the recording of the police officer [whose microphone was open during the assassination] they did not subject it to the kind of sophisticated acoustical and statistical analysis that we did."

5.0 out of 5 stars Buckley is a Gem December 29, 2013

Watched this on the 50th anniversary of the Dallas murder and was glad I chose to take the time with this true life perspective than the mixed analogies and conjecture of Stone’s JFK.
There is more than enough concern generated in this discussion.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but... May 10, 2013

I actually prefer documentaries - there is nothing at all wrong with this format, it's strictly personal preference! There has been SO much "speculation" about this tragic event that I would like to see more of any new information that is "fact based" that might have been discovered in the recently declassifed material.

2.0 out of 5 stars Interruptions and Pretentious March 30, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Never a fan of the counsel from the House Select Committee, especially when he pushes his "The Mafia did it" theory. This is essentially a small panel discussion with each person trying to talk over the next because they all have an extraordinarily high opinion of themselves. If you have watched everything else about the assassination, then like me, you will probably watch this; and then be surprised that you took the time to actually write a review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great television August 29, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
William F. Buckley's shows still provide great television after all these years. This 1980s-era offering is a fascinating, spirited, and surprisingly fresh discussion about the 1963 Kennedy assassination: was it a lone gunman or a conspiracy? You certainly won't find such intelligent, articulate public affairs programming anywhere on the airwaves today. Mr. Buckley is sorely missed by his many fans (such as this reviewer).
