More About the Author

Barry Krusch has a bachelors degree in Psychology from Emory University located in Atlanta Georgia, and a Masters degree in Education from Hunter college in New York City. Mr. Krusch also attended law school at the University of Georgia for a year.

After working as an investigator for Atlanta legal aid for four years and a paralegal for four years, Mr. Krusch has worked as an instructional designer, senior instructional designer, and project manager for the last twenty years. His client list includes Bank of America, Wachovia, American Express, Chase, Hartford Life, Knowledge Transfer International, Procter & Gamble, and many others. In 2002, he was responsible for the preliminary instructional design and editing of 52 audio books for Drive2Learn, Inc..

Mr. Krusch is also author of several books. His first book, The 21st Century Constitution, published in 1992 by Stanhope Press, was reviewed by New York Law School professor Richard Bernstein in his book Amending America. In that book, Professor Bernstein stated that the The 21st Century Constitution "may well be the most thoughtful and thorough reframing of the Constitution yet attempted." His second book, Would the Real First Amendment Please Stand Up? was published in 1996. When available in PDF format, it has received over 100,000 downloads since that time. According to the online directory Excite, "If you've got the time, we've got an online book for you. Barry Krusch examines the 1st Amendment in detail and attempts to put the Supreme Court's revisions of the Constitution into a form the layperson can understand. You should know this stuff."

As a result of his works on the Constitution, Mr. Krusch has appeared on the Tom Snyder radio show, as well as C-SPAN. He is also listed as an encyclopedia entry in the Encyclopedia Of Constitutional Amendments.

Mr. Krusch's latest book is Impossible: The Case Against Lee Harvey Oswald, divided into three volumes. This extensive work, over 1000 pages, demonstrates conclusively that the notion of a "lone assassin" in the Kennedy assassination is a complete myth, in no way justified by the evidence, and that therefore any case against Lee Harvey Oswald based on the notion of a lone assassin must completely fail.

His book is one of the most discussed topics in the history of the JFK assassination forum, perhaps for the following reason:

Impossible is paired with a thought experiment called The JFK Challenge. If anyone demonstrates before a unanimous virtual jury of 12 arbitrators that he has distorted or omitted information in a way that materially affects the conclusions of the book, Krusch will award them $25,000.

As of this date, out of thousands of readers of the book, and hundreds of visitors to Internet forums, no one has yet accepted the Challenge.

I started reading Volume 1, and I didn't want to review this book until I was done with all three of them. Unfortunately, life happened, and I am still not done with volume 3. But I have to write this review, lest I forget the important things I want to say.

I have read probably 10, maybe 15 JFK books, cover to cover. I've read parts of many, many others. Some of the important books, like Rush to Judgment or Plausible Denial (his best) or Last Word, all by Mark Lane, or On the Trail of the Assassins by Jim Garrison, are easier reads and helped my understanding tremendously. Destiny Betrayed, JFK and Cuba by James DiEugenio, and The Last Investigation by Gaeton Fonzi, or Let Justice be Done by William Davy were harder, but so very much worth it. Some I just couldn't get through, like David Lifton's Best Evidence, or JFK and the Unspeakable, by James Douglass, are critically important to the genre, but I just haven't finished them. I never bothered with Posner's Case Closed (I own it, and I've cracked it open, but when I do take the time to read it, the sins of omission bother me too much to get too deep), and this goes double for Bugliosi's ReWriting (sic) History. I have read far more of the Warren Commission than of the HSCA report, but have read neither cover to cover.

But Barry Krusch's books are quite different. They are destined to become the Rosetta Stone of the JFK case. Krusch lets nothing pass - EVERY issue that needs to be discussed and proven, if you will, he takes it and gnaws it like a bone. He goes from the premise of "so you know nothing on the subject or have few opinions, huh? Or you are convinced that JFK was the lone assassin, huh? Let me show you how you are mistaken.

I have read probably way more than fifty books about the JFK assassination, and almost without exception each book has a conspiracy to tout. It was the CIA, or the Mafia, or the FBI, or the Military, or the drug lords in Viet Nam, or the Oil Barons in Texas, or LBJ, or perhaps different combinations of these groups. There is something to be said for each of those books, but the flaw in each one is that it is virtually impossible to pin the tail on any particular donkey as the force behind the conspiracy. If you focus on any one of those groups it looks guilty as hell, just as every suspect Robert Greysmith parades in front of us in Zodiac is obviously the killer.

A nice thing about Impossible: The Case Against Lee Harvey Oswald. Vol. 1 is that author Barry Krusch doesn't attempt to unravel the conspiracy. All he wants to do is to establish whether or not a case can be made against Oswald that could have been prosecuted. So in effect this is the very first book I've ever read where the author betrays no obvious bias in his treatment of the facts at hand. Krusch is concerned only with actual evidence and rigorous logic, not theories or speculations. When some speculating is necessary, though, he is careful to lay out all possibilities and discuss each in detail. I should state, though, that it is quite clear that he believes the case against Oswald will unravel, but that never gets in the way of his examination. And it's a relief to have to deal only with such a small, circumscribed area of the case and not have to bounce around from Dallas to Washington to Miami to New Orleans to Chicago and so on. Not that those books aren't valuable, it's just that it's easier for those spouting the official line to denigrate them in one way or another.

I've got a new hero: Barry Krusch! This might sound a bit strange, but one of the nice things about the JFK assassination is that, being 50 years ago now, it's possible to employ humor in one's argument without seeming tasteless. Barry Krusch is funny. That is one of the things that makes this book highly readable. But "make no mistake" as our politicians like to say: his wit does not detract from his savagely penetrating legal reasoning. What makes this book different from other JFK books I've read is its very strict adherence to courtroom-style defense of Lee Harvey Oswald, who, after all, we presume at the start to be innocent, as the law stipulates. Don't we?

Also, Krusch is a geek, so I've got an affinity with him there, being a database guy myself. This man scanned, indexed, and cross-referenced over 100 books on the Kennedy assassination to make a searchable master index, so when he wants to be sure he's got a subject covered, he KNOWS he's got it covered.

So, take his thoroughness, his methodology, his sense of humor, and his rigorous adherence to the rule of law, and then sit back and enjoy his total deconstruction of the case against Lee Harvey Oswald (or lack thereof, as it plainly turns out). He's got a standing offer of $25K for anyone who can successfully prosecute the case against Oswald to the satisfaction of an Amazon-based jury of peers. Bugliosi and others have been challenged to take him on, to pick up the easy $25K if they're so sure all the facts point towards Oswald's guilt. Somehow, nobody has taken him up on the challenge yet.

And that is very possibly because there IS no case against Lee Harvey Oswald, and any decent prosecutor knows that very well. Any honest one would admit it.
