So now I have a new hero - the author, Douglas Horne. This review is based only on the first of the five volumes of his report on the ARRB's (Assassination Records Review Board) work - attempting to secure the remaining undestroyed (or un-altered, as well as the obviously altered) documents and evidence that still exist. Douglas Horne is like a second generation conspiracy theorist picking up on the seminal work of David Lifton and progressing it further and in more detail in an attempt to clarify the true workings of the conspiracy, particularly the cover-up (at least in this first of five volumes). He has done a masterful job of first securing a position on the ARRB, then developing a working relationship with his immediate supervisor and finally exerting a major influence on both the selection of people to interview (both under oath and not) and on the direction and focus of the questioning. I can't wait to read the other four volumes and have already ordered them based on my reading of the first volume. This book is probably the most currently definitive work on un-covering the conspiracy and the subsequent cover-up. Bravo Douglas Horne!
The huge strengths of Mr Hornes compellingly-argued and wide-ranging evaluative work are both his intimate knowledge of and his objectivity towards the background evidence,especially the medical evidence, built up over many years, to which has been added an equally detailed knowledge and understanding from released records and new interviews especially from those who took part in JFKs highly compartmentalised autopsy at Bethesda Naval Hospital which Mr Horne is therefore able to meticulously put together with a minimum of speculation and a maximum of reasoned and logical inference from the known and uncovered facts.In most cases these facts speak for themselves such is the precision, depth and overview of Mr Hornes research and his deep concern and honesty over the evidence itself.Where the evidence is not 100% for any judgment or opinion Mr Horne reaches, and he is right to presume his readership wants such evaluation ,he tells the reader this is so, and always allows the reader space to reach his/her own deductions,true marks of a liberal historian of deep scholarship and personal integrity.Read more ›
Then came ANOTHER masterpiece of even greater length (spread over 5 volumes) that, once again, turned my world upside down (some would say, right side up)!
Douglas P. Horne, the author of this latest masterpiece, "Inside The Assassination Records Review Board," has achieved a literary feat worthy of a Pulitzer Prize. His 5 volume study (5 books in one, so to speak) reads almost like the Defense's side of the case; the perfect answer to the Prosecution's ("Reclaiming History") masterful plea to the bench. I am amazed and highly impressed with the book as both a very inspired, well put together piece of art (it's a great read!) AND for the substance--and length---of the (counter) argument. While Vince Bugliosi did the seeming impossible back in 2007 (convincing me, however begrudgingly, that Oswald acted alone, despite others who wished JFK ill), Douglas P.Read more ›
