Like the author, I am former military man who sensed something very ominous on my first visit to Dealey Plaza in Dallas. It felt to me like an ambush site. Indeed, this is exactly what is was, as vividly depicted in Craig Roberts' excellent book. If you want to understand what really happened on this blackest day of American history, you simply must read this book. The chances are it will go quickly for you. I ordered the book through Amazon and found it on my door step on a Saturday evening. The following morning at 1:30am, I turned the final page of the narrative with the assurance that I finally understood what really happened on November 22, 1963 and, most importantly, why. In particular, I was intrigued that the author was led to investigate the facts through his warrior instincts and that his investigation led far beyond the scope of what he originally thought to be an unsolved murder. The trail of this investigation leads beyond the Mafia, the CIA, the FBI, the US military, and all of the usual suspects right up to the small group of extraordinarily powerful men who truly control this world. To Craig Roberts, Bravo Zulu! The good news is that, in the end, despite the sinister plotting of the terrible forces uncovered in this outstanding work, the good good guys will win and win huge!
I bought this book expecting yet another perspective on the Kennedy assaination, that of a sniper. While I got some of that I got much more. It begins with some sniper insight (the author was a military sniper) and proceeds on to the normal discrepancies with the Kennedy autopsy and the many unanswered questions we have heard in many books before. But amidst all this is some interesting insight that is offered by the author, gained through his military experience and his former job of working on airplanes, the same kind that Air Force One (at the time) was converted from - the Boeing 707. With this information and with information obtained from Carlos Hatchock (who wrote his own excellent book titled "Marine Sniper, 93 Confirmed Kills) he explains the impossibility of the lone gunman theory. He explains in detail the many enemies that Kennedy made during his administration, The Mafia, The Military, The Cubans, The CIA, The Council on Foreign Relations, The FBI, Lyndon Johnson, the list sometimes seems endless. The book does take off into unexpected territory by progressing to areas such as MACV in Vietnam, Harry Truman, the assination of Abraham Lincoln, James Monroe, John D. Rockefeller, JP Morgan, Howard Hughes, Watergate and much more. But it is all tied together in the end with the final assumption of who killed JFK - and it is very believable. Every conspiracy book on the subject presents itself in ways to be believed by the readers. But this book touches on one point and presents it in clear and concise way that none of the other books I have read can. It answers the question, "Who could pull off a conspiracy of this magnitude and have enough power and influence to cover it up for 40 years, even though every free thinking individual would know it was a consipiracy?Read more ›
If you want a comprehensive and thorough investigation of the JFK assassination and the real answers and players, this would be an excellent place to start. Craig Roberts has painstakingly spent hour upon hour researching his material and has government documentation (included in the book) to boot. So much of what you read here was never researched by the Warren Commission, never revealed by the mass media, and covered up by the FBI and other governmental agencies to mislead the American public. The original JFK investigation (Warren Commission, etc.) was, without a doubt, one of the most heinous, deplorable, and saddest travesties of justice ever forced on the American public. This book will show you why and open your eyes. Not only does Craig Roberts investigate the assassination, later in the book you will find very revealing information and names involved in power structures that have played a part in very significant happenings in the history of this country. It's not a pretty picture and if you are a patriotic, down to earth American citizen, you will probably find yourself angry and disgusted with what has happened to America and her citizens. And you'll have every right to feel that way. If you find this book revealing, you should also read Craig Roberts book JFK: The Dead Witnesses. This explores in detail all of the mysterious and unusual deaths that have surrounded those who were connected to the JFK assassination either directly or indirectly. Last but not least, if you want an explosive account of government cover-ups and conspiracies all the way from World War II germ warfare up to the downing of TWA Flight 800 and everything in-between, Craig Roberts book THE MEDUSA FILE will make your hair stand on end.Read more ›
If you want to know how the world REALLY works, read this book! The title is a bit mis-leading but it will become clear later why it's like that. Not a bunch of theories and half-cocked stories, this book is well reserched and lots of evidence put forth. One glaring example is certain people's rise to the annals of power in America and how they got there. John Kennedy learned the hard way; don't mess with someones livelyhood. In this case the global bankers and the Federal Reserve. Read this book and you'll know who REALLY runs this country and why our Founding Fathers were so dead set against a central banking system!
