This is an absolutely wonderful book. I read it in two huge gulps. It contains nothing I didn't already know, so as far as that goes, I didn't get anything out of it. But its value does not lie in revealing new information. It lies in the way the information is handled.
But for many people, at least some of what the author presents will be new, because many of the small details have not filtered down to the average American, and some not even to the average JFK assassination enthusiast, I would think. For example, I would bet money that many people do not know that the phrase “with a Coke” was excised from sworn testimony. See, the problem of Oswald encountering a policeman on the second floor with a Coke in his hand caused a lot of problems for the time line needed to get Oswald from the sixth floor to the second, and those precious moments spent putting change in the machine, getting the bottle, opening it, and turning around walking a few steps before encountering the policeman, well, those moments needed to be taken back. So the story changed, and the new story had Oswald buying the Coke after the encounter. It's thousands of little things like this that make no sense if the story is as simple and clear cut as the WC apologists claim.
The format of the book is very reader friendly. 50 lies, one after the other. Boom, boom, boom,..., and most dealt with in a few pages. But there's a lot going on in those pages. And every lie is clearly a lie. NO (honest) person can argue that the lies he presents are in fact true (see S. V. Anderson's one-star review for an example of someone trying, though). Each lie is proved very simply to be a lie. CE399 takes up several of the lies by itself, because there are lies embedded in lies.Read more ›
Dr. Moore's book is superb. It is written in a highly approachable style and thoroughly documented.
Moore's book points out the hype and dribble based in the reliance of Gerald Posner and Vincent Bugliosi on the flawed and not so complete Warren Report. Aside from the explanation in Crossfire of the two TSBD breakrooms, Moore's book is the only source to completely highlight the terms of its significance in Oswald's not having shot President Kennedy.
Specifically, the lunchroom was located on the 1st floor of the TSBD and employee termed "the Domino Room" probably for its pattern and decorations. The 2d floor TSBD was actually a snack and vending machine breakroom. The confusion was purposely created by the Warren Report which falsely lead reader's to believe that only the 2d floor Breakroom was associated with Lee Oswald on Friday, 22 November 1963. The thoroughness of Moore's discussion is refreshing.
Another area of completeness concerns the account Moore gives of police officer Tippit's last patrol on that deadly Friday. Further, it strongly points away from Oswald as being the police officer's shooter.
The book reads quickly. This is a book to acquire, read and retain for its arguments against the simplistic hype and venom of debunkers such as McAdams, von Pein, Posner, Bugliosi.
This particular subject has been flogged, folded, spindled and mutilated many, many times over the past few decades. However, Dr. Lance Moore puts a fresh slant on an old controversy: the veil of mystery over John F. Kennedy's assassination. Chock full of information, sources, quotes and intriguing concepts, Killing JFK: 50 Years, 50 Lies offers the reader a veritable plethora of cover-ups, painstaking examination of quotes from numerous sources, documents, transcripts, and even a literal frame by frame analysis of the infamous Zapruder footage. Dr. Moore weaves a compelling account, eschewing the typical chronological order of events, to create a non-linear series of key times, dates, and people-both famous and not-so-famous-into his narrative,thoroughly exploring every nuance of the fateful day (and, more significantly, the ensuing events subsequent to the tragic event). Was Kennedy's death the result of one deranged gunman? Or are the conspiracy theorists correct, with all the dark implications of what could eventually come to light? Moore gives a painstaking examination of every link in this ponderous chain, leaving little if any nook, cranny or crevice unexplored. It's hard to put this one down although, due to the aforementioned non-linear format in which he presents the information, it can indeed be picked up again and again. That will serve the reader well, as there is sheer sensory overload here. This onion has many layers to unravel, which will keep the reader absorbed for many hours. There's room on your shelf for this one.
Lance Moore is to be highly commended for a very witty, well researched, and well written account of the JFK assassination case; very well done, indeed. I was most impressed with Moore's overall knowledge of the murder, his take on the evidence for conspiracy, and, last but certainly not least, his thorough dismantling of Warren Commission apologists like David Von Pein, John McAdams, Vince Bugliosi, and Gerald Posner.
Perhaps what is most impressive about this fine volume is its compatibility and user-friendly feel: it is worthwhile for both the novice AND the well-read, seasoned researcher (and all points in between). It never ceases to amaze me how many really good books on this subject have been written in the last few years; Moore's book is another instant classic.
