None of these witnesses were called before the Commission!

Growing up in New England, I have a great distaste for the sort of hippie or the anti-establishment nut case conspiracy theorists. In college, I wanted to write a paper supporting the Warren Commission's findings in order to spite the nut cases I had grown up around. I picked up this book expecting to tear it's arguments a part, however, Mark Lane ended up converting me. Mark Lane is one of the few people to take Ford's challenge and comb through the many volumes of "evidence" that the Warren Commission left behind. He points out many flaws and out right distortions of facts that the government made in their report. He is no "We did not land on the moon" kind of conspiracy theorist, but more a concerned citizen who was disturb by what he found and decided to write a book on it. His arguments are cohesive, well organized, and supported by many facts. It is a must read for anyone who is researching or interested in the assassination of JFK.

I first heard of Mark Lane (ML) in 1961 when he revealed that the Republican Speaker of the NY Assembly was part owner of a firm that could get the contract to build "fallout shelters" in NY state. The bill was defeated, and Mark Lane was later dropped from his Democratic Party office. When ML read the news report of Lee Harvey Oswald's guilt, he wrote an article that noted the contradictions. ML was then asked to be Oswald's lawyer before the Warren Commission. ML continued his investigation into the Warren Report; this book is his critique. ML gave lectures on his findings. David S Lifton was in the audience one day. DSL began to investigate the Warren Report and other articles. He then wrote "Best Evidence", the first book to point to "alterations of the wounds" to cover up the shootings from the front.

The Introduction by Hugh Trevor-Roper says the Warren Commission's function was to pass judgment on the facts given to it. They depended on the FBI, the Secret Service, and the police; did the latter reach a conclusion that was seconded by the Warren Commission? [The book "Act of Treason" by Mark North presents a final judgment and resolution of the JFK Assassination.] Why didn't the Warren Commission have a Devil's Advocate to represent the interests of the accused? The assumption that Oswald acted alone was take for granted: the fix was in. The Warren Report must be judged by the validity of its arguments. Many have found defects in it. HTR says "a pattern was made to emerge out of the evidence .. and seemed to subordinate the evidence to it" (p.10). One of the most important questions is: how did Patrolman Tippit know to stop Oswald? Evidence which seems solid at first fades away like a mirage when it is investigated (p.11).

It's good to read an investigation by a criminal attorney during the weeks and months that followed the assassination of JFK and the plethora of facts that undermine the conclusion of the Warren Commission that Oswald acted alone. In the ensuing years that conclusion has been discounted by new evidence and Mark Lane's writing has been validated.

I like this book,because it gave details and background as to what really happened.It will cause the reader not to hurry through this book.So when reading take your time. Not much to dislike,confusing in certain details.But if you take your time it is something you will want to read.Good for a reference guide when reading other books on this tragedy .I would recommend this book to any body for the insight of what really happened .
