Book Description

Twelve little-known accounts by JFK assassination eyewitnesses, investigators, and other principal figures that shed new light and offer new evidence about the greatest unsolved murder case of the 20th century. Author Bill Sloan, award-winning journalist and co-author of JFK: THE LAST DISSENTING WITNESS, was working at the City Desk of the DALLAS TIMES HERALD just four blocks away when the fatal shots were fired. He helped cover the fast-moving sequence of events that followed, and later interviewed many of the people involved. Accounts in THE KENNEDY CONSPIRACY include those of Ed Hoffman, who saw the man who shot the president (and it wasn’t Oswald)—but was unable to communicate it to the authorities because he was deaf and mute; Gary Cornwell, deputy chief counsel of the House Select Committee on Assassinations, who saw the classified information still withheld from the public, and reveals how the FBI turned the investigation into “a joke, a farce, and a national disgrace”; James Tague, who was wounded by a bullet that the Warren Commission insisted was never fired; and Dr. Joe D. Goldstritch, who was in the Parkland ER when Kennedy’s body was brought in, and who witnessed the surgical procedure that destroyed the neat entry wound in the president’s throat.

Bill Sloan was sitting across the city desk at The Dallas Times Herald when a rewrite man answered a police reporter's phone call, leaped to his feet and shouted, "Shots fired at the motorcade! JFK may have been hit!"

Thus began, on Friday, November 22, 1963, an episode of epic proportions in our nation's history. And nowhere did its immediate impact land more forcefully than at The Times Herald, on Pacific Avenue just a few blocks from the infamous Texas School Book Depository. Organized chaos reigned as the roomful of journalists began to cope with what was, by far, the biggest story they'd ever encountered.

On that fateful day, Sloan, the now highly regarded author of chronicles of Pacific battles during World War II and the Korean War, was a young reporter and copy editor on Dallas's now-defunct evening newspaper. He quickly became one of the busiest and most productive staff members chasing myriad angles of the assassination story. Interest in every detail related to this tragic event soared, and continues today as its 50th anniversary approaches.

(Aside: I was a co-worker with Sloan on the day of the assassination. I had walked two blocks over to Main Street and watched the presidential procession go by, and by the time I got back to the paper, the tragedy unfolding down the street and around the corner had already struck the newsroom like a thunderbolt.)

You don't have to be an assassination aficionado to be interested in the under-reported or unreported facts found in "The Kennedy Conspiracy," Bill Sloan's absorbing collection of side-stories that were generally glossed over in the aftermath of the assassination. Most of these 12 accounts of individuals and events were either ignored or treated lightly by the Warren Commission.

This small jewel of a book is packed with info.you won't find anywhere else.Some of the chapters are on well known assassination figures such as Bill Newman, Ed Hoffman, and James Tague, but Sloan's writing is crisp, chilling, and powerful and so it all comes alive in their own words and Sloan's research. As a former Dallas newsman he was able to interview people that I'd surmise were off limits to researchers, and this book initially came out in 1993, so many of the folks he talked too are now dead. The chapter with Dr. Joe Goldstritch is really interesting, as well as a former Secret Service Agent whose main theory sounds like a doozy, but he does have some important info. as a backstory. like so many,Goldstritch, the afforementioned, and countless others, if his main observations are true, then the whole JFK murder changes as to what happened.The JFK Assassination is a bottomless well of mystery, intigue, and no one theory answers it all,everywhere is major contradiction and nothing adding up. Yet whatever one believes, or doesn't, this book is a valuable addition.

This is a very useful book about the JFK assassination. Without intending any disrespect to the author, it is well written in a Reader's Digest style. This is a good thing. The 12 stories are complete and compelling. All or some may be "revelations" depending on the reader's previous involvement and interest in the assassination.

Many assassination researchers are getting "long in the tooth" and I guess Mr. Sloan would fall into that category. It has been almost 50 years since the Crime of the Century was committed. It is time to reframe the subject for a broader audience. THE KENNEDY CONSPIRACY: 12 STARTLING REVELATIONS ABOUT THE JFK ASSASSINATION does just that. The fact is that most people living in America today do not a have first-hand knowledge of "the big event." For many of them it is ancient history.

However, considering the nature of the crime and its continuing cover up by the media and the government, it is truly contemporary history. This "elephant" continues to remain unnoticed in our nation's "living room". Any and all of today's hot items of concern such as national elections, the economy, the declining value of the dollar, and the entire "Terrorism/Patriot Act"-fur ball hinge on this pivot point of history. If Jack Kennedy's head was blown off by a "lone nut" then we can move along, but if it was a conspiracy and it was covered up by the highest officials in the land for 50 years, then someone needs to pay the price to permit us to advance honestly as a country. A new house cannot be built on quicksand and a quality future cannot be built on a heinous public lie.

With regard to content, all the stories are compelling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Little-known facts about a well-known assassination October 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The new E-book by Bill Sloan really opened my eyes. It recounts truly shocking tales of people, most of whom were innocently involved in the Kennedy assassination. Had they been investigated, these stories MIGHT have changed history.

For example, Ed Hoffman saw it happen. He saw the killer--only it wasn't just A killer--it was TWO killers. They both had guns. And they weren't in the school book depository, it was the grassy knoll, just as many JFK conspiracy theorists say. Yep, pretty simple, open-and-shut case. One minor problem--Ed is a deaf/mute. But, surmounting THAT problem, the FBI agent with whom he FINALLY spoke, doesn't remember much of the interview and/or doesn't believe him. Scratch the one guy who was really in a position to dispute the "magic bullet".

Then there is Gary Cornwall. He was in a pretty good position, too. After all, in 1977, he WAS deputy chief counsel of the House Select Committee on Assassinations. He DID see all the classified information, including that still withheld from the public. Even information the Warren Commission left out of the 889 pages of "facts". Unfortunately, he states that the FBI handling of the info, turned the entire investigation into "a joke, a farce, and a national disgrace". Scratch him, too.

James Tague, was standing on the curb on the south side of the street just as the Kennedy limo, with Kennedy mortally wounded, sped to Parkland Hospital. An instant before, he'd felt something on his cheek and--what was that?--blood? Cause by a fragment of a bullet? And something that appeared to be a bullet was found in the grass in the area. A picture of the bullet appeared in the Ft. Worth Star Telegram. One problem--the Warren Commission said Oswald couldn't have fired it.
