In addition (as if the assassination of our 35th President were insufficient ground to cover), Dick Russell also unearths remarkable new Intel on the mind-control programs of U.S. Intelligence (it's not just the CIA). That sheds new light on the "Manchurian Candidate" aspects of Intelligence-sanctioned assassinations, which also splashes new light on the issues surrounding Sirhan Bishara Sirhan and Lee Harvey Oswald. Russell tackles a very thorny issue and uncovers what become revelations spoken by those who were there and who know of what they speak, in much the same process as the riveting accounts of professional assassin Colonel Bill Bishop in "The Man Who Knew Too Much." If you don't know who Colonel Bishop was, you will also love reading that book. But get this one first. So if you think Sirhan was probably yet another "lone nut" and Oswald may actually have been able to do what they said he did and "mind-control" is only a theory -- well -- do us all a favor: please read this book!!
As a consequence, I'm not sure if people looking for a smoking gun or proof-positive there was a conspiracy will be satisfied by Russell's reporting. Still, anyone reading the book should come out amazed at the number of strange characters and weird leads. The book would make a great mini-series, IMO.
Although I've never subscribed to the "single-assassin theorists are all cognitively-challenged" argument, I will venture that anyone reading this book and still feeling absolutely sure Oswald acted alone is lacking curiosity, and lacking understanding of their own lack of understanding.
As per the bard, speaking through Hamlet
"There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy."
Dick Russell has showed us some of those things.
who seemed to have firsthand knowledge of a plot and indicated so to the authorities only to be imprisoned and dismissed as a nutcase. Dick Russell's research reveals an interesting turn of the kaleidoscope that is Novemember 22, 1963, evoking more information in areas untouched by other researchers.
The new book is a very enjoyable read, as articles are organized chronologically which Russell wrote as he researched various aspects of the assassination over the years. As has been said, it is more reporting than speculation, a welcome relief when it comes to this intriguing subject. It will be particularly rewarding for those who have already read a lot about the Kennedy murder, as they will not have the retread sensation one encounters in a lot of "buff books." Russell is quite the professional journalist in this field. Indeed if we had more writer/researchers of his caliber, the progress desired by the American public might well have been achieved by now. But like a good mystery,
sometimes you don't want it to end, especially when conveyed by someone as skilled as Mr. Russell.
It is entitled "Two Caskets, Two Autopsies, Two Brain Exams: The Disappearing Evidence".
Horne comments "Contained within our deposition transcripts and interview reports is unequivocal evidence that there was a U.S> government cover-up of the medical evidence in the Kennedy assassination."
Doesn't matter if you have read 50 books on the assassination, you will be amazed. Also Russ Baker's Family of Secrets is an absolute must. Amazing new stuff on H.W. in Dallas and Watergate. Really new. With links that leave the personal level and get to issues of structural economic power real quick.Family of Secrets: The Bush Dynasty, the Powerful Forces That Put It in the White House, and What Their Influence Means for America
