Corsi's essential argument is that the plot to kill Kennedy was hatched by military and financial elites who were displeased with Kennedy's unwillingness to go along with their plans for a New World Order. Presenting new and overlooked evidence, Dr. Corsi argues his case with thorough documentation and persuasive analyses that offers an enlightening perspective for the reader.
His argument that it was powerful elements within the government and their allies in the military-industrial complex and financial institutions is also a more plausible theory than others that have been suggested due to the fact that they would've had the ability to cover up the conspiracy and they directly benefitted from the death of JFK. They were able to increase America's involvement in Vietnam and create the kind of military that would be able to protect their interests across the world. It offers a theory for why America would get involved in such conflicts as Iraq and Syria when there seems to be no vested interest for our country to get involved.
Whether you believe his theory or not, this book is an engaging read and offers a new perspective on the assassination that shocked a nation and changed the course of history. I recommend this book as it looks to be the best account of the assassination that has been published so far.
- The author does a credible job of rationalizing the murder of officer Tippit;
- There is a startling and convincing discussion of the possibility of there being "two" Lee Harvey Oswalds;
- The author makes a very compelling argument for a grassy knoll shooter ......
I was appalled by the sloppiness of the editing - to name a few:
- Numerous cases of words used in incorrect context - sadly something I have observed in other books, thanks to, I am sure the reliance upon spell check tools and laziness;
- Work by another author named "Epstein" is cited and referred to later on as "Lipton";
- At one point in the book, the assassination date is given as November 22, 1962 !!!!! An absolutely unforgiveable editing error made even more so by a reference to LBJ's presidency in that year.
I cannot understand why I, after reading this book one time, find these errors when there are, I am sure, people who are paid to do this. And, to the author, your name is on this book - didn't you take the time to read it before it went into final printing?
As to the overall credibility of the book itself I give it a C. I did find it an overall engaging read and, again, there were some very interesting points made as noted above, however, I actually stopped reading it when it placed George Bush Sr as potentially present at the assassination! I was reminded of the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper album - try to find the famous faces in this picture.
Too, there was a lot of information, most notably when it discussed the organized crime aspect, that was already familiar to me and I am sure to other readers familiar with Kennedy assassination publications.Read more ›
I was not swayed by the KGB defector who claimed Khrushchev was seeking revenge for the Cuban Missile Crisis. Not true. James Douglass has written a masterpiece in JFK & The Unspeakable, Why He Died & Why It Matters debunking this nonsense. This chapter Oswald, The KGB, And The Plots To Assassinate JFK IN Chicago And Tampa is accurate except for the Khrushchev part. Chicago and Tampa were real assassination attempts
on President Kennedy. To my pleasant surprise Mr. Corsi gives full credit to one courageous Secret Service Agent who assisted in the Chicago attempt on November 2, 1963. That would of course be Abraham Bolden, who would suffer significantly for truth telling in 1964 after attempting to reach the "Johnson Commission" with information about the attempts on President Kennedy's life and the lax, at best, security surrounding him.
The chapter on the Roots Of The JFK Assassination - A Banana Republic, The CIA And The Mob is an excellent primer on the skullduggery of the CIA acting to protect the neo-colonial masters by Coup d'état's and assassinations.Read more ›
