Valenti pressures the History Channel, and proves the point!,
This review is from: Blood, Money & Power: How L.B.J. Killed J.F.K. (Hardcover)
Anyone questioning the veracity of Barr McClellan's information would be fully convinced after watching the embarassing job of back-peddaling that Jack Valenti and other powerful Johnson administration millionaires forced upon the History Channel in a rebuttal of November's broadcast of "the Guilty Men" documentary (based in part on some of the evidence in McClellan's insightful book). Three dubious "historians" were paid to rebut the evidence in McClellan's book and the History Channel documentary... but instead of dissecting any of McClellan's 68 exhibits of courtroom quality evidence, they chose instead to attack his character through complete falsehoods about McClellan's past. They glossed over McClellan's 14 years as a member of the Clark Law Firm (handling all of the legal, personal and professional business transactions for L.B.J.), and blatantly lied about the circumstances surrounding McClellan's departure from the firm and their attempts to discredit him with accusations (...)(which were fully dismissed and characterized as harrassing abuses of power by the Clark-Texas-Power mob). Now the Texas / Johnson apologists have pressured the History Channel to present a one-hour "discussion" about the facts presented in McClellan's book and the "Guilty Men" documentary. So why didn't they discuss the evidence? Could it be that it's easier to attack the messenger than disprove the obvious message? I've been ashamed of Johnson and his organized mob for decades... now I'm ashamed that the History Channel would succumb to the bullying of rich and powerful old men, all of whom made millions on the back of Johnson, and on the blood of our soldiers killed in Vietnam. Kudos to McClellan for not being intimidated by this old-generation of corrupt Texas politicians.

Stone is hardly the last word on the assassination. Recent revelations ie: confessions, taped, from E. Howard Hunt who ran the entire event and recorded his testimony prior to death had Johnson in a central position in the murder. McClellan made these claims way before Hunt put his story out, so Hunt corroborates McClellan here.

Check out the book MAFIA KINGFISH for more on Johnson, Clark, re connections to the Louisiana mafia. Johnson probably knew about the assassination plans, may not have been the perp. KINGISH is extremely compelling, seems well researched. There seemed to be no loose ends in the book, and a cogent picture emerged (for me).
