5.0 out of 5 stars AN ENGAGING, TRAGIC BUT FINALLY HOPEFUL ENCOUNTER WITH OUR HISTORY, May 22, 2008
This review is from: JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters (Hardcover)
Along with over ten years of meticulous research and one hundred pages of footnotes (worth reading), this book has soul. For those tempted to despair that our national leaders are not capable of turning our nation toward peace, this book tells us how it has already happened. John F. Kennedy was taking stands for peace that risked his life as well as his presidency and it seems that the nation hardly noticed. For those who are willing to engage in hard-headed thinking and research, this book will belie the ho-hum assumption that we will never know why Kennedy was killed nor who is responsible. We can know and we need to know as citizens. If you can read only one book on the life of JFK, this is it.

Hi, Randall! Good to see you "on board." We're going to see Jim next week in Seattle. Read the book right away and would love to talk with you about it, as well as other things. Hope all is well with you and Sharon.

Wow. I never watched any JFK stuff on youtube before. It wasn't just well worth watching. It went beyond that. It was actually pretty damning evidence.

Thank you Mr Barksdale for an insight that I would have expected from G. Gordon Liddy or one of his - dare I say it - co-conspirators. Do you have something to show the CIA is other than "a bunch of hawkish, anti-communist thugs?" I mean, other than them being an incompetent bunch. That's their job, isn't it? We have other people who are supposed to play nice. The CIA is in the business of bringing down governments and people we (or they) don't like - right? They spy, don't they? Then their job was to keep the communists away. Now it's keep the "Islamic radicals" away, no? I know - itching powder or fleas in Castro's beard was an anomaly - but kids will be kids and no real harm was done. The Bay of Pigs - now that was different - real people got hurt.

Does your caricature include the CIA and the Mossad cooperating as evangelists in spreading love and truth through the world?

You're exactly right. There is nothing of interest here and there is no debate. There is one dope engaged in mental masturbation. I'll leave so you can enjoy yapping to yourself.
