You've got to be kidding ?,
This review is from: Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot (Hardcover)
I loved the book "Killing Lincoln". O'Reilly (& Dugard) have created a huge disappointment this time around.
"Killing Kennedy" is almost as lame as Mark Fuhrman's "A Simple Act of Murder.
Oswald never fired a shot. Most of the American people who have studied this story for almost fifty years concur. This murder was a conspiracy, with some of the conspirators at the highest levels of government. Even the United States House of Representatives Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) finds that the Kennedy assassination was likely the result of at least two gunmen (a conspiracy).
O'Reilly's book places most of the dots on the table (and their backgrounds) and then fails to connect them, as though this has never been researched and completely ignoring *all* of the Clay Shaw prosecution, and *all* of the HSCA proceedings.
The conclusion of this appendage to history is just a lame hanging-on to the bogus Warren Commission findings and almost fifty years of government lying.
Those of us who remember, who will never forget, who have stood for hours at the Kennedy grave-site, who will demand forever an appropriate explanation are well aware that the Kennedy assassination was nothing other than a Coup d'Etat in America, with Lyndon B. Johnson waiting breathlessly in the wings. Stop lying to the American people.
The book "Killing Kennedy" by O'Reilly and Dugard is a disappointing fabrication that adds insult to injury. If you want a blow-by-blow of Kennedy's sex life, an all-but-accusation attempting to pin the murder (I mean suicide) of Marilyn Monroe on Bobby Kennedy, or exposing the sex life of Martin Luther King Jr... (that is really low...) well, the book might be for you. If you want the truth regarding the killing of Kennedy, well, you'll be disappointed.
The only reason I even give the book two stars is that the bay-of-pigs fiasco is mostly accurate and detailed politically. Also Vietnam's Diem is portrayed accurately and politically relevant to Kennedy -- although not quite connecting the dots back to Texas, and Bell Helicopter. (never mind).
If you liked the Warren Report, you'll love this book.

Right. The long reviews tend to be symbolic as do the short ones.
