Accessories After the Fact Paperback – April 7, 1992

Anyway, after all the backlash following the Clay Shaw acquittal it was still a tough sell, and the typical Congressman would give you no more than 5-10 minutes time to make your case, so we needed a one or two page list of powerful bullet points demonstrating that Oswald could not have acted alone, if he acted at all, and showing that the Warren investigation was compromised by the FBI and the CIA. These were serious allegations, so each
point had to be backed up by solid proof.
At the time, there were 5-6 serious books damning the Warren Commision Report: Inquest, by Edward J Epstein; Rush to Judgment by Mark Lane; Six Seconds in Dallas by Josiah Thompson; Whitewash by Harold Weisberg; and They've Killed the President by Robert Sam Anson.
In creating that fact sheet, no book was more carefully documented than Accessories after the Fact, and no book was more comprehensive and meticulous.
When we had to source each bullet point Meagher's book did the best job in directing us to the proof.
I left the Hill in 76--before the HSCA was created, and it has always bitter disappointment to me how its own work appears to ha ve been sabotaged, not unlike what happend to Garrison.
In the years since I have retained a keen interest in this topic, and at last count have read over 40 books.Read more ›
Three cheers to the author, as this is NOT meager research, by any means!
Other facts about the frontal shot, Oswald as a poor marksman as compared to the Master Marksmen, who were hired to duplicate the "alleged" rear shots and couldn't, make this book and the other facts therein, unforgettable, irrestible!
She has done a masterful work with sufficient detail that even skeptics of the assassination would be put to shame.
I would recommend this book to all citizens of the USA as what took place in Dealey Plaza that day was conspiratorial before and, as Ms Meagher points out, conspiratorial afters, hence the name of her book, "Accessories After the Fact"!
Once read, everyone should have that righteous indignation that what took place on November 22, 1963, and the cover up by the Warren Commission, was not just a travesty of justice, it was treason, in all its hideous forms. It also pricks the conscience as to what followed in 1968, i.e., the assassinations of Dr. Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy! Perhaps the next great question is "what is the probability that all 3 notables were murdered within 3 years of each other"?
A keeper for posterity!
There are zero pictures in the book, and it was written at the time of the Garrison investigation, although it is distinctly not related - in fact, Meagher points out that some of the negative press in regards to the Garrison case has her doubting the merits of the investigation.
Ken Rahn has an online critique of Sylvia Meagher, most of which is a bunch of bunk to me - Rahn bangs on about her being a leftist (so to him, conspiracy theory or sole assassin believers are split on political grounds ???), and how because she has an interest in UFOs, she is clearly some kind of kook. He also picks out a small handful of points that he claims have been debunked in the many years since her book was published, and claims she ignored evidence that conflicted (presumably, Posner/Bugliosi would never do that) and wasn't a true investigator. Yet, I watched Rahn's presentation at the 40th JFK Symposium on the excellent DVD "Into Evidence", and I thought he got absolutely chopped up when he tried to defend the lone assassin theory, and was ducking for cover during the Q & A session !
This is the same guy who believes Ruby acted on impulse - quote - because he left his dog, Sheba, in the car when he went and shot Oswald, and then he banged on about the merits of NAA......Read more ›
