In this book, DiEugenio, who has been investigating the Kennedy assassination for ten years, expands on the major points brought out in JFK , the Oliver Stone movie. Both Stone and DiEugenio agree with Jim Garrison's findings that the assassination was the result of a conspiracy, that members of the U.S. intelligence community were involved, that Kennedy was assassinated to allow U.S. foreign policy to be changed, and that the assassination amounted to a coup d'etat. While DiEugenio discusses Kennedy's rocky relationship with the CIA, he focuses on the Clay Shaw trial and the media's unfair depiction of Garrison as a crank. DiEugenio also points out that in 1975, both the Church Committee and the House Select Committee on Assassinations concluded, as had Garrison, that Lee Harvey Oswald was linked with the CIA and Cuban exiles. The book is thoroughly documented with endnotes, appendixes, and a bibliography of over 200 items. While no new revelations are offered, DiEugenio's impeccable research and clearly written analysis makes this a good choice for most libraries. Photos not seen. Other recent books on the Kennedy assassination are Mark North's Act of Treason and Mark Lane's Plausible Denial , both LJ 11/1/91.--Ed.

This is classic 2006 summary of the Garrison case holds up very well from the perspective of time. These many years later, we know so much more of the case now, including the fact (thanks to the ARRB) that Shaw was in fact a CIA asset as Garrison stated, and his role over twenty years was far from that of an occasional asset. This excellent volume gives us a summary of the major points of the Garrison case, as well as background on Permindex and the World Trade Center's role in Central American politics. The writing is clear and paced nicely.
Most people know the author from the DVD extras for the Oliver stone Movie JFK as he narrated the New Documents Multi Media Essay , or from the past 5 years or so as a regular guest on the weekly radio show for Political research with a particular interest in the assassination of JFK where he has been a regular contributor and has been taking listener questions to educucate an interested public about the facts and the efforts to learn more about the truth regarding the events of November 22 1963.
I was surprised to find that Destiny Betrayed 2012 was not simply an update of the earlier release. It was in fact a well attributed blend of the original text with hundreds of valid footnotes that is a reflection of the evolution of what is now known via the work of many researchers in recent years and the addition to public knowledge granted the citizen researcher via the work of the Assassination Records Review Board in the 90's , the ever increasing JFK Records collection , and the authors interaction with listeners and other researchers on Black Op Radio in recent years.
As a regular listener and who has asked questions on Black Op Radio I have written in about my work , books and articles I have read , and many issues I have encountered as an observer of media interest in the JFK assassination and I can tell you that much of the new material in the book has unfolded over the years on that show , and on the CTKA website which is written and edited by Jim Dieuginio.
It is as if he had been slowly authoring the new material and updating the earlier volume in public. So it is a great reflection of the authors expert knowledge of the Jim Garrison case , the updates to the national archives thanks to the ARRB , and the ever evolving literature on the assassination brought together in one volume.
The earlier edition was honestly not part of my Top Ten books on the assassination even though it was a great resource for a reader learning the Jim Garrison investigation..
The 2nd edition is however one of the top ten books on the case in my opinion. After reading at least 300 books on the assassination (at least that's what I can list) I can only say that many have repeated the same old information , many have misled the reader , many are packed with mere opinions. This book however is unique well founded and a valued addition to my personal library that I highly recommend .

So much new information that it's hard to grasp it all at once, even those that like me have read over 50 books on the case over five decades. Maybe closer to a hundred...
I can't imagine how any sane and open minded person, after reading it, could POSSIBLY conclude that we were told the truth.
And for anyone who thinks that Garrison was some kind of misguided self serving egomaniac... well... you'll see here that he was quite clearly on the right track and that Clay Shaw was absolutely, undeniably involved, up to his ears.
