The books is researched and documented in a Herculean manner but the premise is still that bureaucracy was used to kill JFK and then cover it up. Like the Vogons of Hitchhikers Guide to the Universe, bureaucrats and their petty ambitions and fears rule the planet and our history, is the conclusion of this effort. Some of it is obviously true but there is something missing still.
a. Godfather Carlos Marcello of Louisiana joined forces with Santos Trafficante of Tampa mob rule and Johnny Rossellli a Chicago mob don to plan the murders of JFK and were also involved in the murders of RFK and Martin Luther King Jr.
b. A mob hit was planned on JFK in both Chicago and Tampa in November 1963 before the successful hit in Dallas on November 22, 1963.
c. The single bullet theory is wrong. Kennedy was killed by hired killers who were connected to the Marcello crime family. They may have come from as far afield as France
d. The Cia was affiliated with the Mob in Anti-Castro plots. Richard Helms the CIA director and Howard Hunt were involved in covert planning and the training of anti-Castro forces for the invasion of the Bay of Pigs.
e. The authors assert that AMWORLD was the plan to invade Cuba on December 1, 1963 to overthrow Castro and place General Almeida in control of a U.S. friendly democratic regime.
f. Arch segregationist Joseph Milteer and wealthy far right fringe men paid the Marcello to hire James Earl Ray to hit RFK.
g. Sirhan was employed by the Marcello mob and was in debt up to his ears in racetrack losses. Others may have been involved in
the RFK murder in Los Angeles.
h. Jimmy Hoffa was involved in the effort to destroy the Kennedys. Hoffa bribed Richard Nixon.
I. Many of the persons involved in the POTUS Kennedy assassination were also involved in Watergate. They did not want word of the covert governmental actions against Castro to leak out to the public.
Anyone claiming to be knowledgeable about the Kennedy assassination must view the work of Lamar Waldron as an essential read. This book is tough going at times but is vital. Highly recommended to patient readers who want to learn about some of the major assassinations of our time which still impact the present.
