He tells his story and reprints all the relevant documents, memos and files so you can see them for yourself and make your own decisions. No matter what your view on the assassination, you can see how some facts and dates change in various FBI documents. Conspiracy? Lazy FBI clerks? Innocent mistakes? Whatever you think, you can not deny that things are very askew.
And as for the author's text: I was lucky to hear an extended taped radio interview of the author before I bought the book. When you have just the printed page, you can't tell how much has even been written by the author, how much things have been edited and tweaked by others. On a live radio interview, you get a much better idea of who the author really is. This is a smart man, no one's fool, very sincere. He's no "conspiracy nut" with an agenda. I believe what he says.
This book also helped me assess the book "Case Closed" by Posner. All Posner says about Milteer , and that is in an appendix, is that he "told a a police informer in November 1963 that Kennedy would be killed when he came to Miami." Milteer said much, much more than that!!!! In Adams' book you can read the transcript of that actual conversation. Milteer said on tape that Kennedy would be shot with a rifle from an office building and that a patsy would be arrested just hours later and framed for it. You can hear this taped interview on line too. It is an uncanny prediction of what would happen, esp. the part of the patsy being arrested just a few hours later. Remember, this conversation was recorded, transcribed and reported just a few weeks before the assassination. Posner lost a lot of credibility to me when I saw what Posner had left out.
Adams presents at least 20 documents to the reader. At one point, he actually went to Washington and visited the National Archives. There he retrieved many of original documents which which he had worked in the week of the JFK assassination. Some were real, some were partly faked on the part of the FBI or Secret Service.
In his book The Man Who Knew Too Much, author Dick Russell told the story of Richard Case Nagell who had advance knowledge of the JFK assassination. Now, author Don Adams has performed the same service to JFK buffs with regard to Joseph MIlteer who was another of these people with proven foreknowledge of the assassination. But Adams also tells his opinion about his top ten JFK assassination books and some of his beliefs and theories based on his real time experience in the last week of November, 1963.
If you read this book, you can quickly get a picture of the real Joseph Milteer and find out the truth about whether or not MIlteer was really in Dallas on November 22, 1963.
