Warning! There is a hidden chapter you need to read in order to fully understand this book
on February 21, 2016
Warning: many readers will incorrectly think they finished John Newman's book upon finishing chapter 20 entitled, ¨Conclusion: Beginning¨. That's because chapter 20 is followed by nearly 100 pages of Documents, followed in turn by nearly 100 pages of notes. But after THAT, unexpectedly, there appears an ESSENTIAL newly added chapter entitled, ¨Epilogue, 2008¨ which you MUST read or else you will miss the author's best guess (and his reasoning) as to who in the CIA was pulling Oswald's strings.
After you read this hidden chapter, you will practically fall off your chair when you get to chapter 5 of David Talbot's book, ¨The Devil's Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America's Secret Government¨. There, on page 96, you will find extensive reference to this same person in 1945 when he worked for U.S. intelligence in Italy assisting Dulles in protecting German war criminals!!!
Incidentally, I found after reading John Newman's book that it was especially interesting to see John Newman on YouTube. For example,the YouTube channel entitled, ¨Assassination Archives and Research Center¨ has a video of a speech labeled as, ¨Dr. John M. Newman - Dark Operations - Deciphering the CIA’s Cuban Secrets HD¨.
Jon Newman's book was the first I ever read on the subject of the JFK assassination. I was advised to start with this book by a user review of James Douglass' book, ¨JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters¨. After I finish David Talbot's book, I will start James Douglass' book. I think this is the best reading order for someone who, like myself, is new to the subject of the JFK assassination.
