April 3, 2013 - A Review by Jonathan Mark -

A story has arisen fifty years later on the transformation of US President John F. Kennedy. He came on the scene as a cold warrior and grew into a supporter for world peace and disarmament. Yet everything changed on November 22nd, 1963. The public watched a seemingly endless caravan of death, never really quite understanding the betrayal of that moment, distracted by television, and fear infiltrating our minds. I was 12 then; George Orwell's 1984 was required reading in school. I believed it was all about the USSR, a totalitarian state. Gradually, to my amazement, I realized that statements like 'war is peace, justice is slavery, and ignorance is strength' was happening here in the so-called 'homeland.' Remarkably two thirds of the US population still have enough critical thinking to agree with me that there was a conspiracy and cover-up on JFK's assassination.

The US government decided to withhold details on their investigation from the public until 2017. But, it could then be delayed further by an order from the President. So, like a breath of fresh air, Peter Janney's book unfolds a story that reads like a crime mystery, but reveals an insightful personal connection, inspired by Mary Pinchot Meyer and her relationship with President Kennedy. Peter Janney's human touch gives life to this story and their vision for world peace.

Dick Russell, who wrote the forward to Janney's book, and who authored "The Man Who Knew Too Much and On the Trail of the JFK Assassins," stated "Mary's Mosaic is a story about intertwined destinies, about human strength and weakness, and finally about forces of good and evil. The book makes a reader consider those possibilities within each of us, even as what unfolds is on a Shakespearean stage." I couldn't have said that better.

Oliver Stone, ("JFK"), remarked that Mary's Mosaic is "A fascinating story... Peter Janney's unsparing analysis moves us closer to a reckoning." Perhaps this 50th anniversary enough of 2/3 of the US population will do something. Flyby News' recent film compilation, JFK and 9-11, not only shows evidence of CIA fingerprints all over the assassination, but its connection to the Federal Reserve and military industrial complex. It ends on a high note with a proposal to amend the US Constitution by a direct democracy initiative. Reading Peter Janney's book this year will help you become more aware of our history, and hopefully, yes, closer to a reckoning.
