Here are some good JFK assassination books to read

Recommended Posts

The Dark Side of Camelot - very important book. JFK was an out of control sex freak and it is one BIG reason he got murdered. Lyndon Johnson with Hoover's help was able to blackmail his way onto the 1960 Demo ticket because of this stuff. That is like going camping with Jeffrey Dahmer.

Robert:

The Dark Side of Camelot is trash. PLEASE read Jim D's fine piece on all the disinfo about JFK's sex life.

JFK's SEX LIFE had zero to do with his murder. I realize you're still a newbie on all this and eager to learn, so please do some further study before making such absurd pronouncements.

Merci,

Dawn

first post, be gentle, what about Hosty: Assignment Oswald? I read one evaluation here that he was an honest flatfoot. i agree with that. i didnt think he was lying. the conspiracy had to be as small as possible. the fbi hung him out to dry. he knows there was a coverup, he just buys the mexico cia kgb angle. he recognizes the warren commission as a joke. calls dulles a senile old fool. ends up hating hoover, how can you not like this guy? i enjoyed the inside look at the information stratification of the fbi. its a pretty tense entertaining book.

second, a question, is there a book, the collected writings of oswald? trying to piece together whether he was a fake defector or not, it would be interesting to see what he was writing and compare it to the swp bulletins of the day, to see if he is parroting or seems to know what he is saying. for instance joseph hansen was editor of the militant and was writing quite a bit about cuba in 60-62 and that is online. i read oswalds radio transcript, and he seems to be pretty coherent, not on script.

Dawn:

Where is Jim D's piece on JFK's sex life? I do believe it played a factor, though perhaps a small piece of the puszzle. I also believe there is value in Sy Hershes's and Barr McClennen's books. There are parts in each that I find significant. I also believe there is evidence to support that LBJ likely knew of the assassination plans and was a major figure in orchestratinng the cover-up. Hopefully, my book will be out in the next year and I am aware of another book being written by a very reputable researcher on LBJ. Again, whether we agree on everything or not, I have the highesr respect for Jim D. and I would like to read his article on JFK's sex life.

Thank you,

Doug Weldon

An excerpt from my review of Horne Vol 4 and 5:

"Why Horne would source Barr McClellan’s book Blood, Money and Power is a complete puzzle to me. Seamus Coogan was criticized by George Bailey who runs the “Oswald’s Mother” site about his reference to the McClellan book as the worst in the last 15 years. Bailey said that no, Case Closed was the worst. Since the Posner book was published more than 15 years ago, Bailey was off base. Perhaps Reclaiming History could then qualify. But then, how many people have read that whole book? The McClellan book did get some publicity. This is unfortunate since it really is a very bad book. (One must differentiate between the book and the annex by the late Nathan Darby on the fingerprint evidence.)

One of the problems with it is that there is very little annotation to all of the most sensational charges. For instance, the author states that LBJ went into psychotherapy toward the end of his life and confessed to his doctor that he was behind the murder of President Kennedy. (McClellan, p. 3) What is his source for this? Not the doctor himself, nor any written report. It’s a conversation he said he had with a partner in Johnson’s law firm, Don Thomas. The obvious questions are twofold 1.) Why would the partner reveal this to McClellan? And 2.) Why would LBJ tell the partner? If you can believe it, the author says that Johnson wanted to somehow elevate his reputation out of the Vietnam gutter, and this is why he claimed credit for Kennedy’s murder. (ibid, pgs. 283-84)

The entire text of the book is like this. One gets these sensational disclosures, and then one searches in vain for the backing in the End Notes. We are to believe that LBJ learned about the art of assassination from the attempt on FDR. (ibid p. 39) Thomas told McClellan that he was involved in the famous stealing of the 1948 senatorial election by LBJ from Coke Stevenson. Then you go to the sourcing. This is what it says: “The information came in many ways. Over drinks after work, during the firm parties, at early Saturday morning coffee, and just the daily office talk.” (ibid ,p. 350) Sorry, not good enough.

McClellan later says that his boss, attorney Ed Clark, brokered a deal with Joe Kennedy to put LBJ on the 1960 ticket. When one looks for the sourcing on this, you will find: “The deal was advertised to clients on several occasions…” (ibid, p. 356)

But this is nothing compared to how McClellan deals with the actual facts of the assassination. He says that Clark started the plot going in 1962 by looking for a second sniper—the first of course being Mac Wallace. And he called Leon Jaworksi for help. When one goes to the footnote for this, you will find: “”Despite several solid leads and close ties to Clark, the better course for the present is to withhold judgment pending further research and strong corroborating evidence. At this time our leads are through Jaworksi and Cofield, and our key suspects fit into the Clark modus operandi. The accomplices may never be identified with certainty.” (ibid, p. 358) In other words, he has nothing to back up this assumption.

Later on McClellan writes that he doesn’t know how Wallace met Oswald, but they did meet, “and that they were together on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository when Kennedy was shot.” (ibid, p. 179) There is next to no evidence that Oswald was on the sixth floor that day. But further, the author then makes up a scenario for Wallace meeting Oswald. The problem is that it takes place at a print shop in Dallas in late 1962. Yet, Oswald did not print any flyers at that time! So how could it happen? (ibid, p. 267)

Further, in defiance of the ballistics evidence, the author has Oswald firing at Edwin Walker and killing Tippit. (ibid, pgs. 211, 267) And in further defiance of the puzzling postal records, the author says Oswald ordered the murder weapons. (ibid, p. 267)

Backing up the whole Penn Jones/Madeleine Brown scenario, McClellan goes with the Murchison murder gathering on the eve of the assassination. (ibid, p. 271) During which the infamous ads that ran in the papers were on poster on the walls. And Mr. Clark predicted that very soon LBJ would be the new president. Cheers broke out among the partygoers. So now, even more details have been added to this ever-evolving story about the gathering.

McClellan says he has found out how Clark was paid for the operation. (p. 234) To say his evidence is unconvincing is to give it too much credit. He then says that although Mac Wallace died in a car accident, he was actually killed by people associated with Clark. (p. 242) This is his evidence: “The medical report shows extensive physical injuries that are not consistent with the damages to the auto.” (ibid, p. 362) This is weird because McClellan says that Wallace was in a weakened state by attempted carbon monoxide poisoning, and this is what caused the accident. How could that attempted poisoning cause “extensive physical injuries”.

Maybe someday someone will write a convincing and scholarly book on Johnson’s involvement in the JFK murder. But these two fall far short of that mark. And Horne should not have used them, since by doing so he implicitly recommends them. They are not worth recommending. Not by a longshot. In fact, once analyzed, they are the kinds of books that can be used to caricature researchers."

Here is a link to the whole review: http://www.ctka.net/reviews/horn_jd_pt4-5.html

Jim:

Thank you so much. I will read the article. As always, you provide very cogent criticisms and observations. I believe there is some value in the book and not everything should be dismissed. I will make some observations on LBJ in my book based on the evidence and some direct conversations with some people close to the White House at that time and there is a book on LBJ being written by a very competent and respected researcher.

Best,

Doug Weldon

Besides Mae Brussell's "Last Word of LHO," I don't know of any collection of Oswald's complete works, excpet what's in the 26 volumes, though its scattered about. Someone ought to take Mae's concept and take it backwards and add what else he wrote and said, as there is quite a bit.

I'd also like a link to whatever Joe Hansen wrote in the Militant, and I'd like to read the stories published in the Militant issues that Oswald subscribed to that deal with Castro and Cuba.

Thanks Terry,

BK

hansen link, marxists.org has been putting up lots of old original stuff

http://www.marxists....ansen/index.htm

http://www.marxists....spape/index.htm

i dont see any links to "the militant" like he might have actually been holding in the photo, but the hansen link above has 4 articles on cuba in early 60s

Thanks, that's very valuable.

They don't go back to the Sixties in the on line archive, but they do have a few items of interest.

http://www.themilita...310/731053.html

And there's some links to articles by people we've come to know, such as Corlis Lamont

http://www.marxists....8/xx/lamont.htm

How about Albert Schweitzer?

http://www.marxists..../schweitzer.htm

A.J. Muste was one of the founders of the Committee for Non-Violent Action (CNVA)

who sponsored the San Fran to Moscow Walk that went through Minsk when Os was there,

and the Quebec to Guantamano Walk that included three Oswald sightings.

http://www.marxists....muste/index.htm

Then there's our old friend Harold Isaacs, who we first learned of from the misfiling of his name

with Oswald's cousin Marilyn Murret, when he was in the Far East before he went to MIT

http://www.marxists....saacs/index.htm

Then there's Hansen's articles on Cuba that Oswald could have read

http://www.marxists..../hansenvhoy.htm

http://www.marxists....11/acidtest.htm

And most surprising of all - they actually covered a COPA event -

the COPA event in NYC for Malcolm X that John Judge organized.

It seems like the SWP still doesn't like JFK.

Vol. 73/No. 10 March 16, 2009

N.Y. meeting discusses

legacy of Malcolm X

BY OLGA RODRÍGUEZ

NEW YORKThe revolutionary legacy of Malcolm X was celebrated at a forum here on the 44th anniversary of his assassination. The event was held at the Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz Memorial and Educational Center. The meeting was cosponsored by the Coalition on Political Assassinations (COPA) and by the center, which is located at the site of the Audubon Ballroom in Harlem where Malcolm X was fatally shot at the podium on Feb. 21, 1965.

Malaak Shabazz, Malcolm's and Betty Shabazz's youngest daughter, welcomed some 120 participants and thanked the speakers. The meeting was chaired by Dowoti Désir, the center's executive director.

The first panelist was William Pepper, author of two books on what he believes to have been a U.S. government conspiracy in 1968 to assassinate Martin Luther King. The government did so, Pepper said, because King in his later years had "started down the same path as Malcolm X."

Pepper, who served as an attorney to James Earl Raythe man convicted of King's assassinationsaid he was also convinced that President John F. Kennedy had been assassinated in 1963 by conspirators at the service of "the Eastern Establishment" in the United States.

Wynne Alexander, station historian for Philadelphia's WDAS radio, spoke about Malcolm X's interview by the station on Dec. 29, 1964. Despite a death threat, and the station being surrounded by 100 local cops, including sharpshooters, Malcolm went on the air to explain his perspective for building the Organization of Afro-American Unity (OAAU).

James Small, an OAAU leader and retired Black Studies professor at the City University of New York, spoke to the challenges facing African Americans since Malcolm's death. "Would Malcolm be happy with the situation of African Americans if he were alive today?" Small asked, answering "No." Since 1965, he said, 10,000 Blacks "have been elected to public office whose presence has meant no difference for the African-American community." He pointed to high jobless rates and the devastating impact of today's capitalist crisis.

Small spoke about the U.S., French, and British governments' hatred of Malcolm. Malcolm knew he would be killed, Small said, and that the plot was "bigger than the Nation of Islam."

Also speaking was Steve Clark, editor of several collections of speeches by Malcolm X published by Pathfinder Press and a member of the Socialist Workers Party National Committee. Clark encouraged those at the meeting to read and study Malcolm's speeches and interviews from the last 10 months of his lifekept in print primarily by Pathfinder Pressin order to emulate "the political legacy and course of conduct of one of the 20th century's most outstanding revolutionary leaders of working people and of the struggle for Black freedom."

During those 10 months, Clark said, Malcolm sought to unify the broadest possible movement against anti-Black racism and oppression, women's inequality, capitalist exploitation, and imperialist wars. Whatever one's religious beliefs or lack of them, Malcolm said, it was necessary to leave religion at home in the closet in order to build a united movement.

Addressing the assassination, Clark pointed to the ways the U.S. rulers and their political police carry out spying and harassment, as well as murderous violence when they need to, against those actively engaged in fighting government policies.

The U.S. rulers wanted to get rid of Malcolm X, Clark said. But it was individuals in or around the Nation of Islam who shot him. Clark added that in Grenada a Stalinist clique within the governing New Jewel Movement murdered Maurice Bishop, the central leader of the 1979-83 revolution, and, as Cuban president Fidel Castro explained, "handed the island to U.S. imperialism on a silver platter."

"Malcolm X hated these methods," Clark said. Malcolm detested demagogy and thuggery by those claiming to fight for liberation. These are methods of the exploiters, picked up and introduced by the Stalinist movement into organizations of working people and the oppressed in the 1930s.

Clark pointed to the disorienting result of focusing our attention on alleged plots and conspiracies. It takes our eyes off the real source of society's illsthe capitalist systemand the need to build a revolutionary movement of working people to take power from the capitalist rulers.

Conspiracy tales, Clark said, often lead to scapegoating, like the anti-Semitic libel floated around 9/11, repeated to this day, that Jews working at the Twin Towers were told to stay home that day. "It's all grist for the mill of the ultraright," Clark noted.

Imam Talib Abdur-Rashid, a trustee of the Shabazz Center and Islamic religious leader in New York, said Malcolm X was "not just a great leader who was a Muslim, but a great Muslim leader." We should recall, Talib added, that Malcolm first established a religious organization, and only after that a political one.

The final speaker, COPA director John Judge, said it's important to study assassination conspiracies, because if we "don't know history, we can't know the present and future." People sometimes call him "a conspiracy theorist," he said, "which is OK if they call themselves 'coincidence theorists.'"

Judge said he knows "the power of the state," but within the state there are factions and "competing conspiracies." Powerful forces conspired to assassinate President Kennedy, his brother Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King, and Malcolm X because of what they represented politically.

During the discussion, Clark said he thought Lee Harvey Oswald alone organized the Kennedy assassination. But his main concern, Clark said, was any implication that there was something politically in common to Kennedy, King, and Malcolm X that would make them targets of assassination plots by forces in the U.S. government. That obfuscates for working people the class realities of who our oppressors and exploiters are.

Clark pointed out that Kennedy had not lifted a finger to defend Black rights fighters protesting Jim Crow segregation, sponsored an abortive invasion aimed at crushing the Cuban Revolution, and increased the number of U.S. troops in Vietnam by more than 3,000 percent in the three years he held office. It was under his administration that the FBI conducted extensive spying on Martin Luther King. It's an outrage, Clark said, to speak of John F. Kennedy "in the same breath as Martin Luther King, much less a revolutionary leader such as Malcolm X."

While I think the links to the Militant articles and the other subjects discussed are important, I'd like to bring the subject back around to JFK assassination books.

Although not exactly on subject, I think in order to understand what happened at Dealey Plaza you have to read certain books just to get an idea of what you are getting into.

Of course the Warren Report comes first, and it can be suplimented by any number of similar books that are better written and easier to read, like Manchester's Death of a President, or even Posner's Case Closed.

On the other side of the coin, Tony Summer's Conspiracy and Not In Your Lifetime stands with a dozen other books that pretty much tell the same story - by H. Hurt, Phil Melanson's Spy Story, GME's We Are All Mortal, Canfield & Weberman's Coup d'etat, Bob Groden's books, Jim Garrison's Heritage of Stone, et al.

More significantly however, I think there is a specific genre of books on American intelligence operations that are required reading to really understand the assassination of JFK, beginning with A. Dulles' The Craft of Intelligence, Wise and Ross' The Invisible Government, Marchetti & Marks book, Prouty's Secret Team, Turner's The Fish Is Red and Rearview Mirror, David Atlee Phillips Nightwatch, Brad Ayers' two books, Joe Smith's Portrait of a Cold Warrior, Paul Linebarger's Psychological Warfare and the text he used in his classes, The Big Con, which details how con jobs and covert operations are pulled off, ala The Sting.

Of course none of these books would have any connection to the assassination of President Kennedy if he was indeed killed by a demented lone nut case.

The Historiographic Record of Conspiracy for a Tragedy in Dallas

by John G. Kays

November 14, 2010

Excerpt:

"So here`s my humble offering of ten masterpieces of JFK conspiracy literature. I only barely scratched the surface,

but if you haven`t read some of these works, please make a point to do so. There`s a new cover-up in place today that

would prefer if you overlooked these relics."

Also, note that fabulous book by Gerald Ford is title "Portrait of THE Assassin", not Portrait of AN Assassin. Ford wanted to make very clear that the patsy Oswald was THE assassin, not just any assassin but THE assassin.

For sure. Sloppy of me. Careless too.

My favorite story regarding this book took place in 1972. There was some sort of auction and "Portrait of the Assassin" was among the items being sold. It was signed by the author with the words "best personal regards" and the word "personal" was misspelled. (Brings to mind Dan Quale ).
