I thought it might be worth starting a thread on Richard Popkin, one of the first people to strongly challenge the finding of the Warren Commission that Lee Harvey Oswald had acted alone in killing JFK.

Popkin taught philosophy at the University of California and in 1960 published The History of Scepticism from Erasmus to Descartes.

On 28th July, 1966, he reviewed two books on the Warren Commission by Harold Weisberg (Whitewash) and Edward Jay Epstein (Inquest) in The New York Review of Books. Later that year he published The Second Oswald. In the book, Popkin argued that someone might have been impersonating Lee Harvey Oswald in the weeks before the assassination.
