Retired history professor writing third book:

".....Breach of Trust: How the Warren Commission Failed the Nation and Why" was published in 2005 and details many

of the inner workings of the commission in an attempt to show its findings were based on a preordained conclusion reached

by top officials almost immediately after the assassination.

He is working on a new book about the Kennedy assassination he said will highlight evidence drawn from recently obtained documents.

He said its scope will be more expansive than "Breach of Trust," dealing with many aspects of the case, including what he said is

documented proof that the government used threats of deportation to get Marina Oswald to cooperate with its investigation, as well as

evidence Oswald's defection to the Soviet Union may have been part of an Office of Naval Intelligence program to insert sleeper agents.

While McKnight hopes his work will make a difference in informing the nation's understanding of the assassination, he thinks the upcoming

50th anniversary of the event is likely to spark a massive media campaign in support of the official story.

"I think there is a movement on to close off this issue once and for all," McKnight said, "... to say that publishers and newspapers should

treat this business of an alternative explanation for Dallas as some sort of mental disease that undermines the republic itself."
