Pop immortality comes at a price, and the price for J. I get a kick out of his personality on the page, a renewed lift from the tart humor, clipped cadences, grace notes, the surgical articulation of even his most extemp exchanges. He was withering about the hypocrisy and hard-heartedness of his predecessor, the president whom Gore Vidal called the Great Golfer. Nothing will make J.

For those fretful of becoming word-weary from all this Kennedy bio-mania, let your eyes roost on the photo albums devoted to those fraught glory days. Action shots and fly-on-the-wall snaps convey J. Photos reanimate him. And so I happily sink into The Kennedy Years, a photographic memoir by the previously mentioned Jacques Lowe, who was hired to document the Kennedys in action in , when he was just The degree of intimate access was unprecedented, as witness the shot of Bobby Kennedy giving L. The alien horizon of American lonesomeness that Robert Frank captured with his Leica in The Americans seems to stretch out behind them, and a later shot of Jack and Jackie, seated at a diner table, their faces striped by the light of venetian blinds, evokes the Frank of truck stops in the back end of nowhere, where the brand logos of rusted gas signs and soda ads reveal more personality than the local, wary faces.
The campaign tempo picks up, the crowds come alive, and the photos on the page become the movie in our head that we know is going to end horrifically. The scary thing lurking behind all of these assassination-haunted books is the awareness that we have immensely more gun nuts running around today than we did in , and they are toting a lot more firepower.

TV rewinds Kennedy assassination, 50 years later
The news came on over the radio. We were all stunned beyond belief, those of us in that building, and the tears began to flow. The moans and the screams. What are we going to do? And that was it. Tears and sobs and wondering why and wondering what was going to happen next. And that was just like rubbing salt into a wound. It is very painful to think about it even now.

The files released after Congress passed the JFK Act unanimously in show the massive amount of information that had been withheld from at least five Congressional investigations. And, a report by the government oversight group OMB Watch says that "well over one million CIA records" related to JFK's era remain unreleased, perhaps until the mandatory release date of It appeared in print for the first time just three months ago.
Using declassified files from the National Archives, we found that in the days, weeks, and months before Dallas, Robert Kennedy had a secret government committee looking at how the US could deal with the "assassination of American officials" if Castro found out about the Kennedys' coup plan, and tried to retaliate.
This is a troubling enigma for it suggests that he intended to maintain his covert identity — a fact that would compromise his involvement in the HSCA and jeopardize the entire congressional investigation. According to close associate Tom Clines, if you saw Morales walking down the street in a Latin American capital, you knew a coup was about to happen. When the subject of the Kennedys came up in a late-night session with friends in , Morales launched into a tirade that finished: "I was in Dallas when we got the son of a bitch and I was in Los Angeles when we got the little bastard.
Fifteen minutes in, there he was, standing at the back of the ballroom, in the moments between the end of Kennedy's speech and the shooting.

Thirty minutes later, there he was again, casually floating around the darkened ballroom while an associate with a pencil moustache took notes. I tracked Ayers down to a small town in Wisconsin and emailed him stills of Morales and another guy I found suspicious - a man who is pictured entering the ballroom from the direction of the pantry moments after the shooting, clutching a small container to his body, and being waved towards an exit by a Latin associate.
Ayers' response was instant. The Mafia chiefs -- banned by the Kennedys from the coup plan, and from reopening their casinos in Cuba -- infiltrated the CIA's portion of the coup plan, and used parts of it to kill JFK in Dallas. Edgar Hoover -- into a cover-up to protect Almeida and prevent a possible nuclear confrontation with the Soviets, a cover-up which continued for decades.
Embassy in Mexico City, Scott used the LITEMPO project to provide "an unofficial channel for the exchange of selected sensitive political information which each government wanted the other to receive but not through public protocol exchanges. It's a jaw-dropping deposition and it's the biggest JFK smoking gun there is - despite the fact that it has received little media attention.
Before her death on June 22 , prolific author and lecturer Robert Gaylon Ross had the opportunity to conduct an 80 minute sit-down interview with Madeleine Duncan Brown and from that lengthy discussion the truth about exactly who was behind the assassination of JFK was exposed. The two men worked closely together. When embarrassing documents were published that proved Helms had deliberately misinformed the Warren Commission, Bolten Sr. Later documents proved that Helms was lying, and this scandal threatened to open one of the most malignant enigmas ever doomed to stalk the shadows of American history: the assassination of JFK, Lee Harvey Oswald and the CIA.
This was a problem that Bush Sr. Bush Sr. In doing so, Bolten Sr. Helms had other legal problems involving lying under oath to a Senate Committee investigating the CIA. For these crimes, Helms would eventually receive the censure of Congress. I don't think it merits a detailed review, but we should be clear about the stand that "America's leading intellectual dissident," as he is often called, has taken on the assassination.
It is not significantly different from that of the Warren Commission or the majority of Establishment journalists and government apologists, and diametrically opposed to the view "widely held in the grassroots movements and among left intellectuals" p. For Chomsky, the only theories of the assassination "of any general interest are those that assume a massive cover-up, and a high-level conspiracy that required that operation. An achievement so immense would be utterly without precedent or even remote analogue. Kennedy in particular that makes the Bushes jumpy.
The name "George Bush" appears much too frequently in documents, some newly released, relating to the assassination of President Kennedy. Since there is no statute of limitations on murder or accessory to murder, I can understand why Bush pere and fils may want to erase November 22, from the history books. The document trail linking George H. Bush to those involved in the assassination of President Kennedy is nothing less than chilling. Many witnesses at the time complained of pressure by the LAPD to change their testimony.
They were confident that any such exposure could push America to the brink of war with Cuba and the Soviet Union, meaning that they could assassinate JFK with relative impunity. Oswald had his office for the deceptively titled Fair Play with Cuba organization in the same building at the same time.
A diversion from the increasing revelations about the games that the CIA was playing with Oswald files just before the assassination. And a diversion from the growing consensus that previously-suppressed facts about Kennedy's policies on Cuba and the Cold War, which placed him at odds with powerful hard-liners in his own country, may indeed lie at the heart of the mystery about his murder. It is also implausible that the Mafia, itching to get rid of Castro and restore Cuba's once lucrative gambling industry, would have blocked a plot that would have done just that.
Thomas presented a stark contrast to Garwin. Thomas began by asserting that the number on the tape Garwin tested was not the number of the tape the House assassination committee tested. Thomas provided slides that made clear the points he was making. One could feel the change in the room.
