Overview

Mark Lane tried the only U.S. court case in which the jurors concluded that the CIA plotted the murder of President Kennedy, but there was always a missing piece:
How did the CIA control cops and secret service agents on the ground in Dealey Plaza? How did federal authorities prevent the House Select Committee on Assassinations from discovering the truth about the complicity of the CIA?

Now, New York Times bestselling author Mark Lane tells all in this explosive new book. With exclusive new interviews, sworn testimony, and meticulous new research (including interviews with Oliver Stone,
Dallas Police deputy sheriffs, Robert K. Tanenbaum, and Abraham Bolden), Lane finds out firsthand exactly what went on the day JFK was assassinated. Lane includes sworn statements given to the Warren Commission by a police officer who confronted a man who he thought was the assassin. The officer testified that he drew his gun and pointed it at the suspect, who showed Secret Service ID. Yet the Secret Service later reported that there were no Secret Service agents on foot in Dealey Plaza.

Last Word proves that the CIA, operating through a secret small group, prepared all credentials for Secret Service agents in Dallas for the two days that Kennedy was going to be there—conclusive evidence of the CIA’s involvement in the assassination. Here is the last word on the JFK assassination by a New York Times bestselling author and JFK historian!

Editorial Reviews

Hartford Examiner
“Created quite a bit of buzz among readers.”
Publishers Weekly
In his third book on the Kennedy assassination (Plausible Denial), attorney Lane builds a circumstantial case for CIA involvement—though in an appendix he says he does not identify “those who assassinated” Kennedy because he has been “unable to secure sufficient factual information.” Lane breaks down the assassination into all of its moving parts and examines the actions of Secret Service agents who many agree botched protocol. Lane says the Warren Commission report on the assassination was awash with faulty logic, twisting forensic evidence to fit its preconception that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone shooter. Lane’s contention about the CIA’s role rests on reports that the agency feared Kennedy might disband it after the Bay of Pigs; there was also anger at the president’s attempts to interact peacefully with Castro. The CIA, Lane says, made Oswald the fall guy and provided men found on the “grassy knoll”—where many believe the deadly shots were fired—with Secret Service credentials. Lane has been vilified by the CIA and also has his supporters, but this book is hardly the “last word.” (Nov.)

    Last Word by Mark Lane - review by Dale Thorn

    When I first stumbled across this book a couple of weeks ago and having read some of the reviews, I was thinking of Mark Lane as Satchel Paige - in his advanced years and unable to throw a complete game, he would pitch maybe three good innings and retire to the dugout while his reliever finished the job. Highlights of the old days and little new information. If that's what you were expecting here based on some of those reviews, then set that notion aside and get ready for a reading adventure. It gets even better as the story progresses. Lane opens with a remembrance to the 50 thousand-plus Americans who died in the Vietnam War, as well as the million or so Vietnamese who died in that conflict. I would like to open this review by stating what I've said elsewhere, that the debunkers who advocate the so-called official conclusions of the Warren Commission et al and deny government responsibility for John Kennedy's murder are actually far worse deniers than it would seem from the nitpicking and hair-splitting they do in arguing that Oswald did it. A simple reality check should help dispel the notion that the government "just wouldn't" bump off the chief executive like we saw in Dallas. The U.S. government and its large contractors like GE and Westinghouse have manufactured tens of thousands of doomsday thermonuclear bombs, sufficient to exterminate the entire human race many times over, and have pointed those devices of Ultimate Death at the heads of every human being on Earth, ostensibly to frighten all of us into submission should we have any notion to attack or threaten that government. One could argue that the above scenario applies only to nation-states and not individuals, however, an in-depth reading of the terror acts and principles makes it clear that those kinds of lines don't exist now, if they ever did. Robert Tanenbaum introduces the book with notes about how Mark Lane and other critics of the Warren Report were smeared by the lapdog national press, owned in no small part by the CIA due to their incremental acquisitions over the years. Persons wishing to learn more about the press should check out articles on Project Mockingbird, Frank Wisner's Mighty Wurlitzer, and the history of the Washington Post. My point with this note is that given the intensity and severity of opposition these many JFK researchers have faced from what should have been a free and open press, one can surmise much about the nature and scope of what the press was and is hiding, even 48 years now after the assassination.

    Worth Every Cent

    Lane develops a compelling argument for the indictment of the CIA. I could not put the book down.

    Lane's masterwork

    Mark Lane's integrity and analytical skills are beyond reproach as shown in his latest foray into the murky waters surrounding the JFK assassination. He was among the first to question the official investigation. His latest work is most convincing. God bless you, Mark Lane.
