Overview

Weisberg’s first volume in the Whitewash series dissected the Warren Report and its failure to confront evidence of conspiracy in the JFK assassination. In this sequel he shows how the agencies of the investigation—the FBI, the Secret Service, the Dallas police, and the lawyers who worked for the Commission—made this possible by often corrupting evidence and consistently avoiding pursuit of clear and critical evidence pointing to and defining a conspiracy. The author demonstrates that their failure was rooted not only in institutional inability but also in a deliberately twisted investigative structure.
In the years since its original publication in 1974, the books in Weisberg’s Whitewash series have become classics of assassination literature and have established the author as one of the premier investigators and researchers in his field. Decades later, the shocking revelations painstakingly detailed in his work have lost none of their impact, and the information uncovered beneath the government’s whitewash is crucial to understanding the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

Editorial Reviews

New Orleans Review
“Harold Weisberg’s four [Whitewash] books are a series of honest and penetrating studies of what the government and its agencies did or did not do.”
Los Angeles Times
“Often dubbed the dean of assassination researchers.”
