Originally published in 1992, Destiny Betrayed focused on New Orleans district attorney Jim Garrison’s investigation into JFK’s murder. In this revised second edition, James DiEugenio puts greater focuses on the assassination itself while shedding new light on Garrison’s investigation.
Using the declassification process of the Assassination Records Review Board, DiEugenio has found the most current information on subjects including Clay Shaw and the Garrison investigation; US-Cuban policy from 1957 to 1963; the newly exposed mistaken beliefs of the Warren Commission; Kennedy’s challenge to the Cold War consensus in 1961 and where he came up with that challenge, and more. Looking at the politics of Kennedy’s America, along with the New Orleans aspects of the Kennedy murder investigation, and the Garrison inquiry, Destiny Betrayed uses new data to strengthen Garrison’s case.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Jim DiEuginio's master work of carefully researched and documented analysis of the most crucial points in JFK's history is a must read for any serious truth seeker. Thanks in part to the newly declassified documents of the Assassination Records & Review Board and the previous House Select Committee on Assassinations we now have a much broader understanding of the forces at work that conspired to remove Kennedy and ensure that no future president would follow his hard line against those who sought to control American foreign policy with an iron fist. This work chronicles not just the Garrison case that was later brought against Claw Shaw and made famous by Oliver Stone's movie JFK but also provides the necessary context for understanding that there was more to Kennedy's assassination than some lone nut Russian defector who got a lucky shot. For anyone considering studying this case, this is a great start and has the sourced documentation to back up the author's observations. The more you understand what happened to Kennedy, the better you'll understand what has happened to America since, but don't take my word for it. You're a responsible adult, you are free to research for yourself despite what the "debunkers" and establishment historians have to say.
