Regarding the events of 11/23/63: the "establishment" would have us believe that those who doubt the "truth" of the Lone-Nut-Theory are a fanatic, conspiracy mongering lunatic fringe. Newman's book, with it's solid foundation built on actual declassified CIA/FBI/ONI/State Dept documents, answers that charge. His focus here is about what the government intelligence services knew about Oswald from his defection up to the death of the President. I am aware that some number of books regarding the assassination are wild and inaccurate, fraught with speculation and guess work. This book, one of the best in the genre, takes the tone of the old Dragnet TV show: Just the facts, maam. No sensationalism. No exclamation points. It displays a tedious attention to detail that is welcome in dealing with this topic. Newman's intelligence backround and his historians discerning eye make this book a must read for those interested in the truth surrounding the death of a president. He avoids speculation and when a supposition is necessary to understand evidence (i.e. how two data points might be related) it is clearly stated. Those of my age will recall that we were assured, "back in the day", (by the Warren Commission et al): there was insufficient documentation in the intel record to cause any concern about Oswald prior to the assassination. He was a minor character. Nobody really much had any interest in him. Yeah, well.... try to sell that now that we have the actual record. A mind blowing example: examination of the declassified record proves the CIA had knowledge that Oswald (or someone impersonating him) had contact with a high level KGB operative in Mexico City who was known to be an assassination expert, just before the jFK assassination. If you were only going to read ONE book on this topic, this would be one of about three that I would recommend. Enjoy

Little discrepancies are taken as proving that the CIA was all over Lee Harvey Oswald and must be responsible for John F. Kennedy's murder. This is one of the more famous of the JFK assassination conspiracy books but not neceaarily one of the best.
