The author was one of the doctors present at Parkland hospital Nov. 22, 1963, the day of the assassination. He saw what he saw. He knows what he saw. He saw a medical scene with the trained eye of a doctor. His memory appears to be excellent, his recollections vivid. He saw frontal wounds. just like they all did. After all, he was a doctor. Most, if not all, of the Parkland doctors who testified under oath apparently initially told the truth. What is disconcerting is how they, later, began to hedge and back off certain things they were more certain about early on. Were they intimidated? Dr. Crenshaw, the author, explains why he waited so long to write his book. What his remembrance means, relative to a critical review of the Warren Commission, is disturbing. It is truly sad that he, an American, would have to admit to fear at the prospect of speaking out freely as a citizen. He is to be commended, however, for finally doing so. And the Commission? Ignoring the observations of highly focussed witnesses, observations corroborated by multiple highly trained and intelligent fellow professionals, all of whom saw the same thing, was no way to investigate the facts as they unfolded. That is, if one assumes the Commission even wanted the truth. The final report is what the sheep were led to believe in 1964 when it came out. Personally, I am convinced that these doctors saw exactly what they said they saw. It almost seems silly to have to say it. But their collective testimony and very capable observations were essentially overruled by a distant commission disinterested in the facts, facts based on eye witness accounts. The testimonial contributions of the doctors and nurses present were essentially negated. This book needs no other alongside it to utterly destroy the credibility of the Warren Report conclusions. In fact,it does much to raise immense doubts as to whether the Commission itself was complicit in spearheading a massive, if desperate, whitewash and frame-up. Even now, I still have to wonder why such eminent politicians and leaders were willing to risk it all?
