John F. Kennedy
- Major Ralph P. Ganis, The Skorzeny Papers: Evidence for the Plot to Kill JFK Written by Michael Le Flem
From Michael's conclusion: Ganis’ book is an uncomfortable, freewheeling careen down strange dead-end tracks, with unannounced detours through cold dark streets full of faceless characters, and later, journeys through mirror-filled fun houses of speculation, with a final twist and turn that spits you out right over Niagara Falls, barrel and all.
- Robert A. Wagner, The Assassination of JFK: Perspectives Half A Century Later Written by David Mantik
Dr. Mantik states: “It is unique for me to write a second review, but too much remained unsaid after the first review. Wagner’s book clearly required more attention, especially since his profound mistakes are so often duplicated by the unenlightened mainstream media.”
(Robert Wagner has now responded to this second version; read it here)
- Jim DeBrosse, See No Evil: The JFK Assassination and the U.S. Media Written by Michael Le Flem
Michael Le Flem reviews a book about reporting on the JFK case by a reporter. The book starts out quite strong and rigorous, but about halfway through it goes off the rails. But the first part is worth reading.

As with other high-profile assassinations in the 1960s, the major media immediately began a propaganda campaign in support of the state-approved version of events, writes Joseph Green.

- John R. Bohrer, The Revolution of Robert Kennedy
The best volume on Robert Kennedy I have read since Arthur Schlesinger’s two volume set in 1978. If you want to know about Bobby Kennedy’s life, the Schlesinger book is your choice. But if you want to know who RFK was in his last years, this is the book to read. No politician I know of ever did or said these kinds of things at home and abroad, writes Jim DiEugenio.
- The Kennedys and Civil Rights: How the MSM Continues to Distort History, Part 4
In the final part of this essay, Jim turns to the “War on Poverty”, showing how the Kennedys, with David Hackett in the lead, were planning that program before JFK's civil rights bill was passed, and how, once Johnson took office, it was altered from its original intent and handed over to local authorities who hijacked it.

In the third part of this review essay, Jim enumerates in detail the accomplishments of the Kennedy White House in the area of civil rights over the span of its brief three years, appending a table comparing these with those of the previous three administrations.
