Litwin and the Warren Report

As an introduction to the Fred Litwin Follies, Jim DiEugenio reviews his first book, which attempts to validate the Warren Commission using the thesis that “the authors of the Warren Report were honorable men who conducted an honest investigation and reached the right answer.” Jim, of course, decimates this thesis using a wealth of facts clearly available in the historical record.

Yawn. Litwin character assassinates Jim Garrison, while concealing FBI and CIA interference in his investigation; he tops that off by whitewashing David Ferrie.

Caitlin Johnstone, JFK, and the Insurrection

Jim DiEugenio interacts with some of Caitlin Johnstone’s published thoughts on what she terms the “Capitol Hill Riot” and looks at the insurrection from the perspective of a JFK research community seeking justice and accountability whatever the cost.

Jim DiEugenio guest authors an article for CovertAction magazine, wherein he demonstrates that the Kennedy administration engaged with socialist and non-aligned leaders like Nasser and Sukarno, supported diplomatic solutions to conflict through the UN, stood up to European imperial agents, and was generally against right-wing coups and military intervention. In light of these foreign policies, the presidency and assassination of John Kennedy need to be reevaluated.
