Shane O'Sullivan, RFK Must Die

Overall, the film is a sad and puzzling disappointment. It could and should have been much better. Considering the state of knowledge in the case, and the state of computer technology, it should have been compelling in form and convincing in content, laments Jim DiEugenio.

While still backing the ARRB's mission, Jim DiEugenio criticizes some board members for publicly implying they have read all the declassified documents and that it doesn't matter, Oswald still did it – a judgment that does not fit the facts, or their own experience.
