There is really nothing new in the book and its central thesis is simply not supported by the evidence. That CIA rogues were a part of the plot to kill Kennedy has been written before and in a far more persuasive manner than Nolan manages, writes Martin Hay.
Jim DiEugenio's second book on the JFK assassination, which takes Bugliosi's pretentious and inflated bag of obfuscation as its framework for dismantling the Warren Commission, the Clark Panel, and the HSCA, and for further revealing how beholden the film and TV industry has become to Washington in general and to the CIA in particular. A masterful dissection of a rotting corpse, and the rightful heir to Accessories after the Fact. [Al Rossi]
Hasan Yusuf examines the Warren Commission claims about the twp Oswald jackets, one allegedly discovered in the Texas School Book Depository, the other allegedly discarded near the Texas Theater.
Oliver Stone and Zach Sklar reply (yet again) to media criticism of JFK.
[This] book is more about the CIA's nefarious and illegal operations, including the MK/ULTRA project. If you are interested in learning more about the shadowy world of the CIA, this is a good book. If you are interested in learning more about what happened to JFK and why he was assassinated, I believe there are many books out there that do a better job in answering your questions, writes Vasilios Vazakas.
An interesting and worthwhile work. ... it has a unique approach to it, and Hancock’s analysis of the crime has sophistication, intelligence and nuance to it, writes Jim DiEugenio.
Rosenbaum represents all that is wrong with the MSM on both Jim Angleton and the JFK case, writes Jim DiEugenio.
El Exigente does the same thing with Angleton as he does with the critics. Except in reverse. He hides the worst aspects, softens the weak spots, and covers up the man's disasters. And, most necessary of all, he completely censors Angleton's associations with Oswald, writes Jim DiEugenio.
At the end of his review of JFK and the Unspeakable, DiEugenio wrote that Jim Douglass’ book was the best in the field since Gerald McKnight’s. The author’s own book has a dual distinction. It is the best book on Garrison yet written, and it is the best work on the JFK case since the Douglass book, writes Albert Rossi.
