Oswald's Game really tells us more about the biases and obsessions of Jean Davison on the Kennedy case than it does about its ostensible subject. Which is really the worst thing one can say about a biographer, concludes Jim DiEugenio.
The once progressive co-author of A Populist Manifesto with this book has written the worst kind of alternative history, one seriously colored by the view from the present, and more specifically, of those who won and those who lost, with a decided bias in favor of those who won, writes Jim DiEugenio.
Jim DiEugenio presents in five parts why, 50 years on, the Warren Report can no longer be taken seriously.
Hasan Yusuf reviews DPD Sergeant Gerald Hill's activities on November 22, 1963 and their implications for complicity in Lee Harvey Oswald's being charged with the Tippit murder.
Bob Groden has been a true champion of the case for the public. He has devoted much of his adult life trying to show that the Warren Commission was nothing but a sham meant to conceal the true facts of Kennedy's death. His current book is a decidedly mixed bag of virtues and liabilities. But taken as a trilogy, his last three books form what is the best photo library available in book form on this case, writes Jim DiEugenio.
John Kelin reports on the letter Antonio Veciana wrote to Marie Fonzi on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination, confirming the identification of Phillips with the alias Maurice Bishop.
The second and concluding installment of a long and detailed critique of Myer's arguments for Oswald's culpability in the Tippit murder.

This is a good enough documentary for the novice, but it does not contain enough information that is vital to understanding this complex case. I also believe that there were plenty of good researchers to recruit instead of David Kaiser, who, with all due respect, is just a better version of Robert Blakey, writes Vasilios Vazakas.
Joseph McBride replies to Dale Myer's crticisms, concluding: "I am hardly surprised to be subjected to the same basically irrelevant treatment by an author who either refuses to deal seriously with the many genuine issues of the Tippit case or is incapable of doing so, as his book and article seem to indicate."
