Martin Hay reviews an article published by Haag in AFTE, about which he concludes: "It is little wonder ... that Lucien Haag limited his defense of the 'Magic' Bullet Theory to a (misleading) discussion of Governor Connally's wounds. After all, no matter how impressive his credentials and extensive his experience, there are some problems that no man can make disappear."
The Assassination of John F. Kennedy: Revisiting the Medical Data
by Mantik, David W. M.D., Ph.D., At: Journal of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery
This book is really an entry level book for the novice, an overview of the assassination that tries to touch all of its aspects. ... Its major themes, like the shooting sequence and the identification of the conspirators are not well constructed and some of his conclusions are not supported by the latest findings. And his criticism of Jim Garrison was unfortunate and unjustifiable. After finishing the book you are left with the impression that it was probably written in the 90s and not in 2013, writes Vasilios Vazakas.
A tabular index of the discussants in the debate over the origin and location of the fragment from JFK's skull found in Dealey Plaza, prepared by David Mantik.
Jim DiEugenio presents in five parts why, 50 years on, the Warren Report can no longer be taken seriously.
[Livingstone] was once a heroic pioneer in the medical evidence. His books (and Lifton's contributions, too) were invaluable introductions for me. For that I am still grateful to both. Unfortunately, I see little of value in this book, but rather lots of pointless confusion. The book should not have been written-and it should not be read, concludes David Mantik.
Despite its mistakes this is a decent enough book for the novice and general public who are not aware of the machinations of deep politics and JFK assassination case, writes Vasilios Vazakas.
I was seriously disappointed by this book ... because it fell so far short of its announced goals (of explaining and promoting critical thinking), writes David Mantik.
In reply to Michael Shermer and the LA Times, David Mantik asks why the media refuse to accept the overwhelmingly obvious conclusion that Oswald was framed.
