Dr. Mantik states: “It is unique for me to write a second review, but too much remained unsaid after the first review. Wagner’s book clearly required more attention, especially since his profound mistakes are so often duplicated by the unenlightened mainstream media.”

Michael Le Flem reviews a book about reporting on the JFK case by a reporter. The book starts out quite strong and rigorous, but about halfway through it goes off the rails. But the first part is worth reading.
The strength of the book lies in the tracing of the Oswald files through the CIA under Angleton’s dominion. No book on Angleton has done this before. And that is certainly a commendable achievement. Hopefully, this will become a staple of future Angleton scholarship, writes Jim DiEugenio.
Ronald Redmon follows up on an earlier article with this overview and tribute to Eugene Dinkin, who died in 2012 in Los Angeles.

There is a long list of books about which it can be rightly said they have added nothing to our understanding of JFK’s murder because their authors placed their conclusions first and then twisted, warped, and distorted the details to fit. Wagner’s book undoubtedly belongs on that list, concludes Martin Hay.
Jim DiEugenio responds to Max Holland's preposterous lament that the MSM was guilty of much ado about nothing by spending an unwarranted two weeks covering the recent NARA releases of JFK documents.
Files supposedly declassified in full but mostly or entirely redacted, a national security apparatus which thwarts the law, and a media given to smug, glib or downright misinformed dismissals of both the process and content of the document releases mandated by the JFK Act: Jim DiEugenio reviews the current state of (non-) disclosure concerning the event which marked a crucial turning point in our nation's history and consciousness.
