A complaint, addressed to the American Historical Association by professor Paul Bleau, accusing historians of actually violating their own code of conduct in their treatment of the JFK assassination.


The JFK Assassination According to the History Textbooks

Subject: Complaint

Hello,

A few years ago I completed a study on how history books cover the JFK assassination and how the authors justified their writings. Overwhelmingly the authors portray it as a crime committed by a lone nut who was killed 2 days later by another loner. The Warren Commission is the key source (as well as a few authors who back the lone nut scenario). The other subsequent investigations as well as work done by independent researchers who back conspiracy scenarios are not on the radar. The result is that young students who are part of a captive audience are being given an incomplete, biased account of this historical event.

I believe that on this issue, historians are violating their code of conduct by not honoring the historical record. Two articles about this issue are published on the following website: http://www.ctka.net/2016/PaulBleau1.html and http://www.ctka.net/2016/bleau-historians/historians-and-the-jfk-assassination-part-1.html.

Interviews were also given on BlackOp radio: http://www.blackopradio.com/archives2016.html.

I am hoping that the AHA can look into this situation and encourage its members to reconsider how to present this information to students in a more balanced and up to date manner.

Thank you, Paul Bleau College Professor
