JFK Assassination Scenarios is the Facebook page for a closed group that proclaims it is dedicated “solely for the purpose of putting forward YOUR strongest theory regarding WHY JFK was assassinated, What conspiratorial faction was involved, and How the assassination was pulled off.”
“An investigation of the Kennedy assassination was a project I suggested when I first entered the White House [in 1969]. I had always been intrigued with the conflicting theories of the assassination. Now I felt we would be in a position to get all the facts. But Nixon turned me down.”

So I decided I would write something after the 50th anniversary and I never got around to it.
Then a British pundit, Dr. James Boys, wrote this review, which pretty much said everything I was going to say, and said it better.
