Howard Willens, a former senior staff attorney for the Warren Commission, has a new book coming out that insists the first investigation of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy was the best and most accurate.
The book is called “History Will Prove Us Right.” Read about it here on (on Amazon.com).
Willens’s confident title faintly echoes Fidel Castro’s famous words as he was put on trial in Cuba in 1953 for rebelling against a pro-American dictatorship: “History will absolve us,” he declared.
Willens thinks that history will absolve the much-abused legacy of the Warren Commission, which denied that Kennedy was killed by his enemies and insisted one man alone and unaided was responsible.
Willens is a distinguished man, but reasonable people disagree. Boston psychiatrist Martin Schotz wrote a whole book arguing the government’s JFK cover-up called: “History will not absolve us.”
And there you have the JFK impasse in a nutshell. Mr. Willens says, in effect, “you’re nuts if you don’t believe the official story.” Dr. Schotz says, “You’re nuts if you do.”
You decide who’s right.
