When there was a second Kennedy assassination, it seemed like the end of hope. Many of Bobby’s followers turned to the right and voted for George Wallace in the general election, a Southern governor who stood for segregation. What made it even worse – if humanly possible – is that there was no attempt for justice for Bobby.

November 22, 1963. President John F. Kennedy gunned down in Dallas. The Crime of the Century. Or at least last century's Crime of the Century. What really happened, and does it matter today?
My ebook, CIA & JFK: The Secret Assassination Files is based on thousands of pages of newly-declassified records and scores of interviews with former CIA officers.
In telling the story of my JFK research over twenty years, I lay bare the role of CIA employees involved in the events of 1963.
These are the men and women whose secretive actions related to the breakdown of presidential security on Nov. 22, 1963 were never explained by the U.S. government.
A talk by Bill Simplich and Larry Hancock about the CIA’s assassinaton program.
Here’s a powerful piece of journalism by the late Gaeton Fonzi, rescued from the Memory Hole of American history by the Mary Ferrell Foundation. It is a twenty year old essay that couldn’t be more timely in 2016. As the United States and Cuba attempt to reconcile after fifty years of violent conflict, Fonzi’s reportage explains why the process is so difficult and so necessary.

HIs violent death was a terrible loss for the country. Yet the CIA still hasn’t released all of its JFK assassination files. Next month, I will publish a short ebook that exposes this sorry state of affairs and explains what can be done about it in 2017.

Indeed, the complex reality of how a president of the United States came to be gunned down on a sunny day, and no one lost his liberty — or his job — continues to live and grow in popular memory.
One perennial question people have about the JFK story is, Who do you believe? One credible witness is a man named Bill Newman. He was there, about 15 feet from JFK, when the gunfire rang out. His testimony is important. Read more
It has never been any secret that many serious people at the top of the U.S. government did not believe that President Kennedy was killed by a proverbial “lone nut.” But the elites of Washington have always preferred to ignore such suspicions.
Until today, when former New York Times reporter Phil Shenon reports in Politico magazine on the conspiratorial suspicions of one David Slawson, a retired law professor who investigated JFK’s assassination for the Warren Commission and now admits he got it wrong.
Slawson’s views are not unprecedented in elite power circles of Washington. Far from it.

In a new post at HowardWillens.com, Willens says the dispute should be broken down into three questions:
