A recent Daily Mail article on JFK’s assassination highlighted James Johnson’s new book, Murder Inc.: The CIA Under President John F. Kennedy which argues Cuba government may have been involved.
There are many reasons to doubt this conspiracy theory, which I detailed in this 2012 article for Salon. Those reasons still apply. But Johnson is right about one thing: The central role of James Angleton, CIA counterintelligence chief in obstructing the JFK investigation is highly suspicious. Those suspicions, in fact, reached the highest levels of the CIA itself.
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.

By setting up a series of straw men, adopting a supercilious tone, and ignoring new evidence, Dale Myers manages to unpleasantly restate the official theory of a lone gunman in a way that makes it less convincing than ever.
Fifty-two long years, and still nothing to exonerate Oswald or uncover the so-called “true conspirators.”
Dealey Plaza in downtown Dallas will be closed this week for the filming of a miniseries about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy
When I was in Dallas on the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination I watched a contracted work crew scraping off the painted white X marking the exactly spot on Elm Street where President Kennedy shot down. Out out damned spot, cried Lady Macbeth as did the Dallas city fathers. The stain must be excised.
The white X has returned to Dealey Plaza and so has mythmaker Stephen King, according to KDFW. The inventive and prolific novelist is staging his time travel JFK yarn, November 22, 1963 on the scene of the crime,
