 JFK Declassified: Tracking Oswald, Part 5

Arnaldo Fernandez on the History Channel’s misguided, and now disappeared, JFK series.

After mixing Oswald with the anti-Castro and CIA-backed paramilitaries of Alpha 66 in a weird pot made of “special intent to kill President Kennedy soup”, Baer keeps on blighting a big-budget TV show by ignoring the body of the evidence, writes Arnaldo Fernandez.  With an insert by Milicent Cranor on the History Channel’s version of the “jet effect”.

History Channel, CIA officer to examine ‘The Declassified Oswald;” The Internet will be fact-checking

JFK DeclassifiedThe History Channel’s upcoming documentary series, “JFK Declassified: Tracking Oswald” sounds enticing. A videogenic and decorated former CIA operations officer Robert Baer revisits the secret intelligence dimensions of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Baer is not the worst choice for a guide to the JFK story. He is an incisive commentator on CIA affairs, and no apologist. He rejects torture and expresses skepticism on drones.
