The writings of Vincent J Salandria on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy are historic, foundational, and essential to any serious scholar interested in understanding the real dynamics of the Kennedy murder and its place as a terrible and pivotal moment of the American Century. In his 1967 book Six Seconds in Dallas, Josiah Thompson notes that what he terms the “second generation” of assassination researchers—including Mark Lane, Edward J. Epstein, Harold Weisberg, Raymond Marcus, Léo Sauvage, Richard Popkin—owe “a deep debt to Salandria’s pioneering and largely unsung research.” Thompson is accurate, since Salandria is in the front rank of Warren Commission critics, and the prescience of his analysis is an instruction to all interested people.
Vincent Salandria, a lawyer and JFK conspiracy theorist par excellence, sits down to break bread with his lifelong antagonist Arlen Specter, the inventor of the Single Bullet Theory.
It’s a fascinating story, told with restraint by Robert Huber in his article “Vince Salandria: The JFK Conspiracy Theorist” in Philadelphia magazine,
