This is an important book in my opinion as the references take you to the online documents mentioned as references if you by the ebook version. So much information and the original version as presented in the Warren Comission and HSCA than enables the reader to understand the political intrigue, coverup of vital information not disclosed to the public! This book is a great addition to any Kennedy Assassination Theorists and those who wish to stick to the Govt endorsed conclusions. Good Bless Jackie Kenndy, her children, Marina Oswald and her children and all who seek the truth.
What this book isn’t is a look at the evidence from a neutral point-of-view of both sides of the argument, the official view of a lone gunman and the conspiracy view. That said, it gives a good starting point for the conspiracy side, introducing some of the issues that need further exploration. It made me do this again, as it is and still remains the best conspiracy theory of all time, mainly because most people don’t believe the official view.
Objective, up to date, Bojczuk presents a lot of evidence and several different theories. The only 3 weaknesses I found were: Bojczuk curiously hardly touches on the murder of officer Tippet, which surely is important to the theory that Oswald wasn't even one of the killers (a possibility seriously considered in this book). Why did Oswald kill him if Oswald wasn't a shooter? Someone who never shot at the president, walking home from the office minutes after the president was just shot and killed outside his office window, now kills for the first time, an officer approaching him? We should be treated to a discussion (nowhere here) of why Oswald had a pistol on him--why not discuss it, if you are discussing the theory Oswald never shot at JFK? Nothing is said about whether Oswald normally had a pistol at work in the depository or any of his previous jobs. Second, we are told several times eyewitnesses said Oswald didn't carry a rifle to work. That is weak evidence blown up to be significant. If I am for the first time sneaking a rifle into my work, and have not done that before, and have no friends at work, it wouldn't be impossible to walk by fellow workers I never speak with and get it past them. Hardly impossible: no one is even considering I have a rifle in my pant leg, etc. Last: The lack of physical evidence from the chemical/proton test on Oswald's right cheek (cast) is taken here as proving or showing with very high probability Oswald didn't fire the rifle found in the depository (even if he mail ordered that rifle), but then nowhere is it mentioned how a ski mask or any other piece of cloth could have easily been used by Oswald between his cheek and the rifle he fired. This is an ex-marine and a marksman. Why not? The book emphasizes the physical evidence that Oswald shot a gun (chemical tests on his hands) but then "proves" he didn't fire the rifle since the test of Oswald's cheek was negative. That is hardly proof he didn't fire the rifle found in the depository! Very easy to use a cloth over the rifle's butt.
I have been a JFK assassination student for 30 years. I've read just about everything there is to read on the subject and watched all the documentaries. And I've visited the TSBD museum in Dallas. This book is by far the clearest and most concise examination of the topic that has been attempted in 50 years. This book focuses on the areas of most controversy and examines the evidence. If you were to read only one book on the assassination, this would have to be the one. If you read and understood everything in this book, you could go on any talk show and sound like the most profound expert on the assassination. And you could ventilate the lame arguments of anyone who has not read this book or not devoted many years to the examination of the JFK assassination and the aftermath. Also, it is highly readable, even by people, like my 14-yr-old son, who know little about the events.
