It has now been more than forty years since President John F. Kennedy was assassinated on the streets of Dallas on November 22, 1963. No event in the post-war era-- not even the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, has cast such a long shadow over our national life. The murder of the handsome and vigorous president shocked the nation to its core, and shook the faith of many Americans in their institutions and way of life. The repercussions from that event continue to be felt down to the present day. Looking back, it is now clear that Kennedy's death marked a historical crossroads after which point events began to move in surprising and destructive directions.

A truly horrible and atrocious pile of dung, written by yet another stooge from the Manhattan Institute [where Judy Miller obtained a high-paying position after planting stories by Dick Cheney in the NY Times] in full agreement with everything from that Warren Commission Report - - which any sane person fully disagrees with!
Of course, had Pierson bothered to read the declassified documents concerned, he would have read that the CIA generated an expulsion order [an order for deportation] for Jean Rene Souetre, known assassin and member of the French terrorist and fascist organization, the OAS, on Nov. 22, 1963 in Dallas, TX.
[So on the very day and place the assassination of President Kennedy occurs, a foreign rightwing assassin is ordered to be deported, thus allowing for the requisition of a military aircraft to fly him [and any associates] back to Europe?!?!?!?]
And another declassified document detailing an inquiry to the whereabouts of Mozes Maschkivitzan, a Belgian criminal the CIA will enlist as a contract killer in Europe and Africa, and on Nov. 22, 1963 in Dallas, Texas!
On that day, Lucien Conein [CIA], Jean Rene Souetre [French Army officer/deserter and member of the OAS], Mozes Maschkivitzan, Belgian criminal and CIA contract killer, and Lazlo the Hungarian [French Foreign Legion deserter and OAS member], the weapons specialist of the group, would simultaneously fire Mannlicher-Carcano rifles at President John F. Kennedy, and 13 doctors, 4 nurses, 2 photo technicians [one at Parkland, the other at the Bethesda autopsy], along with numerous Dallas PD, witnesses and several Texas State Police, would attest that there was a gaping wound in the back of JFK's head, where one-quarter of his brain mass exited!
Really, a truly horrible waste of paper this book was. [And the 731st book regarding the JFK assassination I have read!]
