History Will Prove Us Right

Item Details

On November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was murdered in front of hundreds of onlookers. Everything was over in mere seconds, but the events of that day have been the subject of heated debate for five decades. The presidential commission tasked with finding the truth, headed by then-Chief Justice Earl Warren, published its findings the following year--Oswald had acted alone--but the report did little to quell conspiracy theorists. Many seized on what they saw as inconsistencies in the report and branded the whole investigation a cover-up. Warren himself calmly dismissed the criticism, assuring his fellow commission members that "history will prove us right." Now, in this eye-opening new account of the Commission and its findings, Howard P. Willens sets out to prove that Warren's advice was prescient. Willens, one of the few surviving staff members of the Warren Commission, supervised the investigation from the very beginning and has waited until now to silence the critics and well-intentioned armchair detectives.  Drawn from Willens' own journals and extensive notes on the investigation--which have never before been published-- History Will Prove Us Right tells the true and complete story, perhaps for the first time, of every aspect of the investigation into one of the century's most harrowing events from a uniquely first-person perspective. .

Junk book. Read Recaliming Parkland by James DiEugenio and Breach of Trust by James McKnight instead.

Both a bizarre and absurd book of the first order! Most obviously, no reviewer has yet to read that travesty of balderdash, the Warren Commission "Report" - - anyone with an I.Q. of at least 100, who is both sane and honest, would never remotely suggest what either of the reviews suggested. A conspiracy theorist would be both reviewers who have the unmitigated gall and dishonesty to comment on something they've never, ever even read! ! ! The very mention of Edwin Walker, without mentioning his involvement in the leading of murderous attacks against the integration of the University of Mississippi, after which President John F. Kennedy and Attorney General Bobby Kennedy, had Walker institutionalized (he was later sprung by connected Republican politicians). This book reeks of so much dishonesty: I would dare any ethical American to read the entire report and not come to these very same - and sane - conclusions (discrepancies abound, and much because the chief counsel was Rankin, none other than J. Edgar Hoover's personal attorney for many years prior to the assassination!). Any American citizen who would dare comment on this report - without ever having read it - should be immediately deported! (Please note the author notes never mentions the name of the law firm the deceitful Willens work at for his legal career? My first two, of over one thousand, important questions to the traitor Willens: (1) Why was it that Chief Council Rankin would mention Lee Oswald's training at the Defense Language Institute at Monterey, CA., while in the Marines, which would contradict his having been a radar specialist or air traffic control specialist and trained at Keesler AFB, and it was never followed up on? And, (2) Why was the next obvious question never asked of Dallas Mayor Earl Cabell [brother of fired CIA guy, Gen. Cabell], after Mayor Cabell admits to knowing Jack Ruby closely for quite a few years?) Read the darn report, all you real tinfoilers who work for, and support, the fraudulent status quo! [FYI: The two heads of the commission, Allen Dulles and John McCloy were long financially involved with the Rockefeller family. Both Allen and his brother, John Foster, represented that family through their law practises (and John Foster had married into the Rockefeller-Morgan family, while McCloy would later go on to be chairman of Rockefeller's bank, the Chase Manhattan Bank.]
