November 22, 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of the tragedy that has haunted America ever since. For the first time, this concise and compelling book pierces the veil of secrecy to fully document the small, tightly-held conspiracy that killed President John F. Kennedy. It explains why he was murdered, and how it was done in a way that forced many records to remain secret for almost fifty years. The Hidden History of JFK's Assassination draws on exclusive interviews with more than two dozen associates of John and Robert Kennedy, in addition to former FBI, Secret Service, military intelligence, and Congressional personnel, who provided critical first-hand information. The book also uses government files-including the detailed FBI confession of notorious Mafia godfather Carlos Marcello-to simply and clearly reveal exactly who killed JFK. Using information never published before, the book uses Marcello's own words to his closest associates to describe the plot. His confession is also backed up by a wealth of independent documentation. This book builds on the work of the last Congressional committee to investigate JFK's murder, which concluded that JFK 'was probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy, ' and that godfathers ['Santo] Trafficante [and Carlos] Marcello had the motive, means, and opportunity to assassinate President Kennedy. ' However, it also draws on exclusive files and information not available to Congress, that have only emerged in recent years, to fully explain for the first time how Marcello and Trafficante committed-and got away with-the crime of the 20th century. Some of the book's revelations will be dramatized in the upcoming Warner Brothers film Legacy of Secrecy, produced by and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, which also stars Robert De Niro as Carlos Marcello. The Hidden History of JFK's Assassination is the definitive account of the crime and the secrecy which has surrounded it.

this is the best cia-written 'hang-out.' you do realize there's a whole wing devoted to writing 'original' books that make the agency look good, or better, or heroic, or reasonable. I should say, ' the agency back then;' I have no idea of their value, today. it's so utterly common to say, 'the cia did it.' usually this is accompanied by a shrug---' what can you do about it?' here, there is an attempt to implicate the brothers Kennedy in their own destruction. similar to following a Malcolm X blueprint-explanation.

This author is one serious wackjob! So many mindless iterations and re-re-reiterations and circumlocutions? There are some really enlightening and well sourced books on the murder of President Kennedy: 1 - Battling Wall Street: the Kennedy presidency, by Donald Gibson // 2 - JFK and the Unspeakble, by James Douglass // 3 - Brothers, by David Talbot // 4 - Reclaiming Parkland, by James DiEugenio // 5 - Mary's Mosaic, by Peter Janney // 6 - Rockefellerocracy: the Kennedy assassination, Watergate, and the monopoly of philanthropic foundations, by Richard James DeSocio // 7 - Family of Secrets, by Russ Baker // 8 - The Kennedy Assassination Coverup, by Donald Gibson // 9 - Conspiracy Theory in America, by Lance deHaven-Smith // 10 - Thy Will Be Done, by Gerard Colby and Charlotte Dennett [although this last book isn't about the assassination, quite a bit of the material in this book will background it.]
Four shooters that day: Lucien Conein [CIA], Jean Rene Souetre [French Army deserter, OAS assassin, a CIA generated explusion order would be issued for that day on Souetre - - thus providing military aircraft to whisk him away], Mozes Maschkivitzan [CIA contract killer, previously involved with the Lumumba assassination and Belgian wanted criminal and smuggler], Lazlo the Hungarian [French Foreign Legion deserter, OAS weapons specialist]; the planners: Allen Dulles, his cousin, Tracy Barnes, William Harvey and McGeorge Bundy.
