Publisher's Summary

On November 22, 1963, Dr. Charles Crenshaw, an accomplished surgeon, tried to save John F. Kennedy's life - and then days later, the life of the alleged assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald. His gripping, firsthand account contradicts the Warren Commission and years of public misperception, and illuminates a chapter in American history long cloaked in conspiracy. Writing with eye-opening immediacy, Dr. Crenshaw takes listeners into the emergency room to share the critical events at Parkland Hospital as he lived them. Now updated, his searing testimony punctures myths and shatters a cover-up of massive proportions.

©2013 Dr. Charles A. Crenshaw, Jens Hansen, J. Gary Shaw, and Cyril Wecht. Foreword © 2013 by Robert K. Tanenbaum (P)2013 Tantor

Doctors can be silenced...

Dr. Crenshaw reveals the pressure brought upon the Parkland physicians who attended JFK in Trauma Room 1 that fateful day, mostly by Baylor University administrators and foundation members.

In a nation where over 70% of research grants are funded by the DOD, it is not surprising that our "thought leaders" would rather pay their mortgages and keep their children in private schools than be intellectually honest.
President Eisenhower warned of this exact thing in his famous farewell address.


He was right, it worked!

Too much inflammatory language

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes.

For me, the main issue raised by Dr. Crenshaw is the actual wounds to President Kennedy’s body. Dr. Crenshaw’s eyewitness account needs unqualified corroboration from the other doctors and nurses in the operating room at the time. Clear, concise, and unqualified corroboration will place the Bethesda autopsy results in doubt and require an investigation. Unfortunately, as Dr. Crenshaw pointed out, and there is a historical record of, the Federal, State, and Local law enforcement authorities allowed contamination of the crime scene, pollution of the physical evidence, and improper handling of the victim (President Kennedy). Because of these egregious mistakes we will probably never know the truth of what happened.I do think the Warren Commission was proving a theory they had already decided was fact.

Would you recommend JFK Has Been Shot to your friends? Why or why not?

I do recommend this book. The reader (or listener) just needs to ignore the inflammatory language and listen for the issue and testimony.

Which character – as performed by James C. Lewis – was your favorite?

Unimportant and irrelevant.

Was JFK Has Been Shot worth the listening time?

Yes. Fortunately, it was mostly brief and too the point.

Any additional comments?
