Utmost Respect for Mr.Gaeton Fonzi

The author, comes across to me, as one of the most credible investigators of the murder of JFK. I would have absolutely loved to have met this man and listened to his wisdom. I remember the day I heard that our President was shot, and I saw Lee Harvey Oswald murdered that weekend, live on TV. Everyone I knew was weeping with intense sadness. It was a horrible day for our country. How could this happen in the great ole USA? And so, our generation had to live with this tragedy and then live with the lies our leaders told us about this event. Gaeton Fonzi has helped me tie up; many of the loose ends I had in my mind about that time in our history in a very credible and detailed book. For me the book is very interesting and it was hard to put it down. Gaeton was one of the true patriots of our day. Great book. Thank-you Audible for allowing the truth to be revealed through this book.

Important for JFK scholars

Fonzi gives us unprecedented insight into the House Special Committee on Assassinations and how agents of the Government kept the truth from coming out...yet again. God rest your soul, Mr. Fonzi.

Any additional comments?

Somehow disappointed about the Title.It is the author's last investigation, but not the JFK case.I am looking for Who killed JFK, Why and How?The author told me it is not LAH, maybe CIA, maybe LBJ, maybe...After reading this book, I did not know who, why & how, so I have to move on to look for more information from other books. But this book helped me to assure that it is a conspiracy.

Redundant

It is interesting in parts. Much too much about Cubans. Could have been far far shorter and more to the point.

Well... Talk about UNscientific speculation

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Well... Talk about UNscientific speculation

Very unscientific... very emotional...

I think this book has truths to it, but it's muddled in the annoying HIPPIE parts...

Great research and compilation

Everyone should read this book. It reveals all of the problems with these secret organizations which practice covertly from decades to decades. Even the President is not privy as they seek to work around him. Plausible deniability is their credence! They kill their own, they contract killings on other people and this will show the clear connection to LBJ and the CIA as co-conspirators in having JFK killed and the massive coverup for a half a century.

Awesome read, of a very complex investigation.

The primary theory, thus essence (in reality), was on point- "TRUTH," was assassinated in the end.

The hunt for the mysterious Maurice Bishop

Federal investigator Gaeton Fonzi gives us the inside story of the HSCA reinvestigation of the JFK assassination. This started out with such great hope and optimism that finally a true and proper enquiry would be carried out. Sadly it was not to be as almost before it began the political squabbles in Congress commenced. Chairman and prosecutors resigned, budgets were cut and the investigation itself was quietly nobbled. Mr Fonzi was responsible for the Mimi end of the enquiry which brought him into contact with many of the key players in the Cuban expat community. We follow the thrilling hunt and exposure of the CIA's mysterious Maurice Bishop subsequently identified as David Atlee Phillips. This is a really great book but some previous knowledge of the JFK assassination is required to get the maximum enjoyment out of the at times fast paced story. Superbly narrated once again by Mr Noah Michael Levine.

Enthralling!

This is book that the author knew the subject well. He was an investigator on the second
Senate investigation into the demise of J F K. It shows the unlawful withholding, purgery and stonewalling by Government departments, especially the Security section.
I recommend a good companion to this theory. 'JFK and the unspeakable', by James Douglas. Although fhey are by different authors, the
evidence becomes more compelling.

Beyond terrible

You got the wrong end of the stick I'm afraid. You should have devoted your energy to something useful. This says and, more importantly, proves absolutely nothing. Needless to say I remain steadfastly with Burlusconi and the Warren Commision until otherwise proven.

Detailed and thoroughly researched

This long listen is not easy as it becomes more and more intricate and penetrative into the CIA era of the sixties and decades after. I found it convincing and credible. The American people and the world have been blatantly duped about JFK's assassination and how his visions were destroyed by powerful forces from within.

Depressing and illuminating

To those of us of a certain age the assassination of President Kennedy was a never to be unforgettable shock. As soon as it happened I recall rumours abounding that it was a conspiracy. Even to non-experts it seemed impossible that Oswald could have achieved such precisely targeted shots on a moving target. This book is an exhaustive investigation into the numerous investigations that were repeatedly thwarted by political interference or the CIA refusing to cooperate or to positively lie about their involvement. The book chronicles the sheer number of times that the CIA has tried to interfere in other countries, the political colour of which didn't suit the USA, even resorting to assassinating their leaders or at least trying to. Fidel Castro seems to have escaped that fate numerous times!
It's depressing and frightening what government agencies get up to in secret and unanswerable for their actions.

A brilliant account of the assassination investigations.

If you are interested in the assassination of President Kennedy and the subsequent investigations, rumours and conspiracy theories associated with it, this is the book to read. This is the most detailed and forthright account I have ever read.
