Horrible book full of a whole lot of revisionistic nonsense and lies. // Marie Tippit, widow of Officer J.D. Tippit, Oswald's other victim that day \\ No court ever convicted Oswald, and the man witnessed leaving the policeman's shooting did not match Oswald's description. Oswald was gunned down - - while in police custody no less - - by Jacob Rubenstein, who went by the name of Jack Ruby. John Kerry is mentioned, yet somehow the author neglects to mention that Kerry was related to Michael Paine [Michael and Ruth Paine rented the living space to Oswald's wife and child, and are supposed to have helped him obtain his job at the Texas School Book Depository]. Michael Paine is descendant of the Cabot, Forbes and Dudley family, while Kerry is a descendant of the Forbes, Winthrop and Dudley families. Dan Rather is featured, yet Rather never uncovered any of this - - guess teleprompter readers make for poor journalists? Does the book mention that Ruth Hyde Paine [who is featured in it] had a sister and brother-in-law who were both career CIA? Or that Ruth Hyde Paine was related to John Foster Dulles' wife, an Avery, related to both the Rockefeller and Morgan families?
