“The dean of assassination researchers” explores Lee Harvey Oswald’s activities in the months leading up to the murder of JFK (Los Angeles Times). Harold Weisberg was foremost among the trailblazers who saw the inadequacy of the Warren Report’s solution to the crime of the century. He tirelessly petitioned the government and used the courts to force release of withheld documents, and wrote dozens of books and manuscripts on the subject. Oswald in New Orleans focuses on the strange summer of 1963 during which Lee Harvey Oswald was in the Big Easy, where his apparent “lone nut” pro-Castro activities have puzzled researchers for many years. Taken in the context of Weisberg’s numerous books on the subject, this in-depth account of Oswald’s time in New Orleans brings clarity to the events that would follow. This book discusses the many odd stories and colorful personalities of the Oswald–New Orleans scene including: Dean Andrews, David Ferrie, Sylvia Odio, Orest Pena, Carlos Bringuier, Loran Hall, and others. Published in the early days of the ill-fated Garrison investigation, Oswald in New Orleans remains an important analysis of those stories and persons that is no less the startling and shocking narrative today than it was when first released. The painstakingly thorough investigative research and analysis that Weisberg has conducted makes his work essential to understanding the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

"Coup d’Etat: The Overthrow of an American President": is dedicated to all those who believe the real truth behind the JFK assassination has been ignored, or worse, covered up. This project is my attempt to answer three basic questions: Why was President Kennedy assassinated? Who benefitted? And who had the power to cover it up? Coup d’État makes the case that President John F. Kennedy was killed by four powerful forces with interlocking interests, all of which were being blocked by the President and his policies. The money and accompanying intensity behind these interests united shadowy conspirators in a complicated plot to decapitate Camelot and use a diversion to cover it up afterwards. It was a hostile takeover, a “putsch.” In effect, it was the second American “revolution”, the result being a violent overthrow of a duly-elected, legitimate government. It was a Coup d’état.

Dallas, 22. November 1963 – 12:30 Uhr: Lee Harvey Oswald späht durch das Zielfernrohr seines Gewehrs. John F. Kennedys Kopf erscheint kaum einen Meter entfernt. Oswald weiß, dass er kaum Zeit haben wird. Zwei Schüsse wird er sicher abgeben können – drei, wenn er wirklich schnell ist. Sein Ziel klar vor Augen, atmet er aus und drückt den Abzug. Der erste Schuss trifft den Präsidenten im Nacken. Kennedy sackt leicht zusammen, sein Rückenkorsett, das er wegen seiner Kriegsverletzung dauernd tragen muss, hält ihn aber aufrecht. Beunruhigt wendet Jackie sich ihrem Mann zu. Sie greift nach seiner Schulter und schaut ihm ins Gesicht, um zu sehen, was los ist. Kaum fünf Sekunden sind seit dem ersten Schuss vergangen, da schlägt die zweite Kugel in Kennedys Hinterkopf ein und reißt eine klaffende Wunde. Reflexartig fährt seine Hand hoch zur Stirn, doch ein großer Teil der Schädeldecke ist weggeschleudert worden.

From the authors of Ultimate Sacrifice—”Explosive new material, based mainly on government documents from the National Archives” (Vanity Fair). John F. Kennedy’s assassination launched a frantic search to find his killers. It also launched a flurry of covert actions by Lyndon Johnson, Robert F. Kennedy, and other top officials to hide the fact that in November 1963, the United States was on the brink of invading Cuba as part of a JFK-authorized coup. The coup plan’s exposure could have led to a nuclear confrontation with Russia, but the cover-up prevented a full investigation into Kennedy’s assassination, a legacy of secrecy that would impact American politics and foreign policy for the next forty-five years. It also allowed two men who confessed their roles in JFK’s murder to be involved in the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King in 1968. Exclusive interviews and newly declassified files from the National Archives document in chilling detail how three mob bosses were able to prevent the truth from coming to light until now. “They’ve done a service by digging up the deepest, darkest, most disturbing archival evidence to support their Mob hit theory.” —Ron Rosenbaum, New York Times bestselling author of Explaining Hitler “A riveting take on the assassination itself and the devastating results of government secrets, this account proves the continuing relevancy and importance of seeking the truth behind one of the US’s most personal tragedies.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Working with thousands of previously unreleased documents and drawing on more than one thousand interviews, with many witnesses speaking out for the first time, Joan Mellen revisits the investigation of New Orleans district attorney Jim Garrison, the only public official to have indicted, in 1969, a suspect in President John F. Kennedy’s murder. Garrison began by exposing the contradictions in the Warren Report, which concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald was an unstable pro-Castro Marxist who acted alone in killing Kennedy. A Farewell to Justice reveals that Oswald, no Marxist, was in fact working with both the FBI and the CIA, as well as with US Customs, and that the attempts to sabotage Garrison’s investigation reached the highest levels of the US government. Garrison’s suspects included CIA-sponsored soldiers of fortune enlisted in assassination attempts against Fidel Castro, an anti-Castro Cuban asset, and a young runner for the conspirators, interviewed here for the first time by the author. Building upon Garrison’s effort, Mellen uncovers decisive new evidence and clearly establishes the intelligence agencies’ roles in both a president’s assassination and its cover-up. In this revised edition, to be published in time for the fiftieth anniversary of the president’s assassination, the author reveals new sources and recently uncovered documents confirming in greater detail just how involved the CIA was in the events of November 22, 1963. More than one hundred new pages add critical evidence and information into one of the most significant events in human history.

The Mystique of Conspiracy delves into the mystery surrounding the JFK assassination. It focuses mainly on anti-Castro Cuban exiles and their relationship with the CIA, but it also offers an excellent framework to gauge the "plausibility" of any conspiracy theory. Unique to this work is the offer included at the back of the book to involve the reader in an online exchange with the author. The author, an online Professor of criminal justice at the University of Phoenix, will guide the reader/student into formulating his or her own credible approach to solving the nagging mystery behind the JFK assassination (or any conspiracy theory they are interested in). Also compelling is the Foreword and personal letters included in the Appendix written to the author in 1978 by David Atlee Phillips, former CIA Western Hemisphere Division Chief. Mr. Phillips passed away in 1988, but many have tried to link him directly to a CIA plot to assassinate JFK utilizing anti-Castro Cuban exiles. A new name in the annals of the JFK assassination is CIA covert operative George Joannides. Mr. Joannides passed away in 1999, but his role in directing a group of anti-Castro Cuban exiles who had contact with the assassin in New Orleans several months before the assassination has never been made public up until now. As recent as 2005 the CIA went to court and blocked the release of any documents on George Joannides. David Atlee Phillips was Mr. Joannides' supervisor in the CIA. This book will be of interest to anyone interested in the "mystique" surrounding conspiracy theories, whether it is JFK, RFK, MLK, Princess Diana, 9/11 or Russian defector Alexander Litvinenko, killed in London by radioactive polonium 210. There is a common thread that runs through them all. The author will reveal what that is.
