This book is the definitive book on the JFK assassination. It should be a must read for every high school student and everyone else as well. This book will wake you up to the reality of what Abraham Lincoln warned us about 100 years before the Kennedy election.

A frightening history lesson
JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters by James Douglass.
Not only is this volume a masterwork of thorough research, it is a meaningful blend of Christian pacifist theology and 20th century history. For Americans, and the rest of the world threatened by U.S. military hegemony, it could be the most important book in English of the last 50 years. Douglass aligns the concerns of theologian Thomas Merton with President Kennedy?s intentions in 1963 to pull U.S. troops out of Vietnam. Researchers today have an advantage over investigative reporters of the 60s and 70s, like Mark Lane, thanks to the declassification in the 1990s of reams of revealing assassination documents. Douglass takes full advantage of this heightened perspective and blows away the disinformation chaff to reveal the bones of the conspiracy we always knew was somewhere under there. Combining an extensive current bibliography with his own personal interviews with November 22 witnesses and their surviving spouses, Douglass assembles key pieces of the conspiracy jigsaw puzzle until a clear picture emerges. Kennedy was killed, marked for death by his own government, because he sought a path toward peace in the world. Given Douglass? moral imperative to write this book, one would expect, if not a final chapter, at least an epilogue pointing out the parallels with today?s tragic war in the Middle East and the fact that the military/industrial complex President Eisenhower warned us about has taken control of the government and is now running the country for its own profit. The omission of such a summary is conspicuous ? and ominous. The history lesson in JFK and the Unspeakable is a clear warning to all Americans; a frightening, must-read book.
