The latest JFK conspiracy theory is sure to stir things up in the case, when a new book comes out.
Phillip Shenon, a former New York Times reporter and author of The Commission, an acclaimed book about the 9/11 Commission Report, is promising a new book that claims that “powerful” people had influenced the Warren Commission’s investigation and final conclusion that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in killing President John F. Kennedy.
Shenon’s credentials are a good reason to be excited about his book, which is coming out on October 22 and it is expected to be a more detailed study of the who and the why of the Warren Commission.
The publisher Little, Brown’s plot line in this new JFK conspiracy theory book reads,
Drawn from years of research and interviews with “primary and insider sources”, the book looks at the work of the Warren Commission, which sought to determine whether killer Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone, and is said to answer “many of the questions that have haunted a nation for 50 years, in spite of the powerful individuals who did their utmost to prevent the discovery of what really happened.
JFK books are almost as popular as Lincoln books with the latest one written by Mimi Alford, a White House intern who slept with JFK. That book, published last year, was called Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F. Kennedy and Its Aftermath.
The public’s fascination with the assassination of the 35th President of the United States continues as the case has so many holes that have not been closed since the event took place on Nov. 22, 1963 in Dallas, Texas.
Lee Harvey Oswald, who was himself shot, was charged with the murder, but the fact that he was not properly interrogated and some of the evidence was less than sanitized has led to the ongoing questions.
Shenon’s book will be published shortly before the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy’s assassination.
