second gunman points to the most feared scenario: a conspiracy. But despite many theories -- involving the Mafia, the Russians and the CIA -- no one has yet come up with a convincing explanation of Oswald's precise role in the President's murder. After 30 years of research, Matthew Smith has uncovered the second plot -- the plot in which Oswald's true role in the assassination is exposed -- and the unmasking of a second plot leads naturally to the first. In this extraordinary and important
The assassination of President John F. Kennedy on 22 November 1963 remains one of the greatest mysteries of the twentieth century. At the centre of the puzzle stands the enigmatic figure of Lee Harvey Oswald, who was himself killed by Jack Ruby only days after Kennedy's death.

"in view of Oswald's claim that he was a c.i.a. agent, it is to be expected that captain Will Fritz contacted c.i.a. headquarters at Langley Virginia. "Oswald was in much deeper trouble than he thought." "At that time area code 919 related to Raleigh, North Carolina, where there was a Naval Intelligence base. He was prevented from making contact with his Raleigh phone number by a Mrs. Swinney, who told him his number was not answering. He never did get through." "It was clear that Oswald had put 2 and 2 together soon after his arrest, for he had told reporters, 'I didn't kill anybody..I'm just a patsy.' There was no way the conspirators could let interrogation continue, and Oswald, most certainly could not be allowed to come to trial. It resolved to a question of how fast they could get to him to silence him, and it had to be before he was transferred to the county jail. Ruby was elected executioner. Though he had a crazy streak, Ruby would not have been brazen enough to do what he did, without being under enormous pressure." "Oswald spoke to Ruth Paine on Saturday the 23rd November,discussing with her his plans for obtaining legal representation." ..."He did not receive all the normal entitlements of making phone calls and consulting a lawyer while in the custody of the Dallas Police Department." this is the best book on the case I have read in years, this writer appears to be the epitome of logic. read it before any other, if you have even a scintilla of interest (and you should) in the murder of our young, dashing, heroic President.
