i don't know how STAR GLADIATOR finagled two comments....the cover foto on this one is misleading, leading those who are more or less in the know, to pass this one by. and that is a shame, as there is much new information here, plus much old information , brought up to date, or put into a new light. i am enjoying this one at home; was able to glean these small tidbits, there'll be more to follow: " Castro had little reason, except for the simplistic ' revenge' notion, to plot the death of a president who was rapidly working to ease U.S.-Cuba tensions." "Although CIA 'had no indication Ruby and Oswald ever knew each other, were associated, or might have been connected in any manner,' They had plenty of indication that Mr. Ruby wasn't as simple a fellow as the Commission wanted us to believe." " According to ex-CIA agent Philip Agee's book, INSIDE THE COMPANY, the Israeli Histadrut is regularly used in CIA ' labor operations for specialized training within the Social-Democratic Movement.' " "FBI admitted Ruby was an informant for them." " ' DeMohrenscildt said that President Kennedy was hated by the Dallas elite, and he felt it was very likely that reactionary elements had organized a plot to get rid of him. In his two days of testimony before the Warren Commission he was never questioned about this verbal statement he made in Haiti, and which was then preserved in CIA files." " 'David Atlee Phillips, standing under a road sign, stating, ' C I A N E X T R I G H T.' 'Autopsy doctors JThornton Boswell, JamesJHumes, PierreAFinck.' " "For THE ROBERT KENNEDY ASSASSINATION, Melanson broke considerable new ground in uncovering how Sirhan may have been hypnotically 'programmed' to shoot on that June 1968 night after RFK won the California primary." "I think King's death was sealed not in the fight for integration but in his taking on the Vietnam War. To this day, I'm amazed to talk to intelligence officers and find, when they open up about their fears and perceptions ( talking about the Kennedys and King) it's like George Bush talking about Saddam Hussein." " ' John F. Kennedy was murdered in a coup d'├ętat in which a small disloyal clique of government employees had determined that he was not going to carry out the foreign policy toward the Carribbean that they wanted. So he had to die.' " " ' The people around Eisenhower created one government that we can look at, touch, vote for and against---and another that we can't even ask about.' "

OMG! I have nothing personal against Dick Russell, but simply put, some subjects are beyond some minds, either a bit too sophisticated, or requiring an ounce of organizational skills, et cetera. Russell does on occasion uncover some important stuff, but he is simply too thickheaded to understand this. He is supposed to have interviewed Eugene B. Dinkin, but never expresses the amount of mental limitation Dinkin suffered from, nor ties it into those violent electro-shock treatments he received from an MK ULTRA team at Walter Reed.
In other words, Russell is all over the landscape, never capable of connecting even the most obvious dots. This dude is simply quite limited in the mental department.
There were NO Cubans involved with the JFK assassination; nor any space aliens either! Russell falls for almost every piece of CIA disinformation to come forth! And Oswald had nothing to do with it - - there was NO evidence connecting him to it.

This is the final book on the JFK assassination which I haven't yet read - - so I cannot comment on, but I can comment on the Thomas Mallon quote by commenter, rocknrollphilip: Mallon is the nephew of Thomas Mallon who worked with Prescott Bush at Brown Brothers Harriman. Top depositors at that private wealth firm, Harriman family and Rockefeller family. Bush family's fortune began at Buckeye Ball Bearings in Ohio. Owner of Buckeye: Rockefeller family. Warren Commission's two top guys: Allen Dulles and John McCloy. These two derived most of their money as adults by working for the Rockefeller family and its companies. The Thomas Mallon from the quote wrote a book on Ruth Paine, yet somehow he can tell us nothing of her family background [sister and brother-in-law both career CIA, Ruth related to Allen Dulles' brother, John Foster Dulles, through his wife, Jane or Janet Avery, which also makes her a relative to . . . .the Rockefeller family!], nor the family background of husband, Michael Paine [related to Henry Cabot Lodge on the Cabot side, the ambassador to Vietnam about to be fired by President Kennedy but his assassination takes place].

Listening to the theories, one notices the tendency of their proponents to believe that the farther away they get from the assassination itself, the closer they will be to it's origin. As in "The X-Files", "the truth is out there," beyond where anyone has yet looked.
