JFK assassination 101 (web)
29 January 2014 | by (PariS) – See all my reviews

With all those books and movies, this tragedy appears like taking a true course in Law, politics, criminal investigation. It's like a maze, every fact, every one can be contradicted. This documentary is interesting as it's an excellent visual companion to the book written by the man having engaged the only one legal action about this case!

What are my conclusions ? The attorney says that the company did it. If it wasn't true, why all his moles in his office and the libels attack against him ? Could those tactics come from the usual culprits : LHO ? Organized crime ? Soviet Block ? The second interesting fact was Shaw's involvement : it's true that it's a bit loose to tie him clearly with conspiracy of murder on the only basis he knew LHO. But it's also clear that he knew LHO and as he was a company man, Garrison is right that he had for mission to give LHO a communist look. It's exactly what happened to LHO when leaving New Orleans and going to Mexico.

What's totally revealing here (and funny) is that in Mexico, the company man in charge of this re-looking was « Maurice Bishop » (read Gaeton Fonzi's investigation), the close to be mastermind behind the coup and the really first interview in the documentary ! Having this man introduced the documentary may be not so coincidental so?
