Rides the pines to much.
2 May 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

What a disappointment this DVD was. It was like dancing with a girl who has two left feet, ya never know which direction she wants to go. One minute we have retired KGB officers talking of a conspiracy the next we have laser tag in the park 'proving' that there was only 3 shots all from the TSBD. You get a 6 second clip from Mikhail Gorbachov that seems interesting but that is all you get. They drag out Robert Gordon like he is a messiah on the case and to counteract his approach they bring out CIA backed Gerald Posner. One makes a claim that all of the people who knew LHO say he admired JFK and was intelligent while the other (Posner) claims LHO was a killer from day one and goes as far as to blame the fact he comes from a single parent family for part of his problem. However no attempts were made to prove either side. There was brief mention of a possible Vietnamese and Corsican connection but no attempt was made to explore it and there was little talk about the relationship between Castro and Russia at the time and how this may have come into play. No KGB or American explanation of how LHO got to Russia so secretly and back to America with a Rusian born wife. No talk of Oswalds US radar opertaion and under ground connections while in Japan and not one mention of why he wasn't arrest or debreifed when he returned back to America after defecting and threatening to expose military secrets. There was one demonstration of how a shot from the back could have caused the injuries but no counter demonstrations what a shot from the front would have done or the possibility of a missed shot. If they really wanted to balance out this show to keep all sides happy (and that is just what they tried to do) why not make mention of the Systems Failure Analysis study for the TV show 'The trial of Lee Harvey Oswald." Although Mr. Posner makes claims to this study and stands by the fact that they showed shots coming only from the 6th floor the F.A people actually sued Posner for these claims and they say their studies show a much higher probability for a grassy knoll head-shot. The HSCA, a committee rarely remembered, claimed acoustically that there was there was a 4th shot from the front. Many have tried to ridicule that point but as recently as 2002 there was a study that showed a 98% chance of a grassy knoll shot. But instead of covering any of this in detail Rodger Moore and this DVD decided to ride the pine and try and keep both conspiracy lovers and government supporters happy. The fact they used the KGB in th title came across, in the end, as a catch to make one want to buy this DVD. it really was a mixed up set of facts, semi-facts and Posner dreams. It ever really showed how the KGB came to the conclusion of a conspiracy and in fact it went out of it's way to show how the KGB proved it wasn't.
