Another waste of time
24 July 2016 | by bhowarth51-1See all my reviews

Once again the uninformed are treated to another re-hash of the Warren Commission coupled with snippets of Reclaiming History by the late Vince Bugliosi.

Throughout the 2 hour narrative by Kevin Spacey,knowledgeable assassination researchers noticed how convenient the work omitted or glossed over some very relevant issues that tend to question the so- called official version.

Examples include:

(1) The so-called TBD roll-call in which Oswald was supposedly the only missing employee- a complete falsehood.

(2) The explanation by Clint Hill that the reason JFK's remains were taken from Parkland Hospital was because LBJ would leave Dallas with Jackie who wouldn't leave without her husband. The truth is that the Secret Service, in complete violation of Texas law, forcibly and illegal removed JFK's remains from the legal grasp of Dallas County thus neutering the evidence forever. The sham ' autopsy ' which later followed in Bethesda was also just barely mentioned in the film.

(3) A segment shows a uniformed Dallas PD Sgt. and Detective handling a wallet at the scene of the Tippet murder. Who's wallet was it ? An FBI agent on the same scene claimed it belonged to Oswald- yet the official WC fairy tale indicates that Oswald's wallet was removed from him in the DPD squad car en route to the jail after he was arrested in the Texas Theater.

It would nice if a network actually bothered to do some research and present some arguments to the novice JFK assassination student that probed a little and questioned the Warren Commission baloney.
