Storyline

Jim Marrs, author of the international best selling book JFK book of all time, "Crossfire: The Plot That Killed Kennedy" takes you deep into the conspiracy of John F. Kennedy's untimely death with visual and factual information that rules out the lone assassination theory. Marrs' work was the basis for the hugely successful Oliver Stone film "JFK." Fifty years after the event that rocked the nation and shook the world, Marrs reveals the facts behind the most audacious cover-up of our time, how it was planned, who executed the conspiracy, who benefited from it, and ultimately why this extremely well-orchestrated assassination could be so cleverly concealed. This extensively researched film includes never before seen maps, photos, newspaper articles, government documents and other evidence proving the Warren Commission's report was a cover-up and a smoke screen for the true conspiracy. Learn why Lee Harvey Oswald could not have been a lone gunman, and that multiple shots were fired that...

Read The Book - This Documentary Only Touches The Surface
10 July 2018 | by DKosty123See all my reviews

When I saw the author of this book had made this documentary, I was interested in it. After watching it, I highly think reading the book gives one a much better view of the plot to kill JFK. This is a one man show plus some very interesting pictures which were only released publiclly the last few years. This along with the late Jim Garrison's "On The Trail of The Assassins" was used for Oliver Stone's film "JFK".

Here we get into the facts and the fact that "Case Closed" by Gerald Posner is a poorly done case closing of the JFK file. Posner's entire fictional novel is based upon the conclusions drawn by the Warren Comission, never addressing facts about the event that they ignored. The Comissions Conlclusions were based upon an effort by the Government to ignore the facts and get a politically correct conclusion to this case. So while Case Closed is PC, it is as flawed as the politics of the conclusion. We are presently getting a lesson in the flaws of politics not reporting facts. The whole reason to seal JFK's records is that there was a lot to hide from the American Public. That is why some of these records are still sealed today.

The book Crossfire has a ton of back ground material from World War 2 about the people involved in covering up this murder. For example, Richard Nixon's ties with the mob during the War. Earl Warren, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court who headed the comission was put up for that office by Richard Nixon who feared Warren politically as he was the Republican front runner for President in 1952 before Ike Eisenhower declared he was going to run as a Republican (Ike was courted by both parties to run that year).

The book covers backgound on Cuba, including Nixons connections, along with Nixons connections with the FBI and CIA. Once I read Crossfire, I realized he was the most connected person who could have headed a conspiracy to kill JFK. LBJ has been brought up in recent times, and he had some of these connections, though Johnson's ties with the mob are not as clear.

Marrs original book brings up so much background that making a film out of all of it would be impossible. This documentary only covers the photos and direct evidence that brings into question the original conclusion of the Warren Commission. That is plenty of material but in order to get the full idea of all the players and the real Crossfire, the novel has so much more than a film can cover. Marrs one man show here is a teaser, the book is the main event.
