Lee Harvey Oswald's
Cold War: Why The
Kennedy Assassination
Should be Re-Investigated

by Greg Parker

Lee Harvey Oswald's life was real, in a real world on the brink. And in that real world were studies, policies, programs and overt and covert operations that would either drag it closer to the brink, or pull it back. Lee Harvey Oswald's Cold War examines his milieu and hints at areas for future inquiries.

Reclaiming Parkland

Reclaiming Parkland describes Tom Hanks's failed attempt to adapt Vincent Bugliosi's massive book Reclaiming History into a mini-series. It also exposes the origins of that book in a dubious mock trial. Included is a withering critique of Bugliosi's inflated book. The author examines an early draft of the film Parkland, the CIA's influence in Hollywood today, Hanks' closeness to Washington, and the actor's spurious claim of being a historian. Also included is the author's unsuccessful attempt to stop Leonardo DiCaprio from making a film out of Legacy of Secrecy.

Sirhan Papers Blocked
Auction of Sirhan papers blocked The scheduled auction of a handwritten account by Sirhan Sirhan of his actions before the 1968 assassination of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy was blocked Tuesday by the convicted killer's attorney. Lawyer William Pepper said the purported description of Sirhan's visit to the Ambassador Hotel where Kennedy was gunned down may be "significant evidence" in an ongoing effort to win parole for the Pleasant Valley State Prison inmate, now 67. See pages here.

William F. Pepper discussed the RFK assassination in a recent CNN interview. Pepper now represents RFK's alleged assassin Sirhan Sirhan.

Two researchers say their analysis of a previously unknown audiotape may provide new evidence of a second gunman in the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy. Check here for details. A Los Angeles TV report on this has been posted to YouTube. The two researchers say further that RFK's real assassin may still be alive and living abroad. In 2008, the two held a news conference on their findings. Later, they broke the ice at CNN.

The Role of the Media

The media's track record in the JFK case is abysmal, and this section is one of the most important areas on this site.

abc logoABC-TV
cbs logoCBS-TV
nbc logoNBC-TV

The articles you will find via the above links are a comprehensive dissection of the media and its shameful coverage of the political assassinations of the 1960s. If you are a newcomer to these cases, we strongly recommend you begin to explore the site at this area. You will quickly understand why 1) the mainstream media has a significant credibility problem, and 2) why the press sees these cases one way and the public generally sees them another.
