"On November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was murdered in front of hundreds of onlookers. Everything was over in mere seconds, but the events of that day have been the subject of heated debate for five decades. The presidential commission tasked with finding the truth, headed by then-Chief Justice Earl Warren, published its findings the following year--Oswald had acted alone--but the report did little to quell conspiracy theorists. Many seized on what they saw as inconsistencies in the report and branded the whole investigation a cover-up. Warren himself calmly dismissed the criticism, assuring his fellow commission members that 'history will prove us right.' Now, in this eye-opening new account of the Commission and its findings, Howard P. Willens sets out to prove that Warren's advice was prescient. Willens, one of the few surviving staff members of the Warren Commission, supervised the investigation from the very beginning and has waited until now to silence the critics and well-intentioned armchair detectives. Drawn from Willens' own journals and extensive notes on the investigation--which have never before been published--History Will Prove Us Right tells the true and complete story, perhaps for the first time, of every aspect of the investigation into one of the century's most harrowing events from a uniquely first-person perspective." -- Provided by publisher

Junk book. Read Reclaiming Parkland by James DiEugenio and Breach of Trust by James McKnight instead.

Over the years, further so-called evidence appeared to come from Mrs. Paine's Magical Garage, although both the Dallas PD and Secret Service had searched it thoroughly, and hadn't found said items? [BTW, Ruth Paine's sister was a career CIA analyst.] Hmmm. . . the Warren Commission states that Lee Oswald was a poor student and truant in NYC, yet his NYPS records show him to be normally a straight-A student [with the occasional B grade] and was elected president of the eighth grade class! According to the Warren Commission, Lee Oswald sent away for a Mannlicher Carcano crappy rifle on the afternoon of March 13th, 1962, and the order was received by Klein's Sporting Goods that very next morning of March 14th, and Oswald's money order was deposited at the bank that very afternoon, less than 24 hours after it had been sent. Now that's SUPER POSTAL SERVICE!!! And when they mailed it back with the required 2162 postal form for mailing firearms, there was no record at the Dallas PO where Lee's PO box was? How very odd. Let's see now, the chief counsel of the Commission was Rankin, none other than J. Edgar Hoover's personal attorney for many years prior to the assassination!). My first two, of over one thousand, important questions to the traitor, author Willens: (1) Why was it that Chief Council Rankin would mention Lee Oswald's training at the Defense Language Institute at Monterey, CA., while in the Marines, which would contradict his having been a radar specialist or air traffic control specialist and trained at Keesler AFB, and it was never followed up on? And, (2) Why was the next obvious question never asked of Dallas Mayor Earl Cabell [brother of fired CIA guy, Gen. Cabell], after Mayor Cabell admits to knowing Jack Ruby closely for quite a few years?) Read the darn report, all you real tinfoilers who work for, and support, the fraudulent status quo! [FYI: The two heads of the commission, Allen Dulles and John McCloy were long financially involved with the Rockefeller family. Both Allen and his brother, John Foster, represented that family through their law practises (and John Foster had married into the Rockefeller-Morgan family, while McCloy would later go on to be chairman of Rockefeller's bank, the Chase Manhattan Bank.]
