Recommendation: JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters by James W. Douglass

Those of you who are interested in JFK might wish to check out this brief review by Dennis Hamm, a cousin who is a professor at Creighton University, of James Douglass’s new book JFK and the Unspeakable.

This is not just your run-of-the-mill JFK conspiracy book.  Instead, Douglass takes an entirely different tack by suggesting that the tragic events of November 22, 1963 were brought on by a little-known shift in JFK’s views on foreign policy during the last few months of his life.  Douglass brings out evidence to document that, in fact, JFK went from being a supporter of the Cold War to being strongly in favor of “complete and total disarmament”.  This shift angered several of JFK’s top military advisors; apparently some were so angry that they actually wanted him dead.

I won’t say any more about the book; Dennis Hamm has already written about it and he can tell you anything you want to know about it.  Read the review, and then get the book if you are interested.
