Poster for "Four Died Trying".

November 22, 2023 marked the 60th anniversary of the assassination of President John F Kennedy. As a serious student of the JFK assassination for 30 plus years, I have long been certain that the case has been solved. There is no confusion or room for doubt. Yet because the assassination was orchestrated by the National Security State/ CIA, there has been a massive and continuing disinformation campaign designed to keep the public in a state of confusion and uncertainty. The efforts to conceal the truth at the 50th anniversary were ubiquitous, but ten years later the effort has been muted, allowing dissenting voices to be heard in way Americans have never experienced.

Original critic of the Warren Commission, Vince Salandria told Gaeton Fonzi: "I'm afraid we were misled. All the critics, myself included, were misled very early. I see that now. We spent too much time and effort microanalyzing the details of the assassination when all the time it was obvious, it was blatantly obvious that it was a conspiracy. Don't you think that the men who killed Kennedy had the means to do it in the most sophisticated and subtle way? They chose not to. Instead, they picked the shooting gallery that was Dealey Plaza and did it in the most barbarous and openly arrogant manner. The cover story was transparent and designed not to hold, to fall apart at the slightest scrutiny. The forces that killed Kennedy wanted the message clear: 'We are in control and no one - not the President, nor Congress, nor any elected official - no one can do anything about it. It was a message to the people that their Government was powerless”.

This article points to several examples of why the disinformation campaign seems to be withering on the vine, beginning with Paul Landis.

Ex-secret service agent Paul Landis wrote a book alleging that he found the magic bullet in the seat of the Presidential limousine, which if true eliminates the single bullet theory and forces the conclusion of conspiracy. After 60 years of silence on the part of Landis, one wonders why he is speaking now? Three mainstream publications pursed the story, not with disdain or an effort to discredit, but with a seriousness that Kennedy researchers have rarely experienced. Whether Landis's version is true or not, the single bullet theory has been in tatters since it's creation, but particularly after the AARB forced release of documents in the 1990's. The nations paper of record, the New York Times, has attacked any information challenging the Warren Commission conclusions for 60 years, but they reported on Landis's allegations with seriousness. Vanity Fair, NBC news, and BBC all took the allegation offered with a degree of accuracy and fairness seldom seen in the past.

There are two new documentaries on the assassination, as well as the highest rated Apple podcast in the admittedly short history of podcasts.

In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's tragic assassination, “Who Killed JFK” by Soledad O'Brein and Rob Reiner tell the history of America's greatest murder mystery. Six of the eight episodes are currently available.

Paramount Plus released “JFK: What The Doctors Saw” on November 14th. This documentary will center on the testimonies of seven doctors who were in the Parkland Hospital Emergency Room on Nov. 22, 1963, when President John F. Kennedy was rushed to the local Dallas facility after being shot.

As the doctors reunite to share vivid memories of what they did and saw that day in Trauma Room 1, the new documentary will share never-before-seen footage and reveal startling observations about JFK’s wounds, challenging the narratives around the president’s assassination and how many people were involved with death.

Four Died Trying is a feature documentary series that explores the extraordinary lives and calamitous deaths of President John F. Kennedy, Senator Robert Kennedy, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Malcolm X. For this, you can watch the trailer, and then a planned 20 episode series.

There have been excellent podcasts on Black Op radio, including show 1173 which is a review of the new book, “Chokeholds”, and 1178 interview with the creators of Four Died Trying. Similarly there is great information coming out of JFKFacts via substack. (Jefferson Morley), including recent discoveries such as the story of the CIA Man Who Read Oswald’s Mail,

Dr. Cyrel Wecht, chief forensic pathologist at Duquesne University hosted a Coalition Against Political Assassinations conference in Pittsburgh , as he did at the 50th. I missed this and the videos are not yet available, but the word on the street is it was awesome, and the presenters were first rate. In addition, JFK Lancer held it's conference in Dallas.

Americans are accustomed to the government lying, and as a result the population does not know what to think. Some of the lies, such as the NYT's efforts to convince us that Iraq had WMD's, are understood by the vast majority of the population. Others are less obvious but still result in wide skepticism, such as the alleged suicides of the DC Madam (Deborah Jeane Palfrey ) Jeffery Epstein., and Gary Webb. According to Zogby polling, 45% of American's questioned the official story of 9/11 in 2004, a number that no doubt increases over time. Other controversies cause American's cognitive dissonance, including the attack on the Branch Davidians in WACO, the Oklahoma City bombing, the October Surprise in the Reagan Carter presidential election, the 2004 Stolen Election, Watergate, the BCCI scandal, and the Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, just to name a few. Of course, the assassination of President Kennedy was followed with assassinations of the other three leading voices for peace, his brother Robert Kennedy, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King.

The population of the world should be hopeful that the trend to truthfully report on these recent history changing events will continue.
