Legacy of Secrecy: The Long Shadow of the JFK Assassination
Robert Kennedy, National Security, the Mafia and the Assassination of Martin Luther King
UPDATED WITH DRAMATIC NEW REVELATIONS!
q The trade paperback has three new chapters, an expanded photo-document section, and updated text throughout, including the completed story of how three powerful Mafia bosses used John and Robert Kennedys top-secret plan of staging a coup against Fidel Castro to murder JFK. Documented from the National Archives for the first time is Watergate burglar Bernard Barker's decades-long work for the Mafia, even Barkers time aiding the CIA with the coup plan. Barker sold out the coup plan to his mob bosses helping to assassinate JFK, and forcing US officials previously involved with Barker to withhold key information from the Warren Commission. This cloud of secrecy surrounding JFKs assassination allowed two men who confessed to playing roles in JFK's murder to be free and aid in the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King in 1968. The trade paperback also contains important new information about the FBI informant who obtained the JFK assassination confession of godfather Carlos Marcello, which the Bureau kept secret for twenty years.
Explosive new material, based mainly on government documents from the National Archives.
Waldron and Hartmann offer convincing evidence . . . A riveting take on the assassination itself and the devastating results of government secrets, this account proves the continuing relevancy and importance of seeking the truth behind one of the USs most personal tragedies.
Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Theyve done a service by digging up the deepest, darkest, most disturbing archival evidence to support their Mob hit theory.
I believe Waldron's heavy-to-lift book is actually all but the last word on these troubling assassinations which have been so wildly speculated about since 1963 . . . Lamar Waldron, indefatigable public servant and author deserves his own Pulitzer Prize for his great work.
