JOHN CHUCKMAN REVIEW (COMMENT) ON EDWARD J. EPSTEIN'S ASSASSINATION DIARY



EDWARD J. EPSTEIN'S THE ASSASSINATION DIARY BY JOHN CHUCKMAN

I've not read this volume, but I read all of the books involved in making the diary.

Epstein is one of the more dishonest writers on the Kennedy assassination, using a terrible old technique of granting critics of the Warren Report some of their due in his first volume, thereby gaining credibility to forge ahead in his second and third volumes to assert the Warren Commission got it right in all the details that matter.

No one who has seriously studied the assassination - no one independent of certain interests and connections, that is - can possibly agree with Epstein' s so-called analysis..

His approach quite likely has something to do with the CIA connections we can infer from the publications for which he has written, all part of the CIA's "great Wurlitzer" whose keys are fingered to get "the message" out there, and the nature of what he has written.

Considering the books this diary served, it cannot possibly be worth reading.

But if you want to know how far an organization like the CIA goes "to get its story out there," then by all means read it.
