History is interesting and entertaining. It can
also be our greatest teacher, if the truth about it is available to us.
From the mistakes and accomplishments of the past, we can learn lessons applicable to our
own lives, if we want to learn, and not merely see the world as we want
to see it? November 22, 2013 - the 50th anniversary of the assassination of
President John F. Kennedy. There is much about that tragic event worth remembering, but
perhaps the most significant fact, because it colors everything else, is that nine months
after the assassination a panel of trusted and respected government leaders headed by
Chief Justice Earl Warren, announced that they had conducted a full and complete
investigation of all of the facts and circumstances, and found upon the basis of that
investigation that it was all very simple: the suspect who had been caught, Lee
Harvey Oswald, had acted alone in killing the President. Documents uncovered years later
unequivocally establish that what the Warren Commission said was not
the truth. In fact, before they even started to investigate,
they decided that something else was more important than the law, or the truth.
Over the succeeding years, this important event
in American history has become more folklore and fiction than fact. Finally, there are
some Real Answers, direct from Gary
Cornwell, the Deputy Chief Counsel for the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee
on Assassinations. In Real Answers,
Cornwell separates history from the suspicions, speculations, rumors, guesses and wild
accusations that have so long been "the Kennedy case," leaving you with the
profoundly troubling truth.
In Real Answers you will learn that . . .
- Our government originally told us "No
conspiracy; Case Closed," but later admitted that was a lie.
- Lee Harvey Oswald was not a mere patsy, but there is more . . .
- Scientific evidence reflects that the Warren
Commission wrongly rejected eye-witness testimony that a shot was fired from the grassy
knoll by a second gunmen.
- Castro had a clear motive for revenge, and you
will be able to judge for yourself the veracity of his protestations of innocence after
you read Real Answers.
- The original Mysterious Deaths Theory was bogus, but that does not
mean there was nothing mysterious about the deaths.
- When The Umbrella Man was finally
located, he told a fascinating story about what he was doing as the motorcade passed by
him on November 22, 1963.
- Scientific evidence resolves many aspects of the
- Much of the Warren Commission's rationale for the conclusion that
Kennedy and Connally were hit by a "Single Bullet" was wrong, even though their
ultimate conclusion seems (probably) to have been correct.
- The Zapruder Film (recently
made available after all of these years for public purchase) has tremendous historical
value, but it has been more a source of illusion than illumination over the years.
- The most significant finding of the Select
Committee on Assassinations should still greatly concern us, even today.
- The film JFK, by Oliver Stone, had much truth in it, but was also irresponsibly
- The evidence does not reflect that the Warren Commission acted with
malevolent intent, but its conduct nevertheless constituted an abuse of the power that had
been entrusted to it.
- The Select Committee operated differently and reached quite different
conclusions than the Warren Commission -- and the reasons Why.
- And much more . . .

In the author's words: "The
Kennedy case is the greatest murder mystery of all time, but it is more than that. It is our
history, and from it we can learn timeless lessons about life, about the impact upon
our own thinking of often unfounded assumptions and biases, and about how our government
works -- both when it works as it should, and when it goes astray. I hope that reading Real
Answers will be as entertaining and enlightening for you as running the Kennedy
investigation was for me."
