Lee Harvey Oswald was not the assassin of President Kennedy. He was set up. By a cabal of CIA employees, the Mafia and Cuban exiles, who killed Kennedy out of vengeance and in the hope of new invasion of Cuba. Almost fifty years after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas on November 22, 1963, the question whether Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin, or not, remains one of the most controversial topics in modern history. In "Killing Kennedy", Philip Coppens shows that Oswald was not the assassin the government claimed he was. Tracing all the evidence ? the rifle, prints, bullets, etc. ? he finds that the material that inculpated Oswald was not what was found on the scene of the crime. Indeed, the Dallas Police officers themselves, in testimony before the Warren Commission, said that they could not identify the objects as those recovered! There is even evidence ? a photograph ? that shows Oswald standing outside, watching the motorcade pass by! Coppens shows that the Warren Commission hid behind a legal technicality, so that breaches in the chain of possession of evidence did not need to be considered when the Commission drew its conclusions and made Oswald the lone assassin. But he goes far beyond this conclusion and shows that we can identify the real assassins and who hired them; how, months before the assassination, they began to set Oswald up as a patsy, depicting him as a communist. This trail of disinformation, carefully placed by disgruntled CIA employees and Cuban exiles, guaranteed that President Johnson would order a cover-up: Oswald as the lone assassin. The end result is half a century of lies, which are exposed in this book.
