They Killed Our President: 63 Reasons to Believe there was a Conspiracy to Assassinate JFK by Jesse Ventura

Almost made it through this book.  Got a little exhausted with Jesse's non-linear rants.  Although he claimed to be making 63 points, I think that it was more like 187 or something.

But the content is very very good.  A lot to take away, and perhaps this video stuck out as one of the most significant points;  www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSWSgcuYqDo

This is a video of Jesse Venture, an Expert Marksman, attempting to shoot using the gun that Lee Harvey Oswald (allegedly) used to kill JFK.  Some critical points that Ventura makes; Oswald was only a Marksman, so Ventura is a better shot.  Additionally, Ventura is not even able to shoot three times in under 8 seconds using this gun, the amount of time in which Oswald allegedly made his infamous "three shots".  The final shot that Oswald made, allegedly, had perfect aim; this is the final critical shot that killed JFK (according to the official explanation).

The points made by this video, then, are so much at the crux of how the Oswald lone-gunman explanation is pure fantasy; if an Expert Marksman could not even make the third shot in under 8 seconds (let alone take the time to aim at a target that is moving away from him, through trees), then how could Oswald have done it, and with perfect aim?

And this point been made over and over again, I suppose, but it does bear repeating.  Who's really listening, though?  Ah geez, I wish that more people could wake up to these basic facts and to what's going on in our country!

Well this review has turned more into a rant, but anyway, Ventura's book is good.  It includes a lot of facts about JFK.  A more excellent book on the subject is "JFK and the Unspeakable", which perhaps I'll review on another occasion.

Signing off.
