The acclaimed book Oliver Stone called the best account I have read of this tragedy and its significance, JFK and the Unspeakable details not just how the conspiracy to assassinate President John F. Kennedy was carried out, but WHY it was doneand why it still matters today. At the height of the Cold War, JFK risked committing the greatest crime in human history: starting a nuclear war. Horrified by the specter of nuclear annihilation, Kennedy gradually turned away from his long-held Cold Warrior beliefs and toward a policy of lasting peace. But to the military and intelligence agencies in the United States, who were committed to winning the Cold War at any cost, Kennedys change of heart was a direct threat to their power and influence. Once these dark Unspeakable forces recognized that Kennedys interests were in direct opposition to their own, they tagged him as a dangerous traitor, plotted his assassination, and orchestrated the subsequent cover-up. Douglass takes readers into the Oval Office during the tense days of the Cuban Missile Crisis, along on the strange journey of Lee Harvey Oswald and his shadowy handlers, and to the winding road in Dallas where an ambush awaited the Presidents motorcade. As Douglass convincingly documents, at every step along the way these forces of the Unspeakable were present, moving people like pawns on a chessboard to promote a dangerous and deadly agenda. JFK and the Unspeakable shot up to the top of the bestseller charts when Oliver Stone first brought it to the worlds attention on Bill Mahers show. Since then, it has been lauded by Mark Lane (author of Rush to Judgment, who calls it an exciting work with the drama of a first-rate thriller), John Perkins (author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, who proclaims it is arguably the most important book yet written about an American president), and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., who calls it a very well-documented and convincing portraitI urge all Americans to read this book and come to their own conclusions.

  1. Äntligen: Vad hände i Dallas 1963?
    Claudius, 31 augusti 2014

    Detta är den bok som världen har väntat på sedan november 1963. James Douglass förklarar hela historien.

    Du som i likhet med mig har undrat i många år "Vad var det egentligen som hände? Och hur gick det till?" får här svaren.

    Författaren är grundlig och täcker vad jag förstår det mesta (av det seriösa) som har skrivits i ärendet tidigare.

    En viktig sak som författaren lyfter fram är presidentens situation när han tillträdde. Som ung, med svåra krigserfarenheter, ko... Läs hela recensionen

A remarkable story that changed the way I view the world.JAMES BRADLEY, author of Flags of Our Fathers Arguably the most important book yet written about a U.S. president Should be required reading for all high school and college students, and anyone who is a registered voter!JOHN PERKINS, author of Confessions of an Economic Hitman The best account I have read of this tragedy and its significance But dont take my word for it. Read this extraordinary book and reach your own conclusions. OLIVER STONE, director "Jim Douglass has unraveled the story of President Kennedys astonishing and little-known turn toward peace, and the reasons why members of his own government felt he must be eliminated. This disturbing, enlightening, and ultimately inspiring book should be read by all Americans. It has the power to change our lives and to set us free."MARTIN SHEEN JFK and the Unspeakable is an exceptional achievement. Douglass has made the strongest case so far in the JFK assassination literature as to the Who and the Why of Dallas.GERALD McNIGHT, author of Beach of Trust: How the Warren Commission Failed the Nation and Why Once in a great while a book comes along that both records history and makes it. An exciting work with the drama of a first-rate thriller. MARK LANE, author of Rush to Judgment Right now, I ask all of youplease please, read JFK and the Unspeakable! I cried all night reading it, and didnt sleep a wink. It is a book that could make us stand up and change the world, right now. Maybe we can save the world before it blows up. Really. -- Yoko Ono "In JFK and the Unspeakable Jim Douglass has distilled all the best available research into a very well-documented and convincing portrait of President Kennedy's transforming turn to peace, at the cost of his life. Personally, it has made a very big impact on me. After reading it in Dallas, I was moved for the first time to visit Dealey Plaza. I urge all Americans to read this book and come to their own conclusions about why he died and why -- after fifty years -- it still matters. -- Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
