The prose could use a bitpolish, and the editing or lack thereof leaves something to be desired, but Waldron and Thom Hartmann do a competent job of marshaling evidence for a convincing indictment of the conspirators behind the assassinations of John Kennedy, and to a lesser extent, of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy While it has long been a relatively simple if time consuming exercise to use the Warren Commission s own 26 volume report to disprove its contention a that there The prose could use a bitpolish, and the editing or lack thereof leaves something to be desired, but Waldron and Thom Hartmann do a competent job of marshaling evidence for a convincing indictment of the conspirators behind the assassinations of John Kennedy, and to a lesser extent, of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy While it has long been a relatively simple if time consuming exercise to use the Warren Commission s own 26 volume report to disprove its contention a that there was only one shooter, b that that shooter was Lee Oswald, and c that there was no link between organized crime and the plot against JFK, Legacy of Secrecy takes advantage of relatively recently dec
We will likely never know all the details re the assassination of JFK But asinformation comes to light, it is increasingly clear that the official version of events provided in the Warren Commission s report does not add up Legacy of Secrecy helps to shed light on why this is so, detailing the little known interaction of the CIA and the mob in efforts to kill Cuba s Castro in the early 1960s The book s authors contend that the mob took advantage of this interaction and assassinated JFK, We will likely never know all the details re the assassination of JFK But asinformation comes to light, it is increasingly clear that the official version of events provided in the Warren Commission s report does not add up Legacy of Secrecy helps to shed light on why this is so, detailing the little known interaction of the CIA and the mob in efforts to kill Cuba s Castro in the early 1960s The book s authors contend that the mob took advantage of this interaction and assassinated JFK, knowing that the government would decide against revealing its close ties to the mob and the possible involvement of a handful of CIA officials in the assassination Hence the coverup and the story that Oswald acted alone The authors also argue that some of the same people r
Amazing I love books that take a fair look at every avenue, and Waldron does with Legacy of Secrecy It is a massive read really time consuming but well worth it I love the citations, as the majority go back to the FBI Vault website This book really made me think about the events that took place, and it was eerie how well documented everyone s intertwined lives and surroundings were It paints everyone in a not so great light, so some may be annoyed with that, but hey, everything is backe Amazing I love

The author tries to cover far too much territory with this book While there may be some truth to the expression where there s smoke, there s fire , this book has so much smoke in it, it just leaves you in a general fog. This is better written andcohesive than the authors earlier book, ULTIMATE SACRIFICE Compulsively readable and makes a strong case, as SACRIFICE did, for the Mafia being responsible for the killing of JFK In LEGACY the authors go beyond the JFK killing to discuss the Mafia hit on RFK and what role Sirhan Sirhan really played in it They also have convinced me that James Earl Ray probably killed King, albeit for money, not out of racism Too bad, I sort of had a soft spot for the poor ba This is better written andcohesive than the authors earlier book, ULTIMATE SACRIFICE Compulsively readable and makes a strong case, as SACRIFICE did, for the Mafia being responsible for the killing of JFK In LEGACY the authors go beyond the JFK killing to discuss the Mafia hit on RFK and what role Sirhan Sirhan really played in it They also have convinced me that James Earl Ray probably killed King, albeit for money, not out of racism Too bad, I sort of had a soft spot for the poor bastard after reading William Pepper s AN ACT OF STATE and John Larry Ray s TRUTH AT LAST, but as Waldron and Hartmann point out, as Ray s attorney Pepper is not the most objective source Ray s brother John Larry isn t either The authors also document the involvement of Georgia racist Joseph Milteer, aided by Mafioso Carlos Marcello, in MLK s assassination Finally, they discuss Johnson s switch from focusing on Cuba to
Lamar Waldron s Legacy of Secrecy, is a very long, while sometimes dull book It ultimately provides one of the most logical theories to the saddening assassination of U.S President John F Kennedy The theory is that Kennedy was assassinated by the mob, because they found out Kennedy was on the verge of invading Cuba again, which would have cut their drug supply lines The novel of 600 plus pages examines many theories and states how they re invalid The diction demonstrated by Waldron i
Although this book is very large and detailed can t read it with the TV on , it s worth learning the new information that has come out on the JFK, RFK, and MLK assassinations The authors have taken great pains to document all of their information sources, some of which have never been released until this book Americans have been duped by the legacy of secrecy that has been pervasive and still continues in our government A must read if you want to know what really happened and how all thr Although this book is very large and detailed can t read it with the TV on , it s worth learning the new information that has come out on the JFK, RFK, and MLK assassinations The authors have taken great pains to document all of their information sources, some of which have never been released until this book Americans have been duped by the legacy of secrecy that has been pervasive and still continues in our government A must read if you want to know what really happened and how all three assas
This book continues with the cover up of JFK s murder It also tells about the murders of RFK and MLK and how many of the same people were connected to all 3 murders Some of those people were also connected to Watergate and Iran Contra affair Since the knowledge of Cuban coup
This is a very, very long and detailed book I have decided to put this on hold and read his new one THE HIDDEN HISTORY that has just come out which is probably better suited for me and most people that aren t and don t aspire to be JFK schola
