Om Hidden History of the JFK Assassination
November 22, 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of the tragedy that has haunted America ever since. For the first time, this concise and compelling book pierces the veil of secrecy to fully document the small, tightly-held conspiracy that killed President John F. Kennedy. It explains why he was murdered, and how it was done in a way that forced many records to remain secret for almost fifty years.The Hidden History of JFKs Assassination draws on exclusive interviews with more than two dozen associates of John and Robert Kennedy, in addition to former FBI, Secret Service, military intelligence, and Congressional personnel, who provided critical first- hand information. The book also uses government filesincluding the detailed FBI confession of notorious Mafia godfather Carlos Marcelloto simply and clearly reveal exactly who killed JFK. Using information never published before, the book uses Marcellos own words to his closest associates to describe the plot. His confession is also backed up by a wealth of independent documentation. This book builds on the work of the last Congressional committee to investigate JFKs murder, which concluded that JFK was probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy, and that godfathers [Santo] Trafficante [and Carlos] Marcello had the motive, means, and opportunity to assassinate President Kennedy. However, it also draws on exclusive files and information not available to Congress, that have only emerged in recent years, to fully explain for the first time how Marcello and Trafficante committedand got away withthe crime of the 20th century.Some of the books revelations will be dramatized in the upcoming Warner Brothers film Legacy of Secrecy, produced by and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, which also stars Robert De Niro as Carlos Marcello.The Hidden History of JFKs Assassination is the definitive account of the crime and the secrecy which has surrounded it.
