In "a stunning mix of political thriller and meticulous scholarship", Jim Douglass presents a persuasive account of why President John F. Kennedy was assassinated and why the unmasking of this truth remains crucial to the future of our country and the world. Jim Douglass is a scholar, activist, and author of "Resistance and Contemplation", and "Lightning East to West: Jesus, Gandhi, and the Nuclear Age". He, along with his wife Shelley Douglass, won the Pacem in Terris award of the Catholic Diocese of Davenport, Iowa in 1997. The couple founded the Ground Zero Center for Nonviolent Action in Washington state, with the aim of stopping the Trident missile program. They later moved to Birmingham, Alabama to track the movement of nuclear warheads and fuel being sent to the Trident base in Georgia. Currently, they run Mary's House, a home for families with members in long-term treatment at Birminham hospitals.

This should be a good insight into the mad minds of the military oil industrial complex men whom run the show from behind the scenes. Clearly one not to be missed for the conspiracy crowd.
