Dear JFK Murder Solved Forum Members and Readers:

I prefer to analyze, read, research, and study ideas, opinions, thoughts, and writings on Subject Matter's of
interest to me ranging from The Extreme Right to The Extreme Left, hopefully inspiring and inviting erudite
responses that may improve and/or strengthen my own curiosities, efforts, and understanding of the panoramic
view that I am developing.

We live in the Post Charlie Chan, Sherlock Holmes, Perry Mason, Detective Colombo, Ben Matlock, Criminal
Minds, CSI, Hollywood Movie and T.V. Special generation, etc.

Hence sometimes assembling the puzzle can be defined for some by an analysis, an argument, a book, some
facts, a movie, a perspective, a position, a stance, a view, a T.V. series or show, etc., THAT MUST LEAD TO
AN APPARENT CONCLUSION.

To use one of my many favorite Metaphor's, I truly believe that many believe that ALL OF THE PIECES TO THE JFK
PUZZLE ARE SPILLED ON THE TABLE IN PLAIN VIEW, AND MERELY NEED TO BE ASSEMBLED LIKE THE PICTURE OF THE
PUZZLE ON THE BOX.

With that in mind, along with all that I have written on the JFKMS Forum, I am Posting 3 successive Headlines
and supporting material about James W. Douglass' book, which many herald as "THE DEFINITIVE JFK WORK."
Thus far, I do not think that there is any JFK DEFINITIVE WORK. Opinions vary. (07.24.2017, BB).

JFK AND THE UNSPEAKABLE: WHY HE DIED AND WHY IT MATTERS:

BY JAMES W. DOUGLASS:

By OLIVER STONE:

The murder of President Kennedy was a seminal event for me and for millions of Americans. It changed the course of
history. It was a crushing blow to our country and to millions of people around the world. It put an abrupt end to a period
of a misunderstood idealism, akin to the spirit of 1989 when the Soviet bloc to began to thaw and 2008, when our new
American President was fairly elected.

Today, more than 45 years later, profound doubts persist about how President Kennedy was killed and why. My film JFK
was a metaphor for all those doubts, suspicions and unanswered questions. Now an extraordinary new book offers the
best account I have read of this tragedy and its significance. That book is James Douglass’s JFK and the Unspeakable:
Why He Died and Why It Matters. It is a book that deserves the attention of all Americans; it is one of those rare books
that, by helping us understand our history, has the power to change it.

The subtitle sums up Douglass’s purpose: Why He Died and Why it Matters. In his beautifully written and exhaustively
researched treatment, Douglass lays out the “motive” for Kennedy’s assassination. Simply, he traces a process of steady
conversion by Kennedy from his origins as a traditional Cold Warrior to his determination to pull the world back from the
edge of destruction.

Many of these steps are well known, such as Kennedy’s disillusionment with the CIA after the disastrous Bay of Pigs
Invasion, and his refusal to follow the reckless recommendations of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in resolving the Cuban Missile
Crisis. (This in itself was truly JFK’s shining moment in the sun. It is likely that any other president from LBJ on would have
followed the path to a general nuclear war.) Then there was the Test Ban Treaty and JFK’s remarkable American University
Speech where he spoke with empathy and compassion about the Soviet people, recognizing our common humanity, the
fact that we all “inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children’s futures. And we are all
mortal.”

But many of his steps remain unfamiliar: Kennedy’s back-channel dialogue with Khrushchev and their shared pursuit of
common ground; his secret opening to dialogue with Fidel Castro (ongoing the very week of his assassination); and his
determination to pull out of Vietnam after his probable re-election in 1964.

All of these steps caused him to be regarded as a virtual traitor by elements of the military-intelligence community. These
were the forces that planned and carried out his assassination. Kennedy himself said, in 1962, after he read Seven Days
in May, which is about a military coup in the United States, that if he had another Bay of Pigs, the same thing could happen
to him. Well, he did have another “Bay of Pigs”; he had several. And I think Kennedy prophesied his own death with those
words.

Why does it matter? The death of JFK remains a critical turning point in our history. Those who caused his death were
targeting not just a man but a vision — a vision of peace. There is no calculating the consequences of his death for this
country and for the world. Those consequences endure. To a large extent, the fate of our country and the future of the
planet continue to be controlled by the shadowy forces of what Douglass calls “the Unspeakable.” Only by unmasking
these forces and confronting the truth about our history can we restore the promise of democracy and lay claim to
Kennedy’s vision of peace.

But don’t take my word for it. Read this extraordinary book and reach your own conclusions.

As always, I strongly recommend that you first read, research, and study material completely
yourself about a Subject Matter, and then formulate your own Opinions and Theories.

Any additional analyses, interviews, investigations, readings, research, studies, thoughts,
or writings on any aspect of this Subject Matter ?

Bear in mind that we are trying to attract and educate a Whole New Generation of JFK
Researchers who may not be as well versed as you.

Respectfully,
BB.

Thanks, Bruce, you have an insatiable curiosity and research abilities. With regard to Oliver Stone, it is really a shame that he didn't assemble a less entertaining and more scholarly film. Every competent researcher follows the best original sources and relies on honest writers to do their best work. James Files said he didn't like the guy. Why? He strikes me as another jaded Hollywood publicity whore who lives in the limelight rather than among Americans who have suffered through travails in family, work, and for real American causes, not fake ones.
