Let me first comment on the 1 star review from Sunnyreader. First of all it is incorrect that Files is not in any files. Just google for “Evidence for James Files continues to grow”.
Secondly, Sunnyreader refers to Robert Groden as an authority on the JFK assassination. Robert Groden is a firm supporter of the confession of James Files. To see Robert’s comments on Files search Youtube for: robert groden james files
Thirdly, Sunnyreader rates the new books by Richard Belzer, Dead Wrong and Hitlist, with 5 stars:
“Fantastic book!, Run, do not walk, to get this book! I loved their last book “Dead Wrong”- this one is even better. Highly recommended.”
Richard Belzer is also a firm believer of James Files. In fact a large part of the JFK chapter in Dead Wrong is devoted to James Files. I quote from the book:
“Former FBI Special Agent Zack Shelton, whose excellent investigative summary, The Shelton Report, appears exclusively in our JFK chapter, summed up our work ethic best: “I don’t have any theories. All I have are the facts.”
No offense meant, Sunnyreader, but a little bit more study before writing a review, is to be recommended.
Isn’t it weird that the vast majority of Americans does not believe the Warren Report anymore, yet it remains the official government story on the JFK assassination? Does that rhyme with the principle of democracy where the people control their government? If you think about it, it is nothing less than contempt for the intellect of the American people. Richard Belzer, the actor of “Law and Order”, who just released a great book called “Dead Wrong”, summarized it quite accurately: “90% of the American people believe that JFK was murdered in a conspiracy. The other 10% work for the government or the media”.
The fact of the matter is that JFK was removed in a coup d’ etat, carried out a little more sophisticated than in the average banana republic. I always say that on november 22, 1963 the potential Kennedy dynasty, with Bobby and Ted waiting in the wings, was replaced by the Bush dynasty. This may sound odd, but few people know that the Bush family had tremendous influence over American politics even before the Kennedy presidency. Senator Prescott Bush for example, father of George Herbert Walker Bush, had made his fortune as a banker with Brown Brothers, Harriman, some of it by financing the war effort of Adolf Hitler. This is now all well documented. He was instrumental in convincing his golf mate Eisenhower to run for President and installing his minion “Tricky Dick” Nixon under him as Vice President. So Ike could stay playing golf, give a great speech when necessary, while the actual administration was run by Nixon under direction of the Bushes and friends, among them CIA director Allen Dulles and later president Gerald Ford, both Warren Commission members to “investigate” JFK’s murder. This was much like the Reagan/Bush administration, of Iran Contra fame, was run two decades later. Had the Bushes had their way, Nixon would have succeeded Eisenhower. Were it not that Kennedy won that election. Quite surprisingly and with the narrowest margin in history. As the story goes because Kennedy had made a deal with Chicago crime boss Sam Giancana to get some votes his way in return for the broken promise to lay low on Organized Crime. In short, there is a lot more than meets the eye.
Hence I was hardly surprised when in the year 2000, I discovered on the Internet the very detailed confession of James Files, a mafia prisoner in Illinois, claiming that he fired the fatal headshot into JFK’s temple from the infamous grassy knoll. I mean, I was hardly surprised that I had never heard of James Files, despite my then 12 year long study of the case. However, that long study had armed me with the ability to discern between real evidence and disinformation, with no shortage of the latter. That fact that I had never heard of James Files did actually enhance his credibility right away, maybe even before I started reading. After all, even if someone who confesses to have participated in the JFK assassination, is a kook telling a story for 15 minutes of fame, you would expect at least some publicity on the clown telling the story. Meanwhile I had of course learned that the truth is not publicized. If it is, it is usually to discredit the information. Which is exactly the case with James Files. In the little publicity there is, the authorities, including the FBI, have declared James Files “non credible”, basically because it conflicts with the conclusions of the holy Warren Report. Meanwhile the evidence for his truthfulness continues to grow. Just last year the notorious CIA asset Luis Posada Carriles confirmed in a filmed interview that he worked with James Files on several covert CIA operations. He also admitted that he and his partner Orlando Bosch were in Dealey Plaza when Kennedy was killed. Exactly as Files and Chauncey Holt said. Actually the testimonies of Holt and Files reinforce each other in more than one way. Files for example tells he was acting on orders of his boss and mafia enforcer Charles Nicoletti, while Holt relates how he drove with Nicoletti to Dallas. The Posada interview can be found by googling for “Evidence for James Files continues to grow (2)”.
My discovery of James Files eventually led me to visit him in 2003 in Joliet Correctional Center, together with a cameraman and author Jim Marrs, to record a second interview. Something he had vowed never to do again, but we could ultimately persuade him due to circumstances which are too elaborate to explain here. It’s all documented in my book and DVD “Files on JFK”. Both of these are not bestsellers due to the total blackout in sponsoring publicity. Not because the content is not appreciated by the readers that manage to find it. In fact it is the best rated JFK assassination book on Amazon.com with a maximum 5 stars. Some of those readers ask me why they have not heard of the book before. I believe I have answered part of that question now. The naysayers are usually the more ignorant among us, not wanting to absorb the evidence, rather believing the media and authorities, like I did myself in a distant past. Some of these people argue that if the JFK assassination was such a huge conspiracy, lots of people would have talked and the conspiracy would have been exposed. Well, that is in fact exactly what happened. We are just not being told about it. Lee Harvey Oswald exclaimed at once he was “just a patsy”. Numerous other witnesses and participants spilled the beans on the conspiracy, some of them paying with an untimely death. The list is endless but includes Jack Ruby, Rose Cheramie, David Morales, David Atlee Phillips, Charles Nicoletti, Sam Giancana, Charles Harrelson, Johnny Roselli, Carlos Marcello, Tosh Plumlee, E. Howard Hunt, Santos Trafficante, Luis Posada Carriles, David Ferrie, Dorothy Kilgallen, Lyndon Johnson to his mistress Madeleine Brown, Oswald’s girl friend Judyth Vary Baker, and on and on. Last but not least, the grassy knoll gunman himself talked.
Others say that the JFK assassination happened too long ago to be of interest today. I disagree wholeheartedly and blame it on ignorance. I maintain that that the political landscape of today is a direct result of the assassination. A sitting, elected President was removed through a secret, illegal coup d’etat and the ones who committed the crime, seized power. At least 4 succeeding Presidents were in some capacity involved in the planning and/or cover-up of the murder. Lyndon Baines Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford and George Herbert Walker Bush. It is therefore safe to say that George W. Bush, the most recent ex-President, also knows that JFK’s death was a coup d’etat, a crime against the American system and thus its people.. The assassination may be some time ago, but the power structure built on it, is still at the helm today. Not so long ago at all. Besides, game changing events are never too long ago. As the late comedian Bill Hicks said: “If the Kennedy assassination is too long ago, then quit talking to me about Jesus.”
