Almost fifty years after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas on November 22, 1963, the question whether Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin, or not, remains one of the most controversial topics in modern history. In “Killing Kennedy,” Philip Coppens shows that Oswald was not the assassin the government claimed he was. Tracing all the evidence – the rifle, prints, bullets, etc. – he finds that the material that inculpated Oswald was not what was found on the scene of the crime. Indeed, the Dallas Police officers themselves, in testimony before the Warren Commission, said that they could not identify the objects as those recovered! There is even evidence – a photograph – that shows Oswald standing outside, watching the motorcade pass by!
