This is the anniversary of the 1964 release of the Warren Commission report on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The New York Times has reposted its front-page story from that day here.
The Times’ notes that the Warren Commission report “listed as factors that might have led Oswald to the assassination ‘his deep-rooted resentment of all authority’….”
Damn but that was a convenient explanation. No need to do any more digging – Oswald distrusted the government, case closed.
I wondered if was there anything in that New York Times piece that would have been different if J. Edgar Hoover himself have written it. The biggest crock in the article: “The commission made public all the information it had bearing on the events in Dallas, whether agreeing with its findings or not.”
The Warren Commission was subsequently exposed as one of the biggest frauds of post-World War Two American history.
Jacob Hornberger (a proud Texan) of the Future of Freedom Foundation has been doing an excellent series of articles on the JFK assassination. His work has shaken to the core my faith in President Lyndon Johnson.
