5 JFK Assassination Books to Go Well With Your Tinfoil Hat

It’s funny how time never seems to lessen our curiosity and desire to find the answers to certain questions. Perhaps we don’t feel satisfied with what we’re given, or deep down we know there’s just something out there that we can’t quite reach. Many people feel this way about the assassination of the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy.

 

Our interests may have peaked recently with Trump releasing withheld files on JFK, his assassination, and the rumors surrounding it. Historians, citizens, and conspiracy theorists alike have been sharing mixed feelings about the release of the files. Some simply must know all they can, others don’t believe there’s anything more to it. Many think there’s more to the horrible and historic day than we may think. My grandma told me that year it was a quiet Thanksgiving; a somber cloud hung over the states that week and damn it if we’re not still thinking about November 22, 1963. 

 

Files or no files, it may not be for everyone, but this list contains five books on JFK’s life and assassination. They may change what you’ve thought before, but what better time than the present?

 

1. JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters by James W. Douglass

This book gives us rich detail on Kennedy’s feelings towards the Cold War and how a change of heart may very well have lead to his demise. Screenwriter Oliver Stone called it “the best account” of the JFK assassination. 

 

2. Case Closed: Lee Harvey Oswald and the Assassination of JFK by Gerald Posner

Posner cradles his work around the one truth of the assassination: Oswald acted alone. Now that the new files are released, could it still hold strong? Reviewed as the most reliable, this source may still have the answers you need.

 

3. JFK: The CIA, Vietnam, and the Plot to Assassinate John F. Kennedy by Colonel L. Fletcher Prouty

A former CIA operative gives us his best knowledge and the inside information that only an agent would know. His work was used for Oliver Stone’s movie JFK and it gives you incredible bits of information that will surely make you think twice.

 

4. They Killed Our President: 63 Reasons to Believe There Was a Conspiracy to Assassinate JFK by Jesse Ventura

Ventura’s New York Times bestseller will make you question everything. From the government’s actions and cover-ups, to the possible second shooter, this author leaves nothing and no one out. After getting through these sixty-three reasons, you will be decided.

 

5. The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ by Roger Stone

With fingerprints, evidence, and testimonies, Stone attempts to prove that Lyndon B. Johnson had JFK killed. Corruption and blackmail are the background of this book and we’re getting firsthand accounts thanks to Stone.

 

This may or may not be for you. Everyone seems to have differing opinions on the matter. Do you want your questions answered? Have a set belief in your head of how and why it happened? Have you strung ideas together on what seems more plausible? More documents are set to release and there’s so much more to uncover.

 

I think we should all remain curious, after all, doesn’t everyone have something to hide?
