Professor David Denton, in compiling his essays into a highly readable yet succinct 84-page book, has focused his attention on a number of books by authors such as David Talbot, John Newman, Joan Mellen (and others, including my own), and essays or presentations made by other researchers — including Edgar F. Tatro — to recompile them in his own way, forming a unique prism that adds clarity, context and coherence to our understanding of this most tragic event in American history.
This is what I wrote as the “Afterword” for Professor Denton’s book:
David Denton has done masterful work in conducting intensive research, teaching numerous young students, and organizing excellent symposiums, all related to reexamining the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
Mr. Denton has led the way for many others towards identifying the real truths, while flagging and rejecting the fabrications left by the original plotters, of what has now been established as a coup d’état that severely changed the very nature and spirit of the United States of America: From that of a peace-seeking, consensus-developing, benevolent nation committed to uniting its people to that of a paranoiac “National Security” culture with a war machine that seized control of its foreign and domestic policies, moving it toward becoming a world-wide hegemony.
Denton’s monumental essay “Nexus Redux – Joan Mellen did not debunk the idea of LBJ’s complicity in the murder of JFK” is arguably the final, definitive, and dispositive word on a long-debated, complex and controversial issue that has been the subject of massive misinformation intended to disprove LBJ’s personal involvement in the assassination of JFK. Thanks to David’s work, that is no longer the case: The facts which he has distilled provide a comprehensive analysis of the 1990’s discovery of LBJ-aide Malcolm Wallace’s fingerprints on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository, thus proving once and for all that either Wallace was in the sniper’s lair on that day (or, alternatively and near-absurdly, someone else placed them there for unknown, mysterious reasons).
I urge everyone to have a closer look at this book, which can be purchased either in 8 1/2 X 11″ slick paperback or Kindle at Lulu publishing HERE.
