50 Years Since JFK Assassination Retrospective: The JFK Assassination Cover Story?

In his 1992 book, JFK: The CIA, Vietnam and the Plot to Assassinate John F. Kennedy, Retired U.S. Air Force Col. L. Fletcher Prouty stated the following:

"The assassination of President John F. Kennedy was one of the truly cataclysmic events of this century [the 20th century]...Most thinking people of this country, and of the world, believe that he was not killed by a lone gunman. Despite that view, the cover story created and thrust upon us by the spokesmen of this High Cabal has existed for three decades [as of the 1990s]. It has come from the lips of every president and from the top media representatives and their spokesmen...Consider the pressure it must take to require all of quote the words of that contrived cover story over and over again for nearly three decades [as of the 1990s]..."

Yet Crossfire: The Plot That Killed Kennedy by Jim Marrs asserts that "Unless we, as a nation, come to a truthful understanding of what happened to our chief elected official in 1963, we obviously cannot begin to correctly understand the events that are affecting us today..."

Former U.S. Agent Produced CBS's JFK Assassination Show In 1993

After graduating from Yale, a former Washington Post National Security reporter named Walter Pincus apparently worked as a U.S. Army Counter-Intelligence Agent during the 1950s. And in November 1993, CBS News televised a show called "Who Killed JFK? The Final Report", which former U.S. Army Counter-Intelligence Agent Pincus helped produce and Dan Rather narrated. So, not surprisingly, this CBS News show did not allow many Warren Report critics to get on the screen to either debate with Warren Report defender Gerald Posner or explain why they thought CBS News was still trying to cover-up the truth of what happened in Dallas on November 22, 1963.

But being a Warren Report defender apparently can be quite lucrative. Warren Report defender and former CBS News anchor Dan Rather, for example, was offered a 10-year, $22 million contract by CBS in 1981.
