It has now been 60 years since the assassination of President John F Kennedy in Dallas.
And yet his death remains the subject of widespread conspiracy theories.
But 30 years ago, there was a definitive book written that reached the same conclusion that the Warren Commission did in the 1960s. That conclusion: Lee Harvey Oswald killed the president, and acted alone.
The author of that book, called Case Closed, was investigative journalist Gerald Posner. Using technology completely unheard of in the 1960s, Posner reached the same conclusion.
So here now from 1993 Gerald Posner.
Gerald Posner is 69. HHs most recent book was a 2020 volume about big pharma.
For a few days in mid-October 1962, the world teetered on tghe brink of all-out nuclear war between the United States, led by President John F. Kennedy, and the Soviet Union, commanded by Premier Nikita Khrushchev.
It began when U.S. spy planes detected Soviet missiles being shipped to, and installed in, Cuba.
President Kennedy weas determined not to allow what was seen as an act of Soviet aggression in our hemisphere, whil Khrushchev was acting in what he believed was defensed of Cuba against possihble U.S. aggression.
The situation quickly escalated into a showdown that brought us to the edge, but ultimately, cooler heads prevailed.
