The report of the Warren Commission says Lee Harvey Oswald, working alone, killed President John F. Kennedy. This discussion is largely an emphatic and often hotly argued rebuttal to the commission's findings. It begins with "The only way you can believe the Warren Report is to not read it" and ranges through charges of incompetence on the part of the Dallas police and destruction and misrepresentation of evidence by the FBI, and accusations of carelessness, as well as suppression of evidence and testimony, on the part of the commission.
Included in this heated debate the timeline to all activities on that tragic day, November 22, 1963, filmed interview accounts by eyewitnesses, transcription highlights of the Warren Commission Report and eerie details concerning those individuals who were involved, directly and indirectly in the assassination's, who are now dead under mysterious circumstances.
Panelists: Mark Lane, hired as counsel to protect the dead Oswald's interests by Mrs. Marguerite Oswald, is the author of "Rush To Judgement." Journalist Leo Sauvage has written "The Oswald Affair." Harold Weisberg recently published "Whitewash: The Report On The Warren Report." Editor Penn Jones wrote, "Forgive My Grief." Historian Jacob Cohen calls himself "by and large a defender of the commission." Syndicated columnist Jim Bishop is the moderator. Journalist/correspondent David Schoenbrun introduces the program.
NOTE: After repeated requests, and silence from members of the Warren Commission during the production of this special TV presentation, producer Mel Bailey received acceptance from the commission to participate in a follow up report, stated at the beginning of this broadcast.
There is also mention by David Schoenbrun that Bailey is now working on a program featuring these members and their reflections of the commission and its staff.
It is not known if this program was ever completed or broadcast.
NOTE: Occasionally transmission audio interference is heard but not often and not interfering with the comprehension of this almost three hour round table discussion, sans commercials.
