Report of the Select Committee on Assassinations, U.S. House of Representatives, Ninety-fifth Congress, second session

£40.00

Product description

Very clean copy. Looks unread. Nearly 15 years after the publication of the Warren Report, which determined that Lee Harvey Oswald was not "part of any conspiracy, domestic or foreign, to assassinate President Kennedy," the House Select Committee on Assassinations reached a different conclusion:

"The Committee believes, on the basis of the evidence available to it, that President John F. Kennedy was probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy."

The Committee also investigated the murder of Martin Luther King, Jr., and reached a similar conclusion:

"The Committee believes, on the basis of the circumstantial evidence available to it, that there is a likelihood that James Earl Ray assassinated Dr. Martin Luther King as a result of a conspiracy."

Both conclusions are often forgotten in the history of the assassinations of the 1960s. Beyond these pronouncements, the Committee conducted several detailed studies related to both murders, and published 12 volumes of accompanying evidence in each case. The working papers of the Committee, in the Kennedy case only, were declassified in the 1990s as a result of the 1992 JFK Records Act. These files add yet more to the base of knowledge in the Kennedy assassination, and in some cases provided eye-opening contradictions to the Committee's published material.
