Happened to surf by Oliver Stone’s “JFK” last night and stuck with it. I had seen the movie when it came out, even wrote a NY Post column about it — have no idea what I said. But in 1991 I was a good deal less inclined to credit the possibility of malign US government conspiracies. Now, after the (second) Iraq War, we’re probably all a little more cynical.
I know there’s a ton of books out there on both sides, (I remember my stepfather was very excited by getting to know Mark Lane in the early sixties). I know there was a fairly authoritative “Case Closed” book published in 1993. What do others think of this? As portrayed in Stone’s movie, the second “magic bullet” theory does seem pretty unlikely.
