Over forty years have passed
since US President John F Kennedy was shot and killed in Dealey Plaza,
Dallas, Texas. It is not my intention to re-examine all the old evidence
or attempt to come to any new and startling theories. But, like many,
I do believe that the murder was the result of a conspiracy and part of
a coup d'etat by the US industrio-military complex. It happened there,
it could happen here! We forget the events of November 22nd, 1963
at our peril!
Like most people of my age, I really can remember exactly
what I was doing as the news broke on UK TV: the assassination made a
profound effect on me as a twelve year-old, and I still watch every documentary
on the subject and read every book I come across. But have you noticed

as if all the missing pieces of the evidential jigsaw have been located
and tested. Lee Harvey Oswald is now firmly identified to posterity as
the disaffected 'wannabe' who was the sole author of the crime.
But watching the several
recent TV programmes issued to mark the anniversary, I was perturbed to
