Sinossi

“AMERICA’S NEED TO WALK INTO THE NIGHTMARE . . .”
. . . was how Norman Mailer predicted the tumultuous period that led to President John F. Kennedy’s 1963 murder on a public street and the fifty years of controversy that have followed that turning point in our nation’s history. Journalist and historian Joseph McBride, a volunteer in JFK’s 1960 Wisconsin presidential primary campaign, began studying the assassination minutes after it happened. In 1982, McBride launched his own investigation. Both epic and intimately personal, Into the Nightmare: My Search for the Killers of President John F. Kennedy and Officer J. D. Tippit incorporates rare interviews with key people in Dallas, archival discoveries, and what novelist Thomas Flanagan, in The New York Review of Books, called McBride’s “wide knowledge of American social history.” McBride chronicles his evolving skepticism about the official story and shines a fresh, often surprising spotlight on Kennedy’s murder and on one of the murkiest, most crucial aspects of the case,!
its “Rosetta Stone,” the Tippit killing.
Joseph McBride has been a journalist since 1960, writing for such publications as Life, The New York Review of Books, The New York Times Book Review, The Los Angeles Times Magazine, and, on this subject, The Nation. An internationally renowned film biographer and historian, he has written acclaimed biographies of John Ford, Frank Capra, and Steven Spielberg. McBride lives in Berkeley, California, and is a professor at San Francisco State University.

5.0 su 5 stelle A Master Work! 23 luglio 2013
Di Vince Palamara - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
Every once in a while, a book comes along that is not merely a book, a good book, or even, for that matter, a great book, but what I am fond of calling a master work. "Into The Nightmare" by Joseph McBride is just such a rare commodity: a master work on the assassination that is very well written (even poetic at times), thought provoking, and well researched. Clearly, the author is passionate about both President Kennedy (having met the man several times in younger days) and his tragic assassination. This passion comes through, loud and clear, on every page, but without the shrill tone common in many books on this subject. In short, this volume was written with loving care, encompassing every facet of the case, including the murder of police officer J.D. Tippit, an area that usually receives short shrift in the literature of the assassination.

Along with other such master works as Jim Douglass "JFK & The Unspeakable" and Doug Horne's 5-volume"Inside The ARRB", McBride's book is an essential purchase and essential reading. This one is a keeper; a book you will refer back to again and again. They don't make them like this very often. Get this very fine volume asap- you'll be glad you did.

5.0 su 5 stelle The Downhill Slide of Democracy 23 luglio 2013
Di Judy Schavrien - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
Regarding the NSA scandal--what one might call the surveillance conspiracy--Jimmy Carter recently said in Der Spiegel (July 17, 2013) that "America has no functioning democracy at this moment." He has also praised Snowden's courage, hoping it would give the United States a salutary shakeup. When did the tipping point occur? When did democracy's downhill slide begin? According to Joseph McBride, playing journalistic and scholarly tour guide as he takes us Into the Nightmare, it began with the successful killing of JFK--and of Officer J.D. Tippit as well--on November 22, 1963, gaining momentum with a seemingly well-orchestrated coverup in the wake. Luckily, Professor McBride accomplishes an astonishing feat in offering his reinterpretation, one that profits from his three decades of diligent research on the topic and his interdisciplinary and encyclopedic ability to remember and arrange.

If you think Professor McBride is one of those crazy conspiracy theorists, be sure to read his chapter on the CIA's campaign, memos and all, to throw doubt on any who might come to question the Oswald-only version of the assassination, who might instead argue that there were a number of killers, e.g. Grassy Knoll marksmen as well. It is possible you will recognize, as you read the CIA memo, tag lines that hang out in your own or a friend's mind, the prefab objections to conspiracy theorists. On the other hand, Watergate, Iran/Contra, NSA may float to the surface of your mind and you may have to admit that conspiracies do happen. If they can happen from the governmental side, why not from the side of the assassins? Or were the two sides one and the same?

Some players include the CIA, the anti-Castro Cubans, big oil and the mafia: LBJ and even the elder Bush (Chapter 10) would have a fair amount to explain as well. The doubts regarding such players are by no means wildly raised, but very carefully, very systematically. "Paranoid" is one of the buzzwords the CIA had suggested for its campaign against conspiracy theorists: It is right there in the memo that McBride documents. But the McBride book gives not only evidence that confirms its theories but also that which disconfirms: good research.

I refer, in this case, to the evidence bearing on the Warren Commission report's "lone nut" version of the killings, with Oswald having been responsible for not only Kennedy's death and Governor Connally's injury--including using just one bullet that got them both, no less--but also for Officer Tippit's death en route to Oswald's own attempted escape. This book is, henceforth, a must-read for any with an ongoing interest in what remains an open case. That it does remain an open case is proven by the simple fact that the Warren Commission report, with Oswald as the "lone nut," has been later contradicted by the House Select Committee on Assassinations report, which finally concedes that two shooters must have been active.

McBride himself points out unique contributions as he goes along, the biggest one being his new and telling research on the J.D. Tippit death, research that begins to link Tippit with Ruby and the mafia, big oil, and the extreme right wing. It must be remembered as well, which McBride demonstrates, that, should LBJ have been involved in the JFK assassination, which is not proven, although there is documentation of his involvement in the coverup, he profited enormously from reversing JFK's intentions to gradually withdraw from Vietnam, since he owned substantial stock in Kellogg, Brown & Root, which had been absorbed in 1962 into Halliburton, both of which enjoyed a pile of non-competitive contracts for the wars in Vietnam and Iraq. With the death of JFK, LBJ also ducked a scandal about his own finances which would have burst upon the scene any minute. Oddly enough, then, solving the Tippit death accurately, rather than throwing that one on Oswald as well--who cried out when being led off "I'm just a patsy!"--is crucial.

Finally, McBride fashions this book of non-fiction, this history, as a Bildungsroman. The "Bildung" or education of an idealistic youth he tells in all its idiosyncracy: The author began as an ardent believer in Catholicism, America, and its free media, with two journalists for parents; he gradually lost that bloom of innocence, resisting along the way, and acquired the wound of experience; he tells the story so vividly that it becomes the American journey itself. Luckily, the wound does not prevent his own dogged progress, patriotic even or especially in its deeply skeptical approach. Blood, however, stains the pages. Without not only McBride's wakeup call but also the many other calls that are right now sounding, both about a political shadow government and even (cf. Catherine Austin Fitts) a financial shadow system as well, and without our actively heeding those calls, there will be, at home and abroad, more blood to come. Hannah Arendt has said (University of Chicago, lecture series, early `70's) that Americans at the founding wanted to be free from governing and concern with government rather than free to exert themselves in self-governing. This is a luxury we can no longer afford, perhaps could never afford. May it soon be said again, in a voice not of innocence but of experience, that America has a functioning democracy.

5.0 su 5 stelle If we have an FBI, CIA, DPD & Secret Svc then why in the WORLD do obsessives like Joe McBride investigate the JFK assassination? 4 agosto 2013
Di Robert P. Morrow - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile|Acquisto verificato
So why did Joseph McBride, like thousands of other average Americans, spend decades on his own investigating the JFK assassination? Good God, I thought we had the Dallas police, the FBI and the Allen Dulles-controlled Warren Commission for that. Not to mention CIA assets at the NYT, Washington Post, CBS, ABC, NBC and scores of other CIA assets in the MSM, and the wire services to do that. With those fine people in charge, why is it necessary for obsessives to figure out what Big Brother has already solved for us?

One reason for McBride's personal odyssey, the reason "average folks" with above average tenacity took it upon themselves to investigate who murdered JFK is because back in 1963-64 the murderers of John Kennedy were the ones running the non-investigation into his death. Asking Lyndon Johnson, J. Edgar Hoover and Allen Dulles to investigate the death of a Kennedy is like asking John Gotti to investigate a mob hit. In fact, I think it is very reasonable to conclude that LBJ, Hoover and Dulles were all involved in the JFK assassination, not just the cover up. There is more indicting Lyndon Johnson in particular than any other perp in the JFK assassination.

McBride is known as the man who found Hoovers memo of 11/29/63 stating that the FBI had briefed on the day after the JFK assassination, 11/23/63, a Mr. George Bush of the CIA about the status of the anti-Castro Cuban radicals reaction to the JFK assassination.

That memo is important because it pretty much proves GHW Bush was in the CIA in 1963 ... but we already knew that. And he had close ties to anti-Castro Cuban radicals, later commuting the sentence of anti-Castro Cuban terrorist Orlando Bosch. McBride found that declassified memo in 1985.

In my opinion, GHW Bush, today in 2013, is the face of the murderers of John Kennedy. Says he can't remember where he was when the JFK murder happened. Based on that alone ... book'em Danno! Hawaii-Five-O style!

McBride's book focuses on his decades of original research into the JFK coup d'etat, explores the GHW Bush angle and he examines the Tippit murder which is the Rosetta Stone of ... the posthumous frame up of a conveniently dead Oswald - a "dead Red" and not a "taking head" in the words of John Judge.

There is one name missing from the index of this book and that name is "Madeleine Brown." No wonder McBride can't really figure out what happened, try as he does. Because once one figures out that Madeleine Brown is in fact quite credible, then one knows Lyndon Johnson was in this crime up to his bloody eyeballs.

Another name missing in the index is Gen. Edward Lansdale, identified by two of his peers Col. Fletcher Prouty and Gen. Victor Krulak as present at TSBD at about 2PM (when the photo of the 3 tramps was taken). The identification of Gen. Edward Lansdale has helped researchers identify from whence the shots came from, which has long been controversial.

The shots came from the Pentagon.

McBride does include one of the truly epic breakthroughs in the case- the Antonio Veciana identification of the CIA's David Atlee Phillips meeting with Lee Harvey Oswald in early September 1963, or perhaps late August 1963 in Dallas, TX. That pretty much means the CIA was running Oswald.

And the shots came from Langley, too.

Not that Oswald shot anyone, but that the CIA let him be framed or the fall guy.Roger Stone has a book coming out identifying Jack Ruby as a "Lyndon Johnson" man from the 1940's. LBJ was one of a handful of the earliest congressional overseers of the CIA and the point man for the military-industrial complex of the 1950's.

I didn't see the KGB's fingering of LBJ as a perp in this book either. That came out in a Hoover memo from the ARRB in the 1996.
Let's give credit and much thanks to Joseph McBride for that labor of love and all those decades of research/investigation on the JFK assassination. Him and thousands of other average Americans.

But let's not kid ourselves. The JFK assassination was solved a long, long time ago. The only thing missing is the psychological will of the American people, especially the elites, to accept it was a full blown down and dirty "Seven Days in May" coup d'etat.
LBJ Did It. And he had a lot of help from military intelligence, the CIA and Dallas, TX oil executives, all with immaculate CIA/military connections.

Case closed.

5.0 su 5 stelle This Is A Wonderful Book 18 agosto 2013
Di Norma Desmond - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile|Acquisto verificato
I don't have much to add to what other positive reviewers have said. However, I do want to make a comment about something the author says about Lee Oswald, shortly after he was arrested on November 22, 1963. I don't remember the exact wording, but Oswald says he has not been charged with the President's murder, and that he didn't know anything about it until a reporter "axed" him. Author McBride speculates that this could be a symptom of dyslexia.

I want to point out that pronouncing the word "ask" as "axe" is a New Orleans idiom, I think that's the right term, and since Oswald was from New Orleans, it would make sense that he would fall back into old speech patterns, particularly in a stressful situation.

Although he may have been dyslexic, I don't know.

I'm not even finished with the book yet, but I think it's one of the most worthwhile things I have ever read. It's disappointing that it does not have a bigger circulation, so that the price could be lower. It's also disappointing that it does not have a bigger circulation for the simple reason that most people probably are not concerned about this very important subject. I tried discussing the Kennedy assassination with my neighbors, who are close to my age (old enough to remember this event), and neither one of them knew what year it happened, or who Jack Ruby was. I was dumbfounded that otherwise intelligent people are clueless and have no interest in this life-changing topic.

I would actually give this 4-1/2 stars, because I've always been skeptical about "Badgeman" and I think the case for J.D. Tippit being the assassin behind the Grassy Knoll is pretty weak. Otherwise, this is a remarkable book, a personal tale of a young, innocent Kennedy fan's gradual awakening and radicalization by the events of the last 50 years.

The author gives us a lengthy account of his upbringing in a political family, his personal encounters with JFK himself, and his experiences during the assassination weekend. He convincingly describes the psychic numbing of the country by the national media and its non-stop television coverage designed to create "closure" by the time people went back to their normal lives the day after the funerals. His initial acceptance of the official story is followed by exposure to the writings of the first generation of Warren Commission critics. A running thread throughout the book is a highly readable history of the research community, their books and theories, as well as the various government investigations. I'm a little dismayed to see no mention of Harold Weisberg (`Whitewash,' `Post Mortem') or Howard Roffman (`Presumed Guilty') in the bibliography, but that's just me.

He mentions some recent evidence that was new to me (Evelyn and Arthur King, the black couple on the bench behind the retaining wall) and summarizes some books I haven't read. He discusses the revelations about Henry Wade and the framing of innocent suspects for decades in Dallas County, a fact that obviously applies to Oswald. McBride has interviewed many witnesses and dug up numerous documents and memos over the last 30 years. He's done the kind of journalistic research that the corporate media has failed to do. There's a section on George H.W. Bush and his CIA connections, and a discussion of the research of Russ Baker in Family of Secrets. The author accepts theories about Zapruder film alteration and body alteration, which I'm more of an agnostic about. He does make a pretty good case that Mary Ferrell was acting as something of a gatekeeper in the research community.

Roughly half of the book is devoted to the Tippit murder, and he does the best job I've ever seen in summing up all the evidence and theories in the case, and sharing the work of many researchers who are not household names (Larry Ray Harris, Greg Lowrey, Gary Murr, Bill Drenas, Ken Holmes and Bill Pulte). I do wish he had mentioned the filmed interviews with Helen Markham and Ted Callaway in `The Men Who Killed Kennedy,' as they stand on 10th and Patton describing two different-looking people fleeing in two different directions. It's pretty obvious that the Tippit murder remains unsolved, and maybe unsolvable. Tippit himself is still a somewhat mysterious figure, and I remain unsure about any political views he might have had, or what his role in the events of 11/22/63 was.
