Descrizione prodotto


. . . 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.

This was a great read, well worth the time, effort, and money. It is a very well-rounded examination of the Kennedy assassination, with an emphasis on the little-studied Tippit shooting. I enjoyed that McBride started out with how the assassination affected him as a teen. His perspective was especially interesting given the fact that his parents were both local-level journalists and Kennedy supporters. I felt that I got to know the author, and it helped build my trust in his research.

I appreciate that McBride presents a variety of evidence, testimony, and perspectives and tussles with it along with the reader. If there is disagreement or inconsistency, McBride is honest enough to discuss it with an exploratory open mind, and he walks the reader through his logical assessment of the situation. This is in stark contrast to the many authors out there who cherry-pick the evidence to support their favored narrative, ignoring or glossing over contradicting evidence--I find that approach extremely dishonest and I totally lose faith in people who engage in that sort of "research".

McBride did a fantastic job with his research. Much of it is original research in that he combed through microfilm, HSCA documents, other documents, along with conducting his own interviews. He credits other researchers and engages with their work in relation to his. Penn Jones was an important mentor to McBride and influenced his work.

I like that McBride clearly indicates his sources right in the text. I as the reader always knew where he was getting his information from without drowning in footnotes. Sometimes, however, I did wish that there had been some numerical citations linked to bibliographical end notes so that if I had a very specific question about the source, I could have clicked on the numerical citation and been taken directly to the end notes. I did like that the Kindle edition had page numbers, making it easy to cite.

I am just beginning to read books about the JFK assassination, but I have a feeling that I will return to this one often as a crosscheck and reference. It was a well-written, smooth, and fascinating read. As I turned the last page, I was sorry that my journey with McBride was over.

5.0 su 5 stelle The Murder of Officer Tippit: More than Chance and Misfortune 15 novembre 2014
Di G. LLOYD - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Very fine work indeed by Professor Joseph McBride, biographer and historian, who has produced this incredibly gripping book, both academically researched and clearly written which I recommend to any student of the Kennedy assassination. This book compares very favourably with the works of James W Douglass and Peter Dale Scott.

Professor McBride having been a Kennedy volunteer in Wisconsin in 1960 has tried to the very best of his ability, over a long period of research and writing, to advance the process of understanding started by other researchers soon after those events occurred and taken further forward since by many admirable scholars of the case.

By the author's own admission, he does not claim to have solved the assassination of President Kennedy and the murder of Patrolman JD Tippit, but his work sheds far greater light on the overall conspiracy and previously obscure aspects of the murder in Oak Cliff shortly after the death of the president.

Some of the key points raised by Joe McBride.

Penn Jones once said that anyone planning to research the conspiracy to murder President Kennedy should take one aspect that so far has been neglected and then research the Hell out of it. For this aspect of the Kennedy assassination has been woefully investigated. So much for the due care and diligence the DPD had for one of its own, they couldn't even investigate this murder properly. What does that tell us?

There are those who say that Lee Harvey Oswald murdered both President Kennedy and Patrolman JD Tippit. Any evidence for this is contradictory. From a legal viewpoint, is Oswald's guilt beyond reasonable doubt? Is it not more likely that Oswald was a patsy for both murders that took place on November 22nd 1963? Is it not much more likely that Tippit was playing a significant role in the conspiracy himself before he was shot in Oak Cliff at 1.06/1.09/ or even as late as 1.15pm? For anyone new to this, these timings are crucial if we are to pin the blame on Oswald.

Tippit was not assigned to Oak Cliff so why was he there? Was he to meet Oswald in Oak Cliff? To kill him, to help him escape? How did any member of the DPD know that they were to look for Oswald, when Oswald's identity only became known to them at 1.46pm? Was Oswald already at the Texas Theatre when Tippit was gunned down?

A lot of the evidence in this case is a mess. Both the physical evidence and eye witness accounts contradict each other very starkly and the description of Tippit's killer or killers are very different. Almost as if there were two sets of witnesses, as some described two people running away after the shooting which had all the characteristics of a professional hit. Subsequent paraffin tests on Oswald did not indicate he had fired any weapons that day.

Just how many wallets did Oswald have? It seems highly suspicious that he just happened to leave one of them at the scene of Tippit's murder. Oswald was found to have a wallet on his person when he was arrested. Following his arrest he was found to have two diffirent sets of ID, so his real identity wasn't known for sure by around 2pm. There are strong suspicions that Oswald was a paid informant for both the FBI and CIA.

The four bullets found at the scene could not be matched to Oswald's gun. And of these there were two different makes of ammunition. How can this be explained? Does this not indicate that there were two shooters? Witness Aquilla Clemmons saw two different gunmen running off in two different directions. Virginia Davis heard the shots and saw two police officers already at the scene, when official records state that no police showed up until 1.22pm. Was one of the guns an automatic which Jim Leavelle believed when looking at the location of the spent and unmarked cartridges? So the ballistics evidence is worthless in that it cannot connect Oswald with Tippit's shooting. In fact that evidence exonerates Lee Harvey Oswald.

The Tippit murder was almost like something staged and co-incidentally took place very closely to where Jack Ruby lived. Just two blocks away. A lot of the witnesses to Tippit's death had connections to Jack Ruby.

What about Tippit's background? Was he the devoted father and family man as described in his eulogies in 1963? He was possibly on the verge of divorce at that time. Tippit certainly had one mistress in Johnnie Maxie Witherpoon and maybe others. He was financially overburderned having two mortgages at the time of his death. He suffered from PTSD following his war service during WW11. He was seen as someone who had a very rough side in the way he treated teenagers at Austins, where he worked on a part time basis. Allen Dulles former CIA Chief asked Chief Curry at the Warren Commission if Tippit had any involvement with narcotics. A strange question. Tippit's career as a police officer was undistinguished, never having been promoted in his 11 years service. Could this have given Tippit the financial incentive to become involved in the conspiracy to murder John F Kennedy? It is also interesting and odd that Tippit took instructions not just by police radio but by public pay phone also.

So there is a much darker side to Tippit to the one we have been made to believe. Tippit was seen as an excellent marksman and at the time of his death only photos of Tippit in his youth were released. Why? Earlier that morning on November 22nd, 1963,Tippit hugged his 13 year old son Allen and said 'No matter what happens today, I want you to know that I love you'. Something seen as unusually affectionate for a man for whom this was quite uncharacteristic. What did Tippit mean by that remark?

So quite a different picture of Tippit emerges. Who could have killed Tippit? If not Oswald then who? Possible suspects worth further scrutiny are Harry Olsen DPD Officer who quickly left Dallas for California in early December 1963. Darrell Wayne Garner who had attempted to shoot another witness to Tippit's murder. Could he have been in Oak Cliff?

Finally take a look at 'Badgeman' who can be seen in the Mary Moorman photograph and then take a look at photographs of Tippit at age 39 and see his distinctive hairline. Is this connection really possible? Why was Tippit's gun removed from the scene of his death? This should be considered. The key is to establish what is credible. After 51 years, establishing the truth is what researchers must continue to do. They must do the job the Warren Commission, FBI, HSCA and many parts of the US media did not do. The academic community must keep trying to shed much more light on aspects of the assassination conspiracy that have remained in darkness for much too long.

In his book November 22, 1963: You Are the Jury (1973), David Belin, Assistant Counsel to the Warren Commission and one of the chief defenders of the Warren Report, asserts that "[t]he Rosetta Stone to the solution of President Kennedy's murder is the murder of Officer J. D. Tippit. . . . Once [it] is admitted that Oswald killed Patrolman J. D. Tippit, there can be no doubt that the overall evidence shows that Lee Harvey Oswald was the assassin of John F. Kennedy."

As this book demonstrates, Mr Belin was right about the Tippit murder being the Rosetta Stone to the solution of President Kennedy's murder but not for the reasons he proposed.

5.0 su 5 stelle Solid, thoughtful history-- a necessary book on THE tragedy of the 20th century. 26 aprile 2015
Di Tim Fattig - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Reading Joseph McBride's deeply personal account of the JFK assassination is rather like trying to pick up broken glass: it's difficult and it will cut you, and yet, it needs to be done for there's no way to do it, but to see it through. This is not another polemic masquerading as true-crime thriller, no fill-in-the-blank journey through the Land of 1,000 Conspiracy Theories ("And on your left, it's H.L. Hunt! Wave to Mr. Hunt, everyone! Keep your windows rolled up!"). This is much more than that because it never lets you lose sight of the truly epic scale of what happened in 1963, as well as its reverberations through the decades, and because McBride can WRITE. That's not something one should ever take for granted, especially in the field of non-fiction, where most readers are happy to forgive overly dry, technical writing in the interest of getting some new historical information. So to get new, important information, and to have it presented in such a vital and compelling way, truly is the best of both worlds. Very highly recommended.

Before I finished the Kindle edition of this book I ordered the paperback edition -- it's that good. The last time I was this enlightened was when I read Witness by Whittaker Chambers*. If you've read Mark Lane, David Lifton, Doug Horne, Roger Stone, James Douglass etc. you will find this book to be a goldmine. McBride reinforces strengths and exposes weaknesses of all rational suggestions and then offers the best explanations that can be sustained by the currently available information.

McBride takes you to the assassination through an autobiographical/historical journey which was pioneered by Whittaker Chambers in his epic: Witness. If you are unfamiliar with the method, you may find it difficult to endure McBride's personal and national socio-political history journey. It is well worth the patience.

But, if you find you just have to get to the facts you came to read about, skip to Chapter 3 "Epic Splendor" which is where the assassination fact-stuff begins. You can also skip directly to a particular topic of interest like say, J.D. Tippit. This is where I began.

I bought the book because it appeared to be a source for research into the Rosetta Stone of the conspiracy: the professional execution of J.D. Tippit.

I assumed McBride would have a presentation of the latest facts about the conspiracy and figured I would skim the other parts after finding out what he had to say about the J. D. Tippit murder.

A few dozen pages into the Tippit material I realized I had found a JFK assassination research goldmine. McBride takes new approaches to interpreting old evidence and provides a bunch of new revelations too. So I went back to page 1 and devoured it cover to cover.

And thank you Joe McBride for providing the background of Mary Ferrell being the legal secretary for Locke! It explains why getting information from her (now her disciples) leaves you feeling oddly violated.

[For those who don't know, Eugene Locke was Lyndon Johnson's campaign manager and John Connally's campaign manager. Locke was the attorney for Marie Tippit and her $5 million trust fund (in today's dollars; $700,000 in 1964).

Marie Tippit was the "poor widow" of the less than innocent police officer J. D. Tippit who was NOT killed by Oswald. Tippit was executed gangland style by other corrupt cops and/or the assassination plotters.

It was the framing of Oswald as a "cop killer" that made it possible to convince the country that no due process or trial was necessary to pin the assassination on Oswald. Because, you know, he killed a cop!

Thank you Joseph McBride for this lifelong contribution as a JFK scholar and helping edge this country toward the truth, and correcting the historical record. I was born in 1974 and I continue to be appalled that our government lied to the generations that pulled us through the world wars. My grandfather landed in Normandy on DDay and deserved better. He voted for JFK. We owe it to their legacy to getting the historical record corrected.

McBride has done something very significant in revealing the intelligence connections of Mary Ferrell and her role with the law firm that helped plan the motorcade route and for bringing to light important facts such as Ferrell's personal car being used in the motorcade. That's just too many coincidences for me.

I found it particularly revealing of a conspiracy in that the oil & gas attorney purchased all the houses around the Tippit murder within months and knocked them down, moving the witnesses out of the area. The truth must have been manifesting itself amongst the citizens on that street and that had to be stopped.

McBride doesn't make the point but I think the Tippit shooting disinformation witnesses with connections to Jack Ruby make a lot more sense when you remind yourself that Ruby was never supposed to have to shoot Oswald himself. If Oswald had been shot in Oak Cliff then history would never have known the name Jack Ruby and those connections would never have been known. It really was significant that Oswald made those brief appearances on television that weekend and had to be silenced. And I think it's important to know to reiterate here that Jack Ruby may have been at the hospital to plant a bullet. While Ruby was a conspirator, his later admissions have also helped clarify the existence of the highest level conspiracy.

The eyewitness testimony from the Grassy Knoll is so well documented it is hard to deny shots were fired from there. I'm so surprised I had not heard that testimony before. The truth is out there. Why would police officers be so focused on taking the film immediately after the shooting? To me that is clear evidence of DPD involvement in the conspiracy.

While we don't know if Tippit was a shooter on the Grassy Knoll, we know he not far away in Oak Cliff and was an extraordinary marksman with an alarming psych profile which makes one wonder if he was the crying officer.
