This From a Former Career FBI Agent ...

Hello Jerry:

I was career FBI and retired in 1994 as SAC of Detroit. I never worked the Kennedy assassination but have read a lot about it including an abridged version of the Warren Report; Case Closed by Gerald Posner; and, Reclaiming History by Vincent Bugliosi.

I want to compliment you and Lisa McCubbin on your well documented and well written book. It was most interesting, packed with history, and hard to put down. I concur with your conclusion that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin. I thought you treated the FBI fairly when you said on page 321 that “In reality, Oswald had never threatened the president, so there was no legitimate reason for the FBI to pass information to the Secret Service.”

I think your book will be a real contribution to history and needs to be read by those seriously studying the history of the Kennedy assassination. I think it should also be required reading for all new Agents of the Secret Service indeed a fine agency.

Thank you for staying on task!
