Why have there been so many books about the murder of JFK? Was it simply because he was President or is because we have been lied to about the evidence?

When the son of the late Robert F. Kennedy announced before a live audience recently that his father did not believe in the lone gunman theory regarding the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, nor respect the Warren Commission report on the subsequent investigation, renewed consumer interest was directed to a small publishing company based in Oregon called Trineday.
Founded by Kris Millegan, the 50-plus book house specializes in well-researched publications that challenge the mainstream press. Chief among Trineday’s best sellers are books by former FBI agents and other witnesses to the JFK events, who insist that the true story about the assassination has yet to be told.
All of the titles conclude that Lee Harvey Oswald did not act alone, or in some cases, challenge whether he was the shooter at all.
The latest of these publications is Trineday’s Bond of Secrecy, wherein the son of CIA Spy and Watergate Conspirator E. Howard Hunt details his father’s deathbed confession about the plot to kill JFK.
In Howard Hunt’s near-death confession to his son Saint John, Hunt reveals that key figures in the CIA were involved in the plot to assassinate JFK in Dallas, and that Hunt himself was approached by the plotters, who included the CIA’s David Atlee Phillips, Cord Meyer, Jr., and William Harvey, as well as future Watergate burglar Frank Sturgis. The death-bed confession was a “bond of secrecy between my father and me that would last 35 years,” writes Saint John, up-ending his world.
Perhaps that is the most intriguing link between all the JFK-assassination reads in the Trineday list: all the authors are determined to tell their stories despite the doubts and ridicule their allegations seem to invite, no matter how well-documented.
Judyth Vary Baker, author of Me & Lee: How I Came to Know, Love and Lose Lee Harvey Oswald, recently toured the United States and before she was even interviewed about her experiences and her memoir, a west-coast paper declared her story a “hoax”. Yet, her book is a detailed narrative about how her early research career brought her to New Orleans and into the circles frequented by Oswald. She details what she knew of Kennedy’s impending assassination, her conversations with Oswald as late as two days before the killing, and her belief that Oswald was a deep-cover intelligence agent who was framed for an assassination he was actually trying to prevent.
Her story is collaborated by a companion book, Dr. Mary’s Monkey by former journalist Ed Haslam. Upon investigating a 1964 cold murder case in New Orleans, he also documents the link between the local medical community, anti-Castro sentiment of the times, and covert government operations. It’s a fascinating tale of medical secret-keeping that began with the handling of evidence in the JFK assassination and continued apace for three decades, sweeping doctors into cover ups of cancer outbreaks, contaminated polio vaccines, and the arrival of the AIDS virus.
A more inside look into the actual JFK assassination investigation is provided by former FBI Agent Don Adams, whose book From an Office Building with a High-Powered Rifle details his assignments in Georgia and Texas and connects previous threats against the President by a known racist agitator to the fateful day in Dallas. Mr. Adams also strongly refutes the lone gunman theory with his own analysis and inside information from the investigation.
The Trineday catalogue will certainly leave the reader skeptical about Lee Harvey Oswald’s abilities to carry off such a sophisticated coup. Looking at the assassination within a global context, author and university professor George Michael Evica explains in A Certain Arrogance how United States intelligence agencies manipulated groups and institutions for ideological, political, and economic gain during the Cold War, especially an unwitting Lee Harvey Oswald—an asset and pawn of American intelligence—who was the ideal scapegoat in a tragically successful conspiracy to murder President Kennedy.
Publisher Kris Millegan has gone to court to protect his authors’ free speech rights and right to tell their stories.
“Why have there been so many books about the murder of JFK? Was it simply because he was President or is because we have been lied to about the evidence?” said Millegan. “There are those who say it doesn’t matter, that we will never know the truth."
“What do I say? I strive with all my heart for a better world. Corruption leaves our people in despair. Let’s talk, write and try to live up to America’s destiny.”
Finally, it seems events are converging to make Mr. Millegan’s and his authors’ stories right for the times.
