Mark Lane's "Last Word" debunks "The Kennedy Detail"

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional, Incomplete Summary, October 26, 2011

This review is from: Last Word: My Indictment of the CIA in the Murder of JFK (Hardcover)
Mark Lane has been a relentless force in the investigation of the JFK assassination. His poignant criticism of the "official" report did not keep him off the New York Times bestseller list in an era when many scholarly researchers like Harold Weisberg could not even find a publisher. Lane's performance has always been exceptional. His masterful debate with William F. Buckley displays an intellectual tug of war that exists to this very day - and Lane always seems to win. Lane's status has afforded him unprecedented access to very high profile opportunities across the spectrum of the investigation as an unmatched legal voice of dissent.

In Last Word, Lane offers an outstanding summary of his admirable work. Reading through the chapters, one is struck by this sometimes enigmatic (Jonestown / Posner) attorney's dedication to the case, as well as references to the contemporary American condition. Researchers may not find much new data, but Lane's assembly of familiar topics is clear and enjoyable. At the end, Lane now squarely accuses the CIA for murdering JFK. The fact that this accusation is made directly and openly in a published book perhaps signals a new level of tolerance and underscore's Lanes unique significance in the case, or at least that it is now acceptable to blame the acronym.

Lane's attention to the question of Secret Service malfeasance delivers a crushing review of "The Kennedy Detail", which is completely justified. By channelling Bolden, Lane also provides the necessary context for us to understand that, apparently, the Kennedy detail were comprised of holdover conservatives or racists who hated JFK, or his tolerant policies. This context allows the reader to further understand how the agency might have been compromised, and Lane documents some - but not all - of the widely known facts of the statistically impossible systemic failure on Elm Street. Lane may have erred when he claimed that the Secret Service did not gain possession of the Zapruder film - this agency controlled the vast majority of the prima facie evidence, a vital subject that Lane does not adress. Lane also does not consider that the reason for the men on the knoll and the TBSD having Secret Service credentials was perhaps because they were Secret Service - Lane appears satisfied with the Secret Service denial, which is incongruent given his apparent support for the theory that they were complicit. Lane's reiteration of the discovery that the CIA apparently issued most or all of the Secret Service credentials for the Dallas detail needs to be explored further. And while Lane stops short of "indicting" the agency who were in control of the president during the murder, he does direct readers to Vince Palamara, who has. Despite Lane endorsing these elements of the crime, readers will be perplexed later to find Lane questioning RFK's judgement in not accepting Secret Service protection, as if it were a fatal decision. At least one reader would have enjoyed Lane's sentient analysis probing the Secret Service question further.

In the final analysis, the CIA is an omnipotent tool wielded by the establishment. Readers who wish to further understand the establishment involvement in the crime and coverup should read The Kennedy Assassination Cover-Up. That the CIA turned it's machinations to a domestic target is a self-evident assertion. That certain members of the Secret Service detail were either elements of, or compromised by, the CIA to be active participants in the murder is widely suspected, yet not yet fully understood. Newcomb and Adams' "Murder From Within", Vince Palamara's "Survivor's Guilt", and Doug Horne's "Inside the AARB" provide readers with additional details that render's Lane's exceptional work incomplete.

Addendum: Mark Lane has recently given an interview where he clearly states that he agrees with the charge that the Secret Service systemic failure on 11/22/63 indicates that they were somehow complicit in the assassination of JFK. For demonstrating such courage, Lane deserves five stars.

I'll also make this short and sweet! If you want to see who the true fabricators, liars and traitors are, read this book. Lane thoroughly exposes them ... Hoover, Phillips, Bugliosi, Blakey and all the rest.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE KENNEDY DETAIL DEBUNKED, October 26, 2011
By Vince Palamara "SECRET SERVICE/JFK/STEELERS/M... (South Park/Bethel Park, PA) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME) This review is from: Last Word: My Indictment of the CIA in the Murder of JFK (Hardcover)
Attorney Mark Lane thoroughly destroys Gerald Blaine & Lisa McCubbin's book "The Kennedy Detail": on the merit of this alone, every person who purcashed and/ or read that book needs to read this as the antidote. Lane saves his best JFK work for last with his appropriately titled tome "The Last Word", a book that joins Jim Douglass "JFK & The Unspeakable" and Douglas Horne's 5-volume series "Inside The Assassination Records Review Board" in the "holy troika" of essential, must-read (and own) Kennedy assassination books. Lane skillfully takes apart Vincent Bugliosi's magnum opus on the Oswald-did-it side entitled "Reclaiming History" and, most of all, Gerald Blaine's fraudulent "JFK-told-us-not-to" book "The Kennedy Detail"---for the latter, Lane used my research materials, for which I am most grateful. In addition, Lane adds further credibility to the tale of former Secret Service Agent Abraham Bolden and his book "The Echo From Dealey Plaza." It never ceases to amaze me how much great literature and research has come forth in the last 5-10 years. Mark Lane's book "The Last Word" adds to his legacy greatly. Get this one asap---Bugliosi, Blaine, and the CIA have a lot to answer for! Highly recommended; fantastic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Reclaiming the Argument, October 29, 2011
By r-devic-saint (Pittsburgh, PA) - See all my reviewsThis review is from: Last Word: My Indictment of the CIA in the Murder of JFK (Hardcover)
In recent years, there has been an increased backlash, to cover the enormous inconsistencies in the official account of the assassination. Books like "The Kennedy Detail" by Gerald Blaine, and "Reclaiming History" by Vincent Bugliosi have sought to silence debate. They have done so with much media attention, but especially in the case of "The Kennedy Detail" they have done so by inventing "evidence" and theories more incredulous than what they seek to explain. Mark Lane expertly challenges and refutes their arguments in what has to be considered an essential book on the subject.

This review is from: Last Word: My Indictment of the CIA in the Murder of JFK (Hardcover)
Mark Lane's "Last Word" is a truly outstanding and impressive contribution to the JFK assassination case. Lane not only demonstrates what fiction "The Kennedy Detail" truly is, he also vindicates former Secret Service Agent Abraham Bolden in the process. What's more, Lane proves the case for conspiracy in the death of President Kennedy, its relevance to today's world, and points the finger resoundly at the CIA. Buy this asap!
