Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.

Robert A. Wagner on the JFK Assassination
We here present Martin Hay's review of Robert Wagner's The Assassination of JFK, which was published in the fall of 2016. We also link to David Mantik's review of this volume at his site, where you can read it along with David's other valuable writings.
Wagner emerged as an admirer of Vincent Bugliosi and his elephantine volume called Reclaiming History. He was also an informal advisor to the prosecution at the November 2017 mock trial of Lee Harvey Oswald. He follows many of the late Los Angeles prosecutor's techniques throughout his book. For example, he asks, "Why would the conspirators do such a thing as plant CE 399?" Ignoring the fact that with a panel as throughly biased and corrupt as the Warren Commission, "conspirators" did not exist, and therefore their motives did not either.
Yet in spite of believing in CE 399 as a genuine exhibit, Wagner does not buy the Magic Bullet. Which is kind of incredible, for more than one reason. Read both reviews and you will see how a self-proclaimed layman caught himself in a trap. Not wishing to be part of the Commission's Magic Bullet tomfoolery, he himself believes something that is just as silly and absurd.
