    1. JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters is the most beautiful, most important, and most spiritually cogent book I have read in a decade. It deserves to be taught in universities throughout the country and reviewed in every major periodical. The book’s structure is sturdy and clear; the prose is one transparent, flowing stream; and the account of the murder’s origin and nature is strikingly broad in its good-faith inquiry. As a result, facets of the story are put in place – [...]


    2. Now (2013) that we are getting closer to the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination there seems to be an increased animosity between those who believe the conclusions of the Warren commission about Lee Oswald, the lone gunman, and on the other hand the ones who believe that JFK was murdered by a group of people who conspired and benefited from his death. I certainly am NOT a lover of conspiracy theories, but what makes this subject so interesting is that so far nobody has been able to present [...]


    3. Politics, History, Intrigue, and Mystery. JKF and the Unspeakable got to me in a way I didn't expect. Organizing facts in support of a JFK assassination theory is like ordering a meal at Alice's Restaurant. You can get anything you want. Still, I found this book both persuasive and deeply disturbing.The accuracy of tomes like these is dependent upon the author's use of primary sources. I didn't check them. One chapter had nine hundred and thirty-six footnotes. The others were as well documented. [...]


    4. An excellent step by step summary of events. I'm not sure I agree with some of the conclusions, but if you want one of the clearest written portrayals of events, this is it. The key is to see how JFK was changed in office. He ran on the missile gap, that we were behind the Russians, but once in office he realized he'd been fooled. The actual gap was the other way, which, in a way, made things more desperate for the Soviet Union.Most people don't know we had nuke missiles in Turkey and Italy, ver [...]


    5. This is a simply stunning book. I suppose if you were around to remember Kennedy's Assassination you will have clear views on whether the assassination was by a 'lone nut' or part of a wider and much darker conspiracy. James Douglass's interest was because he discovered Kennedy, in his final years, was moving sharply from Cold War Warrior to Statesman of Peace. This was the main reason he was killed. Douglass, a campaigner for peace, puts together a very compelling case as to why certain powerfu [...]


    6. This author, James W. Douglass, is a non violence activist and Christian theologian, one time professor of religion at the University of Hawaii. 'JFK and the Unspeakable', copyright 2008, is a profound and deeply spiritual journey along the Kennedy presidency, that, accompanied with a thorough and up to date knowledge of the assassination conspiracy genre, provides readers with 'back channel' insights that led to JFK's martyrdom for peace.I concur fully with Gaeton Fonzi's review of this book, w [...]


    7. “What kind of peace do I mean? What kind of peace do we seek? Not a Pax Americana enforced on the world by American weapons of war. Not the peace of the grave or the security of the slave. I am talking about genuine peace, the kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living, the kind that enables men and nations to grow and to hope and to build a better life for their children – not merely peace for Americans but peace for all men and women – not merely peace in our time but peace for [...]


    8. The sub-title to this book is "Why He Died and Why It Matters" and "He Chose Peace. They Marked Him for Death".This book was highly acclaimed when it came out in hardcover, and whatever your feelings are regarding John Kennedy, one should read this book, not for the person but what can happen when our military and intelligence establishments are not controlled.The book is well documented, and even though there are some gaps and unsubstantiated parts of the book, the author puts together a pretty [...]


    9. JFK and the Unspeakable Review on GoodReadsA heartbreaking book that shows--finally--why my favorite President was murdered 46 years ago. I began reading books about John F. Kennedy at a young age, but few have been assassination books. Although familiar with the various conspiracy theories, I never dug that deeply into the more gory and grisly aspects of the President’s last hours. But after reading “The Brothers” last year, seeing reviews about this book, and viewing the writer on YouTub [...]


    10. Anybody who gives this book less than five stars is a disinfo agent working for the government, or that person lacks brains. Douglass has brilliantly revealed the sickening details about the Coup that most thinking Americans today know killed Kennedy. Douglass knows what happened to Kennedy, why it happened, and why it is important today. And he knows--as do most intelligent Americans --that Lee Oswald was carefully manipulated to become the scapegoat. He outlines how it happened. Everything. He [...]


    11. I read this as my 3rd book in a series of 3 about the assassination. I found it to be a great finale. It is thoroughly researched and all-encompassing. The author makes a pretty straight-forward case: JFK "saw the light" and began communicating privately with Kruschev and Castro about long-term peace. He was ready to get out of Vietnam. He was ready to do whatever he could to end the Cold War and to dramatically diminish the power of the Pentagon, and the CIA in particular, while working towards [...]


    12. As you read this book, a deathly cold and deepest sadness pervades the room as you realize just how formidable the wall against progress is. I didn’t witness the assassination and don’t hold a full-time job investigating it and so can’t say what really went down that day but, aware of what humans are capable of doing to each other, the plethora of suspicious incidents chronicled in this riveting presentation certainly raises distressing red flags. Nevertheless, this book is primarily about [...]


    13. For well over a year after I purchased James W. Douglass’s book JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters, I delayed opening it. In a strange way, I feared having my worst suspicions about the circumstances surrounding his death confirmed. Once I finally begin reading, however, I quickly became caught up in a masterfully told, and scrupulously researched, tale of alternating darkness and light. I recommend this book to all who wish to understand why JFK was murdered, by which web [...]


    14. Really should be 3 1/2 stars - I couldn't honestly give 4 here as it got so very dense at times.First of all, yes, it is a "conspiracy book", but so well laid out that a reader would need a super-glued shut mind (think: Pee Wee Hermann and the "I can't hear you!" scene) to accept Oswald pulling it off on his own (if at all). The autopsy scene, with non-medical military honchos telling the doctors exactly what they could, and could not do, (such as investigate obvious entrance wounds from differe [...]


    15. When you view the piece of home movie film taken by Abraham Zapruder, understanding the relative positions of Oswald and the President, your gut tells you, "Something is amiss". No, it screams, "WAKE UP!!"But when you move forward to read and find out exactly what isn't right, the flood of books by "Oswald Did It" shills and crazed nuts claiming shooters in storm drains, in the limosine and in the rafters beneath the underpass serve only to obfuscate the truth. At this point, many throw up their [...]


    16. There have been dozens of books written about the JFK assassination, but this one is particularly unique and noteworthy. This is far from being the first book to argue that JFK was killed by Cold Warriors in the CIA and/or Pentagon. The main thing which makes this one stand out is Douglass' presentation of and emphasis on the big picture. His command of the details of the case (timelines, bullet trajectories, eyewitness accounts, film, photos, audio recordings, autopsy reports, X-Rays, etc.) is [...]


    17. This book is a well-written account of the events and circumstances that are likely at the heart of the JFK assassination. Shocked at how closely the world had come to the disaster of nuclear annihilation during the Cuban missile crisis Kennedy escalated his efforts to reach out to both the Soviet Union and Cuba with the hopes of ratcheting down the cold war tensions and ultimately moving toward world peace. This put him increasingly at odds with his own government, particularly the Joint Chiefs [...]


    18. This sounds like just one more conspiracy theory book, but it's not. The distinguished historian, theologian, and antinuclear activist James Douglass has kept both feet solidly on the ground in this investigation. Beginning with thoughts by Thomas Merton (this work was long suppressed) and others -- as well as documentation that has either not been available or has not been assembled in the years since the Warren Report -- he makes sense of many otherwise unreconciled facts. For a truly jarring [...]


    19. Read it for a book club. Tedious reading, detailed, author jumps around a lot and repeats himself as if he wants to make sure the reader gets it. It is about the conspiracy theory behind Pres. John F. Kennedy's assassination. The author combines lots of resources for his information and leaves no doubt that many people united to kill JFK. It was good to read just to settle once and for all that there was a conspiracy. Amazing.



    20. JFK and the Unspeakable is one of the best books I have ever read. It is difficult to summarize it in a review, and the conclusions it reaches are overwhelming in their impact. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of books about the JFK assassination, and the many conspiracy theories. I have read several of them, and I thought I had a pretty good grasp of what happened and why, but this book encapsulates everything better than any other I've read. JFK was clearly not a saint, and to some extent [...]


    21. First of all I have to say that I was somewhat reluctant to even add this book to my list, just because if you're even partly convinced by its contents you have to wonder if your name will end up on some sort of list just by talking about it. Of course just the fact that I purchased it would probably already have earned me a place on such a list, so what the hell. . .I've read many accounts of this event and from pretty much the very beginning have been convinced that the official story doesn't [...]


    22. Not only presents monumental proof President John F. Kennedy was murdered in a plot orchestrated by the CIA--with the support of the Secret Service, the FBI, the Dallas police and sheriff's departments, the Army, Navy, Air Force, congressmen, senators, the Chief Justice of the Supreme court, and Vice President Lyndon Johnson--but why he was killed. He was killed because if he had lived, he would have not only stopped the Vietnam War, but stopped the Cold War: he was secretly negotiating with Kru [...]


    23. Douglass is not a historian but he has done his research. I doubt anyone really thinks that Lee Harvey Oswald killed JFK - or anyway they don't think he was a "lone assassin". Douglass makes the case that Oswald was the "patsy" set up by the National Security State (CIA, Military/Industrial Complex, Military) who, at the time, were intent on winning the Cold War by turning it hot preemptively. They are still interested in keeping the power that they (industrial/financial/corporate) have amassed. [...]


    24. This book which makes the case that our own CIA and Military Industrial complex assassinated Pres Kennedy. Why because he was working toward world peace, an end to the cold war, a legitimizing of Castro's Cuba, ending the Vietnam War, and refusal of nuclear first strike on the Soviet Union and Cuba during the Cuban Missile Crisis.We learn of the many back door channels being opened up between Castro, and Khrushchev to end hostilities and move toward World Peace.We learn of the Warren Commission [...]


    25. This book is in one word, unprecedented. A book every American citizen should read. Douglass gives us an unobstructed view of Kennedy's presidency and the many difficulties it faced. With painstaking detail he illustrates through documented facts and events during that time how President Kennedy struggled for peace against the Cold Warrior mentality within his own government. It gives readers a frightening look at the types of operations agencies like the CIA are permitted to run with seemingly [...]


    26. one of the best books on the JFK assassination and what led up to it. lots of new information and eyewitness testimony that you may not have ever heard before. covers the back channel conversations between Kennedy and Kruschev - and just how close we came to nuclear war. the joint cheifs at the time felt that 20 million american lives lost was acceptable in order to carry out an act of nuclear genocide against the soviet union. plots against JFK in Chicago and Florida. 2nd "Oswald" arrested and [...]


    27. Many people have reviewed this book in detail, so I will not. It is comprehensive, and thoroughly researched and referenced. If you have a problem with the view that things in our government and society are not what they appear to be on the surface, then don't read this book. I have never believed the official version of JFK's death, so for me this book was very interesting, and filled in lots of history during a time period when I was too young to care about what was going on in the world.


    28. Simplemente magnifico, JFK eligió paz en pleno apogeo de la guerra fría, con la presión encima del Establishment Militar de la mayor potencia del mundo. Eso es valentía, coraje y sobretodo amor por el prójimo.Superb book, as Sergei Krushchev, son of Premier Nikita K. would said later about JFK "I think if Kennedy had lived, we would be living in a completely different world". Well I think that's definitely true, he chose peace and not to be blinded by our differences.


    29. This book is remarkable and so thoroughly researched and referenced that it cannot credibly be dismissed. Anyone who reads 20th century history should consider this a "must-read". For that matter, so should anyone who thinks they understand the events leading to Kennedy's death, or who thinks they understand the relationship between the intelligence agencies and the rest of government.
