By L. Fletcher Prouty
The actual tale of the guy who encouraged Oliver Stone's JFK—now with a brand new foreword via Jesse Ventura.
Colonel L. Fletcher Prouty, the previous CIA operative referred to as “X,” bargains a history-shaking point of view at the assassination of president John F. Kennedy. His theories have been the foundation for Oliver Stone’s debatable motion picture JFK. Prouty believed that Kennedy’s demise used to be a coup d’état, and he backs this trust up along with his wisdom of the protection preparations at Dallas and different tidbits that just a CIA insider could recognize (for instance, that each member of Kennedy’s cupboard was once overseas on the time of Kennedy’s assassination). His dialogue of the elite energy base he believes managed the U.S. executive will scare and enlighten somebody who desires to comprehend who was once relatively in the back of the assassination of John F. Kennedy. forty black-and-white illustrations

Such is the memory of man—at best a tricky one, per Orwell. ” There is about us a wall, alone, beyond which our conscious mind will not let our unconscious go. That margin, however, fades with the quotient and fashion of time because as time changes so do our mind-sets. The loss of fear allows the mind to drop its censors and think the unthinkable. Such a golden moment. We all know it. The exciting liberation of our own thought process. It is that access point to history which every filmmaker, poet, artist, seeks entry to.

Was Stanley Kubrick right in his revelation of the warrior ape in 2001, throwing the bones of the slain into the air, becoming the spaceship baby of tomorrow?
