The Kennedy assassination explored through two fascinating accounts

Many years ago I read the almost 900 pages of  Warren Commission Report on the assassination of President Kennedy. Some may argue differently, though I’m firmly of the opinion that it was by a lone gunman, Lee Harvey Oswald.

Priscilla McMillanOn the 50th anniversary of the assassination it’s easier to find information on the topic via the internet, sadly also about conspiracy theories.  A fascinating article and a video interview, provide first hand accounts of details surrounding the tragic event, surely the most valuable of resources.

Atlantic Monthly has an article  about the only person who knew both President Kennedy and Lee Harvey Oswald. Priscilla Johnson McMillan, who worked as a foreign policy adviser to Kennedy when he was a Senator, and while as a journalist in the Soviet Union, met Lee Harvey Oswald in her hotel who was trying to defect.

Filmmaker Erroll Morris, in the New York Times, interviews Josiah ‘Tink’ Thompson, author of a book on the Kennedy assassination, in which Thompson debunks the conspiracy theories around Louie Steven Witt, and why he was holding up an open umbrella while witness to the Kennedy assassination.
