When you've read the Warren Commission Report [all 26 volumes, and several times at that] and every book published on the JFK assassination, then go back and re-read Epstein's book, it is really nauseating: Epstein is extremely detailed about situations and events which cannot be substantiated [such as the interrogation of Lee Oswald after the assassination, as not one single note or recording was kept during it], and skims over important items, such as Oswald's horrible marksmanship, et cetera. Everything is taken at face value, and witnesses are ignored [four witnesses placed Oswald at the TSBD cafetaria at the time of the assassination]. It is for some strange reason assumed that Oswald shot at Gen. Edwin Walker, yet no mention that Walker was forced to resign from the military by the Kennedy administration, was briefly institutionalized by AG Robert Kennedy after Walker's leading of armed and shooting militias illegally attacking the US Marshals at the University of Mississippi, nor Walker's several busts for homosexual lewd activities at public restrooms, which Walker pleaded guilty to? Epstein's acceptance of everything Warren Commission Report is another obscene item. No contradiction ever bothers Epstein nor is addressed. Oswald is both elected class president of his 8th grade class, but is also a truant and outcast? Too neatly written, to unwieldy a mess.
