Every five years, there's another book with more details that are usually strung together with flimsy thread and rely on interviews with "former intelligence operatives", etc. In other words they are usually good stories, but really short on hard facts.

Along comes a new one, which uses as its basis tapes from the LBJ White House that seem to prove the US engineered the assassination of President Diem, which resulted in Kennedy's assassination. This one is a little longer on fact, but all the details haven't yet been made public.

At the end of the day, here's the question. Unless someone in public life still living today was responsible for Kennedy's death, does any of this really matter? Or is it just an interesting story? We'll see when the book is published.
