Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy

Recorded on May 18, 2007

The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

In Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy, Vincent Bugliosi - best-selling, non-fiction crime writer and prosecutor of Charles Manson - reviews in minute detail the facts surrounding that fateful day in November 1963.  Polls continue to reveal that over 75 percent of Americans believe there was a conspiracy behind Lee Harvey Oswald; some even believe Oswald was entirely innocent. 

 

Such conspiracy theories can be destructive of democracy and serve to undermine the foundation and faith in those institutions that are basic to a secure and stable civil society.  In this text, based upon thorough scholarship, reason, forensic evidence, and a re-examination of key witnesses, Mr. Bugliosi sheds fresh lighton this American nightmare and the self-destructive nature of lingering and all too prevalent conspiratorial concepts.
