At the height of the Cold War, JFK risked committing the greatest crime in human history: starting a nuclear war. Horrified by the specter of nuclear annihilation, Kennedy gradually turned away from his long-held Cold Warrior beliefs and toward a policy of lasting peace. But to the military and intelligence agencies in the United States, who were committed to winning the Cold War at any cost, Kennedy's change of heart was a direct threat to their power and influence. Once these dark 'Unspeakable' forces recognized that Kennedy's interests were in direct opposition to their own, they tagged him as a dangerous traitor, plotted his assassination, and orchestrated the subsequent cover-up.

Douglass takes listeners into the Oval Office during the tense days of the Cuban Missile Crisis, along on the strange journey of Lee Harvey Oswald and his shadowy handlers, and to the winding road in Dallas where an ambush awaited the President's motorcade. As Douglass convincingly documents, at every step along the way these forces of the Unspeakable were present, moving people like pawns on a chessboard to promote a dangerous and deadly agenda.

I can't stop listening. I knew the explanation of assassination didn't make since. Now I understand what really happened and why.

Too long and repetitive. The claims of the shot that killed Kennedy came from the front are very confusing when the autopsy photos clearly show an enterance wound at the back of his head.

Should be taught in every High School class in America.

Comprehensive overview of the events, foreign policy, and actors of the time that set the stage for the murder of a democratically elected president. Sad for what could have been if Kennedy had lived and for the tragic events that followed in SE Asia. Frightening to see the parallels in foreign policy over the last decades.

This is an awesome book. Most negative reviews seem to be from folks who didn’t have the attention span to get through the first 6 chapters. Shame, because this is a huge expose on the assassination if you take the time to read it.

Very interesting and well presented. However, there were many statements made saying "more on this later" and then a lot of repetition, almost word for word. I think the book could have been about 25% shorter
