Tonight (Tuesday, 4/4), at 7:00 p.m., Lamar Waldron will be speaking at the MacNally-Robinson Bookstore, on Prince St. (at Mulberry) in New York City. He will be discussing his superb new book, Ultimate Sacrifice, which he wrote with my good friend Thom Hartmann.
is a brilliant, liberating book about the Kennedy assassination. Based on 17 years of meticulous research, it finally tells the startling truth about that epoch-making crime.
Here’s the blurb I posted on my blog:
Here’s some good news: there is no longer any mystery as to JFK’s assassination. In their new book, Ultimate Sacrifice, Lamar Waldron and Thom Hartmann make it wholly clear that Kennedy was murdered by the Mafia, whose chieftains had infiltrated Jack’s and Bobby’s covert
plan to spark a coup in Cuba and have Castro killed. The mafiosi–specifically, Carlo Marcello, Johnny Roselli and Santo Trafficante–knew that that operation was so sensitive that any news about it could have touched off World War III; and, therefore, that Bobby would do anything to keep the whole thing secret. In the two weeks prior to Nov. 22, 1963, those hoodlums had already tried to have JFK killed in Chicago and in Tampa. Both efforts were logistically identical to the assassination that occurred in Dallas.
This is not supposition or speculation, but a solid case, based on copious documentary evidence and numerous firsthand accounts by close participants in the Kennedys’ top-secret venture (code-named AMWORLD).
In other words, the book explodes two antithetical mythologies: the preposterous cover story floated by the Warren Commission, and the paranoid master-theory that has launched a thousand books, and made Warner Bros. wealthy through the movie JFK. Thus this extraordinary book not only sheds abundant new light on the central trauma in our modern history, but in so doing it also sets us free.
I’ll be there to introduce Lamar, who will speak, take questions, and sign copies of his book.
