“A remarkable story that changed the way I view the world.”—JAMES BRADLEY, author of Flags of Our Fathers
“Arguably the most important book yet written about a U.S. president … Should be required reading for all high school and college students, and anyone who is a registered voter!”—JOHN PERKINS, author of Confessions of an Economic Hitman
“The best account I have read of this tragedy and its significance … But don’t take my word for it. Read this extraordinary book and reach your own conclusions.” —OLIVER STONE, director
"Jim Douglass has unraveled the story of President Kennedy’s astonishing and little-known turn toward peace, and the reasons why members of his own government felt he must be eliminated. This disturbing, enlightening, and ultimately inspiring book should be read by all Americans. It has the power to change our lives and to set us free."—MARTIN SHEEN
“JFK and the Unspeakable is an exceptional achievement. Douglass has made the strongest case so far in the JFK assassination literature as to the Who and the Why of Dallas.”—GERALD McNIGHT, author of Beach of Trust: How the Warren Commission Failed the Nation and Why
“Once in a great while a book comes along that both records history and makes it. … An exciting work with the drama of a first-rate thriller.” —MARK LANE, author of Rush to Judgment
“Right now, I ask all of you—please please, read JFK and the Unspeakable! I cried all night reading it, and didn’t sleep a wink. It is a book that could make us stand up and change the world, right now. Maybe we can save the world before it blows up. Really.” (Yoko Ono)
"In JFK and the Unspeakable Jim Douglass has distilled all the best available research into a very well-documented and convincing portrait of President Kennedy's transforming turn to peace, at the cost of his life. Personally, it has made a very big impact on me. After reading it in Dallas, I was moved for the first time to visit Dealey Plaza. I urge all Americans to read this book and come to their own conclusions about why he died and why -- after fifty years -- it still matters.” (Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.)

Douglass is to be commended for shining a light on recent US history and in particular on one of its most tragic events... one that destroyed real peace initiatives and prolonged the Cold War for decades. Very revealing. The large-scale deception and unnecessary suffering the book uncovers could only be orchestrated by what Douglass aptly calls the "Unspeakable". This book is a great contribution to understanding a peaceful way forward.
Like Jim Marrs and many other amazing researchers, this author manages to expose
excellent information in a well flowing manner. It also manages to humanize and
show in great detail the wonderful qualities of JFK.
Recently, Oliver Stone added it to his own library. He is an expert in his own right,
although he didn't agree with everything the author had to say he publicly praised it.
A fine read if you are into JFK.
The crisis pitted JFK against his Government and isolated him completely as a "pinko". His own Secretary of State, his Ambassador to Vietnam, his military Chief of Staff and most others in the administration were resolute cold-warriors who were ready for more missile shocks. But JFK wanted an end to foreign wars, and to abolish nuclear weapons. As a direct result, JFK was killed --- and killed just two days after the CIA had killed President Diem in Vietnam. The result was the enormous folly of the Vietnam war, with America ripped apart.
Essentially, JFK fired Chief of Military Staff Lemnitzer (after he proposed several false-flag provocations of Cuba), and a year later Lemnitzer was NATO commander in Europe, and Kennedy was dead. Lemnitzer was a Jewish right-wing extremist of the kind who has become familiar to us. His team included Air Forcle Commander Curtis Lemay." He told a Senate hearing when asked why, with already enough nuclear bombs to reduce the Soviet Union to cinders, he still wanted more nuclear weapons: 'I want to see the cinders dance.' Clearly, a madman.
Those were the well-known lunatics in uniform. They were backed by hundreds of drones in suits whose oath to the CIA was foremost in their minds, and whose loyalty to the pacifist JFK faded when he tried to deconstruct the military-industrial complex.Read more ›
The author tries to end on a positive note in that knowledge is the first step toward making a change in the current situation and although he makes a valid point, the knowledge that people on conscience need to make a change in the current situation is either not sought by them or is blocked and discredited by the same forces that killed and covered up the murder of JFK. The CIA and the unspeakable (the rise of psychopaths to power) have had 60 years to infiltrate and position themselves to influence and control the media, elections, and every aspect that shapes not only the society of the United States but the world. We live in dark times and the murder of JFK looks to be the beginning of the end of America and, if these forces are not stopped, the world.
