The Men Who Killed Kennedy
This artfully constructed five-part series offers chilling evidence that American democracy has become a convenient lie; that a conspiratorial coup d'état removed a sitting president and then hid that fact from the American people. This sounds like the stuff of wild-eyed paranoia, but these filmmakers did their homework well--interviews include levelheaded witnesses, suspicious government agents, and Dallas cops present in Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963. Some of the "proof" (especially in Episode 2, "The Forces of Darkness") seems a bit far-fetched, but the sheer number of unexplained facts is riveting. An autopsy attendant describes a procedure botched by meddling Secret Service agents. A deaf-mute eyewitness shares his recollection of uniformed men hiding a rifle and leaving the site of the assassination unchallenged. Eisenhower's security chief, present at the shooting, discusses fatal safety lapses--as well as mysterious shots coming from the opposite direction of the Texas School Book Depository. District Attorney Jim Garrison points out that Lee Harvey Oswald, a Marine assigned to Russian reconnaissance, operated a "Communist" organization out of a government intelligence office. Senator Ralph Yarbrough, present in the motorcade, tells of Kennedy's order to recall the troops from Vietnam--an order rescinded by the Pentagon three days after his death. But the most powerful elements of this documentary are the most personal, as hardened cops confess to lasting nightmares, as senatorial investigators tearfully recall the moment they realized the official story did not match the facts, and as simple bystanders share their lasting grief at having witnessed the gory death of America's innocence. --Grant Balfour --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Part 10 obviously revealed too much and was soon ordered by some court not to be broadcast again.
It's deleted from the imdb, if you check Nigel Turner.
It's such a shame that people cannot even watch it and make up their own mind.
If the collection would at least offer the 9 available parts, I would have rated it 5 stars, but to release only 6 parts and not even in the chronological order that's really bad.
History Ch. this week. But although H.C advertised TMWKK:
The Final Chapter foe sale it has now been supressed.
Reason: "Legal Issues" ?!? Now Amazon is "Out of Stock" or
No Listing. Clue: Search on Barr McClellan.
You are getting only half the truth.
The lack of Secret Service protection of the president is appalling. The lack of documentation or "lost logs" is egregious at best. Why hasn't the Secret Service been held accountable? The only plausible explanation is that a conspiracy existed in which the organization was duplicitous on some level.
If you are not familiar with the assassination or this series, buy it! I have viewed it several times. Each time I become more outraged that something of this magnitude could have occurred. The medical and Secret Service information was enough for me to conclude a conspiracy existed.
The newest tapes "The Final Chapter" were equally amazing.
Information from Judy Baker regarding her affair with Oswald was very interesting. Her knowledge of New Orleans, cancer research, and Jackson State Hospital appeared credible. The information about alleged human subject cancer tests performed on Angola inmates at Jackson State Hos[ital was sickening. I have never seen this information presented anywhere other than this series. Information about LBJ wasn't that shocking to me. As a native of Louisiana, I can remember discussions that occurred at the time of the assassination and Shaw trial regarding LBJ. He wasn't perceived as an "honest broker", and many thought that he was involved on a deep level.
Great tapes!! If you are a history buff don't miss them.
I'm not a conspiracy nut; I just want the truth. On jury duty you're asked to decide what is true or not true based on the evidence and your experiences in life. Those of us old enough to remember the Kennedy assassination will probably never learn the absolute truth, but this video series offers the most plausible theory yet on what probably happened.
And the 1995 "sequel" chapter ("The Truth Shall Make You Free"), though also worthwhile and very disturbing, seems in places to be infected with some of that latter-day media mindset of 'well-if-we-have-to-admit-that-maybe-there-was-a-conspiracy-then-let's-make-the-Kennedy-brothers-seem-like-they-essentially-brought-it-on-themsleves', which I don't appreciate.
The recent "Final Chapter" was pulled from distribution and is not available for purchase because it implicates LBJ as complicit--- which caused an uproar and, in the mood of 2004, even very old information that would never raise the eyebrows of "students" of this subject, can get suppressed all too easily. (Until it's ever released, a seance with Madeliene Brown will have to suffice).
Nevertheless, despite what you may have heard "TMWKK" is a very serious, chilling documentary, if an imperfect one.

What's there to say about TMWKK that hasn't been said so many times before? This is one of the most ground-breaking documentaries of our time. Read morePublished on April 27 2004 by Jesse
