About this Item

San Francisco. 1967. Ramparts. Paperback Edition. Browning Pages, Otherwise Very Good In Wrappers. 21. 120 pages. paperback. keywords:. inventory # 9363. FROM THE PUBLISHER - From the Introduction Ė ĎOur first inclination was to believe the Warren Commission. Along with the majority of Americans and a large plurality of the American press, we were awed by the absolute massiveness of the Commissionís 26 volumes. By the literal weight of the evidence, Oswald had to have murdered the President, alone, as the Commission found. It has been difficult to dislodge us of that conviction. We are not conspiracy-prone. And we were, frankly, unwilling to embrace the frightening extensions of the proposition that the Commission was wrong. The first manuscript seriously questioning the Commissionís conclusion came into our editorial rooms over a year ago. It was a reasoned essay by an established writer, but we declined to publish it at that time. We elected to withhold any comment on the assassination until we were convinced that the Commission had actually compromised the truth about the assassination. We are now certain of that. Beginning in January 1966, a team of Ramparts editors, aided by researchers and trained investigators, read, re-read, catalogued and analyzed the 26 volumes of the Warren Report. They traveled to Dallas a dozen times, and interviewed nearly 100 people throughout the country knowledgeable about the assassination. They have come to the conclusion that the Warren Commission has done the country an enormous disservice; that not only the odds but the evidence are against its conclusions; that the weight of evidence indicates the existence of more than one assassin. Indeed, there would seem to be two conspiracies. One was to murder the President. The other was to cover up the blunders of various federal and state agencies which made the assassination possible, and to present the public with a panacea. We do not believe the two conspiracies are related. We pray they are not. But as is becoming clear with so many things about the assassination, we just donít know. This uncertainty is traceable to the large amount of basic evidence relating to the Presidentís murder that is being withheld from the public.í Browning Pages, Otherwise Very Good In Wrappers.
