Richard Belzer and David Wayne set the record straight about the many witness deaths tied to the JFK assassination. For decades, government pundits have dismissed these “coincidental” deaths, even regarding them as “myths” and “urban legends.”
The authors were initially unsure about what to make of these “coincidences.” After all, events don’t “consult the odds” prior to happening, they simply happen. Then someone comes along later and figures out what the odds of it happening really are. Some of the deaths seemed purely coincidental—heart attacks, hunting accidents etc. Others clearly seemed noteworthy: witnesses who did seem to know something and did seem to die mysteriously. Hit List is a fair examination of the evidence of each case, leading to (necessarily) different conclusions.
The findings were absolutely staggering. Some cases were clearly linked to a clean-up operation after the murder of President John F. Kennedy, while others were the result of other forces.
