Mark Lane has published another book with a libelous title (My Indictment of the CIA in the Murder of JFK) that more or less challenges the CIA to go to court, and it appears that the CIA has decided to ignore the challenge in the hope that the information in these books won't be widely disseminated. Just as Lane believes it is a cardinal sin to bore a jury, he keeps the reader's attention riveted to the pages of his books. It matters not that this book was first published over 20 years ago.

Plausible Denial book. Lane’s main focus has always been on the CIA’s possible involvement in the assassination. No one can now deny the CIA’s complicity in a cover-up of information regarding Oswald and the facts of the case, but proving the involvement of The Company in the actual assassination is much more difficult.

Mark Lane tries to simplify it somewhat in this book, with some likely and inevitable distortions. I have to ask in reply, "Why is that such a far-fetched idea?"

CIA Kennedy assassination conspiracy theory. LibraryThing members' description. The explosive facts surrounding the CIA's involvement in President Kennedy's murder, presented for the first time in paperback. In 1966, Lane was therst to expose the flaws in the Warren Commission's official report, and his bestselling book Rush to Judgment revealed that Oswald could not have acted alone. Now he continues his ground-breaking investigation.

It was Mark Lane who found a CIA conspiracy behind the Jonestown massacre (he was there) in 1979's The . Well-reasoned at every point, Lane's convincing report sounds like the last word on the assassination-but for an alternate scenario, see Mark North's Act of Treason (below).

It was Mark Lane who found a CIA conspiracy behind the Jonestown massacre (he was there) in 1979's The Strongest Poison and FBI complicity in 1977's Code Name ""Zorro"": The murder of Martin Luther King, Jr. This time out he offers his most damning version yet of CIA wrongdoing.

The assassination of President Kennedy in 1963 continues to be shrouded in mystery and controversy. In Plausible Denial, Mark Lane, the author of Rush to Judgment, the provocative and bestselling critique of the Warren Commission, reveals startling evidence about the CIA’s involvement in a plot to murder the president.

In 1978, when a small magazine ran a story by CIA renegade Victor Marchetti linking ex-CIA operative and convicted Watergate burglar E. Howard Hunt to the assassination, Hunt sued for defamation. Lane signed on as defense counsel for the publication, and set out to prove the truth of the allegations against Hunt and the CIA. Lane’s investigation uncovered a web of conspiracy that involved anti-Castro Cubans, Watergate conspirators, and public officials at the highest levels of the intelligence community. The forewoman of the jury, Leslie Armstrong, stated that “Mr. Lane was asking us to do something very difficult. He was asking us to believe that John Kennedy had been killed by our own government. Yet when we examined the evidence, we were compelled to conclude that the CIA had indeed killed President Kennedy.”

Meticulously documented and compellingly written, this book makes public the contents of this curiously unpublicized trial, the only jury verdict directly related to the theory that the CIA was involved in the assassination.

This is a classic among JFK assassination writing. Mark Lane was the New York defense attorney who wrote "Rush to Judgment," calling into question the Warren Commission's approach and conclusions. "Rush to Judgment" reads like a lawyer's brief. Likewise, "Plausible Denial" is essentially the detailed account of a trial that he litigated in the 1980s, and while it is only a civil action for defamation, the book is absolutely mesmerizing. It's a fantastic read from cover to cover.

Mark Lane acts as the defense counsel for "Liberty Lobby, Inc.," a right-wing conspiracy-theory interest group that was frequently sued for publishing outlandish stories. Its publication, "Spotlight," published an article written by a former CIA officer alleging that another CIA officer, E. Howard Hunt, was in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963. Hunt sued Liberty Lobby and won a $650,000 judgment in the trial court, but on appeal, the case was remanded to the trial court and retried due to erroneous jury instructions the first time. Lane takes on the defense in the retrial, and famously wins.

But Lane does more than simply overturn the prior court ruling. He actually makes the second trial into an investigation of whether Hunt was a conspirator in the assassination of JFK, and this is where the book's merit really lies. Lane has little sympathy for his own client, but he does know a lot about E. Howard Hunt, his background, and the various spies and lawyers Hunt calls as witnesses in depositions and at trial. In astoundingly expert fashion, demonstrative of a crystal clear mind, Lane lays it all out in this amazing book. Read it.

Mark Lane has published 2 books (including this book) with the names of Kennedy's assassins. It's shocking that there is not more interest in investigating and prosecuting JFK's assassins based on the evidence in this book. Mark Lane has published another book with a libelous title (My Indictment of the CIA in the Murder of JFK) that more or less challenges the CIA to go to court, and it appears that the CIA has decided to ignore the challenge in the hope that the information in these books won't be widely disseminated. US citizens live in a pseudo-democracy at best, and maybe the Matrix at worst, where reality TV shows are a substitute for reality.

Lane was smart. Very smart. He was also in my opinion an American hero. But beyond any fascination this book may hold for a reader interested in learning of facts suppressed by the power structure concerning the assassination (not inconsiderable!), the other surprise about the book is the insight Lane gives into how a trial lawyer formulates strategy. When reading just remember that he's not a prose stylist but a very clear-minded fellow who gets where he's going in the same way Arthur Murray taught you to dance. Plus he can be quite amusing.

This is the second volume of holy writ in the Bible of JFK assassination research.

If you have not read this book "Plausible Denial" and the first volume of JFK assassination research scripture "Rush to Judgement" you will forever have an incomplete understanding of what truths are known about the assassination of JFK.

Conversely, if you read these two seminal works by Mark Lane you will gain a sufficient understanding of the confirmed, corroborated and irrefutable facts of the case to be forever disabused of the mainstream establishment myth.

Mark Lane's books clear the cerebral palate and allow the reader to freely exploit common sense and reason to begin to imagine what might actually have happened on November 22, 1963.

Recently published worthwhile JFK assassination research books by Stone, Nelson and Fiester are immeasurably better digested after having first consumed "Plausible Denial" and "Rush to Judgment".

Nothing compares to these two works by Mark Lane in identifying the fundamental argument for exculpating Oswald and indicting the direct or indirect involvement of the CIA and several other actors in the large scale conspiracy to assassinate JFK.

Mark Lane ranks with John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine and Alexander Hamilton in his contribution to the cause of liberty and reminding the Republic to stand vigilant in checking the government to safeguard the rights of individual citizens.

The 4 and 5 star reviews that precede this review are deficient and incompetent. Plausible Denial and Rush to Judgment deserve summary 10-star ratings.

Just as Lane believes it is a cardinal sin to bore a jury, he keeps the reader's attention riveted to the pages of his books.

It matters not that this book was first published over 20 years ago. Like Rush to Judgment published nearly 50 years ago Plausible Denial is a gripping edge-of-your-seat account of stranger-than-fiction facts implicating extra-constitutional "intelligence" agencies and nefarious partners-in-crime in murdering the president of the United States for "national security" reasons.

Written with much detail, a lot of deposition questions, and Trial Q and A. Might be dry to some people, I enjoyed it.

Alot of disturbing info on E Howard Hunt (along with G Gordon Liddy) such as how they set up an attack on Ed Muske's wife at the 1972 convention, which may have led to Muske dropping out. And plans to sabotage the Air conditioning at the Democratic convention in Miami. Hiring attractive Prostitutes to get information on Candidates, I.E. Richard Nixons Dirty Tricks Dept.

Some of the testimony was quite shocking, as some of the usual suspects were tied together, being placed at the same place at the same time. in the end, E Howard Hunt got caught in his own lies, and lost his lawsuit, but all the JFK conspiracy information that came out was mesmerizing.

This book was very interesting, convincing, and thought provoking. It did read like it was written by a lawyer, and was slow going at times. Not really a leisurely read.
