“Who Killed JFK?” has always been the wrong question, James Douglass is telling us, because it comes to focus on the shooters.

But the system is very relevant… The relation above all of JFK to his government is at the heart of it. The nature of the question will take us so far into what Thomas Merton called ‘the unspeakable’ that we’ll almost feel we’re lost in darkness as we’re seeing the light.
