Originally published in 1969, Post Mortem is a classic analysis of medical and ballistics evidence in the JFK assassination. Some of the documents collected and analyzed here by Harold Weisberg were suppressed for over twelve years, and Weisberg includes the original documents and pictures that the Warren Commission and the FBI didn’t want you to see. Included inside Post Mortem are:
Official documents the Warren Commission did not have and did not want
Scientific proof that Oswald could not have killed JFK
Top secret commissioner deliberations when they learned Hoover and the FBI had the Commission boxed in to prevent real investigation, and their decision to destroy that record
Proof of a conspiracy and how it was hidden by both the Commission and the FBI
Autopsy evidence, medical evidence, and ballistics evidence not previously known
This is the report of a decade-long investigation like no other, giving the real documentary proofs and telling how and where they were obtained. Combined with Weisberg’s many other publications on the assassination of JFK, the information revealed in Post Mortem is shocking and mandatory reading for anyone interested in knowing the truth behind the death of a president.
Harold Weisberg is the author of a number of books on the assassination of John F. Kennedy, including the Whitewash series, Oswald in New Orleans, Post Mortem, Never Again!, and Case Open. Weisberg was a journalist, investigator for the Senate Committee on Civil Liberties, and analyst for the Office of Strategic Services in World War II. He died in Maryland in 2002.
