Coup D'Etat: The Overthrow of an American President

Front Cover
Coup d'État: The Overthrow of an American President: is dedicated to all those who believe the real truth behind the JFK assassination has been ignored, or worse, covered up. This project is my attempt to answer three basic questions: Why was President Kennedy assassinated? Who benefitted? And who had the power to cover it up? Coup d'État makes the case that President John F. Kennedy was killed by four powerful forces with interlocking interests, all of which were being blocked by the President and his policies. The money and accompanying intensity behind these interests united shadowy conspirators in a complicated plot to decapitate Camelot and use a diversion to cover it up afterwards. It was a hostile takeover, a "putsch." In effect, it was the second American "revolution", the result being a violent overthrow of a duly-elected, legitimate government. It was a Coup d'État.
