Kennedy, and his assassination-related books include: An Encounter with Evil : The Abraham Zapruder Story; The Kennedy Autopsy; The Kennedy Autopsy 2; and Regime Change : The JFK Assassination. FFF has also published JFK’s War with the National-Security Establishment by Douglas Horne (who served on the staff of the Assassination Records Review Board), and CIA & JFK : The Secret Assassination Files by Jefferson Morley (a former investigative reporter for the Washington Post). FFF has also held two conferences relating to JFK, which featured presentations by Oliver Stone, Jeffrey Sachs, Stephen Kinzer, Michael J.

I mention this because I'm finding it hard to locate an authoritative source to confirm this. There are many educational resources and blogs that also make this claim, but I've yet to find any academic literature (other than Chomsky's book here) or online archival materials that substantiate this claim. I don't disbelieve it, but I do find it odd that it's not easy to verify. If anyone has access to such evidence, please let me know.]
