The assassination of Robert F. Kennedy : a searching look at the conspiracy and cover-up, 1968-1978 by William W Turner( Book )

13 editions published between 1978 and 2006 in English and held by 1,150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Around midnight, shortly after claiming victory in the California presidential primary on June 5, 1968, Senator Robert Kennedy walked into a deadly spray of gunfire. Immediately the Los Angeles Police Department concluded that the assassin, Sirhan Sirhan, had acted alone. The FBI conducted a parallel inquiry and concurred. And the vast majority of the American people accepted their opinion. In this book -- mysteriously suppressed on its initial publication -- former FBI agent William Turner and investigative reporter Jonn Christian expose evidence that Sirhan did not act alone. Based on more than ten years of intensive research, Turner and Christian raise serious questions about RFK's murder: What was the virtually apolitical Sirhan's motive? Why, if Sirhan was standing in front of his victim, were the fatal wounds in the back of Kennedy's head? Why were there too many spent bullets (some the wrong size) for Sirhan's gun? Did the LAPD discredit witnesses, try to make them alter their stories, and destroy key records? Was Sirhan, in fact, a "Manchurian Candidate," programmed through hypnosis either to kill Kennedy or divert attention while others did the job? The Assassination of Robert F. Kennedy makes the case that the murder of RFK, and the subsequent police and government investigations, bear all the hallmarks of the conspiracy surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy and the resulting Warren Commission. It is a fascinating and chilling reexamination of the tragic events that undoubtedly changed the course of American history

The Cuban connection : Nixon, Castro, and the mob by William W Turner( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In April 1959, Fidel Castro toured the United States at the invitation of the American Society of Newspaper Editors. Though he was wary, Castro entertained some hope of establishing a rapprochement with Washington. But after being snubbed by President Eisenhower and receiving a less-than-cordial reception from Vice President Richard Nixon, Castro got the strong impression that US intentions toward his new Cuban government were hostile. In The Cuban Connection, former FBI agent and investigative journalist William Weyand Turner examines the fateful meeting between Castro and Nixon and the murky connections that existed between official Washington, the CIA, and organized crime in Cuba. Based on firsthand interviews with many of the key players involved in Cuban-American relations of that era, plus thorough background research, Turner raises a host of disturbing questions. Before the ouster of the Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista by Castro, why did Vice President Nixon often socialize at Havana casinos with his Cuban friend Bebe Rebozo? How was the rabid anti-Communism of the Eisenhower administration, especially its instant dislike of Castro, connected to its cozy relationship with the former mob-controlled dictatorship? How did all of this set the stage for the Bay of Pigs fiasco and, ultimately, the Cuban Missile Crisis and the JFK assassination? In a vivid narrative, The Cuban Connection provides insider information that rarely reaches the public and that many in power never wanted the public to know."--Publisher's website
