Synopsis

"Written in 1974 Murder From Within will show what actually happened to President Kennedy, the consequences of his murder, and what action Americans can take to protect their institutions from further internal assault.

The problem of usurpation from within and illegitimate and bloody transfer of power is as old as political history itself. Betrayal from within from the leaders own inner circle dates all the way back to Julius Caesar and Jesus Christ. Centuries ago, several Roman Emperors were killed by their own Praetorian guards.

This plot, which involved only a handful of high officials and a few Secret Service Agents, called for President Kennedy to be maneuvered to Dallas and executed in public. His body was then forcibly removed from the control of the Dallas Coroner and flown to Washingon, D.C., to a military hospital. There, autopsy findings were supervised to foil a later investigation and implicate a scapegoat.

The plot required a high probability of success. Therefore, it was self-contained: carefully recruited members of the Secret Service- the President’s guards- murdered him. The portability of a motorcade allowed the assassins to escape and the evidence to remain under their control.

With their obvious cover as guards, the Secret Service could ensure that the planning would result in the replacement of one chief executive with another who now had the power to cover the crime up.

The scapegoat for the crime was placed near the motorcade by being told to look for work at locations on one of two likely parade routes. Once he had a job, the motorcade was planned to pass in front of where he worked. In this way, it would appear that he had found his position by accident. To plan the route first and then place the scapegoat in position would raise serious questions in an investigation about his prior knowledge.

Seven years in the making Murder From Within shows exactly and in detail how a small high level group within Kennedy’s own Cabinet betrayed him and killed him to benefit an ambitious Vice President determined to become President no matter what."

About the authors The authors approached this subject beginning in the 1960s from two different perspectives. Fred Newcomb, a self-employed Advertising Art Director, had just completed his now famous study about how the notorious Oswald backyard photos were faked. Perry Adams, political scientist and editor of Probe, an investigative newspaper, was looking for a solid story about the Kennedy assassination. The two met and worked together on newspaper and magazine articles. Eventually they accumulated so much material and pursued two paths. First, as good citizens, they approached authorities with the data as a basis for a new investigation and prosecutions. They made the contents of this book available to Congress and law enforcement, but to no avail. Consequently, they pursued the second path: write a book for the public to bring this matter to a conclusion. Several offers were promising but fell flat from fear and controversy. The book was truly “too hot to handle”. The manuscript gathered dust. Years later after Perry Adams had passed away and Fred Newcomb was ailing in a convalescent home in Los Angeles Fred’s son Tyler and daughter Valerie took it upon themselves to publish the book through this publisher AuthorHouse. This is their gift to their father and his late partner.
