American distrust of government, polititians and authority in general can be traced back to the time of the official investigation into the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and the suspicion generated by the publication of the Warren report, the government's official version of this infamous murder.In the last ten years there has been much research into the exact events surrounding Kennedy's murder and how it was so successfully covered up. JFK: Say Goodbye to America contextualises this debate, coming to a shocking conclusion. According to new information gathered and assessed by the author, JKF was murdered on orders emanating from the 'alternative' government - the - Establishment - which eased the concerns of 'big business' and which Kennedy was in the process of divesting of power in favour of promoting a government which put the people and their needs first. The President's new priorities won him few friends in the government and Mtthew Smith suggests that it was no coincidence that most of his policies were dismantled in the 18 months immediately following his death. Indeed, his policy to withdraw from the early situation in Vietnam was dramatically changed within hours. President Lyndon B. Johnson ordered an investigation into JFK's murder which soon emerged as biased, inaccurate and misleading, highlighting for many Americans the end of a golden era and a farewell to the country they knew.
