Summary
A month before President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Special Agent James Hosty was tasked with investigating a suspicious young man named Lee Harvey Oswald. After shots rang out across Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963, and Oswald was arrested, Hosty became a scapegoat for government officials scrambling to evade blame. Then, as questions mounted, he became a central figure in countless conspiracy theories (later he was even mentioned in the Oliver Stone film JFK). Now, in Assignment: Oswald, Hosty sets the record straight with a full chronicle of his actions, experiences, and observations on the front lines of this harrowing national tragedy. With forthright candor and "high drama," Hosty recounts his interview with Oswald's wife, Marina, and his interrogation post-arrest, for which Hosty was present (The Wall Street Journal). He describes the way information was manipulated by government personnel on every level, from the Dallas police, the FBI, the CIA, and the State Department up through the Warren Commission, J. Edgar Hoover, Robert Kennedy, and Lyndon B. Johnson. Combining his intimate knowledge of the case with previously top-secret CIA files, Hosty provides an authoritative account of the assassination and the government's response to it
