Tom Weiner delivers a commanding performance of retired army officer and professor John Newman's nonfiction audiobook Oswald and the CIA, a meticulous examination into the government's role in President John F. Kennedy's assassination. His powerful voice gives weight to the allegations that the CIA tampered with Lee Harvey Oswald's file - removing key documents - prior to the killing. Newman cites primary sources such as ex-agents and secret records to back up his claims, and takes listeners into the clandestine inner workings of the CIA.
From the acclaimed author of JFK and Vietnam comes a book that uncovers the government's role in the Kennedy assassination more clearly than any previous inquiry. What was the extent of the CIA's involvement with Lee Harvey Oswald? Why was Oswald's file tampered with before the assassination of John F. Kennedy? And why did significant documents from that file mysteriously disappear? Oswald and the CIA answers these questions, not with theories, but with information from the primary sources themselves - ex-agents, officials, and secret records. To look at the Oswald file is to look at the most sensitive CIA operation of the Cold War. The story is as alarming as it is tragic; the lies and manipulations it reveals led directly to Kennedy's murder. Oswald and the CIA is a gripping journey to the darkest corners of the CIA.

"Very detailed study"
Very good study but probably too detailed for the average reader. The last quarter of the book is really where the book comes alive. Before that, the author takes a lot of benign stuff and attributes conspiratorial relevance to them where really none exists.
