Rush to Judgment Mark Lane

Mark Lane names names & reveals the "who and the why" behind the JFK assassination.

The assassination of President Kennedy in 1963 continues to be shrouded in mystery and controversy.  Now, for the first time in almost thirty years, explosive new evidence reveals much about the CIA’s involvement in an event that devastated the entire nation and irrevocably altered the course of history.  In Plausible Denial, Mark Lane, the author of Rush to Judgment, the provocative and bestselling critique of the Warren Commission’s official report on the assassination, makes startling revelations about the CIA’s involvement in a plot to murder the president.

Nearly two decades prior to Oliver Stone’s JFK, Executive Action, a fiction film, used actual news footage from the tumultuous events of 1963, never deviating from the historical record regarding the facts surrounding the assassination.

Produced in 1973 as a major motion picture starring Burt Lancaster and Robert Ryan,  Executive Action was described as “the most controversial movie of the decade.”  As directed by David Miller, it thrillingly depicts a daring plot to change the course of US policy by eliminating the man responsible.

 The original screenplay, written by Mark Lane, was based upon his work in investigating the assassination.

“Everything we show is supported by evidence” stated Miller, adding that co-stars Lancaster and Ryan were initially skeptical about the conspiracy idea, but were persuaded by the weight of factual material.  As Executive Action tensely builds toward its climax, it poses the real possibility that a complex conspiracy was the cause of those fateful events in Dallas on November 22, 1963.
