I remember the day President John F. Kennedy got shot like it was yesterday, though I was just a kid.

It was probably even more life-changing for most Americans then alive than 9/11 was for a current generation of Americans. The facts have been argued for decades.

I learned more about the assassination from this week’s guest than I have over the last 50 years.

Robert Tanenbaum was the deputy chief counsel for the House Select Committee on Assassinations, and chief investigator for the investigation, between 1976 and 1978. He interviewed many of the principals personally and speaks as authoritatively as anyone I have ever heard on the subject.

Will we ever know the truth? Tune in and draw your own conclusions.

This is a re-broadcast from a Think Tank episode in 2013.

But with the release of the latest batch of Kennedy documents and the 54th anniversary of his assassination, it is timely of that dark day in Dallas that changed the outlook of so many Americans permanently.
