1. Investigative reporter Philip Shenon wrote a book called “A Cruel and Shocking Act” in which he studies the Warren Commission’s investigation of the JFK assassination:


The destruction of evidence begins within hours of the president’s death. President Kennedy is assassinated on a Friday. On Saturday night his autopsy report is pushed into the fireplace by the Navy pathologist. Several hours after that, FBI agents in Dallas shred a handwritten note that Oswald had left for them a few weeks before and flush it down the toilet. Then several hours after that, Marina Oswald, Oswald’s widow, puts a match to photographs that show her husband holding the assassination rifle. And that’s just the first weekend of evidence destruction; it goes on, and on, and on in the weeks that follow.
