A Lie Too Big to Fail: The Real History of the Assassination of Robert F. Kennedy by Lisa Pease
A Lie Too Big to Fail is a book by Lisa Pease, a longtime Kennedy researcher, that challenges the official narrative of the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy, the younger brother of President John F. Kennedy and a presidential candidate himself in 1968. Pease argues that the convicted assassin, Sirhan Sirhan, was not acting alone, but was part of a larger conspiracy involving the CIA, the FBI, the LAPD, and other powerful interests that wanted to stop Kennedy's progressive agenda and his potential withdrawal of US troops from Vietnam.
Pease bases her book on meticulous research of primary sources, such as eyewitness accounts, police reports, autopsy reports, ballistics tests, and court transcripts. She also draws on secondary sources, such as books, articles, documentaries, and interviews by other researchers and experts. She shows how evidence of conspiracy was ignored, suppressed, altered, or destroyed by the authorities; how witnesses were intimidated, coerced, or silenced; how the media failed to investigate or report the truth; and how the justice system was rigged to prevent a fair trial for Sirhan.
Pease also provides a historical context for the assassination, showing how it was connected to other high-profile murders and attempted murders of the time, such as those of President Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, George Wallace, and Che Guevara. She also reveals who likely planned and executed the assassination, and why they considered Kennedy a threat to their interests and agendas.
A Lie Too Big to Fail is a compelling and comprehensive account of one of the most tragic and controversial events in American history. It is a must-read for anyone who wants to know the truth about what really happened on June 5th, 1968 at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles.
The book has received critical acclaim from many reviewers and readers, who praised Pease's thoroughness, courage, and clarity in exposing the cover-up of the assassination. Some of the reviews are:
\"A Lie Too Big To Fail is an incredibly researched, brilliant piece of intrepid reporting and a massive contribution to the field of historiography. This is THE definitive work of the RFK assassination and it is no coincidence that Lisa Pease was the author to take on this monumental task.\" - Amazon.com review[^3^]
\"Ms. Pease has written a thoroughly researched work on the Assassination of Senator Robert F. Kennedy. She provides interviews of the witnesses as recorded shortly after the event. She then includes several of her interviews with these same witnesses years later. Ms. Pease has provided the documents from the State of California Archives regarding the LAPD, the LA Sheriffâs Office, and the FBI investigations. Her research includes that of the trial, guilty verdict and subsequent testing of Sirhan Sirhan in prison years later. Her research and documentary evidence prove that Sirhan could NOT have killed the senator as Sirhan was IN FRONT of the senator. All wounds to Senator Kennedy were received from the BACK as detailed in the autopsy made public. Also, the evidence proves that the bullets in storage could not have been fired by the gun Sirhan used. Here is a book that tries to verify each statement and conclusion with solid evidence. Most of this evidence has been hidden from the public for years. In presenting the story of the Assassination of Senator Robert F. Kennedy, Ms. Pease has provided a vital history of the 1950âs, 1960âs and that of the Central Intelligence Agency during the same time. This work should be in every public library and required reading for all high school and college students. Every adult should read this book within the next twelve months. A truly excellent work.\" - Goodreads review[^1^]
