From the Publisher

Released for the first time 16 years after his death, this startling autobiography by one of the so-called “three tramps” from the John F. Kennedy assassination reveals the details of Chauncey Marvin Holt’s many claims. Much mystery and suspicion still swirls around that fateful day in November 1963, and theories abound in nearly every form of media. But one of the major mysteries revolves around the three men spotted and later arrested in Dealey Plaza. Holt’s controversial confession to being one of the three tramps has a history of its own, and in his own words he delves into his unique and wild background and life. From his United States Air Force service during Pearl Harbor to his associations with the mob and the CIA, Holt discusses his experiences and encounters in great detail. From a man who truly lived a rare and unique life, the book explains the ins and outs of his associations with Lee Harvey Oswald and the assassination in this unique retrospective of a complex and occasionally dubious life.

An Easy Way To Avoid Foreign-Policy Mishaps

Coming every four to eight years, the transition of power between presidents represents the most acute period of vulnerability for the United States. From the moment a new president takes the oath of office, the incoming administration assumes responsibility for national security—the area of U.S. policy in which the executive branch has the widest authority. Only the president can send American men and women into battle, authorize covert operations, or, under the most extreme circumstances, approve the use of nuclear weapons. Preparing to become commander-in-chief is, therefore, a paramount pr

Obama Calls On Congress To Have 'Courage' On Health Care

Former President Barack Obama urged Republicans to be guided by a personal standard of ethics and integrity, not political avarice, as they forge ahead with plans to dismantle the Affordable Care Act — his signature legislation. Obama had refrained from weighing in on the bitter health care battle, but he broke his silence while accepting the Profile in Courage Award at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston on Sunday night. "I hope that current members of Congress recall that it actually doesn't take a lot of courage to aid those who are already powerful, already comfor
