Oliver Stone Interviewed on the Assassination of JFK

Academy Award-winning director Oliver Stone recently appeared on the Democracy Now! Global News Hour, discussing the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Stone was joined by the show's host, Amy Goodman, and Peter Kuznick, a professor of history who co-wrote the companion to "Oliver Stone's Untold History of the United States," Stone's recent series for Showtime.

In this interview Stone takes a look at Kennedy's legacy and conspiracy theories surrounding his death. Stone has been--and remains--an avid believer that official reports of the assassination are incorrect. His fascination with the story led, of course, to his controversial film J.F.K., which opined that Kennedy's assassination was the result of a political conspiracy.

You can view the video below or read a full transcript of the interview here. (A note of warning that descriptions of President Kennedy's injuries are graphic.)

For more of Stone's thoughts on the Kennedy assassination--and for reports from one of the doctors who treated the President--check out Trauma Room One: The JFK Medical Coverup Exposed, by Charles A. Crenshaw and J. Gary Shaw, which features an introduction by Stone.

Trauma Room One is available in various digital formats at reKiosk and in both hardcover and paperback at Amazon.
