The Warren Commission

To the Editor:

It is understandable that persons from foreign lands might consider the Kennedy assassination a “treasonous political conspiracy,” but it is indeed surprising that an American editor should entertain this thought. This latest in the series of Presidential assassinations seems the same as those which went before. All were acts of abnormal individuals; and none was considered a “treasonous political conspiracy.” [“The Warren Commission: An Editorial,” January.]

I do agree that the Warren Commission should examine and report on the federal agencies concerned, and on the role of the Dallas police.
