4/4/08 Air America Radio, The Thom Hartmann Program, at 2pm (Eastern): The first public news about "Legacy of Secrecy," the authors' follow up to "Ultimate Sacrifice." The fall 2008 book will contain important new revelations about Mafia confessions to JFK's murder, the involvement of two of those men in Martin Luther King's assassination, and Commander Almeida's high profile in Cuba since Fidel Castro stepped aside.

2008, 2007, 2006: "Ultimate Sacrifice" is the subject of a documentary which airs on the Discovery Channel and the Discovery-Times Channel. Titled "Conspiracy Files: JFK Assassination," it was produced by NBC in early 2006, before the new trade paperback could reveal Commander Almeida as JFK's coup leader. However, the documentary still gives a good overview of the Mafia's role in JFK's assassination and features an interview with former Secret Service Agent Abraham Bolden.

CNN, "The Situation Room," 11/23/07: Lamar Waldron appeared on CNN to discuss the information about Abraham Bolden in "Ultimate Sacrifice." The story and a link to the CNN video are also available at Raw Story (rawstory.com).

9/07: Lamar Waldron appeared in a German Public Television special about JFK's assassination, "Der-Kennedy-Mord." Also appearing in the special
were Sen. Edward Kennedy, Gore Vidal, and former RFK Mafia prosecutor Ronald Goldfarb.

2007, 2006: Gore Vidal--who knew both JFK and RFK--devoted two chapters of his most recent autobiography, "Point to Point Navigation," to
"Ultimate Sacrifice" and JFK's assassination.

Sept. 2006 to Feb. 2008: dozens of radio and newspapers stories about the new revelations in the trade paperback of "Ultimate Sacrifice."
