Today in History for Sept. 27: Release of The Warren Report

September 27, 1964: Release of The Warren Report.

"From the very beginning, the Powers that Be have treated the Warren Report as if it is the word of God, come down from on high, etched in stone.

Later, he would tell Walter Cronkite that he never believed in the lone gunman theory." - George Bailey, "The Sum Of All Things."
