98. Newman's awesome. He may've saved the country.
Newman's a hero. His books on "JFK and Vietnam" and "Oswald and the CIA" are must-reads.

As a prof at West Point, he wanted to find out about the period before the "Pentagon Papers." In his work, Newman discovered NSAM 263 (National Security Action Memorandum) that indicated JFK ordered combat forces out of Vietnam after the 1964 election. He also found NSAM 273 that documented how LBJ reversed course the week after the assassination, meaning the US would commit whatever support was needed to guarantee the government of South Vietnam.

Newman's speaking at this super-conference on the Warren Commission in Washington this weekend. Here's a link:
