Originally published in 1968 in France under the title L'Amerique Brule (America Is Burning), Farewell America quickly became a best-seller in Europe in 11 languages. It was a specific accusation against the real assassins of John Kennedy and, by extension, Robert. Borrowing heavily from published critics of the Warren Commission Report, the book describes the roots of the Cold War, the linkage between large corporate and banking interests, the ever-growing American intelligence apparatus, and the international petroleum cartels that were lined up with a bevy of military brass and Mafia chieftains against President Kennedy.

Farewell America advances the idea that the president was killed by a combination of these powerful interests, which wanted an immediate end to the political, economic and social changes that JFK wrought. Called "The Committee, " it coordinated all aspects of the murder, from setting the time and place of the shooting to the recruitment of the gunmen -- possibly professional assassins selected from the ranks of Cuban exiles embittered by Kennedy's failure to intervene militarily at the Bay of Pigs -- and the coverup of the conspiracy afterward. The bottom line was that enemies of JFK collaborated with the CIA to erase the perceived Kennedy threat.
