Holland persists in his theory that Garrison came to believe the CIA was involved in the JFK assassination solely because of an article in the Italian newspaper Paese Sera. Despite the entry in a Life reporter's diary that Holland cites as his proof, it is simply not believable that a man with Garrison's conservative background--two decades in the military, former FBI agent, district attorney--would jump to such a radical conclusion solely on the basis of one foreign article.
