(Getty Images) (Newser) – Film director cum pot-stirring historian Oliver Stone has blasted the official version of JFK's assassination as a "national fairy tale." To this day, "many key Americans in power are in total denial about this story," Stone told a group of students in Thailand. "They don't want to know about the possibility that he was killed by someone other than Lee Harvey Oswald." Stone's film JFK suggested a massive conspiracy linked to the CIA was behind the president's murder. The director was in Bangkok on a series of talks funded by the Vienna-based International Peace Foundation.
