These words are found, with slight variations, in a different part of the book depending on the edition:
European edition, May 1964
These words conclude the Preface:
“Let each citizen with information to impart to the Commission bring that fact–however unimportant it may seem–to the investigating body our new President appointed. We need many candles to dispel the shadows. Let us not flinch from what we may see there. Kennedy’s assassins were less strong than those who wish for a continuation of the policies he instituted. If this were not so, they would not need now to conceal their guilt. Once they have been identified, they will hold no more power that can hurt us.
“For it is not light that we must fear–it is the darkness.”
Thomas G. Buchanan in May 1964 in the U.K. edition of Who Killed Kennedy?
American edition, November 1964
The book was revised for the American edition to include, among other changes, a commentary on the Warren Report which had just come out a few weeks earlier. These words are the final ones of that revised edition:
“Neither is the ability to tell the truth a sign of weakness. […] For we are not dishonored as a nation by attempts to find the murderers among us, but by our attempts to hide them.
“It is not the light that we must fear; it is the darkness.”
Thomas G. Buchanan in November 1964 in the U.S. edition of Who Killed Kennedy?
