Today marks the 51st anniversary of JFK’s assassination which is a day that will live in infamy. There are many conspiracy theories out there but it is just insane to believe the single bullet theory. It was obvious Oswald was a patsy but it is quite difficult to tell what really happened because facts are limited. The best theory that I have seen about this assassination was stipulated by Roger Stone in his book “The Man Who Killed Kennedy.” He paints a compelling picture revealing the involvement of LBJ in the plot. There is information that shows how ruthless he really was and ordered dozens of enemies and opponents to death. For example, his opponent to a seat in the Senate in the 1940’s was mysteriously murdered.
Stone gave many examples to reveal that LBJ was willing to kill to get his way. According to Stone, “He’s the lynchpin of a conspiracy involving others.” The mafia was angered with both JFK and RFK. Their father had mob ties and the mafia was instrumental in doing things to help them win at the polls. The mafia also hooked them up with women. Yet JFK and RFK turned around and sought out to wage war on organized crime. The CIA was also angry at JFK for botching the Bay of Pigs invasion and Texas Oilmen, whom LBJ was friends with, were unhappy with JFK’s new tax. LBJ was mad that he might not have been VP in JFK’s reelection campaign and therefore he has everything to gain Now that everyone had a motive they had to plan the assassination.
Many of these men did meet at a party the night before the assassination. Everyone seemed to have their own job. Unbeknownst to Oswald, who was involved with mafia, would take the fall. He actually worked at the Book Depository. Snipers were everywhere on the knoll, in a drainage ditch and up in the building. To make sure this worked LBJ had a contact in the Dallas police change the parade route to provide a clear shot. They planned it this way to make sure JFK didn’t get out alive. Stone seems to believe that the kill shot came from the drainage ditch but also tied the Depository sniper to Johnson’s supposed hitman Malcolm Wallace. His fingerprints were found by the sniper nest.
Oswald it seemed did not do much and sources claimed he was drinking a soda while all that happened. He got arrested because evidence pointed to him and framed him as the killer and didn’t help that he shot a cop. Jack Ruby was the final piece or patsy if you will. He periodically brought sandwiches for the police making it easy for him to get past the cops and into the basement. He silenced Oswald and prevented him from squealing about the assassination plot. Afterwards anybody who knew anything were often killed in mysterious ways. That’s why facts are not that available because conspirators were being killed. I guess it’s true that three can keep a secret if only two of them are dead. We may never know what really happened that day but Stone does present a compelling argument.
