What do you think?
I think it was the mafia. Ole Joe Kennedy bought and paid for that election with the help from the mafia, and then the Kennedys turned around and started screwing them.
#2 I think it was Johnson, he wanted the presidency that bad.
Here's my theory on the Kennedy assassination:
Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone with either support from the mob, Castro, or both. The mob wanted to get Kennedy back after cracking down on them despite the campaign contributions. And Castro probably wanted payback for the Bay of Pigs (directly ordered by Kennedy).
Of course there is also the theory that Johnson had him taken out because he thought Kennedy was screwing up and going to lose reelection and it was the only way he could become President.
Not sure how viable this choice is but ive heard it before.
I've heard this before Avatar, if you see my second choice is Johnson. I belive Johnson was one crooked power hungry sonofgun. The three choices I picked are so hard to come too a conclusion, because all three make sense. But I chose the mafia, because as my thoughts are as stated above, Joe Kennedy bought a lot of help from the mafia, to win this election,(joe was as big a crook as the rest of um), and I belive the Kennedy boy's then turned around and betrayed them. I have to wonder if the Kennedy boys knew papa was involved with them? Thats my conspriracy thoughts.
Like the author of the article, I'm generally not much on conspiracy theories. Most of them can easily be proven wrong, but the Kennedy assassination is certainly not one of them. Every possible answer to every question opens a slew of other questions.
I've looked pretty deep into the Kennedy assassination, reading testimony from police officers and eye witnesses, looking at time lines, looking into Oswalds past. I've even been to the old Texas Schoolbook Depository and walked around on the Grassy Knoll. While there was probably a lone gun man, I don't believe for a second that it was a random act of violence from a single demented man. One of the few things we do know for sure is that it was Oswalds gun, but I'm not even convinced Oswald was the one firing it that day.
I've got my theories, but it would take a long time to go into all of it. Maybe Cuba was involved in some way. Frankly, it would make some sense. One thing I do believe is that someone involved was able to infiltrate either the Dallas city government, the Dallas Police Department, or possibly both. There are far too many little things that fell into place, and part of it would match up with a pre-determined plan to plant a theory of multiple gunmen, such as Fabián Escalante talked about. According to a man I talked to in Dallas that worked in the area at the time, the fence that is by the infamous Grassy Knoll was put up just three days before Kennedy's visit. A brand new fence with boards missing. Pretty interesting.
Another interesting bit I came across was about J.D. Tippitt, the police officer that Oswald was accused of killing a short time after the Kennedy assassination. Tippitt was buried less than 24 hours after his death. Seems like someone was in a hurry to get the guy in the ground for some reason.
A lot of odd things surrounding that day. We may never be able to answer all the questions.
I heard, on a documentary about Jackie, that she had intelligence about who dunnit. It is sealed and to be released to the public after the death of the last Kennedy kid (that would be Caroline, right?)
My only opinion about JFK's murder is: I definitely do not think LHO acted alone. No idea otherwise. A president is such a large public figure that a lot of people could have wanted to take him out.
I wish Ruby hadn't shot Oswald.....so soon anyway. I believe him when he said he was a patsy, be interesting to hear what else he had to say.
Johnson ordered it as he had the 'Hots' for Jackie............
Castro had something to do with it. And Bobby Kennedy. Both were involved with the Bay of Pigs invasion.
If we ever liberate Cuba or if Cuba ever becomes a free country, then we'll know for certain.
