JFK ASSASSINATION : 50 YEARS AGO November 22, 2013Posted by wmmbb in Modern History, US Politics.
The speculation, surrounding the assassination of President Kennedy in Dallas, now fifty years ago, is not surprising.
There is always going to be suspicion when the alleged culprit is in turned murdered. This assassination was followed by the murder of Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King, and John Lennon by lone gunmen. In President Kennedy’s case there is the Abraham Zapruder’s film:
Lee Harvey Oswald claimed he was a patsy. His assailant, Jack Ruby conveniently died from cancer in 1967.
People are still arguing about this assassination. So why did not the Warren Commission settle the matter? Professor Jerry Korth goes into detail and concludes in his recently published book, Coup d’Tat:
“President Johnson, aided and abetted by the CIA. conspired with and conscripted the Mafia to assassinate the President of the United States on Novermber 22, 1963.
The theory, if true, deeply undermines the what common, rank and file Americans believe. It violates every sacred canon that our country is transparent, open, civil country and governed by the rule of law. Instead it portrays the United States as little more than a banana republic where power, guns and mobsters, murder, deceit, corruption, hit men, and brazen coup d’tats determine the essential narrative of a peoples history”.
It seems fantastical that Lyndon Johnson would have played a part in President Kennedy’s assassination, or that he had a motive to do so, but apparently this is was Jackie believed. According to Cathal Derval writing in IrishCentral:
Jackie Kennedy believed Lyndon B Johnson was behind the 1963 assassination of her husband President John F Kennedy.
In the sensational tapes recorded by the First Lady months after the President’s death, broadcast by ABC, Kennedy revealed her belief that Johnson and a cabal of Texas tycoons orchestrated the murder of her husband by gunman Lee Harvey Oswald.
Kennedy, who later became Jackie Onassis, claimed that the Dallas murder was part of a larger conspiracy to allow Johnson to become American President in his own right.
Johnson, who served as a member of Congress, completed Kennedy’s term after the assassination and went on to be elected president.
Leading historian Arthur Schlesinger Jnr recorded the tapes with Jackie Kennedy within months of her husband’s death.
Who knew that the fossil fuel industry was deeply involved in American politics fifty years ago? (Along with all the other conspiracies, including the suggestions the Zapruder film has been tampered with.)
