Real controversies and conspiracies, and well-documented crimes committed by a government whether in the present or the past.
Currently, there is a "new" theory put out there by author Lamar Waldron that Bobby Kennedy HIMSELF may have played a MAJOR role in covering up the obvious evidence that there were multiple shooters and a conspiracy. The late General Al Haig is on film explaining that EVERYONE KNEW that Castro was behind Oswald shooting the President....and that Bobby and others EXPECTED this might happen because of the December 1st 1963 Bobby Kennedy plan to kill and overthrow Castro that was in the works. Bobby was afraid Castro might get "tipped off" to the plan and get JFK FIRST !! Haig even claims he was TOLD that Oswald WENT to Cuba, but, Haig was instructed: " you NEVER heard this".
According to Waldron, a "cover-up plan" ALREADY EXISTED in case JFK was murdered in order to prevent the outraged American public DEMANDING an attack on Cuba....which would have immediately led to nuclear war with the Russians, who STILL had missiles, soldiers and tactical nukes on the island. This supposedly explains Kennedy ADMIRER Earl Warren going along with the effort to put all the blame on Oswald, no matter WHAT the testimony or evidence was.
If all this were TRUE, it would explain Hoover ENDING the FBI investigation in Mexico City which was SUCCESSFULY tying Oswald DIRECTLY to Castro's intelligence officers and even him receiving MONEY from them.....Hoover didn't WANT anymore evidence...evidence that could LEAK and start a WAR !! It would explain the alterations of JFK's wounds....the necessity for a SECRET,military autopsy, and the BURYING of Sibert and O'Neill's FBI autopsy report.PLUS, it would explain Bobby Kennedy NOT taking control of the investigation....something the most AGGRESSIVE Attorney general we've ever had WOULD HAVE DONE !!
However, I don't buy it...and after time had passed....neither did Bobby....he had been FOOLED !! , and he KNEW IT !! THAT is why he wound up DEAD, TOO!!
...it WASN"T Castro. The TRUTH is that the CIA and the Mafia in 1963 were ONE AND THE SAME !! If ONE group was involved, SO WAS THE OTHER !! THIS is why Ruby was involved AND all the others who were MURDERED as time went along. In the 1970s, when John Roselli contacted Earl Warren and other mob witnesses were scheduled to appear before the HSCA, this partnership was SEVERED.....you just KNOW it was the CIA who put bullets around the mouth of Sam "Momo" Giancana, who chopped up Roselli into pieces in a barrel, who staged the "suicide" of George DeMohrenschildt !! There could NEVER be allowed another "Joe Valachi" style PUBLIC televised hearings like RFK did in October 1963 to reveal the truth. THEN, the CIA took CONTROL of the HSCA and helped WRITE its final report !!
Whatever records eventually DO come out in the future,they will have been thoroughly SANITIZED by loyal operatives at Langley, and will NOT embarrass any powerful political family.
Why the communists killed Kennedy?
The media's love affair with Fidel Castro apparently outweighs their love for President John F. Kennedy and his Camelot era. Otherwise, the communist role in the Kennedy assassination would be prominently noted during the 50th anniversary coverage of the JFK assassination.
Assassin Lee Harvey Oswald was a communist member of the pro-Castro Fair Play for Cuba Committee and, after his arrest, tried to reach Communist Party USA attorney John Abt to act as his counsel. "Before Mr. Abt could accept or reject the bid, Mr. Oswald was shot and killed by Jack Ruby," The New York Times noted.
William J. Murray writes in his book, My Life Without God, that his mother, atheist Madalyn Murray O'Hair, was a communist who was ordered to report to an office of the Fair Play for Cuba Committee and destroy any references in the files to Oswald's involvement with the group.
Oswald's Russian connections are sometimes noted in the anniversary coverage, but treated as inconclusive, or even as evidence that the Soviets could not possibly have killed Kennedy because their connection to Oswald was too well-known and too many fingers would point to Moscow as the culprit!
"Oswald was a supporter of Soviet-backed Cuba," CNN reports. But it then quotes an amateur researcher named Dave Perry as saying, "We know Oswald was in the Russian embassy in Mexico City. We even know who he talked to. But we don't know what was said. Then a few weeks later, he shoots Kennedy."
In fact, as noted by former FBI agent Herman Bly in his book, Communism, the Cold War, and the FBI Connection, Oswald met with a Soviet KGB espionage agent connected with KGB Department Thirteen, which was in charge of assassinations. Blyhad gone to the U.S. Embassy in 1965, on assignment for the CIA, and reviewed its files on Soviet personnel in Mexico City.
Yet, Perry assures CNN that the Soviets were not involved. "The Russians would never have ordered Oswald to kill Kennedy because of his well-known links to Russia and his pro-Cuban sympathies," Perry says. "Russia's leaders knew they would have been the first suspects if they'd engineered an assassination by Oswald. It would have been an act of war, which could have triggered a nuclear attack."
On the contrary, the possibility of a nuclear war, coming so soon after the Cuban missile crisis, is why the communist connection to Russia and Cuba would be played down. Bly writes, "...I believe the heads of the FBI, CIA, and President Johnson wanted the Oswald case brought to a conclusion as fast as possible as they did not want another crisis with the Soviet Union so soon after the Cuban missile crisis."
Oswald's well-known communist connections help explain the plot and the communist cover-up.
The Soviets tried to mask their connection to Oswald by publishing through a KGB front company, Marzani and Munsell, the book, Oswald, Assassin or Fall Guy. The book was dedicated to Mark Lane, whose book, Rush to Judgment, blamed right-wingers for the Kennedy assassination.
This KGB disinformation campaign was called "Dragon Operation," an effort to shift blame for Kennedy's murder away from the communists.
The KGB's Mitrokhin archive shows indirect Soviet support for Lane, considered "the most talented of the first wave of conspiracy theorists researching the Kennedy assassination." Soviet funds were funneled to him through an associate, the book says.
I.F. Stone, the so-called maverick left-wing journalist later exposed as a Soviet agent, also joined the effort to blame the Right.
"For 15 years of my life at the top of the Soviet bloc intelligence community, I was involved in a world-wide disinformation effort aimed at diverting attention away from the KGB's involvement with Lee Harvey Oswald. The Kennedy assassination conspiracy was born – and it never died," says Ion Mihai Pacepa, the highest ranking intelligence official ever to defect from the Soviet bloc. Pacepa wrote the book, Programmed to Kill: Lee Harvey Oswald, the Soviet KGB, and the Kennedy Assassination.
As we have pointed out, the former Romanian intelligence chief documents that Oswald was recruited by the KGB when he was a U.S. Marine stationed in Japan and that, after defecting to the Soviet Union, he came back to America three years later for the express purpose of killing Kennedy. Even though the Soviets, for their own reasons, subsequently tried "to turn Oswald off," Oswald went ahead with the plan and was already "programmed" by the communists to kill Kennedy...
