I was pleased this week, and surprised, to see this AB Journal opinion piece suggesting organized crime leaders conspired to have John F. Kennedy assassinated. The writer even references the authors I referenced awhile back on the blog, Waldron and Hartmann.
It's been 50 years this month since JFK was murdered in Dallas. I was in 9th grade gym class at the time the killing was announced.....they sent us all home from school that day. I watched the murder of mob stooge Lee Harvey Oswald by gangster Jack Ruby live on black and white teevee as well.
The JFK assassination was most likely the result of a conspiracy, Lee Harvey Oswald the expendable fall guy for the conspirators. The mob bosses Giancana, Marcello, and Trafficante have been identified by multiple researchers as the most likely conspirators. They had motive, the assets and a now-known connecton wth the CIA. If you start with those three names, throw in Jack Ruby, and take it to the Google with patience...you might be surprised what you might learn, or unlearn.
What I found interesting, and new to me, this week, however, is this JFK "wanted" poster from 1963. Click over and take a look and then come back. That poster appeared in Dallas on utility poles a couple days before JFK's murder. What's important to note here is the wording on the poster.
WANTED for TREASON
THIS MAN is wanted for treasonous activities against the United States:
1. Betraying the Constitution (which he swore to uphold):
He is turning the sovereignty of the U.S. over to the communist controlled United Nations.
He is betraying our friends (Cuba, Katanga, Portugal) and befriending our enemies (Russia, Yugoslavia, Poland).
2. He has been WRONG on innumerable issues affecting the security of the U.S. (United Nations - Berlin wall - Missile removal - Cuba - Wheat deals - Test Ban Treaty, etc.)
3. He has been lax in enforcing Communist Registration laws.
4. He has given support and encouragement to the Communist inspired racial riots.
5. He has illegally invaded a sovereign State with federal troops.
6. He has consistantly appointed Anti-Christians to Federal office; Upholds the Supreme Court in its Anti-Christian rulings.
Aliens and known Communists abound in Federal offices.
7. He has been caught in fantastic LIES to the American people (including personal ones like his previous marriage and divorce).
As many bloggers have been writing recently, it's quite interesting to hear today's right wingers claim JFK as their own when, in fact, conservatives hated Kennedy with a passion, as the wanted poster wording makes plain.
The wording from the poster should sound familiar as well. Replace the word "communism" on the poster with "terrorism" and it reads like today's conservative charges against Barack Obama. Check that....Obama is criticized today for being a communist AND a terrorist sympathizer. Conservatives are so allergic to change, they can't even come up with any new attack-line material in 50 years.
For those who have interest in the JFK assassination I recommend starting with the book by Waldron and Hartmann, "Ultimate Sacrifice." Go here to read an excerpt which includes the plot to kill JFK in Tampa on the 18th of November, 1963.
If you're looking for richer investigative soil, however, just Google David Atlee Phillips and/or David Morales and follow where those names lead.
The tip off that the official government-approved conspiracy theory from the Warren Commission was suspect was the fact that evidence surrounding the murder was locked away and kept secret for 75 years. ...with many critical documents today still classified and hidden from the American people. Why hide stuff unless there is something government leaders didn't want us to see or find out about?
Who knows? Maybe in another 75 years, Americans may learn a bit more about how 9-11 could have happened. The 9-11 Commission's conclusion that it was just a huge "collective failure of imagination" may, some day, seem as far-fetched as the Magic Bullet Theory.
