Who Killed JFK?
By Roger Stone Every November 22nd brings a wave of new conspiracy theories regarding the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Indeed, former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura airs a TV special this week claiming George H.W. Bush was involved in the conspiracy to kill JFK- ludicrous in view of the fact that Bush was not yet a Congressman or CIA Director and was just of the verge of losing his first US Senate race in 1964. Real power alluded Bush until Nixon sent him to the CIA and significant power illuded him until Reagan selected him for Vice President in 1980. We don't know who did murder Kennedy. We have pretty well established it was not Lee Harvey Oswald. We have also established that it certainly was not Lee Harvey Oswald acting alone. The Government-sponsored version in the Warren Commission requires there to be three shots fired. Given the time sequence, a fourth bullet requires a second shooter- and therefore a conspiracy. Thus Arlen Specter's contorted single-bullet theory in which a single bullet changes direction and strikes both JFK and Governor John Connally. JFK assassination theories have spawned a cottage industry but a handful of facts can be sifted out and make it pretty clear that when Oswald yelled "I'm a Patsy" he wasn't kidding.
- Eye-witnesses put Oswald in the Cafeteria of the Texas Schoolbook Depository at the precise time the first shot hit JFK.
- Five separate witnesses swore affidavits that they saw a rifle barrel and a puff of smoke above a fence near the famous grassy knoll. One of the five testifies he saw a man remove a rifle bag from a station-wagon bearing a Goldwater bumper sticker (!), remove the carbine and fire over the fence. All five witnesses die mysteriously within a year of their sworn testimony.
- A telex sent to J. Edgar Hoover from the FBI's Dallas office identifying Oswald as the shooter is time stamped two minutes prior to the actual shooting and prior to the identification of Oswald.
- Someone identifying himself as Lee Oswald approached several air-charter services at Red Bird Field, a private airport to inquire about renting a private plane for a future flight to the caribbean in the days prior to the Kennedy murder. Shown Oswald's photo by FBI agents, all say that the man in the photo is not the man who approached them.
- The carbine recovered from the Book Depository and held aloft by a Dallas police officer in an iconic wire photo is not of the make or type the Warren Commission said was used to kill Kennedy.
- Numerous witnesses who gave statements to the Warren Commission were shocked to find their statements altered in the Commission's final report, in many cases stating the direct opposite of what was said. Complaints bring visits from FBI agents with dire warnings that objectors should stay silent "for their own good".
