And again, if there were businessmen/oil men who wanted him dead, you would have to say the FBI, Secret Service and CIA are in on the coverup. You'd have to also say the doctors at Parkland are part of the coverup. The Warren Commission, and all the investigators are in on the coverup. How many hundreds (thousands?) of people are we talking about? And no one has said anything for 40+ years? There's too many moving parts by too many disparate people spread over decades to be believable.
Actually, I do not believe that the assassination had official approval from the FBI, CIA or the ONI. There are plenty of part time operatives connected with the government who act out on their own all the time using their connections to implement whatever task they have in mind. Good example? The mayor of Dallas at the time of the assassination was Earle Cabell. Guess who his brother was? General Charles Cabell, Deputy Director of the CIA until John Kennedy forced his resignation in early 1962 over the Bay of Pigs fiasco. General Cabell's subsequent hatred of JFK became an open secret in the political arena. Coincidence that Cabell's brother just happened to be mayor of the city where Kennedy is murdered 11 months later? Perhaps. Perhaps not but this is an excellent example of having "connections" in the right places. Plus, I think it very odd that Allen Dulles was appointed to chair the Warren Commission----a man who also had been fired by JFK and liked him about as much as Charles Cabell did.
My own feeling is that the assassination did not have official approval, yet after it happened, agencies like the FBI and the CIA were more or less forced to cover it up, lest other clandescent operations were exposed in the process, exposing intelligence connections that they preferred to keep quiet. Inadvertedly, there were alot of people who were compelled to partake in the cover-up, but who would have had no foreknowledge of the event and were not participants.
As for the bullets, if there was no wound in the back of the neck, then how could the frontal wound be a wound of exit? The bullet wound in Kennedy's back was too low to exit out his throat, and then hit Connally several times and then end up in almost pristine condition when it was found later. Then you've got the bullet that grazed James Tague and the bullet or bullets that blew practically the top half of Kennedy's head off. That's 4 bullets, minimum, right there.
Two of the Secret Service men in the car behind JFK's told Ken O'Donnell, a top aide of JFK, that they originally stated that they were both sure that shots came from behind the fence on the Knoll. When asked why this was never put in the Warren Commission, they said they were told they were wrong, that they only heard echos, etc. etc., so they caved and answered exactly how the Commission wanted them to.
I also find it very odd that in the subsequent years, JFK's brain mysteriously vanishes off the face of the earth. The official answer lays the blame at the President's brother, Bobby, saying he wanted it destroyed rather that be put on display......Of course, this was laid out in the House of Representatives Select Committee on Assassinations in 1976......eight years after Bobby himself had also been assassinated so he could not defend himself against the accusation.
And if our government can pull off this coup so brilliantly, why do they do everything else so badly?
Actually, they didn't pull it off so brilliantly. If they had, there would not be all the inconsistencies that there are in the whole sorid tale.
