Very good post. I agree that we shouldn't assume that Johnson ordered it, but it's obvious he was instrumental in carrying it out. JFK made a lot of enemies and Hoover was wacky when it came to the civil rights movement, thinking that civil rights leaders were part of a communist conspiracy, so I think that they all got together and decided to do it for America, in their eyes, Johnson more for himself. Johnson had the connections to do the job, what with his way of operating when it came to Henry Marshall.
