Skip to comments.LBJ: Kennedy White House killed U.S. ally (2003, WND)

Tapes support new book showing who really assassinated JFK.
Newly released tapes of President Lyndon Johnson's telephone conversations corroborate the central premise of an explosive new book that promises to completely reshape the debate over who killed President John F. Kennedy.
President Johnson believed what Richard Nixon always suspected...
The surreptitious recordings, released from the Johnson library in Austin, Texas, Feb. 28, offer this bombshell missed by the press, Rosen writes: The Kennedy White House did not merely tolerate or encourage the murder of its ally, South Vietnamese President Ngo Dinh Diem, but organized and executed it.
"Triangle" authors present compelling evidence President Kennedy was killed Nov. 22, 1963, as the result of a massive conspiracy between the CIA-installed government of South Vietnam, the French global heroin syndicate and the New Orleans Mafia.
The book is based on recently declassified federal documents, material supplied by the KGB, information from the Bonano crime family, documents obtained from a French court and the only interview done with a French witness previously only debriefed by the FBI and CIA.
In his Weekly Standard story, Rosen writes Johnson left little doubt of his beliefs about who killed Diem in a Feb. 1, 1966, call to Sen. Eugene McCarthy in which he complained about the Kennedy administration and its left-wing allies in the Senate, who had supported Kennedy's entrance into the war but not Johnson's continuance of it.
The document affirms that an international assassin had been captured by U.S. authorities in Dallas less than 48 hours after Kennedy was shot, and that instead of arresting him, those same U.S. authorities secretly flew the assassin out of the country to freedom.

There are so many differente theories out there.
Well, well, well... Probably because Joe Kennedy figured he could make more blood money somehow...
I wonder if we will ever know who did the deed. It certainly wasn't Lee Harvey Oswald. It is just about the greatest American conspiracy of the 20th century. There's also UFOs.
Well, the article is 4 years old....
LHO didn’t do it? Was he there on the scene with the rifle, or is this part of the conspiracy too?
Hmm. More grist for the conspiracy crowd.
On the other hand I saw a convincing recreation of the single assasin theory on the History Channel where a marksman recreated the miracle shot almost exactly as described in the Warren report.
I did so many searches because it was so old, etc.
This was new to me :
The authors also reveal a Mafia chieftain, who employed Jack Ruby and Lee Harvey Oswald’s uncle, confessed to federal officers he had been directly involved in Kennedy’s murder.
I’m willing to do a little suspension of disbelief if France can be pegged as the culprit.
Awe, 2003. I had my hopes up there for a second...
I guess LHO somehow figured out a way for the exit wound to be on the same side of JFK’s head that he shot from.
The CIA, the French Global herion syndicate and the New Orleans Mafia were SO SMART that they hired loser Lee Harvey Oswald...and told him to PRACTICE killing someone a few weeks earlier when he shot through the window of an Army general...Oh yeah....makes all the sense in the world.
Just because a lying crook like LBJ would think conspriracy gives it NO additional status...Most democrats see conspiracies in everything republicans do, in the CIA, etc....they just think that way.
I thought LBJ always broadly hinted he thought Castro did it and kept quiet about it while in the White House because he didn’t know whether the Soviets would back Castro militarily if we attacked Cuba. Of course, at that time, we didn’t know about the DOJ-CIA-Mafia plots to kill Castro either.
It was new to me , also.
So many conspeiracy theories, so little time.
The whole Kennedy bunch was always arrogant and overreaching. Poor dumb Ted wasn’t even worth killing, I guess.
Rumor has it that Karl Rove spoke to Lee Harvey Oswald and handed him a long, slim package wrapped in brown paper just as Oswald was arriving at work on Nov. 22, 1963.
If they missed the Lions Club connection it's a coverup.
Ditto. After that I have no time or patience for the conspiracy nuts.
...or maybe Joe Kennedy thought Ngo Dinh Diem was really Ngo Dinh Goldberg.
they figured keeping him upright would do more damage to the USA than putting him down. they were right.
There is nothing “miracle” about the shot. Getting those 3 shots into that target zone in that time is actually pretty easy, considering the target was hardly moving (almost no lateral/vertical motion relative to Oswald’s position & view) and well within 200 yards. “JFK Reloaded” lets you try your hand at the scenario, which shows it’s not hard at all.
Dude, Ron Jeremy didn’t do it.
I only used the term “miracle” because that’s what the conspiracy nuts call it. The History Channel show illustrated for me that the shot was not only feasible, they actually recreated the trajectory that theorists complain was impossible. Very convincing.
I also thought it was LBJ’s boys who killed Kennedy.
A Texan Looks at Lyndon: A Study in Illegitimate Power (Paperback)
by J. Evetts Haley (Author)
Publisher: Buccaneer Books (March 9, 1964)
Perhaps LBJ was trying to deflect attention away from his boys ?
And still missed it.
And still missed it.
Wow. I’m impressed with your research abilities. I frequently can’t find duplicate articles from a day before when I post!
Oswald did it. Case Closed.
They prolly thought they could do more damage leaving Ted alive. They were right.
It would have been poetic justice, of course, given that Kennedy replaced a South Vietnamese government that functioned with one that did not.
That is the first thing that came to my mind!

Why is this being posted in 2007?
Besides who cares who killed him.
Too many other things to be concerned about ... .
“Triangle” authors present compelling evidence President Kennedy was killed Nov. 22, 1963, as the result of a massive conspiracy between the CIA-installed government of South Vietnam, the French global heroin syndicate and the New Orleans Mafia.”...
You have company.
Only one problem with all the theories. Ruth Payne, a Quaker, and good friend of Marina Oswald, got Lee Harvey his job at the Depository. She heard about it from a friend who worked there.
So you would have to believe that she and the School Book Depository staff were also was involved in the conspiracy.
Lee Harvey Oswald was simply a kook who dreamed of being famous.
I suspect you’re right. He most likely gets orders with the full knowledge that a bullet might run as high as a dollar, so he does as he’s told. Pitiful old toad.
That’s the only “conspiracy” link that actually makes sense: Ruby’s murder/disposal of Oswald is what allowed ALL the conspiracy theories to begin.
Alternatively, it allowed every (real, potential, fake, and postulated) past connection between Oswald and (anybody) to be covered 6 feet under.
There may be new details here, but the Pentagon Papers revealed that JFK ordered the CIA to assassinate Diem. It was the single mistake that did more than anything else to lose the war.
It’s not a conspiracy theory, it’s a long admitted fact.
Not many people actually read the Pentagon papers back when the NYT published them, but I did, and I thought that was the most interesting thing in the whole publication. The press, naturally avoided talking about JFK, but pretended that the Pentagon Papers somehow proved that Richard Nixon was a scoundrel. Exactly why, they never made clear.
