Skip to comments.Donaldson on This Week on JFK Assassination: I'd Like to Ask Castro 'Did You Do It?'
Posted on 04/19/2009 9:14:22 AM PDT by UnalienablyRight
ABC's Sam Donaldson let a little of his inner-conspiracy theorist out this morning on This Week with George Stephanopoulos.
In a discussion of President Barack Obama's lessening the sanctions on Fidel Castro's Cuba, Donaldson began his analysis with one of a number a Kennedy-Truther notions that have been knocking around ever since President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963....
Another wild card in this crazy deck was Cuba's El Presidente, Castro. The theory being that Castro was upset with JFK's woefully planned and executed Bay of Pigs attempt at ending his nascent dictatorship, and therefore exacted his revenge by executing the 35th President.
Donaldson's buy-in for this house-of-cards game is apparently the Castro connection.

I don’t think Oswald did it, but I wouldn’t necessarily say Castro did it, either... :-)
But, really... will we ever know for sure?
Looks like the MSM is not impressed with ZERO/Clinton overtures to Castro and Cuba. First Matthews and now Donaldson.
Holy crap! Sam Donaldson is still alive???
I thought ol’Sam came off as clueless, even borderline delusional. Perhaps the dementia is kicking in. Soon he will think he is soon hosting “This Week”.
Right Sam. And even if he did have somethingf to do with it, now that he has a fellow traveller in the WH, do you really think he'd say "Not directly, but I provided blah blah blah to those involved." ??? dolt
Come to think of it...holy crap! This Week is still on TV???
Oswald did it....was he alone?
he was someones useful idiot.
There are a lot of mob second generation people in Chicago who believe the mob did it. How the manipulated or controled Oswald and then Ruby is hard to tell, but there was definitely motive there. The Mob and Teamsters helped JFK get elected and then he turned on them. This is a lesson that Zero knows and won’t make.
I obviously don’t know the answer, but I will give you odds. I think the probability is high that in was a KGB hit. Who the leg men were may remain a mystery. I think that Castro was an implementer. Time may tell the tale.
The evidence is conclusive that Oswald fired the shots, but I understand why people like to cling to more extravagent theories. And the leftwing media/entertainment complex feed those theories because they simply can’t accept that a communist loser like Oswald took down their big liberal hero Kennedy (who was not as liberal as he is portrayed, truth be told).
But for me, the big unresolved question in this case is whether Oswald acted alone. Was he part of a conspiracy? If so, did the goals of the conspiracy include Oswald’s assassination attempt on Gen. Edwin Walker on April 10, 1963, or did Oswald act alone in that? Gen. Walker was a prominent and outspoken anti-communist.
Even if Castro had something to do with Oswald, Donaldson is a fool for thinking he would admit it. Perhaps Donaldson’s idea is to have Castro deny it, and then the liberal media/entertainment complex can adopt the party line that Castro is conclusively innocent — after all, the hero of the left would never lie, would he?
I wonder if Mohair Sam remembers the big pop radio hit, “The Cuban Marching Song?” How about Cuba Libres? As I recall, that was a rum and coke with a twist.
For what it’s worth...I have been reading about the JFK assassination since 1966...
...here’s the answer...set-up by LBJ/Hoover through Ed Clark, LBJ’s personal attorney.
Mafia gunmen...hired to kill castro...it was turned on Kennedy.
Lee Oswald was an excretory little commie. An insignificant little man working a minimum wage job when one day he discovered the President would be driving right past his building.
The conspiracy theories surrounding the Kennedy assination are a tribute to the power of leftist propaganda. Even though they couldn’t deny his leftist affiliations - he’d lived in Russia and tried to immigrate to Cuba in 1963, they have still been successful at getting a vast number of otherwise reasonable people to believe that there was some vast conspiracy and that Oswald the leftist was either a helpless pawn or completely innocent. In so doing they have absolve themselves of one of the greatest crimes the left has ever perpetrated.
Oswald did it. He planned it. He carried it out all by himself.
No I don’t want to debate you.
Donaldson also showed this morning that as he's lost his mind.
Guess the kooks on FR will see this thread as another opportunity to spew nonsense about some JFK conspiracy theory. Oswald killed Kennedy. There was no conspiracy.
Yeah, who knew?
And he expects Castro to saw, exactly, what — “Yeah, I did it”? There appears to be no limit to the stupidity and naivete of Liberals.
You said — The evidence is conclusive that Oswald fired the shots, but I understand why people like to cling to more extravagent theories. And the leftwing media/entertainment complex feed those theories because they simply cant accept that a communist loser like Oswald took down their big liberal hero Kennedy (who was not as liberal as he is portrayed, truth be told).
I think it can be shown that Oswald was a double-agent for the CIA, and was able to infiltrate into the Soviet Union, under that cover. There’s evidence for there being a second “Oswald” which was used for “cover” to perpetrate the double-agent fraud on the Soviet Union and get the real Oswald in there. And then Oswald was working undercover to try and infiltrate the groups who were tied in with Cuba (Fairplay for Cuba or something like that), and trying to get intel on them (in New Orleans).
Also, there wasn’t time for Oswald to do the shooting *and also* to be seen where he was seen in the Texas Schoolbook Depository building. I think Oswald didn’t have a single thing to do with it and it was all a “set-up” in regards to him.
I do believe that Oswald was shot to silence him from telling the true story which would have exonerated him, exposed some of the CIA actions in what Oswald was doing (on some of those other things he was involved with). But, as far as the shooting, no..., I don’t think Oswald had a thing to do with it...
Sam’s back on the sauce, I see.
And then when Castro says, "No", Donaldson would say, "Okay, I'm good with that."
I’ll have to check it out then... thanks...
Only a complete fool would expect him to tell the truth now.
You are exactly right. This thread should be about Sam and anyone who saw him on this mornings program would have to agree he has lost his mind and should quietly “go into the good night”.
I am not sure that Oswald acted alone.
Oswald WAS a Communist at heart.
So, you have a Communist, Oswald, killing JFK.
You have a Muslim, Sirhan Sirhan, killing RFK.
You have liberals in love with Castro, in love with Communism, and unwilling to fight radical Islam -—
Even though Robert Kennedy and John F. Kennedy: WERE KILLED BY COMMUNISTS AND RADICAL MULIMS???
The liberal world view never makes any sense, does it?
I’m actually wondering about Lyndon Johnson, in regards to the Billie Sol Estes fraud, and Johnson having the “job done” in order to get rid of Kennedy because Johnson was going to be dropped from the ticket... LOL...
It was not apparently beyond Lyndon Johnson to do those sorts of things...
You said — The liberal world view never makes any sense, does it?
That’s why I’m considering the evidence for Lyndon Johnson being behind the killing of Kennedy... :-)
Why ask him anything? Even on his deathbed, Castro will lie through his teeth.
Sam Donaldson came up and joined our table.
Sam wanted a Kansas lapel pin. I handed him one. “I said, OK, as long as you wear it on the air.”
Sam said, “I can't do that, it might indicate a bias in my reporting.”
I took the lapel pin back.
A short time later, I saw Sam Donaldson, on TV, reporting from the Democrat Convention.
He was wearing an Arkansas lapel pin!
Sam Donaldson was the speaker at my college graduation. I believe he is probably a demon in human form and is therefore immortal. I base this on my up close view of his eyebrows and hairpiece.
Anyway, the end of the video linked above is rather interesting.
And..., as a follow-up here...
You were saying — I think Oswald did it.
Well, this proves, to me at least, that the “double-agent” disguise of Oswald (in that he was a Communist sympathizer) worked very well (in that he was a double-agent, working for the CIA to infiltrate into the Soviet Union). And then he came back after his work was done there, and got involved in infiltrating the Cubans down in the New Orleans area, by setting up this “Fairplay for Cuba” front.
And obviously, he was on another undercover job, there in Dallas, but was not involved in the Kennedy assassination — but maybe Lyndon Johnson was (in connection with the fraud stemming from Billie Sol Estes and Kennedy dropping Johnson from the ticket)....
Me too. Have you read "Best Evidence" One of the best IMO.
I agree. But just like with the chemtrail believers, it doesn't matter how much evidence the Kennedy conspiracy people are confronted with, they're steadfast in their belief in their pet conspiracy.
I like to ask ol’ Sam “ Do you still get a $50k gov. subsidy check for NOT raising sheep on your ranch?”
Is he gonna ask him what the frequency is at the same time?
Wouldn’t our old friend Dan Rather be the better choice to ask about the frequencies? ;)
They’re all the same in my book. kooks.
I think you're on to something with their natural affinity for monarchy.
There is a strong thread of slavishness or perhaps more accurately serfishness among the Democrat constituencies, which is contrary to the traditions of a nation founded on republican principles and the sovereignty and freedom of citizens. Which is why the Democrat leaders see it as important to bring into the country the uneducated, unskilled masses from Thirld World cultures in order to increase their constituency to a permanent governing majority.
Hence, the cult of personality built up around John Kennedy and the elevation of the family of a bootlegger and Wall Street banker to the status of literally "American royalty" among liberals - with the nonsense about "Camelot," "Princess Caroline," "Prince John-John" and so on.
Oswald did it. I know because nobody would have hired a nutjob like Oswald to do a hit like that.
By the way, my father, who wrote intensively about the assassination and was working on a book about Jack Ruby when he died, subscribed to the single shooter story..always.
I believe the Monarchist thinking was greatly amplified in many old liberals after his assassination. It came about as a result of never having quenched the thirst of REVENGE for JFK’s murder. They won’t accept 9/11 because they were forced not to accept justice for JFK’s murder.
As long as these people live, they think it’s become their duty to seek out all those responsible for JFK.
This is becoming increasingly clear. They make movies, documentaries, TV, etc., because THEY CAN’T LET GO of it.
However, I do believe that the Marcello crime family MIGHT have been involved.
What some forget is the fact that the Mob was mad at the Communist and Castro for cutting off the Mob, from Cuban night clubs and Cuban gambling.
Anyway, interesting reading.
I do believe that the left wants to distance Communists from the JFK assassination.
But, really... will we ever know for sure?
Let me ease your and other minds about this subject.
Yes, we know. Without a shadow of doubt. Oswald killed Kennedy.
There is more evidence against Oswald than there was against O.J. Simpson. It’s all there for anyone with the patience to R-E-A-D.
Calling the Kennedy assasination a “conspiracy” is just as stupid as calling 9/11 a “conspiracy”.
I read somewhere that the Oswald who returned from the Soviet Union wasn’t the same one the entered..
