Skip to comments.Was There an Oswald/Ruby Cover-Up? Did the Mob Kill JFK? premieres November 22

This Sunday the Discovery Channel is running two back-to-back documentaries -- "Did the Mob Kill JFK?" and "JFK: The Ruby Connection" -- exploring the role of the Mafia behind the assassination of President John F. Kennedy:
New information and never before heard details of a startling confession raise new questions on just who was behind the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy and the subsequent killing of Lee Harvey Oswald by Jack Ruby. * * * "I had the little bastard killed. He was a thorn in my shoe" -- according to a secret FBI informant these were the words of his cellmate, Carlos Marcello, the notorious New Orleans mafia boss (one of Americas most powerful mafia godfathers) confessing to his role in orchestrating the Kennedy assassination and featured in Did the Mob Kill JFK." Almost half a century after the assassination, the informant has come forward to provide an exclusive interview that may solve one of the nation's most enduring mysteries and re-write history. * * * Marcello, who controlled mob operations in Louisiana and Texas, had long been suspected in having a hand in the Kennedy assassination. "Did the Mob Kill JFK?" links Marcello with both Oswald and Ruby, as the godfather reveals in his confession that he brought Lee Harvey Oswald into the plot, telling the informant that "He was my man. He did what the hell I told him to do." Marcello also admits that Dallas strip club owner Jack Ruby was deeply in debt and "owed him big." The special draws on an array of historians, investigators and eyewitness accounts, including interviews with author Lamar Waldron and former Secret Service agent Abraham Bolden who claims an aborted attempt on the President's life in Chicago early in November was covered up.

Maybe at the direction of the Fed. Or payment to the mob from them. I firmly believe the Fed was behind his murder.
Mob boss, godfather - confession - pasha!
“thorn in my shoe” - hardly a phrase a mob boss would use.
If the mob were involved.......it wouldn’t have been so messy and no one would know - ever.
I have always believed the mob killed JFK and Oswald was killed to keep him quiet. Ruby was the perfect hit man because he was going to croak anyway.
The sicilian is “will someone remove the pebble from my shoe?”
Fed contractors w/ mob subcontractors.
The ‘Miracle Bullet’ never really captured my imagination the way the politicians wanted it to.
Conspiracy, quite possibly. JFK’s would be one more so than some of the others floating around today.
Lee Harvey Oswald, a liberal who grew up in NYC, killed the beloved JFK all by his lonesome. He was a deranged liberal, much like many of the liberals of today, and he did it all by himself. The Mob is innocent; another victim of liberal slander.
IIRC Marcello would have had to have the go ahead from Giancana in Chicago to do anything like that.
I am sure the media will all saw it was George W Bush AND Sarah Palin as toddlers who forced Dick Cheney to do it. It is about the only think they have not been blamed for!
I think Bobby and JFK pissed off the mob and they did him in. Bobby went back on his word with the mob. That is a no no. Or maybe it was LBJ? LOL
I’ve followed the incident my entire adult life and can come to only one sure conclusion: there was a conspiracy!
The government colluded to hide that there was more than one shooter! The rest of who did what is immaterial to me, and given the passage of time the details may never be known.
Simply download the Z film and watch K’s head be blown backwards as his brain matter explodes over the trunk of the limo. If not for the film the gvmnt would have gotten away with it.
no...hell hath no fury like that of a woman scorned...at the last minute, jackie had the secret service switch from the armored limosine to the convertible limo...jackie set it up and had her cheatin old man shot down like the dog he was...
Jackie did it. Or had it done.
And she’s definitely NOT GUILTY. The pig deserved it.
My wife comes from a certain Sicilian family in Chicago and I can tell you that they think the mob killed JKF. Motive..revenge for Bobbie K’s attack of the mob after thehad helped JFK elected in IL. Judith Exner was a go- between the mob and JFK.
On the History Channel in mid-October, were about four shows covering different aspects of the assassination, revealing a lot of new information.
One person on one of these programs made what I thought was a very interesting point.
A number of very well placed mob figures were prosecuted in the years after Kennedy’s death, on unrelated matters. Although these figures faced long prison sentences, and did go the state’s evidence route, not a one of them claimed to have knowledge of a Kennedy conspiracy.
About five years ago, there was a series of five one hour shows covering a number of conspiracy theories. On one of them, there was a well place mob figure that stated he delivered a message to either Oswald or mob contacts in New Orleans prior to Kennedy’s assassination. He thought it was a “hit” order.
No large sum of money was every found to have been deposited in the Oswald account.
I still don’t know if Oswald was even involved. I tend to think he was, but in the overall scheme of things, I’m less than positive.
One aspect about Oswald that comes out over and over again, is that he was a man who desired to make a mark on history. He thought he was very smart, and that he had not lived up to his potential, or hadn’t been recognized for the brilliant mind he had. I’m probably not expressing this well, but the idea is that if he had made a history making move, why didn’t he own it from day one, and explain what cause had influenced him to do it?
Some of these things are real quandaries for me.
Jim Garrison, New Orleans District Attorney in the ‘60s, discovered the link to Marcello, and attempted to follow up and prosecute several people. He was met with disdain and belittled for his efforts. It was much like the way anyone asking about zer0’s “natural born” status has been treated.
Joe Kennedy had solicited the assistance of the mob to sway some unions to help in the 1960 election. Included was the dem primary in WV in which JFK upset Humphrey and the city of Chicago, which reportedly held back vote tallies to see how many votes JFK needed to beat Nixon.
After the boys got in and went after the teamsters and the mob, Giancano sent Roselli and another guy to Hyannisport to remind the old man that the organization had helped JFK get elected. Joe said he would talk to them when the family got together at Christmas. Before that the old man had a major stroke and the conversation did not happen.
The problem with the JFK assassination is there's plenty of motive and capability to go around. Hard evidence is another thing all together.
