The CIA was afraid that JFK was gonna make nice with the Soviets? So they killed him?
LBJ wanted to be President. Kennedy had a long list of dangerous affairs including one with a communist spy that was about to be revealed. I think that the Democrats murdered their own President. What would have happened to the Democrat party in 1964 if the country knew old Came-A-Lot was boffing communist spies? They had to make him a martyr.
This is just another red herring thrown out to protect JFK and the Came-A-Lot myth. Was Chris Matthews the co-author?

Yes, see my comment with Janney’s introduction. I am convinced this was a wet work job but the leftists always go off on the grand conspiracy track. There are people within some parts of the US government you do not want to get seriously annoyed. Ms Meyer annoyed the wrong people.
My guess is that Ms. Meyer was thought to possess evidence that she and JFK had dropped acid together during some of their trysts. This was back before the Exner revelations and all the JFK bimbo eruptions. The New Frontiersmen had a big vested interest in keeping the shine on Camelot and the JFK myth. They certainly were starting to undermine LBJ and were looking forward to a future triumphal return to power under RFK. Meyer had a big mouth and her wealth had always protected her from any consequences of her actions. She didn't know who she was messing with. My nomination for the arranger of her demise is this gentleman:
Ken O'Donnell was the man JFK looked to to handle ‘sensitive issues’. He was a classic big city political machine thug operative. The Boston mob had plenty of fellows who were good at wet work and O'Donnell certainly had good contacts in the East End. The actual murder of Mary Meyer is a straightforward mob style hit.
O'Donnell became a mean angry drunk who died young.
