32. The CIA and mafia may have been tightly interwoven at certain levels...

most likely the spheres surrounding Richard Nixon and other high-level Republicans. Robert Kennedy wanted to go after the mob, but he knew that he had to get elected first. The book that his people allegedly had ghost-written: "Farewll America: The Plot to Kill JFK" was to become part of his campaign, but was initially only published in France after his death. The back cover of the book, now available in the US, reads: "..the linkage between large corporate and banking interests, the ever-growing American intelligence apparatus, and the international petroleum cartels that were lined up with a bevy of military brass and Mafia chieftains against JFK...The bottom line was that enemies of JFK collaborated with the CIA to erase the percived threat to their interests by John and Robert Kennedy." First published in 1968.
