express.co.uk: Jacqueline Kennedy believed Lee Harvey Oswald was merely “a patsy”

John F Kennedy's Wife In Her Own Words
by Mike Parker
August 7, 2011

Excerpts:

A series of secret audio tapes made by Jacqueline Kennedy are to be made public in a TV special that will blow the lid off her private life with assassinated husband President John F Kennedy.

A spokesman there confirmed that the tapes’ “explosive” contents will be aired in a two-hour TV special, although he refused to divulge further details. The Sunday Express has, however, learned that Jackie:

Believed that gunman Lee Harvey Oswald was merely “a patsy” in the murder of JFK and was working for a sinister cabal led by a group of Texas tycoons...

The senior source said: “The Jackie tapes are, in effect, Caroline’s trade-off for ABC dropping The Kennedys series.”

10. Interesting because at least publicly Jackie treated the Johnson family very warmly
after JFK's assassination.

21. That may be true
But LBJ threw her out of the White House ASAP. And she would only look like a "truther" if she went with it public. JFK jr was going to investigate his fathers death. But lo and behold, that will never happen. Hopefully Caroline will do it.

9. Oh, my. Wouldn't it be delicious if this exposed some clowns who are still with us?
Jackie speaks for many of us and Caroline has the feminine equivalent of...well, nerve...to pull it off. Go, Caroline!

That will have the highest ratings of any shows I can think of in the recent past.

19. "Involved" doesn't mean "guilty" - serious researchers are as baffled as anyone else...
Put it this way. Kerry Thornley was involved. Anything THAT crazy is not going to be understood by mortal beings.

But I suspect that part of what makes investigation so hard is that a number of false trails were created. There are TOO MANY ties to TOO MANY potential characters involved for them all to be in on it unless it really was a world-scale conspiracy between multiple competing secret societies, which hypothesis is best left to Robert Anton Wilson's fiction.

23. Or on the other hand perhaps a "Murder on the Orient Express" scenario
with many guilty parties all sharing an enmity of JFK.

25. '.....a cabal of Texas tycoons were involved.'
Jackie Kennedy's audio tapes are set to be made public in an upcoming ABC television special. They were made months after the assassination of JFK.


August 7,2011


.....

On the assassination, a second source said Jackie believed gunman Lee Harvey Oswald was “part of a much larger conspiracy.” She became convinced that Vice-President Lyndon Johnson, JFK’s successor, and a cabal of Texas tycoons were involved.

“Those businessmen expected that LBJ would give them more favourable treatment in Vietnam War contracts and oil policies.

“There is no doubt that Jackie wanted the truth to come out, but feared that she and her children, Caroline and John Jr, might also be marked for death by the ­conspirators.”




This should be quite illuminating.

27. someone else who says LHO was a patsy
This is a cut and paste from Coast to Coast's program/guest summaries. I heard the program and found her credible.

Me & Lee

Biography:

Judyth Vary Baker was once a promising science student who dreamed of finding a cure for cancer, but strayed from a path of mainstream scholarship at the University of Florida to a life of espionage in New Orleans with Lee Harvey Oswald. In her memoir, Me & Lee, Judyth offers extensive documentation of how she came to be involved with cancer research at such a young age, the personalities who recruited her to move to New Orleans in 1963, how she was hired there – along with Lee Oswald – by Reily Coffee Co. and fired the same afternoon Lee was arrested for disturbing the peace on Canal Street, and how she became a participant in the development of a biological weapon that Oswald was to smuggle into Cuba to eliminate Fidel Castro. Judyth shows the evidence and relates – from her first-hand experience – all she knows about the Kennedy assassination, her love affair with Lee Oswald over the summer of '63, her conversations with him as late as two days before JFK's death, his role as a deep-cover intelligence agent who was framed for an assassination he was actually trying to prevent, and how he was silenced by his old friend Jack Ruby.

29. And, she'd be scared enough for her family that it was to wait for 50 years!
Who is bigger and badder, the American way or a secret cabal of rich folks.

I say it's our time for our way.
