2. It was a mob hit.

JFK and RFK were seriously investigating and prosecuting the mob. That's what Thom Hartmann and Lamar Waldron say. They really sound like they know what they're talking about, and I am inclined to believe them.

Another thing: One poster in this thread says the bullet that killed JFK came from in front of the car. If you look at the Zapruder film in full speed, I think it's clear that bullet did, indeed, come from in front of that car. I have no doubt that Oswald was shooting at the motorcade from that window in the Texas School Book Depository building, but the bullet that actually killed JFK came from in front of the car.

Here's one more thing that I heard 35 or 40 years ago: My brother came to me saying that he had just read a short article in USA Today that was very interesting. A retired Dallas cop named Roscoe White who had just died had made a stunning death bed confession: He claimed that he was the shooter behind the grassy knoll, and also that he was the killer of Officer Tippett later that day.

That article was short and buried on an inside page, my brother said, and I never actually read it, but I thought, Hoo boy, there's going to be a huge media controversy over this! I never heard another word about it. Why? Did somebody squelch that story?

I did not choose any of the options in the poll because there was not a button for "It was a mob hit". One button offered the mafia but the mafia and the mob are not exactly the same thing. So I did not vote in the poll.
