50. +1, the role played by Nixon should not be overlooked...

even before he ran against JFK in 1960 Nixon was setting up Operation 40, and who knows how many other secret black ops programs aimed at protecting the port of New Orleans and invading Cuba. The neocons of the time wanted to start a full on war with the Soviet Union. Nixon assumed he would win the election, but when JFK won and became so popular he and his supporters then dreaded the thought of a decade or more of presidencies under the Kennedy brothers.

As you pointed out, when JFK worked with the Soviet leader behind the backs of the CIA this was viewed as traitorous. Later, RFK began a secret investigation involving French intelligence and the KGB examining the very forces, all surrounding Nixon, who were responsible for the assassination. A book was set to be published about this to help his run for president in 1968. RFK was likely the very first conspiracy theorist.
