Former Nixon aide: LBJ arranged JFK assassination

LINK

quote:

Stone claims Johnson ‘micro-managed’ Kennedy’s Dallas motorcade, demanding it pass through Dealy Plaza on the afternoon of November 22, 1963, the infamous day when Oswald shot Kennedy from the overlooking book depository building.
‘Nixon knew Jack Ruby, hired him on House payroll in 1947 at request of … Lyndon Johnson. Newly released documents prove it.

So, is this dude trying to just make a buck, or could there actually be some new evidence about to come out 50 years later?

The Vice President can't tell the secret service how to protect the President. Only the POTUS could instruct the SS to alter the route, and it would still be extremely hard for them to do that.

Oliver Stone is a nutjob. His "american history" shite on showtime is incredibly full of shite.

From the link

Roger Stone, 61, makes the claim in his upcoming book 'The Man who killed Kennedy - the case against LBJ,' which is set to be published in October.

At this point most people seem to believe that there is some kind of coverup. If there is real evidence I wish they would just come out with it.

While I do not believe the official story with JFK, I have a hard time believing this to be new facts. Why would the VP have anything to do with the security arrangements of President? The president can make requests but even those are not always met by the secret service. One request I can remember was from Clinton, whenever he came onto Military bases Secret Service would have service members part of security detail shoulder weapons behind their backs cause he did not want to see them.

Aren't they suppose to release all the top secret files to the public on the assassination 50 years after it happened?

Didn't know that.

I'd like to hear what Robert Caro thinks about this claim.

A: what is that gif?

B: Kennedy was trying to clean-up the powers that were corrupting the country and people he was about to screw ended him. I wouldn't doubt if they went to Lyndon for help.

Greatest democrat ever. Such a shame.

Actually, LBJ and the Texas democrats he led did much of the planning for the trip. The Kennedy administration, other than LBJ and his cohorts, knew very little of how things were done in Texas and which groups Kennedy should meet with, where he should go, etc.

This is precisely why, if LBJ had a part in sending the motorcade through Dealey Plaza, none of this is either surprising or incriminating. All of that is notwithstanding the fact that Dealey Plaza is a large pedestrian area (for a parade where Kennedy was wanting to be seen by normal folks on the street) on a major thoroughfare out of downtown. Would anyone bat an eye at someone routing a motorcade parade down Poydras to I-10 on its way out of downtown New Orleans? No, because it's a logical and commonly used departure route.

So Nixon knew Jack Ruby, who was hired by Lyndon Johnson in 1947. So they knew each other. Big deal. Doesn't prove Johnson was behind the killing. Does it seem like he was? Hell yes, but this information doesn't prove jack shite.

Quoted for common sense content.

This is such common knowledge as to not even be up for debate.
