A corrupted congerssional investigation with a predetermined conclusion spoon fed to the American public by the powers that be. Gee that's something new. Kinda like the case for WMD'S.

Who had the motive?: A nasty trio of the mob, deprived of its revenue from the casinos in Fulgencio Batista's Cuba; The C.I.A., miffed after the disastrous "Bay of Pigs" fiasco; and L.B.J., who knew he would be dumped for NC Gov. Terry Sanford, who would help carry the deep South against Barry in '64. The Secret Service agents were asleep at the switch (except for Rufus Youngblood). How come every person with intimate, incriminating knowledge of the assassination was dead within a matter of months? It's nice to see that Jerry Ford was at least aware of the preposterous notion that Lee Harvey Oswald could have been the lone gunman from the 5th floor of the Texas Book Depository Building. The best master marksmen in the USMC could not have pulled off that feat in that timeframe, as measured by the Abraham Zapruder film. One more piece added to the puzzle that confirms the cover-up of the JFK assassination...

The two members of the Warren Commission whom Ford could have identified as opponents of the single-bullet theory would have been: Senator Richard Russell and Congressman Hale Boggs -- the only two Democrats on the Commission. The other members were all Republicans: Allen Dulles; John McCloy; John Sherman Cooper; Earl Warren and Ford, himself. In later years, Russell would encourage Jim Garrison, and Boggs would live to doubt the 'single bullet theory' and disappear in circumstances that have inspired "conspiracy theories" and novelists including Robert Ludlum who penned The Matarese Circle -- a novel in which Boggs appears as a character who dies -- assassinated because of his ongoing investigation into the assassination of JFK. As Hoover's quisling on the Commission, Ford was party to limiting the scope of the investigation to exclude Hoover's unlikely appearance in Dallas on the eve of the assassinaation when he attended a party at Clint Murchison's house along with Richard Nixon and George H. W. Bush.

1963 was the year America really turned rotten.
