Letter: LBJ’s role examined

Enid News and Eagle

ENID, Okla. — Nov. 22, 1963, the day President John F. Kennedy was shot, has resulted in a lot of conspiracy theories and books.

The best book yet is “The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ,” by Roger Stone.

Stone says he knows Lyndon B. Johnson was behind the assassination of President Kennedy.

In 1979, the author interviewed John Davis Lodge and asked, who did you brother, Henry Cabot Lodge, say really killed Kennedy?

He said it was the CIA, some mafiosi and Johnson. He said the Warren Commission was a cover-up. He offers overwhelming evidence of a high-level conspiracy.

He said the significant events that caused those involved to come together to murder the president of the United States are: the crusade against organized crime, the attempt to unseat J. Edgar Hoover, the attempt to dismantle the CIA, the attempt to remove the oil depletion allowance and the attempt to unseat Vice President Johnson.

Stone said the cover-up continues today. He said the JFK assassination was a coup d’état.  

He cites names of top members of the government, law enforcement officials, business and personal acquaintances who confessed that Johnson was behind the plot to kill Kennedy and that Johnson was involved in the planning, organization and cover-up of the Kennedy assassination. He gives times, dates and places of those involved and why it was to their advantage to do it.

He has the confession of one Mafia hit man who the author says was one of three gunmen who fired on the president. In another confession, E. Howard Hunt, before he died in 2007, at age 88, said Johnson was the conspiracy’s chief organizer.

The author says the main players in the conspiracy to kill the president of the United States were Hoover, Big Oil, the CIA and the Mafia.
