  1. Jonathan says:

    Some other “Washington insiders” who knew of or suspected a plot: Richard Nixon (that “Bay of Pigs thing”); Hale Boggs (mysteriously disappeared in a small plane in Alaska); John Sherman Cooper (another Warren Commissioner); John Connolly (always disputed the single bullet theory, which was the same as disputing the Warren Report conclusions).

    Apart from the insiders, most Americans smelled a rat by the 1960s. I was apolitical at the time and a college freshman, and I smelled a big rat on November 24 when Ruby shot and killed Oswald, who had been professing innocence.

    • John Kirsch says:

      Jonathan, to me, the murder of Oswald, IN THE POLICE STATION, was the single most suspicious event during that 48-hour period when so many suspicious things happened. The fact that the shooting was carried out by a person with organized crime ties of some kind makes it all the more suspicious.
      As for Ruby’s purported reason for shooting Oswald, to spare the president’s widow the pain of a trial — if not for the tragic nature of the event, I would be tempted to laugh out loud. Ruby made his living by exploiting women and we’re supposed to believe that he was so moved by the widow’s plight that he murdered a man in cold blood? Like so many aspects of the official story, it defies belief. I wonder if Ruby himself really expected anyone to believe that that was his real reason for doing what he did.
      In a sense, though, all that is beside the point. The point is to look at the EFFECT of Ruby’s action: a dead defendant and no trial.
      The amazing thing is that Oswald lasted as long in police custody as he did. It’s difficult for me to avoid the sense that Ruby was stalking Oswald. And who better to do that than old Jack Ruby, a familiar face who apparently had the run of the police station?
