Who killed JFK? Nixon, Johnson, CIA were suspects

PTI, Dec 14, 2010, 05.58am IST

LONDON

US president John F Kennedy's assassination in Texas in 1963 has long been the subject of conspiracy theories.

A list, prepared by his former secretary 47 years back and made public now, has named Richard Nixon, the then vice-president Lyndon Johnson, the CIA and Communists, among others, as suspects.

The never-before-seen list, which was made by Evelyn Lincoln as she flew home on Air Force One immediately after JFK was gunned down, is to go under the hammer in Connecticut on Thursday and expected to fetch more than $40,000.

Lincoln was, in fact, riding in the motorcade with JFK when he was shot dead by Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas. She jotted down names of people she suspected could have been behind the killing, starting with Lyndon Johnson.

The note also listed "the KKK, Dixiecrats, (Teamsters boss Jimmy) Hoffa, Nixon, (South Vietnam President Ngo Dinh) Diem, CIA in Cuban fiasco."

While the existence of such a list wouldn't surprise me--the New York Post ran an article on the list as well--one name on the list makes no sense--Diem. He'd been dead for weeks.

Perhaps she was thinking of Madame Nhu, the widow of Diem's brother--who was also murdered during the CIA-sponsored coup.

A simple scenario...

The RUSSIAN premier (who in the last election narrowly defeats a man who had been priming/permitting the KGB to kill world leaders and assist RUSSIAN businesses rape and pillage third world neighbors to the south) and Vice premier (who gave up one of the most powerful position in the RUSSIAN government to basically become a peon) take a trip to the vice-premiers home province.

The RUSSIAN premier is killed while traveling thru this provence.

The RUSSIAN vice premier insists on being sworn in immediately and in front of the premiers grieving wife and then

winks to one of his associates after becoming premier. and then proceeds to reverse virtually every significant peaceful thing the RUSSIAN premier was trying to do...

Who do you suppose the RUSSIAN premier's secretary is going to say did it? Or anyone else for that matter.

This is how I've explained the situation of the JFK/Oswald connection to newbies.... if it doesn't make sense to start with the most obvious group... those who benefitted the most.... then what's the point of investigating anyone at all?

Substitute "ANY COUNTRY" for "RUSSIA" and the finger still points to those who benefitted the most. and then expand the list from there.

Imagine what Mrs. Lincoln must have felt, and feared, writing that in her seat on LBJ's Air Force One, and you have a portrait of the resiliency and the vulnerability of the Kennedy camp.

From "My Twelve Years With John F. Kennedy" by Evelyn Lincoln.

p. 370

source of energy and direction gone, I could only stand aimless and

bewildered.

By the way, Abe Fortas told Evelyn repeatedly that he thought JFK

shouldn't go to Texas. Evelyn relayed Abe's concern to JFK. In her

book she recalls he said: "If they are going to get me, they will get

me even in church."

Evelyn never liked LBJ or Nixon for that matter. According to Evelyn,

"President Johnson had seen her on TV severely criticizing his

decisions on the Vietnam War and said: 'I ought to throw that

black-haired bitch into the Potomac.'

Evelyn did eventually winnow down her list of suspects.

<quote on>

She ...."viewed the assassination ... as a political coup d'etat,

carried out by Lyndon Johnson, FBI director J. Edgar Hoover and the

resources of the Central Intelligence Agency. She also insisted it was

the first successful coup in american history.

Ibid, p. xvii

Evelyn had no evidence though. It was "intuition."

thanks peter....Evelyn Lincoln said that JFK told her informally that he was thinking about Governor Terry Sanford for the ticket, but "it will not be Lyndon" (Kennedy and Johnson, p. 205). It was not dictation.

According to Lincoln, he said it in the White House on November 19, 1963.
