Krushchev and the JFK assassination "perpetrators"


Recommended Posts

On November 23, Nikita Krushchev wrote the following to LBJ:

"The death of J.F. Kennedy is a hard blow to all people who cherish the cause of peace and Soviet-American cooperation. The heinous assassination of the U.S. President, at a time when, as a result of the efforts of peace-loving peoples, there appeared signs of relaxation of international tension and a prospect has opened for improving relations between the USSR and the United States, evokes the indignation of the Soviet people against the perpetrators of this base crime."

Why use the plural word at a time when it was already assumed in the US that one man was the killer? Am I reading too much into one letter "s"?

Andric,

Well, according to Dick Russell in TMWKTM, Richard Case Nagell claimed that the Soviets were aware of the conspiracy before the assassination. According to Nagell, the Soviets wanted him to kill Oswald if Oswald couldn't be convinced that he was being manipulated by some anti-Castro Cubans pretending to be pro-Castro.
