These guys could not even fart without having it recorded. How could they possibly plan and discuss a Regicide plot? Seriously! The Mob was under both legal and borderline illegal surveillance from local, State and Federal authorities and these groups sometimes ran into each other in an attempt to get every phone call and every toilet flush recorded John I guess you could call me one of the "Mafia did it posters". (But see the caveat below.) You said: "These guys could not even fart without having it recorded." BUT--if the surveillance was THAT extensive (the FBI even had to listen to the sounds of their bodily functions says John), then the FBI would have known, in advance, every robbery, every kidnapping, every extortion, every murder, planned by the Mafia; could have (would have) prevented them and would have rounded up the conspirators. And the Mafia as we know it would have been out of business! Moreover nobody that I know of says "the Mafia (as an entity) did it. There were at best three mafia dons involved (Giancana, Trafficante and Marcello). Edited October 21, 2007 by Tim Gratz Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
