Tim Gratz Posted June 20, 2005 Share Posted June 20, 2005 (edited) Trafficante has been approached by Hoffa (confirmed) and possibly by Castro to kill JFK. Trafficante knows through Rosselli that he is working with CIA agents (Harvey, Morales) who hate JFK. Trafficante knows that if they are suckered into the assassination, a cover-up will be assured. So Trafficante requests that Rosselli organize the assassination. Rosselli begins by joking with Morales about killing JFK, feeling him out so to speak. The initial conversations occur during drinking bouts at "Alabama Jack's", a favorite CIA watering hole on Card Sound Road in the Florida Keys. When Morales does not immediately reject the assassination idea, Rosselli begins a dance with him and finally gets to the point and makes an offer to him: "Morales, if you supply Cuban exile sharpshooters to kill JFK, the Mafia will supply the money and the intelligence [the latter primarily through Ruby]." Morales says yes so the assassination itself is organized by Rosselli and Morales. So the conspiracy consists of Trafficante, probably Giancana, Rosselli, Ruby, Morales and a few Cuban exile sharpshooters and a few Mafioso shooters as well. The plot goes awry when LHO is not killed during capture, so the Mafia is forced to bring in Ruby to murder the "perfect patsy". I speculate that Ruby helps the plotters by obtaining DPD uniforms and photos of Dallas police cars (which Trafficante uses to create a bogus DPD car). The CIA renegades may be proficient enough to create false SS identification. P.S. Dillon was never consulted.
