The ideas were improper at that time and people considered them to be harm to our society. For 51 years this assassination case has become a mystery to our society. The CIA hired Lee Harvey Oswald to assassinate John F. Kennedy, and to cover that up, Jack Ruby was also hired to kill Lee Harvey Oswald so he would not have to testify in court. Jack Ruby could testify and say he killed Oswald out of anger of him killing John F. Kennedy.
Lastly, eyewitnesses say that right before the shooting Johnson ducked down. Could something have convinced this man to kill, was it his own idea, or was it the CIA’s idea? “LBJ took the opportunity and had JFK killed to become President.”-Roger Stone The next one is not a huge stretch from reality, this is that the CIA did it. There was many tension... ... middle of paper ... ... missiles at us, and then a year later, JFK was killed. Many people still believe that Oswald did it out of spite, but since he had such a history with Cuba, Mexico, Russia/ Soviet Union, and the Marines such theories have emerged.
The Mafia would want to kill Kennedy mainly because Kennedy’s brother was getting Mafia leaders arrested and sent to prison. Before the election, Kennedy’s father made promises and deals with Mafia leaders if they voted for his son so he could be made president. I think Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby either worked for the Mafia (members), or were chosen by the Mafia or Lyndon Johnson to do the job. The evidence which suggests this is what Jack Ruby said about Lyndon Johnson. He didn’t specifically use his name but said Kennedy’s death was something to do with “the man in power now”.
The public was outraged that President Kennedy was murdered and wanted an explanation. President Lyndon B. Johnson set up the Warren Commission lead by Earl Warren to head investigation. The Warren Commission concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin in the murder of John F. Kennedy.

However if this is true, the Mafia would definitely consider JFK and his brother going after them as a double-cross, and this would have been a more than strong enough motive for the them to kill Kennedy. It is important to note that the Mafia felt that no person was above them, that nobody is immune from their power. If the Mafia wanted Kennedy dead, and had a motive, is it that unlikely that they did it?The events that would have happened if Kennedy was not to be assassinated were extremely vital. Kennedy was going to remove a thousand soldiers from Vietnam by 1963, and was committed to withdraw all troops by 1965, when Lyndon B. Johnson took office, neither happened. He was going to smash the CIA into a thousand pieces, and replace J. Edgar Hoover as Director of the FBI, this didn't happen.
With these ambitions it is no surprise he made so many new enemies, some even being in the US government itself. Many of these new enemies he had found were very powerful, and would stop at nothing to see his new ways come to an end, even if it meant killing him. Shortly after the incident, the government founded the Warren Commission, and a government investigation began on the assassination. The Warren Commission was a group made of “outstanding citizens” to "ascertain, evaluate and report upon the facts relating to the assassination ... and the subsequent violent death of the man charged with the assassination Lee Harvey Oswald.” The Commission was instructed by the government to examine evidence brought forth to them by the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation), or and any other organization or person. With the examination of the evidence, the Commission was then to make a decision on exactly what occurred that day.
If he was not released, they were going to start killing the presidential staff, including the first family. The president remained hidden and secretly plotted how to get to his family and defeat the terrorists. It finally came down to the president against the terrorists. The terrorists wanted the president to call the prison that their leader was in and have him released. If the president did not want to make the call, he had to choose to kill either his wife or his daughter.
Ruby was said to be a hero by some, but was convicted of first degree murder for the assassination of Oswald. Ruby owned a nightclub, and blamed Oswald for everything. He claimed that his distraught feelings towards the death of JFK caused him to kill Oswald. The police did not care about that statement and still convicted him to death, even though many people supported him. Even though he was sentenced to death he did not get the electric chair; he died from lung cancer while waiting for a new trial in a Texas hospital in 1967.
Did Oswald commit murder and assassinate the president of the United States of America? That answer we may never truly know. Many believe that Oswald was the sole murderer of JFK, while others believe completely different theories. I happen to believe in a not so common theory in which the man behind it the assassination was none other than the jealous Vice President Lyndon Baines Johnson. LBJ was a dangerous man, he had many connections to mafia members, ex and current CIA members some of which had great feelings of hatred towards our president, even Johnson himself had many reason to dislike Mr. Kennedy but was LBJ really behind the murder our great president John F. Kennedy, that is what I intend to learn much more about.
Later, they killed him when he was going to run for President. There is some more evidence that the mob ... ... middle of paper ... ...mes. I think that the CIA was mad at President Kennedy for not helping them out at the Bay of Pigs, so they managed to convince Oswald that they would give him lots of money to kill the President. When they hired Oswald, they had one of their own men on the grassy knoll to shoot Oswald after he shot President Kennedy, then the CIA’s man would kill Kennedy. This supports the theory of why the people heard a shot over the fence at the grassy knoll.
