Probably so. It wouldn't surprise me if lots of people had a hand in making sure that Oswald pulled the trigger on Kennedy.
I wonder what the hell that's all about. It's no secret he visited the Soviet embassy in Mexico City not long before the assassination. They handled him with kid gloves seeing he was a whack job.
A Soviet plot to assassinate our President in 1963. Wouldn't surprise me in the wake of the missile crisis; Khrushchev had his own internal power struggles. They all did in that position. Four years later a plot got hatched by the most senior elements of their government to launch a goddamned nuke at Honolulu and blame it on the Chinese. Important to remember that Leonid Brezhnev was Head Commie at that point and not necessarily in complete control of their government. Kind of like ours now .....
I wonder if Jack Ruby was in contact with the KGB as well? He was the perfect choice to dispose of Oswald. Lifelong wannabe wiseguy who was a frequent visitor to the Dallas PD and no one would question him being there. Also, unimportant enough to have any real secrets to share and had a reputation for tall tales so no one would believe him. Nor would anyone care when he was disposed of.
Peculiar that such a recent book would be so expensive. There are some videos out there related to the book.This book, which I never heard of is currently selling on Amazon for "3 Used from $1,349.37"!!! Why???
Carlos Marcello: The Man Behind the JFK Assassination Hardcover – December 31, 2013
by Stefano Vaccara Robert Miller (Translator)
I used to deal in used books and occasionally you would find a newer book that was collectible and valuable
but $1,349.37 for a relatively recent book on the Kennedy assassination where there are literally hundreds of different titles is still unusual.
Brief description from Amazon website:
""Like getting a pebble out my shoe."
New Orleans is the true birthplace of the Sicilian mafia in America. Carlos Marcello controlled organized crime in Louisiana and across the Southeast in the 1950s and '60s. He was untouchable until he met the Kennedy Brothers. Once Robert Kennedy became attorney general, Marcello was deported to Guatemala and swore to seek revenge. It became a duel to the death. Marcello found his "patsy," a former marine with a Russian wife. Lee Harvey Oswald was the perfect fall guy but he never pulled the trigger."
At any rate if you have a copy you might try throwing it on Amazon or eBay and see what happens.
- some books can go real high and suddenly drop when a bunch become available.
In the JFK assassination I think that if the whole unadulterated truth were to be revealed it would probably still create sufficient personal and institutional embarrassment so that sealing it up for a few more decades is probably a good idea. Let the dust settle on graves before all that sees the light of day. Not really expecting to hear the KGB or Mafia or Cubans whacked him but there were certainly extreme personalities involved at every turn.
