12. Was LBJ involved?

Madeleine Brown — an advertising executive who claimed to have had an extended love affair and a son with President Lyndon B. Johnson — said that she attended a party at Murchison's Dallas home on November 21, 1963 — the evening prior to the assassination of John F. Kennedy. In attendance, according to Brown, were Lyndon Johnson as well as other famous, wealthy, and powerful individuals including, J. Edgar Hoover, Richard Nixon, H. L. Hunt, George Brown, and John McCloy. Brown said that Johnson met privately with several of the men after which he told her: “After tomorrow, those goddamn Kennedys will never embarrass me again. That’s no threat. That’s a promise.” Brown said that on November 22, 1963 — the day of the assassination — Johnson phoned her and repeated his warning. On the TV program A Current Affair, she stated: "On the day of the assassination, not but a couple of hours prior to the assassination, he said that John Kennedy would never embarrass him again and that wasn't a threat — that was a promise."

Of course, this could be just another in the long line of strange coincidences surrounding JFK's murder.

It was no secret that Johnson and the Kennedys hated each other. One claim was Johnson bribed Kennedy into selecting him as his running mate by threatening to expose JFK and all his affairs. People cared about that stuff back then.

Was the Mafia involved? The Mafia has held a long-standing relationship with the intelligence agencies of the US going back to WWII. The Kennedys had it in for New Orleans Mafia leader Carlos Marcello. My best guess is it stemmed from turf wars with daddy Kennedy and his bootlegging days. Bobby Kennedy had Carlos and his lawyer abducted and flown to a South American jungle where they were left to die. Marcello and his lawyer found their way back to civilization and then Louisiana. As the story goes, that is when Marcello vowed to Kill the Kennedys. Asked years after Kennedy's death, Marcello was asked if he killed Kennedy, to which Marcello answered, "Yeah, I killed the sonofabitch. My only regret was I didn't do it with my own hands." A mafia hitman has confessed to being the man behind the picket fence. He said he was told the shooters in the Dal-Tex building wanted a head shot. If Kennedy had not received one by the time his car arrived in front of the picket fence, he was to take the shot, which he did.

I can tell you this. Years after the assassination if the name Kennedy was mentioned at Marcello family gatherings, Marcello and his brothers would lather themselves into a rage.

Old Italian saying: If you want to kill a snake, you cut off its head.
