"What does legendary political operative Roger Stone know that historians Robert Caro and Robert Dallek do not know? He knows that Lyndon Johnson murdered President John F. Kennedy. Combining decades of insider political knowledge with cutting edge JFK assassination research, Roger Stone lays out the case that Lyndon Johnson manipulated the situation in Dallas on November 22, 1963, and murdered Kennedy as he murdered numerous other victims along the way. LBJ was not just shooting his way into the White House, he was avoiding political ruin and prosecution and jail for corruption at the hands of the Kennedy's. The case against LBJ has long been sitting in plain sight, and in The Man Who Killed Kennedy, you will find out all the details you weren't supposed to know: the amoral psychopath detailed in Robert Caro’s earlier volumes; the mutual hatred between the Kennedy's and Lyndon Johnson; the discredited Warren Report; the early murders committed by LBJ on the path to power; the Dallas connections; as well as LBJ’s epic mental instabilities. Political consultant, strategist, and Libertarian Roger Stone has gathered documents and used his firsthand knowledge to construct the ultimate tome to prove that LBJ was not only involved in JFK’s assassination, but was in fact the mastermind"--Amazon.

this reviewer found stone's case compelling: lbj needed, in the worst way, to become president, and he did, by engineering the assassination of his predecessor. mr. nelson wrote and published a book making the same point, earlier, and I prefer it, over this one. but I understand that roger stone is the more prestigious writer, per se, so...this is the one that gets the attention. J Everett haley, a Texan, wrote one making the same approximate points about lbj, about twenty years, ago. is it the size of your publishing house that matters whether you are heard? or just the amount of accumulated cover-up in play. Phillip F. Nelson. " It was not a lapse in reason when Bill Walton (not the ex-basketballer) said, ' Dallas was the ideal location for such a crime.' " " Many involved knew the environment intimately, making facts surrounding the assassination easy to manipulate. The point was made clear by Billy Sol Este's daughter in her book BILLY SOL: KING OF THE TEXAS WHEELER DEALERS: ' A year and a half later, after John Kennedy was shot while riding down the streets of Dallas in an effort to mend his Texas political ties, Daddy said, 'It looks like Lyndon won after all.' " "Even though the association between Oswald and Ruby is murky, it is crystal clear that both men had connections with Carlos Marcello." " One of his deputies, Nofio Pecora, had received a telephone call from Ruby on October 30, 1963." " ' Stone reveals that Nixon was convinced that Johnson had a hand in Kennedy's murder, and that both Barry Goldwater and the KGB came to the same conclusion. Stone indicts J. Edgar Hoover, Gerald Ford, and Arlen Specter for their respective roles in the cover-up' " " ' Nixon recognized Ruby as a 'Johnson man' who was a paid informant for the House Un- American Activities Committee during the 1940s.' " the book says that insiders such as Roy Cohn, and Fat Tony Salerno confirmed these allegations, along with former Attorney General John Mitchell.

If the stories written in this book about LBJ's dirty past are true, it wouldn't surprise me if he was a willing collaborator in the assassination.

I agree with commenter, bdmcn50, some interesting stuff, but nothing to implicate LBJ as other than one of the colluders, perhaps [LBJ was close to being indicted], so he was easily manipulated, since had JFK not been murdered by CIA contracted assassins from the French fascist group, the OAS, LBJ would have gone to jail! [Two very important financial points always missed about LBJ: he gave the banksters two very important tools: ended the speculation tax, in effect since 1914, and signed the amendment to the Bank Act, allowing for foreign ownership of banks by US banks, a necessary step for a global banking cartel.]
