Oh I remember that day, I was working on building a new church on a union carpenter crew in New York City. What I'm about to say may disturb some and take some of the shine off Camelot. But that afternoon when the story hit the airwaves, I remember the brick layers and some of the laboror's cheering his death at that very moment. Yes I was in shock and disbelief and numbed by the news and even disturbed when I asked a mason why he was glad, politics back then was just as ugly as it is today. I was 19 years old and within a month I was stationed at Fort Dix, NJ in a reception area previous to 8 weeks of basic training, Dec. 1963, and my first 3 year regular Army enlistment, I was to go on to serve 6 years.

But what we find out of Camelot after the President's passing were often told long before in conversation, in barrooms, nightclubs, social gathering's and political opponents, often times in whispers. Did Oswald act alone, I believe there were at least 2 shooters, that magic bullet theory just don't cut it. Besides Kennedy did have enemies and the one that somehow didn't seem right was the appointment of Allen Dulles to the Warren Commission investigating Kennedy's death. Allen Dulles was the CIA director fired by Kennedy further indicating a cover up by the CIA. The mafia too also was of interest with government influence in Operation Mongoose who were planning an invasion of Cuba and the sole purpose was to take out Fidel Castro. Odd JFK was in bed with the mafia and meanwhile his brother Robert was the US Attorney General*****bent on prosecuting Union bosses who were influenced by mob bosses putting Jimmy Hoffa in prison in a scandalous court battle.

Hoffa was the boss of the Teamsters Union. Marilyn Monroe was another mystery of death by suicide or drug overdose when I believe the CIA took her out because she knew too much after the pillow talk with both JFK and later RFK. Robert Kennedy suffered the same dilemma as his brother killed by Sirhan Sirhan. CIA surely seemed like they were covering their tracks well. I sometimes agree that the plane containing JFK's body along with Vice President Johnson was more of a getaway than a takeoff, Kennedy was ready to dump Johnson as VP for his next campaign, there was no love lost there and the Pentagon's involvement not happy with JFK's plans for the war in Vietnam. Let alone the anger with the Cuban Exiles and the Bay of Pigs when Kennedy gave the stand down order for bomber's ready to hit Cuba. John F Kennedy had lot's to answer for in any event, like I said he had lot's of enemies.

I liked John F Kennedy and thought he a good man, in spite of his personal life. Joseph Kennedy made his fortune during prohibition running booze from Canada and was very involved with the NY Mafia families. Joseph Kennedy was John and Robert's father.
