Just out of curiosity... Where did you see this mysterious file that couldn't possibly have anything to do with to do with me?

It's not getting any attention, because it's simply too old.

That's only being a little bit facetious, too- most of the people online are far too young to remember JFK as anything but a now-26-year-old, long-since-debunked movie. The Kennedy Clan today has less social-media standing than the Kardashians.

Heck, hardly anyone even cares about 9/11 anymore- that's ancient history, as far as most tweeting twits and he-needs-a-book-to-the-face-ers are concerned today.

No, what's far, FAR more important today is telling everyone how Trump is a White Supremacist, Hillary actually won the election, and how letting your little girl dress up as "Moana" is somehow violently racist.

I mean, look at it- most people have forgotten about the Las Vegas shootings, and that wasn't even a month ago! You expect them to care about some event that happened during their grandparents time, back when they drove horses to school, their phones were bolted to walls and everything was in black-and-white?

And the sad part is, I'm not really exaggerating.

What's in the file? 99% of it will be dry technical documents- hours and hours of interviews with people who had nothing to do with anything, other than that they "heard shots from..."

The rest will be a more detailed telling of stuff we already knew- Kennedy was struck in the head, grisly details of the autopsy, a few extra lines of Oswald's Communist rhetoric, maybe a few as-yet-unreleased photos of the crime scene.

(Keeping in mind my overall knowledge of the whole assassination has way more pop-culture references than actual facts. )

You've been watching the reboot of Hawaii Five-0, which had an episode that revolved around whether the CIA had a hand in JFK's assassination.

Everyone with a brain knows: The Mob had JFK killed by Oswald as payback for JFK's crawfishing on the deal Joe Kennedy Sr. made to put JFK in office.

Joe Kennedy Sr. wanted to be PotUS, but had too many Mob connections in his closet to run himself. So, instead, he chose to be The Mandarin -- let his kids run, then rule through them. First Joe Jr.; then JFK; then RFK; then perhaps Edward, or some of the Kennedy clan grandchildren (if Joe Sr. lived that long).

The plan took a bullet when Joe Jr.'s assignment to a rear-echelon project proved rather more dangerous than anticipated -- who knew trying to fly a B-17 filled with explosives might be a hazard to one's health? (Look up "Project _Aphrodite_".)

So the Heir Apparent is gone. Worse, the second in line managed to get ambushed by a Japanese destroyer, losing half his PT-boat crew. It took some serious polishing to get that turd to shine; but finally, shine it did, in time for the '60 PotUS election. That he was running against The Least Charismatic Man In Political History in '60 helped a bit, but not quite enough for Joe Sr.'s liking.

So Joe Sr. calls in some of his markers -- the dead rise to vote en-bloc for the Democrats in Chicago, and it's just enough to put JFK over.

Problem: JFK and RFK were never told of Joe Sr.'s machinations -- nor of the bargain Joe Sr. had to cut: "We put your boy in the White House; you tell him to back off of us." Before Joe Sr. can act, JFK installs RFK as Attorney General, and turns him loose on the Mob.

Worse: JFK's complete botching of the Cuba operation guarantees the Mob will never see its Havana-casino income again. Rule of Thumb: NEVER cost a Mobster money....

The Mob finds a Useful Idiot in Oswald -- someone with Cuban connections, however tenuous; and who can decapitate a rabbit at a dead run from 300 yards. Making the SBD shot is child's-play for him.

"First Rule Of Assassination: Kill the assassins." The Mob arranges with a terminally-ill club owner: "You kill Oswald, and keep your trap shut afterward, you go to jail; but you get free medical care for the rest of your life, and we'll make your stay as comfortable as possible." Oswald dies shortly thereafter. Ruby spends some time in the pen, and dies quietly.

(And when RFK shows he didn't get the message -- well, you figure it out.)

[sigh] Oh, for the days when the only mobsters f***ing with PotUS were American mobsters....

I saw it on Oliver Stone's coffee table. Next to the bong.

the Red Dwarf version of events, far more plausible imo.

. . . but I suspect that any evidence they hold will just support the "lone nut" theory. Personally, I'm inclined to believe that explanation, but I doubt it'll satisfy many conspiracy theorists.
