For the first time in decades I bought a copy of the National Enquirer at the grocery checkout today to read an article claiming to know the actual second shooter of John F. Kennedy, based on what they say is credible evidence proving it was a conspiracy of the CIA, the Mafia and right-wing Cubans in Florida.
The actual shooter they say was a right-wing Cuban exile in Florida—Herminio Diaz—who had been a hit man for the mafia in Cuba before the revolution—who shot Kennedy from the front from the “Grassy Knoll”—a spot from where several eye witnesses said they saw puffs of smoke at the time Kennedy was shot. The National Enquirer ran a picture of Herminio Diaz. I can believe it was him.
I saw on another checkout stand a few days ago in another tabloid a picture of Lyndon Johnson saying “I did it”, according to his mistress.
November 22, 1963 was a day that shall live infamy throughout history. It was the day the good and the true America started dying. It was the day right-wing power mad psychopathic fascists violently took control of the world to do things their way.
Kennedy was no saint in his personal life but he intended to do the right thing for all people. The world would be a much better place today had he lived. He intended to get the US out of Vietnam as soon as possible; he intended to increase the taxes of the oil industry in the US, and he intended to increase his efforts for world peace, such as the Peace Corps.
I think the National Enquirer, as sleazy as it is, told the JFK story about as true as it can be told in its current issue. I think that the probability LBJ had something to do with killing John F. Kennedy is close to 1.0.
