This book is an absolute MUST READ and also read Joesten's other books, especially How Kennedy Was Killed: the Full Appalling Story.
Joesten understood very early on that Lyndon Johnson was at the epicenter of the JFK assassination. And he knew US intelligence was involved. Joesten knew Oswald was US intelligence and was either a fall guy or a patsy. And he knew Cuba policy was a big factor in the JFK assassination.
In short, Joachim Joesten ROCKED and he did it in real time, while the murderers of John Kennedy still occupied the highest levels of American government.
Wow - God bless Joachim Joesten, a brave and very competent JFK researcher. Re: the LBJ angle, Joesten was on the right track a full 16-20 years before Madeleine Brown, Billie Sol Estes, Barr McClellan, Charles Crenshaw, E. Howard Hunt came forward indicting Lyndon Johnson in the JFK assassination.
Joesten closes his book: "If Lyndon Johnson has any brains left, he'd blow them out before the law gets around to him. That way he could at least escape the pinnacle of infamy and save his country from foundering in an abyss of national shame."
BUY THIS BOOK!!!!!
Included are LBJ's connection to the mob, Texas oil, political graft and corruption, blackmailing of FBI head J. Edgar Hoover (his next door neighbor for more than twenty years), including murders. The almost endless series of both high and low scandals, demonstrates that LBJ's capacity for evil was only exceeded by his capacity for crudity and "red neck" bad taste.
According to this author, LBJ not only was evil, but also thin-skinned, volatile, vulgar and knew and used the "ways of power." The crux of the book is that LBJ knew (and said so) that unless JFK was killed, he was not just off the 1964 presidential ticket, but was also headed directly to the nearest jail.
An LBJ led assassination of JFK was an imperative. It was his only "way out" of his tenuous set of circumstances bursting at the seams with scandals that could have landed him in jail. Five Stars
