...or simulate an attack...
...on Kennedy to whip up public opinion...
...so Kennedy would have to reverse
his policies on communism.

What they told him doesn't matter.
He was under orders.
He was a foot soldier.
You can't miss. He is a dead duck.
I don't buy it.
Why would the FBI cover it up?
A telex disappears from every FBI office
in this country?

There's a word, Bill.
Or a cover-up.

Don't you have enough proof
of the FBI's complicity yet?

I respect this country's institutions!
How the hell can you keep
a conspiracy going...

...between the mob, CIA, FBl, Army
Intelligence and who knows what else...

...when you can't keep a secret
in this room between 12 people?

I mean, we got leaks everywhere.
We are going to trial, y'all!
What the hell do we really got?
Oswald, Ruby, Banister
and Ferrie are dead.

Maybe Shaw is an agent. I don't know.
But as a covert operator...
...he is wide open for blackmail
because of his homosexuality.

Shaw's our toehold.
I don't know or care exactly how he fits.

But he's lying through his teeth.
I won't let go of him.

Tha¬Ěs why you're going to trial
against Clay Shaw?

You will lose!
We should investigate
our Mafia leads here.

I can buy that easier
than I can the government.

Ruby is all mob, knows Oswald,
sets him up.

Hoffa, Trafficante, Marcello,
they hire some guns and do Kennedy.

The government doesn't want
to open up a whole can of worms...

...because it used the mob
to try to get Castro.

Castro being assassinated
by the mob by us...

...sounds wild to John Q. Citizen.
So they close the book on JFK.
Makes perfect sense to me.
I don't doubt their involvement
at a low level.

Could the mob change the parade route?
