The Mafia Did Not Orchestrate JFK’s Assassination

With this being the 60th anniversary year of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, there will undoubtedly be an increasing number of articles in the mainstream press about the assassination leading up to November 22, the date that Kennedy was murdered.

It is a virtual certainty that the articles appearing in the mainstream press will be reciting the official lone-nut theory of the assassination. However, it is possible that some mainstream commentators will point to the Mafia as being the orchestrator of the assassination. 

But while the Mafia, which was the CIA’s assassination partner against Cuban leader Fidel Castro, may have participated in the assassination through Jack Ruby’s silencing of Lee Harvey Oswald, we can know with a virtual certainty that the main orchestrator of the assassination was the U.S. national-security establishment. 

How can we know that? One way is through the fraudulent autopsy that was conducted on the president’s body on the very evening of the assassination. 

There is one undisputed fact about the autopsy: It was conducted by the U.S. military. Not the Mafia. Just the military. Therefore, given that the military conducted the autopsy, if, in fact, the autopsy was fraudulent, then that automatically leads to but one conclusion: the U.S. national-security establishment orchestrated and carried out the assassination.

There is no other reasonable conclusion that can be drawn. There is no innocent explanation for a fraudulent autopsy. No one has ever come up with one and no one ever will. A fraudulent autopsy doesn’t just happen on the spur of the moment as some sort of spontaneous act. It had to be pre-planned part of the cover-up of the assassination itself, especially given that the fraudulent-autopsy scheme was actually launched at Parkland Hospital in Dallas at the moment that the president was declared dead. That was when a team of armed Secret Service agents, brandishing guns and stating that they were operating under orders, declared that under no circumstances were they going to permit the Dallas County Medical Examiner, Dr. Earl Rose, to conduct an autopsy on JFK’s body, notwithstanding that Texas state law required it. 

I set forth the autopsy fraud in my books The Kennedy AutopsyThe Kennedy Autopsy 2, and An Encounter with Evil: The Abraham Zapruder Story. 

Let’s consider just one example of the autopsy fraud. Several more are in my three books.

Jeremy Gunn was the general counsel for the Assassination Records Review Board, the agency called into existence in the 1990s to enforce the JFK Records Collection Act. Douglas Horne served on the staff of the ARRB as Chief Analyst for Military Records. 

Gunn and Horne discovered that there were actually two separate brain exams as part of the JFK autopsy. Their discovery contradicted the sworn testimony of the three pathologists who conducted the autopsy. At the risk of belaboring the obvious, when autopsy pathologists are committing  perjury regarding an official autopsy, that is very persuasive evidence that somebody is up to no good.

More important, Gunn and Horne discovered that the two brain examinations involved two completely different brains. The brain at the first brain exam almost certainly was JFK’s brain. The brain at the second brain exam was not. 

How do we know this? 

John Stringer was the official photographer for the autopsy. He was at the first brain exam, which occurred a couple of days after the autopsy. He said that at that brain examination, they “sectioned” the brain, which meant they cut it like a loaf of bread. That’s standard procedure with headshot wounds. 

When shown the official photographs of the brain, Stringer denied that they were the photographs he took of the brain. One reason is that he used a different type of film and photographed the brain at different angles than what was depicted in the official photos. Another much more important reason was that the official photographs of the brain showed a brain that hadn’t been sectioned. 

I should point out that once a brain has been sectioned, it cannot be put back together. That’s how we know that the brain at the second brain exam cannot possibly be the brain at the first brain exam.

Stringer testified that the following three people were at the brain examination (which he thought was only one brain exam): Commander James J. Humes and Commander “J” Thornton Boswell, who were two of the three autopsy pathologists, and Stringer. The third autopsy pathologist, Col. Pierre Finck, was not at that first brain exam.

Col. Finck, however, testified that he was at the brain examination about a week after the official autopsy. Present at that brain exam were Humes, Boswell, Finck, and an unknown photographer. Stringer was not present at that brain examination. 

There can be no innocent explanation for perjury and two separate brain exams, especially when they involve brains belonging to different people. That is conclusive evidence of autopsy fraud. And that’s only one example. More examples are found in my three books.

What will the “Mafia did it” people — and, for that matter, the lone-nut theorists — say about the autopsy fraud in their upcoming articles in the mainstream press? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. They simply do not acknowledge it, much less confront it. They have airbrushed it out of history and simply pretend that it never happened. If confronted with it, they cry “Conspiracy theory!” and rush away. That’s how they are able to avoid confronting the uncomfortable and undeniable fact that it was the national-security establishment that conducted the fraudulent autopsy and, therefore, orchestrated and carried out the assassination. There is simply no way around this discomforting truth.
