Fifty years ago on November 8, 1960, John F. Kennedy was elected president. Forty-seven years this November 22, he was gunned down in Dallas by a team of professional hitmen. Those who believe a “lone nut,” Lee Harvey Oswald did it, have to believe in the tooth fairy, too. I am going to list a bunch of web sites that get very close to the truth of who did it and why.
This is an excellent web site, written by a communications professional, puts the case very clearly, and relatively briefly. Based on all I have read, everything said is true: http://www.tapsns.com/blog/index.php/2007/06/jfk-plot-confirmed/
Though not directly about the Kennedy assassination, this book by investigative journalist Daniel Hopsicker is a fascinating look at the links between the CIA and the International drug cartel, and it is very interesting on the connections to the CIA officials who wanted Kennedy out of the way:
The Wall Street Journal called Barry Seal “the ghost haunting the Whitewater probe.” Based on a 3-year long investigation, Daniel Hopsicker discovered the ‘secret history’ the American Press was afraid to tell: Seal, the most successful drug smuggler in American history, was also-and not coincidentally-a lifelong CIA agent, one of the most famous who ever lived, active in everything from the Bay of Pigs… to Watergate…to the Kennedy Assassination.
The story of Barry Seal is America’s secret history… of what happens when guys we pay to protect us–CIA guys–go into business with guys we’re paying them to protect us against..“Made” guys. Mobsters…Organized Crime.
Ripping the ‘official story’ on the so-called “Clinton Scandals” to shreds, “Barry and ‘the boys'” breaks the biggest scoop of all about the Arkansas Drug Connection: where the money went. And goes…
Did the big-time “players” in small ‘backwards’ Arkansas–Bill Clinton, Vince Foster, Jackson Stephens, Jim Blair, Don Tyson–stand idly by while Barry Seal made billions of dollars importing cocaine through their state? Or were the “goings-on in Mena” of Barry and ‘the boys’ just the continuation of… ‘business as usual?’
This is an intriguing and very compelling and watchable video about the conspiracy behind the assassinaation: Tremendous narration:
This also is a very good documentary:

JFK and the Unspeakable
The murder of President Kennedy was a seminal event for me and for millions of Americans. It changed the course of history. It was a crushing blow to our country and to millions of people around the world. It put an abrupt end to a period of a misunderstood idealism, akin to the spirit of 1989 when the Soviet bloc to began to thaw and 2008, when our new American President was fairly elected.
Today, more than 45 years later, profound doubts persist about how President Kennedy was killed and why. My film JFK was a metaphor for all those doubts, suspicions and unanswered questions. Now an extraordinary new book offers the best account I have read of this tragedy and its significance. That book is James Douglass’s JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters. It is a book that deserves the attention of all Americans; it is one of those rare books that, by helping us understand our history, has the power to change it.
The subtitle sums up Douglass’s purpose: Why He Died and Why it Matters. In his beautifully written and exhaustively researched treatment, Douglass lays out the “motive” for Kennedy’s assassination. Simply, he traces a process of steady conversion by Kennedy from his origins as a traditional Cold Warrior to his determination to pull the world back from the edge of destruction.
