I have a hard time believing that Roselli was involved in the actual operation of the assasination. Roselli was far from a heavy, he was a vegas guy,
a contact between the mafia and the government and other civilians. To involve him at that level would have been idiotic for the CIA or any other
government agency, much less the mafia because it would have ruined his cover. Roselli was a poor man's Frank Costello, he hobnobbed with the powers
that be to help out his mob friends get out of trouble, get business contracts, and act as a legit front. No way he would be involved in this so
directly, he had no experience with mob hits, much less miltiary type assasinations.
It is my opinion that while the Mob and CIA worked together extensively they both were always out to exploit the other and rarely worked together on
something. The CIA used the mob in order to launder money and exploit their contacts in the drug business. The mob used the CIA pretty much to fool
around with them, they tried to take as much money from them, like accepting bogus contracts on Castro, so that they would be allowed to steal from
the public with impunity. Honestly there were few CIA types who could operate on the mob's level and vice versa. Most mob guys of that time save
for Giancana, Lansky, Marcello were shiftless morons. Giancana, Lansky, and Marcello were just shiftless. Everything they did with the CIA failed
miserably, on purpose. The only reason the mob was involved was to continue to use their influence for as long as possible. On the same level the
mob was not able to pull off the things the CIA cooked up for them to do, no Mob could shoot a president in a moving car from 100 yards. This is just
not their MO. The CIA involved them in one off James Bond type junk just to gain their trust, so they could esentially take over their drug running
opertaions, which they did, over time. Both sides were screwing the other the whole time.
I've read this guys story extensively, and I just don't buy it. This files guy doesn't give any more info than anybody who has read a couple
conspiracy books already wouldn't know. I have no doubt he was involved with the military/CIA in the cuban bay of pigs, gun running operations. He
may have been in dallas, maybe even in dealey plaza that day, as there were tons of mafia guys, CIA agents, military types, cubans, etc there just to
hide the real killers. He wasn't a pro assasin, pros were on this. He may have been involved on some level as it appears he had the same job as
Ferrie did with the cubans but he wasn't a shooter.
