It seems pretty obvious to me that JFK was assassinated by bankers because he was trying to undermine the central bank like Lincoln did with his greenbacks.

After reading everything I could in the last 25 years or so, my calculation is that the CIA set it up and the mafia carried it out, or vice versa.
I have never bought into the LHO theory. He was obviously an agent of some kind, set up to take the fall. I mean even the cover story is bogus. Why would a supposed communist sympathizer kill a fellow supposed communist sympathizer? I'll be back after my drive to Tday celebrations to post more about this.

so...........WHAT IS YOUR TAKE ON IT???
My take on it is that Lee Harvey Oswald was such an irate Communist nut that he emigrated to the Soviet Union and even the Soviet Union was glad to let him emigrate back. We know he was a crack shot becuase he was in the Marines, and let's face it, the Marines know how to teach people to shoot. We know he owned the same kind of rifle they found in the book depository because his own wife took a picture of him holding one. Plus it's a documented fact that he was an employee at the book depository overlooking JFK's travel route, and had access to the room where the rifle was found.
Thus, my take on it is that it's unnecessarily convoluted to the point of being absurd for any conspirators to line up someone so uniquely trained, uniquely politically motivated, and be placed in such a unique position to assassinate JFK, only to turn around and have someone else do it. If people want to believe there were additional conspirators, fine, but Lee Harvey Oswald was nonetheless still up to his eyeballs in the conspiracy.
“I can assure you that Lee Harvey Oswald loved President Kennedy," said Judyth Vary Baker, who dated Oswald. "He wasn't the president's assassin."
Baker was just 19-years old and working on cancer research when she met and fell in love with Oswald.
"We were immediately attracted to each other," she said. "He was only 23."
Baker said they soon became lovers, and later she learned the cancer project she was working on was to develop a biological weapon to kill Cuba's Fidel Castro.
She claims Oswald confided in her.
"I learned that he was a spy in Russia for the U.S.," she said.
Now 70 years old, Baker is in Seattle to promote her new book, called "Me and Lee: How I came to Know, Love and Lose Lee Harvey Oswald."
In the book, she describes bonding with Oswald over chess and a love of Russian literature.
She insists Oswald entered an assassination group trying to kill Castro and encountered elements that loathed America's president as much as Cuba's.
She said Oswald called her 37 hours before the Kennedy assassination, suggesting he was going to be framed.
"He said, 'I'm afraid I've told you too much and your life might be in danger,'" she said.
Two days later, Baker said she watched her lover gunned down on television.
"I wanted to kill myself," she said.
Baker said she's not a conspiracy theorist and insists she's paid a price for sharing her past.”
