Isn't it just common knowledge that back then and still today the Mafia and the CIA are brothers in arms? Whatever the CIA simply can't get away with, the Mafia does, and vice versa. It's always been a perfect fit. The proverbial hand in glove. Why would they destroy such a perfect relationship?
Not then as far as I'm aware, although of course I wasn't even born until the 90's..
I believe if anything though - the fact the Mafia and the CIA have been working together quite actively - It's a recent revelation due to the ARRB's releases.
He went on to say that he is convinced that a lone gunman wasn't solely responsible for the assassination of his uncle, President John F. Kennedy and added that his father thought the Warren Commission, which concluded Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in killing the president, was a 'shoddy piece of craftsmanship,' and that he, too, questioned the report. "The evidence at this point I think is very, very convincing that it was not a lone gunman," he said but not go on to share his theories of whom else might have been involved.
When Rose asked if he believed his father, the U.S. attorney general at the time of his brother's death, might have felt a sense of guilt because of the possible link between his very aggressive efforts against organized crime and the assassination Kennedy replied: "I think that's true. He talked about that. He publicly supported the Warren Commission report but privately he was dismissive of it." He went on to say that his father had investigators do heir own research into the assassination and found that phone records of Oswald and nightclub owner Jack Ruby, who killed Oswald two days after the president's assassination, were "like an inventory" of mafia leaders the government had been investigating and that his father was fairly convinced that others were involved.
A television was wheeled in front of me and on it was playing a video of the JFK assassination. The man that was sitting opposite me asked who I thought shot JFK. I naturally said Lee Harvey Oswald. All three of the men laughed, and the video changed to show that the shot that killed JFK actually came from the front seat of the car. It is very hard to make out in the videos that we normally see, but in the version that this man was showing me, it was obvious that the driver of the car was the one who shot JFK. The man asked if I thought that he was capable of doing this, and I did not know what to say. He told me that he was capable of anything.
Kennedy replied: 'I think that's true. He talked about that. He publicly supported the Warren Commission report but privately he was dismissive of it.'

He said his father, later elected U.S. senator in New York, was 'fairly convinced' that others were involved.
