-Oswald was the lone gunman
-Castro killed JFK
-The Russians did it
-Oswald acted alone but an SS agent in the car behind Kennedy accidently fired the fatal head shot
-The mob did it single handedly

On the one hand neither death could have been a conspiracy as it would be far too complicated to set up. On the other hand they had to be because there were so many weird things about both cases and too many people in high places who desired these high profile deaths benefited from them. In both cases screwups were made by those in charge of protecting the person who ended up dead.

Dennis David’s best recollection when interviewed by the ARRB staff in 1997 was that this event occurred at about 6:45 PM; the precise time of the event was fixed with precision in 1997 when the ARRB staff acquired the November 26th, 1963 typed after-action report of USMC Sergeant Roger Boyajian, whose Marine Barracks security detail had provided physical security during the autopsy. (Mr. Boyajian still had an onionskin carbon copy of the report in 1997, and sent the ARRB a high-quality photocopy, which he authenticated by letter.) In his after-action report, which pertained only to the physical security provided for President Kennedy’s autopsy, Boyajian wrote: “At approximately 1835 the casket was received at the morgue entrance and taken inside.” This pins down much more accurately Dennis David’s estimate to the ARRB staff that the shipping casket event had taken place at about 6:45 PM. The military time of 1835 hours (6:35 PM civilian time) in Boyajian’s report, which was a contemporaneous document typed four days after the autopsy, trumps Dennis David’sestimate in 1997 (very accurate, as it turns out) of 6:45 PM, and can be authoritatively considered the true arrival time of the shipping casket. Later on, during the night of the autopsy, after the autopsy had been concluded, in response to a question from HM1 Dennis David, Dr. J Thornton Boswell, one of the three pathologists who had conducted JFK’s autopsy, confirmed to David that JFK had indeed been in the shipping casket his working party had unloaded from the Hearse at the morgue loading dock hours earlier. [David told Lifton in 1979 that both Dr. Humes and Dr. Boswell (the two Navy pathologists who participated in the autopsy) had been present on the loading dock, along with their commanding officer, Captain Stover, and what he believed to be the Surgeons General of the Army and Air Force.]
LBJ: "Have you established any more about the visit to the Soviet embassy in Mexico in September?"
Hoover: "No, that's one angle that's very confusing, for this reason --- we have up here the tape and the photograph of the man who was at the Soviet embassy, using Oswald's name. That picture and the tape do not correspond to this man's voice, nor to his appearance. In other words, it appears that there is a second person who was at the Soviet embassy down there. We do have a copy of a letter in Washington [a November 9, 1963, letter that Oswald began by referring to 'my meetings with comrade Kostin in the Embassy of the Soviet Union, Mexico City, Mexico,' which was interpreted to mean Kostikov] ....Now if we can indentify this man who was at the ... Soviet embassy in Mexico City..."
His friend e. e. cummings suggested the contradictions in James Angleton in a letter he wrote to Angleton's wife: "What a miracle of momentous complexity is the Poet."
It was Angleton's staff member, Ann Egerter, who opened Oswald's 201 SIG file on Dec. 9, 1960. Egerter was questioned by the HSCA. They knew they could not expect her, as a CIA employee, to answer truthfully, even under oath, the question whether Oswald was a CIA agent. Allen Dulles, Kennedy's fired CIA director, had said in the January 27, 1964, closed-door Warren Commission meeting that no CIA employee, even under oath, should ever say truthfully if Oswald (or anyone else) was in fact a CIA agent.

Not going to flip through all of these pages at the moment. I subscribe to the theory that it was a CIA job led by E. Howard Hunt with LBJ's backing. The banking cartels/other PTB wanted JFK out of the way because he upset the balance of power.

I think that a lot of the people that were hit after Kennedy's death were mostly innocent targets to keep the distance of the Conspiracy going Elsewhere

She was collecting bits of her husband's head. The driver did not shoot him. That's one of the silliest theories around, have you looked into the evidence much?
You mess with the bankers, you get shot.

In a way I have always felt RFKs story was undersold, more significant, and far greater reaching.
His brother was the star, Bobbie was a genuine good moral man, that worked harder than his brother ever did.
As far as we are concerned, any American citizen, male or female, who renounces his citizenship in favor of the Soviet Union, is entitled to the protection of this government in two particulars only. The State Department should ask him two questions: Was he drunk or sober when he did it? Did he seem to have all his marbles with him at the time?"
Having settled these questions to its own satisfaction, the goverment and people of the United States should wave him good-bye and see to it that his name is wiped off our national books forever, and he never be allowed to set foot in this country again, dead or alive.
