Dallas author shares theory on JFK death

Dallas historian unveils truth in Kennedy conspiracy
When the Warren Commission’s report on the assassination of John F. Kennedy was made public in September 1964, Jim Gatewood was one of many people who were skeptical of the findings. Gatewood, a Dallas historian and author, spoke to Kiwanis Club members about the report at the group’s meeting Thursday.
“I was alarmed when the Warren Commission came out,” Gatewood said. “It’s what they left out that made it a joke.”
An FBI investigation under Director J. Edgar Hoover was also criticized as not being thoroughly conducted. Both the CIA and FBI had ties to the Mafia, Gatewood said. Hoover worked with the mob, and was instructed not to use the words “Mafia” or “conspiracy” in his report.
“J. Edgar Hoover was in the Mafia’s pocket,” Gatewood said. “He was on their payroll.”
Since the assassination, a lot of information has surfaced in Dallas about the circumstances surrounding the assassination. In November 2003, 40 years after the Kennedy assassination, the Dallas County Assassination Review Board was formed to organize the information and make it public.
