Discovery to air specials on JFK assassination
Advertisement
#1
Discovery will air specials on the assassination of US president John F Kennedy.The US broadcaster said it has new information and never before heard details of a startling confession, raising new questions on just who was behind the 1963 assassination of Kennedy and the subsequent killing of Lee Harvey Oswald by Jack Ruby.

The broadcaster will air the theories and findings in two specials - Did The Mob Kill JFK? and JFK: The Ruby Connection on 22 November.

"I had the little bastard killed. He was a thorn in my shoe". According to a secret FBI informant these were the words of his cellmate, Carlos Marcello, the notorious New Orleans mafia boss (one of America's most powerful mafia godfathers) confessing to his role in orchestrating the Kennedy assassination and featured in Did The Mob Kill JFK?

Almost half a century after the assassination, the informant has come forward to provide an exclusive interview that may solve one of the nation's most enduring mysteries and re-write history.

With an exclusive interview with the informant, this special tracks the nexus of organised crime, the Justice Department, the CIA and attempts to overthrow Cuban leader Fidel Castro culminating in that fateful day in Dallas. Marcello, who controlled mob operations in Louisiana and Texas, had long been suspected in having a hand in the Kennedy assassination.

Did The Mob Kill JFK? links Marcello with both Oswald and Ruby, as the godfather reveals in his confession that he brought Lee Harvey Oswald into the plot, telling the informant that "He was my man. He did what the hell I told him to do." Marcello also admits that Dallas strip club owner Jack Ruby was deeply in debt and "owed him big."

What was the real Ruby/Oswald connection? With precision and a meticulous level of detail, the producers of JFK: The Ruby Connection sets out to answer this by recreating and restaging the 24 November shooting of Oswald.
