A Nice Fat Conspiracy Theory: The True Story Of JFK's Assassination Revealed?

I hate to play into these conspiracy type stories but the JFK assassination is interesting and, as far as I can tell, the story and the "lost documents" are legit.

Article at the link:

Lost documents said to be a "conspiracy theorist's dream come true" have been unearthed which suggest that Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby plotted together to kill President John F Kennedy.

According to the Warren Commission, the official inquiry into the assassination, Oswald acted alone when he shot Kennedy as the president's motorcade swept past the Texas School Book Depository in Dallas. Two days later, Ruby shot Oswald dead as police were escorting him for questioning.

The boxes of evidence, found in an old safe in a Dallas courthouse, include a transcript of a conversation said to be between the pair discussing how they would carry out the assassination on behalf of the Mafia.

The transcript claims that the real target of the Mob was the president's brother, Robert Kennedy, the attorney general, himself later assassinated. Robert had launched a campaign against the criminal underworld.

In the alleged conversation, Ruby, a nightclub owner, and Oswald decide that it would be easier to kill the president than his brother and that JFK's death would end the inquiry just as effectively.

They go into it in much greater depth in the article if you're interested in that kind of thing.

H/t Allah
