Contract on America: The Mafia Murder of President John F. Kennedy Reviews
This is a meticulously researched and very well documented study of the Mafia's probable involvement in the murder of John F. Kennedy. It does not claim that the Mob acted alone. While it does suggest that the New Orleans Mafia and possibly the Teamsters initiated the hit, all the usual suspects are there as well: right-wing capitalists, compromised police officials, disgruntled Cubans, rogue C.I.A. agents and the leadership of the F.B.I.In its narrowest focus, Contract on America is about Jack Ruby (aka Jack Rubenstein of Chicago), his life, his involvements with organized crime in the USA and in Cuba and his role in both the murders of Kennedy and Oswald. In its broadest scope, Contract on America is about the influence of the Mafia in the United States since the thirties. This influence extended to the White House under Presidents Johnson, Nixon and Reagan, but the Kennedy administration more than any other had actively opposed it.While not definitively claiming the Mob initiated the murders of Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King and Malcolm X, author Scheim ends his book by adducing evidence suggestive of such.Supplementing the text are about 150 pages of documentary evidence for the author's contentions.
I found this book disturbing and frightening. It chronicles mafia infiltration and dominance in vice, murder and the U. S. government. It contains extensive footnotes and appendix. It illustrates the society based on greed, fear, exploitation, and personal expendability.
Could had been the Mafia, or Cubans, or the CIA, or Lyndon Johnson, or the Pentagon, for whatever their many reasons in killing JFK in Dallas that fateful November morning, but maybe the actual truth will finally be revealed and fully disclosed in a few decades and we all will learn who was involved besides Oswald. Until then there's just too many unanswered questions that the Warren Commission did not bother following through with (shades of the 9/11 Commission on their terrible, lack luster investigation).Though this book does have a solid argument that it was Mafia related. They hated both John and Robert Kennedy and were in a position to arrange the hits (same with the CIA). Oswald did not act alone and was the Patsy to what transpired.
I wrote appalling in my little book of booksguess I was struck by the evidencedon't know whether or not to recommend this one, but since I read it, I must have thought it was ok or worth reading or would have noted this
As close to the truth as we are likely to get. Meticulously researched, sourced and footnoted.
