RFKjr Says Dad Had Phone Records of Calls From Jack Ruby, Guy Banister and Lee Harvey Oswald to Mafia Bosses Before JFK Mob Hit In 63'

Dallas To Mark 50th Anniversary Of JFK Assassination

Statement made by Robert F. Kennedy Jr...January 13th, 2013, RFK thought JFK assassin not alone: Then Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy had investigators do research into the assassination of his brother John F. Kennedy and found that phone records of Lee Harvey Oswald and nightclub owner Jack Ruby, who killed Oswald two days after the president’s assassination, “were like an inventory” of mafia leaders the government had been investigating. 

’Yeah I had that son of a bitch Kennedy killed. I’m glad I did. I’m sorry I couldn’t have done it myself!” These were the words of Carlos Marcello, the Mafia godfather of Louisiana and Texas. And he was talking about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

 Fat pig mob boss Carlos Marcello cuffed and stuffed in the back seat of a New Orleans cop car.

Marcello’s startling admission is in uncensored FBI files at the National Archives, detailed for the first time in a new encyclopedic book “Legacy of Secrecy.” I have been referring to this work off and on for years while the author, Lamar Waldron, completed his investigation into the murders of John and Robert Kennedy and also into the death of Dr. Martin Luther King.

Private Investigation, Cuba, Oswald, Marcello and Guy Banister: After leaving the New Orleans Police Department, Guy Banister established his own private detective agency, "Guy Banister Associates, Inc." at "434 Balter Building". In June 1960, Banister moved his office to "531 Lafayette Street" on the ground floor of the "Newman Building". Around the corner but located in the same building, with a different entrance, was the address "544 Camp Street". The address "544 Camp Street" would later be found stamped on one of the Fair Play for Cuba Committee leaflets, distributed by Lee Harvey Oswald, the alleged assassin of President John F. Kennedy.

The Newman Building at 544 Camp Street housed militant anti-Castro groups, including the Cuban Revolutionary Council, October 1961 to February 1962, as well as Sergio Arcacha Smith's Crusade to Free Cuba Committee. Banister's office was within walking distance of the New Orleans offices of the FBI, CIA, Office of Naval Intelligence and the Reily Coffee Company, Lee Harvey Oswald's employer and a supporter of anti-Castro Cubans. n 1963, Banister and anti-Castro activist David Ferrie began working for a lawyer named G. Wray Gill and his client, New Orleans Mafia boss Carlos Marcello. This involved attempts to block Marcello's deportation to Guatemala.

In the fall of 1963, the unimpeded rackets of Carlos Marcello, the violent, the anti-Communist zealot who generously funded the effort to oust Castro, were temporarily sidetracked by the need to fight deportation charges initiated by Attorney General Robert Kennedy. Former FBI agent Guy Banister, who was reputed to have maintained contact with Hoover's FBI, was helping Marcello fight the charges.

Mary Brengel, a secretary who worked for Banister at the time, discovered this relatively unreported scandal. Brengel's recollection is very definite because she was taking dictation when, in a letter, Banister referred to his efforts to assist Marcello. When Brengel expressed surprise over Banister's collusion with an organized crime boss, Banister said: "There are principles being violated, and if this goes on it could affect every citizen in the United States."

The dangerous "gait" of the self-appointed patriots who marched to the tune of J. Edgar Hoover, is predictably familiar. When Banister died, his wife came across a drawer full of the "Hands off Cuba" leaflets that Oswald, as the entire world promptly learned, had distributed in the streets of New Orleans. When Oswald was arrested, Dallas District Attorney Wade told reporters that Oswald belonged to the "Free Cuba" Committee, but mobster Jack Ruby, posing as a reporter at the very same press conference, promptly corrected Wade and indicated that Oswald belonged to the "Fair Play For Cuba" committee, a bogus New Orleans chapter of the pro-castro organization that contained a single member, Lee Harvey Oswald.

The fact that Lee Harvey Oswald worked out of the office of a Hoover loyalist like Guy Banister clearly betrays the degree to which J. Edgar Hoover controlled Oswald the patsy. Banister was an extremely violent, rabidly anti-Communist zealot who reportedly belonged to the Minutemen, a right wing paramilitary organization that promoted the need to subvert, sabotage and murder Communists. The Minutemen publication On Target summed up his domestic philosophy very succinctly through the warning: "Traitors beware. Even now the cross hairs are on the back of your necks."

In 1962, Banister associate, David Ferrie, a like-minded anti-Communist zealot, was reportedly training exiles in paramilitary tactics at a secret camp across Lake Ponchartrain, at the behest of the CIA. In 1963, Ferrie worked very closely with both Banister and Marcello, and according to Banister's secretary, Mafia associate Johnny Roselli and former FBI agent Maheau also had dealings with Banister's office in 1963.

Given the nature of the company that surrounded Oswald, the fact that he was a handpicked patsy is not idle speculation. Indeed, J. Edgar Hoover Hoover, Robert Maheau, Guy Banister, David Ferrie, Johnny Roselli and Jack Ruby all extended and expected favours from the mob, they were all heavily involved in efforts to oust Castro, and they all expected prosecutorial immunity because they were "patriots" who allegedly acted in the best interests of the national security of the United States.

It takes an extreme stretch of credibility to accept the claim that this cabal of anti-Kennedy fanatics is not responsible for framing Lee Harvey Oswald. Compared to the secret world of Maheau, Banister, Marcello, Hoover and the like, the life of Lee Harvey Oswald is an open book. There is certainly not a single trace of credible evidence which suggests that Lee Harvey Oswald was the crazed subversive that Hoover claimed he was. It is, after all, J. Edgar Hoover who is ultimately responsible for producing frivolous evidence in attempt to frame Oswald.

The staged or doctored, universally publicized photograph [reportedly taken by Marina Oswald] that depicts Oswald with rifle and leftist literature reflects scripted imagery without foundation. If Hoover was serious about using photographic evidence to link Oswald to the Kennedy assassination, he could have easily publicized photographs that were directly linked to the murder of John F. Kennedy. Indeed, the available record of photographic evidence was so conclusive that even the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository was reportedly captured on film precisely when Oswald was alleged to have shot the President.

The photographic evidence alone, much of which was never made public because the FBI reportedly seized film even before it was developed, could have easily been used to conclusively prove the guilt or the innocence of Lee Harvey Oswald. In retrospect, framing Lee Harvey Oswald was typical of the abuse that Hoover commonly practised -there was nothing unusual about it.
