I think is the most valid
I believe that the mafia did it because the CIA had contacts with organized crime families to discuss assassinating Fidel Castro,
The mob was heavily invested in casinos and other profitable investments in Cuba before Castro's communist revolution. Because Kennedy's Bay of Pigs invasion failed it ended any future of American organized crime returning to Cuba and making the mafia very angry at Kennedy.
Another reason that i feel that the mafia did it was because the mob did not like Kennedy's crusading younger brother Attorney General Robert Kennedy. One theory is that the Mob was angry with efforts by brother Robert Kennedy, who served as Attorney General during the Kennedy administration, to crack down on organized crime. A major piece of evidence that links the mafia to the assassination of Kennedy is Jack Ruby, the Dallas nightclub owner with known mafia connections, who killed Lee Harvey Oswald two days after his arrest.
The Warren Commission cleared the mafia from being involved in the assassination. The House Committee on Assassinations found that the mafia was not involved in a conspiracy, but did not rule out that individuals with mob ties were part of the plot leaving a possible link between the mafia and the assassination of JFK
The CIA Kennedy assassination theory is a well known JFK assassination conspiracy theory. The CIA's potential involvement was frequently mentioned during the 1960s and 1970s when the CIA was involved in plots to assassinate foreign leader Fidel Castro. Kennedy was quoted as telling an official within his administration: "I want to splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds." According to author James Douglass, Kennedy was assassinated because he was turning away from the Cold War and seeking a negotiated peace with the Soviet Union. Accusations and confessions of and by alleged conspirators, as well as official government reports citing the CIA as uncooperative in investigations, have renewed interest in this theory.
Most conspiracy theories somehow involve the government to some capacity. Most times it’s the CIA that gets blamed for inexplicable activities. This is due to the secretive nature of the Central Intelligence Agency and their reputation for political assassinations.
Specifically, the theory regarding the CIA suggests that Oswald was a one of their operatives whose FBI file was altered to make it appear that he was a communist and lone wolf. In the end, reports from 1978 state that there was no indication that Oswald “had ever had contact with the Agency.”
It’s known that the CIA and Mafia families were in cahoots. The Mafia had it out for Fidel Castro, Cuba’s Communist leader in an attempt to move their business of casinos and other lucrative investments before the revolution. Thanks to Kennedy’s failed invasion of Bay of Pigs, any hopes of American organized crime returning to Cuba and infuriated the mafia.
In addition, the mob was not happy about Kennedy’s younger brother, Attorney General Robert Kennedy, and hoped that his influence would be stopped in his brother was killed.
There are a few versions of this theory. One is that the CIA already had plans in place for the mob to kill Castro, and ended up wanting them to take care of Kennedy as well. Another idea is that anti-Castro Cubans were to pay the Mafia to kill Kennedy.
Adding to the tangled drama of the Mafia theory, Jack Ruby, a Dallas nightclub owner with known mafia connections, killed Lee Harvey Oswald just two days after being arrested.
In the end, the Mafia was dismissed as a suspect by the Warren Commission, but the House Committee on Assassinations did not rule out that individuals with mob ties were part of the plot.
One of the most widely-held theories about the death of JFK is that there was a second shooter hidden on a grassy knoll behind a picket fence that was to the right of his limo.
A shot from the grassy knoll would have meant two shooters fired at Kennedy in sequence with split-second precision. Oswald, shooting from his perch in the Depository, and someone else.
Many Americans believe an amateur picture taken by Mary Moorman captured “The Badgeman” in the act of firing at the president.
In her grainy pictures, taken from the opposite side of the grassy knoll as Kennedy’s car passed, a shadowy figure appears to lift a rifle. What looks to be a badge of some sort gleams on his shoulder.
Skeptics scoff at the idea that the vague outline is a second shooter in uniform, but many believe Moorman caught a Dallas police officer firing at Kennedy, or another assassin hiding in plain sight in a cop’s uniform.
Evidence pointing towards a second shooter such as this report that states: ‘In a December 2007 report on a scientific analysis of the bullet fragments from the JFK assassination a finding of more than one shooter is made clear. There is no possibility that Oswald could have been the only shooter in the JFK killing. If he was involved at all in the assassination plot the forensic analysis shows that at least 2 guns were used. If Oswald was a shooter then he had to have at least one associate in the murder of the President.
Dr. Hughes testified that 40 to 50 bullet fragments were found in JFK's brain and skull at autopsy. This clearly makes it impossible for the mortal wound to have come from Oswald's rifle. This would be from a fragmentation type round like a hollow point or exploding cartridge. The full metal jacket military rounds used in the Italian Carcano rifle owned by Oswald, if it were used and fired from behind JFK, could not and would not have resulted in the type of head explosion clearly visible in the Zapruder film. Three spent cartridges found on the 6th floor where full metal jacket rounds, none were hollow point fragmenting rounds. It was impossible for the shot that killed JFK to have come from the rifle found on the 6th floor’.
This information helps prove the possibility of a second shooter because it uses modern a modern scientific analysis, which is more advanced than the technology used when the initial report on the assassination was conducted, showing that it was highly likely that there was a second shooter. it also explains that the type of bullets used in Oswald's rifle couldn't have caused the fatal wound Kennedy received.
JFK wasn’t killed by aliens — but he was shot to prevent him from probing top-secret U.S. government investigations of UFO sightings, according to theorists.
Two authors came forward in recent years claiming to have discovered a classified memo written by JFK to the CIA.
In it, the president asks the CIA director to pull all files relating to “UFOs,” and be ready to debrief him in the near future.
The memo — which has never been authenticated and can’t be found in JFK’s official archives — was dated Nov. 12, 1963. Kennedy was killed 10 days later. The timing of his death and the recent discovery of the memo — which many believe to be bogus — has created one of the more bizarre assassination theories.
