November 22, 1963, is one of the pivotal dates in American history. It may also be one of the most controversial. Since President John F. Kennedy was killed that day in Dallas, there have been millions of theories as to who killed Kennedy. The official report is that a former Marine, and practicing Communist, Lee Harvey Oswald, was the lone gunmen, shooting the president as the presidential motorcade drove by the Texas School Book Depository. But from there, the facts get messy. One constant among the various theories is that the Mafia was involved. Whether acting alone, or with the help of anti-Castro Cubans or the CIA, the “Mafia-did-it” theory is one of the more popular conspiracies in the Kennedy assassination.
