"The one who derives advantage from the crime is the one who committed it."
Dallas, Texas (JFKASSASSINATION) The final chapter of Roger Stone's "The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ," written with Mike Colapietro, begins with these words..."Cui prodest scelus, est fecit."
We are just finishing up reading this well-researched and most enlightening book.
Stone gets right to the point in the Preface...
"...Lyndon Baines Johnson had John Fitzgerald Kennedy murdered in Dallas to become president himself and to avert the precipitous political and legal fall that was about to beset him."
Roger Stone admits that he waited so long to write this book on the advice of President Richard Nixon's Attorney General John Mitchell who counseled him to "wait until the fiftieth anniversary."
The Preface concludes by paying homage to the many citizens "who have doubted the government's version of events," such as Mark Lane, Fletcher Prouty, Jim Marrs, Harold Weisberg, Sylvia Meagher, Robert Morrow and many many others.
Stone admits that his efforts were "built on the work of" the likes of "LBJ: The Mastermind of the JFK Assassination," by Phillip F. Nelson, "Blood, Money and Power," by Barr McClellan, "The Men on the Sixth Floor," by Glen Sample and Mark Collom, and "The Texas Connection," by Craig Zirbel.
Inside cover notes...

LBJ was not just shooting his way into the White House, he was avoiding imminent personal destruction at the hands of the Kennedys."
