A new book claims that three mob bosses were behind President John F. Kennedy’s assassination.
Authors Lamar Waldron and Thom Hartmann also say that law enforcement agencies protected the three Mafiosi because they had infiltrated a plan to invade Cuba, the Tampa Tribune reported.

Tampa mob boss Santo Trafficante Jr., according to the book Ultimate Sacrifice, planned to have Kennedy killed in Tampa. But the attempt misfired and Trafficante instead arranged with New Orleans boss Carlos Marcello for the assassination in Dallas on Nov. 23, 1963.

While conspiracy theorists have been pitching the mob connection for years, linking it to Cuba is new. Waldron and Hartmann say that the mobsters not only hated Kennedy because of his brother’s investigations but wanted to get Castro out of Cuba to return to their profitable businesses there.
