Carlos Marcello i. person at heart of the conspiracy ii. Comes here as an alien b. Kennedy deports Marcello – Marcello hated Robert Kennedy and didn’t want his elected as president c. Johnson would become president if he killed Kennedy d. Magic bullet 2. JFK casualty of the Cold War, Person a. Oswald shot Kennedy because he maintained communist leanings (he spent time in Russia) b. Fair play for Cuba (organization he was involved in) 3. James Reston Jr., The Accidental Victim a. Oswald was in marine core b. Got honorable discharge c. Then, he had a dishonorable discharge. So, when Oswald shot, he was shooting at Connolly because he didn’t or hadn’t gotten to give him back his honorable discharge. Notes Taken April 11 th JFK – New Frontier – none of his ideas get passed while he was in office 1. Taxcut: Walter Heller 2. Civil Rights – anti-discriminatory laws that will deal with south policies 3. Health insurance for the elderly 4. Anti-poverty: invisible poor 5. Federal aid to education LBJ: The Great Society 1.
