Acknowledge LBJ's Depravity

RECEIVED Mon., Nov. 11, 2013

Dear Editor,
    With the publication of Roger Stone's book indicting Lyndon Johnson in the JFK assassination (The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ), I ask: When in polite society in Austin and Texas can we finally refer to Lyndon Johnson for what he was? A man whose corruption was of biblical proportions and a serial murderer who, in the words of Stone, "would order up a murder just as you or I would order a ham sandwich."
    Stone reveals that not only did Richard Nixon, Henry Cabot Lodge Jr., Barry Goldwater, and the KGB all conclude that LBJ did it, but also that Nixon immediately recognized the murderer of Lee Harvey Oswald – Jack Ruby – as a "Lyndon Johnson man" from the 1940s and a paid informant for the House Un-American Activities Committee.
    After 50 years, can we finally acknowledge the hellish depravity of LBJ?
