Robert Blakley still insists that the mob got JFK--but admits he couldn't prove it in court





As chief counsel and staff director to the U.S. House Select Committee on Assassinations from 1977 to 1979, G. Robert Blakey --- who had worked in the Justice Department in the JFK White House years --- led the later investigation into JFK's death.

This week --- 43 years after the assassination --- the professor and O'Neill Chair in Law at the University of Notre Dame Law School, and author of "Fatal Hour: The Assassination of President Kennedy by Organized Crime," gave a lecture on the Kennedy assassination Nov. 20 at Mount St. Mary's College as well as an earlier phone interview to The Tidings from South Bend, Indiana....

In his own book, Blakey says he's not being a prosecutor, because he doesn't think he could prove his conspiracy case beyond a reasonable doubt against mob bosses Carlos Marcello and Santo Trafficante. But as a historian who has poured over all the available evidence, he can surely offer a theory that holds most of that evidence together.
