On the heels of the first piece, a short note about motive. With a crime like this, there has to be a motive. But when the victim is the president of the US, there are so many people and so many motives as to make it bewildering to think about. Anti-Castro Cubans felt betrayed. Pro-Castro Cubans had a motive too. The Soviets had a hundred different reasons. The Mob had their own. The CIA had a motive. Lyndon Johnson had a motive. The military (and the rest of the military-industrial complex) had a motive. And almost all of these were organizations that essentially killed people as part of the business model. Unlike a detective novel where we can limit the suspects based on motive, almost anybody evenly remotely suspect had a sufficient motive. In short, deducing anything based on who had a motive is a pointless task.
