Overview

The sensational New York Times bestseller, now in paperback.

Find out how and why LBJ had JFK assassinated.

The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ hit the New York Times bestseller list the week of the 50th Anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Consummate political insider Roger Stone makes a compelling case that Lyndon Baines Johnson had the motive, means, and opportunity to orchestrate the murder of JFK. Stone maps out the case that LBJ blackmailed his way on the ticket in 1960 and was being dumped in 1964 to face prosecution for corruption at the hands of his nemesis attorney Robert Kennedy. Stone uses fingerprint evidence and testimony to prove JFK was shot by a long-time LBJ hit man—not Lee Harvey Oswald.

President Johnson would use power from his personal connections in Texas, from the criminal underworld, and from the United States government to escape an untimely end in politics and to seize even greater power. President Johnson, the thirty-sixth president of the United States, was the driving force behind a conspiracy to murder President Kennedy on November 22, 1963.

In The Man Who Killed Kennedy, you will find out how and why he did it.

Legendary political operative and strategist Roger Stone has gathered documents and uses his firsthand knowledge to construct the ultimate tome to prove that LBJ was not only involved in JFK’s assassination, but was in fact the mastermind.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

A consummate political insider, Roger Stone views the JFK assassination through the prism of a murder investigator's first question, cui bono (who benefits)? Stone's shocking answer is that the primary suspect has been hiding in plain sight for 50 years: LBJ. A riveting account.
—Former U.S. Attorney David Marston

I think this is probably the most definitive book . . . the most speculation free and certainly the most rubbish free work I have ever read on the subject. You would be doing yourself an enormous favor to get it, read it, digest in, and maybe read it again.
—John B. Wells, Coast to Coast

Any serious student of politics or history should read Roger Stone's stunning new book The Man Who Killed Kennedy.
—Judge Andrew P. Napolitano

Roger Stone nails LBJ for JFK murder!
—James O' Keefe III, journalist, filmmaker

Stone's evidence is compelling and fascinating.
—Dick Morris, political author, commentator, and consultant

GREAT book, you have it covered very well.
—Phil Nelson, author of LBJ: The Mastermind of the JFK Assassination

Roger Stone is likely the only person who both had access to higher levels of government and is willing to stake his reputation on this particular theory.

Stone’s indictment of Lyndon Johnson deserves to be taken more seriously than anyone else’s.

Another in the long line of JFK assassination conspiracy books. The first sentence in the book is: "I recognize that those who question the government's official contentions regarding the assassination of John F. Kennedy are labeled by many in the mainstream media as 'nuts,' 'kooks' and worse." Stone--who shares a byline with journalist Colapietro but writes very personally throughout--uses the rest of the preface to explain why he believes his personal knowledge of political players makes him different. Unfortunately, he shoots himself in the foot. He certainly has political chops, but his pro–Richard Nixon bias is extreme. Further, he seems to hate Lyndon Johnson purely out of Nixon loyalty. After introducing himself, Stone's writing lacks the cohesion that would make his argument believable. He presents conclusions as a given long before presenting his supporting evidence and jumps from topic to topic and scene to scene with few transitions. In one memorable section about how Nixon learned of the assassination, Stone inserts a few paragraphs midstory about Johnson trying to keep Nixon from winning in 1968. In the end, readers are unsure of how Nixon's lines of communication have anything to do with who killed Kennedy and are left wondering why a former Democratic president wouldn't try to keep a Republican from winning the position. Stone does present some compelling evidence for his argument, but the scattered format and hatred for Johnson make it difficult to focus on those portions. He is at his most clear and convincing when simply pointing out the likelihood that there was some conspiracy afoot in the assassination rather than trying to prove that Johnson was at the helm. Stone may be right, but his book is unlikely to convince anyone who doesn't already agree.

I just read Stone's "The Man Who Killed Kennedy." The book does a great job of presenting evidence that has been verified in many books before, plus it adds a new dimension of evidence pointing straight at LBJ, the CIA, and big oil business men in Texas. I also just read articles in Texas Monthly, based in Dallas, that still endeavors to shift the blame away from Dallas and minimize the part their politically corrupt local forces played in the murder. This is just my opinion. It amazes me that after 50 years, there are so many people trying to erase the strong evidence that points to a political, mafia, and greed conspiracy ... I think they all just want a "piece$ of the action." The Kennedys, LBJ, CIA, Hoover, Dallas police, and the mafia, were all equally bad, evil, or whatever you wish to use to describe them, but I do not believe the "patsy" Oswald was ever more than a minor player duped into becoming the fall guy for a well orchestrated murder scheme involving many of this country's most celebrated politicians. The Kennedy brothers were well on their way to revealing a network of corruptness outdone only by their own family.

The book is packed full of historical facts of the era that were hidden, ignored, or swepted under the rug. As a combat vet in Viet Nam, I know for a fact that JFK was shot in the front of his head. There is no conspiricy 'theory' there WAS a conspericey. This book blows O'Riely's book out of the water. Do yourself a favor - read the book and come to your own conclusions !

I remember a picture of johnson looking down upon mrs. Kennedy just after he was sworn ln. It was ln a book my dad had gotten about a year after he was killed. He looked at her with such an evil smile on his face. I told my dad "he did it". I was only 16, but I still remember that moment of clarity. Now I know I was right, as this book fills in all the gaps in the story. It was a great read. Hard to put down.

A lot can be said about the JFK killing, LBJ, and Roger Stone. Caught Stone's best & worst dressed in Huff Post last year, and figured I'd give this book a shot. Did my fair amount of research on Roger Stone and while I disagree with his tactics, he has no doubt been close to powerful people who knew many things about the JFK assassination. We all know LBJ to be a dirty SOB, good to see someone not afraid to call him out. I believe that the connections he made in this book are valid....out of many who have written about JFK, Stone definitely has had the access to information and people that others have not.

A spectacular addition to the historical record on the JFK assassination - the final nail into the murderous legacy of Lyndon Baines Johnson. LBJ murdered JFK: Nixon, Goldwater, Henry Cabot Lodge, William Casey and KGB all knew it.

A total paradigm shift. An amazing revelation of political forces in play on that fateful day. A masterful detail explanation of unreported events, casting complete discredit on the Warren Commission.

I was 15 years old and living in the little town of Mart in east Texas when the Cuban Missile Crisis took place. All these years I couldn't understand what really happened and who assassinated President Kennedy. The day Roger Stone's book was ready to purchase I ran to Barnes and Noble and got "THE MAN WHO KILLED KENNEDY:THE CASE AGAINST LBJ. I started reading and couldn't put in down and read the book in three day's! Now all of my question's have been answered. I was amazed at the conversations with political insiders and all that was revealed about the Bay of Pigs and the assassination of Kennedy. Roger Stone combines decades of political knowledge with cutting edge research to also back up the Kennedy assassination. It's the best one I've read to this day.

He names names and supports each chapter with references. So this is not to be dismissed. And he calls other authors, such as Caro, to task for not naming some of the names he names. And he also states that he once asked Caro in person about such an omission, to which Caro reacted very aggressively - and then never contacted him. If true, what else is also true?
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
It was a great read. The evidence is very compelling, LBJ did it and Stone proves it. I would expect this book to become the go-to reference on the assassination henceforth.

If one believes everything in this bok a case can be made that pretty damning about LBJ. I, for one, will not believe the story about LBJ and Nixon sharing the TONS of gold found in the New Mexico Mtns. There are other errors which make me wonder about some of the other stories he tells. But the book is written sort of like a whodunit, with the answer being, you guessed it, LBJ . I enjoyed the book and will do some other research to see if what I believe to be mistakes are really mistakes.

This book sheds light on a completely different set of facts than what the Warren Commission published. There was a conspiracy involving LBJ, certain members of the CIA and FBI, Texas oilmen and the Mob. All had an interest in getting rid of JFK and RFK. Well researched and documented. Just shows how a massive cover up can take place.

This book is an interesting read; however, it contains so many inaccuracies that its whole credibility must be challenged.  On top of which, Mr. Stone's conclusions require that LBJ, the Mob, FBI, CIA, and Secret Service were all involved and that they have all kept their mouths shut.  Just some inaccuracies:  He refers to "Richard" Maheu, (who was associated with Howard Hughes and a former FBI Agent) yet his first name was Robert.  He also states that  in 1970, when George HW Bust was made US Ambassador to the the UN and live in the Waldorf Towers in New York, that former President Herbert Hoover was his neighbor (neat trick, Hoover died in 1964).  He also states that after the assassination, Bobby Kennedy's first public appearance was on the Tonight Show, Starring "Jack Parr."  Carson took over the Tonight Show in 1962 and Parr never hosted in 1964.   As I said, an interesting read, but the inaccuracies coupled with the number involved make Mr. Stone's conclusions highly suspect.
