“It must be said that the FBI generally exhausted its resources in confirming its case against Oswald as the lone assassin,” the HSCA concluded, “a case that Director J. Edgar Hoover, at least, seemed determined to make within 24 hours of the assassination.”
In essence, the experienced investigators concluded that Hoover had divined the solution to the crime before starting the inquiry, and then his agents confirmed the boss’s epiphany. The intimidated Warren Commission went right along.
We should note the counter-culture icon Noam Chomsky sold his soul over this fraud, as well (and his credibility, his ethics, his morality). Rather than backing the obvious lies of the Warren cover-up, Chomsky chose to peddle apathy: “Take for example all this frenzy about the JFK assassination. I mean I don’t know who assassinated him and I don’t care, but what difference does it make?”
Chomsky didn’t “care” enough that he wrote an entire book seeking to downgrade Kennedy’s importance.
