2.Oswald Spoke with members of the KGB just TWO months before the assassination of President Kennedy. The call was intercepted between Oswald and Counsel Valeriy Vladimirovich Kostikova who was an identified KGB officer.

3. President Lyndon B. Johnson believed that the assassination was retaliation for the killing of the Vietnamese President.
