New JFK Memorabilia Released Brings New Questions

Newly discovered documents purport to transcribe a conversation between Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby about the assassination of John F. Kennedy and potential assassination of his brother, Robert Kennedy. Newly discovered documents purport to transcribe a conversation between Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby about the assassination of John F. Kennedy and potential assassination of his brother, Robert Kennedy.

The Dallas County District Attorney's Office announced the discovery of several items related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas on November 22, 1963.

Among the items is a highly suspect two-page transcript dated October 4, 1963. The conversation is supposedly between JFK assassin Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby, who shot and killed Oswald two days after the president was killed.

The transcript which refers to Oswald by his first name  reads, in part:

Lee: You said the boys in Chicago want to get rid of the Attorney General.

Ruby: Yes, but it can't be done ... it would get the Feds into everything.

Lee: There is a way to get rid of him without killing him.

Ruby: How's that?

Lee: I can shoot his brother.

Ruby: But that wouldn't be patriotic.

Lee: What's the difference between shooting the Governor and in shooting the President?

Ruby: It would get the FBI into it.

Lee: I can still do it, all I need is my rifle and a tall building; but it will take some time, maybe six months to find the right place: but I'll have to have some money to live on while I do the planning.

Dallas' District Attorney Craig Watson, says the documents belong to the district attorney's office and they will make a decision on whether or not they will turn the documents over the 6th Floor Museum in Dallas or to another museum.

Media were allowed to go down and take pictures of the safe but at this time not permitted to go through the documents.
