    made Kennedy, McNamara and Lodge murderers. They likely thought of themselves as patriots, cold warriors.

    One thing: the military attache in Saigon limited the killings to the two brothers. It could have been worse.

    It's possible that other U.S. clients worried about who could be next. Kennedy had brought Diem over to the U.S., including a ticker tape parade on Broadway in New York City.
