Logan Giacomo-Damiano Ronco Report Abuse
Single handily took control of government computers to cause en mass security problems. Gave way for assassinations to take place within a 1 minutes time to commence and never be detected by federal security.

Apparently he was young? He was born in 95 and apparently he only goes by Logan Ronco, Giacomo Damiano isn't his middle name or anything it's his alias name used in most cases, confuses me but either way to add more detail to what is here I found out that he took down security as in cameras and any thing that could lead to any evidence, there was multiple locations that this took place in within that time consent so it's quite astonishing. The deaths of those that were taken because of this can be linked back to this but there's no evidence to say there was any correlation between the two. Seems like there's a lot more to the story will probably never know but still cool.

Heard about this awhile ago. Used it as a distraction for the murders to be taken place without any way of proving who did it. Never was sentenced or anything because it was impossible to prove anything happened besides there being up to 35 "accidents" all basically linking to this. Also got out of cracking into government servers. It's horrible but was thought out.

Lee Harvey Oswald Report Abuse
Its strange to out this man so high on the list when so many people believe he wasn't an assassin at all. Despite the mystery that surrounds the murder of JFK, or perhaps because of it, Oswald's name is synonymous with assassination and he reamins the most famous accused assassin in American history.

He was a marine, like many other famous shooters, and marines are among the best trained marksmen in the world, so he certainly had the skill to do it. Look at it like this, in the American revolution, snipers would hide in trees and use muzzle loading firearms with primitive rifling to take out officers at 100-200 yards, quite an impressive shot even with modern rifling, and they had minimal formal training. But, he was never tried and no one can definetively mark him as the shooter, though what little evidence the minimal investigation did turn up does suggest he pulled the trigger.

I mean of course the assassination was completly un nesscessary ( Amen) but Lee Oswald made a huge impact on how we look at John Kennedy so i'd say 3's good enough.

This crackpot, nutcase, wannabe marxist agitator doesn't deserve to be on any list. He shouldn't be recognized at all, that's the reason he did what he did. His name will go down in history alongside such other notables as Brutus, John Wilkes Booth, Benedict Arnold, Quisling, etc. as men notorious for betraying causes or killing pivotal figures in history. That's not a list I'd care to top.

John Wilkes Booth Report Abuse
A very famous and well known name in America, booth is credited with the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, one of America's most respected Presidents. Booth was a known Confederate spy and in his time was considered a handsome, talented actor who achieved a certain degree of fame in that profession before falling on hard times.

I wouldn't say John being.. crazy like someone else said, but I've also NEVER heard him being paid to do it. I've never gotten into researching the other assassins in the scheme, but he gathered friends from childhood, who also had symphonies for the south, and most likely payed them to assassinate the others. I'm sort of split between whether he went mad or whether it's because he hated Lincoln so bad he would've went so far. He had such a young and good life, and it's hard to believe he would go that far. He was depressed during that time and was insane for the south, so it made some sense of the reason he did it. Well, anyway, I don't really think he was insane, crazy, and from what I've gathered, he wasn't paid, he paid others. Unless... that's what that guest means.

First of all, Lincoln died in the morning. Not 3 days later. Second, the South was never really a seperate country as they did not achieve true independence from the US and where not offically recognized by world leaders.
Added 1 year ago by guest, -1 points Vote + to improve this comment's ranking Vote - to decrease this comment's ranking
I never really think of him as an assassin, and if you were to consider him one I would rate him sloppy at best. Even with lucrative planning, he still barely managed to kill Lincoln (he survived for like, 3 days afterwords) with a point blank shot to the back of the head. Also, with the lack of security back then, that would be like calling some one an assassin for squashing a spider they came upon. And, @the guy who says it wasn't between two countries, the South seceded from the Union and became the Confederacy, making it a new country, with its own economy and placement on the industrialization timeline which was the main reason for their loss in the war (no railroads, no mass production of clothing and other neccesary materials. They grew the cotton, but the North processed it into something they could use).

Marcus Julius Brutus Report Abuse
The assassin of Julius Caesar, Brutus may be the most famous assassin in history. Caesar's admonition of "Et tu, Brute?" remains the most famous dying words spoken to an assassin ever and Shakespeare helped immortalize the murder in his play Julius Caesar.

Gavrilo Princip Report Abuse
His name is not remembered as much as some of the others on this list, but there's no denying the historical importance of his crime. Known to history as "The Shot Heard Round The World" his assassination of the Archduke Ferdinand sparked World War I and thus was a major catalyst for the global upheaval that was to follow. Perhaps no other assassination led to so much bloodshed.

GySgt Hathcock did not formulate his targets or make the strategic choices about them, although he probably had some of the best intelligence input about many of them. He was an operative with the trust to make appropriate decisions in an operations environment undergoing constant evolutions. He was not a lone operator acting individually amidst larger geo-political entities.

Not a single person here could've done what he did. Most here are sloppy and not successful. May have assissinated someone but often caught. Carlos worked in a constant combat environment where he was surrounded by armed soldiers and often took days/nights around the clock with no sleep to crawl within range (up to 2,500 yds) a kill with one shot and then crawl back out of the area without getting caught. Research......Hill 55, NVA General suicide mission, etc. 93 Confirmed kills, many more not able to be confirmed due to not being able to recover bodies. This was during a very short time and only when he was given a target/mission, imagine how high the body count would be if he had just gone to killing on his own. This man was not just an assissin, he was a master of assassination. Best of all he was a hero and unlike most of these losers he was honorable and law abiding, harming no innocents. Long live " Long Trang". Semper Fi

James Earl Ray Report Abuse
30 points - added 5 years ago by pxc0 - 1 comment
Comments:
American criminal James Earl Ray (1928–1998) pled guilty to assassinating civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. and was sentenced to 99 years in prison on March 10, 1969. Three days later he recanted his plea. He then spent almost 30 years vainly attempting to win the right to the trial he had forsworn. He eventually gained such unlikely allies as members of the King family and the Reverend Jesse Jackson in his protestations of innocence and quest for a trial. Ray's death on April 23, 1998, did little to quell the unanswered questions and conspiracy theories that abounded, but a 2000 probe led by then-U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno found no credible evidence to reopen the investigation. Nonetheless, there were some who remained unconvinced. www.notablebiographies.com

First off, he was a missionary and didn't do any killing himself. What he actually did was kidnap people, drug them heavily to the point where they believed that they were dying, and once they drifted out of conciousness they were moved to a garden with fountains spouting wine, with food served by virgins and they were given hashish (a high concentration of cannabinoids) pretty much to the point where they were tripping one major ballsack. Then, he would present himself as an emmisary of God, and tell them they were in heaven, and they would live in the garden like kings. Then, once they became accustomed to that lifestyle, they were abruptly cut off from the drugs, and thrown into a dark pit and told once they came too that they could only re-enter the garden if they did God's will, and they were made to believe that everything Hassani said was a message from God. They then began rigorous training, and were most commonly used as sleeper agents, inserted directly into the life of the target as some one like a servant, or a lover. Then, after many years of getting close they would strike. I would also like to re-iterate what has been previously said about the origin of the word assassin. It was derived from Hashashin, the common name for followers in his cult. Also, some one said Asasiyun ment people whom are faithful to Asas. I'm actually fairly certain it translates roughly into "Some one who is willing to die for their cause," because his followers were made to believe that the only way back to their paradise was to become a martyr, which could be argued as the origin of the idea of heaven. Interesting fact, the Hashashins were the base for the Assassin's Creed games, Hassani being Amoir Lin I believe it is.

He himself was not an assassin. After establishing the HQ at Alamut in Iran, he never left it and died there, but his name substitutes for the hundreds of nameless assassins that killed by his word. Also, Hashish has absolutely nothing to do with the name. Asasiyun is the actual word in Persian and some dumb tourists didn't hear it properly.
Added 1 year ago by guest, 1 point Vote + to improve this comment's ranking Vote - to decrease this comment's ranking
Pretty obvious? I bet if you ask one hundred random people walking around on the street, maybe five of them will know who he is. The word assassin isn't derived from his name. The word assassin comes from the Arabic word "Hashashin," which means "users of hashish." Hassani-I Sabbah (the proper way to spell his name) used to call his followers "Asasiyun," meaning people who are faithful to Asas.

William was prominent in the Dutch fight for independence from the Spanish crown in the Netherlands. He was directly involved (either financially or as a leader) in the battles that began the Eighty Years’ War. Gerard, a Catholic Frenchman and supporter of Phillip II believed William had betrayed both the Spanish king and the Catholic religion. Gerard shot William in the chest at close range at William’s home in Delft. Many historians believe William of Orange to be the first world head of state to be assassinated through use of a handgun.

Felix Yusupov Report Abuse

Comments:
It is believed that Grigori Yefimovich Rasputin was not actually a mortal man. Some say undead, others say Fae. I even heard one guy say that Rasputin was a nephilim. If what I know of Rasputin is true, he was certainly tall enough for it. That being said, to survive being poisoned, stabbed, shot, clubbed, before finally being drowned, it lends credit to what people say to him. Also note, as he was fleeing the building, he was shot AGAIN by an American assassin hiding in nearby bushes. The name of of the man escapes me, but pretty much everyone was out to get Rasputin.

Perhaps the most interesting, or bizarre at the very least, assassination in history. On December 16, 1916 a group of nobles lead by Prince Felix Yusupov and Grand Duke Dmitri Pavlovich assassinated Grigori Rasputin. According to legend, Rasputin was poisoned, shot, clubbed, and ultimately thrown into an icy river where he finally succumbed to death. The conspirators, having decided that Rasputin’s influence over Tsaritsa Alexandra (wife of Tsar Nicholas II) was too dangerous a threat to the empire, first poisoned Rasputin with “enough cyanide to kill seven men”. When unaffected by the poison, Yusupov shot Rasputin in the back with a revolver. Yusupov then left the body to consult with the others. When they returned to the body, Rasputin grabbed Yusupov by the throat and whispered, “You bad boy” into his ear before hurling him across the room and running out. As he ran out, he was shot three more times. The group followed him out and found him still struggling to carry on. They then clubbed him into submission, wrapped him in a sheet, and threw him into the Neva River. Three days later, the body was pulled from the river and autopsied. The cause of death was found to be hypothermia and his arms were found in an upright position as if he had tried to claw his way threw the ice. It should be noted that Rasputin had survived a previous attempt on his life. On June 14, 1914, Khionia Guseva stabbed Rasputin in the abdomen, and his entrails hung out in what seemed a mortal would. Rasputin recovered after intensive surgery.

In my opinion one of the top 5 greatest assigns of all time. Used numerous methods to kill and torture. He killed for almost all major new York and new jersey crime families. To learn more abouthim I suggest reading the book "the Ice Man" by Philip Carlo. Interesting read.

simply being a killer does not constitute the title of assassin. Assassination is the *selective* murder of an individual of a political, military or religious authority. He shouldn't be on this list... at all.

Robert Newton Ford Report Abuse
January 31, 1862 – June 8, 1892 He was born in Ray County, Missouri an American outlaw best known for killing his gang leader Jesse James in 1882. On April 3, 1882, after eating breakfast, the Fords and James went into the living room in preparation for the trip to Platte City. James had just learned of gang member Dick Liddil's confession for participating in Hite's murder while reading the daily newspaper, and grew increasingly suspicious of the Fords for never reporting this matter to him. According to Robert Ford, it became clear to him that James had realized they were there to betray him. However, instead of scolding the Fords, James walked across the living room to lay his revolvers on a sofa. He then turned around and noticed a dusty picture above the mantle, and stood on a chair in order to clean it. Robert Ford then drew his weapon, and shot the unarmed Jesse James in the back of the head. James' wife Zerelda Mimms ran into the room and screamed, "You've killed him." Robert Ford's immediate response was, "I swear to God I didn't." After the assassination, the Fords wired Crittenden to claim their reward. They turned themselves in to the law, but were dismayed to find that they were charged with first degree murder. In one day, the Ford brothers were indicted, pleaded guilty, and sentenced to death by hanging, but two hours later Crittenden granted them a full pardon. Despite the deal that was made with Crittenden, the Ford brothers received only a fraction of the money they were originally promised. Ford was shot to death by Edward O'Kelley in his tent saloon with a shotgun blast to the front upper body. He was buried in Creede, later reburied at Richmond Cemetery in Ray County, with "The man that shot Jesse James" inscribed on his grave marker.[2] Ford is often believed to have been a proficient marksman, due to his recreational and extensive use of small firearms throughout his life.

Nathuram Godse Report Abuse
This man assassinated Mahatma Gandhi on January 30, 1948. His reasons remains difficult to discern even today, but most experts believe it was due to political disagreement with Gandhi support of the partitioning of India.

Comments:
countries are not only created and ruled by good, same with Gandhi. His nonviolence was going to extremes at the cost of majority and integrity of country. Remember no household can run like a charity. Hard decisions have to be taken. He was instrumental in India giving Pakistan 55 crore rupees, a massive amount, despite all round condemnation. He could have done more harm if he would have stuck to his utopian ideals. Please read final words of Godse before judging him. It is hypocritical that one who died for "truth", in his name, last words of his killer were suppresed. Read and find out why before making him an assassin.

As a historian I have always been both fascinated and sickened by the human need to kill the best among us (Jesus, Gandhi, MLK, etc.). It's almost like we have it in us to destroy ourselves. A strange trait for creatures with supposed intelligence to have.

Saad Akbar Babrak Report Abuse
On October 16, 1951, during a public meeting, Saad shot Liaqat twice in a park in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. The assassin was fatally shot by police officers seconds later, so it is not clear what his motive was, but it has been speculated that it was related to Liaqat Ali Khan making inflammatory comments regarding Afghanistan at the time of his shooting. Liaqat was rushed to a hospital where he was given a blood transfusion, but he succumbed to his injuries. Biographical detalis of Said Akbar and the reasons that why he killed Liaquat Ali Khan are not widely known.[1][2] It is stated in the official file on Liaquat Ali Khan that Akbar was a "Afghan national and a professional assassin.
