Kennedy Assassination Conspiracy Theories

By | Nov 22, 2009

On November 22, 1963 President John F. Kennedy, the the thirty-fifth President of the United States was killed while riding with his wife Jacqueline and Texas Governor John Connally and his wife Nelly in a Presidential motorcade in Dallas, Texas. This there is no doubt. Although the official report shows that Lee Harvey Oswald fired three shots from a window on sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository, there are a number of theories relating to the crime.

The biggest theory is that Lee Harvey Oswald did not act alone or that he was not the actual gunman. Some witnesses reported that shots were fired not from behind but in front of the car. Some even reported that shots came from both directions.

In front of the car carrying the President when he was shot is the area termed the Grassy Knoll.

Another theory was that it may have been a government lead assassination. Vice-President Lyndon Johnson really wanted to hold the office of President and it was looking obvious that Kennedy would be nominated by his party for a second term. Some even thought that Johnson may be replaced on the ticket.

Then there is the theory that is was an organized crime lead killing. Kennedy’s brother Robert was the Attorney General and leading a crusade against crime. On top of that the President had decided not to continue a CIA plan to remove Fidel Castro from leadership in Cuba. Havana casinos before Castro was run by Mafia families.

One thing that is often forgot is two other people were wounded on that day. One was Governor Connally. A lesser known wound was that of James Tague, a spectator. He was standing 270 feet in front of the car and received a minor wound to his right cheek from a bullet fragment.
