JFK Assassination, A Conspiracy?

By | Nov 22, 2013

Fifty years later there are still those who feel that the assassination of John F. Kennedy was not the crime of a lone gunman, Lee Harvey Oswald, but was a conspiracy. A conspiracy with Oswald as only one of the participants, even as one of several gunmen.

When I first started looking in the assassination nearly 40 years ago, I had many questions. The stories were out there. And there were doubts in my mind. Enough doubts that when Gerald Ford ran for President in 1976, the fact that he was part of the Warren Commission, a report I still think was incomplete, was a factor on my decision on who would get my vote. I was 18 and it was my first chance to vote and to this day, I am not sure which lever I pulled, since when I entered the polling booth my head was clogged and foggy with a bad head cold.

Was there people who wanted him dead? He was working to bring an end to organized crime, the removal of Fidel Castro from being the leader in Cuba, and he had just a year before stood his ground against the communist Soviet Union.

There’s the thought that how could Oswald be lucky enough to fire three accurate shots from a bolt action rifle in approximately 8 seconds and there had to be a second gunman. And then two days later, on November 24th, Oswald was murdered by Jack Ruby while Oswald was being transferred from City Jail to County Jail. Why would Ruby do that?

Luck and chance happens all of the time. Ruby may have just snapped that morning, perhaps due to an expression on Oswald’s face.

Now nearly 40 years after I first started researching and reading about the assassination, the theories of conspiracy my views have changed. At first I was pretty certain that there was a conspiracy and that even if Oswald had acted alone, others were involved. Today I believe that Oswald did act alone and he was the lone gunman and that several strange and unusual factors came together to make the impossible possible.
