JFK assassination conspiracy

[ad#ad-1]The nation went into suffering after word spread like wildfire that JFK was assassinated. Abraham Zapruder, an amateur cameraman, caught on his camera the recording that would become the first presidential assassination captured on film. The events that happened minutes and days after shocked the nation and the whole world.

The inconsistencies, oversights, exclusion of evidence, errors, changing stories, and changes made to witness testimony in the official Warren Commission investigation made the JFK assassination conspiracy one of the most widely known conspiracies in the world and has fascinated conspiracy theorists for more than 45 years.



Let’s examine some of the facts surrounding the event.

The murder weapon

The police told the press that the weapon found in the School Book Depository was a 7.65 Mauser. The problem with this evidence is that Lee Harvey Oswald never owned a 7.65 Mauser. Later on, investigators changed their story and identified the weapon as a 6.5 Italian Mannlicher Carcano, the gun that Oswald actually owned. The Warren Commission ultimately concluded that a 6.5 Manlicher-Carcano was used and not the 7.65 Mauser.

Documents kept secret

Many documents in the Warren Commission investigation, the Church Committee investigation, and the House Special Committee on Assassinations investigation were kept secret from the public. Contained within these secret documents was John F. Kennedy’s autopsy records. A conspiracy theorist noted that, “…there exists widespread suspicion about the government’s disposition of the Kennedy assassination records stemming from the beliefs that Federal officials (1) have not made available all Government assassination records (even to the Warren Commission, Church Committee, House Assassination Committee) and (2) have heavily redacted the records released under FOIA in order to cover up sinister conspiracies.”

Some of these documents have not been scheduled for release until 2029.

Witnesses intimidation

Jean Hill, Richard Carr, Roy Truly, Sandy Speaker, and A. J. Millican were some of the witnesses of the assassination, or connected to the events of the assassination. They were threatened and intimidated by the government. Acquilla Clemmons claimed she was told to keep quiet about what she saw by a man with a gun who came to her home.

Witnesses’ Deaths

A suspiciously large number of deaths connected with the investigation emerged. Jim Marrs pointed out that these deaths certainly would have been convenient for anyone “not wishing the truth of the JFK assassination conspiracy to become public.”

The inconsistencies in the JFK assassination conspiracy run rampant. Some witnesses thought the shots came from two different directions, while others thought the shots came from the Depository, or at least in that direction. Numerous people reported hearing gunfire coming from the Dal-Tex Building, which is located across the street from the Texas School Book Depository. Many conspiracy theories argue that at least one shooter was located in the Dal-Tex Building.

Former U.S. Marine sniper Craig Roberts and Gunnery Sergeant Carlos Hathcock, the senior instructor for the U.S. Marine Corps Sniper Instructor School, said: “We reconstructed the whole thing: the angle, the range, the moving target, the time limit, the obstacles, everything. I don’t know how many times we tried it, but we couldn’t duplicate what the Warren Commission said Oswald did. Now if I can’t do it, how in the world could a guy who was a ‘non-qual’ on the rifle range and later only qualified ‘marksman’ do it?”



There are a lot of mysteries surrounding JFK’s assassination, and a long time may pass until we find out the truth. Until then, the JFK assassination conspiracy will remain in the top 10 conspiracies of all time.

    Not who pulled the trigger, the question is why was Kennedy killed. The mod wanted him gone, rediculus. The upcoming war in Vietnam is the best reason I can think of. Did Kennedy plan to pull out of this war while others had already made plans to make alot of money on the war? This is where the investagation should have gone. There was alot of comment back in 63 about the mob, Castro, the Russians. Could this have been to throw everyone off the scent, and into other directons. This case is so cold now I do not believe it will ever be solved.

    I have heard that Castro and Nikita Khrushchev, (Russian President at the time), had something to do with the planning of the assassination. Castro obviously being rather pissed that the U.S lead by JFK invaded with the intention to stop the whole Cuban missle crisis, which were supplied by the Soviets… Leading to the subject of the Cold War.

    JFK died from a sniper rifle bullet to the head. Its proven. You cannot use a normal gun, such as a desert eagle or your basic rifle. It had to be certain that it was advanced. Died of an untimely death.
