In the infamous Zapruder Film, Kennedy’s body violently moves backwards and slumps over to the left. This brings the popular assumption that there was at least one other shooter located somewhere in front of the motorcade. However, Robert A. Artwohl explains why this theory is absurd in his article, JFK’s Assassination: Conspiracy, Forensic Science, and Common Sense. “...there are large problems of logic and common sense with the government-led or government-involved conspiracy theories….It is difficult to believe a government-led team of President’s assassins came up with the following complex plan” (Artwohl 1543). Artwohl then goes on a tangent of how it is impossible for the government to take several years to set up Lee Harvey Oswald, get him hired at the Texas School Book Depository, frame him with planted evidence, have other assassins perfectly positioned where they can shoot the president from different directions, then quickly gather the bullets and evidence after the death.
The terrorist attacks on 9/11 have caused many debates over the years since they occurred back in 2001. Two American planes were hijacked and ran into the twin tower buildings, another was hijacked and headed for the pentagon, but thankfully never made it. Thousands of Americans lost their lives on the days of the attacks and to this day the sorrow hangs with us. Security was a huge debate of the time because America is supposed to be the safest nation there is, so how did this happen? America had lots of changes to make the attacks on September 11, 2001.

Thousands of Americans whom was present at Dallas, Texas just witness the murder of the United States president. Many Americans believed that the United States government was behind the JFK assassination.
These recorders are near-indestructible instruments. According to the 9 /11 commission Report, no recording devices were ever found at the World Trade Center crash site. However on September 14th a paramedic and firefighter did discover two damaged black boxes among the wreckage. A source from the National Transportation Safety Board has also spoken out, claiming that it helped analyze the very boxes that the FBI claimed are missing. Conspiracy theorists believe that the reason why US intelligence want to conceal this vital information is because this is further proof that 9/11 was an inside
The morning of Tuesday September 11, 2011 is one of the biggest tradgies of all time. On this specific day four airlines were hijacked by an Islamic group that goes by the name al-Qaeda.

Intro People expect their government to have their best interest in mind and always protect its citizens, but what about when it doesn’t? There are dozens are possibly hundreds of shady events that our government covers up. People believe that the government is hiding aliens, technology capable of time travel, and even Walt Disney’s head frozen in cryostat. Yet for now those are simply just conspiracies. They’re events that have yet to be proven true, but our government has been exposed of committing various crimes.
Before September 11, 2001, the United States was believed to be a super power. It was considered untouchable. This belief made the idea of a terrorist attack on the U.S. impossible to fathom. At 8:46 am EST, United Airlines flight 175 crashed into the north tower of the Twin Towers in New York City. A total of four commercial planes were hijacked that day by terrorists with kamikaze like intentions.
In order to hide the incriminating evidence, Nixon compulsively lied throughout the whole predicament to the press and to the people of America-even the government. Eventually, Nixon handed over the tapes as commanded by the US Supreme Court. Suspiciously, eight and a half minute of a recording was missing, potentially making it impossible to uncover all of the evidence. This was the tragedy of the Watergate Scandal. One of the tapes, called “Smoking Gun” confirms Nixon had yielded justice.
To clarify, this alternate theory stemmed from multiple bystanders claiming they saw something moving upwards towards the aircraft before the outburst (TWA flight 800 crash - Atlantic Ocean off New York: 1996 4). It also became even more apparent when people said they saw a missile and information of the Navy ships being in the area and near the time of the crash had surfaced (Cole 30). The suspicion of this theory became even more strange due to the minute people had started making acquisitions of missile contact with TWA Flight 800 the FBI immediately became involved which then lead some to believe the NTSB was giving false reasoning for the crash to cover the Navy’s missile mistake (McDowell-Smith 2). Adding on to the suspicion, when the FBI discussed what they had seen with 736 trusting eye witnesses, many gave evidence supporting the idea of a missile, some of the witnesses even stated “ We saw what appeared to be a flare going straight up. As a matter of fact, we thought it was from a boat.
The Taliban was asked to hand over Bin Laden because the terrorist organization would then be unable to operate without its leader, but they refused to cooperate. Their claim was that the United States has not given any evidence proving that Bin Laden had been behind 9/11. An interview of Bin Laden saying, “‘If inciting people to [suicide bomb] is terrorism […], then let history be witness that we are terrorist’” (Bin Laden 's Sole Post-September 11 TV Interview Aired par. 6) that aired shortly after the tragic day and the Islamic religious ruling Bin Laden had written which urged Muslims to attack the U.S. were provided. It was as if Bin Laden had proven himself guilty.
The results of the report said Oswald had assassinated the president on his own with no kind of conspiracy involved. However, the evidence that the Warren Report used to justify their answer, lacked many facts and was mainly speculation. According to the House of Representatives Select Committee on Assassinations, a group who reinvestigated President Kennedy’s death, concluded that there was a great chance there was a second gunman. On history.com, where it talks about the results of the report, it says the report also stated that JFK most likely died from an unknown conspiracy. This report, as you can tell, was majorly different from that of the criticized Warren Report.

Their motives were stated in a “letter”, Osama bin Laden was the leader of the terrorist group and he wrote they attacked because of our increased support in the Middle East.

Conspiracies. The list can go on and on: Area 51 and the “Aliens,” are secret societies controlling the world, were the moon landings faked, the CIA and the AIDS virus, etc. One of the most known and least understood conspiracy is, ‘did Lee Harvey Oswald work alone in the assassination of JFK?’ Although the evidence implied that Lee Oswald in the assassination, some citizens remained unconvinced that he had acted alone. There is substantial evidence showing the likelihood of a second gunman. For Oswald to have been the lone gunman, the three following components must all have been in effect; 1) There were at least 2.3 seconds between each shot, 2) No more than three bullets caused all of the wounds.
