With no confession or trial to prove Oswald’s guilt, the suspicion of a conspiracy to assassinate the President gripped the American people. However, the United States Government’s position was that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. They said he was a lone gunman and a mad man, who killed the President with no help whatsoever. In response, there were many speculations about the assassination and the government’s attempt to cover up this particular event. Could a controversial theory prove that there was more than one …show more content…
If it is wrong, then the FBI and the Justice Department investigations that supported the Warren Commision are also wrong. Since there were many unanswered questions, the House of Representatives established the Select Committee on Assassinations in 1976. Based on the scientific evidence presented to them, they concluded that there had to be another shooter, and that Oswald did not act alone. As a result, many believe that the FBI and the Warren Commission are both parts of a giant cover up perpetrated by the U.S. government. Was this cover up an effort to avoid mass hysteria and lay John F. Kennedy to rest? Or was Oswald a scapegoat used by rogue parts of the government to hide their conspiracy against the President? Was there more than one shooter that day? Or did Oswald act alone? Although we will never know the truth, the official story is that Kennedy was simply the victim of a lone, mad

I think Lee Harvey Oswald was involved in a larger conspiracy. I Think this because there were multiple shooters and I don't think it was just him. Oswald might have been pushed to do it by the government or like the Russian government because J.F.K knew something and didn't want j.fk to tell. What I mean by pushed is he was forced like getting a bribe or getting threatened.
I think that Oswald was somehow partnered with Jack Ruby for the assassination because facts also state that people had seen a couple of men disassembling a gun earlier that day. That could've been Oswald and Jack Ruby. Other evidence states that Oswald was in the School Book Depository caught with a two foot wide bag in his hand. The gun was three feet long. That explains why two men, that could've possibly been Oswald and Ruby, were disassembling a gun earlier so that they could fit the gun in the bag for Oswald or Ruby

Brian Hernandez Prof. Cicirelli CM-115-02 11/30/15 JFK Assassination Many conspiracies have taken place within government, but none of them have been more serious then JFK assassination. When JFK had fired its director and other agents, the CIA was scared that Kennedy would take down the CIA permently, he believed to be an extremely terrible agency under the government. The shooter, Lee Harvey Oswald, who was in the marines at one point was planted into the biggest CIA camp somewhere in the Asian pacific and had been wanting to attend the CIA.

Kennedy, President Lyndon B. Johnson put together the Warren Commission. Around a year after JFK’s death, the Warren Commission concluded that Kennedy had been killed by the lone gunman, Lee Harvey Oswald, who fired three shots at Kennedy. However, as more people looked into the official findings of the Warren Commission, the legitimacy of it began to be questioned by conspirators. Statements weren’t adding up and conspirators believed that the true information was being withheld or had even been destroyed by the Central Intelligence Agency. Conspirators argue that the CIA’s classification of a large number of records relating to the killings suggest that the organization may have been involved in a cover-up.
The killer Lee Harvey Oswald who was an american sniper. Is it conspiracy or actual true that it was a lone gunman? Many articles, book, and people say it was a conspiracy by the FBI which I agree for many reason. The reason why I agree it was a conspiracy is because in one article I read it said “Using acoustic evidence it concluded that Oswald "probably did not act on his own" and that a second gunman was operating from a grassy knoll.
Lee Harvey Oswald’s assassination by Jack Ruby was unjustified because he did not have the ability to defend himself, however, the killing of Oswald exposed the idea that the assassination was a much more organized plan to end JFK’s presidency.

Johnson theory is credible. In many video tapes of President John F. Kennedy being shot, viewers see that the bullets hit him from different angles.

Another way this theory is credible is that Johnson’s mistress, Madeleine Duncan Brown, has said that on the eve of Kennedy’s assassination, he said “After tomorrow those... Kennedys will never embarrass me again.
In order to help the media to “convince the public that Oswald is the real assassin,” the Warren Commission was obliged to describe in detail how Oswald, without assistance, was able to kill one man and injure two others. If any of these statements were contradicted by the balance of the evidence, Oswald could not have committed the crime alone. The Warren Commission attempted to deal with these constraints by devising what became known as the single–bullet theory. All three of their points have been proven to be almost impossible, the only real explanation is simple: there had to be a second
