It’s the year 1976, the United States Senate has just called for a new inquiry into the infamous assassination of President John F. Kennedy, who was shot in 1963 during his own motorcade in Dallas, TX while running for re-election. The CIA along with the FBI were coaxed into releasing new documents on Lee Harvey Oswald, and individuals who had not given evidence previously were persuaded to come forward. Pieces of evidence such as sound recordings and photographs were being subjected to scientific research analysis using more modern equipment. In 1979 the House Select Committee on Assassinations, or (HCSA), finally came to a verdict that Lee Harvey Oswald shot three times at the president; one of which, hitting his head and killing him. It was also concluded that a fourth shot was taken from ‘the grassy knoll’, which was something that was contradicting to the statement given by the Warren Commission 16 years earlier.
“Can anyone come up with a non sinister explanation for this?”. “One theory is that the assassins wanted Kennedy to know (in his final seconds) exactly why he was being killed,” writes blogger Croft Randle. “The umbrella symbolized Kennedy’s … refusal to
Oswald’s resentment toward authority was his most prominent motivation to murder the President. He demonstrated this resentment for various times in his life. For instance, Palmer McBride, a man Oswald met in the 1950s revealed that Oswald disclosed to him about shooting President Eisenhower for exploiting the American working class. In addition, nine month prior to his assassination of President Kennedy, he also attempted to assassinate Major General Edwin A. Walker upon the belief that the major general was a fascist leader. Furthermore, at 1:15pm on the day President Kennedy was assassinated, Oswald resisted the arrest from Dallas Police Officer Tippit, which caused him to kill Tippit.
I believe that it is hard to correctly pin point the absolute reason why he was assassinated considering the fact that the only suspect they had in the case of J.F.K was shot and killed. Lee Harvey Oswald was a pretty accurate suspect considering the fact that Oswald bought a gun just days before the assassination and had been to Russia. Lyndon B. Johnson benefitted from J.F.K’s assassination because he was sworn into office, shortly after the president died. J.F.K. wanted to avoid conflict between countries and didn’t want to go to war. After J.F.K was assassinated and Lyndon B. Johnson became president people that wanted to go to war, got to go to war.
