In 1952 the US got involved after Nicaragua solicited U.S. assistance to overthrow the Guatemalan leader, Jacobo Arbenz Guzman. President Truman authorized the shipment of weapons and money to anti-Arbenz groups. But, within five weeks the operation to topple Arbenz quickly fizzled when representatives loyal to the president uncovered the plot and took steps to solidify their power. Later Eisenhower sought to defend American interests abroad with an increase in funds for nuclear weapons and covert operations. After that, convinced that Arbenz threatened U.S. national security because of his alleged Communist sympathies, Eisenhower approved the first-ever clandestine military action in Latin America.

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.

Before he was involved with politics, he attended Harvard University before he joined the United States Naval in 1941. He made history by becoming the youngest man and first Roman Catholic to be inaugurated into the White House . According to “History” they state that “Kennedy actively fought communism in the world, ordering the controversial Bay of Pigs Invasion of Cuba and sending thousands of U.S. military “advisors” to Vietnam”. (history.com) Sadly, before his term ended he was assassinated by a fatal shot in November 22, 1963 at Dallas, Texas during a ride in a motorcade, but even fifty years later after the tragic event many Americans have different conspiracy theories about who had killed him, and if it had been planned by the government.
He hoped for enthusiastic national support to an electoral alliance between Anti-Masons and National Republicans that would overpower the Jacksonian Democrats. When his expectations did not work, he wrote in frustration about his presidential aspirations: "What the use ... it neither breaks my leg nor picks my pocket." In the election, Wirt carried Vermont with seven electoral votes, becoming the first candidate of an organized third party to carry a state, and he remains the only Presidential candidate so successful who came from Maryland.

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.
Khrushchev considered this justifiable because of the American missiles positioned in Turkey. The support for Cuba provided the Soviets with several political and diplomatic advantages, and became an immediate threat in the eyes of the American government.

Eventually, the missiles were deemed not nuclear, but still capable of reaching the United States. Two days later, President Kennedy was briefed on the dire situation and immediately assembled the National Security Council to determine how to address the issue.
