Some people can argue that the conspiracy of Lee Harvey Oswald did not act as a lone gunman. The main controversy for many Americans for years is what was the motives that driven Oswald to take down a beloved world leader. According to the New York Times, a friend of Oswald’s wife, Priscilla McMillian, made a statement that Oswald did not hate Kennedy, but rather dislike how the government system was running as a capitalism country and it was tragic that Kennedy supported how the United States was running that led Oswald to assassinate JFK. There is a possibility that Oswald was not a lone gunman because JFK was shot twice in two different areas, the first bullet was shot from the right side of his back and the second bullet was fired, aiming on the right side of his head causing a fatal wound that his head was almost blown. Having two bullets shot at two different places in Kennedy’s body provide a key evidence that Oswald had helped from a second
He believes that the government has covered up a substantial amount of evidence, and even replaced some. Unlike the official report, Horne thinks that Oswald was not a lone gunman and that he was part of a larger team. Horne thinks that there could have possibly been three shooters. He believes that there were two on the fence line and one behind JFK. Horne believes that JFK was shot 5 times, three in the back and two in the front. Horne states there motives could have been developed by JFK pissing off the right military officials, has well as lyndon B. Johnson. By statting this Horne implies that LBJ, and high military officials were involved in the assassination. Horne explains all of the evidence he as developed in his 5 volume work, and he shows the cover ups the government has done, as well has the evidence they have
The Secret Service was in charge of the president’s security, and clearly failed in its job. While the Secret Service as an organization had neither a believable motive nor the power to carry out the assassination by itself, it is unbelievable that one or more members of the Secret Service urged the assassination. About 1% of conspiracy believers blamed the Secret Service for killing Kennedy. According to this theory, anti-Kennedy agents in the Service had no interest in protecting him from shots. One such theory claims that Kennedy’s driver, a Secret Service agent, fired the fatal shot.
Five days after the Confederacy’s surrender, John Wilkes Booth had successfully killed one of the most influential presidents in American history to do what he believed would redeem power to the southern states. Booth’s main goal was to tear down the Union’s government by taking down their leader and his successors, but the original plan did not involve the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. Historian Christopher Hammer explained in his article "Booth's Reason for Assassination", the former actor had created a group of co conspirators and designed "a ploy on March 17 to capture Lincoln as he traveled in his carriage [and had] collapsed when the president changed his itinerary—and several of Booth’s conspirators ultimately left the group.” (Teaching History). Since the failed capture of the president, Booth hatred towards Lincoln grew after hearing the president’s goal to officially abolish slavery in his Second Presidential
Many people have different conspiracies on who killed and how they killed the president of their time, John F. Kennedy. Some think that it was one guy named Oswald, some believe that it was the mobs, people also think it was the government. No one has exact proof of what happened that day or who killed him, but here is my conspiracy based off of facts that I have gathered and if I think that it was only Oswald that was in on it.
John F. Kennedy, the 35th United States President, was assassinated on November 22, 1963 during a parade while he and his wife were visiting Dallas, Texas. The Warren Commission has concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald, a lone shooter, was the man who committed the crime. Over the years after Kennedy’s death, people have come up with other ideas of why and how this president died. One of many conspiracies was made by his wife, Jacqueline Kennedy, saying that Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson had something to do with it. She believed that he wanted to become the president so badly that he would kill to get it. In this conspiracy, it is said that Johnson hired two men to assassinate John F. Kennedy. At least one of the gunmen was supposedly waiting in the
Kennedy was only in office for 1000 days. He was assassinated on November 11, 1960 in South Dallas. The only man who said they saw the person kill the former president came from Midlothian, Texas. But Kennedy’s mysterious murder will always be unknown because a couple of days before the trial the man was killed in a car crash. The spot where he was assassinated was covered with an unofficial red “X”, but it is no longer there due to the road being repaved.
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. Apparently he was the guy for the job. Many critics say that Lee Harvey Oswald might have been brain washed by the CIA. For most people, the assassination of JFK marks this down as the biggest incident that has changed this country.
Many people know about the assassination of John F. Kennedy. What day it was on, where he was, and who he was with. But did you know that the main suspect for the murder, Lee Harvey Oswald, was also assassinated two days after the killing of John F. Kennedy. 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.
At 12:30 p.m., on November 22nd, 1963, President John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s motorcade was passing through Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas, when he was shot and killed. His assassination shocked the nation, and the police were quick to react. On the same day, Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested for the murder of John F. Kennedy. Two days later, Oswald was shot and killed by Jack Ruby, a nightclub owner, outside the doors of the Dallas Police Headquarters. 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
The mafia was the most powerful criminal organization in the world. The reason for this belief was that Jack Ruby, the man who shot Oswald, had ties with the mafia. One of the reasons that the mafia could have had reason to murder the president was that his brother, Robert Kennedy, who was also the attorney general, had been acting quite aggressively against some of the mafia bosses. Robert also led a strong campaign against the mafia. Many believe that the mafia saw that getting rid of Kennedy would also get rid of his brother, since there would have to be a new administration after his death, and Robert would have to be replaced. However; a big whole in this particular theory is that, according to the mafia it is against their code of conduct to kill any person with any kind of legal
Many questions occurred concerning the line of sight shot. Oswald was supposedly on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository, shooting at a 17 degree angle. The Limousine was traveling at approximately 11.5 miles per hour. According to the official story put out by the Warren Commission, the fatal shot was one of three fired by lone assassin Oswald. The first shot apparently missed, the second struck Kennedy in the back at the base of his neck, and the third in the head from a distance of 81 m. The Warren Commission findings were immediately rejected by various conspiracy theorists who have frequently claimed that the required level of marksmanship would have been virtually unattainable and the required firing rate (5.6 to 8.3
November 22 1963, Dallas Texas, it was a like a scene from a movie, outside the skies were such a deep blue that you got lost in wondering how far out it went until a soft wispy cloud would slowly blow past and remind you that somewhere in all the blue nothingness there seemed to be something more to it.It was the middle of fall so it was warm in the everywhere the sun hit and when the wind blew it was a breath of fresh air.God himself couldn’t have created a more perfect day. Everybody in the Dallas area had come out to see President Kennedy give a speech. The streets were filled, so much so that there was no room to breathe. Like they were greeted by their own at a family reunion the citizens of Dallas welcomed them with cheering, handshakes, even a bouquet of long stemmed red roses for his wife. They were
Do you know who killed JFK the president.He was killed by a man named Lee Harvey Oswald.He was a mean and unorganized man and he shaped one day.He decided to kill the president because he wanted back into the soviet union.Yes he was there before and he came back at some point.He was crazy because before he tried to kill a general and he missed and ran away.He also wanted to be famous in the soviet union and or Cuba.

The reason for this is unknown because there is no evidence of Oswald explaining why he shot Kennedy. During the investigation, the Warren Commision came up with the Single-Bullet Theory, which explains how the path of travel changed on the second bullet fired at Kennedy.
