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.
On September 19, 1934, Bruno Hauptmann was arrested and tried for murder on January 2, 1935. In the book “The Case Never Dies”, Gardner states that “there was insufficient evidence to convict him [Bruno]” (Gardner 1) of first degree murder. There were many witnessed that claimed Bruno gave them “ransomed bills” (Schwartz 3) at many businesses. The jury did not believe him when he took the stand and denied any involvement in the kidnapping. Bruno Richard Hauptmann was “put to death in the electric chair” (Crime Museum 2) on April 3, 1936.
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.
The Associated Press has conducted a new poll that shows 50% of Americans believe there were numerous shooters involved. Correspondingly, multiple conspiracy theories have unfolded with regards to the historical disaster, and many have changed the way people think and show that anything can happen to anyone like a flying volcano. The three out of various conspiracy theories are that JFK was most likely assassinated by either the Babushka Lady, the Umbrella man, or even his own wife Jacqueline
In the “murder” theory, it essentially claims that Rudolf Hess was liquidated by the British government during his temporary imprisonment in London and a British operative was just posing for him in the Nuremburg trials to cover up the machination. Contrary to the murder theory, the suicide postulate is very straightforward-Hess committed suicide in 1987 from his mental conditions and his numerous suicide attempts in the past. Irrevocably, aside from Hess’s death theories, his departure remains as an enigma in world history, reflecting the very nature of his past life and actions. Rudolf Hess’s mystery is just another addition to the stockpile of undiscovered schemes and classified events of the remorseless Nazi
Osama Bin Laden (OBL), an arch-terrorist and founder of the Al-Qaeda, was assassinated on May, 2011 in a covert US operation (Kitfield, 2013). By the time of his death, Osama had been linked to several terrorist activities including the September, 11 attacks that killed nearly 3000 people (Michaels, 2012). It was hoped that his death would dismantle or cripple the Al-Qaeda, a terrorist network formed and led by OBL. Three years down the line it is still not clear whether OBL’s death crippled, dismantled or strengthened the terror network. This essay intends to discuss the discourse and assessments that have evolved three years after his death to explain its impact on Al-Qaeda.

The Counterintelligence Program, also referred to as the COINTELPRO, was a Federal Bureau Investigation (FBI) secret program during the 1960s. The purpose of this program was to eliminate “radical” political opposition in the United States. One of the main targeted groups for this program was the Black Movement groups and leaders. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., an activist and prominent leader of the African American Civil Rights Movement, was assassinated by a sniper in 1968. The death of King is in connection to COINTELPRO, as there is evidence of a death threat letter.
Authorities have been trying to uncover evidence to Hoffa’s location. The mystery behind Jimmy Hoffa’s disappearance can be summed up into two theories: Hoffa was murdered by the Mafia so they could take control of the union, and that he left the mob business and lived out the rest of his life under an assumed name Lots of people know the mystery behind Hoffa, but don’t know how his life was before the mob. Jimmy Hoffa spent his childhood in Clinton, Indiana, the same place were Hoffa first earned his respect by using his fists (Warnes 381). A little ways down the road, ¨The International Brotherhood of Teamsters offered Hoffa his next job as a full time union organizer and the Kroger union was absorbed into local 299 of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters¨ (Warnes 381). The reason that the Teamsters offered this job to Hoffa is because not to much before this, he won a union contract that involved illegal movement of goods.
A little after noon on November 22, 1963 President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. A lot of opinions have been shared and compared. Within this paper I will explain my opinions on the assassination of J.F.K. It was very hard to develop an opinion about the assassination because there is very little factual evidence to support one individual being accused of the assassination. With some research I have come up with a few opinions of why I believe J.F.K was assassinated.
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.
