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.
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.
The St. Valentine’s Massacre does not explicitly occur in The Great Gatsby, but an event similar to the massacre destroys Gatsby. Returning from New York, Daisy murders Myrtle Wilson by running over her with a car. When Gatsby is asked who committed the crime, he knows Daisy was driving “but of course [he will] say [he] was” (143). Gatsby decides even though he was not the one behind the wheel, he will take the fall for Daisy. Thus, he was not the perpetrator of the incident and accepting the fault is to further his hope that he will achieve capturing Daisy.
Why this despicable act? He was the first Catholic President in American history, gunned down in Dallas, Texas on the 22 November 1963. When his brother Robert ran for president in 1968 he too was killed by an assassin’s bullet in a hotel in California. Were the Kennedys doomed? Earlier, civil rights leader Martin Luther King was killed in Memphis, Tennessee by an assassin’s bullet.
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.
Jfk murder had different viewpoints how he died and some people think Oswald did it, but there 's also more jack ruby and today I will tell you about who did it and how much people were part of this plan well here it is people say that oswald is innocent but I believe he was the killer with jack ruby because you know how jack ruby shot Oswald well they probably stage it and here 's the evidence behind it the night before oswald’s transfer, the Dallas police received a phone call.

The Demise of Rudolf Hess Randolph Bourne once said that “society is one vast conspiracy for carving one into the kind of statue likes, and then placing it in the most convenient niche it has.” One large conspiracy theory surrounds none other than Rudolf Hess, a notorious leader of the Nazi administration renowned for his inexplicable solo flight to England during World War II to negotiate peace with the British. Interestingly, that is all solid evidence can trace about Hess’s life-his story remains a mystery after his arrival in Scotland. There are two main conspiracy theories concerning his death after his advent: confidential assassination and straightforward suicide. Rudolf Hess’s life was full of mystery, but throughout time, scholars
The arrest of Richard Colvin Reid on December, 22nd, 2001 by U.S. federal Authorities defines the ideological context in which a terrorist can be defined as a covert military agent for Al Qaeda. Cowell’s (2001) article defines evidence of the arrest of Reid as a” man accused of trying to ignite explosives-packed sneakers on American Airlines flight 63 from Paris to Miami” (para.2). This unusual method in the weaponization of Reid’s shoes provides important insight into the covert style of warfare being used by a terrorist. In contrast to outward methods of warfare in the use of a gun, or other standard weapon of war, Reid chose to use a “shoe-bomb” in order to destroy a civilian passenger plane. In this manner, Reid had used a covert weapons through the guidance of a terrorist network, such as Al Qaeda, to plan a suicide bombing to destroy the lives of American citizens and an American commercial airliner.
Because there is no definite proof that Leonard Peltier ever murdered the two FBI agents on Pine Ridge Reservation in 1975, he should not be imprisoned for the crime. He did not own the pick-up truck that the agents claimed to be following on the day of the murder, nor can it be proven that he owned the gun that killed them. The two agents, Williams and Coler, were tracking a man that had stolen a pair of boots and were in unmarked cars when they drove onto Jumping Bull Ranch. Witnesses claim that they heard shots fired, and later saw a red pick-up truck fleeing the scene. The initial shots sparked a shootout between nearby residents and the agents.
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.

"Honest Abe" is not all that Americans think. Sources state that Abraham Lincoln was assassinated because of the money he printed debt-free ("Whiteout Press"). But the real reason John Wilkes Booth assassinated Abraham Lincoln was because Lincoln suspended writ of habeas corpus, arrested people that spoke out against him and oversaw concentration two camps. Abraham Lincoln 's assassination is directly correlated to him being a war criminal ("Southern Sentinel"). Firstly, Abraham Lincoln suspended writ of habeas corpus (any state that orders your arrest must justify your imprisonment before a judge) ("ListVerse").
