Since President John F. Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963 58 years ago, many people have proposed alternative theories or conspiracy About what happened.
Official reports stated that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone and fired three shots, two of which hit Kennedy and one shot him on the route of the Dallas convoy.
Two days after the assassination, nightclub owner Jack Ruby shot and killed Oswald while in police custody. Ruby was later sentenced to death, but died of cancer on January 3, 1967.
Most documents related to Kennedy’s assassination have been Released Open to the public, but because Biden extended the deadline from Trump’s deadline of October 26, 2021 to December 15, 2022 on the grounds of delays related to the pandemic, few people have not made it public.
Warren Committee It was concluded in 1964 that Oswald was acting alone and there was no broader conspiracy.
However, in 1979 U.S. House of Representatives Assassination Special Committee (HSCA) concluded that there may be a wider conspiracy. Two gunmen may have fired four shots, and the initial investigations by the FBI and the Warren Commission were flawed.
Despite this, the HSCA committee cannot indicate the extent of the conspiracy or the parties involved. Some of the groups named by the committee were the Soviet government, the Cuban government, anti-Castro groups, organized crime groups in the United States, the Secret Service, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Central Intelligence Agency. The conspirators speculate that all of these groups were involved in the assassination, and the committee cannot exclude the participation of individuals associated with a particular group.
The CIA’s conspiracy assumed that the US intelligence agencies opposed Kennedy’s position on Cuba and communism, so they killed him and made Oswald a scapegoat. Another conspiracy pointed out that the Mafia cooperated with the CIA and anti-Castro groups to assassinate Kennedy. That, or the anti-Fidel Castro Cubans themselves assassinated Kennedy.
Other conspiracy theories suggest that Lyndon Johnson assassinated Kennedy because he might plan to replace him as vice president. Due to Oswald’s relations with Russia, the Cold War and the Cuban Missile Crisis at the same time, the KGB was also considered a potential perpetrator.
