(Official narrative)Rdf-icon.png

The original Official narrative of the JFK Assassination states that it was the work of a 24 year old, the "lone nut" Lee Harvey Oswald. This was ohwever contradicted in 1979 by the US House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA)'s conclusion that Kennedy was probably assassinated as the result of a conspiracy, with "...a high probability that two gunmen fired at the President"[1] - though the HSCA did not identify a co-conspirator.

Problems

back and to the left

A lot of evidence suggests that neither Lee Harvey Oswald nor Jack Ruby were "lone nuts", but that they had close connections with US government agencies and were in fact involved in a complex plot orchestrated by a team of (mostly) US government insiders. Standard operating procedure was violated multiple times in ways inexplicable according to the "lone nut" hypothesis, such Emory Roberts' ordering off the two secret service men who should have stood at the corners of Kennedy's limousine.[2][3][4]

Peter Dale Scott notes that just minutes after the shooting, a description of the suspect was issued that was a poor match for Oswald, but was an exact match for his FBI file (which had had a flurry of activity just before the assassination).[5]

Premature deaths

Many witnesses, reporters, and others connected to the Kennedy assassination have turned up dead. Over 100 murders, suicides, and mysterious deaths have been reported, of which the site currently lists 41.[6]

Warren Commission

Mountains of evidence suggests that the Warren Commission was set up to fail and that elements within the US government have ever since been involved in a determined, ongoing cover up of what really happened.

Zapruder film

Full article: Zapruder film

The Zapruder film shows Kennedy's head moving back and to the left, instead of moving "violently forward" as described by Dan Rather on CBS. If his head moved "violently forward" as described by the corporate media then this would support the claim that Oswald fired from the Texas School Book Depository because it was behind the 1961 Lincoln Continental Kennedy was riding in. However his head can be clearly seen moving back and to the left (see above) supporting the eyewitness testimony of shots from the grassy knoll which was to the right of the car.

Widespread disbelief

Nowadays most Americans believe that the US government lied about the event,[7] and that Oswald did not act alone.[8]

Truth“After a political event of the size of JFK’s assassination or 9/11, everybody runs for cover and prepares their exculpatory narrative. ‘The truth’ doesn’t make it onto the political agenda. This is normal bureaucratic behaviour.”Robin Ramsay
