Description

ABOUT THE BOOK

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, or JFK, the 35th President of the United States of America, was assassinated at 12:30 pm at the Dealey Plaza, Dallas, Texas on Friday, November 22, 1963. At the time of his assassination JFK was considered to be among the most popular of all U.S. Presidents. Despite numerous reports and investigations, JFK’s assassination has yet to be fully explained. Most of these investigations were done improperly, ignored (or were prevented from using) relevant evidence, and provided imprecise and implausible data. There are a variety of conspiracy theories that question the motives behind the assassination, the actual assassin, and even the overall mastermind behind the assassination plot.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

Conspiracy theorists are further stymied by the fact that there is no direct evidence linking any organization (foreign or otherwise) to Kennedy’s assassination. No government or radical organization claimed responsibility and no witnesses have appeared. Many opponents of JFK conspiracies state that if there was evidence of a deeper plot, it would have been uncovered by now. The lack of truly definitive evidence is what makes most conspiracy theories improbable.

Some conspiracy experts, even one of the HSCA investigators, believe that the Cuban exiles worked with the CIA to help assassinate Kennedy. They hoped to pin the assassination on Castro or his operatives and this would then force the United States to invade Cuba. The HSCA did interview a Cuban refugee who stated that Oswald, in the company of other Cuban exiles, was part of an assassination plot.
