JFK Assassination: A look back 50 years later

JFK Assassination Is Still ‘The Mother Of All Conspiracies’ [Video]

The JFK assassination’s 50th anniversary is upon us, next month. We take a look back at one of the most tragic events in the history of the United States, that many believe, literally changed the course of history. But the killing of the President is also known as “the mother of all conspiracies.” With good reason.

With the opening of the movie Parkland, ahead of the commemorations that are sure to take place in November, interest in the topic has been reignited.

The 35th President of the United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, was shot to death on the streets of Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963 by Lee Harvey Oswald. That is the official result of the investigation published on the Warren Report.

The more than murky circumstances surrounding the assassination of the beloved President, have led to many conspiracy theories through the years.

Why was he allowed to ride an open top car with many high rise buildings in the path of the motorcade?

How do you explain the bullet wounds found in the President’s body, which suggest there was more than one shooter?

Why was Lee Harvey Oswald not protected properly while changing prison facilities on the day he was shot by Jack Ruby?

These are just some of the questions surrounding JFK’s assassination.

Even though all the government investigations that were conducted at the time, including one by Kennedy’s own brother, then Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, concluded that there was a lone gunman, Oswald, the conspiracy theorists haven’t stopped from drawing their own conclusions.
