    He sure did.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    He did it, and he acted alone.

His shooting of Tippitt has an eyewitness (unless, of course, this guy was part of the conspiracy!).

    I think there's a deep-seated need to believe that if the President of the United States is murdered, it must take incredible organization involving scores - if not hundreds - of conspirators to accomplish that deed. In fact, it didn't.
    The doctor at the hospital that treated Kennedy said the back of his skull was blown out. Think about that. Bullets make a small hole where they go in and big hole where they go out.

    I think over the last couple of years when two authors were give exclusive access to all the JFK material that anymore than 3 shots were disproved. All three fired by Oswald. A lot of Oswalt's connections with Cuba and other communist were held back from the people in fear they might be riled up into a war frenzy. This definitely helped build conspiracy.

    Oswald was a communist. He greatly admired Castro. He defected to the Soviet Union. He killed JFK.

    Those facts have caused such cognitive dissonance on the left that leftists have ginned up a whole raft of conspiracy theories trying to reconcile those facts with their world view.

    The fact of the matter was that Oswald had a furnace for a brain. His mother had messed him up badly by constantly failing with men and jobs and moving him around the country 20 times while he was growing up. Never having been allowed to establish roots anywhere, he felt permanently alienated from American society. Later on, like many such people, he professed to be looking for nothing but a place where he could put down roots but quickly got bored wherever he lived and kept moving around. He thought he'd find peace and a purpose for his life in the USSR. He got into Russia on false pretenses and then got the government to allow him to stay by injuring himself. They at first refused his request for asylum, but later allowed him to stay in Minsk, but then he got bored again. The KGB kept an eye on him but otherwise wouldn't touch him or give him anything to do other than drab factory work. After he returned to the US he was looking for something that would justify his existence. He was a while in Dallas, got bored, to New Orleans, bored again, back to Dallas, on to Mexico. He offered his services to the Cubans but was rebuffed because the Cubans thought he was a nut case. Back to Dallas. Wherever he went he stirred up trouble with his pro-communist activities, more fanatical about his communism than the other communists, seemingly seeking some sort of recognition for himself. At one point he attempted to kill an anti-communist Army General with the same rifle he used on JFK. In all of these things communist organizations kept him at arm's length. They saw him as a liability, and so he always acted alone. And then he settled on doing one big thing; he went after the anti-communist President.

    The assassination wasn't the product of a political agenda or of communism. It was the product of one troubled mind.

    I thought it was the Russians that almost started a nuclear war. I guess it all depends on which side you were on during the Cold War.

    this to me seems so obvious that you have to be willing to ignore provable facts to reach the conclusion that Oswald didn't fire all three shots.

    Facts never got in the way of a good conspiracy theory. Having lived through it, I think what shocked us most was that one man could do this. I think most of us thought it would take an army to bring down a president. Yet here was this weird little man with a second rate rifle that did exactly that.

    what about Jack ruby ? who killed him ?

    it is said kennedy was against the vietnam war and threatened to bring CIA's international crimes out into the open.

    l suspect he wasnt a bad boy because he was assasinated ,bad ones arent assasinated!

    maybe USA would be a real democratic world power if kennedy lived long
