Before I begin, allow me to highlight that this is my first thread on A.T.S., so any and all replies are very much appreciated.
Also, whilst I am aware there is another J.F.K. thread currently present on this board, I am aiming to discuss an altogether different aspect of the
assassination here, otherwise I would have simply replied to that one. Now, that's the housekeeping out of the way, so allow me to begin.
Ladies and gentlemen, my question to you is - in itself - fairly simply, but the possible answers and implications of those answers are utterly
enormous, hence my interest and intrigue in the subject.
As I write this, we are almost fifty-one years on from the day when John Fitzgerald Kennedy was murdered, in broad daylight, on the street of a major
U.S. city. Countless points of view regarding exactly how the event took place have since been discussed and debated, but few certain facts have been
agreed on by everyone involved, and thus I would pose the following question to you.
"Which single aspect of the assassination - be it in the build-up to the event, the event itself, or the aftermath - grabs your attention above all
others? What piece of information makes you think, "This definitely is (or is not) a conspiracy"?"
A few examples of potential answers can be found below:
- Claims of multiple "Oswalds" in more than one place at a time (Mexico City etc)
- Eyewitness testimony placing Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby at the same nightclub table weeks prior to the event
- Lack of sufficient firing/aiming time in order to complete the assassination as described by the Warren Commission
- The "Magic Bullet"
- The movement of the President's head back and to the left
- Eyewitness reports of people's cameras/films being taken from them by unidentified men never to be returned
- The cleaning of the car outside the hospital, partially destroying an element of a crime scene
- Suggestions of interference with the President's body en route to Bethesda
- An insufficient autopsy carried out by individuals far too inexperienced for such a procedure
- The disappearance of the President's brain?
- The murder of Lee Harvey Oswald pre-trial?
- The litany of strange deaths (including remarkable "suicides") of witnesses after the event?
Of course, the list which I have provided is limited, but I am very interested to hear your thoughts on what elements, if any, lead you to believe
above all others that there was - or there was not - a conspiracy to kill the President of the United States of America?
In closing, I'm sure we can all agree - regardless of our respective opinions - that our thoughts and prayers are with the slain President and
everyone affected as the anniversary of a horrific chapter of world history comes and goes once again.
