I'm not going to sit here and argue that there was another shooter on the grassy knoll or that the limo driver turned around and shot him point blank
in the head, as to such arguments are insignificant and irrelevant. I believe you should look at the picture as a whole to find the truth of the
matter. So I will say this; I know this topic is long, just bear with me, it makes perfect since.
President John F. Kennedy gave this speech at the President and the Press meeting in April, 1961.
"The very word "secrecy" is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies,
to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far
outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its
arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there
is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of
official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration,
whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to
cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know.
It requires a change in outlook, a change in tactics, a change in missions--by the government, by the people, by every businessman or labor leader,
and by every newspaper. For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for
expanding its sphere of influence--on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on
guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly
knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. Its preparations are
concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is
printed, no secret is revealed.
I am asking your help in the tremendous task of informing and alerting the American people. For I have complete confidence in the response and
dedication of our citizens whenever they are fully informed."
Needless to say JFK was speaking out against the secret societies. On November 22, 1963, President Kennedy was assassinated during a trip to Dallas,
Texas by Lee Harvey Oswald by a fatal sniper shot.
Sgt. Davis, of the Dallas Police Department, had prepared the most stringent security precautions in the city's history. But Winston Lawson of the
Secret Service, who was in charge of the planning, told the Dallas Police not to assign its usual squad of experienced homicide detectives to follow
immediately behind the President's car. This police protection was routine for both visiting presidents and for motorcades of other visiting
dignitaries. Police Chief Jesse Curry later testified that had his men been in place, the murder might have been prevented, because they carried
submachine guns and rifles to take out any attackers.
Oswald was found and arrested by Dallas police in a theater just hours after the assassination. He was charged with the murder of a police officer and
the assassination of the president. While he was being apprehended, he told his arresting officers he was a patsy, or someone who was meant to take
the blame for an action.
