In 1964, the British philosopher Bertrand Russell posed 16 questions about the
assassination of JFK.
Here they are:
Why were all the members of the Warren Commission closely connected with the U.S. Government?
If, as we are told, Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin, where is the issue of national security?
If the Government is so certain of its case, why has it conducted all its inquiries in the strictest secrecy?
Why did the Warren Commission not establish a panel to deal with the question of who killed President John F. Kennedy?
Why have so many liberals abandoned their own responsibility to a Commission whose circumstances they refuse to examine?
Why did the authorities follow many persons as potential assassins and fail to observe Oswald’s entry into the book depository building
while allegedly carrying a rifle over three feet long?
Why was the President’s route changed at the last minute to take him past Oswald’s place of work?
Why has the medical evidence concerning the President’s death been altered out of recognition?
What is the evidence to substantiate the allegation that the President was shot from behind?
Why has the FBI refused to publish what could be the most reliable piece of evidence in the whole case [photographs taken of JFK’s
vehicle just before and during the shooting]?
How is it that millions of people have been misled by complete forgeries [of photos of the murder weapon] in the press?
Why was the result of the paraffin test [on Oswald’s face and hands] altered before being announced by the authorities?
Why was the only description of [Patrolman] Tippitt’s killer deliberately omitted by the police from the affidavit of the sole
Why was Oswald’s description in connection with the murder of Patrolman Tippitt broadcast over Dallas police radio at 12:43 p.m. on
November 22, when Tippitt was not shot until 1:06 p.m.?
How was it possible for Earl Warren to forecast that [wife] Marina Oswald’s evidence would be exactly the reverse of what she had
How does a District Attorney of [Henry] Wade’s great experience account for all the extraordinary changes in evidence and testimony which
he has announced during the Oswald case?
I have never been satisfied by the official version of JFK's assassination, and I've never seen any answers to these questions.
