In 1964, the British philosopher Bertrand Russell posed 16 questions about the assassination of JFK. Here they are:

1. Why were all the members of the Warren Commission closely connected with the U.S. Government?
2. If, as we are told, Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin, where is the issue of national security?
3. If the Government is so certain of its case, why has it conducted all its inquiries in the strictest secrecy?
4. Why did the Warren Commission not establish a panel to deal with the question of who killed President John F. Kennedy?
5. Why have so many liberals abandoned their own responsibility to a Commission whose circumstances they refuse to examine?
6. 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?
7. Why was the President’s route changed at the last minute to take him past Oswald’s place of work?
8. Why has the medical evidence concerning the President’s death been altered out of recognition?
9. What is the evidence to substantiate the allegation that the President was shot from behind?
10. 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]?
11. How is it that millions of people have been misled by complete forgeries [of photos of the murder weapon] in the press?
12. Why was the result of the paraffin test [on Oswald’s face and hands] altered before being announced by the authorities?
13. Why was the only description of [Patrolman] Tippitt’s killer deliberately omitted by the police from the affidavit of the sole eyewitness?
14. 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.?
15. How was it possible for Earl Warren to forecast that [wife] Marina Oswald’s evidence would be exactly the reverse of what she had previously testified?
16. 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.

I looked into this years ago and came to the conclusion that it was the driver that killed Kennedy. Video footage is obscured that shows his hand raising over his shoulder to shoot Kennedy behind. Clearly he didn't act alone and a shot would have been fired first elsewhere.
The windscreen was damaged but later magically was perfect. There were so many things that screamed CIA to me. Bush snr was photographed there that day but was apparently never there......

I have to agree - until someone can prove to me that the Zapruder footage I've seen is a hoax and been purposely edited to show William Greer with a gun in his hand firing the final head shot, then IMO there can be no doubt that this is exactly what happened. To me the answer to every question in the OP is that it because was it was an inside job.

Excellent points.

It makes you wonder why when you watch the JFK stuff on cable, they focus almost solely on the shooting. Nothing in front of or behind of it.

It's almost like the same story is getting re-hammered into subsequent generations. "See? This is what happened. Move along now." We get drilled on the same talking points. As time goes by, we start to forget that event did not happen in a vacuum and believe it did.

Having lived through it and been interested all my life, I can tell you with certainty that the story and evidence is changing ever so slightly, here and there. It took a lifetime for me to notice this.

I'll give you but one example of this. The footage of Oswald getting shot has slowly morphed over the decades. The shot is tightened up to omit the car backing in from the left and sounding its horn. This serves as just enough distraction to the people escorting Oswald to make sure Ruby has time to close the distance. The original news camera footage is a much wider shot that shows this action to the left of the screen just before Oswald is shot.

The footage today omits the car backing up and the horn sounding. Look here: the appears to be a film from that era but has been altered to omit the horn and car backing in. The horn should sound just before the shot? Hear it? I know... its gone!


Heres another... No car and no horn!


Now watch in the beginning of this...


So, I ask you. Decide for yourselves why so many videos seamlessly omit that part of the events. And I mean directly omit. You know how that looks right? What does the Black Bag of Dirty Tricks manual tell us about public assassination being best carried off with some kind of simultaneous distraction? Who is producing these videos and why is this part removed?

Theres your sign...

I never noticed that before. Very interesting to say the least. Thanks for bringing that up.

I still think the morphing video supports a sequence of events we are supposed to know versus the actual history. As you point out, it's much quicker, simpler, less distraction, etc. never mind how less accurate it is. I would agree someone is still trying to mold this history.

I've seen these clips before (as I think have most who've spent a lot of time researching this) and to me, this is one of the best pieces of evidence for a conspiracy from up high. Strange clip. You can really read the tension and confusion in that guy's body language and gestures. Maybe this is partly my lack of exposure, but I'm not used to seeing well-trained guys like this in the middle of a detail not only quit, but seem to ask "WTF?" in such an obvious way.


It's also a little too "coincidental" and convenient for the assassination attempt.




@intrptr : That is interesting, and I don't remember seeing that last view very often, if ever. On the other hand, it may be the case that if he was being transported, this vehicle with the horn may be the transport vehicle they were waiting for, perhaps? That would still leave some questions, I think, but would at least explain the vehicle, it's presence, and maybe a plausible reason for pulling up and honking. Just a thought...

After Mark Lane's book Rush to Judgment came out, I studied the case for about 20 years, reading all the theories and seeing the results of a vast cover-up.

Oswald (not his real name) was framed, then silenced. The real shooters got away that fateful weekend, but were probably the targets of other hired hit men and were silenced within several months. No, I do not think the mafia did it or was even involved. It was a black ops project that could have only been covered up by the various intelligence agencies of the government.

What I finally settled on as the main reason JFK was assassinated is that he was opposed to the Federal Reserve (a consortium of private bankers) owning the country and getting unbelievably wealthy by loaning money to the USA. JFK was strongly in favor of the U.S. printing its own money and not borrowing it from The Fed's printing presses. JFK also wanted USA money (printed and controlled by the USA, not The Fed) backed by silver. Today, the money loaned to us by The Fed isn't backed by anything. It is simply printed and doesn't represent any precious metals or tangible assets.

Where we are today is that The Fed owns our country completely and there is absolutely no chance of turning back, although Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich tried to get some momentum going for auditing The Fed. The audit will never happen because the Federal Reserve operates in secrecy like a secret society. JFK was bitterly opposed to secret societies, too. He also favored abolishing the CIA and only using military intelligence.

After being elected by the slimmest of margins (some say by criminal tampering of the vote tallies in Chicago), Kennedy became hugely popular among the people, the press, and a majority of Congress. He was going to win re-election, no doubt about it, and surely had big plans for his second term.

In my opinion, the nation has been in constant turmoil since JFK was taken out by a black ops hit team. The young man they arrested and called 'Oswald' was set up to take the fall. They may have planned to kill him within the first hour after the assassination, but something went wrong, so they had to kill him in the jail basement two days later.

When everyone sees all the media hoopla about the assassination this coming November, please keep in mind that 'Oswald' was not allowed legal representation, did not have a fair trial and was never convicted, in a court of law, of shooting anyone. They interrogated him for many, many hours from the time of his capture on Friday to Sunday morning when he was killed. The authorities told the public and the rigged Warren Commission that no notes and no tape recordings were made and no one could say what questions were put to the arrested man and what answers he gave. I think that if there were any notes on paper, they would have been given over to the FBI and destroyed.

In 50 years' time, the perpetrators have seen to it that almost all key witnesses are dead and almost all evidence has been destroyed.

Outstanding bit of WTF there. Only the closest security personnel could show such confusion at breaching protocol so obviously at the last minute. They all knew how dangerous things were at this time and especially dangerous in Texas of all places. To be fair I have heard it said that Kennedy himself authorized it. Maybe he knew what was coming, maybe he wanted to show them he was not afraid.

I see your good evidence and raise you this.


No less than six windows open at the top of building directly overlooking the limo approach and egress route at the apex of the turn along the route. The slowest portion of the road for the limo to navigate. Secret Service detail would never have allowed these windows to be open like this.

Heres the video I grabbed it from which also goes into more detail.

Of the three videos in my post the top relates about the armored car being "setup for transport" in the underground parking ramp. They show it too. An armored car was chosen to prevent anyone "trying to attack Oswald". I have heard this before and read about it. Which begs the question... why was that other car even moving around down there at that precise moment? And blowing its horn? You can see Oswalds escort are distracted by it...

Id further like to know who was driving it and why the hell nobody has asked these questions before. I can tell you that it is surely suspicious why film footage from that scene has been altered to exclude that car and that horn.

Armored car "for transport" in here at :13.
