Over the last 50 years, people have come up with countless conspiracies about the JFK assassinations.
Some go even so far as to state ridiculous things such as the driver or Jackie shot JFK. One of the most absurd theories I came across yesterday where
someone claimed that JFK had a "device" planted into is head which was set-off by Jackie to make it "seem" like an assassination....which, obviously,
as is the case for many conspiracy theorists, allegedly was only a "staged event".
One of the earliest and most often asked "mysteries" is that Oswald allegedly couldn't have shot JFK, for whatever claimed reasons.
The closer I examine the JFK assassination, the less a mystery it really is. I am afraid to say that really NOTHING about it seems like a mystery or
conspiracy to me since the evidence and the events which happened (IN MY OPINION) are pretty consistent.
* Claim that it was impossible that Oswald shot JFK, or claims about the path of the bullet etc...NOTHING mysterious about it:
There is no reason to believe that Oswald was an "impossibly perfect" shot who could not have killed Kennedy
We know that Oswald shot THREE times.
The first bullet entirely missed.
The second bullet hit JFK in the back and exited at the throat, also injured Connally.
The third bullet hit JFK's head.
The fact that two bullets basically missed already discounts the theory that Oswald was an impossibly good shot and he couldn't have done it.
The autopsy and all the findings are entirely consistent with that the shooter/Oswald was located in the school book depository. One can trace the
path of the bullet(s) back, it's a straight line from where Oswald was hiding, the back of Kennedy, throat --> governor.
The fatal shot is also consistent with the autopsy and Oswald's location, with a bullet hitting the back and exiting the president's head. (Which is
*clearly* evidenced in the Zapruder film).
Any conspiracy theory involving Jackie, the driver or whoever would have to take the autopsy into account (which obviously must be faked so as to
conform to the "staged event")...not only would it need to take the autopsy into account, it would ALSO have to take the Zapruder film into account.
The film ALSO is consistent with that Oswald was hiding in the book depository and it's also consistent with the path of the bullet, there is no
Some argue that it was impossible that Oswald fired three shots in the time (4.8s - 5.6s between shots)...which is a ridiculous argument. We KNOW that
the first two shots actually missed and only the third one fatally hit.
Oswald had the "perfect" hide-out space with the president's car below parading very slow, presenting JFK with the back to him as a target with
plenty, plenty of time to fire the shots. I am not a weapon experts in the slightest but I can well picture that this would not pose a problem to
anyone who is halfway familiar with firearms like he was.
What I am saying...there is a 50 year old "conspiracy" but upon closer examination I don't see the mystery at all.
