If nothing else, you gotta admit that there are certainly a wide variety of conspiracy theories to choose from, and they all don't neatly mesh together. You may believe in a particular flavor of conspiracy theory, while there are others that you think are simply ridiculous.

How do you choose? It is a result of a particular book or video or interview that you've seen? You just saw that one theory, and it resonated with you in some way? What makes one better or more plausible than another one?

Or are you the kind of person who likes to try to fit in everybody from Oswald to the Cubans to the CIA to the Russians to Jackie to the limo driver to George Bush to the Babushka Lady to Walter Cronkite? Like a huge puzzle.

The one where Oswald did it.

Occam's razor and all that.

With so many theory's and such, the actual told 'truth' is now considered a conspiracy!

I really don't know. I believe there was a conspiracy for sure, but I don't think one can say conclusively what actually happened and who was really behind it. Personally, I think LBJ was involved somehow, and I lean towards the idea that Oswald was a patsy. I think it might be possible that Oswald was involved to some extent, but I don't think he was the triggerman. I think he was set up to take the fall, and after the shooting he realized his plight.

I think there's enough evidence to indicate there was more than one shooter, and at least one shot (if not 2 or more) was fired from in front of the motorcade (possibly the grassy knoll). If the CIA was involved, there are certainly people who were in the CIA at the time who had no love for Kennedy that had ties to LBJ. There were also less savory types with mob connections that also had ties with LBJ.

Theories I think are nonsense:

-The driver killed JFK
-Jackie killed JFK (I've actually seen someone suggest this)
-Oswald was the lone gunman
-Castro killed JFK
-The Russians did it
-Oswald acted alone but an SS agent in the car behind Kennedy accidently fired the fatal head shot
-The mob did it single handedly

To me it seems most likely that there were probably individuals from within both the mob and the CIA that might have acted together along with LBJ and some of his cronies to carry out the assassination. I don't think it was an "official" CIA plot, but rather rogue elements within the agency acted without direct approval. Mob connections could have been sanctioned from higher up however, as the mob had no love for the kennedy's.

I also think that RFK's assassination is also incredibly suspicious, and combined with his brothers death, adds fuel to the fire of conspiracy.

I believe Oswald was ATTEMPTING to kill the president but he did not actually get the job done. I strongly believe he was accidentally shot by one of his very own SS Agents in the car behind him. The damage done to JFK's head was what the bullets the SS was using would have done.

Of course though all the conspiracies that were outlined could still be at play here but as for who actually shot him that is what I believe.

The documentary Dark Legacy has a pretty interesting theory.

Basically it suggested that Oswald was a FBI undercover agent investigating CIA "anti-Castro" groups, headed by a George H.W. Bush. The documentary alleges that the hit was carried out by rogue CIA agents, and Hoover wrote a fairly damning memo referencing these ideas.

I believe Oswald was the assassin, but there was a conspiracy involving the complicity of those involved with the parade route planning and security forces to allow Oswald the opportunity; in other words, it was all orchestrated for Oswald.

I prescribe to the belief that Oswald was recruited to assassinate Kennedy. Unbeknownst to Oswald, there was another shooter which served as the "insurance" to make sure there was a kill shot. Jack Ruby was probably paid to keep Oswald from talking about those involved in the recruiting. It's just too convenient for someone to silence a person who assassinated the president of the United States.

I like the one described in the video below?


On another note, it was the Hair Guy from Ancient Aliens bent on preventing mankind from discovering the Alien bases on the Moon since JFK was all about going to Moon.

On more serious note, I'm in favor of Big Money Mil.Ind.Com orchestrating the hit.
JFK was more in favor for preventing war. War, however, is good for business.
How much money was made off of Vietnam anyway?

It's something to think about.

l b j had it done and the fatal shots were from the front. in my own opinion, the book, "best evidence" is the best on this subject.

from the dallas coroner who observed that the coffin that arrived at bethesda was not the one that he had placed kennedy'd body in. then the air force in the mid to late 90's admitting that they did in fact drop the original coffin in the middle of the atlantic.

the dr. who performed the autopsy said that there had been surgery applied to the brain when none had been done in dallas. just basic life saving procedures. the military honor guard being sent on a goose chase at bethesda on where to greet the coffin.

laws of physics, force is transferred to stationary, unattached object will make that object head in the direction the force was going. back and to the left indicates a shot high up on the right side of the forehead. small entry wound, large exit wound explains why the trunk of the car and the police motorcade behind the limo were covered in gore and brain.

and of course this photo of l.b.j. taking the oath on air force one. what the hell was this wink for?

One Main Suspect is Lyndon Johnson and Co. along with his Hit Man Malcolm Wallace . Theory goes Wallace was the Shooter in the Book Depository that day while Oswald was in the Buildings Lunch Room Drinking a Coke . Apparently What Happens in Dallas Texas Dosen't Always Stay in Dallas Texas . Not ALL the Conspirators were Killed after the Dirty Deed , some Lived Long Enough to Tell the Tale ( E. Howard Hunt among Others )..............

It's interesting to me because over the years, without much more (if any) "new" evidence being found, the biggest amount of blame has definitely shifted away from the Cubans and organized crime to become more directly associated with LBJ.

It didn't used to be that LBJ was much of a suspect, for whatever reasons. Most likely because he was the most obvious, I suppose, with theoretically the most to gain. But "obviousness" is one of the main reasons reactionary folk don't like the idea that Oswald acted alone, the same way Jack Ruby did. It's too simple and easy to be true.

I also note that there has been an increase in the amount of blame about the lack of good security everywhere, from the street to the Dallas Police Station. But I think that has a lot to do with people not realizing that in 1963, before this whole assassination thing happened, it was relatively easy for any Joe Blow to walk right up to somebody like the President and shake their hand and maybe get a photo. We've gotten used to a very high degree of security everywhere, including in our own lives. It's hard to imagine that the "authorities" used to be so casual about stuff like that.

I guess that makes me old.

Someone, like a co-worker told LHO to meet him on the 6th floor when the limo drives by, so they can heckle the Prez.

LHO arrives on cue, but nobody else shows. He narly notices the rifle and THREE casings that were pre-placed behind some boxes. Boom, you got your patsy.

I like one I read online years ago--It claimed George Bush Snr shot JFK because he was sleeping with Baraba. It even went on to claim Jr was actually the son of JFK.

I dont buy the theory, but I'm certain Snr could smell powder that day

To kill a king.

i lean towards a joint cia, mob hit. and oswald was a patsy." I'm Just a Patsy!"was one of the first things oswald said, he all but said there was a conspiracy. he admitted to being involved.

reason why, bay of pig / cuban missile crisis , and jfk rfk going after the mob.
i think that the cia, was pissed that he called off the invasion and they employed mob shooters.
the reason the mob went along, they wanted to get back into cuba. also jfk and rfk were going after the mob.
that's why both were killed,no matter what sir han says.

i think that the oswald was a patsy, that the cia set up because they had been using him and that it was known he went to russia. and everybody in the U.S. at that time hated and feared russia, who better than a former marine traitor to set up. they also used ruby who was tied to the mob.it was well known he know many mob members.

no matter what you believe, you have to be a blind fool to think that oswald did it by his self. to much is known about key players in the story to think other wise. plus if you know any thing about ballistics and shooting, and ever shot any thing. and watch the z film, well i'll just leave there.

any way we only have to wait three more years for all existing assassination-related documents to released.
they moved it back to 2017, instead of 2039. i guess they figure all the players will be dead sooner than they expected.
