Today I go to my third power point lecture on the assassination of JFK.  This one covers much of the information that has been published since 1963 by independent investigators.  The title of this power point is "Case for Conspiracy".

Before, we begin to put this into blog form I want to say a few words about the most recent book by Gerald Blaine with Lisa McCubbin & Clint Hill, The Kennedy Detail.

This is a wonderful book & I recommend it highly to everyone.  It is a part of the assassination story that is long overdue.

I have the utmost respect & appreciation for the work all the agents of the Kennedy Detail did to protect a President who was very difficult to protect, but also for their views that JFK was the victim of just one assassin.

In many way, as JFK is my hero, I would be better off to agree with their view & after all, Clint Hill, was the closest human being next to Mrs. Kennedy to see the effects of the shot that hit JFK in the head, but it just seems to me that there is so much contrary evidence to suggest that it was not just one assassin.

I also realize that there are many books out there that have come to some very bizarre conclusions about the JFK assassination, and I know there have been some people who relish giving the agents a bad time.

This is not only unfortunate, it is totally disrespectful to their service to this nation.  When you listen to them talk about JFK & their jobs or read what they have written, you know they loved their jobs & they loved President Kennedy.

I ask you to keep this in mind as you read my blog's entries on the conspiracy.  I can't say that anyone will ever really know the full story behind JFK's death, but I think when you look at all the evidence you can't help but believe there had to be more to the story than Lee Harvey Oswald.

Thank you.

Despite the conclusion of the Warren Commission in 1964 that JFK was the victim of a lone assassin & that there is "no credible evidence of conspiracy, foreign or domestic", the great majority of Americans today do not agree.

While the statistics change from source to source, year to year, on average 7 to 8 out of 10 Americans today believe JFK was the victim of a conspiracy.

I have read & studied almost everything that has been published on the assassination of JFK.  While there are still many unanswered questions about the event, we have many more "facts" in 2011 than we did in 1964.

We begin with The Warren Report.  It was the work of the Warren Commission, headed by Chief Justice Earl Warren, & published in both a summary report & 26 volumes of testimony & evidence.

The Warren Report, submitted to LBJ in September 1964, concluded that President Kennedy was killed by Lee Harvey Oswald firing 3 shots from the 6th floor corner window of the Texas School Book Depository.

The commission had called 552 witnesses, although not all & on a selective basis, & had filed 3100 exhibits.

The report concluded that one shot missed the car entirely, one hit JFK in the upper back (neck) & passed through his throat & continued on to hit Governor Connally, passing through his chest & exiting into his wrist & thigh, & then the 3rd shot striking JFK in the head.

Again, according to the report, these 3 shots were fired from a manual bolt action rifle found on the 6th floor of the TSBD in 5.6 seconds.  That rifle, of course, was easily traceable to Oswald.

No other person or group was involved.  Just one man.  DONE!

The Warren Commission expected Americans to just accept this conclusion & go on with their lives.  Except for a very few skeptics, that's exactly what happened.  Even the press accepted the conclusion & asked few questions.

LBJ ordered all records on the assassination of JFK to be sealed for a period of 75 years.  The reason given for the order was to "protect national security".

So how is even possible to question the report if we don't have the records.

The answer is The Freedom of Information Act.  Passed in 1966, this law enables citizens to request documents from the U.S. government.
