Why Was J.F.K Assassinated?

Why Was J.F.K Assassinated?

It was on a Friday, November 22, 1963 in Dallas Texas at exactly 12:30 P.M. The 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy was assassinated in front of a crowd while on the Presidential Motorcade. This incident has sparked conspiracy theories that are not proven up to this day.

There was no immediate reason or any faction that comes to mind on who is responsible for the assassination. After two hours of the incident Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested for the murder of a Dallas policeman. He was later then suspected as the one that assassinated the president and was killed before he was transferred to the county jail.

The Warren Commission was organized to help solve the case along with the HSCA (House select Committee on Assassinations). They viewed that there is a possibility of a conspiracy but they lack evidence. Other disturbing facts prevented further investigations on the case. Witnesses were being threatened and killed and the evidence has been tampered with. A cover up was initially suspected and that led to more questions than answers.

One of the theories involved that not only one gunman was present on the scene of the crime. There were two or more of them, many people believed. More than one shot was fired and it was suspected that 3 or more shots had been made in an attempt to kill the president.

The reason behind the killing was just a theory but it was said that many political people want America to actively participate in the Vietnam War. Other theories point out, to the failure to help the Cuban Exiles that attempted to overthrow communism in their country.

Till this very day, the actual reason for the killing is still not known to the general public. Whether it is because of a conspiracy by different factions in the government or other independent groups, no one will be able to tell.
