Hello, Healthy Skeptics!
Fifty years ago on this very same day, the last fully independent and autonomous President of the United States was callously shot down in Dallas, Texas. In my opinion, every man who's held this office since has been little more then a convenient and transparent shill for corporate interests and the insane demands of the military-industrial complex.
To mark the occasion I've assembled ten things that still baffle me about the Kennedy assassination. As someone who's actually stood in Dealy Plaza in Dallas and visited the sixth floor of the Texas Book Depository, I still have plenty of questions about that fateful day. In fact, this entry could just as easily have been titled "Forty Weird Things About The Assassination Of JFK".
Okay, ready? Here goes...
(10) On the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary, a lot of people are asking themselves "Where were you when you heard the news?" Naturally, this simple question tends to evoke a veritable flood of painful and vivid memories. That is, unless you happen to be George Herbert Walker Bush.
(9) Kennedy's bodyguards were deliberately pulled from his motorcade:
(8) JFK: conspiracy nut:
(7) Jack Ruby and Lee Harvey Oswald actually knew one another:
(6) This creepy, like-it-or-lump-it memo, released just three-days after Kennedy was killed:
(4) A slew of expert marksmen, including former Navy SEAL Jesse Ventura, have tried and failed to re-create Oswald's miraculous firing sequence on several occasions:
(3) Bill Newman, who was standing within ten to fifteen feet of the President when he was shot, was never interviewed by the Warren Commission:
(2) This former FBI Agent's powerful testimony:
(1) Jackie Kennedy was actually suspicious about the Vice President's motivations and Jack was terrified by the prospect of an LBJ Presidency:
Sorry, folks. I'm not one to indulge in overt wing-nuttery, but there's more weird per capita in this lingering story then any other historic event I've ever studied. Apparently I'm not alone since 61% of Americans still believe that Lee Harvey Oswald didn't act alone.
Or at all.
EPIC DOC A tad alarmist but there's actually some really intriguing elements here:
