Jfk: Death Of A Legend Essay

946 words - 4 pages

On the day of November 22, 1963 the day started out just like any other campaigning day for president John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Shaking hands and kissing babies was just the daily norm for the president of this great nation, but it all turned south in a quick hurry… John F. Kennedy was considered by many to one of the greatest world leaders this country has ever produced, but unfortunately his life was cut short. JFK was assassinated November 22, 1963, by who some said to be Lee Harvey Oswald, a very connected man, to organizations such as the Mafia, Russian KGB, the Cubans and Castro and even the CIA. But the real question lies between the lines in the fine print. Did Oswald commit murder and assassinate the president of the United States of America? That answer we may never truly know. Many believe that Oswald was the sole murderer of JFK, while others believe completely different theories. I happen to believe in a not so common theory in which the man behind it the assassination was none other than the jealous Vice President Lyndon Baines Johnson. LBJ was a dangerous man, he had many connections to mafia members, ex and current CIA members some of which had great feelings of hatred towards our president, even Johnson himself had many reason to dislike Mr. Kennedy but was LBJ really behind the murder our great president John F. Kennedy, that is what I intend to learn much more about. To better understand my theory I will give you just enough background information on some of the other common conspiracy theories, starting with the Warren Commission Report.

Based upon the findings of the Warren Commission appointed by none other than Lyndon B. Johnson. The Warren Commission here by concludes “The shots which killed President Kennedy and wounded Governor Connally were fired from the sixth floor window at the southeast corner of the Texas School Book Depository” (The Warren Report, 1964). The Warren Commission was led by Chief Justice Earl Warren, that's where the name came from. The Warren Commission was appointed by President Johnson on November 29, 1963 to investigate the assassination of JFK. Not only did Oswald act alone so did Jack Ruby, the man who murdered Oswald shortly after he was in police custody. The Warren Commission concluded that Oswald's motive could be found in his family history, tying into a lack of education and a lack of close personal relationships in his life. Not only was Oswald a lonely man, he was an unsuccessful man, all of which according to the Warren Commission Report led him to plotting the assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy. One thing that I find odd is that the man who was also shot in the assassination did not at all believe the commission's report. Governor...
