Everyone with a sense of history or a TV set knows this day is the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
It impacted the lives of people in ways which to this day aren’t totally discernible. The obvious impact was the follow-up decisions made by an entirely different President. Lyndon B. Johnson was his own man and one of those most obvious consequences was the escalation of the Viet Nam war. Lyndon Johnson was also noted for shepherding civil rights legislation and the war on poverty program.
It’s a day that all of us old enough to recall, know where and what we were doing the moment we received the news of this tragic event. I also believe it changed the psyche of the country to a point where we all became a little less trustful.
What we’re left with after 50 years of investigations, books, movies and TV shows are many questions of essentially an unsolved murder mystery. Bill O’Reilly coauthored a book recently on ‘Killing Kennedy’. His book reinforces the official story of Lee Oswald was the lone gunman without any additional support or conspiracy.
Rather than add to all of the conspiracy stories, I’m including this video which unlike so many other investigations provides a credible understanding which seems to indicate Lee Oswald wasn’t the lone gunman. Watch, listen and pay particular close attention to what he explains from the video & audio in the last-minute and a half. This not only includes the video, it also includes the audio recording of a microphone on a police motorcycle stuck in open mic. The sound recording suggests there were four shots and the timing of shots two and four align with the film. The short time-frame between shots three and four (on the audio) are consistent with witnesses who said they heard a pause followed by two quick shots.
Josiah Thompson The Untrue Fact About The JFK Assassination
During the moments he was shot there appears to be evidence of a frontal shot. Was the windshield damaged with a bullet hole? I truly believe we either don’t have the correct official story because the truth would further damage credibility of our government or there’s a refusal to face the facts as they were. We may never learn the truth in a way that becomes official record.
