Even today, a poll taken reflects that 6 out 10 Americans still think there was a conspiracy that resulted in Kennedy's murder by Lee Oswald. Even today, of the 1200 documents regarding the assassination, only a selected handful have been made available the public.

That, in itself, seems to be a conspiracy to withhold information about this until all Americans alive in 1963 are dead. Even Jacqueline's bloodstained pink outfit will not be displayed to the public for another 100 years, yet, the shirt of JFK, red with bloodstain, is. Just what IS the government still trying to hide of this event 50 years ago and why such paranoia?

The critical element of the shooting revolves around the single bullet, a magic bullet, that killed President Kennedy and wounded Governor Connelly. This 6.5mm copper-jacketed bullet hit JFK in the back, traveled through his body, and then struck Governor Connally’s chest and wrist, said the Warren commission report. But how?

The bullet would have had to swerve in midair and be redirected to cause the damage ascribed to it by the Warren report. A second shooter from a different angle had to be involved. The only evidence that supports it otherwise is that both men were sitting at different angles and different heights in the car. That IS logical but there is still the single bullet changing direction, Kennedy and Connally were hit at the same instant, according to the photographic evidence of footage shot by Abraham Zapruder. That is the other problem. They were hit simultaneously. Oswald couldn’t have fired fast enough to have hit them with two shots, much less the fatal shot that hit Kennedy in the head seconds later. Reenactments by gun experts have a very difficult time repeating what Oswald was claimed to have done.

Like many Americans, I suspect the following:

Either the CIA or proxies of them got Oswald to think he was the only one involved to avoid a conspiracy question. But all along, unbeknown to Oswald,there was another gunman who would fire in case Oswald missed. There was real cause for the CIA or elements within it or those who had taken part in the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba, to want Kennedy dead. Kennedy did have enemies and after the Bay of Pigs fiasco in 1961, some blamed Kennedy for not supporting it at a critical time (he called it off when things began to go wrong). The fiasco exposed the CIA and the plan became public to overthrow Castro. There were those who felt betrayed. Retribution could have easily been in the cards.

There must be something pointing to this in some of the documents still not released to the public after 50 years. There is no other logical reason why full disclosure and all the papers relating to this event have not be made available to the public.

There is something in them that implicates the CIA or some other Americans. In another 30 years, anyone alive then who had a memory of the event will be long dead. Maybe then will all the papers be made available.

      That is true. As in the X-files- the truth is out there in the 1200 documents on the assassination.
