John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated at 12:30 p.m. Central Standard Time on the 22nd of November, 1963, by Lee Harvey Oswald when he was travelling with his wife, the governor, and the governor's wife in a presidential motorcade.
The 35th President of the United States was assassinated on a Friday afternoon and the 10-month long investigation into the incident ruled that Oswald acted alone in the crime. In 1979, however, the United States House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) ruled that it was possibly a conspiracy.
They suspected the presence of another gunman, but investigations were not able to find any reliable evidence to support this fact. A poll conducted in 2013 revealed that 60% of Americans believed that Kennedy's assassination was a conspiracy. Only 20-30% believed that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone.
It's no wonder there are so many conspiracy theories going around in the country even after 50 years of the President's death. Right from the CIA to the KGB to the president's wife and the then vice president, many people and organizations have been claimed to be connected to the assassination of JFK.
This book is an attempt to look at the assassination and some of the different conspiracy theories about John F. Kennedy's death.
