The John F. Kennedy Assassination

On November 22,1963,President Kennedy was in attendance at a Dallas parade.One of the biggest tragic moments happened in U.S. history before the naked eye.President John F. Kennedy was assassinated around 12:34 he celebrated with the Dallas crowd to show admiration towards them and their city(Mintaglio 60).The suspected assassin Robert L. Oswald,a former U.S. marine,was afterward caught not long following the assassination in a near by theatre(Newman 56).Later to discover he himself was assassinated by Jack Ruby while he was being escorted publicly to the court room.A study of the John F.Kennedy assassination would include the conspiracy theories, the plans of the assassination ,and the alleged suspects' connections.

First of all, the Kennedy assassination dealt with numerous conspiracies in diverse ways. President Kennedy's

Excoriation of the parade still raises questions because of the sluggish speed of the President's car when he was parting the parade to the Dallas freeway. Furthermore,the driver of the Kennedy's car decided to amend the route he was supposed

to take(Marcus 187).

The alleged assassin Robert L. Oswald was also a

Abdelghani2 assassinated in his uncommon public excoriation to his testimony.Despite the heavy security of 63 officers around Oswald before he was shot.Ruby was able to get through reporters in the environs of Oswald and get a point blank shot at Oswald's gut critically wounding him and later died because of the wounds(Sneed 339).Oswald had told officials he fired the Italian rifle three times and hit the President twice at an unfeasible range for the inaccurate rifle.To add a bigger twist to the investigations,witnesses near the shooting of the President told officials that as many as six shots where heard shot.Even more arcane Cody Kennedy's number was found in Oswald's address book officials had obtained(Minutaglio 159). The killing of Oswald by Jack Ruby made the mafia get in the picture with alleged connections to the Kennedy assassination(Bryce 69).

Secondly, the planning of the assassination of President Kennedy was exceptionally one of the most well-planned killings ever witnessed.Every thing had to be in the right place at the right time and almost impossible for one person to pull it off all alone.Oswald decided to keep cover in the Texas School of Book Depository on the sixth floor.The particular location was probably the because of the clear shots he had on Kennedy as he was leaving the parade(Bryce 21).

The killing of Oswald was well planned because it made the investigation harder to solve with the prime suspect

killed(Sneed 456).Jack Ruby the mobster club owner refused to cooperate with investigators and denied to let anyone know why he really killed Oswald.Ruby later died in jail because of cancer and still left a big knot in the investigation of Kennedy's assassination(JFK Assassination Reasearch material).

The unusual signs just prior to the Kennedy's assassination led to some questions but everything went as planned because of the smoothness of executing the plan. Consequently, the Presidents car leaving the parade at ten miles an hour and left Oswald with a easier shot at President Kennedy. Also, the Presidents car leaving the parade through the new route was closer to Oswald's hideout(John F.Kennedy Assassination Homepage).Subsequently,the new route disorientated the police guards at there post and it made the view for Oswald's shot unmistakable at President Kennedy(Sneed 311).With everyone hearing a high powered rifle being shot, police had a tough time looking for the accurate suspect with a rifle because almost everyone in Dallas had one in there truck during the hunting season(Minutaglio 149).Thus,evidence showed that the assassination was well planned.

Finally, the C.I.A., Oswald ,and Ruby had many connections with the assassination of Kennedy.Ruby was known for his mob relations and kept the mob still as an assumed suspect for the murder of Kennedy(JFK The Kenndy Assassination Homepage).

The C.I.A was believed to have relations with Oswald

Abdelghani 4 because of Mexico tourist permits.The permits 24082 through 24086 were Oswald's Mexico permits with the exception of permit 24084 that was registered under a agent of the C.I.A. They were believed to have held a meeting discussing the plans for the assassination of Kennedy(Newman 350).This was enough evidence to keep the C.I.A. in the investigation but not adequate to make a conviction.

The C.I.A was in attendance at the Dallas parade to secure the area.A unanimous photographer said that the picture he took with a C.I.A. squad car with the doors cracked open and looked as if they were waiting on something.Seconds later the shooting begun and left everyone
