IMO Oswald acted alone and I believe the Warren Commissions findings.

I’m not sure what I think happened, but I don’t think it happened like we’ve been told it did. There’s some crazy stuff on this website:

@legenwaitforitdary:  that was a good movie and book. I got a signed copy of the book. Surprisingly to me, Rob Lowe played a decent JFK.

Not saying that it’s true or that I believe it, but there was stuff there that I had never seen before, haha. The whole angle with Officer Tippit was something new for me.

I haven’t seen this movie.

So I cannot speak to the conspiracy theory that it puts out there…

But I have seen many others, and various documentaries over the years.

I also lived thru the tubulent 1960s, and one cannot truly imagine how those times were unless you did live thru them.

I did, I was a wee child when JFK was shot (remember iconic Walter Cronkite of CBS… and the Funeral more than anything else).  It was hard not to be mesmorized by it all… much like 9/11 was in our time… but Tv News like this was very much a NEW thing in those days.

Personally, I’ve always thought that there was more to the story…

Just too many weird things went on…

My theory was it was an inside America job (not outside as some think – ala the Bay of Pigs) but rather a way to shut down this dynamic / world changing Presidency… and his liberal views of the world.

Those were the times… people who were front and centre and went against the “old school” thoughts sometimes were murdered (sadly)

I think what an amazing man President Kennedy was… and the changes that he brought about to the USA… what might have happened if he had lived ?

In the same way that I think of … Martin Luther King – Robert Kennedy – or even John Lennon (not to mention President Lincoln)

Times changed… and moved on.

The next awful year was 1980-81 (John Lennon Asscination – then attempts on President Reagan – and Pope John Paul II)

Combined with the US Hostage Crisis… that was a horrible year.

And the year I was married the first time… I remember thinking… Oh my gosh, here we go again… I was looking forward and with great fear about “starting” a new life in turbulent times.
