Was The JFK Assassination A Conspiracy?

Was the murder of John F Kennedy a conspiracy, or did Lee Harvey Oswald act alone? A recent Gallup Poll indicates 61% of Americans believe it was a conspiracy. I’m one of the sixty-one percent. You may or may not recall the events of that November day. I remember it very clearly. I’d seen the movie PT-109 earlier in the year. I didn’t know what a Pulitzer Prize was, but I knew his book “Profiles in Courage” had won one. That’s a pretty impressive sounding title to a 7 year old. President Kennedy was larger than life in the eyes of this second grader.

Reports have surfaced over the years that JFK’s father used bribery & mob connections to swing the 1960 presidential election. “The Dark Side of Camelot” by Seymour Hersch explores JFK’s personal life, and allegations of criminal behavior by Joseph P. Kennedy.

JFK appointed his brother, Bobby, Attorney General, and launched his “war on organized crime.” It would appear the Kennedys stepped on a few toes.  Many people’s opinions on the subject have been influenced by the Oliver Stone film “JFK.” It should be remembered the movie was a dramatization, not a documentary.

Here’s an intriguing thought. Bobby was assassinated after winning the California Primary in the 1968 presidential elction. Is there a connection?
