Kennedy Murder
If Lee Harvey Oswald killed J.F.K. and it wasnít a conspiracy, then why
is the government still withholding reports done on the assassination from the
publicís eyes, in the FBIís possession? President Kennedy was assassinated
in 1963 on November 22. He was elected president in 1961. First he was a
senator. Then he went straight from Capitol Hill to the White House. Robert

Kennedy was attorney general and was J. F. K.\'s brother. He was head of the
investigation of the assassination after Kennedy was killed (3: 1-5). Both

Robert and J. F. K. knew that people wanted to kill them. J. F. K. didnít
worry about it. But after John F. Kennedy was killed, his brother Robert Kennedy
ordered that the casket was to be kept closed to public viewing. Robert thought
it would have been him to get killed first, not his brother (5: 83). Robert
encouraged his brother to sign three anti-crime bills. The bills targeted
organized crime. They were used to stop gambling or at least crack down on it
(7: NP). But even with the bills, the FBI director, Hoover, was afraid to go
after the mob before the assassination because he thought his agents would
become corrupt, and because Castro knew about the conspiracy against him. Hoover
even told his agents that if the Mafia caught them, they would be fired and
would be treated as a renegade (5: 84). The government didnít approve of the
crack down on the mob that was in America. Teddy Kennedy loved busting the

Mafia. People like Jimmy Hoffa. Even Frank Sinatra became close friends with

Teddy, even made trips to the White House (3: 12-18). But just like his brother

John, Robert was also killed (3: 105). After the assassination Robert carried on
the bills and got killed also (3: 105). In 1962 Cuba was known to have missiles
from the Soviet Union in Cuba. They thought Cuba or the Soviet Union would make
a nuclear strike. Accused of helping the soviet union wage war on the U.S.,
enemies and suspects were made (7: NP). Neither the FBI nor the CIA approved of
getting into the Vietnam War. They didnít approve of any of the presidentís
decisions (3: 105). There were three shots, even a possible four. Some people
think that the last shot was one from an agentís gun going off into J.F.K.ís
head after reacting to the shots (5: 84-85). The first shot missed. The second
shot hit J.F.K.ís shoulder, back, and throat; and Connallyís shoulder,
wrist, and leg (5: 84-85). But how could one bullet travel with that much force
to go through all of that flesh? The third shot was fatal to Kennedy but was
very far away, very accurate, and deadly efficient (5: 99). Even the FBIís
best couldnít shot with Oswaldís gun that accurately (5: 84-85). The gun was
tested by the FBI and was found to be off centered. Many people coming from the
grassy knoll heard the possible fourth shot. Someone was also seen running away
from the knoll and was seen lingering there before the shots rang out. Whoever
it was seemed to look like a FBI agent. The three shots that rang out on that
very famous day can not be done in that same amount of time or with that
accuracy even today (5: 84-85). Oswald was a very simple person with many mental
problems. He mail ordered the gun that he supposedly shot Kennedy with. It only
cost 21 dollars and was bought under a bogus name (5: 90). And after buying the
gun Oswald had his wife take a picture of him holding the gun up by his side (3:

1-3). Why would Oswald take a picture of himself and the gun if he was planning
to kill the President? You canít expect a very good shot to come from a mail
order gun for 21 dollars and with a mental case handling it. During the middle
of the cold war Oswald ran to Russia and came home disillusioned. Oswald tried
to get citizenship in Moscow and when they refused him he cut his wrists (5:

71). And soon after Oswald met with Valery Vladimirovich Kostikov, a Russian
ambassador, and with out Oswald knowing, he wrote a memo to his superiors asking
if Oswald was in or out of the assassination plot (5: 90). Oswald was such a bad
shot that once while he was still in the marines he shot himself in the foot
while at post in Japan. Oswald wanted to leave the country so bad that
