Transcript of JFK Assassination

John Fitzgerald Kennedy
By: Javier Vasquez
World History 11.4 John F. Kennedy
-Born on May 29, 1917 in Brooklyn, Massachuseets.
-Became the 35th United States President in 1961
-Youngest President
-First Catholic President Assassinated on November 22, 1963 at the age of 46 in Dallas, Texas. The "Kennedy Assassination" Happened on November 22, 1962, on Friday at 12:30 pm. Two days after Lee Harvey's capture, he was killed.
11:21am November 24th, 1963, Oswald was killed by Jack Ruby while being transferred to the County Jail Motive for Jack Ruby It's a mystery. Did Jack Ruby do this for as a "savior" for our country? Did Jack Ruby do this so that Lee Harvey Oswald wouldn't talk and possibly say something about the government being corrupt. The government states that John F. Kennedy was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald alone. However there are millions of American citizens, including myself who suspect that there was a plot behind this assassination. Watch this video closely, would the Secret Service, the best at providing security, call two men down. JFK would probably still be alive if it weren't for these orders. Time line of Assassination President JFK arrives
in Dallas, Texas 11:40am 12:32pm Presidential motorcade
enters Dealey Plaza. Motorcade turns onto Elm Street only 65 feet away from the Texas Book Depository. President JFK shot on Elm Street. After the last shot is
fired, Lee Harvey
Oswald is confronted
by Dallas Police officer
Marion Barber in the
second floor lunchroom
while waiting on a phone call. 12:30pm Oswald leaves
Depository through
the front door 12:33 pm Oswald arrives at his
residency through
bus and a cab 1 pm Oswald accused of killing Dallas
Police officer J.D.
Tippit 1:16 pm Who was Lee Harvey Oswald? Lone Gunman Theory Evidence For Lone Gunman Theory Who was Jack Ruby? The Single-Bullet Theory The bullet that shot JFK through the throat was the same one that wounded governor Connally's back and his thigh. A 3cm long copper-jacketed lead-core.
15 layers of clothing, 7 layers of skin, and about 15 inches of tissue, struck a nectie knot, removed 4 inches of rib, and shattered a radius bone. Questions arise now, how can Lee Harvey
Oswald pull this off by himself? Three bullets, 6 wounds. Where's the third bullet? Evidence Against the Lone Gunman theory JFK autopsy One of the explanations regarding the "Kennedy Assassination".
This theory states that Lee Harvey Oswald, a single gunman, killed JFK.
However, this theory then led to many suspicions and conspiracy concerning this event. Lee Harvey Oswald was a former U.S. Marine and opposed the Soviet Union in October 1959.
According to the government, he was the person who assassinated President JFK.
He was murdered by Jack Ruby on November 24th, 1963 in Dallas, Texas. He murdered Lee Harvey
Oswald on November 24th of 1963. Some people believe Jack Ruby was involved in the conspiracy theories of the "Kennedy Assassination". Witnesses said they saw a rifle fired from the window of the 6th floor of the Depository Building.
Witnesses stated that Oswald was seen bringing the rifle into the Depository Building.
The government concluded that Oswald had capabilities to fire 3 shots in that short amount of time since he was a former U.S. Marine. The time between President JFK and Governor Connolly being shot was not enough time for 3 bullets to be shot so accurately.
Six wounds by one person in 3 bullets?
People believe that the investigations done by the Warren Commission wasn't enough proof and contained many flaws. The third bullet was the head shot that killed him instantly. As you notice, the bullet came from the front. How can you say that? Well look closely, John F. Kennedy's head rocks back then falls over to the left. If a bullet was shot from behind his head would've went straight forward. The Secret Service Conspiracy "No actions were taken by the agent in the right front seat of the Presidential limousine to cover the President with his body, although it would have been consistent with Secret Service procedure for him to have done so. The primary function of the agent was to remain at all times in close range to the President in the event of such emergencies." - HSCA Three Tramps Conspiracy Theory Who is E. Howard Hunt? E. Howard hunt was a former station chief in the CIA and he was also involved in the Bay of Pigs invasion with JFK. Hunt claimed to have been in Washington DC when the assassination took place, however three suspicious men were at the scene and one of them resembled Hunt in the photos. Secondary Suspects David Ferrie
US Government
The Dallas Police Department
Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson The Grassy knoll Conspiracy theory
Witnesses reported that they heard a gunshot coming from the circled part above. That can also explain how JFK was shot through the front of the vehicle and how 6 bullets were fired. It would've been impossible for Oswald himself to fire 6 rounds in 6 seconds so accurately. Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested for the murder of JD Tippit after witnesses reported that they heard 4 gunshots go off and saw a man with a revolver run away. The bullets in Officer JD Tippit didn't match the bullets in Oswald's revolver. Pretty shady right? That's how all these theories are in question. My opinion: I believe that Lee Harvey Oswald was an FBI informant or CIA member and he was apart of a group who helped him commit the murder.
An assassin would need to have good info on the location of the President in order to pull of a successful assassination. The group Oswald would most likely be associated with is a group that would have the biggest motive for killing the president. It's possible that Vice President Nixon could've helped Oswald commit the murder through his connection with other people in the CIA. People involved in gov't duties such as Vice President and the FBI would have the most knowledge of the president's whereabouts. Therefor it would make sense if Oswald was apart of it or affiliated with someone who had info on the President. If Oswald was working with two other people to kill JFK then there had to had been one person who knew the exact location of the president, who gives the assassins the information, and another person who was with Oswald when committing the murder. If there were 6 bullet holes in each individual, then Oswald and someone else had to fire at least 3 tomes. This makes more sense then the magic bullet theory, even though its possible for a bullet to ricochet. The "Kennedy Assassination" has been a mystery for almost 50 years now. Many people have been trying to investigate and research about this case in many different aspects, but there is still not enough evidence to prove what actually happened that day. We believe the CIA were responsible for JFK's death because of the many facts that prove that the CIA was linked to the assassination of JFK. Sources
