Assassination of JFK
JAKE Lee Harvey Oswald On November 22, 1963 JFK was assassinated. Though to this day it is unknown weather the accused killer Oswald, acted alone or was a “patsy” as he claimed. Lee Harvey Oswald was the perfect fall guy for such a conspiracy. He was a former US marine that defected to USSR. He was a Marxist with communist believes. He did support Kennedy’s view on Cuba and was said to have handed out pro Castro propaganda. Oswald may have not supported the President, he may have even wanted him dead. Though he was not capable of the assassination alone. Oswald worked in the Book Depository building where the shots were allegedly fired from. I believe it would have been impossible for Oswald to have killed the president, for a number of reasons. Oswald was right handed the Italian Rifle he was said to have used was set up for someone that was left handed. From the window he was supposedly perched at their was a huge tree blocking his vision. Oswald was also said to be a very poor shot when he was in the Marines. Whoever the gunmen were, they fired their five to six shots very accurately. The fatal head wound shown the presidents head to have moved back and to left indicating that the shot came from the front. Oswald was behind the president and could not have inflicted that wound. Moments prior to the shooting Oswald was on the second floor of the building drinking a Coke. When he was confronted in the building after the shooting he was said to have been calm and collective. You would think after someone had committed the murder of the century they would be a little more tense. Oswald did not appear to be tense at all. He exited the building from the front door of the building. If he had committed the murder he would probably have escaped from the building through a different door. Oswald was a mere pawn in the conspiracy and the assassination of JFK. He was not the trigger man just a mere patsy as he said. Their are thousands of files that have been reviewed by two committees since the assassination. One of them the Warren commission believed that Oswald was the lone assassin.
