Increasing Belief That Oswald Didn't Kill President John F. Kennedy
It has been more than 50 years since President John Kennedy was assassinated . Still people argue about whether or not Lee Harvey Oswald, who was charged with murder in the death of Kennedy, acted alone.
There have always been people who have insisted that it would be impossible for a lone gunman to have completed this deadly mission. Much of the details died with Oswald who, too, was murdered. He was shot to death by Jack Ruby before his version of the story could really unfold.
Oddly, the number of people who believe that Oswald did not act alone has increased as the years pass, according to the research organization, Rasmussen Reports . This company commissioned a pollster to track how many Americans subscribe to the lone gunman theory (what I refer to as the ONE NUT THEORY) versus some sort of conspiracy to by a group of people to do away with Kennedy for some complicated, nefarious reason.
While the majority of Americans (45 percent) still believe that Kennedy was murdered by Oswald (the lone gunman theory), according to the recent poll, about 32 percent of Americans now believe that Oswald did not act alone. That figure has steadily been increasing over the last few years.
I would have understood if the number increased directly after the Oliver Stone movie or after some groundbreaking research, but the upsurge in the idea that there was some sort of conspiracy in the Kennedy assassination seems sort of random to me.
Do you believe that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone when he murdered President John Kennedy. Or, do you think other people had to be involved. One writer friend said many people just can fathom that one person could have planned such a well-thought-out---and successful---plan.
