Investigating Motives Behind Popular Conspiracy Theories

Most people who were alive at the time remember exactly where they were on the fateful day of November 22, 1963. On that day President John F. Kennedy arrived in Dallas to a crowd of excited people lining the streets, when suddenly, several shots rang out and the thirty-fifth President of the United States was assassinated. The United States mourned the death of its young and inspiring President.

It has now been nearly forty years since the assassination of John F. Kennedy and many people are still uncertain as to who is actually responsible for his assassination. It was officially concluded at the Warren Commission that Lee Harvey Oswald was a crazed, lone gunman, who shot the President three times, with no ties to central intelligence. Through the years, however, hundreds of conspiracy theories have developed, and with good reason. Many had grounds to kill the former President, including the CIA, the mafia, political extremists, and even JFK's vice-president Lyndon Johnson. By investigating some of their possible motives, it is actually hard to believe a conspiracy didn't take place in Dallas.
