Who Killed JFK?
I’ll Tell You!
The murder of John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963 shocked the nation. A suspect was quickly arrested and subsequently murdered. President Lyndon Johnson appointed a blue ribbon committee – the Warren Commission – to answer the question: who killed JFK?
Their conclusion was that Lee Harvey Oswald was the sole assassin. Immediately, the public was skeptical. Stephen King described Oswald as “a semi-educated hillbilly with delusions of grandeur.” How could such an insignificant loser pull off such a dastardly crime? And why did Jack Ruby, accused of being a Mob member, kill Oswald?
We have been through with whispered knowledge of conspiracies and confessions and coverups. And so the public has asked for an explanation of the “magic bullet.”
And the contradictory witness statements.
And Oswald’s shadowy past.
And all of the “secret files.”
And all of the conspiracy theories.
And all of the “mysterious deaths” associated with assassination?
Books and articles, movies and documentaries have raised in innumerable questions about who killed JFK.
Who Killed JFK – Computer Analysis
So who killed JFK? whoI will attempt to answer as many of these questions as possible. First I will attempt to separate historical fact from theory & speculation. Second, I will show what the historical record actually indicates happened. We have access to much more information today then the Warren Commission had in 1963/4 or the House of Representatives had in 1977. Third, we will examine what modern computer forensics can tell us about the crime. For instance, the Warren Commission had access to the “Zapruder Film.” Ttoday, we can use computers to enhance and analyze the film. We can use modern technology to analyze the path of each of the bullets that was fired.
And we can use computers to isolate the mysterious sounds captured by a Dallas motorcycle patrolman. In 1977, the House of Representatives believed that the recording showed four shots fired in Dealy Plaza. The National Academy of Science, among many other groups, have taken the same sound recordings and used state-of-the-art technology to analyze them. What do we know now?
You may not agree with my conclusions, but you will definitely learn a lot and come away with a new perspective about the historical record of who killed JFK.
