There are many speculations as to how and why President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. Some believe that it was the work of Lee Harvey Oswald. Others believe that the CIA played a part in the former President’s assassination. It all comes down to questions. What really happened on the afternoon of November 22, 1963?
The United States has seen many attempts on leaders’ lives in its short history. Assassinations have been attempted on fifteen U.S. Presidents, resulting in four deaths. The other eleven attempted murders are often long forgotten by everyday persons, however the assassination attempt on Ronald Reagan in March of 1981 has had so many numerous effects on today’s society that it should not be erased from the history boards. What could have started such a ground breaking and on going event? Oddly enough, it began with a film; Taxi Driver starring Robert De Niro and a young Jodie Foster, is about a New York taxi driver who saves the life of a child prostitute by killing a senator.
The 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy, was assassinated by rogue elements in the United States government and American Security Services (CIA, FBI, Secret Service, etc).By analysing evidence from the Warren Commission, The House Select Committee on Assassinations, FBI reports, the Zapruder and Hughes films and the many conspiracy theories that exist, we can conclude who assassinated President John F. Kennedy. At around 12.30pm on the 22nd of November 1963, John Kennedy was shot on Elm Street in Dallas, Texas. He was shot twice, once in the head and once in the back, a third shot had injured Texas governor Connally. Kennedy and Connally were then rushed to the Parkland Memorial Hospital and placed in separate emergency
In 1963, on November 22, President John F. Kennedy rode in a motorcade along with Governor Connally of Texas and both men’s wives. Idanell Connally, the governor’s wife, turned to Kennedy as they passed the Texas Schoolbook Depository and said, “Mr. President, you can't say that Dallas doesn't love you.” Kennedy replied, “That’s obvious,” before being fatally shot (JFK). Something that is not obvious, though, is who fired these shots, and why it was done. To figure out the true assassin and the motive behind the murder, Lyndon B. Johnson, Kennedy’s successor as President of the United States, instated the Warren Commission, a board of 7 men whose job was to investigate and report upon the assassination of Kennedy.
Kennedy was riding in an open limousine when suddenly he was shot in the neck and then the head by a sniper. He was rushed to the Parkland Memorial Hospital where he was later pronounced dead. A few minutes after the shooting, Dallas Police arrested Lee
One of the many Americans was Martin Luther King Jr., "a strong worker for civil right for members of his race" (Nobel1). It was November 21st, 1963 when President Kennedy was shot. His car was driving "slowly past cheering crowd" when he was shot ( Library7). He died shortly after being shot because he was wounded badly. Hours later, the police found Lee Hrvey, the man who shot Presidnet Kennedy ans was charged for murder.

Who was REALLY behind John F. Kennedy’s assassination? One of the most shocking events of the 20th century was undoubtedly that of the assassination of John F. Kennedy. No one expected that on a perfectly clear day such was that of Friday,November 22,in Dallas, Texas, at precisely 12:30 p.m. Central standard time in the Dailey Plaza president Kennedy would be shot fatally while he was riding Jacqueline Kennedy, his wife, in the Presidential motorcade. After a ten-month investigation of the Warren Commission of 1963–1964, the United States House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) of 1976–1979, and other government investigations concluded that the President was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald. Afterward Jack Ruby murdered Oswald
