Kennedys assasination

On November 22, 1963, at 12:30 in the afternoon, President John F. Kennedy was shot at and
killed while participating in a motorcade in Dallas, Texas. The most important question
that arises from this incident is ‘Who killed President John F. Kennedy?' This is an
issue which has been debated by scholars, The Government, and even common people alike.
Many people seem to feel that it was a conspiracy, some large cover-up within a cover-up.
Some theories are that it was organized by the CIA, Fidel Castro, an Anarchist group, even
by Vice-President Lyndon Johnson. However, once all the evidence is examined, it appears
that the assassination was done by a lone man. So much of the evidence, from the way the
assassination occurred, to the details of the alleged assassins' life, and even to the
official government findings and a film of the assassination, all point to the fact that
there was no conspiracy and that Kennedy was killed by a lone gunman, Lee Harvey Oswald.
Evidence that proves Oswald's guilt are as follows; Oswald was pro-Communist, and hated
America. He was in the Depository at the time of the assassination, and searches of the
building found evidence of his work. The rifle with his finger prints on it was found by a
make-shift snipers nest. Witnesses on the day claimed to see the shots fired from the
sixth story window of the Depository. Oswald was one of the few working in the building on
that day, which raises even more suspicion about him. Oswald had access to all the
materials needed to kill the President. The fact that Oswald killed the police officer
questioning him speaks volumes about his guilt as well. Despite the testimony of the
witnesses, perhaps the clearest evidence of Oswald's guilt comes from footage of the
assassination and the official government report. The Zapruder Film is the only known
