And for that, he is just as guilty as the other conspirators... an accesory after the fact.
There is NO WAY Oswald did that shooting in the manner the Warren Commission claims.
To believe the Warren Commission, you must believe the Magic Bullet Theory.
Well The History Channel and it's owners have stepped in it this time.
LadyBird and Carter represent the Democrat Establishment
Bill Moyers represents the Liberal TV establishment.
Jack Valenti is the Hollywood Establishment.
There are no do-gooders left to come to their defense.
Ruby: "I've been used."
Find out why these remarks were made and the 'conspiracy' will unravel.
I use the word, 'conspiracy' loosely, as it was no conspiracy, IMO. It was an operation. The only people who didn't know about it was the general public and JFK.
What was Specter's role? I thought he was on the Commission when he first put forth the "magic bullet" theory? Or was he just counsel?
However, I'm also aware of four simple facts.
First, it is possible that Oswald acted alone. I don't think it's likely, particularly when he gets knocked off by a guy that runs a topless bar and has known mob connections. I have several other problems with this scenario, but the Ruby hit on Oswald is the biggest indicator to me that something bigger was going on.
Second, LBJ, even in his biography, was more interested in getting the Kennedy assassination investigation finished than in an actual investigation (in his book, he phrases it more like putting the American people's mind at ease or something. It's been years since I read it).
Third, so many people have traipsed over the evidence that it's impossible to clearly determine what is fact, wishful thinking, planted evidence, lost evidence, etc. Trying to discover the truth now is like trying to use a bloodhound to track someone who walked through Grand Central Station in 1963.
Fourth, a series of events took place that made the Kennedy assassination the most tantalizing mystery in US history. It happened in front of millions of people; there were videos and photos of it; the murderer wasn't seen by anyone at the time of the assassination; he got murdered a couple of days later by a guy who later died of cancer. It's a cottage industry that probably brings in more money than Roswell, the Loch Ness monster and Harry Potter combined. There will always be another theory, as long as there's a buck to be made.

Why I'm No Longer a Conspiracy BuffCutting to the chase - an excerpt of the closing:
By Michael Beck / January 17, 1998
The Physical EvidenceI won't spend a lot of time here. The physical evidence all points toward Oswald's guilt. It was his rifle, the ammunition matched his gun, and a photograph of him holding the rifle (backyard photo) and actual fingerprints also tie him to the weapon that he denied even owning. That's pretty open and shut. Other than that, you have his pistol, the match to the primer marks on the discarded .38 cartridges, and his physical location in the Texas Theater. The medical evidence, when analyzed properly, also shows two shots to the back of JFK; one in the back of the head and one in the upper back that punched through his throat. Again, pretty cut and dried. Reading too much into the autopsy report is an interesting mental exercise. However, I tend to believe that the medical experts that examined ALL of this material for the HSCA got it right.
ConclusionIn conclusion, I used to believe in a conspiracy but "reformed" after applying a healthy dose of "common sense" to my beliefs.
My "conversion" resulted from applying the same critical analysis techniques that the "buffs" used to attack the Warren Commission report.
It also involved personal visits to the crime scene (now totaling over 6) and independent research on shooting and ballistics.
It also involved seeing the most vociferous buffs such as Robert Groden, David Lifton, and Oliver Stone for what they are; Hucksters with an Agenda.
I kick myself now for ever believing in them at all.
