For 50 years, the murder of President John F. Kennedy has prompted dark suspicions about what led to those tragic moments in Dallas' Dealey Plaza. Hidden-hand theories about the assassination fueled numerous movies and books in the years that followed and shaped a national culture of conspiracy. The Oswald-didn't-do-it (or didn't-do-it-alone) theory is the granddaddy of conspiracy theories; it paved the way for alternative (and sinister) explanations for a variety of events, including the assassinations or RFK and MLK Jr. and the 9/11 attacks. The JFK theorizing -- which, in certain cases, posits that a cabal of government evildoers schemed the most notorious crime of 20th Century America -- made  The X Files  possible.

[...]

I assume that Oswald shot the president. That loses me many JFK truthers. But the story of what brought this one man to the 6th floor of the Texas Book Depository is what's important and probably indeed the tale of an actual conspiracy--one that was in plain sight at the time.
