12. Was JFK’s Assassination Really A Conspiracy?
The quick answer to that question is yes, that is, according to the House Select Committee on Assassinations. This 1976 committee was tasked with re-investigating both the JFK and MLK shootings and by the end of their investigation they concluded that “The committee believes, on the basis of the evidence available to it, that President John F. Kennedy was probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy.” Although they wouldn’t say who.
All they would say is that the evidence suggested a second gunman was involved, but they stopped short of saying who that might be and how extensive the conspiracy might have been. No wonder over 60% of Americans still believes that the president of the United States was NOT killed by a lone nut.
It should be noted that in the almost five decades since the House Select Committee on Assassinations came to this astonishing conclusion, many of the pieces of evidence they used to settle on that answer have been roundly debunked.
