Clearly, Oswald was the shooter and he acted alone.

In his marvellous book "Reclaiming History", Vincent Bugliosi lists 40+ facts, all of which by themselves strongly hint to Oswald's guilt.

Among them:
* He was carrying a lenghty paper bag (hiding the murder weapon) when he entered the Texas School Book Depository on that morning (witness Wesley Frazier)
* He was seen shooting at the President out of the window of the sixth floor of the Depository by witness Howard Brennan
* the murder weapon belonged to him
* His finger prints were lifted from cartons forming a sniper's nest on the sixth floor of the Book Depository
* He was the only empolyee of the Book Depository not accounted for at a roll call shortly after the assassination
* Some 45 minutes later he killed police officer Tippit, being identified by several eye-witnesses
* shortly thereafter he was arrested in a cinema, carrying a gun that later was identified as the murder weapon in the Tippit case

Oswald killed Kennedy, but he was simply the front man for a wider conspiracy.

God. The lamestream media is here too. When will people under the proven fact that it was a hitjob by both George H.W. Bush and Ted Cruz's dad. People are so stupid, it's unreal.

But you forgot about the FBI, the CIA, LBJ, the Mafia, Fidel Castro and Cuba, the KGB and the Soviet Union, the Illuminati, the Military-Industrial Complex, the Federal Reserve.

But I do not place any credence in the Rafael Cruz theory.

I used to be a person who believed there was a second shooter, until I got older and the facts overwhelmingly support Oswald. His own brother was interviewed quite recently and basically said, "My brother was insane". He left his wallet and wedding ring on the dresser for his wife before he left that day. Told his friend he had "curtain rods" to take to work.

The only question that baffles me was how he was about to defect to the Soviet Union and return no questions asked.

Shut down the Internet. We don't need it anymore. There will never be a take as hot as this one.

In all seriousness, Oswald was guilty for the reasons spelled out above, though the whole Ruby thing and things I've read about the Mafia suggest he may have been tied into something bigger. Giancana/Trafficante, all that

The UFO theory goes like this:

In a new FOIA request it was learned however, that the young president was trying to uncover what the U.S. Government and other international Governments knew about UFOs here on Earth just ten days before his assassination.

It seems that President Kennedy was leading a charge to disclose that the Government knew about extraterrestrials here on Earth and the powers that be (such as a shadow Government or secret society) had him killed to protect their secret.

People close to him have stated that he was planning on giving an Earth changing speech on November 22, 1963. Many speculate, that this had to do with recovered extraterrestrial UFO crafts and secret societies that control many aspects of our everyday life.

The only question that baffles me was how he was about to defect to the Soviet Union and return no questions asked.

1.How did he fire so many shots in the amount of time. (I realize the first shot shouldn't be counted.)
2.You believe the ridiculous 'single bullet theory'?
3.Why did Jack Ruby kill Oswald?  

The 'I was angry he killed the President' he basically said is nonsense given that he was a member of the Mafia which hated President Kennedy.  If this weren't part of a conspiracy theory, every logical conclusion would be that Ruby killed Oswald to silence him.

I don't think there is any reason to believe that Ruby had personal views on Kennedy that differed from the views of the Mafia.

I don't believe in most conspiracy theories, but in this case I think Oswald was telling the truth when he said he was 'just a patsy.'

He was a crack marine sharpshooter.

2.You believe the ridiculous 'single bullet theory'?

What are you going on about? The President was struck with two bullets this is widely established.

3.Why did Jack Ruby kill Oswald?

I honestly don't know but literally all the other real evidence concludes that Oswald acted alone, unless you're arguing that Oswald was knowingly "in on it" with the Mafia. This is really begging a "one single proof" fallacy. Also it is arguing that the Mafia would be stupid enough to actually kill the POTUS, thusly bringing the Federal Government down on their operations like a ton of bricks.

The only way to argue otherwise is to allege active collusion with the Mafia by elements of the US government, which does put firmly in tinfoil territory.
