    I like a documentary of an evening, I'm getting to that age I think. Anyhow, who believes the official line that LHO acted alone? Or was it multiple shooters,

    Personally, I think the whole thing stinks. There is definitely more to it, than the Warren Reports "findings"

    Some say one of the Secret Service agents fired a shot by mistake.

    And also who put Oswald (if any) up to it?

    The Mob?
    KKK?
    Cubans?
    Marilyn Monroe's Dad?

    In the shady US political world, nothing would surprise me. I think LHO could have been a patsy for either the CIA or FBI.

    There are plenty of conspiracy theories over 9/11 too.

    How about Arthur Miller- upset at his ex wife having an affair with JFK ?

    He was a clever enough chap .

    Joe DiMaggio was handy with projectiles and trajectories too .

    It seems inevitable that the death of popular prominent people becomes surrounded by speculation and conspiracy theories. Kennedy was one, Princess Diana another.

    Here's a quick self-test.

    If you believe in more than one conspiracy theory, then you are most likely wrong.

    Chances are you are simply the type of person who tends to beleive in conspiracy theories.

    But if you believe in just one.... then you may have a point.

    I'm not big on conspiracy theories myself just reflecting on the tendancy of people to generate "noise" around major tragedies. The more prominent/popular the person the greater the noise level. Unfortunately this "static" can totally mask any "signal" that may or may not be there. It's more a comment on the process of discovery rather than the validity any result.

    Conspiracy theories are a particularly American phenomenon. - That's not to say that other peoples don't come up with them, just that there's something about American culture that makes them predisposed.

    There was an article I was reading; I'll have to try to find it again.

    I don't think this is the one I read last time, but it sounds like the same research from the UK:

    The 911 conspiracy is a piece of nonsense. The Americans instructed two infidels to crash into the twin towers? Killing thousands. Give me a break

    Read "American Tabloid" by James Ellroy.......that will offer your mind a few more puzzles about who did what to whom and why.

    CIA Conspiracy, Screw-up, Lone Psycho, Organised Crime Hit, Soviet Sponsored Hit

    Those seem to be the popular options. Whichever it was, the aftermath was incompetent bordering on Keystone Cops.

    I favour; initial shots from the repository building, followed by security guard accidentally discharging his weapon that hit JFK in the head at close rang, followed by cover up.

    I think it was the people from Mars, those little green devils get up to all sorts of high jinks.

    Conspiracy theories take an aspect of the official version which seems implausible, then replace the original version of event with an alternative explanation which is far more implausible than the official one. And that makes sense to a lot of people....
