Why was JFK assassinated
Truth is often stranger than fiction, and the assassination of John F. Kennedy underlines this saying like no other historical event. It took minutes for the world to plunge into a state of utter shock on November 22, 1963 when the unfortunate murder took place. The Dallas, Texas police caught hold of the alleged assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald. However, there was still another twist in the tale. While being transferred from one jail to another, the captive was himself laid to rest by one Jack Ruby; an emotionally distraught John F. Kennedy supporter.
The Warren Commissioned Report of 1964 concluded that Oswald was the lone hand behind the murder. However, the world has been introduced to many versions of what is actually still unknown as regards the assassination of John F. Kennedy. A set of politics experts attribute JFK’s inhibitions towards letting the United States participate in the Vietnam War as a reason that infuriated some prominent political stakeholders who subsequently planned his murder. Kennedy was of the view that the U.S. had no business interfering with the local upheavals of the Vietnam region.
Another very interesting theory talks about the President’s failure in helping the Cuban outcasts in their endeavours of doing away with the Communist government of Fidel Castro in Cuba. This happened two years before the tragic assassination, in the year 1961. The fury of the anti-Castro groups held no bounds when President John F. Kennedy did not push the destruction button for Cuba during the Cuban missile crisis of 1962, and it is believed by many to be the reason behind the planning of the assassination of JFK.
Robert Kennedy, the brother of JFK was hell bent at wiping out the influence of organized crime from the country. He wielded the sword on the Mafia during his tenure as the attorney general. Many investigators believe that eliminating the President was the Mafia’s solution to the survival problem. The fact that CIA was also associated with the Mafia at that time adds a good deal of substance to this theory.
