I was in Mrs. Lind’s Spanish 1A class in my sophomore year in high school when all of a suddent the PA system went on, the speakers played the sound of a radio dial being zipped across the tuning span, and then a newscaster came on.
Of course, we all stopped talking and listened. The radio guy breathlessly stated, ‘The President has been shot. I repeat, President John Fitzgerald Kennedy has been shot. We have no idea how serious he is wounded yet, but his motorcade is now speeding to a local hospital in Dallas, Texas. Once again…....’
Some moments will never be forgotten by me, and that is one of them.
So, I am sure this thread has been pounded to near-death already, but it would be interesting to see what everyone thinks really happened, who did it, who was behind it, and why.
I personally agree with one prominent theory, that Lyndon Johnson was behind it. He had the motive, the opportunity, and the means. But, what the guy said who stated his reasons for the preceding, was that JFK was truly unqualified to be President, and was just too damn brash for his own good, and he would sooner or later get the world into thermo-nuclear war.
Thus, it was not that hard for LBJ to enlist the aid of all the various organizations that participated in the assasination.
