    I am not a conspiracy buff, I really am not, but I have always believed there was a conspiracy involving the Kennedy assassination. I was 9 years old at the time and remember the day clearly. I have always believed Kennedy was hit from both the back and front.

    Anyway, all this conspiracy talk about the Batman killings, I was reading articles about the Kennedy assassination and viewing old films on YouTube when I came across this video. I had never noticed this before, but it really does look like the limo driver shoots Kennedy at 0:27 seconds. Watch the video a few times closely and see what you think.

    You can see the limo driver raise his right arm, and then at the precise moment Kennedy is shot he immediately moves his hand forward, seems to bend forward and perhaps place the weapon under his seat. The weapon seems to have been held in his hand and shoots backward. Sounds incredible, but that is what it looks like to me. The timing is just too perfect.

    Maybe I should have posted this in the History forum, but it involves politics, and we are always discussing possible conspiracies here.

    What say ye?

    You are asking us to believe that the secret service agents in the car and on the ground, Jackie Kennedy, Gov. John Connally and dozens people lining the street did not see the gun or hear it go off. In short, it's a crazy idea.

    That's because they were all part of the conspiracy... You just don't understand how powerful the illuminati or the mob or the right wing conspiracies or the communists or maybe all of them combined really are. :tongue3: :BangHead:

    No, I don't expect you to believe that, I find this unbelievable myself. I am just saying that it looks like the driver shot him. The man may have been speaking on a radio. The timing is remarkable though.

    Actually, I saw a very good documentary years ago that showed it was very possible Kennedy was shot from the front by someone in a drain alongside the street. They showed where a man could stand inside this drain with a rifle and have a perfect view of Kennedy. They could pull off the shot, and walk approximately two blocks through the sewer and come out in a drainage ditch. and easily get away. This was a serious documentary, and very convincing.

    I do believe Oswald struck Kennedy in the back, but I believe the fatal shot came from the front.

    I have always believed the shooter on the grassy knoll theory.

    I didn't want to say it, but that book probably says what I didn't want to say.....

    I saw another show that had the lead surgeon when Oswald was shot two days later, he received a phone call from LBJ while Oswald was in surgery. LBJ said he wanted an autopsy report for Oswald on his desk in the morning. The surgeon explained that Oswald was in very critical condition, but was not dead, and they were doing everything they could to save him. Again, LBJ repeated he expected an autopsy report on Oswald on his desk in the morning. The reporter doing this interview asked the doctor (I can't remember his name now) what he thought LBJ was saying to him, the doctor responded that he felt LBJ EXPECTED (or else) Oswald to be dead in the morning.

    The doctor said they continued to try to save Oswald, but he died from his injuries.

    Lots of folks think LBJ was behind the assassination.

    Limiting this thread (at least for now) to your idea... there is no chance it happened that way and everyone who knew it, or even suspected it, could have stayed quiet and gotten this past both the Warren Commission the the later House Select Committee on Assassinations. If you disbelieve the former-- okay. But the latter was formed with the very purpose of 'proving' a conspiracy, which it failed to do.

    I am not saying it happened this way, I do not believe the driver shot Kennedy. But there are many who do believe this, there were many witnesses who reported the driver had a gun in his hand. This is fact you can look up easily.

    I had never seen this film, or at least I never watched the driver before, and simply thought that it looks like he shot him. I believe it is an optical illusion.

    I personally believe JFK was shot from the front from the drain as the show I saw about 10 years ago. It was the perfect position for the shot and allowed an easy getaway.

    However, as I said, that committee was predisposed to proving a conspiracy, and it failed to do so. The best it could do in that way-- terms like ..."failed to competently..."-- is nothing but subjective.

    Since the popular conspiracy theories state that Presidents who are shot stepped on the toes of the real powers that be, I was just wondering what Truman, Ford, Teddy Roosevelt, and Reagan did, and for that matter, Lincoln, Garfield, and McKinley?
