Yep. The Ruby part is just way too coincidental, especially when coupled with his lame excuse.
JFK was reckless, with his bimbos and playboy behavior. He wasn't a terribly strong leader nor was he particularly intelligent; pretty much all he had was charisma and Daddy's money. It's not a stretch to think the CIA or the mafia or whoever really controls government in this country took him out of the equation. Look what happened under LBJ: welfare, entitlement...um, Vietnam.
Forget all the so-called "evidence" - I have never personally seen any of it, documents can be falsified, there are different accounts of what "really" happened, who was involved with who, etc etc etc. What we, the people sitting here at our computers 50 years later with no access to anything, do know is that Oswald was arrested for the assassination and Jack Ruby killed him while he was being escorted to jail by a number of police officers, and gave the reason that he wanted to spare Jackie the trauma of a trial. That right there is bull####, no two ways about it. It's plain and simple bull####, which tells me there is much much more to the story and it has been covered up.
I seem to remember reading that credible, real threats to our Presidents happen all the time - they only REALLY hit the news when they succeed or partially succeed.
Did John Hinckley Jr work alone? That one was close, and Reagan DID get shot.
How about Squeaky Fromme, or Sara Jane Moore? Did they act alone?
The guy who shot George Wallace had previously been thwarted trying to kill Nixon.
It's actually pretty easy to look up failed attempts if you're just looking at the high profile ones or the ones that made the news because they were so spectacularly stupid (like the different men who have opened fire at the White House over the years). But it's like that line in "Men in Black" where Tommy Lee Jones says
"There's always an Arquillian Battle Cruiser, or a Corillian Death Ray, or an intergalactic plague that is about to wipe out all life on this miserable little planet, and the only way these people can get on with their happy lives is that they DO NOT KNOW ABOUT IT! "
Assassination attempts happen all the time. From what I read, they're acting alone, because they're usually bat#### crazy when they do it.
Oh, I absolutely believe there are lone nuts out there. I just don't think Oswald was one of them.
The most successful criminals are the ones you never hear about...because they got away with it.
The Kennedys were all powerful, strong willed and do it my way men.
o and it was only a few hours after 9/11 the identities of the men were established.....
odd in a way that hours after the disappearing jet over South Asia/Vietnam, the authorities knew two passengers were holding stolen passports. and it was only a few hours after 9/11 the identities of the men were established.....
