Nov. 22, 1963, the day that former President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. Oct. 10, 2017, the day that the files related to JFK’s assassination will be released by the Trump administration, thousands of documents containing vital information on the assassin Lee Harvey Oswald and the events up to the time he pulled the trigger.
Leading up to this very day we have had to believe what the government has told us. All of the files that have been released previously have contained redacted information, now finally we are getting our hands on the very files that were used to accuse Lee Harvey Oswald of the assassination of JFK.
However, because people haven’t been able to get their hands on the documents, people have made conspiracy theories about how many shots were fired when JFK was assassinated, based on the film taken by Abraham Zapruder. That film suggests that one of the four shots fired came from an entirely different location than where Oswald was expected to be located. In 1979, the House Select Committee on Assassinations found that both the original FBI investigation and the Warren Commission Report to be seriously flawed. The HSCA also concluded that there were four shots fired. Lee Harvey Oswald the “killer”, had claimed that he worked for the CIA in Russia, which is another side of a conspiracy theory.
The JFK files were mandated to be released on October 26, 2017, in 1992. Trump tweeted out on Oct. 21, “Subject to receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long-blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened.” Then five days later he tweeted, “The long-anticipated release of the #JFKFiles will take place tomorrow. So interesting!”
The conspiracy theories will be confirmed or denied almost 50 years later. All of these conspiracy theories caused questioning in Washington for years and now they will finally have an answer.
