Nov. 22 of this year marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. It is every year since that date of that awful tragedy that we pay remembrance to our fallen leader, the strongest leader from the strongest country in the free world.
In the 888-page Warren Commission Report, this tragedy came to a closure. Or so we were told at the time.
In 1979, the House Select Committee reported that a conspiracy existed in the plot to assassinate JFK. A Gallup Poll taken in 2003 showed that between 68-83 percent, or roughly three quarters of Americans, believe in an assassination conspiracy.
On this 50th anniversary of the assassination, 59 percent believe there was a conspiracy to kill the President, according to the Associate Press' April poll.
The government has sealed documents, 51 alone on Lee Harvey Oswald. Sealed after the Commission report, the reports contain what the CIA and FBI knew at the time of the assassination. These reports were to be opened in 70 years, in the year 2038.
In this, the 21st Century, the age of DNA, in which we can convict and/or free a person due to DNA testing, years later, and in an age in which technology can find a pin on the ground from a satellite, we can not solve this 50-year-old "mystery"?
