    Wait, all this time JFK gets the legendy status as a guy who cheats on his wife, but Jackie Kennedy might have been just as bad? I

    The prime minister of Israel authorized the killing of Kennedy before he reisgned as PM as JFK insisted on checking the Dimona nuclear plant to make sure the Israelis cannot produce nuclear weapons. Everyone except stupid Americans know this.

    Carlos Marcello, Sam giancana, and santo trafficante (mob bosses) killed him. Jack ruby grew up in Chicago and worked with the mob as a loan collector, it is also suspected that the mob funded his clubs in Dallas. Also Lee Harvey Oswald's uncle worked for Carlos Marcello! Santo, Sam, and Carlos ordered the hit because the csa plotted to have them kill Fidel Castro. It is a fact that santo trafficante had connections to the csa.

    "And it wouldn't actually be the first time an umbrella-gun has been used for assasination. Bulgarian dissident writer Georgi Markov was killed by one in 1978." So why not tell us about an earlier incident then and not something that happened 15 years after?

    It's simple, LHO shot the first two bullets cause he was a lone nutjob, who wanted JFK dead for reasons we'll never know cause he was assassinated himself, by a stupid fool who was upset & angry, before they could get any answers out of him, then one idiot SSA stood up in a moving car with the safety off his gun, the car lurched, the SSA accidentally fires his gun, which was the third & final, fatal shot that shattered JFK's head. With all the panicking going on, no one, not even the SSA, knew what had happened. There was/is no conspiracy; just human beings doing stupid things that ultimately led to tragedy, a tale as old as time.

    Kennedy is on the half dollar because he only has half a head.

    Another theory I have heard is that some of or one of the Generals has JFK killed because of how much he went against them. Ex: Cuban Missile Crisis.

    The car should be one of the secret service so that it could protect jfk

    The truth is out there. But, it is certainly not here. It is sad to see such nonsense when numerous credible sources agree on why JFK was killed, who killed him, and who was responsible for the cover up of the murder. "Everything is a Rich Man's Trick contains a lot of Truth". Jim Garrison's "On the trail of the Assassins" is full of facts concerning the assassination of JFK. McClellan's "Blood, Money, Power", Mark Lane's "Rush to Judgement", Jesse Ventura "They Killed our President", etc. etc. Allen Dulles, LBJ, Hoover, Nixon, Texas Oil, Ex-Patriot Cubans, Herbert Walker Bush, Phillip Atlee, Dallas Mayor Cabell, and the Mafia all played a role. The only conspiracy is that a lone nut did it by himself. How did Oswald land a part time job in the school book depository on JFK's parade route weeks before the route was even known? That's the CIA, babe!

    4:15 why does he sound like agent 47

    Personally I believe It was the CIA is Secret Service but we have no proof.

    Why? The President made a lot of people unhappy In the Military and CIA for years he botched up things In Vietnam bay of pigs and he wanted to share Infomation and expose 'X files' on various things. A lot of things the CIA wanted to keep secret JFK wanted to allow the public or at least some ordinary groups media etc to see.

    The CIA didn't like this and had him killed? A big concidence a guy called Ruby who was or had links to Mafia was out on death throw and was killed without much questioning could the CIA worked with big Mob bosses? And ordered to have him taken out by Mafia mercenaries?

    I know he displeased a lot of powerful people in the US Government at the time and he wanted to allow the public to see it here if things they wouldn't otherwise have known.

    I think he said somewhere he wanted aliens to be exposed or the X files surrounding them to be released. This would have reigned havoc on the US military and intelligence Agency's.

    It was the CIA, the Cubans, the mob, the Russians, the Secret Service, LBJ, and the Girl Scouts. Exactly 666 rounds were fired.

    Tbh, the Umbrella man theory isn't actually as stupid as some people think. Not saying that the Umbrella man killed JFK, but he could've been part of a conspiracy in which he gave a signal, so......

    It's no coincidence JFK was killed in LBJ's backyard.

  28. PS4 Gaming

    The umbrella man can be the signal for shooting JFK

    People make entire theories about just 1 piece of circumstantial evidence. But there’s a lot of pieces to put together here.
