However, what conspiracists will never acknowledge is not only that their ability to discuss the issues they raise are not being abridged but that their overall speculation has been debunked time and again. For example, in his book Voodoo Histories: The Role of Conspiracy in Shaping Modern History, author David Aaronovich gives an overview of the events that took place after the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Conspiracy theories began to swirl around JFK's death shortly after it took place. Two independent commissions, for example, formed to investigate Kennedy's death due to the doubts raised about the Warren Commission's findings.
In 2010 author Michael Shermer visited Dealey Plaza where the Kennedy shooting took place and interviewed several conspiracy theorists who were there giving informal tours before taking an actual tour of the area on his own. Ironically, Shermer was in Dallas filming a special for the Canadian Broadcast Company on the subject of conspiracy theories. One person he encountered alleged so many people were involved in John F. Kennedy's death that the perpetrators would have needed a facility the size of a small football field to plot killing the President. If one looks at the way Dealey Plaza is layed out, Michael Shermer says, the distance of the building and where Lee Harvey Oswald (who was a former Marine sharpshooter) positioned himself to carry out his heinous act, as well as the speed of which Kennedy's limousine (ten miles per hour), you can see that JFK didn't have a chance.
It should also be noted that on April 23rd 1962 seven months prior to killing Kennedy, Oswald sought to assassinate former Army Major General Edwin Walker who was a staunch, high profile, anti-Communist activist at the time. Because of Walker's activities, Oswald attempted to kill the General but was not prosecuted and set free for the attempt on Walker's life due to lack of evidence. There is no evidence of a second gunman having shot President Kennedy nor any other parties (such as the MAFIA) being involved in his assassination. Lee Harvey Oswald's wife, Marina, gave sworn testimony to the Warren Commission that Oswald was involved in the attempt on the life of Edwin Walker with the same Carcano rifle Lee Oswald used to assassinate Kennedy.
As to RFK, Jr.'s belief in a second gunman, it is a belief and nothing else. Like I stated earlier, none of the evidence points to a second gunman much less to other parties involved in the tragic death of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Any articulation to the contrary is nothing more than speculation and attempts at publicity depending on the extent to which the party attempts to highlight their hypothesis or claim. All the conspiracy theories surrounding President Kennedy's death are good for are to sell books and nothing else. In short, Earth to Representative Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.: Your uncle was assassinated on November 22, 1963 by a gunman named Lee Harvey Oswald who acted alone in the shooting.
