Kennedy assassination

| Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2014, 9:01 p.m.

I believe the CIA eventually will admit to killing President John F. Kennedy, who the agency feared. The CIA didn't like what Kennedy was doing, so it killed him.

I do not believe the official story of what happened that day in Texas — that a lone gunman, almost 100 yards away with a cheap rifle, could so accurately shoot a moving target twice. Like Lee Harvey Oswald, I was trained to shoot in the Marine Corps, and no one was trained so well as to hit a target like that. I also don't believe the “magic bullet” that supposedly struck both the president and Texas Gov. John Connally.

As citizens of this great country, we have to realize there is always more than meets the eye, especially when it comes to our politicians. Our government will lie to us in a heartbeat. We have to figure out what is the truth and what is not. Maybe before Election Day, we'll study the men and women trying to be our leaders and find out who they really are and what they are all about.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
