On November 24, 1963, when Jack Ruby gunned down Lee Harvey Oswald in the basement of the Dallas police station he lit the fuse of what became fifty years of controversy. Had a jury convicted Oswald for the murder of President Kennedy in a legal proceeding…
Ever since the assassination, speculation about the true nature of the crime has been the subject of endless documentaries, books and even independent investigations.
It was recently suggested by way of a TV documentary, that William Greer, a Secret Service agent, located in a vehicle behind the Kennedy car, may have fired the ‘real’ fatal shot that caused the JFK ‘assassination’. Perhaps while responding to initial gunfire from the book depository, he reached for his weapon, accidentally engaged it and then shot the President.
A publication, JFK Lancer reports that William ‘Bill’ Greer was not a skilled agent. With a 10th grade education, he was a chauffeur who was given a uniform and spent his days patrolling the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. Later he became Mrs Eisenhower’s primary driver at the White house. According to the site, he became JFK’s driver after the 1960 election through simple seniority. He was not specifically assigned a protection role and was merely a driver.
NY Daily News reported recently that 25% of American’s believe the original version of events, that Lee Harvey Oswald was the man responsible.
There is also a conspiracy theory regarding Russia and the KGB.
JFK successfully called Russia’s bluff during the Bay of Pigs Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962, giving the KGB a motive to want him dead. Oswald’s married a Russian woman, had a supposed fascination with Russia – was he working for the KGB?
