EDGEWATER -- With this being the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's assassination, everyone keeps asking: Who killed the president? Was it a lone gunman in Lee Harvey Oswald or as the conspiracy theories suggest, he had help? Did Lee Harvey cart alone? Did shots come from the grassy Knoll? There are many theories.
Well, here is my theory: In the 1960s, after JFK's assassination, The Vietnam war was being fought and the United States was bound to be on the losing end, many of our brave men and women were being killed Agent Orange [ a chemical to defoliate vegetation and trees] which also was harming our troops (after the war many soldiers died from Agent Orange). Well, the chemical companies were making millions and the suppliers of war materials also were making huge profits from the war and so were some politic figures.
Lets go back to 1960 and the race for the white house and the nomination for the presidency.
John F Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson both wanted to be president. So a deal was made, (Bobby Kennedy, his brother) and John F. Kennedy met with Johnson and offered him to be his running mate as Kennedy wanted Texas and its electoral votes on his side against Nixon, the Republican.
Kennedy, with Johnson as his vice presidential running mate, became the 35th president of the United States of America. Johnson and the Kennedy's actual hated each other. Johnson was always in the background. He wanted the presidency. The only way was to have it was to have Kennedy killed.
So Vice President Johnson and his friends who were making a killing with the Vietnam War and wanted to prolong it, so they came up with the idea to Assassinate the president. Where did it take place? Dallas, and LBJ's home turf. Who laid out the parade route? Texans, There was to be a bubble on the president's vehicle, but it was was taken off at the last minute.
The plan now was in place, it was just a matter of time. About 30 minutes later, the president of the United States, John F. Kennedy, had been shot and killed.
It didn't take long for Johnson to be sworn in as president with President Kennedy's body still warm in the casket and his wife with the blood of her slain husband standing by Johnson's side as he was sworn in as the new president. Mission accomplished.
This is my Theory.
