JFK: Some just can't the handle truth

Lindy McDowell

Fifty years on, the conspiracy theorists continue to have a field day over the question of who killed JFK (above). According to one report, a shooting reconstruction expert (who knew there was such a thing?) has found that yes, Lee Harvey Oswald did it. And yes, he was on his own. According to the expert: "Oswald just got lucky that day ... and the President got unlucky."

Will this finally convince the conspiracy community? Unlikely. The obsessives, who refuse to accept that sometimes the obvious and the logical really are the only explanation, don't do rational thought. Fifty years on, they still haven't identified who else might have been involved. But that doesn't shatter their absolute conviction that someone else HAD to be involved.
