I think it's pretty clear that there was a conspiracy to kill JFK.
Now, I'm not talking about an Oliver Stone-style conspiracy where the entire federal government from LBJ on down was involved. I'm just talking about a good, old-fashioned vanilla conspiracy, defined loosely as "the act of conspiring together", which means implies more than one. Specifically, I think it's pretty obvious that there was a second shooter, most likely on the Grassy Knoll.
My primary reason for this is that I find the "magic bullet" theory to be a ludicrous, childish fantasy, one that induces bellowing peals of laughter that threaten to wake my neighbors. Bullets do not perform U-turns and hang suspended in mid-air. Yes, I am aware that analyses have been done to demonstrate that it is at least theoretically possible for the "magic bullet" to do what the Warren Commission said it did. But watching Kennedy's head snap backwards in that graphic Zapruder video leaves me wondering how any sane person can claim that the final head shot came from anywhere but in front of the motorcade.
Plenty of witnesses claim to have heard shots from the Grass Knoll. A woman named Mary Moorman took a famous photograph at the moment of the head shot that M.I.T. experts concluded that "without question" depicted a man firing a gun. We are meant to believe that Oswald's best shot is his final (third) shot, after he had already fired two .. seems that the first shot should have been the most accurate. But no .. it was the third and final shot, the one with the least preparation time, the one through foliage, that managed to be perfect.
Now, I'm not a conspiracy nut. I don't spend a lot of time researching this stuff. I just don't buy the official Warren Commission story. For what it's worth, neither did the United States House of Representatives Select Committee on Assassinations, who in 1979 stated:
The Committee believes, on the basis of the evidence available to it, that president John F. Kennedy was probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy. The committee is unable to identify the other gunman or the extent of the conspiracy.
