Quoting Dtwclipper (Thread starter):
2. John F. Kennedy’s Assasination

I think this one has some legs and could be possible. There could have been more than one shooter if you believe the eyewitness reports:

Thirty-five witnesses who were present at the shooting thought that shots were fired from in front of the President — from the area of the Grassy Knoll or Triple Underpass — while 56 eyewitnesses thought the shots came from the Depository, or at least in that direction, behind the President, and 5 witnesses thought that the shots came from two directions. By another account[6], sixty-four of the known ninety witnesses indicated that the shots originated from ahead of the motorcade. This number represents nearly two-thirds of witnesses whose accounts appeared published in the Warren Report or contemporaneous news accounts.

Nellie Connally was sitting in the presidential car next to her husband, Governor John Connally. In her book From Love Field: Our Final Hours, Connally was adamant that her husband was hit by a bullet that was separate from the two that hit Kennedy.

Roy Kellerman, a U.S. Secret Service Agent, testified that, "Now, in the seconds that I talked just now, a flurry of shells come into the car." Kellerman said that he saw a 5-inch diameter hole in the back right-hand side of the President’s head.

Lee Bowers was operating a railroad interlocking tower, overlooking the parking lot just north of the grassy knoll and west of the Texas School Book Depository. He reported that he saw two men behind the picket fence at the top of the grassy knoll before the shooting. However, the men had moved in front of the fence by the time the motorcade went by and the shooting occurred.

Clint Hill, the Secret Service Agent who was sheltering the President with his body on the way to the hospital, described "The right rear portion of his head was missing. It was lying in the rear seat of the car." Later, to a National Geographic documentary film crew, he described the large defect in the skull as "gaping hole above his right ear, about the size of my palm."

Robert McClelland, a physician in the emergency room who observed the head wound, testified that the back right part of the head was blown out with posterior cerebral tissue and some of the cerebellar tissue was missing. The size of the back head wound, according to his description, indicated it was an exit wound, and that a second shooter from the front delivered the fatal head shot.

Ike Altgens, the AP photographer who snapped a famous photo of Kennedy reacting to the first bullet hit, was positioned on the south side of Elm Street across from the Grassy Knoll. According to Altgen, when the president's car was directly between him and the knoll, the fatal gunshot struck, "sending substance in my direction". In accordance with the laws of physics, Altgen's statement would indicate that the fatal shot was fired from the general vicinity around or behind the grassy knoll.

Pearl Harbor Was Allowed to Happen

I wouldn't call this a conspiracy theory. It counts as proven that one of the most important navy consultants did actually now of it, or was quite sure that it would happen.
If Roosevelt did exactly know what was going to happen, remains discussion.

I wouldn't really call it Conspiracy theory, but rather a still ongoing controversy



As you may presently yourself be fully made aware of, my grammar sucks.

Lady Di being murdered by the Royal Family is not bad either.

How about Saddam's so-called Weapons of Mass Destruction?
Could this qualify as a Conspiracy Theory?

It would be even more dangerous if it is not happening and is not man made due to the associated economic harm.

Not always. I live in Dallas and have seen most of the 'evidence' and talked to many of the people supporting the JFK theories.

Conspiracy theories are BIG BUSINESS - supporting million dollar incomes and many highend lifestyles.

Well they are all bollocks, even the 'acceptable face of conspiracy theory', JFK.
Note when that film came out in 1991, the director, the not all heavy drinking, grass chuffing, magic mushroom chomping Oliver Stone, claimed it was an accurate version.
Now? It's a 're-imaging'. A downgrade, not a 'Director's Cut'.

You have to just apply the 'Watergate Test'.
A tawdry, low rent, attempt at political espionage, as part of a general smear campaign, was exposed.
How many were in on it? Very few, unlike all these 'theories'.
But it still got exposed, by only a few (literally) people in the pre internet age.

So, here we have a REAL bit of plotting, but it's exposed and fells a President, less than two years after he won a landslide.
See where this is going, how the hell do these supposed HUGE plots...........?
Enough said.

Most cover ups by those in power, in democracies at least, are in fact panicked attempts to cover tracks and spin when a mistake is made.
What gets them is the attempt at deception, rarely the thing they were trying to avoid any scrutiny on.

Don't forget that a missle actually hit the Pentagon not an AA 757.  Yeah sure

It's really unfortunate that the security tapes at the pentagon only took pics every second or so.

Quoting MadameConcorde (Reply 17):
You are right. Big time conspiracy theory on TWA 800.

In that case you should give up flying, because that would requite the National Transportation Safety Board to have taken part in a massive plot.
Given the role they play in the safety of the world's airline fleet, logically you should avoid flying, since they are tainted.
Boeing too, as well as other safety agencies with an interest.

Of course, in my work I only encountered various mods and fixes to airliners, not just 747's but aging aircraft in general, as a result of the physical evidence of TWA800.
Indeed, it was part of the extra package of work that BA and AF were given for Concorde in early 2003, that $40 million extra that was a factor in it's retirement.
