1964 Kennedy Assassination: Warren Commission Report Released

The aim of the report was to discover if the assassination of John F Kennedy, in 1963, had been as a result of a conspiracy, or if Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone gunman.

The investigation was headed by the highly respected Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren.

The report found that Lee Harvey Oswald, acting alone, shot 3 times from a window on the 6th floor of the School Book Depository in Dallas.

Oswald, the report concluded, was a Soviet sympathizer, although failed to find a motive for his attack.

The report was to be called into question by a subsequent investigation, The House Select Committee on Assassinations, which concluded that Kennedy was:

"probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy."

(This conclusion was reached, it has been suggested, by since debunked evidence based on audio tapes of the shooting.)

A whole publishing empire has been built up on this crime. theVoiceofReason.com's site conspiracyclinic.com has a list of the important points in dispute [here].
