In US history we were told that the President was shot at Ford's Theater by John Wilkes Booth. He shot the President with a handgun and then escaped from the the scene of the crime. He was later caught and in a gun battle with authorities, he got fatally wounded but was able to proudly confess that what he did, he did for his country. Several witnesses heard his confession. The rest is history. In a possibly similar way, John F. Kennedy was shot by, at least one gunman, but before the shooter was able to confess to solely killing Kennedy, or if he was a "patsy", or if he even shot the fatal bullet, he too was gunned down. Today conspiracy theories abound. What if John Wilkes Booth was not captured. Or what if he died eluding the authorities and never had a chance to give a confession. What if Booth was captured but never confessed. Would conspiracy theories abound and what would they say? Thoughts?
