Fascinating documentary about the assassination of President Kennedy
23 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Men Who Killed Kennedy" is a multipart documentary putting forth a conspiracy theory of the assassination of President Kennedy. Someone on this board wrote that the film "JFK" had an agenda. Well, so does this documentary.

Certainly it is intriguing to hear what all of the witnesses and investigators have to say, and gruesome to see, in close-up, the killing of the President. I was in high school when it occurred, and it was a shattering incident. As I've gotten older, it's become more devastating to think about.

As far as the theories put forth in this documentary, I can certainly believe there was a government cover-up, either to keep the country from totally going crazy after the assassination or just to keep certain covert operations from the public. I mean, if Enron could cause blackouts in California, I'd say the government can do just about anything it wants.

This documentary was done in 1988, and since then, some of the information has been debunked, so while it might seem that it's on sure footing, it isn't. I'm not sure I believe the enhanced photos of the Grassy Knoll showing various people; and I'm not sure the autopsy photos are fake. Everyone says the President's brain flew out of his head, and yet, when you look at the film of the assassination, the head looks intact. If the Warren Commission Report does say that a single bullet killed the President, I have to agree that can't possibly be, and I'll have to take this show's word for it that three shots can't be fired by one person in 7 seconds.

Even as a kid, I never believed that Jack Ruby just waltzed in and shot Lee Harvey Oswald - obviously Ruby had plenty of help, and it makes sense that no one wanted Oswald telling his story. Was Oswald a scapegoat? It's certainly likely.

Anyway, this is a thought-provoking documentary, but do some background reading about it to get some perspective. Will we ever know the true story of what happened that day in Dallas? Doubtful. And as with many events, stories are embellished and rumors become fact as the years go on.
