Americans Are So Forgetful
“Why must everything that happens be interpreted through a filter, or viewed through a lens, of presumed political intent?”
The ‘JFK Act of 1992′ required all government agencies to search for any and all records in their possession concerning the assassination and put them in the National Archives. Once these records were released to the public, what we got were hundreds of pages of blacked out lines with only a few adverbs on each page legible.
Conspiracy theories around the JFK assassination began within days of the shooting, with just more than half the people polled professing their belief that there was more than one shooter. A year later, after the rease of the Warren Commission report, 87% polled said they believed the official story that Oswald acted alone.
It wasn’t until the early 1970’s that the American people were able to view the first broadcast of the Zapruder film. This film strongly suggested the probability that there was more than one shooter involved in the assassination.
It is very likely that the films release was intended to distract the American people away from the ongoing media circus surrounding the Watergate scandal. Polls(Gallup) at the time recorded a complete reversal from earlier polls, now stating that 81% of the population believed there was a cover-up.
The JFK assassinatin, the RFK assassination, the sinking of the U.S.S. Liberty, the Watergate Scandal, the Iran-Contra Scandal, the Lewinsky affair, Operation Iraqi Freedom…….The death of Osama Bin Laden?
Does that answer the question?
