In solemn ceremonies across the country, Americans remembered the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's assassination. In the ensuing decades since November 22, 1963, a veritable cottage industry has emerged, dedicated to unraveling the mystery of what really happened in Dallas, Texas on that fateful day.
This collective inquiry has spawned thousands of books, numerous films and television specials, and pointed to dozens of potential suspects and scenarios that may have played a part in JFK's death. Over time, Americans have continually expressed doubt over the official version of events which claim that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone.
However, fifty years later, as the mainstream media revisits the tragedy to parrot the establishment line about a "lone gunman" and fresh revelations about Kennedy's assassination become more scant, it becomes increasingly apparent and troubling that the debate over who really killed JFK may now be forever linked to the more chilling and maddening question of "will we ever actually know?"
