Who’s to Blame But the CIA?
The John F. Kennedy assassination was one of greatest tragadies the United States
has ever seen. After the assassination the media, police, and government rushed to the
quick and easy solution that a lone crazed gunman shot the President. However after
looking behind the cover-ups and secrecy there is only one answer, the CIA was involved
in the assassination of John F. Kennedy. This makes sense when you consider the
following facts. The Ex- head of the CIA (Allen Dulles) that was fired by John F.
Kennedy was in charge of the investigation into the Presidents death, the CIA
Organization could be preserved by the death of the President and finally Lee Harvey
Oswald who was the alleged assassin had ties to the CIA.
Allen Dulles was the head of the CIA until President Kennedy fired him for
deceiving the president about CIA operations. Dulles later became the most active
member of the Warren Commission involved in the investigation. Dulles had been fired
by Kennedy for lying and deceiving, he then is taken out of unemployment to investigate
the death of the man who had fired him. Dulles also played an active part in the Bay of
Pigs Invasion which Kennedy blamed the failure of on him.
In the Sixties the CIA was one of the most powerful organizations in America.
Kennedy set out to change that. It all started with the Bay of Pigs. Cuban nationalists
trained by the CIA were armed and sent into Cuba to take over Castro. This mission was
approved by President Kennedy. While the nationalists were invading Cuba air support
was to be provided by the U.S Army. At the last minute Kennedy pulled out the air
support which angered the CIA. The Bay of Pigs invasion failed. Kennedy blamed the
failure on the CIA. Kennedy then fired Dulles and vowed to break up the CIA’s power.
Lee Harvey Oswald is the person that the Warren Commission blames for the
killing of the President. Whether this statement is true or not true Oswald can be tied to
the CIA by more ways than one. Oswald gave up his United States citizenship and
Moved to Russia. In July of 1961, Oswald decided he wanted to return to the United
States. Reports on Oswald’s wish to return were sent to the CIA. There is no reason
why Oswald, someone who renounced his citizenship would be let back into the Untied
States. However Oswald was let back into the United States with no problems and with
full knowledge of the CIA. Oswald also made a purchase for the CIA to aid in the Bay of
By the death of Kennedy the CIA would be able to stay one organization without
being split up. Dulles had the power to cover-up CIA involvement by being a member of
the Warren Commission. Oswald, who the CIA had complete files on, could be easily set
up. The CIA was one of the most powerful organizations in the United States and used
their power to arrange the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
