The J.F.K. Assassination / Fact vs. Film Fantasy : 8 pages in length. An excellent resource for those studying forensics or criminal investigations. This paper analyzes the reliability of facts presented in Oliver Stone's movie JFK with respect to actual Warren Commission and House Select Committee reports. It is argued that the most logical assassin was indeed Lee Harvey Oswald and that Stone's movie is good for little more than imaginative historical fantasy. Bibliography lists 3 sources. Jfk.wps

John F. Kennedy Assassination / Forensics : An 8 page paper discussing facts of the assassination in relation to related findings of the Warren Commission that determined in 1964 that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone and fired one shot, the "magic bullet," that killed President Kennedy and severely wounded Governor John Connally. Many of the documents used by the Warren Commission were finally made public by the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992, and few of them support the conclusions of the Warren Commission based on forensic analysis. Bibliography lists 7 sources. Jfkfor.wps

Lee Harvey Oswald As A Sole Assassin : A 13 page paper that presents both sides of the case and dismisses the conspiracy theory for the following reasons: none of the conspiracy arguments match, they are disjointed and if true everyone in the CIA would have known about the "secret" plot to assassinate JFK; in contrast, the sole assassin theory is supported by evidence gathered by such diverse agents as CIA agents, lawyers, private investigators and Norman Mailer. In this theory, all the evidence matches, with each adding a little more insight into Oswald. Bibliography lists more than 10 sources. Lhoswald.wps

Lee Harvey Oswald -- A Victim As Seen In Don DeLillo’s/ "Libra" : 5 pages in length. Was Lee Harvey Oswald, assassin of President John F. Kennedy, a cold-blooded, calculating killer because he chose to be or because his mother raised him in a disturbed, manic environment? Clearly, Oswald was not one of the most stable person merely because he had the capacity to take the life of another human being. But is he truly guilty for his actions, or is his mother -- a disturbed person in her own right -- the one to blame for his ultimate indiscretions? The writer attempts to show that Oswald was, in fact, a victim of his abnormal upbringing, as well as a victim of a cold and heartless society. No additional sources cited. Libra.wps
