50 Years Later, Doubts Still Linger Over the Kennedy Assassination
John F. Kennedy was one of the most popular US presidents in history. He steered the US economy successfully and his foreign relations policies promoted world peace. In fact, many historians remember Kennedy as the president who prevented World War 3 through his careful handling of the Cuban Missile Crisis. Unfortunately, a sniper assassinated Kennedy on November 22, 1963. The president was riding in a convertible with an open top when the fatal bullets tore through his body. Investigations into the Kennedy assassination started immediately. Several investigative teams determined that the sniper, Lee Harvey Oswald, acted alone. However, new evidence seems to suggest that Oswald had an accomplice.
The source of this new information is a book written by Robert K. Wilcox. The name of the book is ‘Target: J.F.K., The Spy Who Killed Kennedy?’ Regnery History released it for sale on November 14, 2016, almost 50 years after the assassination. The book focuses on Douglas DeWitt Bazata who was a spy during the Cold War era. Bazata wrote secret diaries throughout his life. The Kennedy assassination was one of the major events included in his diaries. More specifically, he claims that Oswald did not act alone. Instead, he states that Oswald worked with one René Alexander Dussaq. Bazata claims that Dussaq was a principal organizer of the assassination. It is important to note that Dussaq was also a spy in addition to being close friends with Bazata.
The information in this book seems to contradict what the official narrative is regarding Kennedy’s death. More specifically, the Warren Commission, established in 1964 to investigate the president’s demise, concluded that Oswald acted alone. Additional investigations in 1968, 1975, and 1978-9 supported the Warren report. The official storyline at the time was that Oswald struck Kennedy with two bullets from behind. However, some people did not buy it. For example, a Select Committee dealing with assassinations concluded that the presence of a second gunman was highly probable. A group of secret service agents and historians rejected this conclusion in 1983. Instead, they sided with those who supported the official narrative.
Doubts still linger because Lee Harvey Oswald never got a chance to present his side of the story before a court of law. Instead, he also died from a bullet wound, as did John F. Kennedy. Jacky Ruby, a nightclub owner in Dallas at the time, shot Oswald as the police were transferring him from the Dallas Police Station to a county jail. Oswald was the only person who could have confirmed or denied these claims by Douglas DeWitt Bazata, but he died on November 24, 1963. That was less than two days after he had assassinated John F. Kennedy. Oswald had also killed a Dallas Police Officer, J.D. Tippit. Tippit was pursuing Oswald for his role in the Kennedy assassination when Oswald opened fire and shot him.
