IB Essay: JFK's Foreign Policy & the Assassination


Recommended Posts

I am an IB student, in yr 12 and for my examination I am to write an essay of 4000 words on a topic of my choice - I choose JFK's assassination.  The essay has to make use of sources for historical analysis and interpretation (preferably reasonably recently released historical documents or perhaps interviewing an eyewitness or expert?) and the topic should focus on a fairly narrow area of the assassination so that I can focus, and keep to the word limit.  My problem is, I dont know what aspect of JFK's assassination I should focus on, so I was hoping that someone could give me some ideas??  I would greatly appreciate any help anyone could give me.

Thank you  :D

Simone hi. I think taking a close look at Jack Rubys movements over the W/E of the assassination, would make a great 4,000 words.If you would like me to go into more detail, please let me know. Anthony Summers is very comprehensive on this subject (The Kennedy Conspiracy).

I have always found that people are shocked to hear that Oswald was, according to the Warren Report, responsible for the attempted assassination of Major General Edwin Anderson Walker seven months before the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

If you are interested in learning more about this person's life just drop me an email.

The response by the US media, augmenting the cover-up.

No major US media outlet has delved beyond the Warren Commission lie that Lee H. Oswald acting alone killed JFK.

Good luck with the paper,

Dawn

You say you would like to interview “an eyewitness or expert”. We have plenty of experts who will help you once you get started. The following members are eyewitnesses to the events surrounding the JFK assassination.

I suspect there are others but they don’t post using their real names. It is possible they might contact you if they feel you are researching “in their area”. Take a look at these biographies and make a decision on what aspects of the case you want to research. Send me a PM if you want more help with this.

I have an angle that maybe you can pursue, using your interest in journalism. In the March 2, 1964 edition of Newsweek, it recounts that someone involved with the Dallas PD was selling copies of the backyard photos, which linked Oswald to the gun. It says that these photos were purchased by Gene Roberts of the Detroit Free Press, and that there was subsequently a lawsuit between the Free Press and Life Magazine, which had recently purchased the rights to the photos from Marina Oswald. Sure enough, vol. 22 of the Warren Report reflects that the Detroit Free Press published a backyard photo on Feb 17, beating Life to the streets by 4 days. The New york Times admitted as well that they received their photo from the Free Press, and not from anyone at Life.

So my angle is to contact Gene Roberts, who went on to become Managing Editor of the New York Times, and find out if he'll talk about the circumstances of his purchase of the photos. I'm almost positive he's still alive, as he only recently retired. Since the negative for this photo, called CE 133a, was never turned over to the Warren Commission, along with the negative of CE133c, it is quite possible that the person who sold the photos to Roberts had them as well. These negatives should be located and analyzed. A secondary question involving Roberts is if he or the Free Press were ever contacted by the HSCA, which presumably investigated the disappearance of the negatives, and should have determined whether or not the Free Press copy of the photo was a first generation copy.

Anybody interested in making the phone calls and writing an article can e-mail me for more background.

Hello,

I'd firstly like to thank you all for the help you have given me so far. Although I have not firmly decided on a topic, I am considering the question: “What evidence is there that JFK secretly changed his foreign policy after the Cuban Missile Crisis?”

I would greatly appreciate it if any of you had any information that you think would be relevant, if you could possibly suggest books, or links or other, I'd greatly appreciate it.

I'd also be interested if any of you had any information about how this linked to his death.

Thank you,

Simone

Good Day Dawn.... Actually, during the 2003 fortieth anniverary assassination programmings, one of the major media corporations clearly demonstrated that it solidly supported the CT.

I'll give you a couple hints.... A socialist, left-liberal-leaning government recently started "allowing" their citizens to view this corporation's broadcasts after not allowing it's citizen's to legally view the corporation's broadcasts since the corporation's inception.... In 2003 this CT-supporting media corporation was, and still is, by far, the highest-rated TV news corporation in the United States.

"The political left is, you know, they deal in symbols, rather than reality.

The general difference between conservatives and liberals is liberals like pretty pictures and conservatives like to build bridges that people can drive across.

Conservatives are indeed conservative because if the bridge falls down, people die.

Where as the liberals figure, 'Oh, we can always build a nice memorial to them and make people forget it happened and it was our fault.' They're very good at making people forget it was their fault, all right.

The CIA was gutted by people on the political left and far-left who don't like intelligence operations, and as a result of that, as an indirect result of that, we've lost 3,000 citizens last week."
