The assassination of John F. Kennedy is one of the most debated topics in American History. JFK was one of the best presidents that the United States has had.

There is some medical evidence like the autopsy that could prove for it to be lone assassin by showing an exit wound out the front of the head. But a lot of people say that those photos are photo shopped and made to look like it came from the back of the head. I agree that they were most likely photo...
