Today marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John Kennedy. Undoubtedly one of the darkest days of our national consciousness, the assassination of JFK remains a divisive issue that has sparked dozens of theories relating to exactly what happened. The Warren Commission determined that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone individual responsible. But of course, as we all know, this official version of events has been heavily disputed through the years and numerous conspiracy theories have emerged: multiple gunmen shooting from the grassy knoll, the mafia, the KGB, Lyndon Johnson, Texas Governor John Connally firing the fatal shot, William Greer, the limo driver, firing the fatal shot, or colluding with the assassins to slow the presidential motorcade to a crawl in order to give the assassins greater opportunity.

What exactly took place and who was behind the assassination we may never know for sure. Much of the speculation, and proposed evidence, centers around the fabled Zapruder film, which itself has become the subject of numerous conspiracy theories relating to its authenticity. Below are a variety of film clips which seek to shed light on the tragic events that occurred this day in Dallas, 1963. WARNING: CONTAINS GRAPHIC IMAGERY.

This film makes a case that the Zapruder Film, long held to be the key piece of evidence in the assassination, was altered and re-fabricated as a composite to obfuscate the truth.
