Curiosities

1. If the CIA did the Kennedy assassination, Lee Harvey Oswald, a guy with a background leading any rational person to conclude the CIA and FBI must have been keeping a close eye on him from 1959 onward, would have been the last person the CIA would have come up with to blame the assassination on to keep the public eye away from its role in the assassination. Rather, it would have been a heck of a lot more convenient for it to blame one of Oswald’s Black or Hispanic co-workers, as they would not have had anywhere near the illustrious background Oswald had.
2. The fact there is any doubt about the timing of the shots which wounded and killed John F. Kennedy is a sad testament of the state of technology in 1963. If Obama was assassinated by three gunshots today, there would be zero doubt about the timing of the shots which killed him, as everybody today has mobile devices with cameras and microphones. There were plenty of cameras covering the events at Dealey Plaza at 12:30 PM on November 22, 1963. There were zero microphones.
3. The whole pretext behind the 2003 Iraq attack was obviously self-contradictory. If Saddam really did have stockpiles of Weapons of Mass Destruction (much less nuclear weapons), there would be no conceivable way the war would be a success, as U.S. casualties would be massive. Everybody knows North Korea has stockpiles of WMDs. Yet, I’ve never heard any (serious) cheerleading for restarting the Korean War, precisely because of this fact!
