JFK assassination: Ten unanswered questions on the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's death
50-years on the American public remains unconvinced by the official explanation of what happened to President John F. Kennedy in Dallas 1963
On the fiftieth anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas the debate about the facts of his killing, the accuracy of the official record of what happened and the validity of the many and various conspiracy theories surrounding his death show no sign of abating.
Fifty years ago today this momentous political and historical event shocked America when during a trip to Texas the President was shot as his motorcade drove through Dealey Plaza.
The iconic images and footage of the incident, crucially the famous film shot by Abraham Zapruder with a home-movie camera, continue to be analysed by those dissatisfied with the conclusion of the Warren Commission that Kennedy was killed by a lone gunman who fired three shots.
Aside from the conspiracy theories a range of questions, in particular relating to the relationship the CIA and FBI may or may not have had with Lee Harvey Oswald remain unanswered.
There remain thousands of pages of documents relating to the investigation of Kennedy’s death that are off-limits to researchers.
Perhaps some of the puzzles surrounding Kennedy's death will be answered by the documents when they are finally released.
A review board is charged with releasing the records by 2017 unless it can be proven that doing so would prove a danger.
