Nearly 60 years ago, just after noon, the US lost a critical figurehead in the Cold War against the Soviet Union. Condolences came pouring in from all parts of the world as soon as the news got out that US President John F. Kennedy had been assassinated. Click here for a snippet.

With every public disclosure, we have seen shocking revelation after shocking revelation following the events of that day.

1. No Dismissals

The assassination of John F. Kennedy, the Commander-in-Chief of one of the most powerful countries in the world, was by all appearances a major intelligence failure. However, not one person from the FBI, CIA, President Kennedy’s security detail, or the Secret Service lost their job.

James Rowley, the Director of the Secret Service, retained his position until his retirement in 1973. Moreover, no one from the security detail escorting Kennedy on that last day was relieved of their duties. According to Rowley, everyone was fit for the job, but none came through when the President needed their protection.

2. Missed Barrel Swabs

When President Kennedy was assassinated, conducting barrel swabs was a standard procedure. However, the crime labs that received the alleged murder weapon failed to run this test and ignored many other scientific procedures that would’ve proven, beyond a reasonable doubt, whether or not the Mannlicher-Carcano rifle was used in the attack.

The FBI crime lab technician Robert A. Frazier, testifying in front of the Warren Committee, said they didn’t examine the weapon for metal fouling. The same was the curious case with the Dallas law enforcement crime lab. Most routine ballistics and biological tests were never conducted after this assassination, even though the alleged murder weapon was recovered almost immediately.

3. No Grand Jury

We will never stop finding it strange that a US President was murdered in the middle of a packed street, and no grand jury was gathered to investigate it. Grand juries are empaneled when there is an open homicide case at hand.

Not doing so and forming the highly dubious warren commission results sent a clear message: the government and intelligence don’t consider the JFK assassination an unsolved murder worthy of further investigation but an already solved murder with undefined motives. They were on a fact-finding mission and did not intend to find the real killer(s) and bring them to justice.
