On the 54th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, many conspiracy theories remain active.

According to the most recent poll by Gallup, 61 percent of Americans believe others besides Lee Harvey Oswald were involved. However, as Gallup points  out, this percentage was the lowest found in nearly 50 years.

Unlike the conspiracy theories surrounding September 11th, the amount of video surrounding the tragedy is limited to a small number of sources, as personal video cameras were extremely rare in 1963.

Popular conspiracies include the CIA, as well as leaders such as Fidel Castro and Lyndon B. Johnson. What’s your stance on JFK’s assassination?
