    Lee Harvey Oswald never did explain his motives, but he lived in Russia and married Marina there. Most likely, JFK was being too tough on Communists to suit LHO!

    Because he knew too much.

    because he was not anti-Communist enough and wanted to decline illegal and aggressive actions of CIA, FBI, Exile Cubans and fought the Mafia and wanted to cut CIA into pieces.

    He publicly stated he and his brother RFK, the Attorney General, were going to bring down the mob. JFK was the first President to publicly acknowledge there was a mafia/mob. A couple years after JFK's assassination a mob boss was overheard saying we killed the wrong Kennedy... then in 1968 RFK was assassinated.

    It was hot that day in Dallas. According to Robert Anton Wilson, the shot was fired from the Grassy Knoll by the fifth Dillinger quintuplet wearing a gorilla suit and carrying an umbrella. Perhaps the heat got to him, or perhaps the sweat in his eyes made him miss his REAL target.

    We don't know.  Lee Harvey Oswald, the guy who killed Kennedy, left no manifesto explaining his actions, and he was killed after only a few days, meaning that he didn't admit to the killing or tell authorities why he did it. 

    A lot of speculation has centered on Oswald's psychology.  He clearly wanted to be a big important man.  In the late 50s he defected to the Soviet Union, but was given a menial job there.  When he returned to the US a few years later he was sure he would be infamous, but no one seemed to care.  Killing JFK may have been about the glory of it. 

    But we shouldn't overlook the political aspects.  Oswald was a committed Communist.  And he had come to have especial sympathy with the Castro regime in Cuba.  Despite the peacenik reputation which developed around JFK after he died, Kennedy was a devoted Cold Warrior.  He had brough the US to the brink of nuclear war over missiles in Cuba and had tried to overthrow or assassinate Castro several times.  To a Communist like Oswald, Kennedy was the enemy.  He could easily have killed him for political reasons.  Earlier in the year, Oswald had tried to assassinate Edwin Walker, a retired General turned right wing political activist.

    There were several reasons.

    1) He was a Democrat who stepped on the toes of the Democratic party.

    2) He and his Attorney General brother Bobby were going after organized crime.

    3) He stood up to the Soviets on the Cuban Missile Crisis issue.

    4) One belief is that he tried to take the power of the Federal Reserve away and give it to the Treasury, and EO 1110 talks about a temporary issuance of Silver Certificates as part of a transition period of switching from silver-backed currency to Federal Reserve Notes.

    While EO 1110 does support the Silver Certificate issue, there seems to be a little more to it than what's on the surface - why does one authorize the issuance of Silver Certificates if the country is about to go off the silver standard, anyway?

    And if this is the case, why make plans to re-issue the large "cartwheel" 90% silver dollars that were discontinued in 1935? This is the part that really doesn't make sense. Production of the silver dollars had already started at the Denver mint several hundred had been struck with the old Peace design and dated 1964 - which were subsequently destroyed. There is a debate in some circles whether or not a few escaped and are privately-held. If there is, they will never surface, since owning one would be illegal.

    5) Kennedy also exposed Zionism and other "secret societies". Of all the reasons, this would have been the most likely to explain his assassination.

    6) Being President, he thought he actually wielded the power to get things done. The powers that be (see #5) let him know who was really in charge.
