2003 – 2 hours 50 minutes.  What’s at stake is our trust in a coherent reality. That day in Dallas changed the way we think about the world. Powerful events build their own networks of chaos and ambiguity and the assassination of the president has become a landmark in the history of such events. The physical evidence contradicts itself, the eyewitness accounts do not coincide, there are failures of memory, there are conflicting memories. For 40 years, responsible people have disagreed over the number of gunmen, the number of shots, the origin of the shots, the time span between shots, the paths the bullets took, the number of wounds on the president’s body, the size and shape of the wounds, and many other crucial details of the basic investigation.

FRONTLINE’s investigation examines the life and enduring mysteries of Oswald. What makes Oswald so puzzling is that by Nov. 22, 1963, he had apparent links with virtually every group that had a strong motive to eliminate President Kennedy, says William Cran, the documentary’s senior producer. The big question is: Were any of those groups controlling Oswald on the day of the assassination or was he simply in the grip of his own personal confusion – the eccentric mix of political passions and emotional instability that characterized his entire life?

The result of a year-long investigation by more than a dozen reporters and expert consultants, Who Was Lee Harvey Oswald? draws upon hundreds of witnesses, in particular those who closely studied and observed him, as well as documents, photos, and video and audio recordings – many of which had never before been made public – to chronicle Oswald’s life story: from his troubled childhood to his mysterious service in the U.S. Marines that raised questions about his possible connections to U.S. military intelligence.

The program also investigates Oswald’s activities in the late 1950s and early 1960s, including his dramatic defection to the Soviet Union in 1959 and his return to the United States in 1962.

    How is it a failure? The global drug trade is more profitable than ever. It provides employment to thousands of lawyers, judges, prison guards and stupid thug cops who would otherwise never find a job. It’s only a failure for the other 99% who have to pay for it and get caught and chewed up in it. It was never intended to reduce drug use, just the opposite.

    I wrote a research paper in macro economics proving the legitamacy of profits over 25 years ago. It recieved the highest score in the class and the highest score in the school’s history for that assignment. My step mother was right,,, I am 25 years ahead of my time.

    I think this movie is a scam. The facts are that the US could have easily stopped the cocaine trade in Columbia by monitoring the handful of corporations that produced the chemicals used in the process, but conveniently the law only allows these corporations to be checked once, and from then on they can sell as many chemicals to drug cartels as they want. Another fact is that the US troops who became addicted to heroine in Korea were using drugs provided by their own government. All of this information is readily available in refereed articles in any Western university. It is also interesting to see Carter putting his two cents in because he personally used cocaine. Add to this that the Taliban totally destroyed nearly all poppy growth in Afghanistan prior to the most recent US invasion, only retaining a small amount for medicinal use, and the US invasion was what saw the the heroine trade once again flourish. Having said this I find it ludicrous that people are put in jail for smoking marijuana when it is a known medical fact that it has incredible medicinal properties, and after 90 years of prohibition there is still no concrete proof that marijuana causes any danger to its users. Keep in mind that cigarettes are now known to cause cancer, and alcohol is a major concern in respect to domestic violence. For those advocates that scream that marijuana is a gateway drug it should be noted that before people use pot they use cigarettes and alcohol, yet these are legal drugs that the government makes a fortune from in taxes. Another little fact that is being kept quiet is that the CIA, MI5 and MI6 are all involved in drug trafficking to fund their black ops, so they can place their puppet governments in countries to install the International Monetary Fund, which is simply a means of enslaving people through debt slavery. Wake up people, the real criminals are the ones who are running our countries and the people who serve them! The world is run by a crime syndicate and this is why things never get any better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
