A young person named K. asks Yahoo, How do I go about writing a research paper on the JFK assassination?
Here’s my answer:
I think you should review all the evidence you can and then decide which alternative you believe more: that one man alone and unaided killed President Kennedy or whether more people were involved.
Beware of people who say that there is a simple and obvious answer to this question.
Before deciding which paper you want to write, consult the best online sources on the subject.
Take look at the “Starting Points” on maryferrell.org. This site has the most comprehensive collection of JFK records on the Internet. This site is skeptical of the theory that Lee Oswald acted alone and has plenty of evidence to back it up.
Then take a look at the JFK Assassination Home Page. This site argues that Oswald did act alone.
How can you make sense of this debate and decide?
Take a look at whokilledJFK.org, a website created by history students at American University here in Washington. This site highlights the work of thoughtful college students who have addressed the same issue.
I am the moderator of a site called JFKFacts.org and would be glad to help you as you take on this challenging assignment.
