The official government investigations of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and the events of 9/11 are both countered by persistent conspiracy theories. Although the Warren Commission determined Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in the assassination of JFK, by 1973 81% of the American people doubted that conclusion. Over 50 years later, does it really matter who pulled the trigger, for whom, and why? Will the release of the remaining commission documents this fall provide new answers? More than half of Americans believe that the government knows more about the events of 9/11 than they are releasing. Since that date do we live in a surveillance state where the government knows our every move and conversation? Examine these tragedies by exploring the complex forces that were at work. Review a variety of data including film, acoustic, medical, ballistics, and other technical analyses of the available evidence and official reports. Students will be encouraged to share their own theories of the events of those fateful days. Guest speakers will include local reporters, an airline pilot, and a structural engineer.
