Many argue that we will never know the complete truth of what happened that day, and to an extent that is true. Peter Ling, author of the article “Killing Kennedy” argues that because of the ill performed and confused investigation of the assassination, too many details have been lost for us to ever find out the entire truth about the events that took place that day. There are others who believe that the evidence we already have is sufficient, even if some was muddled and lost.
