The FBI concluded that he committed the crime on his own will without ties to any groups. However, not everyone believes what the FBI tells them. One of the more popular theories regarding the President’s assassination is that CIA had plotted to kill him. In an online article, “The CIA and the JFK Assassination” written by the Mary Ferrell Foundation, the author of the article discusses the theory of the CIA killing the President and how the evidence supports the theory. This conspiracy theory garners a specific audience as the text targets those who are in fear of national security, have beliefs in Christianity, distrust the U.S. government, interested in socially significant events, and value knowing the truth.
