"Withdrawal Only After Victory"

The Presidency Of

J.F.K.

1961--1963

     Very few things can be agreed upon in the studies and investigations into the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. There are hundreds of speculations, presumptions and theories concerning the motives behind assassinating the 35th President of the United States. During President Kennedy's administration, he was involved in a number of pressing issues that could have easily put his life at risk. The problems in Vietnam began long before and lasted long after Kennedy's presidency. However, what transpired during his term had a serious impact on years to come and many believe that it might also have played a part in his assassination. I argue that the belief of President Kennedy's death being attributed to his involvement, or lack of, in Vietnam is one conspiracy theory that can be dismissed. I found no credible evidence to suggest that President Kennedy had plans for a withdrawal of U.S. troops in Vietnam without or before victory. Therefore, there was no reason that the President might have been met with resistance from those supporting an escalation in Vietnam that could have been attributed to his death. This country wanted answers about Kennedy's assassination, and wanted someone to blame for the Vietnam War. I maintain that this is one conspiracy theory that can be ruled as unlikely.

     I plan to discuss the loyalty that existed within the Kennedy administration. I especially plan to focus on President Kennedy's actions and probable intentions in Vietnam during his term. I do not intend to discredit or tarnish the name of John F. Kennedy. My intentions are to prove that this particular theory about his death is one that can be eliminated.
