On November 22, 1963, President John Kennedy was murdered in front of hundreds of people in Dealey Plaza. Ed Hoffman saw the man who fired the fatal shot that killed the President — and it was not Lee Harvey Oswald. His eyewitness account destroys the government’s version of a lone gunman shooting from the Texas School Book Depository

Ed Hoffman is a most important eyewitness in the murder of President Kennedy. He should have been embraced for coming forward but instead was crucified by the electronic and print media. He is the only witness who can “speak” to the fundamental events of November 22, 1963. The conspirators were hoping that no one would see the activity behind the picket fence, but someone did. The irony is that the only eyewitness to their activity that afternoon has a hearing disability. In 1989, Jim Marrs wrote,

Why seek the truth about President Kennedy’s death? The answer is simple. Unless we, as a nation, come to a truthful understanding of what happened to our chief elected official in 1963, we obviously cannot begin to correctly understand the events that are affecting us today.
