about

On November 29, 1963, one week after the JFK assassination, Lyndon Johnson appointed a bipartisan "blue ribbon" panel to investigate the killing. The goal of the Warren Commission, named after its chair, Chief Justice Earl Warren, was to establish the official explanation of the JFK assassination. In their final report, delivered to Lyndon Johnson in September, 1964, the Warren Commission found that Lee Harvey Oswald had acted alone in killing John F. Kennedy, and that Jack Ruby had acted alone in killing Lee Harvey Oswald. Rather than convincing the public of these conclusions, however, opinion polls have consistently shown that a majority of Americans believe that some sort of conspiracy was at work in the JFK assassination.

Events in the decade that followed--the assassinations of Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, the war in Vietnam, the Watergate scandal--only added to the growing sense of unease and the belief that institutions could no longer be trusted. The Omecs voice this insecurity ("But I don't know why/Can you tell me why?") and lack of faith in the institutions that are supposed to be protecting us ("Because the FBI/You know they lied/And the CIA/You know I'm right"). The deaths of progressive leaders, JFK, RFK and MLK, were all explained as the work of "lone not" assassins, but the issue remains unresolved in the minds of many, if not most, Americans.



Deep in the South
1963
Shot in the head
Don't make sense to me

Because the FBI
You know they lied
And the CIA
You know I'm right
But I don't know why
Can you tell me why?

Martin Luther King
Marilyn Monroe
Was it anything
Do you know?

And Brother Bobby
He followed suit
Just a decent man
In a crowded room

And the FBI
You know they lied
And the CIA
You know I'm right
But I don't know why
Can you tell me why?

Martin Luther King
Marilyn Monroe
Was it anything
I just don't know
