VictimJorge Gaitan, leading presidential candidate - Date: April 9, 1948 - Place: Bogota, Colombia - BackgroundRoa from very large family, raised by single widowed mother. In and out of employment. Had been employed as "runner" by German Embassy in lead up to warBecame interested in occult about 18 months prior to assassination. Was seeing a German palm reader who encouraged him to join Rosicrucian organisation based in California (AMORC). Through this, practiced various rituals and self-hypnosis. Common-law wife left him because of changing personality. Had one child - The assassination:  Used a pistol acquired only a couple of days previously. Fired at close range as Gaitan left his office for lunch. Some thought there was an accomplice who appeared to be hiding something under a coat wrapped around his arm. This person was seen to encourage mob retribution before leaving the scene in a car. Roa was then beaten to death, age 26 - The aftermath: The streets of Bogota erupted int violence - a period now known as  El  Bogotazo (The Bogota Terror). The Government inquiry into the assassination found Roa acted alone. Political and media uproar caused the government to bring in a team from Scotland Yard to review the investigation. This review affirmed the original finding. Known CIA agent John Mepples Espirito, would later admit under interrogation in Cuba that he had arranged the assassination after Gaitan had refused bribes to go into exile.
Victim: Pakistan Prime Minister, Liaqat Ali Khan - Date: October 16, 1951 - Place: in a park in Rawalpindi, Pakistan - Background: Born in 1922, the son of an Afghan Chieftain, but served his brother who took that role upon the death of the father. Fought in the Afghan Tribal Wars of 1944-47 to restore the monarchy. Married with 2 sons - The assassination:  Liaqat, Pakistan's first Prime Minister, was shot as he was about to give an important speech. He died later in hospital. Saad Akbar was shot and killed on the spot. The most important prosecution witness was Mohammad Shah, the Sub-inspector of police who confessed to having killed the alleged assassin. Describing how he was seated at a distance of 13 yards from the assassin, it is safe to say that he was still at a distance of three to four yards as he searched for the source of the shots and Said Akbar fired the third shot. At that point, the sub-inspector brought out his revolver and fired five shots at Akbar to ensure his death. In his statement, Shah had conceded that there was great confusion and the whole crowd was immersed in chaos. It therefore remains at issue as to how Mohammad Shah managed to pave his way within seconds towards the alleged assassin - The aftermath: No motive was ever established and a government inquiry withheld information from public disclosure. Over time, Liaqat's legacy has been subject to revisionism and the man himself, subject to character assassination
VictimJohn Fittzgerald Kennedy - Date: November 22, 1963 - Place: Dallas, Texas, USA - Background: Oswald Was born in New Orleans 2 months after his father died. He had 2 older brothers with the oldest born during a previous marriage. His mother, Marguerite, married a  third time, but this, like her first marriage, ended in divorce after only 3 years.  As a result, Oswald had a series of carers and  series of homes across 3 states.  In New York, he was sent for psychiatric evaluation because of chronic truancy and was diagnosed as having a personality disorder.  Returning to New Orleans, he joined the Civil Air Patrol and then at age 17, joined the Marines, serving part of his time in South East Asia. Obtaining an early discharge under dubious circumstances, he traveled across Europe and entered the Soviet Union in October, 1959.  After an unsuccessful attempt to defect, he stayed in the country for over 2 years, living in Minsk and working in a radio  factory that had a history in military electronics. During this time, a CIA REDCAP agent was operating in Minsk but was eventually caught and executed. After this, Oswald started making plans on returning to the US, married and had a daughter.  Returning in June, 1962 with his family, Oswald became surrounded y White Russians with CIA ties, and eventually being befriended by a couple from the east with privileged backgrounds and family ties to intelligence. From January, 1963, Oswald's life seems to track alongside  senate investigations underway, operations against FPCC and new mail laws on subversive materials. Via serendipitous avenues, he obtained the job in the Texas School Book Depository, starting on Oct 16, 1963 - The aftermath: Oswald was shot and killed two days after the assassination while being transferred to the County Jail. His own murder was captured live on TV. A subsequent Presidential Commission found that Oswald had acted alone, but deep suspicion from critics of the commission saw the issue of conspiracy remain on the table to this day. The assassination and what many see as a cover-up of the actual facts, can be seen in hindsight as the starting point for an erosion of trust in government that only grew more pronounced with each new assassination and political intrigue.
