Unanswered Questions about the Lincoln Assassination

Post by Winston » November 23rd, 2012, 6:15 pm

I've watched a few documentaries about the Lincoln Assassination. But none of them answer some simple questions.

1. Why did John Wilkes Booth shoot Lincoln in the back of the head and then jump down onto the stage and break his leg and expose himself in full view of everyone in the theatre? Why didn't he just go out the back the way he came and escape that way? Then no one would know to look for him and he would not have broken his leg. This seems illogical and has never been explained as far as I can find in my research. Why has no one even addressed this?

2. Why didn't Lincoln have any security guarding him? Wouldn't it be common sense to protect the President? If the government wouldn't give him any security guards, then why didn't he just hire some? Otherwise, any random person could just walk up to the President of the United States and shoot him? That seems to defy common sense.

3. In the 19th Century, I read, US Presidents tended to walk around in public without guards like normal citizens. Is that really true? If so, then why didn't John Wilkes Booth just hide in the bushes or trees or rooftop and shoot Lincoln like a sniper when he walked around in public?

I assume that long distance shots were possible in the 19th Century, since a British marksman during the American Revolution in the 18th Century said that he could have picked off George Washington with his rifle from the bushes but chose not to for some reason.

Miles Mathis presents a lot of weird anomalies and evidence suggesting that the Lincoln assassination may have been a hoax. That may sound ridiculous, but when you see all his evidence below, you may start to wonder if it could be true after all. As they say, truth is stranger than fiction.
