Video Game Lets Players Assasinate JFK

quote:
A video game allows you to go back in time to Dallas, Texas in 1963.

You are the lone gunman, and from the window of the school book depository, there is a clear view of President John F. Kennedy's motorcade, ABC reported.

After shots are fired, you can then review your handiwork from several different vantage points. There is even detailed ballistics analysis, ABC reported.

The game was released today, which is also the anniversary of JFKs assassination. The designers of the game say it will help to disprove the conspiracy theorists once and for all and show that it would have been fairly easy for Lee Harvey Oswald, ABC reported.

According to The New York Post, the designers wrote Sen. Ted Kennedy, of Massachusetts, saying they meant no disrespect, but the senator calls the game despicable.

Damn, I thought you meant the Lone Gunmen from the X-files. I was outraged when they were killed off [if it was not actually a coverup].

What do you bet Bush asks Santa to give him the game for Christmas?

Why not? His daddy helped get Kennedy shot in the first place.

Are you talking about Bush1? If so what did he do to help get Kennedy shot? Remember that PRescott Bush had chosen not to run again in the '62 race and Bush 1 was still 1 year away from his first unsuccessful attept at politics.

Bush involved in the assanation is a rumour i have never heard before.

Any chance you could expand on that libel a little, SLB? That's a pretty big accusation to make sans proof.

for what it's worth, though it looks conspiracy-theory-ish, this might be what SLB is referring to.

I heard about this. Some people might think it's in bad taste, but surely it's not as bad as this...
