Killing Lincoln

America has had it's share of conspiracies over the years, and no place do those conspiracies turn up more often than in politics. Assassinations, particularly of political leaders often appear to be random acts of crazy people, even manical people who "snap" and decide to attempt an assassination on a high ranking person, typically a politician, often a president.

For example, do you know why John Wilkes Booth shot President Lincoln? Do you know that he didn't act alone, that he had the support of others? 

It seems to me that seemingly random acts, such as the assassination of Lincoln, and of others, like John F Kennedy, are anything but random. In fact they are calculated, planned, and well organized events.

Have a read of Killing Lincoln by Bill O'Reilly and see why that particular assassination was the one that shocked a nation and changed America forever.
