The Umbrella Man And JFK Assassination

The New York Times first published a short documentary called The Umbrella Man. It says about a man who was holding an umbrella in Dallas, close to the spot where John F. Kennedy was shot.

Later on, the umbrella man, Louie Steven Witt, stated that he was holding the umbrella as a kind of visual protest to JFK father’s policies. Between 1938 to 1939, JFK’s father, Joseph P. Kennedy, was the ambassador to the UK. He was holding an umbrella as a kind of reference to the Neville Chamberlain. In the 1978 testimony, he had stated that he is not aware of the controversy that is going on around his rain gear. The umbrella was a medium to convey a message. He also stated that his action that day turned out to be a bad joke. But upon seeing the photos and film footage, his actions seem to deny his statement. So, the officials themselves interrupted the images. 

Know More

In one of the theory, you will read that the assassins wanted Kennedy to know the reason that would lead to his death. The umbrella was perhaps a symbol of Kennedy’s refusal to give a covering umbrella for the air support during the failure of the CIA’s Bay Of Pigs invasion of Cuba. This term is used extensively. Also, the significance related to this umbrella was immediately understood by Kennedy. In front of the congress, Mr. Witt was particularly asked whether the umbrella he was carrying had any other shooting mechanism or not. he denied the allegations and explained that he bought the same umbrella to the hearing that he carried on that day. The umbrella turned out to be an average black umbrella.

One of the congressman thought that Witt was cool. To this, Witt relied upon that he was not at all cool but Instead, it was one of these reactions that he was known with that is the umbrella and his eagerness to harshly question the president. The umbrella was just a visual protest of Kennedy’s father’s policy. He also added that if there was a category of a people doing the wrong things at the wrong time and place in the Guinness Book Of World Records then his name would top the list. Though this is an innocent explanation, it is indeed true.
