I was not even coming close to implying that one should be considered not guilty because they say they are framed. Don't twist my words.
I am just saying that the JFK assassination is far from a case closed proposition.
I think it's about as closed as it can be.
One telling factor against a conspiracy is that the "evidence" for it is all over the map. If you say that you believe that Hunt's "confession" was real evidence, then you must commit yourself to saying that THAT is what the conspiracy was. You must then discount any other people claiming, "No, Hunt had nothing to do with it, it was these other people who did it!" Both cannot logically be true, and if one set of evidence is false, then it does not mean that the other set is true. Both may be equally false.
The Onion once did a rather amusing report that it had been determined that every single person in Dealey Plaza had been shooting at JFK. Which, if you believe all the conspiracy theories at once, must have been pretty close to accurate.
A whole lot of bad evidence does not equal any amount of good evidence.
Personally, if I were to set up an assassination and needed a surreptitious second shooter, I'd make darn sure they were firing from the same direction as the first shooter. (Actually, I'd make sure I had a first shooter who could do the job, but perhaps I'm just better at this conspiracy stuff than "the powers that be".)
