JFK Assassination Revisited

Always another theory, right? Well, new bullet anaylsis research is saying that the lone gunman theory in the JFK Assassination could be flawed. The crux of the new information is that:
Official investigations during the 1960s concluded that Kennedy was hit by two bullets fired by Lee Harvey Oswald.

But the researchers, including former FBI lab metallurgist William Tobin, said new chemical and statistical analyses of bullets from the same batch used by Oswald suggest that more than two bullets could have struck the president.

As a note, the scientists aren't saying that it couldn't be right - merely that it could NOT be correct:
"This finding means that the bullet fragments from the assassination that match could have come from three or more separate bullets," the researchers said. "If the assassination fragments are derived from three or more separate bullets, then a second assassin is likely," the researchers said. If the five fragments came from three or more bullets, that would mean a second gunman's bullet would have had to strike the president, the researchers explained.

As a note - I linked two different articles on this subject for you. So what do all of you think? Was there there a conspiracy or did Oswald act alone?
