November 22, 1963 was just another Friday for 17-year-old Oliver Stone, then a student at The Hill School in suburban Philadelphia. Then, at 1:30 p.m. (12:30 p.m. CST), his life changed forever with the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas, Texas. "I took it like everyone else – shocked and horrified," Stone told Rolling Stone in a recent interview. "But I didn't realize all the implications. It was sold to us that Johnson was fulfilling Kennedy's mandates and there was no discontinuity. That's absolutely not true considering what I've learned since then." What follows are five cover-ups the director stumbled upon while researching JFK, his Oscar-winning 1991 film.
