Oswald was the lone gunman in the book depository. All the other gunmen/CIA agents/assassins were located elsewhere

The only one shooting bullets at JFK that day in Dallas was Oswald. Now, who put him up to it or was behind it...that's a different story. There was no "magic" bullet. There were 3 total shots. All came from the 6th floor of the book depository from Oswald's rifle. What he did, in the time he did it, has been replicated.

Oswald was originally arrested in a Dallas neighborhood for the shooting of police officer J.D. Tippit, based on eyewitness reports and bullet casings picked up at the scene which matched those in the gun found in Oswald's possession when he was arrested in a theater where he fled after the shooting. Only later did police realize he was also the man who shot Kennedy. Conspiracy theorists have never adequately explained for me why Oswald killed Tippit if he was innocent of Kennedy's assassination. As to whether others were involved, like Don I have no idea, but I have no doubt Oswald was the only one who shot Kennedy and Officer Tippit.

I think LHO should be the initials for Lee Harvey Oswald instead of LO since the answer has Harvey in it. I missed it and thinik I would have got it if the H had been there

The reason that we chose many of these answers is that they are less obscure to the average user than the alternatives. For example, Lance Ito. I know that non-U.S. users will probably not get that one. But there is no one else that I could choose who would be guessed more.

I really don't understand this common complaint. It is an American-based web site. If I was answering quizzes on say a French web site, I wouldn't be complaining that it was too French-centric! I feel like, for an American quiz website, the site maintainers do a pretty good job trying to make it diverse.

If you want an X you can add Liu Xiang. He is one of the most popular sports star in Chinese history and the first star to gather a significant fan following. He is the only man in history to have the triple crown of 110 m hurdling and his world record from 2004 is still unbeaten.

Technically, Lee Kuan Yew has the first name "Kuan Yew" with Family name Lee. If anything his initials would be LKY, not a letter less since "Kuan" is the beginning of his first name, not his middle name. Saying this as a Singaporean...

maybe in the record books, but everyone knows he won 7 times. He may have been on performance enhancers, but so was EVERYBODY else.

Nice quiz.

The asterisk is after the first clue, not the last. Or maybe that was your far-too-clever way of doing things.
