Full article: House Select Committee on Assassinations

In the US, the House Select Committee on Assassinations concluded that John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King were both very likely assassinated as a result of a conspiracy, not by "lone nuts". The HSCA had "posed large problems for the Cabal", which they addressed partly through a policy of assassination.[1]
