ESL 160: JFK Assassination


ESL 160: JFK Assassination


Download


Every November 22, people worldwide remember and ponder the assassination in 1963 of President John F. Kennedy. He was sitting in the back seat of a convertible (the top was down) when bullets fired from a rifle tore into him and a fellow passenger.

The assassination was caught on 8mm film by Abraham Zapruder. Digital enhancement of that famous film shows part of Kennedy's skull getting blown off. JFK was barely alive as the convertible sped to the nearest hospital; he died shortly after arriving there. The damage to his brain was so great that even today's medical techniques couldn't have saved JFK.

Conspiracy theories have persisted since the time of the assassination: the Mafia did it, the Teamsters did it, the CIA/FBI/Secret Service did it, Congress did it, the Federal Reserve did it, LBJ (the vice president) did it, the Communists did it, the Cubans who hated Castro did it, and the two guys behind the grassy knoll did it.

Conspiracy theorists do not believe that a lone gunman did it. The lone gunman was Lee Harvey Oswald. Oswald didn't get to say much in his defense except, "I'm a patsy," implying that he knew who really did it. Two days after Oswald shot Kennedy, Jack Ruby put a fatal bullet into Oswald.

The Warren Commission conducted the federal government's official investigation of JFK's assassination. Its 27-volume report said that Oswald, an ex-Marine, acted alone in shooting JFK from a sixth floor window of a book storage building. But to this day, and probably far into the future, many people dispute this "lone gunman" theory. They believe JFK's death was a result of a conspiracy by one or more groups of people who felt threatened or deserted by JFK. The fact that Oswald was murdered while accompanied by a dozen Dallas policemen only strengthens the suspicions of the conspiracy theorists. The Warren report, they say, is merely a government whitewash of the "true" facts.

Ám sát JFK

Vào ngày 22 tháng mười một hàng năm, trên thế giới người ta lại nhớ đến và suy nghĩ về việc ám sát Tổng thống John F. Kennedy vào năm 1963. Ông đang ngồi ghế sau chiếc xe có thể chuyển đổi (đang để mui trần) khi những viên đạn súng trường bắn xé gió vào ông và người bên cạnh.

Việc ám sát do Abraham Zapruder quay được trên 8mm phim. Kỹ thuật số tăng cường thêm bộ phim nổi tiếng đó cho thấy phần hộp sọ bị bắn vỡ. JFK vẫn còn sống khi chiếc xe tăng tốc đến bệnh viện gần nhất; ông chết ngay sau khi đến đó. NÃo bị phá huỷ nghiệm trọng ngay cả kỹ thuật y tế ngày nay cũng không thể cứu sống JFK.

Những giả thuyết âm mưu đã được nghi vấn từ lúc ám sát: Mafia đã làm, Tài xế đã làm, CIA/FBI/ Tình báo đã làm, Quốc hội làm, ngân hàng liên bang làm, LBJ (phó Tổng thống) đã làm, Công sản đã làm, những người Cuba ghét Castro đã làm, và hai gã sau đồi cỏ đã làm.

Những người giả thuyết không tin một tay súng đơn độc đã làm. Tay súng đơn độc này là Lee Harvey Oswald. Oswald không nói nhiều trong lời bào chữa của mình, ngoại trừ, "Tôi là người thi hành," hàm ý rằng hắn biết ai thật sự đã bắn. Hai ngày sau khi Oswald bắn Kennedy, Jack Ruby đã cho Oswald một viên đạn chết người.

Hội đồng nhân dân tiến hành một cuộc điều tra về cuộc ám sát JFK. 27 chương báo cáo nói rằng Oswald, một người từ Hải quân, đã hành động một mình bắn JFK từ cửa sổ tầng sáu của một hiệu sách. Nhưng cho đến hôm nay và có thể trong tương lai, nhiều người tranh cãi lý thuyết "tay đơn súng" này. Họ tin rằng cái chết của JFK là âm mưu của một hay nhiều nhóm người cảm thấy bị JFK đe doạ hoặc sa thải. Sư thật là Oswald bị giết trong khi được hộ tống bởi một tá cảnh sát Dallas chỉ làm củng cố thêm nghi ngờ về những giả thuyết của âm mưu. Báo cáo Warren, họ nói rằng, chỉ là một sự phủi trắng của chính quyền về những "sự thật".

Vào ngày 22 tháng Mười Một hàng năm, mọi người trên toàn thế giới đều nhớ lại và suy nghĩ về vụ ám sát Tổng thống John F.Kennedy vào năm 1963. Ông ngồi ở hàng ghế sau của một chiếc xe mui trần(mui xe đã được hạ xuống)khi những viên đạn từ một khẩu súng trường bắn xé vào ông và người ngồi cùng.

Vụ ám sát đã được Abraham Zapruder quay lại trên máy quay phim 8mm. Các xử lý kỹ thuật số nâng cao của đoạn phim nổi tiếng cho thấy một phần hộp sọ của Kennedy đã bị bắn vỡ. JFK vẫn còn thoi thóp khi chiếc xe mui trần tăng tốc chạy đến bệnh viện gần nhất; ông đã chết ngay sau khi đến đó. Bộ não của ông bị tổn thương nặng nề đến mức ngay cả kỹ thuật y khoa ngày nay cũng không thể cứu được JFK.

Thuyết âm mưu vẫn tiếp tục tồn tại kể từ thời điểm của vụ ám sát: Băng đảng tội phạm Mafia thực hiện, người tài xế thực hiện, Cục tình báo Trung ương/Cục điều tra liên bang/Cơ quan Mật vụ Hoa Kỳ thực hiện, Quốc Hội Hoa Kỳ thực hiện, Cục dự trữ Liên bang thực hiện, Lyndon Baines Johnson(Phó Tổng thống)thực hiện, đảng viên Cộng sản thực hiện, Người dân Cuba căm thù Castro thực hiện, và hai chàng trai phía sau đồi cỏ đã thực hiện.

Những người theo chủ thuyết âm mưu không tin một kẻ cầm súng đơn độc làm được điều đó. Kẻ cầm súng đơn độc đó là Lee Harvey Oswald. Oswald không nói nhiều để biện hộ cho hắn ngoài việc nói: "Tôi là một thằng khờ," ngụ ý rắng hắn biết ai đã thực sự làm việc đó. Hai ngày sau khi Oswald bắn Kennedy, Jack Ruby đã đưa một viên đạn tai hoạ cho Oswald.

Ủy ban Warren của văn phòng Chính phủ Liên bang đã tiến hành điều tra chính thức vụ ám sát JFK. Trong 27 cuốn báo cáo của uỷ ban cho rằng Oswald, một cựu thuỷ quân lục chiến, đã hành động một mình khi bắn vào JFK từ cửa sổ tầng sáu của một kho sách. Nhưng cho đến tận ngày nay, và chắc chắn trong tương lai, nhiều người sẽ còn tranh luận về giả thuyết "người cầm súng đơn độc" này. Người ta tin rằng cái chết của JFK là kết quả của một âm mưu do một hoặc nhiều nhóm người bị JFK đe doạ hoặc không còn được trọng dụng nữa. Sự kiện Oswald bị giết hại trong lúc được 12 viên cảnh sát ở Dallas hộ tống chỉ càng làm tăng thêm sự nghi ngờ của những người theo chủ thuyết âm mưu. Báo cáo Warren về việc ám sát Tổng thống Kennedy, những nhà chủ thuyết nói, chỉ đơn thuần là việc che giấu sự thật của chính phủ về một sự kiện "đúng với sự thật" mà thôi .

- Conspiracy theories: Thuyết âm mưu

Hi, nguoidochanh,

Nhu vậy chỉ còn 18 ngày nữa là tròn 49 năm ngày TT Kennedy bị ám sát. Hồi nhỏ mình có được xem qua đoạn phim TT bị ám sát và đoạn phim tang lễ của ông. Dù còn nhỏ nhưng tới bây giờ mình vẫn còn nhớ rõ cảm giác xúc động khi thấy hai đứa con bụ bẫm, ngây thơ đi theo quan tài của cha mình. Nhất là khi cậu bé bồng tay chào tiễn biệt cha mình lần cuối. Và bây giờ thì cậu ấy cũng đã đoàn tụ với cha mẹ rồi!

Search Google mình thấy có hai ý kiến về từ:

- Conspiracy theories: Có người dịch là thuyết âm mưu - Có người dịch là Thuyết ngờ vực.

- Conspiracy theorist: Ở đây cũng thế: Người theo chủ thuyết âm mưu hoặc người theo chủ thuyết ngờ vực.

Lúc đầu mình cũng dịch là thuyết âm mưu nhưng thấy ý trong bài, cho đến tận bây giờ người ta vẫn còn hồ nghi động cơ ám sát TT Kennedy của bọn sát nhân. Vì vậy, mình đã dịch là Thuyết ngờ vực.

Mình sẽ chỉnh lại.

Thanks, ndh. Happy weekend!
