UNDATED (KNSI) Among those remembering the assassination of President John F. Kennedy 50 years ago today (Friday) is Minnesota's Walter Mondale.

The former vice president says he remembers being in his office when his secretary came in, "and said the radio says the president has been shot. We just sat there. There's was nothing we could do. I don't think I've ever been more depressed."

Mondale says the "Warren Commission Report was flawed," and that helped keep conspiracy theories alive. But he says there were, "two or three other basic studies of this, and none of them have come up with a different result."

Mondale says he does not believe Kennedy was the victim of a conspiracy, but he says his death changed the course of American history, and made the country more cynical and pessimistic.
