1- Two witnesses saw Oswald carrying a bag that it was too small to contain a rifle into the Texas School Book Depository on the morning of the assassination must have been mistaken.
2- Julia Ann Mercer claimed in a deposition that she saw a man walking up the grassy knoll carrying a rifle one hour before the assassination and that a man waiting for him looked like Jack Ruby. Mercer told Jim Garrison that her deposition was altered and signature forged and was not called by the Warren Commission. She must have been mistaken about everything she said.
3- The 51 eyewitnesses who claimed to have heard gunshots, saw smoke or smelled gunpowder coming from the grassy knoll must have all been mistaken.
4- The 15 Parkland Hospital doctors who said there was an entrance wound in President Kennedy’s throat must have all been mistaken.
5- Doctors and witnesses who claimed to have seen a large exit wound located at the right-rear of Kennedy’s head must have all been mistaken.
6- Eye witnesses at the Tippit scene who saw two shooters must have been mistaken.
7- The autopsy photograph of a bullet hole in Kennedy’s back, five inches lower than described in the Warren Report, must have been a misprint.
8- Dr Charles Carrico, who saw Kennedy’s throat wound before the president’s shirt and tie were removed and claimed the wound was located above the shirt, must have been mistaken.
9- John Connally, who was sitting directly in front of Kennedy and maintained under oath and repeatedly in later interviews that he and Kennedy were hit by separate bullets, must have been mistaken.
10- Nellie Connally, who was sitting to her husband’s left and also claimed they were hit by separate bullets, must have been mistaken.
11- The fingerprint expert who identified the print found on the 6th floor of the TSBD to be an exact match to LBJ hit man Mac Wallace must have been mistaken.
12- Army and FBI experts who claimed that the Mannlicher-Carcano rifle was incapable of accomplishing the shooting must have been mistaken.
13 – Oswald dashed down four flights of stairs in less than 90 seconds and was not of breath when seen by Officer Baker and TSBD official Truly.
14- Several well–placed witnesses who failed to see or hear Oswald running down the wooden stairs must have been exceptionally negligent.
15- The large wound in the president’s head which displayed all the signs of a soft–nosed bullet, must have been caused by a very unusual solid, metal–jacketed bullet.
16- The single–bullet theory is valid since a) Kennedy leaned much further forward than shown in photographs or films, b) his jacket bunched up much more than shown in a photograph taken less than half a second before he was visible from the sixth–floor window, and c) his shirt bunched up far more than could reasonably have been expected.
17- Connally would be able to hold his hat seconds after being hit by the magic bullet that exited Kennedy’s throat.
18- JFK would fall back and to the left after being hit from behind.
19- The paraffin tests on Oswald’s hands and cheek which indicated he did not fire a rifle on 11/22 must have been incompetently administered.
20- Three police officers who saw “7.65 Mauser” on the barrel of the first rifle found on the 6th floor of the TSBD must have all been mistaken.
21- It was just a macabre coincidence that seven top FBI officials due to testify at HSCA would all die within a 6 month period in 1977.
22- Bullets recovered at Dealey Plaza that did not match the Mannlicher-Carcano must have been from a previous shooting incident.
23- It was just bad luck that Jack Ruby would die from cancer within 29 days of being diagnosed and granted a new trial.
24- Oswald made two of three shots in under six seconds, a feat expert marksmen could not duplicate, despite the fact that he barely passed his Marine marksmanship test and used an inferior, bolt action rifle with a misaligned scope.
25 The Warren Commission did not “fudge the evidence” when it changed its original finding that three shots hit JFK to 1) a single bullet struck JFK in the back, exited his throat and caused five additional wounds in Connally, 2) the second shot missed, hit a curb and bystander James Tague on the cheek, and 3) the final shot hit JFK high on the back of the skull.
26- Although the probability is less than one in a trillion trillion trillion that 41 of 1100+ witnesses sought in four JFK investigations would be murdered in 1964-78, it does not prove a conspiracy.
