Click Reclaiming Science:The JFK Conspiracy to look inside the book.
1- The single–bullet theory (SBT):
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,
c) his shirt bunched up far more than could reasonably have been expected,
d) the bullet’s downward trajectory entered JFK’s back 5.5 inches below the collar,
e) the bullet then changed direction upward and exited JFK’s throat,
f) the bullet proceeded to cause all five of Connally’s wounds,
g) the bullet emerged in pristine condition on a Parkland hospital stretcher.
2- 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.
3- The 90+ eyewitnesses who claimed to have heard gunshots, saw smoke or smelled gunpowder coming from the grassy knoll must have all been mistaken.
4- The 22 Parkland Hospital doctors who claimed there was an entrance wound in President Kennedy’s throat must have all been mistaken.
5- The 44 Doctors and witnesses at Parkland and the autopsy who saw a large exit wound located at the right-rear of Kennedy’s head must have all been mistaken.
6- The Warren Commission said Tippit was shot at 1:16, which was also the time he was declared dead at the hospital The 10+ witnesses who saw or heard shots fired at 1:06 must have been mistaken. .
7- The autopsy photograph of a bullet hole in Kennedy’s back was five inches lower than described in the Warren Report. It must have been a misprint.
8- Dr Charles Carrico viewed Kennedy’s throat wound before the president’s shirt and tie were removed and said it was located above the shirt. He must have been mistaken.
9- John Connally sat in front of Kennedy and has consistently maintained that he and Kennedy were hit by separate bullets. He must have been mistaken.
10- Nellie Connally sat on her husband’s left and confirmed that they were hit by separate bullets. She must have been mistaken.
11- A fingerprint expert identified the print found on the 6th floor of the TSBD to be an exact match of LBJ hit man Mac Wallace. He must have been mistaken.
12- Army and FBI experts claimed that the Mannlicher-Carcano rifle was incapable of accomplishing the shooting. They must have been mistaken.
13 – It is possible that DPD Marrion Baker and TSBD manager Truly encountered Oswald holding a coke and was not out of breath on the 2nd floor less than 90 seconds after the shooting.
14- Several witnesses who walked down the stairs immediately after the shooting did not see or hear anyone run down the stairs from the 6th floor. They must have been mistaken.
15- The large wound in the president’s head displayed all the signs of a soft–nosed bullet. But it must have been caused by a very unusual solid, metal–jacketed bullet.
16- Two witnesses who claimed they saw Oswald carrying a bag that was too small to contain a rifle into the Texas School Book Depository the morning of the assassination must have been mistaken.
17- Connally could 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- 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- Four 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 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 a coincidence that Jack Ruby would die from sudden 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 that expert marksmen could not duplicate. He barely passed his Marine marksmanship test and used an inferior, bolt action rifle with a misaligned scope.
25- 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. The man waiting for him looked like Jack Ruby. Mercer told Jim Garrison that her deposition was altered and signature forged. She was not called by the Warren Commission. She must have been mistaken or lied.
26- Although the probability is E-62 (one in a trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion) that 78 of 1400+ material witnesses would die unnaturally in 1964-78, it does not prove a conspiracy.
27- The fact that Fritz’s notes of his interrogation of Oswald did not surface until 1993 was due to incompetence on the part of the Warren Commission. In the notes, Oswald said he was “out front with Bill Shelley”.
28- The fact that Oswald was a $200/mo FBI informer and a CIA asset was kept hidden by the WC was just an oversight.
29- The fact that Gerald Ford of the WC admitted that he moved JFK’s back wound up 5 inches to conform with the Single Bullet Theory does not indicate that he was distorting the record ob purpose.
30- FBI agents Sibert and O’Neill attended the autopsy. They claimed that JFK was struck in the back 5 inches below the collar by a bullet that did not exit and that Gerald Ford committed a crime in moving the back wound up 5 inches. They must have been mistaken.
31- Over 50 of the 122 suspicious JFK deaths were in the Dallas area. This does not indicate that Dallas witnesses were unique among the entire U.S. population. It must have been a coincidence.
Note: Dallas has a higher homicide rate than the national average. Assuming it is triple the 0.000084 national rate, the probability of 34 homicides using the adjusted Dallas rate is P = 7.60e-17, or 1 in 13,000 trillion.
