Thread: JFK Assassination
#1 JFK Assassination11-23-2010, 10:24 AM
Yesterday was the 47th anniversary of the JFK assassination. He was the 4th U.S. president to be assassinated but he's the only one to be killed from a shooter who wasn't up close. Booth, Guiteau, and Czolgosz all did their shooting at point blank range but Kennedy was (supposedly) shot from the 6th floor of a book depository with a sniper's rifle. This is the most talked about assassination to this day because there are so many questions surrounding whether or not Oswald acted alone. The Warren Commission said he did but there are many, many flaws in their theories, most notably is the single bullet theory. As we all know, they surmised that 1 bullet caused 7 injuries on 2 men including breaking Gov. Connelly's wrist and remained in pristine which was found on a stretcher at Parkland Hospital. I do believe that the kill shot came from above and not from in front only because looking at the Zapruder film, it looks as though the right front portion of Kennedy's head explodes and it's to my understanding that in rifle shots, the exit wound is the most severe. Anyway, what are your theories? Did Oswald act alone? Is Garrison right that the government conspired to kill Kennedy? Was it Cubans? The Mob? Russians? Who knows?Deplorably Proud To Be An American

He was incredibly well-read and studied the assassination, and years and years ago, when discussing the issue I remember him saying there was no way in hell that Oswald could have made that shot, with that gun, at that angle, and that distance. That it simply wasn't possible. I have never heard any evidence compelling enough to refute his conviction.
So bullet trajectories aside, I think it's unlikely that Oswald shot anybody.

After being there, and then watching the film again to see the apparent trajectory of the bullet that blows the back of his head out, I started leaning more toward there having been another shooter. When you stand at that window, it's easy to see that a Marine sniper could make the shot. And I think it amazingly hard but plausible that he could have gotten 3 off from that rifle in the time line. But what I can't see is how a shot from that window down to the X on the street could have gone into the head at an angle that would have blown out the back of the head. That just doesn't look feasible to me. When you look down from the window, and see where JFK was at the point of impact, Oswald was looking at the back of his head. The blow out should have been from back to front if that shot came from the window.
Then you go stand on the famed grassy knoll, and looking back at the film, a shot from there would be very consistent with the head blowing out to the back. JFK would have been facing the shooter at the impact point. I guess we will never know, but it does make you wonder.

the "magic bullet" was debunked many years ago. the bullet came from the rear. the angle takes the bullet right back to the window Oswald fired from
