Edwin didn't seem too concerned ;-)

For all anyone knows, Walker was still feeling the stress of almost being killed. That can be easily masked.

Would-be leaders, and (Generals) need to appear unflappable and strong under pressure. It seems that Walker accomplished that. And used that opportunity to spew out his righty propaganda.

Yes, he has... It appears he's an LNer and a CTer... easy to accomplish in 'Anything-Goes' WallyWorld.

I believe what you're attempting to say is:.....  Walt thinks for himself outside the box...

And you're right....  I don't disagree with everything a person says simply because he supports LBJ's cover up committee's decree..( which is a rubber stamp of JE Hoover's decree) Nor do I agree with everything a person says simply because he says he's a CT....

No, I'm not trying to say that.

And the only evidence of 'outside-the-box' is you moving the boxes ( so-to-speak) from SE corner to the SW corner.

Roger Craig never saw a mauser in the TSBD that afternoon, Rob.....

And you know this how? I know that I'll regret that I asked.

Your trying to shift the burden. It won't work. The WC claimed in 1964 that Main Street had advantages over streets like Elm, but utterly failed to support this claim. You have also failed to support it.

Those two turns were NOT needed. End of story.

You keep making claims that you never support?

Why don't you post evidence?

The extra turns in Ft Worth weren't absolutely required, either. But there they happened all the same. Therefore, the Rob Caprio-devised standard of minimizing turns wasn't used in planning Presidential motorcades. They had their own standards, based primarily on the realities of 1963 politics, and not on some invented latter-day Caprian notion of proper protocol.

Anyway, you are the guy claiming that the straight-up-your-Elm-bub route was so superior that the Main-Houston-Elm router should not have been used. It is up to you to prove it. And you have to prove it to the standards of the day and place, not whatever you invent to suit yourself. You simply haven't done that, and it's your burden, kid.

I have NOT made a claim. Pointing out that the WC failed to support their claim is not a new claim by me. It is simply a fact.

And that proves that there was no Mauser too how? Talk about having your head buried.

So you still can't support their claim. Got it.
