Do you accept the testimony of Howard Brennan as absolutely accurate?

When a large number of witnesses all report the same thing, the odds of them all being identically mistaken go down drastically.

"If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the coverup."

Are you part of the coverup?

"When a large number of witnesses all report the same thing, the odds of them all being identically mistaken go down drastically."

Not merely a "large number.".....  The vast majority of the witnesses reported that the last two shots were nearly simultaneous......  That's impossible with a bolt action rifle....

Hi Bob.....I thought that you would have had a little fun with Mr Mytton's  referring to the rifle as a Full Metal Jacket rifle.

"Oswald with his FMJ bolt action rifle"...John Mytton....

I have a question that I?ve wondered about, which may take a psychologist to answer.

Didn?t most everyone testify they first heard  1) firecracker/tire blow out/backfire 2) gunshot 3) gunshot  so that all the testimonies that subsequently said  shot, shot, shot have technically been testimonies that have been changed?  What made them all change their testimony?  How is a human?s perception of sound vs time-sequencing influenced by first hearing a sound that is internally judged inconsequential (fire cracker etc.) and is just dismissed, but later the individual has a rapid change in awareness/alertness as they realized a shooting was happening after hearing/realizing two gun shots occurred shortly thereafter?

IMO...The first BOOM that was heard was a firecracker...it was a signal to he killers to open fire.....because the signaler with the firecracker had received the thumbs up from the man who would have the power to could cover it all up..... once That SOB Kennedy was dead.

Timing

Multiple shots spaced over many seconds is typical of a bolt action rifle.


Accuracy

Yeah sure a triangulation of snipers are going to continually miss their target which was moving relatively slowly down Elm Street, as if! Whereas Oswald who was a little rusty missed his first shot and realistically his second shot can also be classified as a miss because JFK's head must have been the target and then the last shot was too high and almost missed, some professional.

Wounds

Kennedy's neck wound was a straight through and through injury a classic FMJ wound whereas a sniper's bullet would have caused a terrible wound and most probably would have killed Kennedy immediately but Oswald who only had a military weapon left two neat holes. Also the theory that Kennedy's back of neck bullet only went in an inch is not supported by the Xrays and beyond that the physics of a slowed bullet only entering an inch, yet not falling short is illogical.

Oswald most likely was aiming at the head the whole time. He was trying to kill, not wound.

Calling wild-ass speculation "most likely" doesn't actually make it anything other than wild-ass speculation.

  • 'Pristine'..yeah, sure
Could the head shot have been carefully aimed?
There's always luck to consider...

  • The human mind is our fundamental resource. JFK
LBJ and Russell September 9,1964:

RUSSELL: No, no, They're trying to prove that the same bullett that hit Kennedy first was the one that hit Connally, went through him and through his hand, his bone and into his leg... I couldn't hear all the evidence and cross-examine all of 'em. But I did read the record...I was the only fellow there that...suggested any change whatever in what the staff got up. This staff business always scares me. I like to put my own views down. But we got you a pretty good report.

LBJ: Well, what difference does it make which bullet got Connally?

RUSSELL: Well, it don't make much difference. But they said that...the commission believes that the same bullet that hit Kennedy hit Connally. Well I don't believe it.

LBJ: I don't either

RUSSELL: And so I couldn't sign it. And I said that Govenor Connally testified directly to the contrary and I'm not gonna approve of that. So I finnally made 'em say there was a difference in the commission,in that part of 'em believed that that wasn't so. And 'course if a fellow was accurate enough to hit Kennedy right in the neck on one shot and knock his head off in the next one-and he's leaning up against his wife's head-and not even wound her-why, he didn't miss completely with that third shot. But according to their theory, he not only missed the whole automobile, but he missed the the street! Well, a man that's a good enough shot to put two bullets right into Kennedy, he didn't miss that whole automobile.

Considering that the head shot was the last shot leads to only one logical conclusion, that whoever was shooting had finally accomplished his mission.

*It is perhaps worth noting that out of the seven Commission members, the three who had problems with the single-bullet theory were among the least faithful in attending Commission hearings during which testimony was given, two of them the worst. Cooper missed 44 out of the 94 hearings, the fourth worst attendance record; Boggs missed 74 hearings, the second worst. Living up to Benjamin Franklin?s adage that an empty drum sounds the loudest, Russell, who should have been the quietest, was the loudest dissenter. Shockingly irresponsible, Russell only attended 6 out of the 94 hearings, having more important things to do at the time, namely, being the leader in the Senate of the South?s opposition to the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. In fairness to Russell, he did write a letter to Johnson on February 24, 1964, saying that because of his ?legislative duties,? he did not have enough time to serve on the Commission, but Warren ignored the letter, and Russell continued to serve. (Fite, Richard B. Russell, pp. 406, 416, 421) Chief Justice Warren, who was busier and had more responsibilities outside the Commission than anyone else on the Commission, had the best attendance record, commendably attending all or a portion of all 94 hearings. Representative Gerald Ford had the next best attendance record, showing up at 70 of the 94 hearings. Dulles attended 60, and McCloy 35
