Don't think so.

You have zero argument. So I take your answer and put it directly in the garbage :)

I agree with the first part - that the SBT is false, but Arlen Specter and others acted in good faith in putting the theory forward.  They were convinced partly by what they saw in the zfilm and by the FBI (Robert Frazier) that Gov. Connally was reacting to being hit by the bullet that struck him in the back/armpit by z240 but probably more convinced because they could find no other explanation for where the bullet that passed through JFK's neck went after it exited JFK's throat.  There was no evidence that it struck inside the car, so they concluded it had to have hit Gov. Connally.  That was a reasonable conclusion.  The first shot SBT is a plausible theory and that does appear to be the version favoured by the WC.  Since the WC, however, the SBT has evolved into "certainty" that it was the first shot that missed and the second shot that struck both JFK and Gov. Connally.  That theory is at odds with large bodies of consistent evidence (the evidence of 20+ witnesses that the first shot struck JFK as he reacted immediately to it as if he was hit by it (no smiling and waving for several seconds afterward); that the second shot was after the midpoint between 1 and 3 and, therefore, only one shot before z250; that the first shot was after z186 and before z202; that the second shot was just before Greer turned around for the first time (he turns around from z276-280). As a result, the only shot that could have passed through JFK and struck Gov. Connally is the first shot.

Yes, I fully agree with you. So I misspoke and I apologize. You are absolutely right.

Apart from the virtual impossibility that JFK's neck could have stopped that bullet, there is absolutely no evidence that the bullet CE399 came from the stretcher or table on which JFK was placed.  There is evidence that it came from the stretcher used by Gov. Connally.  The evidence puts Connally's stretcher in the same second floor location of the stretcher on which CE399 was found (it fell to the floor after the stretcher was moved). JFK's stretcher was never taken to the second floor). If you conclude that it had to be on one of those two stretchers (which, in my view, absent evidence that it was planted, is the only reasonable conclusion), then it came from Gov. Connally.

On the other hand, you're a little off topic here. Nevertheless, I can add the fact that in reality, exhibit CE-399 is actually the last projectile fired at Dealey Plaza. It was fired from the 6th floor of the Texas School Book Depository by Lee Harvey Oswald. His bullet hit the concrete next to the sewer plate, then ricocheted and fell back into the grass of Dealey Plaza. (Z-401 & Z-402). The bullet will then be recovered by the investigators. So it has absolutely nothing to do with Kennedy and Connally's injuries.

Most of this thread is "off topic". But the issue of where CE399 came from is actually related to the SBT.  The SBT says that CE399 was the single bullet that caused all of JFK's and Gov. Connally's non-fatal injuries (ie. all the damage except the head shot).  If it came from JFK's back, that would eliminate the possiblity that it also struck Gov. Connally.

So it has absolutely nothing to do with Kennedy and Connally's injuries.
If a pristine 6.5 mm rifle bullet travelling at anything close to 2000 feet/sec. struck concrete and deflected and then slowed down enough to land on the grass in Dealey Plaza, it must have deposited most of its energy in the concrete that it struck and in deforming itself.  Both the concrete and the bullet would show this. The pressure on the nose of the bullet striking the concrete would be far greater than the copper jacket and lead core could withstand and the bullet nose would yield to that pressure and show obvious signs of the impact. There are no such signs on the bullet.  There is no evidence of a strike on the concrete either.  There is rather strong evidence that the head shot was the last of three shots.  There is evidence that a fragment from the second shot struck James Tague.  He was standing about 300 feet from the limo at the time of the third shot and directly in line with the 6th floor sniper's nest and the limo.  So the evidence is against CE399 being the second or third shot. CE399 is consistent with a shot passing through JFK and then striking something that did not immediately slow or stop it but allowed it to come to a more gradual stop (such as a glancing strike, butt-first striking something hard enough to dent the base and penetrating enough flesh/muscle sufficient to stop it over some distance).
