Dr. Robert Shaw, Governor Connally's physician, says that CE 399, the "Magic Bullet",
could not have caused the wounds he saw and treated in Governor Connally.

Was there? How much more? Was it 50% of the total weight missing or 10% or 1% or what exactly?

There were fragments in Connally's leg that were never removed. I believe there was a failed attempt to exhume his body, sometime after his death, to facilitate their removal.

CE 399 never touched Connally.

There was only one fragment that was ever in Connally's leg. It was buried with him. In examining X-Rays of the thigh, Dr. Gregory determined it to be about 2mm x 0.5mm. That fragment came from CE 399 , which had shallowly lodged in the thigh and fell out onto Connally's stretcher where it was later found by Darrell Tomlinson.

How does a fragment that is 2mm in its greatest diameter create an entry wound 10 mm in diameter? Explain that one Einstein. Dr. Shires described the wound as being shallow. I don't need a doctor to explain how a 3 cm long bullet that had penetrated perhaps no more than a cm could have fallen out of the leg.

'Wasn't weren't more fragments'

I hereby charge you with insulting the plural tense
