Oliver Stone's so-called documentary, JFK Revisited, misuses an interview clip of Marina Porter to try and show her denying that she took the backyard photographs.

It's pretty clear from Marina's HSCA testimony that she had no idea how many Backyard photos existed or how to use an Imperial Reflex Camera.

She wasn't able to say if she took 1, 2, 3, or 4 pictures (there were at least four).

She couldn't explain to the HSCA how to operate the camera (strange that she wouldn't remember the details of the first time she ever used a camera).

Still, she probably did take the photos but if that's true, why has her testimony been so inconsistent?

I don't believe that she has ever been inconsistent on taking the BY photos.  She just couldn't remember exactly when or how many such photos that she took when asked many months later.   Many people couldn't remember exactly when they took a picture if you asked them months after the event.  That creates no ambiguity, however, about her taking them.  If even one is genuine, there would be no reason whatsoever for anyone to fake additional photos.

Most people donít forget details of the first time they did something. Especially if it was for an unusual occasion as strange as Leeís backyard photos. How often did Lee ask her to take pictures of him posing with guns? Rare and emotionally stressful events arenít easily forgotten.

No one in the film argues that the photos are fake.

The fact that they brought up the Backyard Photos while discussing the inconsistencies with the rifle imply that the producers of JFK Revisited accept that the BYP are authentic.

Then why question why Marina can't remember how many pictures that she took?

Because it could mean she didnít tell the truth.

If your spouse asks you to take pictures of her posing with guns, would you easily forget major details about that event?

Most likely she wanted to distance herself from any involvement with Lee so she played dumb. People do this all the time.

Brokaw specifically mentions ballistics tests.
In her denial, Marina specifically mentions ballistics tests.

Not sure what you're seeing.

She didn't give a crap about guns, in fact called them something like 'man toys' She was always putting Oswald down, such as his musing about becoming an ambassador, or something. She laughed at this macho back-yard boy thing as well.

As for any inconsistency in testifying generally, I recall something about her referring to the fact that he was her husband; that the first thing one does is protect one's spouse.

So you are questioning that they are authentic?  I thought you just said they were genuine and you were only questioning whether they depict the same MC rifle found on the 6th floor.   Again, she didn't forget that she took them.  She has always been consistent on that fact.  Only in the pedantic world or CTers in which someone can't remember the exact day and number of such photos that she took has she ever been hazy.  She seemed dismissive of Oswald's nutty behavior while they were married.  Taking a few pictures of him pretending to be some type of revolutionary figure must have struck her as humorous.  It only becomes a notable event many months later.  In hindsight it is easy to say that she should have committed every detail to memory but she had no cause to do so at the time.  That doesn't cast doubt on the authenticity of the photos.  She confirms that she took them.
