Ford's Editing Backed 'Single Bullet' Theory
« on: March 11, 2018, 02:18:12 AM »
As a member of the Warren Commission that investigated the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy, Gerald Ford suggested that the panel change its initial description of the bullet wound in Kennedy's back to place it higher up in the body. The change, critics said, may have been intended to support the controversial theory that a "single bullet" struck Kennedy from behind, exited his neck and then wounded Texas Gov. John B. Connally Jr. The Warren Commission relied on it heavily in concluding that Lee Harvey Oswald was Kennedy's lone assassin, firing from a sniper's nest above and behind the president in the Texas School Book Depository. Ford's handwritten editing, revealed in newly disclosed papers kept by the commission's general counsel, was accepted with a slight change. The initial draft of the report stated: "A bullet had entered his {Kennedy's} back at a point slightly below the shoulder to the right of the spine." Ford wanted it to read:" A bullet had entered the back of his neck slightly to the right of the spine."   The Final Report said:" A bullet had entered the base of the back of his neck slightly to the right of his spine."       The Washington Post  By George Lardner Jr. July 3 , 1997

The original draft stated:

A bullet had entered his back at a point slightly above the shoulder to the right of the spine.

That did not make sense, since a bullet entering "above the shoulder" would not be entering the back.

The final draft stated:

A bullet had entered the base of the back of his neck and slightly to the right of his spine.

They changed the wording, not the location of the wound.

Of course, they couldn't change the location of the wound, Sherlock. They changed the wording to support their crazy suppositions.

Fortunately, there is enough evidence to support the shot being below the shoulder.

Ford realized that lie in the first draft didn't make sense and moved the description of the location

of the wound, and thus the wound, from JFK's back to the back of his neck.

Unfortunately for Ford we have this report from the autopsy that tells the truth.

I fixed it for you....

"Ford realized that lie the wording in the first draft didn't make sense and moved the description of the location

of the wound from JFK's back to the back  base of the back of his neck.

Fortunately for Ford we have the autopsy photos which support the rewording of the original draft."

Judging by your recent posting history, I'd be careful if I were you when mockingly calling another member "Sherlock".

The authentic autopsy photos show that the wound was not below the shoulder.

During an executive session of the WC Rankin tells McCloy they have color photos of JFK's body from the autopsy


Rankin tells another executive session of the WC they have a picture showing the wound in JFK's back is lower than the one in the front of his neck.

              The above is obviously Not a Medical Description designating the Exact Location of the BACK Bullet Wound. Lay Men ALL the time generally use the term Shoulder when they are in fact referencing the Shoulder Blade. All the WC had to do was include the Autopsy Face Sheet if they wanted to pin-point the Exact BACK Wound Location. This intentional Clouding of the Truth was in line with their obfuscation throughout the entire WC Report.
