As Gerald Ford was telling Arlen S. " Why don't we just move this shallow back entry wound on up to the base of the neck and just have that bullet become the Single Bullet theory and have it going through JFK & JC . Hell we are the Warren Commission and we can do anything we want . You know Arlen , I just might be President one of these days and someone might take a shot at me . As Arlen says , " if you can be President then I can surely be a Senator after this 26 volume set hits the stands. Hell , we'll just let Humes (the moving wounds) take the heat .

Gerald Fords placement of the "base of the neck" ( AKA back wound ) would almost have put the bullet hole very close to where JFK's shirt collar would have been . But that really doesn't matter because DR. HUMES WOUNDS OF MOVEMENTS would have covered for any placement . Apparently Thomas Robinson should not have been in the room when Humes was rearranging wounds ! "That's what the Drs. did" Ooops !

Jerry Ford was said to be the mole for J. Edgar Hoover , in that he kept Hoover appraised as to what was going on  with the Warren Commission and where they were heading as far as their beliefs and findings . Did Jerry Ford , on his own , decide that the shot in the back below the right shoulder blade and to the right of the spine , be moved up to the base of the neck which of course became the path of the " Single Bullet Theory " ? As part of not not believing certain findings of the Warren Commission , there are thoughts that Hale Boggs going against some parts of these findings might have cost him his life when his plane went down and was never found , kind of like Ron Brown during the Clinton Presidency and of course the crash of Ted Kennedy which almost cost him his life and then the crash of JFK Jr. & his wife and her sister who all died in his plane .

Hi Mike O --

The people on this board can only handle one conspiracy at a time so let's stick to JFK. :-)

Ford - yes, just a nice little last-minute tweak to the official report to shove that round peg into a square hole a little bit further.

Hale Boggs - heard about the plane crash; don't think anything sinister happened

Brown and Clinton - never heard of such a conspiracy

Ted Kennedy crash - probably just a run-of-the-mill crash

JFK Junior's crash - he should have never been flying so late in the day. He was not instrument rated and lost his bearings up there. Nothing sinister.

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

Hi Mike, all Ford did was make the wording more accurately represent what was written in the autopsy report.

Sure, John, sure. I had to double check but Ford got it spot on "back of the neck."

Here's what it looked like during the autopsy:



...and then I checked it again on Wiki:

Yep, Ford got it right, alright.

Junction City train station

A voice comes over the intercom:
'Back, meet neck... neck, meet back'

Back: Guess we'll have to share the fame on this one, huh?
Neck: Seems only fair, since the Inshot landed right on top of the both of us.
Back: We'll flip for who gets top billing.
Neck: Nah, back/neck.. neck/back.. no biggee, as long as both are included when describing the twofer.
Back: Okay, let's take a shot at it.

Michael, much more often than not, I agree with your posted opinions/details, including in your post quoted above.
However, 20 years ago last month, I found this burial at sea of Lauren Bessette, a V.P. of a prominent Wall Street firm to be "hinky".

The "PTB" knew as well as you and I do that "stuff" like this is never "put to bed," so why on earth do they predictably opt to and act as catalysts to perpetuate curiousity and doubt? Is the answer simply that they choose what they perceive at the time to be the least bad of only bad choices available?

This begs the question; if the "PTB" demonstrate such consistently poor judgment in the atmosphere of what they so often
tout as an "open society" why is it reasonable (mandatory ?) to accept their official pronouncements? Is it only reasonable because the alternative is to be marginalized by this same alliance of journalists and "movers and shakers"?

 ...July 23, 1999

...Mr. Kennedy did not meet any of the criteria for people who are automatically entitled to naval commitment at sea. The special service was possible only because of a dispensation from the Secretary of Defense, William S. Cohen, in response to a request from Mr. Kennedy's uncle, Senator Edward M. Kennedy.

Such ceremonies are usually reserved for active or retired military members, their spouses and dependent children. A Defense Department official said the service itself did not follow military protocol, but instead was a religious service.

Officials acknowledged that the service was unprecedented. But the Pentagon spokesman, Kenneth H. Bacon, defended the decision, saying, ''It's a family that has distinguished itself through public service and sacrificed itself through public service for more than 30 years.''...

The Other Passenger: Who Was Lauren Bessette?
Reduced to a footnote to the national tragedy of losing JFK Jr. and his wife Carolyn, Lauren Bessette was a star in her own right—accomplished, ambitious, beautiful, and loved by her friends.

by ADRIENNE GAFFNEY
JUL 9, 2019 ....
...In any other grouping, Lauren would have been the star. Thirty-four years old and on the fast track at Morgan Stanley, Bessette had an Ivy League MBA, was fluent in Mandarin, and had a sophisticated group of friends. She was the kind of New York City talent many people dream of befriending. Her friends say she was brilliant, compassionate, quick witted, and a champion of those who were struggling. One colleague told the New York Observer, “She may have been more successful than [John and Carolyn] were.”...

The plane wreckage itself was accorded superior security than BOP extended to Mr. Epstein, in Brooklyn this month!

From the junction where the back joins the neck

A voice comes over the intercom:
'Back, meet neck... neck, meet back'

Back: Guess we'll have to share the fame on this one, huh?
Neck: Seems only fair, since the Inshot landed right on top of the both of us.
Back: We'll flip for who gets top billing.
Neck: Nah, back/neck.. neck/back.. no biggee, as long as both are included when describing the twofer.
Back: Okay, let's take a shot at it.

Sure, Bill, sure. There's a thing in anatomy called the nape:

The very first line at the above says the back of the neck.

Now if you want to argue and disagree over thousands of medical professionals who call that area the nape - that loose fold of skin that everyone has - vs a politician who was trying to further a square peg into a round hole - then you go right ahead. And you know, it's the same politician who pardoned one of the most corrupt US presidents in US history rather than let him face the consequences.

But it sure looks to me like that bullet hole is well below the nape, also known as the back of the neck.

But that's OK Bill. Let that old Kennedy bias hate creep in, blinding you to what's obvious to many more unbiased eyes.
