 Roger Craig says that "7.65 Mauser" was stamped on the barrel... and the casings found were 6.5...
Why would we not believe Craig's testimony?

That's a shotgun. Also...see the blonde guy bottom right? That is the same spook that was over at the curb w/Buddy Walthers picking up bullets in the grass.

Jerry, That's not a shotgun... It's a long rifle...

Those are shotguns.
No big deal.

D.A. Wade called the weapon a Mauser at a press conference near midnight. Surely by then they should have known it wasn't one IF it was a M-C as claimed.



Oswald's rifle C2766 was filmed as it was picked up and this footage was broadcast on television just a few hours later.



Oswald's rifle C2766 on the same afternoon was paraded in front of the press.

Was Roger Craig a liar?

He says he saw "7.65 Mauser" stamped on the barrel of the rifle that was found....

Was he lying?

Back in 2008 John Simkin posted an e-mail he'd received from Michelle
Palmer, nee Deanna Craig, daughter of Roger Craig:

Email from Roger Craig's daughter:

[Quote on]

There are a few items in your article about Roger Craig you just might
want to correct for the sake of accuracy and truth in reporting. i) His
marriage didn't end due to repeated harassment or threats - unless you
count his repeated threats to end his own life. ii) The man was disturbed.
As his daughter I would place money on the fact that he suffered from
either Borderline Personality Disorder or Bi-polar depression. Those last
two attempts on his life? The husband of the woman he was fooling around
with. Trust me, I met her AND her daughters before the bastard killed
himself. The husband met him at the door with that shoulder shot.

Articles like yours only serve to continue the myth. My father was a
disturbed man. I'm not disputing that what he thought he saw was something
different than what was reported. But let's face it, my dad didn't know a
Mauser from a whatever. He was a Wisconsin farmboy who joined the army
illegally, and was released from duty because he kept injuring himself - I
note you don't mention all the self-inflicted scars from his tour of duty.
Furthermore, it is EXACTLY this kind of dramatic license that killed my
father. It fed his disease. It fed his paranoia. And in the end, it
contributed to his self-destruction. You should be ashamed of yourself for
perpetuating this garbage.

On a related note, Michelle Palmer responds to a book review that
mentioned her dad:

Book review ? JFK and the Unspeakable

- by Adrian Mack

James Douglass? book JFK and the Unspeakable is subtitled ?Why He
Died, and Why It Matters?.

[...]

Dallas County Deputy sheriff Roger Craig has long been one of the most
credible, and certainly most tragic witnesses in this area. Shortly after
the shooting, in Dealey Plaza, Craig saw either Oswald or his double climb
into a green Rambler station wagon driven by a ?husky looking Latin.?
Craig then encountered Oswald during his interrogation at the Dallas
Police HQ, where Douglass writes, ?It was too late ? for both the
government and Roger Craig. Deputy Sheriff Craig had seen and heard too
much.?

As an insider, Craig bore witness to a number of things that cause the
official story to unravel, and he talked. His career was destroyed by his
refusal to recant his own testimony. After a number of attempts on his
life, one of which left him disabled, Craig reportedly committed suicide
in 1975.

Bullspombleprofglidnoctobuns. You are ALL so full of it. Roger Craig was unstable from
childhood. His suicide had more to do with his own mental illness (and
being sucked into the GD conspiracy crap) than anything to do with JFK?s
actual death.

I am his child. I knew him. I knew the people who used him to promote
their theories. You are ALL full of it.

Noted in an earlier post...Roger Craig was not the only one that mentioned a Mauser rifle.

How could Craig's daughter know that he was "unstable from childhood"?
She couldn't have known him then ::)
Quite odd. With the tone of that above statement..who actually was the unstable one?
Until the assassination deal...he was an accredited law enforcement officer.
 
I doubt that she genuinely knew very many researchers.
