USA Today Op-Ed: JFK Conspiracy Deniers, In Denial?
|November 21, 2013||Posted by Staff under Corruption, Crime, Politics|
Although polls from 1964 on clearly signal the public’s distrust of the official story, the mainstream media have never given up telling us how superstitious or illogical the common people are in this belief.
The single bullet theory allows for one bullet, fired from the sixth floor, on a downward trajectory, to enter Kennedy’s back and then move upward, out his throat and into Texas Gov. John Connally to his front, where it zigs and zags breaking two bones and creating seven wounds. Now, I’ve been in the infantry and I’ve seen enough combat to tell you that in all the craziness of war, this “Alice in Wonderland” scenario defies physics and common sense. JFK should be going forward when he receives that shot.
More than 50 witnesses testified at the time to the Warren Commission that they heard or saw a shot coming from that fence area to the front of the president.
The Assassination Records Review Board (1994-1998) found that over 40 witnesses in two locations saw a large avulsive (i.e. penetrating outward) wound in the rear of JFK’s skull. This wound again indicates an exit wound from a shot to the front. Conclusion: The president was shot from at least two sides, front and back — not one location.
An accidental film made that day, the Zapruder film, shows a sequence of motions that indicate five, probably six shots fired. It also shows that when the president is shot in the back by the “single bullet,” that he’s moving forward while Connally is still holding his Stetson hat, which is impossible if Connally was hit by the same bullet in his right wrist. The governor himself said he was not hit by the same bullet as Kennedy and added, “I do not for one second believe the conclusions of the Warren Commission.”
Is denial some form of American exceptionalism, by which our politics are unflawed by such corruption? Is this why the media, with very few exceptions, have not allowed any serious presentation of the evidence against their official story from qualified pathologists, scientists, photographic and ballistics experts, and doctors who disagree?
As Friday approaches, please take a moment to remember that no professional marksman has replicated the Warren Commission scenario with Oswald’s flawed rifle. To my knowledge, there have been at least four attempts with professionals to simulate the shooting without that rifle. No person ever achieved what the commission said Oswald did on the first try, i.e., attain two of three direct hits in the head and shoulder area to Kennedy in six seconds. This alleged shooting has been achieved only with computer simulations.
Ed. Notes: If the government were not afraid of the truth, why weren’t neutral investigators put in charge of the investigation? Why did their Navy doctor destroy evidence? And why did private investigators have to be the ones to release the Zapruder film?
