On the Zapruder film JFK's head moves forward several inches because of the impact of the bullet from the rear and only THEN does it move backward and to his left. That was because of the neuro-muscular spasm that occurred and the "jet effect" of his head contents spraying out TO THE FRONT!
If he was hit from the front or the side where is the exit wound? Huh?! HUH??!!

yes yes yes...I do not see his head move forward; however, I will watch the video again. What I see is Kennedy who has been shot in the throat leaning forward when the last shot hit him. His head then jets sideways. In reference to the location of the exit wound, where is the gaping hole in the front of his head. Had he been shot from behind, there would have been a gapping hole in the front of his head. I am a chemical engineer (physics knowledge) who served in an Army combat arms unit (infantry experience). I have seen the results of a bullet to the head. Depending on the caliber of the round and the velocity of the bullet, the results will very; however, given the caliber and speed of the round in this case, the round would have blown a large hole in the exit wound on any "hard" surface. There is no large wound on either the front or the back of the head. This should be of concern to anyone who is familiar with ballistics. The exit wound in the neck is what would be expected since the neck is primarily soft tissue.
If you talk with anyone with a CSI background, you will learn that the "splatter" will go in all directions with the majority moving in the same direction of the force. If you watch someone do a cannonball in the pool at an angle. You will see some splash to the rear but most will be to the front where the momentum is directed. What about the "jet effect" to the rear where Mrs. Kennedy was picking up material? What was that from??
Finally, I believe with the information we have today, we can state positively that there was more than one shooter. Where the speculation comes in is who did it. I believe that this we may never know. You hear all sorts of speculation...but that is just what it is speculation.
