Skip to comments.Bullet analysis casts doubt on lone gunman in JFK assassination (Dallas Morning News)

........... The professor of statistics at Texas A&M University organized a six-member team that compared the composition of bullet fragments from the JFK shooting with other bullets from the same manufacturer.
The group found that those fragments weren't nearly as rare as the government's expert witness concluded in 1976, when Dr. Vincent P. Guinn determined that all five fragments came from two bullets fired by Lee Harvey Oswald. A third shot missed.
"The claim was made that those five fragments could only have come from two bullets," Dr. Spiegelman said. "Our research showed it could have been two or more.
"And if it is more than two, there is an increased likelihood that someone else provided one of them."
....Hence the title of the group's paper: "Chemical and Forensic Analysis of JFK Assassination Bullet Lots: Is a Second Shooter Possible?" The team was honored by the American Statistical Association with its 2008 Statistics in Chemistry award.
The study doesn't say there were two or more gunmen, only that the single-gunman theory can't be supported by science.

Good points. Well taken.
Marine with a rifle?
I won't even go there.
Stop insulting yourself. Peter Jennings didn’t MAKE the ABC special, he read a teleprompter for a living, remember? You can google and find the TV show in question.
I have mentioned the name of the book “Case Closed” by Gerald Posner many times already. You just came on to the thread to spit fire and I keep telling you to read the book “Case Closed” and you keep spitting fire, looking for a fight.
The Jennings documentary was in response to the 3 new History Channel installments of ‘The Men Who Killed Kennedy’, which basically solved the case, and documented the conspiracy. Those segments are now banned, including DVD sales. Sounds alot like the ‘Path To 9/11’, doesn't it?
Garrison had impeccable credentials and actually believed the govt line the first few years after the assassination. It was after insiders and witnesses told him what was going on he initiated the Shaw case. He was later proved right about Shaw, and the connections to the assassination. He went after LBJ for sealing the records, etc. IMO an American hero.
In a time when the 20 conspirators have been published from 'intel' records (search book Regicide) on Amazon, I find it hard to take your post seriously.
Fine, I shall continue to live in reality.
