***Sad But True: O'Reilly Says Oswald Shot JFK***
Stardate: 1210.5

Posted on 10/05/2012 7:36:02 PM PDT by The Wizard

While both my Aunt and I watch Bill O'Reilly every weeknight, I was very disappointed to hear him say that his new book says that Oswald shot JFK......

While I will continue to watch the show because there are things I like, my confidence and trust in the things he says has been greatly diminished.

You cannot shoot a man in the front from the back.

There is no need to go into everything we have written about here many times before, I just thought that rather than have some of you waste your money on the book, I'd share one of the erroneous conclusions contained within, and save you the time and money, it's just more cover up and misinformation, and I am truly sad to say so......

Yes well unfortunately Oswald DID shoot Kennedy, and even the “magic bullet” theory was correct.

No, Patton shot down Yamamoto, it was Germany that bombed Pearl Harbor because they were mad at Lithuania.

All you have to do is go to the book depository site in Dallas, to the same window where Oswald supposedly shot Kennedy, and see if you believe it was Oswald who did it.
Now maybe some sharpshooters could do it but Oswald was no sharpshooter. Oswald was a patsy - otherwise there was no reason to kill him.

And if you can just wait 3 months you can get any O’Really book at the thrift store for 50 cents. 6 months and you can get it out of the free bin in front.

Oswald was no sharpshooter

Written, no doubt, by someone who has never been trained by the Marine Corps as a rifleman.

The shots to kill Kennedy were no great feat, toots. Even someone trained by the Army to fire a rifle could have pulled it off.

Five years ago I would have disagree vehemently with your conclusion but since the picture of the vehicle configuration came out,I am in complete agreement. Especially with the veracity of the “magic bullet”.

I visited the MLK museum and studied the James Earl Ray items that were encased. It screamed Soviet agent to me.

My theory is that the Soviets were HOPING to incite a race riot in the US by offing him.

Wait, WHAT?! Patton didn’t shoot down Yamamoto. That was Kim Jong Il’s ghost from the future, brought back in time by a young General Pinochet. Doesn’t anyone read history books anymore?

I wouldn't buy any book from that blowhard O'Rielly, but Oswald shot Kennedy. Killed him too.

It was a difficult shot for somebody not trained as Oswald was.

-Chuck Norris built a time machine and went back in time to stop the JFK assassination. As Oswald shot, Chuck Norris met all three bullets with his beard, deflecting them. JFK’s head exploded out of sheer amazement.

JFK shot fom behind. When I watched the scientific nearly identical recreation the head moved and exploded in similar manner. Oswald was a lone wolf-—a leftist one at that.

you have no idea of what you speak.....the shooting that would have been necessary to shoot JFK from the TSBD was never duplicated.....never.

Especially since he was also shot from in front.

Good night kids

I always thought John Wilkes Boothe was a patsy while it was the man behind the curtain who shot Lincoln. That man was George McClellan. Hitler’s grandfather shot McKinley thinking Teddy Rooseveldt was a weakling who would not go to war. After all He was jsut a teddy bear of a man.

I love when these threads jump up. I have over three hundred books associated with the JFK assassination (obsession is my middle name) ... read all of them. And I firmly believe that Oswald didn’t kill the President.

I will hold in reserve who I think actually did, not the point of discussion on this thread.

Despite the pronouncements of the likes of Gerald Posner and O’Reilly, Oswald didn’t kill JFK ... too much evidence to the contrary.

Now maybe some sharpshooters could do it but Oswald was no sharpshooter.

"If I had to pick one man in the whole United States to shoot me, I'd pick Oswald. I saw the man shoot. There's no way he could have ever learned to shoot well enough to do what they accused him of doing in Dallas." - Sherman Cooley, who served with Oswald in the USMC (REASONABLE DOUBT, New York: Holt, Rinehart, and Winston, 1985, p. 99)

I used to believe in conspiracy theories, but reading "Case Closed" by Gerald Posner picks them apart one by one.

I have no doubt a lot of people WANTED JFK dead, but nope it was the crazy communist.

Oswald did shoot Kennedy.

There was nobody else.

The History Channel, back when it still did history had a show that pretty much put all the conspiracy theories to bed once and for all.

Oswald was a top notch expert marksman according to his Marine Corps marksmanship score cards. Take off your tinfoil hats people Oswald was the lone gunman who shot Kennedy. That does not mean that there was not a conspiracy, most likely by the Mafia if there was one, but all the physical evidence adds up to Oswald being the lone gunman firing the shots from the book depository window. If you want to read the definitive investigative book about it get “Case Closed” by Gerald Posner.

Think of it this way. How hard is it to shoot someone without anyone noticing? Exactly.

Lee Harvey was aiming for Jackie but missed.

Oswald was a movie buff, as proved by the fact that he was apprehended in a movie theater. Back in 1963 there was this belief that amateur film maker's with Super 8 cameras would replace Hollywood.

Oswald, as a movie lover, couldn't bear the thought of a future like this. When he went to work that day, he looked out the window to and saw his nemesis being wielded by Abraham Zapruder, and that's who he was aiming. Or rather what.

Which is funny, because the range NCOs and his battle buddies have repeatedly said he was one of the worst marksmen they've ever seen. And one of his qualification scores was within two points of being a no-go.

I like a lot about OReilly too. But he’s sure let America down by covering up, or at least refusing to inquire into, bHusseinO’s bona fides (if any )

Oswald did shoot JFK. He thought it up and did it all by himself with almost no advance notice of Kennedy’s route through Dallas or time to prepare.

He murdered President Kennedy with an entirely suitable surplus military rifle using domestically made ammunition. Firing his rounds at Kennedy at ranges between 44 and 88 yards, it was a dead simple shot for a man who learned marksmanship in the USMC.

The only conspiracy in the fact that Oswald murdered JFK is that legions of commie liberal hoaxsters have successfully persuaded a large segment of not very inquisitive people that any number of shadowy persons killed Kennedy for a wide range of absurd reasons rather than the truth that an unstable left wing whack job named Lee Harvey Oswald was alone in pulling the trigger that day.
