Posted on 02/04/2009 11:49:12 AM PST by patriotgal1787
Do you believe that the November 22, 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy was the result of shots fired by a lone assassin from the 6th floor of the Texas School Book Depository?
Or are you one of many who believe it was a conspiracy that involved the highest levels of our government?
The case is not closed regarding what actually happened on that fateful day.
The late President Gerald R. Ford, the last surviving member of the commission admitted that the CIA destroyed pertinent documents, covering up the investigation of the assassination, in a recently published book.
Tim Miller, the book publisher who helped author the text, believes there was a conspiracy and that Ford knew even more than he told his publisher and the world. Ford shares many other breath-taking admissions with the reader in this, his final book, written three years prior to his own death.
What did Ford say about the "single bullet theory," the Zapruder film, and Oliver Stones movie, JFK?
"Who killed John F. Kennedy?"
Tim Miller joins us to discuss tonight at 9 p.m. ET -- link to the show here.
Twas Lee Harvey Oswald, my friend. :)
doesn’t say anything about selecting the route.
Cuber wouldn't be ruled by communists if the US government had finished Castro off years ago in an action designed to win.
It was about selecting the destination. The route depended on the destination. That’s what I said earlier.
Would have been a little difficult, it was about 5-and-a-1/2 years before my time.
I'm just saying that time was not an issue, as, if he was the shooter, he could have easily traversed 4 flights in a matter of seconds. Lack of witnesses was not my point.
Read it before. His 'conclusions' are based on some presupposition that the Groden 'doctored' photos are indication of some sinister conspiracy.
For one, his artice has a number of 'We have no proof that the final frontal shot was from a Carcano nor do we know what bullets were used thus the following is just academic speculation as to what is possible. " and " I have never shot taped melons like Alverez" or this little gem "this would be a fifth bullet which is not supported by existing photo and medical evidence"
His math is correct for the most part on the kinetic energies, BUT he does not take into account
the movement of the vehicle(15 mph vs 3mph he states),
the direction of the 'jet effect', which didn't really occur,
the physiology of the human body when it loses all muscle control,
the effect of wearing that horrible back brace on the same body
the loss of velocity from the TSBD to the target (approx 1/3)
or by using the drawing below, how that '45' bullet he states is used arrived where it is supposedly found.
And no matter what the conjecture is from the article...this is not a bullet, much less a 45.
The bottom line in all of this is simple.
1. Oswald acted alone.
2. Some sinister encompassing conspiracy of Cubans, the mob, and the CIA, with untold numbers of people knowing about it, but not talking all these years, killed Kennedy.
And there is one very important item that is overlooked in almost all the books written. Posner got it right and it shows in Zapruder.
Abraham Zapruder had vertigo, his secretary supported him as he shot the film.
Each time a shot is fired the camera jiggles in reaction, and loses focus. It occurs 3 times, and 3 times only.
If only everyone read “Case Closed” we wouldn’t need to deal with this s**t time and time again.
They base their judgement on what Kennedy was, and not on what Oswald had become. A failure at everything.
Who verified that the hand writing and voice were authentic. I so no mention of either in the article. Who besides the son has seen these papers and tape?
By all accounts E. Howard Hunt was a selfish, grandiose man, a narcissist, who was frequently very cruel to this “damaged” son of his. Maybe this was his last cruelty.
I really don't understand the point you are making about Connely or are you just trying to state a fact?
Obviously, the best pick for a patsy for those who really did gain from Kennedys death.
Kennedy had issued an Executive order for the cease of Viet Nam and the immediate pull out. The first thing Johnson did—while on the plane—was take out of his briefcase his first Executive Order and SIGN IT ON THE PLANE—to rescind Kennedys order. Coincidence? No, I dont think so. Johnson knew. He knew it was going to happen, otherwise, why did he have the papers already prepared? Too much stuff doesnt add up for Oswald to be the only player. He lacked the intellect, and he lacked the resources to put that together alone. He was there and he was a player, but he wasnt alone. That’s my story and I am sticking to it.
The decision was made to make the two turns, one on Hudson and then a greater than 90 degree on Elm St, both of which are against SS policy, and connects directly to the Stemmons Frwy.
The route had been published a few days before.
Ah, yes, the dreaded “GRASSY KNOLL”
Someone raised the suspicion about who chose the route. I'm pointing out that the choice of route was dependent on the destination, and that was insisted on by the governor, who was also a victim.
As for being more than one way to get there, look at a map of Dallas. If you want to go from Love Field to the Trade Mart while having a motorcade down Main St, there really were no choices involved.
This is not true. There is no such order.
There is no route from Main St to the freeway. You say it would have had to cross a median, like it was a choice. It would have had to jump the curb and drive over a raised divider.
I always found it odd, that the motorcade route was so concvenient for Oswald. Didn't he start work there before the trip was planned ot at least before the route was known? Or is it alleged that he heard about the route and then decided to take advantage of it?
Was it a coincidence or just some quirk of fate?
Thanx. I knew the second part.
Means: He had the rifle. He had already taken a shot at Edwin Walker with it.
Motive: He was trying to prove to Marina what a 'great man' he was, and after their argument the previous weekend, he was set to show her. His trip out to see her during the workweek (which he had never done before), and pick up the rifle, days before the motorcade, indicates pre-meditation.
Opportunity: He knew the route would go right by his place of work, and he could set things up to hide his rifle and where to shoot from. He had two days to plan it.
The killing of Kennedy is not about what Johnson did after, or that Kennedy was even the one killed.
The real story is about Oswald.
A lonely, lowly, pathetic example of uneducated, unsophisticated, failure at everything he attempted, individual who wanted greatness, but would never achieve it in any normal capacity.
