"With regard to JFK's assasination, I used to be extremely skeptical before spending time some of the Cuban sections of Tampa. Now I'm more inclined to listen."
Because I made movies of State Visits for Kennedy, and left Washington October 22, one month before the assassination, and watched every minute of the coverage at home on leave, and left for the west coast on the day of his funeral, I have read a lot about Oswald and Kennedy. I have also seen recreations of the shots fired, using the Carcano, the same 6.5mm ammunition. The shots Oswald made, in the time he made them, are eminently possible. Remember, Oswald was a Marine rifleman. He missed General Walker in Texas because the glass window deflected the bullet.
The bullet that went through Kennedy and wounded John Connally in both the arm and leg, was not "pristine", as the press so eagerly reported; it was misshapen, bent, and had rifling marks on it. Going through both Connally's arm and leg, it could very well have been spent by then, and fell out of his clothing on the stretcher where it was found. I have met Connally, right after he was accidentally bayoneted over the eye by a sailor whose piece he was inspecting. He was a large framed, robust man, who could have absorbed a grave wound(s) and survived.
I don't claim to know Oswald's motivations, but am convinced he acted alone. There was no one on the grassy knoll who fired a weapon. Echoes are funny things. Kennedy leaned back when hit in the neck because that is the way people who are hit by gunfire react. He was not shot from the front. A forensic pathologist named Fackler, I think, wrote the definitive book on the subject, without all the speculation by that idiot prosecutor in New Orleans. Clay Shaw was not convicted. Sometimes, things are in fact as they seem to be. Stan
