Challenge to lone gunman theory
By Betsy Mason
CONTRA COSTA TIMES

Chuck Todd/Contra Costa Times
More than four decades after his death, John F. Kennedy's assassination remains the hottest cold case in U.S. history, and the clues continue to trickle in. Now Lawrence Livermore Laboratory scientists say a key piece of evidence supporting the lone gunman theory should be thrown out.

A new look at clues gleaned from studies of crime-scene bullet fragments shows they may have been misinterpreted.

"It basically shatters what some people call the best physical evidence around," said chemist Pat Grant, director of the lab's Forensic Science Center.

Grant and Livermore Lab metallurgist Erik Randich found that the chemical "fingerprints" used to identify which bullets the fragments came from are actually more like run-of-the-mill tire tracks than one-of-a-kind fingerprints.

"I've spoken with people on both sides of the conspiracy divide and there's no question but that (Randich and Grant's) work is going to be very difficult, if not outright impossible, to refute," said Gary Aguilar, a San Francisco ophthalmologist and single-bullet skeptic who has studied the Kennedy assassination for more than a decade. "It looks impregnable."

The government's claim that Lee Harvey Oswald alone killed Kennedy spawned a vitriolic debate between conspiracy theorists and lone gunman supporters that rages to this day.

In 1964, the Warren Commission, established by President Lyndon B. Johnson to investigate the assassination, concluded that Oswald fired just three shots from the Texas School Book Depository in Dallas: The first missed entirely. The second passed through the president's neck, into Texas Governor John Connally's body under his right arm, out through his chest and then splintered his wrist and wounded his left thigh. The third fatally hit Kennedy in the head.

I have never believed the lone gunman theory. But then I never believed Bush took Florida in 2000 or Ohio in 2004. Never believed 9/11 couln't be prevented. Never believed we should have gone into Iraq.

Wonder why neocons don't like non-believers...

If they did they would have to admit that they were wrong.

That is involved, but sounds more plausable than what we have been told for years.

Do you have links that we could follow to that information?

The first shot was low caliber shot which hit him in the throat. He then grabbed his throat and tilted his head some. Thus he held his head still. This give them the opportunity to hit him while his head was still, which they did. Some people believe the next shot was a special (hand made) mercury filled bullet. Anyway ...


Four Short Videos -- Watch them and see what you think. Did the driver turn and shoot P-JFK with a pistol? You be the judge.

Later, some some young man came out with a video which he says debunks the the videos above. If I can find it I'll add below.
