More Responses to the Military Surgeon's Letter

From Paul Craig Roberts Website

The question before us is not whether people were shot or not, but if they were shot, why the crisis actors carrying pretend wounded into a hospital and why unrealistically quick recoveries from gunshot trauma? I have the names and email addresses of the respondents, but do not publish their names as helpful information should not be repaid by bringing them controversy.

This from a person in a hospital trauma unit:

"Regarding trauma patients hit by gunfire from high-powered rifles -- I work at the local hospital and most gunshot victims are hit by lower-powered small arms fire (pistols, birdshot, buckshot) versus military (5.56 or 7.62 NATO) calibers, and most of these patients are in the trauma ICU for at least 1-2 weeks and sometimes up to a few months. Many of these also end up dying or at the very least becoming even more acutely ill from hospital-acquired infections, many of which are acquired during surgeries or from mechanical ventilators."

This from the UK:

"As a retired anesthesiologist, my observations of the victims shown in the media/online videos concur with those of the military surgeon's in his letter. I cannot say whether anyone was shot in Las Vegas but the victims we have been shown in the media are unreal." MD, DCH, FRCA, FFPM (UK)

Below is a reader's report on the effect on US Rep. Steve Scalise of being shot once in the hip. Compare this reality to the young woman chatting away with the presstitute three days after being shot in the hip and "nearly paralyzed."

"Hip and femur were shattered from the bullet. Scalise almost bled to death lying right there on the ground. I read previously that he was already in shock when he arrived at the hospital. He had several surgeries to control bleeding and infection, do reconstruction of his innards, etc., and these surgeries continued for some time, i.e., they all weren't all done the next day or several days after. He has steel and metal plates inside his body now holding bones together. He also spent months in rehabilitation, and now walks with a walker."

Note that these extensive injuries, which he almost died of several times over weeks, were caused BY A SINGLE GUNSHOT WOUND, A SINGLE BULLET.

Here is a short excerpt from a CNN article.

"Scalise was in critical condition after suffering damage to internal organs, and his injuries will require additional operations, according to a MedStar Washington Hospital Center medical update late Wednesday.
'Congressman Steve Scalise sustained a single rifle shot to the left hip. The bullet traveled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding,' MedStar said in a statement put out by Scalise's office. 'He underwent immediate surgery, and an additional procedure to stop bleeding. He has received multiple units of blood transfusion. His condition is critical, and he will require additional operations. We will provide periodic updates.'"

Here is an excerpt from a Wikipedia article. Note that it says that weeks after the shooting, he had to be readmitted to intensive care:

"Scalise was shot in the hip and was evacuated by medical helicopter to MedStar Washington Hospital Center, where he underwent surgery. The hospital reported that after the bullet struck his hip, it traveled across his pelvis -- fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding.[29] His condition was initially listed as 'critical.' He received multiple blood transfusions and underwent several surgeries to repair internal damage and stop the bleeding.[30][1] His condition was changed to 'serious' on June 17.[31] It further improved to 'fair' on June 21,[32] though he was readmitted to intensive care on July 5 due to concerns of infection."[33]

Here are other articles from Washington Times and CBS News.

To sum up, if the acoustic evidence is correct of bullets hitting the ground, then bullets were fired. Therefore, it is likely people were hit. Why then are what clearly seem to be crisis actors employed? Is it possible that the alert part of the population is being given counter-factual information in order to condition us to accept official stories despite unresolved contradictions?

In other words, are the contradictions intentionally introduced? Is the real conspiracy one of establishing official stories as fact regardless of evidence? The result would be to classify appeals to evidence as a "conspiracy theory."
