After the JFK assassination, it was obvious to many that the events as reported just didn't pass the smell test.
- The assassin is immediately apprehended, but while he is held in custody, surrounded by police, a man walks up to him with a revolver and shoots him in the stomach.
- There will be no trial for either murder, no investigation, because the man who shoots him is dying of cancer.
- The President is shot from the back, but his head flies backward under the impact.
- A single bullet pierced him in 3 places, then went on to injure Gov Connally who was standing next to him, then fell conveniently out onto the operating table in the hospital two hours later, looking fresh as a daisy.
- The assassin is crazed by his own communist leanings, but the man he assassinates is actively seeking rapprochement with the Soviet Union and an end to the Cold War.
So they had to have a Commission with the prestige of Earl Warren behind it to inscribe their fairy tale where it could not be challenged.The New York Times has been instrumental from the beginning in bolstering credibility for a story that has never been able to stand up to scrutiny. Today, they have published yet another rehash of the Lone Nut theory. Of course, they prominently invoke the phrase "conspiracy theorists" to dismiss those who investigate the truth of the situation. They pretend we do not know that the very term "conspiracy theory" was coined by the CIA in response to the crisis of no confidence in the Warren Commission report.
Last year, the President's personal physician came out of the woodwork to tell that there had been another bullet, and that he had seen it, that he wrote about it to the Warren Commission, that they didn't want to hear his testimony. (Read about it at WhoWhatWhy.)
James Douglass's 2008 book is the best account we have today of who really killed JFK and why.
