As can be seen in Warren Commission Exhibit #903 (pictured below), the
"Single-Bullet Theory" trajectory works just fine. In fact, it works
absolutely perfectly. Which would be virtually impossible if MULTIPLE
bullets had actually done the damage to the two victims (JFK & John
Connally) that the Warren Commission said was very likely caused by
only one single bullet (CE399).
And the pointer/rod in Exhibit 903 is just where the autopsy photo of John Kennedy's back shows the wound to be located, with the exit wound exactly
at the "tie knot" via CE903, just exactly where JFK sustained damage from
the flight of a bullet.
And look at the angle -- DOWNWARD (17 DEGREES), FROM BACK TO FRONT. Without a doubt:
Also: When CTers attempt to use the "opposite angle" photos that are similar in nature to CE903 [ONE, TWO, THREE], which show Arlen Specter holding the rod a little above where he is holding it in CE903 itself....
....the CTers who claim that something is "fishy" or "misleading" are
doing so without ever having determined exactly for what purpose those
other photos were taken.*
* = Oh, I know they were taken the same day as CE903, but it's unfair to
say that they depict the Warren Commission's SBT trajectory precisely,
because those opposite-angle pictures are not official Warren Commission exhibits like CE903. [RELATED LINK]
Let's listen to the testimony of the man who took the photo we see in
CE903 (Lyndal Shaneyfelt):
ARLEN SPECTER -- "I now hand you a photograph which has been marked as
Commission Exhibit No. 903 and ask you if you know who the
LYNDAL L. SHANEYFELT -- "Yes; I took this photograph."
MR. SPECTER -- "When was that photograph taken?"
MR. SHANEYFELT -- "It was taken Sunday afternoon, May 24, 1964."
MR. SPECTER -- "Is there a white string which is apparent in the
background of that photograph?"
MR. SHANEYFELT -- "That is correct."
MR. SPECTER -- "What is the angle of declination of that string?"
MR. SHANEYFELT -- "That string was placed along the wall by the
surveyor at an angle of 17 degrees-43'-30''." ....
MR. SPECTER -- "Did the surveyor make that placement in your
MR. SHANEYFELT -- "He did."
MR. SPECTER -- "Were the stand-ins for President Kennedy and Governor
Connally positioned in the same relative positions as those occupied
by President Kennedy and Governor Connally depicted in the Zapruder
MR. SHANEYFELT -- "Yes; these positions were approximately the
position of the President and Governor Connally in the Zapruder films
in the area around frame 225 as they go behind the signboard and as
they emerge from the signboard."
MR. SPECTER -- "Was the rod which is held in that photograph
positioned at an angle as closely parallel to the white string as it
could be positioned?"
MR. SHANEYFELT -- "Yes."
MR. SPECTER -- "And through what positions did that rod pass?"
MR. SHANEYFELT -- "The rod passed through a position on the back of
the stand-in for the President at a point approximating that of the
entrance wound, exited along about the knot of the tie or the button
of the coat or button of the shirt, and the end of the rod was
inserted in the entrance hole on the back of Governor Connally's coat
which was being worn by the stand-in for Governor Connally."
MR. SPECTER -- "And was Governor Connally's stand-in seated in the
position where the point of exit would have been below the right
nipple at the approximate point described by Governor Connally's
MR. SHANEYFELT -- "That is correct."
Anti-SBT conspiracy theorists simply cannot fight the "SBT perfection"
that exists in CE903....
As mentioned by Shaneyfelt in his WC testimony, the stand-in
representing Governor Connally is wearing the same jacket that JBC
wore on 11/22/63....and that pointer/rod being held by Mr. Specter,
which is coming out of JFK's tie knot, is being placed right into the
exact bullet hole in that jacket in CE903.
1.) Downward (back-to-front) angle of the bullet path (17.72 degrees) =
2.) Upper-back JFK wound = Perfect.
3.) JFK exit wound at tie knot = Perfect.
4.) Entry wound on JBC's back = Perfect (with Specter's metal rod
being jammed into the same hole on JBC's exact jacket where a bullet
just happened to penetrate Connally's suit jacket on 11/22/63, by
5.) Exit wound on JBC's chest (under right nipple) = Perfect via CE903
No "zig-zag" path.
No "magic" bullet.
No "SBT conspiracy".
In short: CE903 = S.B.T. PERFECTION!
