JFK ASSASSINATION ARGUMENTS
(PART 79)


ROBERT CAPRIO SAID:

>>> [Quoting Jacqueline Kennedy:] "I was trying to hold his hair on. But from the *front there was nothing.* I suppose there must have been, but from the back you could see, you know, you were trying to hold his hair on, and his skull on." [Close Quote.] A little different when you read the parts that were censored with (reference to wounds deleted), huh?" <<<


DAVE VON PEIN SAID:

Kinda sounds to me like Jackie's describing a hole at the FRONT of
JFK's head, via these words (which I have seen before, btw) -- "FROM
THE FRONT THERE WAS NOTHING".

But Jackie's very few comments about the wounds are a bit muddled and
are far from conclusive. The Warren Commission missed a golden
opportunity to prove that the large exit wound in the President's head
was at the right-front instead of in the rear of the head when the WC
didn't ask Jackie more questions about the precise location of the
wound.

Jackie was certainly one of the very best witnesses to JFK's wounds,
but we lost the chance to get more info out of her because the WC
refused to ask her the proper questions about the wounds, out of
deference to her personal feelings. A pity.


>>> "I don't see a grief-stricken wife rearranging the head of her nearly-dead husband." <<<

Even though that's exactly what she said she did, huh? So I guess Rob
must think Jackie was a liar too when she said the following to the
Warren Commission on June 5, 1964:

"I was trying to hold his hair on. You [meaning Jackie herself] were trying to hold his hair on, and his skull on." -- Jacqueline Kennedy


REPRISE:

>>> "I don't see a grief-stricken wife rearranging the head of her nearly-dead husband." <<<

But most conspiracy theorists have no problem whatsoever believing
that that same person (Jackie Kennedy), who just saw her husband's
head split wide open by a rifle bullet a few inches from her very own
face, had the wherewithal and the desire to climb onto the trunk of
the moving limousine in order to retrieve a grisly piece of her
husband's head. Right?


>>> "All the personnel at Parkland, the photographer, the men who prepared JFK for the trip to D.C. and the embalmer all disagree with your assessment. Are they all lying?" <<<

No. Merely all mistaken. These authenticated-as-"unaltered" photos [and X-ray]
prove that fact:










DVP SAID EARLIER:

"And Rosemary Willis' actions--and later words--are valuable too. "I stopped when I heard the shot." -- Rosemary Willis"


ROB THEN SAID:

>>> "Cite this source please." <<<


DVP NOW SAYS:

Gerald Posner's "Case Closed" (1994 paperback edition); Page 321; Plus
Footnote #18 for Chapter 14, which leads to Page 546 (the "Notes"
section of "Case Closed"). Footnote #18 reads: "David Lui, "The Little
Girl Must Have Heard," The Dallas Times Herald, June 3, 1979, H-3."


>>> "It was simply a miss and the trajectory matches the Dal-Tex building as much as it does the west window of the TSBD." <<<

Cite the source for this please.


>>> "It has been shown that the first shot fired sounded like a firecracker and hit the street short of the car, not all the way down by Tague. Explain this if you can." <<<

Sure thing:

Bullet #1 of 3 (at approx. Z160) comes out of Lee Harvey Oswald's
#C2766 Mannlicher-Carcano rifle at about 2,200fps....the missile
strikes a portion of the oak tree in front of the Book Depository,
causing the bullet to break into at least two separate sections.

One section of the broken bullet strikes the concrete on Elm Street,
just behind the Presidential limousine, while another portion of
Oswald's fragmented missile deflects upward slightly (and to the
right), causing that section of the bullet to hit the curb on Main
Street, sending either bullet fragments or concrete fragments up into
the air and into the face of bystander James Tague, who was standing
near the Underpass.


Footnote:

If Oswald was using the telescopic sight for this first (missed) shot,
due to the scope's "High And To The Right" mis-alignment, this could be
a possible reason for the first shot having missed the limousine and
striking the tree, with the upper branches of that tree being located,
indeed, "high and to the right" of Oswald's aiming point at the time
he would have fired that shot (as can be seen in CE875, HERE and HERE).
