(PART 132)



Guaranteed fact: Vincent Bugliosi will never debate me on this stuff. He's been challenged elsewhere and said he was too busy writing a new book to discuss the case any further. I call that cutting-and-running.


I would call it not wanting to waste one's time on some conspiracy theorist's unsupportable anti-SBT theory.

Another "guaranteed fact":

The conspiracy theorists will never ever come up with a scenario that comes anywhere close to matching the Single-Bullet Theory in every important category (if you can even get a CTer to spell out their theory on a bullet-by-bullet basis, that is, which rarely occurs, because when it does, the conspiracist is laughed out of town, due to the absurdity of their miraculous bullet-disappearing conspiracy-slanted conjecture that has multiple bullets behaving in ways that so closely mimicked Mannlicher-Carcano Bullet #CE399 that every official U.S. Government investigation was fooled into thinking these multiple bullets that riddled the victims full of holes could be reconciled into the SBT).

But instead of accepting the obvious (i.e., the SBT) as a fact, CTers like Pat Speer will go to great lengths and write thousands upon thousands of words on Internet websites attempting to discredit a rock-solid fact (the SBT).

Go figure.

VB Instant Replay (deservedly so):

"With respect to the second shot fired in Dealey Plaza, the "single-bullet THEORY" is an obvious misnomer. Though in its incipient stages it was but a theory, the indisputable evidence is that it is now a proven FACT, a wholly supported conclusion. .... And no sensible mind that is also informed can plausibly make the case that the bullet that struck President Kennedy in the upper right part of his back did not go on to hit Governor Connally." -- Vincent Bugliosi; Pages 489-490 of "Reclaiming History" (c.2007)


Bonus VB-isms:

"The whole issue of what stretcher the bullet [CE399] was found on, Connally's or some unknown person's, is a giant nonissue. Since we know that the bullet was fired from Oswald's Carcano rifle, and we know it wasn't found on Kennedy's stretcher, it had to have been found on Connally's stretcher." -- Page 431 of "Reclaiming History" (Endnotes)


"We can have all the confidence in the world, by an examination of the physical evidence and the utilization of common sense, that [a single bullet wounded both JFK and Governor Connally]. When you can establish the single-bullet theory by reference to evidence other than the [Zapruder] film, you necessarily know that the film itself cannot, by definition, show something else. .... Since we KNOW Kennedy and Connally were not hit by separate bullets, we know, before we even look at the film, that it CANNOT show otherwise." -- Pages 457-458 of "Reclaiming History"
