JFK ASSASSINATION ARGUMENTS
ROB CAPRIO SAID:
Of course it [Lee Bowers' 11/22/63 affidavit] doesn't say anything about the men behind the fence since they never asked him the source of the shots!
DAVID VON PEIN SAID:
Rob seems to think that Bowers was under some kind of give-and-take INTERROGATION when he wrote out and signed this affidavit on November 22nd.
That affidavit was a voluntary STATEMENT made by Lee E. Bowers Jr. on the day he witnessed the events in Dealey Plaza on 11/22/63. He wasn't "asked" ANYTHING with respect to that affidavit. He was merely writing down what happened in his own words. It wasn't a question-and-answer session.
And it's important to remember that Bowers, in that above affidavit, on the day the shooting occurred (when things were certainly FRESHER in his mind than they were at any other time after the assassination, including his little talk with Mark Lane in 1966), said ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about seeing any men behind any picket fence in the area.
In other words, if some men were there on 11/22, they were so UNIMPORTANT to Lee Bowers that whatever they were doing near the fence wasn't even important enough to jot down in his voluntary statement that was written within hours of seeing any such men near the Knoll's picket fence.
But Bowers did spend ample time explaining all about the three cars that circled the parking lot before the shooting. Obviously, THAT activity regarding the vehicles was much more important and significant to Mr. Bowers when it came to relating any pertinent details about the events of that day than were any of the men whom he might have seen hanging around the picket fence.
Conspiracy theorists might be wise to ask themselves why, in Lee Bowers' mind (and in his November 22 affidavit), the information about CARS CIRCLING THE PARKING LOT trumped and superceded (in importance) A MAN SHOOTING AT THE PRESIDENT WITH A GUN NEAR THE PICKET FENCE?
Food for (Bowers) thought anyway.
