JFK ASSASSINATION ARGUMENTS
JOHN FIORENTINO SAID:
Cyril Wecht actually was first to promote this idea [of the Connally "lapel flip"] "officially" to the Rockefeller Commission. He got it from an associate of his.
DAVID VON PEIN SAID:
Yeah, and even when he was armed with this obvious visual sign of a bullet going through John Connally's body at precisely Z224, Dr. Wecht still holds steadfastly to his anti-SBT position, with Wecht insisting that the exiting bullet from JFK's throat could not possibly have gone on to strike Governor Connally.
Of course, it always helps if the conspiracy theorist in question--in this instance Dr. Cyril H. Wecht--decides (on his own, without a shred of evidence to support the notion) to place a mystery gunman in another location in Dealey Plaza, which Wecht has done by inventing a make-believe assassin who was shooting at President Kennedy from a lower floor on the west end of the Book Depository Building.
The funniest part of Dr. Wecht's anti-SBT spiel (which he has repeated numerous times throughout the years) is when he insists that the Warren Commission's test bullet that was fired into a human wrist bone (and ONLY into a wrist bone, without having gone through a simulated JFK neck OR a simulated Connally torso!) should somehow mimic the condition of Warren Commission Exhibit 399.
But what Dr. Wecht never tells his listening audience when he goes into that anti-SBT rant is that the Edgewood Arsenal/WC test bullet was not fired to re-create the Single-Bullet Theory or CE399.
How COULD that test bullet have been designed to reconstruct the SBT, Dr. Wecht? It wasn't fired through ANY other bodies before striking a wrist bone! Therefore, quite obviously, such a test bullet is certainly not going to exhibit the same post-firing characteristics and damage that CE399 possesses.
I'm always amazed when I hear Wecht ramble on and on about how those banged-all-to-hell Warren Commission test bullets are physical PROOF that the Single-Bullet Theory is a big steaming pile of excrement.
Although surely someone has done so in the past (besides me in the Internet posts HERE and HERE), I have never once heard anyone bother to correct Wecht's error regarding this matter, or confront him with it in any of his many interviews.
Not even Vincent Bugliosi set Wecht straight on this important subject about
the comparison between the test bullets and CE399 when Vince was provided
a golden opportunity to do so during his live radio debate with Dr. Wecht in
I was practically screaming at my radio while listening to that debate, trying desperately to get Vincent Bugliosi to say the following words to the esteemed Pittsburgh pathologist:
"DR. WECHT, THE TEST BULLETS DIDN'T GO THROUGH ENOUGH LAYERS OF FLESH TO SIMULATE WARREN COMMISSION EXHIBIT 399!!"
