Those Lone Nuters who believe Oswald killed JFK by himself who seem to have  time on their hands, having already wrapped up the case, should be able to answer the following questions. I started out shooting for 50 but have come up with a few more. 

 

50 Questions that can and should be answered about the assassination of President Kennedy 

 

http://jfkcountercoup.blogspot.com/2013/09/50-questions-that-can-be-answered.html

 

 

A reporter who covered the assassination for the New York Herald Tribune recently self-published a book in which he says that he had 25 questions that to him the Warren Commission Report answered. Well that got me thinking....

 

50 Questions – Regarding the Assassination of President Kennedy – 

 

Fifty years after the assassination, these reasonable questions can and should be answered.especially by those who believe Oswald acted alone. 

 

1)      How many shots were fired, which one missed and which one was the head shot?

 

2)      From what direction(s) did the shots come from?

 

3)      Where did the bullets come from? Bugliosi says that Oswald bought them, but there's no evidence of that. Where did they come from? You can’t buy one bullet, you buy bullets like cigarettes in packs and cartons and boxes, each of which has a tracking number that can tell you where and when it was sold and shipped. There were three shell casings found on the floor of the Sixth Floor Sniper’s Nest window and one unused bullet in the chamber.

 

4)      Where did the rifle come from? How come nobody at the post office recalls handing the weapons over the counter to Oswald?

 

5)      Where did the leather strap come from? A USAF military sidearm holster strap that had to come from somewhere, from someone who knew the owner of the rifle. 

 

6)      Why is there a scope attached that wasn’t used by the Sixth Floor Sniper?

 

7)      What fingerprints were found on the a) rifle, B) shells, c) boxes, d) soda bottles, e) windows, f) doors, g) other locations within the TSBD/fingerprints that could be connected to Oswald or others?.

 

8)      How did the rifle get into the building without B. W.  Frazer recognizing it?

 

9)      What became of the “confession” that the DPD tried to get B. W. Frazer to sign and what did it say?

 

10)  Who else besides Oswald was involved in the Walker shooting, and why didn’t Oswald prepare for JFK like he did for Walker – taking photos of the scene, keeping notebook, leaving note with instructions for Marina, etc.?

 

11)  Did George diMohrenschildt mention Oswald to the CIA officers he met in NYC two weeks after he identifed Oswald as the Walker shooter?

 

12)  How did a German magazine learn of Oswald’s connection to the Walker shooting before the DPD?

 

13)  Who were the McCurley Brothers – who allegedly assisted Oswald in distributing FPCC leaflets in New Orleans, and did they know a man named Hidel?

 

14)  How did the rifle get from Dallas to New Orleans in April of 1963 and back again in September 1963?

 

15)  Why weren’t Ruth and Michael Paine called to testify under oath by the HSCA or ARRB or today?

 

16)  Who were the twin Hale brothers, sons of Dallas FBI agent, seen by FBI agents breaking into the apartment of Mob moll and JFK mistress Judyth Campbell Exner, one of whom would later kill John Connally’s daughter?

 

17)  If Oswald killed JFK to obtain notoriety, as alleged, then why did he deny committing the deed?

 

18)  If Oswald was seen on the first floor of the TSBD at 12:15 pm, then who was the person seen with a rifle on the Sixth Floor at that time?

 

19)  If Oswald was seen by Baker on the other side of the closed Second Floor lunchroom door at 12:31 pm, if he went through that door as he would have to do if he was the assassin, how come that Roy Truly, ahead of Baker, didn’t see him, as he should have?

 

20)  If Baker saw Oswald through the window of the closed Second Floor Lunchroom door, isn’t it more logical that he entered the three door vestibule through the south door, as he said he did, and therefore was not the Sixth Floor Sniper?

 

21)  If Oswald was on the second floor when Baker and Truly encountered him at 12:31 pm, who was the man in the Sixth Floor Sniper window moving boxes around a few minutes after the last shot?

 

22)  If Oswald was not the Sixth Floor Sniper, then who was the man in the white shirt and bald spot on the top of his head who shot at JFK from that window and how did he get out of the building?

 

23)  How come Oswald, if he had just shot the president, deposited the rifle behind boxes and ran down four flights of steps to get to the Second Floor Lunchroom before Baker – a minute and half – 90 seconds after the last shot – how come he wasn’t out of breath from running and hyper from having just blown JFK’s brains out, but instead his demeanor was cool, calm and collected, just as he was 30 seconds later when he encountered Mrs. Reid. After the Walker shooting Oswald was still hyper and excited hours later. Was Oswald the “cool” assassin, or wasn’t he the killer at all?

 

24)  Why do those who believe that Oswald killed the President all by himself also claim he was a no good, crazy, loser rather than the very good and successful assassin he had to be?

 

25)  What became of the Coke bottle? What became of the Dr. Pepper bottle found on the Sixth Floor? And what became of the photos of the broken soda bottle at the base of the park bench on the Grassy Knoll?

 

26)  What became of black couple – man and women who were sitting on that park bench eating lunch and drinking the soda when they witnessed the assassination, accidently broke the bottle, what did they see and why haven’t they come forward?

 

27)  What became of Ms. McKinnon, who claims to have witnessed the assassination from the Grassy Knoll and has since disappeared?

 

28)  Why hasn’t the HSCA acoustics study been followed up on and the acoustical evidence evaluated properly?

 

29)  What is the provenance of CE#399?

 

30)  What’s the real story behind the DNA testing of CE#345?

 

31)  Why wasn’t the TSBD building secured immediately by the three DPD officers out front?

 

32)  Why did so many witnesses believe the shots came from the Grassy Knoll and run there afterwards if no shots came from there?

 

33)  How come – if Brennan and Eunis and other witnesses told DPD and Sheriff’s officers that they saw a sniper with rifle in the SE corner window of the TSBD sixth floor at 12:31, how come it wasn’t located and secured until Sheriff’s deputy Luke Mooney “discovered” it after 1 pm?

 

34)  Who was the man in the Sixth Floor Sniper window with a rife, standing at port arms with the rifle, the one in a white shirt and bald spot on top of his head; and who was the man in the brown sports coat who was seen on the Sixth Floor with the man in the white shirt and rifle who ran out the back door of the TSBD and got into a Rambler station wagon? 

 

35)  Who was the man in the white shirt who ran down the Grassy Knoll and got into a Rambler station wagon?

 

36)  How come there is no film or photo of Oswald leaving the front door of the TSBP, as there should be, or is there?

 

37)  Why did Oswald walk seven blocks east of the TSBD and then get on a bus going back to the scene? And why did he get on a bus that would take him away from his rooming house when the bus behind it went directly to it?

 

38)  Why did Oswald offer his cab to an old lady if he was escaping the scene of a crime, and why did he take it five blocks past his rooming house?

 

39)  Who gave the DPD the description of the assassin that was broadcast over the police radio at 12:45pm? 

 

40)  Who was in the DPD cop car outside Oswald’s rooming house while he was there?

 

41)  Who was Tippit calling from the Top Ten Records shop phone ten minutes before he was killed?

 

42)  Who was the “Oswald” patron at the Top Ten shop and the beer drinking Oswald with the drivers license ID?

 

43)  Why did Tippit stop his assailant?

 

44)  Whose wallet was found at the scene and examined by officers?

 

45)  Who found the jacket under the car and where did the cleaning tag come from?

 

46)  Who were the IBM employees at the shoe store when Tippit’s assailant came by?

 

47)  Who was the “Oswald” guy who entered the theater at around 1 pm who bought a ticket and popcorn?

 

48)  Who was taken into a DPD police car in the alley in the rear of the Texas Theater?

 

49)  Who was driving Carl Mather’s car around Oak Cliff at the time of Tippit murder?

 

50)  What became of the unedited and complete tape of Air Force One radio transmissions of 11/22/63?

 

51)  Why was Oswald’s military record destroyed?

 

52)  What became of the ONI records related to the assassination, specifically those of Adml. Ruffus Taylor?

 

53)  How many documents are still being withheld for reasons of national security?

 

54)   If Oswald alone killed JFK because of his own perverted psychological motives, what do the CIA-Mafia plots to kill Castro have anything to do with it?

 

55)  Did Oswald take the pistol with him to Mexico City, as some of the Soviet officers claim?

 

56)  What became of the Cuban training camp film archived at GWU that HSCA staffers saw?

 

57)  How is it that JFK left Parkland Hospital in a bronze casket yet arrived at Bethesda in a metal one?

 

58)  Why can’t the Bethesda autopsy photographers recognize the photos they took?

 

59)  Who was the four star general at the autopsy who ordered the back wound not to be probed?

 

60)  Why were there two official autopsy exams of JFK’s brain, one of which couldn’t have been JFK’s brain?

 

61)  Why were there three different autopsy reports?

 

62)  What became of JFK’s brain after it was examined by autopsy doctors after JFK was buried?

 

63)  Why was there a container labeled “JFK brain matter – Armed Forces Institute of Pathology” that was improperly disposed when flushed down a food processor drain?

 

64)  What became of the “Harper Fragment” and doesn’t that indicate a large exit wound in the back of the head?

 

65)  Why isn’t JFK’s body exhumed and given a proper forensic autopsy with the latest scientific equipment?

 

66)  Why hasn’t Congress held an oversight hearing on the JFK Act in over 15 years?

 

67)  Why did Oswald, during his interrogations, admit to owning the pistol but not a rifle?

 

68) If all of the professional police officers and federal agents who interrogated Oswald said that he was in total control and appears to have been rehearsed and trained, who would have rehearsed and trained him?

50+ Questions that can and should be answered about the assassination of President Kennedy....

1) How many shots were fired, which one missed and which one was the head shot?


Three shots were fired (total). All of them were fired by Lee Harvey Oswald from the southeast corner window on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository Building. The weapon used: Oswald's Mannlicher-Carcano rifle (serial number C2766).

Shot #1 @ Zapruder frame 160 (approx.) (the missed shot).

Shot #2 @ Z224 (the SBT shot hitting both Kennedy & Connally).

Shot #3 @ Z313 (quite obviously). The fatal head shot.

2) From what direction(s) did the shots come?


All three shots came from the sixth floor of the TSBD Building. The evidence to support this conclusion is overwhelming in nature (despite the opinions to the contrary expressed by conspiracy proponents).

Only four or five witnesses said they heard shots coming from more than one single direction/location (that's less than 5% of the total witnesses). And more than 75% of the witnesses heard EXACTLY three shots. And THREE expended shells were found under the sniper's window in the Depository. That's pretty decent "Three Shots Were Fired" corroboration right there, sans anything else at all.

Note -- In 2013, John McAdams compiled updated charts regarding the earwitnesses, with even more witnesses now falling into the "three shots" pie slice. Here are the 2013 charts:

3) Where did the bullets come from? [Vincent] Bugliosi says that Oswald bought them, but there's no evidence of that. Where did they come from? You can’t buy one bullet, you buy bullets like cigarettes in packs and cartons and boxes, each of which has a tracking number that can tell you where and when it was sold and shipped. There were three shell casings found on the floor of the Sixth Floor Sniper’s Nest window and one unused bullet in the chamber.


The only answer to this question is: Nobody knows.

But does that answer have to mean that Lee Oswald did not obtain any bullets to go into his newly-purchased mail-order rifle in March of 1963? Answer--of course not.

After all, common sense would tell a reasonable person that if somebody buys a rifle, then it's logical to assume that the purchaser of that rifle probably would want to get some bullets to put into that rifle. And I think it's fairly obvious that Oswald did, indeed, obtain some bullets (from somewhere) to put into his Carcano rifle prior to his shooting at General Edwin Walker with that gun on April 10, 1963, and (of course) also prior to taking that same gun to work with him on November 22, 1963, and firing three bullets at President Kennedy.

A logical question I could throw back in the face of the CTers would be this one.....

Since many many Internet conspiracists actually believe in the fairy tale theory that has Oswald being set up and framed as the "patsy" for JFK's murder (with many of those same CTers also believing that the entire paper trail that links Oswald with the Carcano rifle is a phony/fake paper trail)....then why didn't those patsy plotters take the additional step of phonying up some documents that would provide a paper trail for LHO's bullet purchases too?

Did the plotters just figure nobody would ask the question Bill Kelly just asked: Where did Oswald buy his bullets??

~shrug~

A final common-sense inquiry....

Who buys a rifle and then never purchases a single bullet to go into it?

Food for Carcano thought....isn't it?

4) Where did the rifle come from? How come nobody at the post office recalls handing the weapons over the counter to Oswald?


The rifle came from Klein's Sporting Goods Co. in Chicago. It was shipped to OSWALD'S known alias
(A. Hidell) to OSWALD'S own post-office box in Dallas. Why this question is even asked over and over again by the conspiracy crowd is a huge mystery to me, because Oswald's ownership of the Carcano rifle could not be any more solid, firm, final, and irrevocable.

OSWALD'S handwriting is on the money order that paid for the rifle.

OSWALD'S writing is also on the order form for the rifle...and on the envelope mailed to Klein's.

And OSWALD'S P.O. Box number is the address that Klein's definitely shipped the rifle to on 3/20/63 (per Waldman No. 7 below). And the serial number is on this internal Klein's order form too. How much more proof is required than this to prove that Rifle C2766 found in the TSBD was OSWALD'S/"HIDELL'S" own rifle? Is this document supposedly a fake too? Was Klein's Sporting Goods part of the "plot" to frame Oswald too? IOW--how far down "Everything's Fake Avenue" is a sensible person expected to travel?

WaldmanExhibitNo7.jpg

And why would you expect a postal employee to remember a transaction from many months earlier? It was undoubtedly just another package being picked up by another P.O. Box owner. Nothing more. Nothing less. And detailed records for every package that is picked up at the post office aren't kept.

Put yourself in the shoes of the post office clerk -- After eight months have passed, do you think you could recall handing a particular package to a particular person when, at the time of the transaction, you would have had no reason at all to say to yourself: Now I'd better make a mental note of THIS particular package pick-up, because this guy picking up this package just might shoot the President eight months from now?

The proof that Oswald ordered and paid for (and, logically, took possession of) Rifle #C2766 (as well as Smith & Wesson Revolver #V510210) is a mile deep. Here's how deep it is (including, in the first link, new information that I obtained recently about the "12" that appears in the postmark on the envelope that Oswald mailed to Klein's):

5) Where did the leather strap come from? A USAF military sidearm holster strap that had to come from somewhere, from someone who knew the owner of the rifle.


This very peripheral question ranks as #5 on your list, Bill? Geesh. (This laundry list of yours must not be in order of importance, huh?) :)

Anyway, I'm not sure why you say this: "From someone who knew the owner of the rifle."

Huh? Why did you jump to such a conclusion?

Anyway, just like the "Where Did The Bullets Come From?" inquiry, this question is also in the "Unanswerable" category. AFAIK, we can never know exactly where Lee Oswald obtained the homemade-like sling that was attached to his rifle. He very likely could have gotten it from any number of places. Nobody can know for certain.

But, again, just like with the bullets, where does this type of question go anyway? Does it necessarily have to lead down "Conspiracy Road" or "Patsy Boulevard"? No, it does not. And anyone who thinks that just because there are no definitive answers to questions like these (regarding the bullets and the leather strap), it therefore means something sinister and that Oswald is innocent---is wrong. It means no such thing.

As a parallel, do you think it's necessary to know where and when O.J. Simpson bought the knife he used to kill his two victims in 1994? Heck, the murder weapon was never even found in that murder case--but Simpson's guilt is blatantly obvious nonetheless--and has been proven scientifically.

But in the JFK case, we DO have the murder weapon--and the verifiable murder weapon that killed John F. Kennedy belonged to Lee Harvey Oswald. The bullets that struck the President came from OSWALD'S very own gun. Shouldn't that fact be at least a little bit pertinent to the conspiracists of the world?

6) Why is there a scope attached that wasn’t used by the Sixth Floor Sniper?


Why are you assuming something you can't possibly know or prove, Bill? You don't know for a fact that the sixth-floor sniper (Oswald, of course) did not use the telescopic sight when he was shooting JFK. And I don't know either. It's another one of those "unanswerable" questions--Did he or didn't he use the scope? We can never know for sure.

But there's one thing about the rifle that is not debatable -- bullets from OSWALD'S rifle were definitely fired at JFK's limousine on 11/22/63. (And you surely don't want to claim that the two front-seat bullet fragments that came out of Oswald's gun were "planted". Do you, Bill?)

7) What fingerprints were found on the rifle, shells, boxes, soda bottles, windows, doors, other locations within the TSBD/fingerprints that could be connected to Oswald or others?


I don't know the answer to this question as it relates to "windows", "doors", "soda bottles", "shells", and "other locations". And I don't really know if some of those items were even checked for fingerprints, such as doors and windows.

But we do know that your resident "patsy" had his prints lifted off of various objects that were obviously used by the assassin of JFK -- e.g., the Sniper's Nest boxes and the rifle and the paper bag found in the corner of the Nest (and multiple police officers DID testify that they DID see that paper sack [CE142] on the floor in the Sniper's Nest after the shooting--Studebaker, Lt. Day, and Montgomery all said they saw it there on the floor).

Perhaps more things on the sixth floor should have been checked for fingerprints. I don't know. But I do know that the person who owned the weapon that killed JFK had his prints on a lot of stuff on that sixth floor on 11/22/63. And yes, he worked there on a daily basis since October 16th. I don't deny that fact. And yes, he was up on that sixth floor probably every day that he worked there, giving him the opportunity to place his prints on any number of boxes and other objects on that sixth floor.

But the RIFLE and that empty 38-inch-long PAPER SACK were certainly NOT things that Lee Oswald would normally be touching on any other day except November 22, 1963. And the prints of Oswald's on the boxes (deep inside the Sniper's Nest), IMO, serve as corroborating evidence which only further bolster the idea that Oswald was, indeed, present at that sixth-floor window when Kennedy drove through Dealey Plaza.

Those "box prints" themselves don't prove Oswald shot the President. But when we ADD those prints to the OTHER things linked to Oswald inside that very same sniper's lair, then I think those box prints become more significant. How could a reasonable person examining ALL of the Sniper's Nest evidence simply toss aside the fact that Oswald's own prints were also located on two of those boxes inside that Nest? And his fairly fresh prints at that (according to the FBI fingerprint expert).

8) How did the rifle get into the building without B.W. Frazier recognizing it?


WTF?

It would appear that now Mr. Kelly is inventing dumb questions just in order to inflate the number of inquiries on his laundry list. Because this one is really strange (and silly).

Of course, the answer is: Buell Frazier didn't recognize Oswald's rifle because Oswald had it wrapped up in this handmade paper bag:

OswaldsRiflePaperBagFromFBIReport.jpg

Was Frazier supposed to wrestle the bag away from Oswald as Lee carried it to the building, with Frazier then ripping open the package to see what was inside?

Will the rest of Bill's questions rise above the level of silliness exhibited in question #8? Let's see....

9) What became of the “confession” that the DPD tried to get B. W. Frazier to sign and what did it say?


This is yet another "unknowable"/"unanswerable" question. But I've got an opinion about this (which, I'll admit, is an opinion that might be dead wrong, but this is my feeling on this matter).....

Buell Wesley Frazier has recently said in multiple interviews that he was treated in a pretty rough fashion by DPD Homicide Captain J. Will Fritz on 11/22/63, with Frazier even saying that Fritz raised a hand to physically strike Frazier at one point when he was being questioned at City Hall. And Frazier also has said that Fritz was practically FORCING him to sign a "confession" of some kind that would indicate he was part of a conspiracy with Oswald to kill the President.

But I for one think that Mr. Frazier is overstating these occurrences. I don't believe for one second that Captain Fritz became violent or raised his hand as if to hit Wesley Frazier. I just do not think that happened. And I doubt very much that Frazier was TOLD to sign any "confession" either.

However, I suppose it's possible that Fritz did, indeed, exert some degree of pressure on Frazier during his interrogation. After all, the DPD had no idea at that time whether this guy Frazier was a part of a plot with Oswald or not. For all they knew, maybe Frazier was supposed to be Oswald's getaway driver or something. After all, Frazier DID drive Oswald (and the rifle) to work that day. But as far as the threats that Frazier alludes to, I'm quite skeptical.
