  1. Correcting some information from the previous post which left the impression that the bullet could not have passed through the neck because of all the soft tissue in the way. The key here is , "soft tissue". I am including strap muscle in my definition of "soft tissue" and I do not know if that is correct but it is not bone. 1 The Bethesda autopsy physicians attempted to probe the bullet hole in the base of Kennedy's neck above the scapula, but were unsuccessful as it passed through neck strap muscle. They did not perform a full dissection or persist in tracking, as throughout the autopsy, they were unaware of the exit wound, at the front of the throat. Emergency room physicians had obscured it when they performed the tracheotomy. At Bethesda, the autopsy report of the president, Warren Exhibit CE 387[9] described the back wound as being oval, 6 x 4 mm, and located "above the upper border of the scapula" [shoulder blade] at a location 14 cm (5.5 in) from the tip of the right acromion process, and 14 cm (5.5 in) below the right mastoid process (the bony prominence behind the ear). The concluding page of the Bethesda autopsy report,[9] states: "The other missile [the bullet to the back] entered the right superior posterior thorax above the scapula, and traversed the soft tissues of the supra-scapular and the supra-clavicular portions of the base of the right side of the neck. The report also reported contusion (bruise) of the apex (top tip) of the right lung in the region where it rises above the clavicle, and noted that although the apex of the right lung and the parietal pleural membrane over it had been bruised, they were not penetrated, indicating passage of a missile close to them, but above them. The report noted that the thoracic cavity was not penetrated. This missile produced contusions of the right apical parietal pleura and of the apical portion of the right upper lobe of the lung. The missile contused the strap muscles of the right side of the neck, damaged the trachea, and made its exit through the anterior surface of the neck." The single bullet of the Warren Commission Report places a bullet wound at the sixth cervical vertebra of the vertebral column, which is consistent with 5.5 inches (14 cm) below the ear. The Warren Report itself does not conclude bullet entry at the sixth cervical vertebra, but this conclusion was made in a 1979 report on the Kennedy assassination by the House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA), which noted a defect in the C6 vertebra in the Bethesda X-rays, which the Bethesda autopsy physicians had missed, and did not note. http://en.wikipedia....Kennedy_autopsy 1James Gordon is the resident expert. I am sure he will chime in if he disagrees with any of the above 2Get out your magnifying glass and look at the neck image from the previous post you will see those long "belts" are the strap muscles. Cliff , where is your evidence that it is at T3?
  2. Anyone want to help make it a $1,000,000?

    Barry, In the comments section of your article you point to the article by Michael Schweitzer and state your belief that the CIA killed John Kennedy. Link to Schweitzer article you reference http://www.facebook....563254230367331 Your $25,000 offer is to prove that Oswald killed the president. As I understand it, you are not proposing that you can prove that the CIA killed John Kennedy. You are not proposing that you can prove that the CIA killed Kennedy are you?
  3. Craig Lamson's "Stemmons Sign" Thread

    I suggest you read the thread. You can do that...can't you? The do a bit of research and educate yourself. Not that interested. I do not think you really know what you are talking about. You are being too protective of your data, indicating something is not quite right.
  4. Craig Lamson's "Stemmons Sign" Thread

    You cannot even define the axis of the entrance pupil? I would think it would be perpindicular to the entrance pupil.
  5. Ran across a link to this interesting article. Propaganda and Disinformation - How the CIA manufactures History by Victor Marchetti http://www.ihr.org/j..._Marchetti.html
  6. Craig Lamson's "Stemmons Sign" Thread

    Ok, where is the axis of the entrance pupil. You need to define it.
  7. I know of no researcher that claims that Yitzak Rabin was in Dallas the day of the assassination. There are some who point to the very quote you have provided to state that Yitzak Rabin was in Dallas "hours before" the assassination. Fort Bliss is in El Paso, Texas http://educationforu...=15#entry255549 Also, note the title of the book, Rabin , Our Life , His Legacy. In a book, titled Our Life His Legacy she places her husband in Dallas within hours of the assassination. She does not say days, she says "hours". I do not think we would have ever known he was in Dallas if it was not for that passage. If you are an Israeli and knew of Kennedy's opposition to nuclear weapons for Israel how might you interpret this, in a book entitled Yitzak Rabin , Our Life His Legacy? It is also sloppy research to completely ignore the Israeli nuclear issue and Kennedy's opposition to it, in fact I think it is worse research because it is no research at all. Have you ever seen a picture of Israel's memorial to JFK? It looks like a sawed off tree trunk. http://en.wikipedia....iki/Yad_Kennedy
  8. Craig Lamson's "Stemmons Sign" Thread

    Do you mean rotation of the camera about the axis of the entrance pupil? Rotating around the axis of the entrance pupil? How else could you pan around that axis?
  9. When he says he pointed to guys behind the grassy knoll? I suspect that he is referring to the fact that he was the Chief Counsel for the HSCA and approved the finding of fact that a shot did come from the Grassy Knoll. Of course, he tempered that finding with the qualification that the shot from the Knoll missed. But I would like to know which "guys" he is talking about in his response to John Simikin in the above quoted text. The HSCA convened between 1976 and 1979. Mr. Blakey was Chief Counsel from 1977 to 1979. Gary Mack did not discover his "Badgeman" until 1982. So who are these "guys" Mr. Blakey is talking about?
  10. James, I cannot reply to you anymore. Tom Scully has gone off the deep end again. I read your article James. And I brought attention to your theory. That was my sole intention when I replied to your post. There was no baiting and none of the crapola that Tom likes to accuse people of. So there can be no more discussion of your theory by me. Here is a link to toms crapola... http://educationforu...135#entry263416
  11. This thread should be deleted. I did not create this thread. This thread was created by moderator Tom Scully. He put my name in the title of this thread and created the false impression that I started this thread. He has no right to create a thread and put my name on it. He is abusing his power. If Tom Scully created this thread then Tom Scullys name should be on it. It should be clear that Tom Scully is trying to harass and censor me.
  12. When Governor John Connally was wounded

    The 6.5 Cancano is not a high speed round it is more of a medium speed round When I said high speed I meant it fired a round at supersonic velocity. What is the speed for a high speed bullet?
  13. When Governor John Connally was wounded

    That statement may be true but I was not the one who said it.
