    Where is the exit?

    Dear Cliff, thank you for your answer. You've stressed the importance of the physical evidence in this case, and I definitely think that's the right Approach. I would be glad if you could help me understand the evidence a bit better. That's the way I see things: The holes in President Kennedy's clothes clearly show that the Warren Commission's single bullet theory can't be correct. The holes can't be reconciled with a trajectory pointing back to the 6th floor of the School Book Depository, because that would imply that the bullet left Kennedy's body at an upward angle if it were to hit governor Connally in the armpit. The wound in Kennedy's back however was, if the official autopsy Report is to be believed, very shallow and no path through the body was found. So if the Warren Commission is right and only 3 shots were fired that day, that leaves us with only two possibilities: 1) Kennedy and Connally were hit by the same bullet 2) Connally was hit by a bullet, but Kennedy wasn't. Whatever hit him in the back didn't possess the force necessary to penetrate deep into his body. That would rule out a bullet from a rifle. Considering his strong reaction as can be seen in the Zapruder film it does appear more likely that he was indeed hit by a shot. Now if we assume that more than 3 shots were fired, one of which hit the president in the back, we're confronted with 2 big problems: 1) Why was no bullet path found? 2) Why was no extra bullet found? Robert Harris may not have his trajectory 100 % correct, but I think he might be on the right track. After all, we don't know for sure which exact posture Kennedy was in when he was hit.

    But what if the shot came from a position much lower than the 6th floor? One of the lower floors of the DalTex building for instance? That's where Robert Harris thinks the shots came from: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvqCtaBkyyE I'm no expert in 3d modeling but if his calculations are right, then the single bullet theory would make sense after all. Then the only mystery left would be why the doctors couldn't find the bullet's path through the body.

    Paul, why would Michael Paine take photos of military installations?

    Does anyone know where I can find a copy of Maurice Phillips's book De Dallas à Montreal? He had a link to the PDF on his website but unfortunately it's no longer working. Any help would be appreciated.

    David, it seems some of those Italian rifles ended up in the hands of the Cuban insurgents: Ruby was involved with Rothman: Did this firm by any chance sell Mannlicher-Carcano rifles...? Senator John F. Kennedy wanted to put a stop to all that:

    Two Australian girls said that Osborne had been sitting next to Oswald. Osborne himself denied this. Who are we to believe? I don't know much about the two girls - but Osborne IS a suspicious character, especially in view of the fact that later he would confide to a friend that he had indeed been with Oswald. On the other hand I know there's reason to believe Oswald went to Mexico by car - or not at all. The whole story remains an enigma to me. So what's your opinion?

    This is also interesting:

    Mark, Oswald's revolver came from a company in Montreal:

    Tracy, there's a number of reasons to believe Wilcott didn't tell the truth. But his political leanings and his attitude toward the CIA is not one of them, in my opinion. If Wilcott truly believed the CIA to be involved in the Kennedy assassination this belief might have profoundly changed his world view, don't you think so? He certainly was not always a leftist or else the CIA wouldn't have hired him. I'm sure they do extensive background checks on prospective employees.

    Douglas, this is from "The Last Investigation", page 10:

    Interesting. The mysterious phone call to the Cambridge newspaper 25 minutes before the assassination was also supposedly linked to the Profumo affair - and possibly made by Albert Osborne, who sat next to Oswald in the bus to Mexico. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5022789/UK-reporter-got-tip-25-minutes-JFK-assassination.html Was Osborne a Soviet spy after all? Is it possible the KGB learned about the plans to kill Kennedy in Dallas?
