Ramon F. Herrera posted a topic in JFK Assassination DebateSummary: So far, the score is 3 to 1, against anybody being allowed to see the X-rays in high quality, digital copies outside the National Archives building. EVIDENCE AGAINST: (1) Dr. Peter Cummings, Forensic Pathologist, Boston University. This is from the PBS Nova Cold Case JFK documentary Can the American people see the JFK autopsy x-rays in high quality? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLawLMl0JiY (2) Dr. Michael Chesser, Neurologist http://assassinationofjfk.net/a-review-of-the-jfk-cranial-x-rays-and-photographs/ (3) Dr. Joseph Riley, PhD in Neuroscience. In an e-mail he told me: "Let me clarify: I don’t have copies of the x-rays; no one does. What I have are copies of the exhibits used by the HSCA (including their reproductions of the x-rays). I have 8x11 in prints of most of the medical evidence and 4x5 in negatives for the x-rays as well as prints. I got them from the National Archives but that was many years ago; there may be better copies available now. I just don’t know." http://jfkhistory.com/riehl/What_Struck_John.html So far, the news is bad, correct? That's is 3 to 0. Don't despair, though! There is reason to be hopeful !! See EVIDENCE FOR in my next post. -Ramon
Greg Burnham posted a topic in JFK Assassination DebateI have just published the presentation of Neurologist, Dr. Michael Chesser, on the main website, which he delivered at the JFK Lancer Conference in Dallas this year. This is a MUST read, IMO. We spoke on the telephone today and Dr. Chesser has agreed to join my forum and will answer any questions that you may have for him there. A Review of the JFK Cranial x-Rays and Photographs From the intro: [Editorial note: The following presentation was prepared and delivered by neurologist, Dr. Michael Chesser, at the 2015 JFK Lancer Conference in Dallas, Texas. His work also supports the findings of Dr. David Mantik. According to Dr. Chesser: “I viewed the original autopsy skull X-rays at the archives this year  and I confirmed [Mantik’s] optical density readings of the lateral skull film, which support his conclusion that there was manipulation. Hopefully there will come a time when better copies of the autopsy x-rays and photographs will be made available for review by a wider audience and the evidence will speak for itself. I applaud Dr. David Mantik for his courage in reporting the truth.” While there are many debatable items of evidence in this case, many of which cannot be proved one way or another, the medical evidence has now been subjected to scrutiny by several eminently qualified medical experts and a physicist. Dr. Michael Chesser demonstrates, among other things, that these rather disturbing findings are replicable. We thank him for his good work and dedication to the truth.– Greg Burnham]
This is one of those things that infuriate me about the whole JFK case. It is impossible for the photo and the x-ray attached to be both genuine, right? Reasoning: (1) Unless all the Parkland personnel concocted a unanimous lie, the x-ray cannot possibly be real. Not even close. We may split hairs about the gaping hole being baseball-, fist- or grapefruit-size, or perhaps being closer to the right as opposed to the center, but a hole like that cannot possibly heal (or migrate) during the 4-hour flight from Parkland to Bethesda. (2) Let's say that we accept the x-ray. Now we have an even worse problem. Where on earth is the huge hole that should have obliterated the right eye, plus vicinity, of the victim? If there is any consistency in this world: • CTs must say that the X-ray is a fake. • LNs must say that the photo is a fake. TIA, -Ramon
