Dr. Robert McClelland has passed away.

Recommended Posts

I've told this story, at least in part on the forum once in the past and mentioned it briefly another time.

I once met Dr. McClelland ever so briefly, and, an hour or so later had the opportunity to ask him a question.  He was soft-spoken, courteous and gave his full attention to my initial comment and later question. 

Somewhere I still have the flyer where I'd seen (in addition to in e-mails) that he was coming to the small university I work at about 75 miles Southwest of Fort Worth to give a presentation  on his observations on November 22, 1963 and the aftermath.  I believe this was in the spring or early - mid summer of 2013.  His talk was given in the Nursing building lecture hall with a little over 100 seats.  People were leaning against the walls all the way around, sitting in the aisles and floor in front of and around the podium.  Many (students in particular) arrived after he'd started).

I got there about 15 minutes early and sat on the 3rd or 4th row.  He was escorted in about 5 minutes before the scheduled start time.  I noticed he wasn't occupied with anyone else at the moment, went down and introduced myself and explained that if I left before he finished speaking that it wasn't from a lack of interest and I didn't mean any disrespect but I was supposed to be elsewhere about an hour later.  He replied kindly.  I don't remember his exact words, I understand, that's ok, thanks for coming.  I believe he was smiling and I thought sincere.

I was enthralled with his presentation as well his soft spoken, humble manner.  I didn't leave.  

When he was done and the Q & A began I raised my hand.  I was both honored and kind of embarrassed when he pointed to me first.  I asked, "Dr. McClelland, your friend and experienced emergency room Doctor,  Dr. Malcom Perry stated three times on the afternoon of November 22 1963 that the throat wound was an entrance wound.  Do you think anyone else may have influenced his later agreement with the Warren Commission that it "could" have been an exit wound?"  He paused, then said "yes".  There was an audible gasp in the room.   

I, once again, felt honored to listen to and be able to ask a question of what seemed to me to be both honest and intelligent man who was there.  Eighteen inches away.

If you go past his Warren Commission testimony in the following link to the part about the students in his office for a discussion on pancreatic cancer were distracted by the magazine it relates.

Sigh :(....a genuine and strong yet gentle spirit from the accounts. May he Rest In Peace and I will forever be grateful for his genuine honesty and revelations concerning that tragic and terrible moment in history.

As forngis revealing comment on Dr. Perry’s testimony being influenced, well according to the work of JimDi, we have every reason to believe today that it was Secret Service Agent Elmer Moore. One of the most revealing chapters of DB2nd Ed.

Dr. McClelland's greatest contribution to the Truth, beyond trying to save JFK's life, may have been his illustration of the exit wound he saw from 18 inches away on 11/22/63.  Described by he and others as the size of a grapefruit or orange or a baseball or softball.

And his persistence in supporting Doctor's Perry and Crenshaw through the years.

Perhaps his greatest contribution to the truth was a revelation he made in the film The Parkland Doctors.

He said that right after Perry walked away from the podium, a man in a suit approached him and said, "Don't ever say what you said today again, about a shot from the front."

This is about 90 or so minutes after Kennedy is dead. Someone knew that early and was molding the story that fast.

Where can this be seen?

David Talbot wrote on Facebook today:

We're now witnessing the beginning of Donald Trump's overthrow, in a not-so-hidden U.S. intelligence operation. And understandably the corporate media is in frenzied, 24/7 coverage mode. But President Kennedy's much more violent overthrow -- also at the hands of national security forces -- is again completely ignored. JFK's epic murder should have been back on the front pages this week when the death of Dr. Robert McClelland was announced. To recap, Dr. McClelland was the chi...ef surgeon at Dallas's Parkland Memorial Hospital when President Kennedy was rushed there after being mortally wounded. The surgeon stood directly over JFK and closely examined the fatal head shot, concluding the bullet had been fired from in front of his limousine -- from what McClelland later identified as the infamous grassy knoll overlooking Dealey Plaza. The kill shot could NOT have been fired, Dr. McClelland medically concluded, from the rear -- where Lee Harvey Oswald allegedly was firing from a sniper's nest in the Texas School Book Depository. (But JFK WAS struck from the rear by another bullet.)

In other words. Dr. McClelland and other members of his surgical team were the first to conclude -- on the basis of solid, eyewitness, medical evidence -- that President Kennedy was the victim of a conspiracy involving at least two shooters. Dr. McClelland was also painfully aware of the organized cover-up because he and his hospital colleagues were strongly pressured by the FBI and other authorities to keep their mouths shut about what they'd seen. They did remain quiet for years, until their conscience finally made them speak out.

This week the U.S. media was given yet another chance to redeem itself, after nearly six decades of covering up the truth about the Kennedy assassination. Newspapers and cable news shows could have highlighted Dr. McClelland's explosive conclusions about JFK; they could have reported the surgeon's central importance in the Dallas tragedy by honoring his bravery and honesty. But the news blackout continues.

To get the real scoop about Dr. McClelland, you must consult knowledgeable sites like author/journalist Jefferson Morley's JFK Facts:

Just found this 11/12/2015 video where McCleland may have contradicted what he said in the Parkland documentary, or maybe he just didn't remember it right then. Might be worth mentioning, idk. When asked by an audience member "When were you approached by someone in the FBI or CIA to keep your opinion to yourself?", McClelland replied "Oh, that was some time after the assassination had occurred and the Warren Commission, you know, was set up. I wasn't confronted immediately with anybody like that". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySO0pLcN5ww&t=35m53s
