  1. If that's you're train of thought, it's possible, but there are obstacles to overcome. Descending stairs in hard sole shoes generates noise. There was a man who testified he was at the 5th level north/west corner staircase area at the time of the shooting. This man testified he did not use the stairs after the shooting, he used the elevator. The elevators were both on level 5 according to Truly when he peered up the elevator shaft in company with Baker.
  2. Geneva Hine, Credit desk, 2nd floor.
  3. Caster's office was on the 2nd floor. The door to these offices were locked at the time of the shooting. There was a person on the phone, inside the office, immediately after the shooting. Hine tried calling out to that person, knocked and shook the door, but they would not respond.
  4. Good to see you aren't fooled by those who sought to eliminate all traces of a conspiracy. When Craig contacted Fritz that afternoon, and was invited by Fritz to his office to view the suspect, we can safely say that Fritz, at that point in time, was not adverse to exploring the possibility that Oswald was chauffeured from the scene. Fritz then passed the information to his boss, Curry, who then passed the information onto the press on Saturday. Then the shift happened, no conspiracy please. Craig's visit with Fritz was downplayed, a bus transfer was 'found", etc. So we see Fritz then conforming to the no conspiracy storyline, and Roger Craig officially became a kook at 12:40pm Friday the 22nd. So we had a 7.65 Mauser found near the stairs, and 3 spent shells that were discovered side by side, all pointing the same direction, on the Sniper Nest floor. All this before 1:06pm, which makes sense, as the rifle window was actually pointed out to Inspector Sawyer at approx 12:40/42pm. A shift then occurred, the spent shells scattered, and the Mauser became a Carcano. The planners set the assassin patsy up with a weapon. Does anyone seriously think that they would originally set him up with a junk rifle like a Carcano with a mis-aligned scope? The introduction of the Carcano seems hasty and on the fly, but had to to be done. You just need to work out why.
  5. From a planning perspective, to ensure the assassination from the South Knoll area, they would not place you at that elevation to begin with. The planners would regard the bubble-top as a variable. The windscreen is non-variable. The shooter is below you.
  6. Lets say you are the shooter. You are in you're assigned South Knoll area early and its raining; They are paying you to shoot the president right through the head, and you have no idea if the bubble-top will be covering your target before you arrive at you're shooting location. You're location was chosen for a shot over the windscreen. The limo appears, and it has the bubble-top on. Do you take the shot?
  7. Its a mirror out of a Lincoln Continental that matches the one installed on the JFK limo.
  8. Analysing reflective surfaces is very subjective. What seems like a dent could be various reflected shades. For instance, the shadow of the mirror mount stem could account for the dark streak at the arrow. The camera flash can also account for the lighter patch above the selectors, due to that area being at the apex of the rear mirror housing curve, and would then be most likely to reflect directly back to the camera lens.
  9. The effect of the shot that struck close by Tague, and resulted in injury, caused him to retreat behind the abutment. He may not have been consciously aware of that shot, but it contributed to his retreat. Tague's exit from his car, in that area was unexpected. So was it a deflected shot, or a directed shot?
  10. Putting up theories is a good idea. It opens the theory up for scrutiny which helps you forge on, modify, or discard. Regarding Tague; Mr. TAGUE. Well, I was standing there watching, and really I was watching to try to distinguish the President and his car. About this time I heard what sounded like a firecracker. Well, a very loud firecracker. It certainly didn't sound like a rifleshot. It was more of a loud cannon-type sound. I looked around to see who was throwing firecrackers or what was going on and I turned my head away from the motorcade and, of course, two more shots. Tague would have had the motorcade coming towards him on Elm. In order to turn his head away from the motorcade, to source the loud firecracker sound, he would have scanned the area that comprised the wooden fence, trees, and grassy slope. This is the area that multiple witnesses on the overpass saw smoke. The firecracker sound and smoke, I have no doubt, came from that general area. On the other side that area was Bowers who saw a flash of light and smoke. He saw no weapon, no-one saw any weapon. That area is the source of the firecracker/cannon type noise. That area is where Decker sent his deputies, the area where everyone ran to, the area where the smell of gun smoke wafted over the motorcade as it passed by. The smoke and loud noise in that area was a magnet for everyone, it was a cover noise, it was planned that way.
  11. Do you realise how many witnesses you need to discard with this theory that Oswald fired first and intentionally missed? There are dozens of witnesses that associated the first explosive sound heard with JFK raising his arms to his chest/neck and/or slumping. How many explosive sounds did Connally hear before he turned? The answer is one.
  12. Back to the Texas Theatre; The person that theatre employees suspected ran up into the balcony didn't just vanish. Note below that the Deputy Sheriff is heading up to the balcony level, and before entering the balcony proper, notes that that an officer is holding a white man. The movie was running at this time, yet there is a white man held by an officer outside the the theatre area, and before Oswald was arrested downstairs;
  13. Why would the "other parties" allow LHO to fire an intentionally missed shot if their aim was to assassinate the President? As far as the "other parties" were concerned, JFK could have easily ducked down low at the sound of LHO's gunfire. I seriously doubt that the "other parties" were positive that JFK would sit upright like a sitting duck waiting for the further rounds.
  14. McWatters and the cab driver have jackets on their man; Bledsoe saw a hole in "Oswald's" shirt at the elbow, which means no jacket; Mr. BALL - Now, what color shirt did he have on? Mrs. BLEDSOE - He had a brown shirt. Mr. BALL - And unraveled? Mrs. BLEDSOE - Hole in his sleeve right here [indicating]. Mr. BALL - Which is the elbow of the sleeve? That is, you pointed to the elbow? Mrs. BLEDSOE - Well, it is. Mr. BALL - And that would be which elbow, right or left elbow? Mrs. BLEDSOE - Right.
  15. Can you show us if the limo's length is exactly the same in those 2 frames?
  16. The above document has Rankin wanting to know why it took "40 minutes" to find the "shells" since he believed the Brennan information became immediately known to police after the shots were fired. Here is the timeline; 12:32 (approx) - Ochus Campbell overhears a construction worker (Brennan) telling a Police Officer (not Sawyer) about the rifle he saw in the window. 12:32 to 12:40 - Brennan is seen in various photos on the steps of the TSBD. 12:40 (approx) Brennan and Inspector Sawyer are seen talking in Sawyer's car in front of the TSBD; 12:43 - Sawyer is on the radio with the description of the wanted person and gun type. 1:15 - (approx) The shells are found where Brennan said he saw the rifle barrel in the window The above highlights the 40 minute delay that Rankin enquired about. The WC has Mooney finding the shells at approx 1:12. 12:32 to 1:12 is exactly 40 minutes. I believe the delay in finding the shells, and the obscuring of the first police officer that Brennan spoke to, are closely connected in the cover-up aftermath.
  17. The document below reveals that Rankin suspected that police should have known exactly where to look for rifle evidence immediately after the shots were fired. Rankin suspected that Brennan spoke with a police officer immediately after the shots, (as Campbell confirms) and wanted to know the "CHAIN OF INFORMATION" of the 12:43/45 Sawyer broadcast. The FBI/DPD hid that officer from the WC
  18. To put this topic into context, please compare the Brennan FBI statement and the Campbell DPD statement below; At the very least, Campbell, Brennan and a police officer are together immediately after the shots. This police officer, according to both above reports, had immediate knowledge of a rifle barrel seen high up in the building AND that the person holding the rifle is ostensibly still in the building. The FBI/DPD did not make a concerted effort to uncover this police officer, and the reason for this is apparent. It could be why the TSBD manager, Campbell was not invited to the Commission.
  19. Kelley's statement above is backed up by Sorrels; its very important to know that Oswald was shown a "book of identification" that indicated to him that the phone seeker was Secret Service. The same thing happened to Police Officer Joe Smith; Mr. SMITH. Yes, sir; I checked all the cars. I looked into all the cars and checked around the bushes. Of course, I wasn't alone. There was some deputy sheriff with me, and I believe one Secret Service man when I got there. I got to make this statement, too. I felt awfully silly, but after the shot and this woman, I pulled my pistol from my holster, and I thought, this is silly, I don't know who I am looking for, and I put it back. Just as I did, he showed me that he was a Secret Service agent. Police Officer D. V. Harkness was also confronted by "Secret Service"; Mr. BELIN - Then you went around to the back of the building? Mr. HARKNESS - Yes, sir. Mr. BELIN - Was anyone around in the back when you got there? Mr. HARKNESS - There were some Secret Service agents there. I didn't get them identified. They told me they were Secret Service. It is truly remarkable that Oswald and Officer Joe Smith were shown Secret Service ID within minutes of the shooting.
  20. There is a disconnect with Brennan's testimony. Here is Brennan; Mr. BRENNAN. I knew I had to get to someone quick to tell them where the man was. So I ran or I walked--there is a possibility I ran, because I have a habit of, when something has to be done in a hurry, I run. And there was one officer standing at the corner of the Texas Book Store on the street. It didn't seem to me he was going in any direction. He was standing still. Mr. BELIN. What did you do or what did you say to him? Mr. BRENNAN. I asked him to get me someone in charge, a Secret Service man or an FBI. That it appeared to me that they were searching in the wrong direction for the man that did the shooting. And he was definitely in the building on the sixth floor. I did not say on the sixth floor. Correction there. I believe I identified the window as one window from the top. Mr. BELIN. And then what happened, sir? Mr. BRENNAN. He said, "just a minute." And he had to give some orders or something on the east side of the building on Houston Street. And then he had taken me to, I believe, Mr. Sorrels, an automobile sitting in front of the Texas Book Store. Notice the big gap in the timeline? The Police Officer that Brennan refers to that "gave some orders" would be Inspector Sawyer. Sawyer does not park his car in front of the TSBD until around 12:34, where he speaks to officers and immediately takes the elevator to the 4th floor. Sawyer is back in front of the TSBD around 12:37 Sawyer is the one giving the orders after 12:37; Mr. BELIN. Then you got down and what did you do? Mr. SAWYER. I asked the Sergeant to doublecheck the security around the building, and then I took two patrolmen and stationed them at the front door and told them, with instructions not to let anybody in or out. The first police officer that Brennan "runs" over to can't be Sawyer, simply because Brennan would not say "I asked him to get me someone in charge, a Secret Service man or an FBI. That it appeared to me that they were searching in the wrong direction for the man that did the shooting" to Inspector Sawyer, as the building by that time was the focus of scrutiny, and the Inspector was obviously in charge. To work out who the first police officer was, we turn to Ochus Campbell, the manager of the TSBD; Since Brennan said he ran over, and Campbell describes a construction worker, most likely Brennan, and a uniform officer, most likely Barnett, we have a little gathering on the Elm Street Island immediately after the shots. If the Darnell film is accurate, Baker is ruled out, as he appears to run from his parked motorcycle to the TSBD without stopping. If Campbell overhears Brennan talking to Barnett about a rifle sighting high up in the TSBD, it makes sense that Barnett then runs down the east side of the building checking the fire escape and rear entrance. Sawyer arrives at 12:34; Mr. SAWYER. Then I went on down to the Texas Book Depository. Mr. BELIN. Where did you park your car? Mr. SAWYER. In front of the Texas School Book Depository. Mr. BELIN. In front of the main entrance there? Mr. SAWYER. In front of the main entrance. Mr. BELIN. What did you do then? Mr. SAWYER. Immediately went into---well, talked to some of the officers around there who told me the story that they had thought some shots had come from one of the floors in the building, and I think the fifth floor was mentioned Barnett, was, by 12:34, one of the officers that had returned to the front of the TSBD. So Sawyer gleans the Brennan info from Barnett, then charges into the building and up the elevator. Sawyer, after returning to the front of the TSBD, then talks with Brennan direct. Brennan has that police officer saying "just a minute" and gave orders. Mr. SAWYER. That description came to me mainly from one witness who claimed to have seen the rifle barrel in the fifth or sixth floor of the building, and claimed to have been able to see the man up there. Following that chat, Sawyer is on the radio; Mr. BELIN. Now the next time that No. 9 appears is at what time? Mr. SAWYER. Immediately after 12:43 and before 12:45. Mr. BELIN. What did you say then? Mr. SAWYER. "The wanted person in this is a slender white male about 30, 5 feet 10, 165, carrying what looks to be a 30-30 or some type of Winchester." Mr. BELIN. Then the statement is made from the home office, "It was a rifle?" Mr. SAWYER. I answered, "Yes, a rifle." Mr. BELIN. Then the reply to you, "Any clothing description?" Mr. SAWYER. "Current witness can't remember that." Barnett gives a hint that he spoke with Brennan about a rifle extending out of the TSBD; We know Barnett did not immediately run along the east side of the TSBD after the shots. Here he is below in Wiegman; It follows that immediately after the above film capture, Brennan joins that group and asks the patrolman for someone in charge. Campbell then hears about the rifle. Barnett runs off, then Darnell shows Baker running.
  21. If it was Ruby that spilled to Kilgallen, he sealed both their fates, for they fell like dominoes. Nasty way to die. They must of had some juicy stuff on Pataky if he was the villain.
  22. The man that banged on the bus door; Mr. McWATTERS - ..... He was to me just dressed in what I would call work clothes, just some type of little old jacket on The man buys a ticket; Mr. BALL - Paid his fare, did he? Mr. McWATTERS - Yes, sir; he just paid his fare and sat down on the second cross seat on the right. I have read a lot about Oswald to know that he was quite frugal, and utilised bus transportation regularly. If Oswald was transporting himself between his home and the TSBD, you would expect him to have a bus pass. Buying individual tickets is not an economical method. The man that banged on the bus door, according to the WC, was Oswald. He had just walked 7 blocks up Elm to board a bus; Mr. McWATTERS - ..... As I left Field Street, I pulled out into the, in other words, the first lane of traffic and traffic was beginning to back up then; in other words, it was blocked further down the street, and after I pulled out in it for a short distance there I come to a complete stop, and when I did, someone come up and beat on the door of the bus "Oswald" had the opportunity, walking 7 blocks, to see that traffic was held up along Elm. So the bus he selects, and pays for, would obviously, to him, be caught in traffic. Not only that, his bus of choice would take him straight back to the corner of Elm and Houston. Further, and this is most bizarre, the bus right behind McWatters bus, was the Beckley bus. If you insist that it was Oswald that boarded the McWatters bus, then it is quite obvious he didn't live on Beckley. Mr. BALL - Seven blocks, Beckley is seven blocks west of Marsalis, is that correct? Mr. McWATTERS - Yes. Mr. BALL - Your bus line doesn't run down Beckley? Mr. McWATTERS - No, sir.
  23. Connally said that on the 27th, 5 days later. There is a video, he is alert and lucid.
