Defend the Warren Commission Report Findings? The 45 questions

Question #16

Back by popular demand - the 45 Questions that terrify those who try to defend

the Warren Commission Report. In the past, there have been only two

semi-serious attempts to answer them, one by John McAdams, and one by 'Bud' (the

xxxxx listed below) - Both responses were basically denials of the facts in most

of the 'answers'.

But first, an important note:

**********************************************************************

Important Note for Lurkers - there are many trolls on this forum (alt.conspiracy.jfk) who's

only purpose is to obstruct debate, deny the evidence, and attempt to change message

threads from discussing the evidence, to personal insults and attacks.

These trolls include (but are not limited to):

**22 trolls who post regularly to alt.conspiracy.jfk** names removed -dgh

Please beware when seeing their responses, and note that they will simply

deny the facts I mention, demand citations that I've provided before, or

simply run with insults. These trolls are only good material for the kill

files.

16. "I also found some surprising results based on the chest X-ray. I made

accurate measurements of the width of the spine directly on the X-ray. The

front to back thickness of the body at this site (14 cm) as well as the distance

of the back wound from the midline (4.5 to 5.0 cm) were supplied by the HSCA.

Since this latter distance can be measured independently on photographs of the

back, I also did this. The so-called exit site at the front of [the] throat was

described by the Parkland doctors as being very near the midline.

When I placed these measurements onto a cross section of the body and then

connected the bullet entry and exit sites by a straight line, I immediately saw

that the "magic" bullet had to go right through the spine. This path would have

caused major damage to the spine and would have been very obvious on the chest

X-ray. In fact, there is no major trauma like this anywhere in the spine.

Because of the impenetrable vertical barrier produced by the transverse

processes up and down the entire cervical spine and because of the total width

of the cervical spine, there is no place for the bullet to pass through anywhere

in the neck and still exit through the midline of the throat. If, instead, the

upper chest is considered as a possible bullet trajectory site, then another

problem arises. The bullet would have to go right through the lung. But no lung

damage of this type was seen by the pathologists and none is seen on the X-rays

either. This "magic bullet simply cannot enter through the back wound and then

exit through the throat wound without hitting the spine - or else causing major

lung trauma. It is odd that this rather simple reconstruction with exact

measurements has never been done before. Its very simplicity, however, proves

direct evidence that the object which entered the back could not have exited at

the front of the throat." Dr. Mantik, Assassination Science, pg 157-158

Why has no-one been able to step up to the plate and show that

this *is* possible?

I haven't seen one of them actually deal with Mantik's findings. What did that one guy say? The bullet didn't hit the spine - "Because it didn't hit the spine %^*wipe!" Gee what a convincing rebutal. Those guys remind me of the scene in Cool Hand Luke where Luke wins the pot in a poker game by bluffing that he has a good hand. The George Kennedy character beamingly intones his admiration by refering to a boxing match in which Luke refused to give up, even after being badly beaten by the burly giant - "He just kept coming right back at me.......with nothin!" Kinda reminds me of those guys. All bluster and bluff backed up by.....nothin.

To the Nutter's if it's in the WCR its *gospel*.... as for them dealing with Dr. David Mantik, M.D. and his findings, they run everytime....
