"Eight to ten shots"


Recommended Posts

Glenn,

You've posted a quote (presumably accurately represented here) without citing the published source from which it was attained. For those unfamiliar with Jim's work, it places them at a disadvantage when attempting to evaluate the validity of the claim. Can you cite the publication wherein this appears, so that it can be considered within context? I know you cited Jim Fetzer, but alone, that is insufficient to represent the argument upon which the assertion is based.

Many thanks.

Start with David Mantik's research establishing two shots to the head and the argument from addition and subtraction which I present in ASSASSINATION SCIENCE (1998). Then turn to David's brilliant synthesis of the medical evidence and Douglas Weldon's exceptional study of the shot to the throat, which passed through the windshield, in MURDER IN DEALEY PLAZA (2000). Then consider the shot to the back in "Reasoning about Assassinations", which you can download as a pdf or else read at http://jamesfetzer.blogspot.com/2009/11/reasoning-about-assassinations.html

That makes four shots to JFK: one to the throat (from the south side of the Triple Underpass), one to the back (from the top of the County Records building), and two to the head (one from the Dal-Tex and one from the north side of the Triple Underpass). In addition, Big John Connally was hit from one to three times from the side (which appear to have been fired from the west side of the Book Depository). One missed and injured James Tague, another hit the chrome strip (both from the Dal-Tex), and another hit the grass left of the limo (fired from the "grassy knoll").

That makes 4 to JFK, 1-3 in Connally, and 3 that missed, which makes 8-10 shots altogether (where very recent research suggests there may have been yet one more shot, in which case the number would increase by one). For an overview--including a diagram of the shot sequence--visit "John F. Kennedy: History, Memory, Legacy", http://www.und.edu/instruct/jfkconference/ and download Chapter 30, "Dealey Plaza Revisited: What Happened to JFK?", which I presented during a conference at the University of North Dakota and was introduced by The Honorable John R. Tunheim.

Jim,

Has Glenn become "teacher's pet" or something? You gave him the answers to the FINAL EXAM! :D
