a few reviews:

"As a career physicist in the national security sector, G. Paul Chambers is a uniquely qualified guide to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Instead of theorizing or demonizing, he offers a fascinating defense of the scientific method through history and applies that method to the oft-distorted JFK forensic evidence. He dismantles the bad science at the core of Vincent Bugliosi's flabby Reclaiming History and politely punts the fantasy that the Zapruder film was altered. What remains, he reveals, is a body of scientific evidence about JFK's murder that is increasingly consistent, self-authenticating, verifiable, and definitive." --Jefferson Morley, author of Our Man in Mexico: Winston Scott and the Hidden History of the CIA

Polls consistently show that a huge majority of the American public

doesn’t accept the basic conclusion of the Warren Report, that Lee

Harvey Oswald was JFK’s sole assassin. So, one more book purporting to

“demolish” that conclusion is unlikely to cause many ripples. Chambers

seems to have more serious credentials than such debunkers as Mark

Lane or Oliver Stone. He is a physicist and ballistics expert

currently working as a contractor for NASA and who previously worked

as a research physicist for the Naval Research Laboratory in

Washington, D.C. Mercifully, Chambers does not indulge in wild

conspiracy theories, although his rejection of the single-gunman

theory inevitably leads to such conclusions. Rather, the core of his

work claims to employ the scientific method to show why Oswald could

not have fired all of the shots. As a trained specialist, his use of

scientific data gives his assertions an aura of credibility that it

may or may not deserve. This is often a riveting read as he sifts

through the evidence, but many will find his conclusions unconvincing.

--Jay Freeman

"Head Shot presents a unique and fascinating correlation of history

and science with the government's investigation of the assassination

of President Kennedy. Warren Commission critics may disagree with the

specifics of G. Paul Chambers's reconstruction of this tragic event,

but everyone who rejects the 'sole assassin--single bullet theory'

will better understand why JFK's murder was a conspiracy involving

multiple shooters after reading this intellectually stimulating and

highly erudite book." --Cyril H. Wecht, MD, JD, past president,

American Academy of Forensic Sciences and past president, American

College of Legal Medicine

"As a career physicist in the national security sector, G. Paul

Chambers is a uniquely qualified guide to the assassination of

President John F. Kennedy. Instead of theorizing or demonizing, he

offers a fascinating defense of the scientific method through history

and applies that method to the oft-distorted JFK forensic evidence. He

dismantles the bad science at the core of Vincent Bugliosi's flabby

Reclaiming History and politely punts the fantasy that the Zapruder

film was altered. What remains, he reveals, is a body of scientific

evidence about JFK's murder that is increasingly consistent, self-

authenticating, verifiable, and definitive." --Jefferson Morley,

author of Our Man in Mexico: Winston Scott and the Hidden History of

the CIA

"In Head Shot, G. Paul Chambers offers an original and scientifically

credible account of the JFK assassination. He presents new material

proving the existence of more than one assassin. It is an important

contribution to the continuing controversy over this important event

in American history." --Michael L. Kurtz, professor of history (ret.),

Southeastern Louisiana University

Sounds like he gets part of it right-----the new definitive should be head shots.

There were two shots in close succession that hit JFK's head.

And it definitely took more than one gun.

Correct!

Correct!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Quite Incorrect! 1.8 to 1.9 seconds is more than sufficient time to operate the Carcano, acquire the target, and complete the third/last/final shot sequence. (Which by the was IS NOT the Z313 impact).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nevertheless, a 66.6% rating still equates to a "failing grade".

only disagreement with the above, Tom: it wasn't Oswald doing the shooting.

Hope all is well down your direction...

Tom Purvis

Tom,

In your scenario, 1) How many times did Oswald fire at JFK, and 2) To which Z-film frames do those shots correspond?

Thanks,

--Thomas

As the astute David Healy has already pointed out, it has never been demonstrated sufficiently that Oswald was in fact the Sixth Floor Shooter, and I have previously requested that Tom Purvis and others who would like to discuss this objectively to refer to him as the Sixth Floor Shooter as Oswald was clearly on the first or second floor of the TSBD when the shooting took place.

I don't doubt that the Sixth Floor Shooter could have gotten off three shots in the time allotted, it has been clearly demonstrated that Oswald was not that person, simply because he was not in a position to do so, and because he never descended the stairs from the Sixth Floor to the Second floor, where he was was, according to the official story, encountered by a policeman and an TSBD official.

Let me rephrase the first question. In your scenario, Tom, how many times did the sixth-floor shooter (Oswald or whomever) fire at JFK?

Thanks,

"it wasn't Oswald doing the shooting."

Since I was in Athens, Ohio working at the time, can't say one way or another.

He most assuredly had the marksmanship ability.

But then again, were I to attempt to frame someone, I most assuredly would not pick some poor shooter.

"In your scenario,"

If it were "my scenario" then it would undoubtedly have no more merit than does most of the other BS which circulates on the subject.

But, in partial answer to your questions:

A. It is unknown as to who the shooter was. LHO most assuredly had the marksmanship ability as well as a potential motive.

That however does not mean that he was the person responsible for actually pulling the trigger.

B. Three shots were fired, and three shots struck JFK. (Exactly why would anyone believe otherwise????--Because the Warren Commission told them that of the three shots fired, one shot completely missed????----What complete idiot accepts and believes the Warren Commission??????)

C. The "scenario" has been presented here multiple times. And, is not too difficult to resolve when one recognizes that the Z313 impact was in fact the second shot fired. (Of course, it also helps somewhat to be in possession of the SS as well as the FBI assassination re-enactment survey plats which show the impact/reaction location for the first as well as the third/last shot fired.

Kind of leaves out the "guesswork".

John;

As a first time poster, let me inform you and others that to a reasonable degree of certainty, LHO was the person who pulled the trigger of the weapon that is responsible for the death of JFK.

now, just let me back up here--I was prepared to make a picture at the very instant the President was shot. I had refocused to 15 feet because I wanted a good closeup of the President and Mrs. Kennedy, and that's why I know that it would be right at 15 feet, because I had prefocused in that area, and I had my camera almost to my eye when it happened and that's as far as I got with my camera.

There was flesh particles that flew out of the side of his head in my direction from where I was standing,

Mr. ALTGENS - I would say that--I know there was one in between. It is possible there might have been another one I don't really know, but two, I can really account for.

Mr. LIEBELER - And that's the first one and the last one?

Mr. ALTGENS - Yes, sir.
