I agree, Pete, that Kinney's behavior was not part of a plot. I suspect he realized upon his discovery of the bullet that his cleaning up of the limo even a little bit was problematic, and that he sought to avoid this by planting the bullet on what he assumed was Kennedy's stretcher.


If an agent found a bullet, then he should have immediately turned it over to an FBI agent, or even a Dallas Police Official (assuming one was present, who was not part of any criminal conspiracy.  And I have interviewed a number of them and believe there were definitely honest Dallas Police officers).  But getting back to SS Agent Kinney:  It was not his job --or responsibility--to theorize about the shooting -the murder of President Kennedy -- and to put the bullet (obviously, an important item of evidence, whether it was actually "fired in anger" during the assassination, or planted on a stretcher") on the "proper" stretcher; i.e.,  to engage in personal hypothesizing as to where the bullet "belonged."  

 If a person is playing cards in a Las Vegas casino, and --having been dealt his cards (one of which is an Ace of Spades) -- he notes that a second "Ace of Spades" has now being dealt during the games.  At the point, what is his proper course of action?  At that point, he realizes the card deck is corrupted.  (And perhaps the dealer is complicit).

Now back to Agent Kinney, and your explanation for his (supposed) behavior, if we are to believe his story.  "Kinney's behavior was not part of a plot," you reassuringly intone.  And you profess to know that?  How, may I ask? But then you play psychologist, and go further,  providing an excuse for his behavior. The  action Agent Kinney then took (according to this account he has provided)  was legitimate because, you say,  "he sought to avoid this (any controversy)  by planting the bullet on what he assumed was Kennedy's stretcher." 

If he was a cop investigating a burglary, do you think it would be legitimate for him to re-arrange the crime scene so that the burglary --after re-arrangement --  "would make more sense"?

Is that proper?

This reminds me of the bad (and very dark) joke of the "innocent explanation" for the grassy knoll shooter. After his arrest, the accused claims he was just deer hunting, and had heard that a bunch of deer would be passing by, going "east to west"  on Elm Street. So that explained his presence on the knoll, with his gun.  But then, to his complete surprise, the Presidential motorcade passed, and --because of all this mental confusion --he fired a shot, thinking he was shooting at a deer.

Wow. . if any of the assassins had gone on trial, I'll bet their attorney would love to have had you as a consultant; or, better yet, present on the jury.

Bill Moyers testified under oath to the HSCA that he gave the order

for the removal of the bubbletop. Others have also made that claim.

One of the oddities of this case is that Moyers has never written

the memoir many would have assumed he would write and that

would sell many copies, whatever he writes about the events and people in his life.
