Lee Forman Posted March 3, 2005 Share Posted March 3, 2005 Just some selections I found interesting. Page 9 "Well," said Mr.s Connally, "You can't say Dallas isn't friendly today." "The President jerked his head around....then [came] the second shot and his head exploded in blood..." "Turning to look, Governor Connally took the third bullet just below his shoulder blade." "For a chaotic moment, the motorcade ground to an uncertain halt." "Oh, no! Oh, no!" Jacqueline Kennedy cried over and over, tumbling across her husband's body to shield him. His arm reached out, his fist clenched...." "A Negro snatched up his child and dashed off; a motorcycle cop jumped the curb, drew his gun and chased him." Page 10 "One bullet had laid open the back of his head with bone-cruching force, burrowing with a wake of skull fragments into his brain. Another - or perhaps the same bullet - ripped his throat just below the Adam's apple." "The surgeon pulled on rubber gloves -- without stopping to scrub up or put on a surgical gown -- performed a tracheotomy, splitting the windpipe at the wound and placing the oxygen tube in the throat. Page 11 "The news didn't silence the insistence of Russia's propoganda organs that the slaying was the work of right-wing 'gangsters.' After Oswald's arrest, the party newspaper Pravda said police "obviously want to implicate the Communist Party..." "In the chaos of the scene, Oswald slipped once through the hands of the police. An employee of the Schoolbook Depository, he dashed out just as the first wave of police closed the building. One officer grabbed him at the door. "I work here," Oswald said. "I was on my way down to see what happened." The policeman let him go." "He left his gun behind, too - a sawed off, high powered 6.5mm Italian Army rifle with a four power telescopic sight." Page 15 "Lee Harvey Oswald insists, "I did not kill anyone." If this is a lie, it is not an ordinary lie; it is the key to the personality of a singular kind of assassin. As the diabolical psychologist in Richard Condon's "The Manchurian Candidate" says: '...The resenters, those men with cancer of the psyche, make the great assassins.'"
