There was so much evidence of people doing weird things and stuff left unexplained. There was that "magic bullet" and all. But in the end I determined that it was Oswald, and probably just Oswald. All the weird stuff is a result of people covering their own butts. They knew that any investigation into the assassination would drag everyone thru the mud and everyone was dirty. I can go down each and almost every piece of evidence and explain it. Many things seemed weird but there was a reason for those actions. Sometimes people were just screwing up.
Many times the evidence was analyzed only within the framework of a single person's mind and then released to the public within that framework. That led to all kinds of stuff that was wrong like the magic bullet. There was no magic bullet. An Australian team, among others, proved that you could reproduce most of the results and the shooting was VERY possible. There never was a timing problem. That was made up. The tree was never in the way. The biggest hindrance to the shooting was distractions, but that was mitigated by the location and boxes all around the perch.
And the truly damning evidence in the assassination comes from Oswald himself. If you study Oswald from birth to abortion you know what you find? A nutcase! The guy was nuts his whole life. He had problems everywhere he went and he never stayed anywhere very long. I can go into great detail on Oswald if you like.
Yes, there were many who stood to gain with the ouster of JFK but thats true of every President.
As much as I respect Oliver Stone, his movie got some things wrong and most of it was based on people's personal opinions not facts. The analysis of the book depository shooter's perch, where the shooting took place, was based on opinion. They thought it would be an easier shot if Oswald shot while the limo was approaching. Wrong! And if you were a hunter you'd know why. When the limo was approaching it was moving down in the shooter's field of view and when something is moving in that direction it is very hard to line up because you have to move your body up. You have to go from laying to kneeling to standing. Very awkward and would have exposed the shooter as the target would have been looking in his direction. Waiting until the car turned the corner was the right move. When the car is moving left to right its a much easier shot. Just one example of framed evidence.
All of the agencies involved were not completely sure of the true source of the assassination and they were more afraid that the USSR might take advantage of the situation or that Americans would blame the USSR and demand that the US attack. That would have meant WW-III. So everybody acted to cover up anything that did not point to Oswald as a lone shooter. Every case has conflicting evidence because there are lots of people doing stuff all the time irregardless of the crime and some of that stuff is illegal. Texas was heavily involved in gun running for example. One person involved in that was actually caught that day but when they figured out he had nothing to do with the assassination they let him go. I actually traced that guy's getaway route on Google Earth. Looong police chase. Longer than O.J.'s.
I could go on and on but you'd get bored long before I ran out of info. That is what you get with nearly 30 years of investigating (off and on). I know people want to believe that the GOV or LBJ or the FBI or the CIA or the MOB or the Commies or Castro or Aliens did it but in the end it was just a nut trying to prove himself, a little man trying to be a big man.
Yep, you gotta admit the Jack Ruby thing was weird on top of weird but in 1963 weird was pretty much what people did.
But the ENTIRE thing is SO similar to Bush Sr's and Ronald Reagan's mismatched running, and how Bush Sr. was a SKull and Bones member, said that he'd NEVER run with Reagan, and said that whole "new world order" quote at the Senate subcommittee hearing, and THEN Reagan had an assassination attempt made on his life, which would have made Bush Sr. president years earlier... this is SO SIMILAR to the LBJ connection to Kennedy, however, the Military had the MOST to gain from Kennedy's death. They and many in charge, feared that he would sell us out, that he refused to take part in the dirty dealings of the miltary-industrial complex and stood his ground on what he, personally, believed. Shortly after, he was assassinated. I just find that hard to believe that it's a mere coincidence, PLUS, as said, all the shady and unexplained things surrounding his death.
As far as the Zapruder film goes... As far as I'm concerned, the documentaries by History and Discovery, are completely Moot, BECAUSE: I watched them GUESS as to which gun and ammunition would have been used by a 2nd shooter... Now, given the GUESSED weapon and bullets, the remade head completely exploded, as he used high velocity and shattering rounds. So, they concluded in the end, that that spot wasn't where he was shot from... However, they concluded this without ANY kind of REAL knowledge of the weapon, type of ammunition, etc. which was used... So how in the hell could they make an accurate assumption without knowing what kind of ammunition or weapon was even used?!? ...I think the REAL truth behind the Kennedy assassination would be so outrageous, that NONE of us even would expect what REALLY happened. And besides, I don't know about the whole Ruby killing OSwald, but it seems to me that that was just too convenient.
