Setting the Record Straight: Yes, there was a cover-up. The JFK assassination, Lee Harvey Oswald and the 'Magic Bullet Theory'

Setting the Record Straight: Yes, there was a cover-up.  The JFK assassination, Lee Harvey Oswald and the 'Magic Bullet Theory'

1. Lee Oswald was given a nitrate test after his arrest, and it proved that he had not fired a rifle that day.

2. According to his fellow Marines, Oswald was a mediocre marksman at best.

3.The most skilled FBI sharpshooters tried to duplicate the shooting feat within the time frame set out by the Zapruder film and failed.

4. The Mannlicher-Carcano rifle, the weapon Oswald was alleged to have used, is well-known to gun dealers as one of the least accurate rifles ever made, and the particular one Oswald allegedly used had a defective sight.

5. Warren Commission staffer (later U.S. senator) Arlen Specter's "Magic Bullet Theory," which attempted to account for the seven wounds in Kennedy and Texas Gov. John Connally with only two bullets, defies the laws of physics and strains the credulity of any reasonable person.

6. Fifty-one eyewitnesses interviewed by the Warren Commission testified that they heard or saw shots from the grassy knoll of Dealey Plaza in front of the president, not the Texas School Book Depository in back, meaning there had to have been a second gunman.

7. The Zapruder film clearly shows the president's head and body snapped back when hit by the third shot, meaning that it came from in front, not behind.

8. The House Select Committee on Assassinations' 1979 investigation concluded that there was a fourth shot and a "probable conspiracy," based on acoustical evidence contained on a police Dictabelt recorder. In 2001, a more sophisticated acoustical study published in Science and Justice, a publication of Britain's Forensic Science Society, confirmed the House committee's conclusions.
