Response to BlueStreak (Reply #52)

57. Briefly.

There were two bullets matched to Oswalds gun. The first is the "magic" bullet, and, despite what Oliver Stone says, the trajectory is completely unremarkable once you take into account the placements of the seats in the car. Also, again despite what Oliver Stone says, there is no scientific reason to doubt that the bullet would have remained in one piece, since it had a full metal jacket, and it went through a lot of soft tissue, which slowed it down a lot before it hit any bone in Connelly.

The bullet was not found completely intact, it was still in one piece, but it was visibly deformed. The recovered bullet weighed about 160 grains less than a pristine bullet, whereas the lead recovered from Connelly's arm weighed about 130 grains.

The second matched bullet is the bullet that hit JFK in the head, which broke apart. Two bullet fragments were found inside the car, and these were matched to Oswald's rifle. I'm not sure where you are reading about the assassination that is leaving out these key pieces of information.

As far as sealed information, very little information remains sealed. Even though the principals are all dead, that doesn't mean that everyone that might have a privacy interest is dead.
