Response to Jetboy (Reply #29)

94. They can't. As soon as you entertain that possibility, the whole Warren Theory crashes down.

 

They painted themselves into a tiny corner where the only way that Warren theory can hold up is if one believes a whole chain of truly fantastic things, any one of which blows the Warren theory out of the water. And so they resort to insults and ridicule while huddling in that little corner.

There are too many incredible (meaning "not credible" claims for that theory to be believed by any reasonable person. Any one of these points being wrong blows the Warren theory completely out of the water:

1) No Motive. Oswald had no profile of a lone nut. His background was very, very interesting, but not that of a deranged killer. And there was no evidence that he had any hatred of Kennedy or any other motive. Oswald evidently made no attempt to cover his tracks and made no escape plans. But he didn't give himself up either.

2) Impossible timing of shots. The timing of the shots is way beyond improbable. In the Warren Commission 3-shot theory, we are asked to believe that the first shot was a miss (no problem there.) The next shot was about 4 seconds later. (No problem there.) That second shot entered JFK's back from the rear. (That's a problem considering how low Kennedy was in the car, but OK.) And finally the killing shot was only about 1 second after the second shot. That one is completely impossible. Has there ever been any test by any marksman using that weapon that proved it possible to execute two direct hits at that distance on a moving target when there is only one second between shots to reset and re-aim? There is a lot of argument about whether the TOTAL duration was 5 seconds or 8 seconds. That completely misses the point. Under the Warren theory, the two hits had to happen within about a second of each other. Show me the tests where the average marksman of Oswald's training and skill can do that using that weapon.

3) The Magic bullet. The whole magic bullet thing is beyond any plausibility and I won't regurgitate that. The theory about its trajectory is bad enough, but then we are expected to believe that this same charmed bullet ended up at Parkview in an unused gurney, fully intact. It just fell out of Connally's body and jumped into the gurney, even though significant fragments of what was supposed to be the same bullet still remained inside Connally. This bullet passed through Kennedy's back, out his shoulder, ricocheted off bones, fracturing some of them and yet was fully intact, and just happened to be lying there on the gurney. No. I don't think so. This strains the imagination of any reasonable person. And combined with all the other problems of the Warren theory, no reasonable person can accept that as presented.

There are lots of other questions that the Warren authoritarians scream and shout about, and any of them would blow the Warren theory out of the water. But the above three are huge and have never been answered adequately. No reasonable person could conclude that the Warren theory is correct beyond a reasonable doubt -- much less the 100% certainty that some folks claim here.
