309. Maybe she did only remember hearing two

Here is part of what Connally said in his testimony:

"Mr. SPECTER. And what is your reason for that conclusion, sir?
Governor CONNALLY. Well, in my judgment, it just couldn't conceivably have been the first one because I heard the sound of the shot, In the first place, don't know anything about the velocity of this particular bullet, but any rifle has a velocity that exceeds the speed of sound, and when I heard the sound of that first shot, that bullet had already reached where I was, or it had reached

135

that far, and after I heard that shot, I had the time to turn to my right, and start to turn to my left before I felt anything.
It is not conceivable to me that I could have been hit by the first bullet, and then I felt the blow from something which was obviously a bullet, which I assumed was a bullet, and I never heard the second shot, didn't hear it. I didn't hear but two shots. I think I heard the first shot and the third shot."

He probably did not hear the first shot that hit in front of the limo, perhaps because it was traveling faster than the speed of sound (just my guess) and/or because it was fired almost simultaneously with the second shot. The second shot is the one he describes as the first in which he starts to turn around to see if the President had been hit (and the President was indeed hit by that second shot). What he describes as he turns around to see if the President had been hit before he could see anything, he was wounded (that was the third shot but he describes it as the second.) The fourth shot was the kill shot which took the top of the President's head off, and it was fired from the front. This is the shot Connally thinks was the third shot.

Ms. Kennedy in her testimony quoted above said at first she thought she heard three shots (and she probably did, not hearing the first one which hit nothing.)

Connally mentions several times the rapidly of the shots. The four shots were actually fired within 7 seconds. To tell you the truth, I cannot imagine anyone actually involved in such a horrific event having the capacity to literally count the number of shots. I believe they testified from what they thought they remembered (which for sure is a lot better than I could have done.)
