The Warren (C)om(m)ission
On these pages we will show beyond any doubt that the Warren Commission was a fraud designed to cover up the crime by the people that had most to gain from hiding the truth from the american public and the rest of the world.
The Warren Commission can be exposed as a fraud on many accounts, and in no way do we aim to be exhaustive here, but let us start with the excellent analysis of Professor James Fetzer as outlined in his book "Murder on Dealey Plaza", which can also be found here
The official account of the crime , known as The Warren Report after Earl Warren, Chief Justice of the United States, held that JFK was killed by a lone, demented assassin named Lee Harvey Oswald, who fired three shots with a high-velocity rifle from a sixth floor window of the nearby Texas School Book Depositiry, scoring two hits and one miss, which struck a distant concrete curb, and slightly injured by-stander James Tague.
The Warren Commission
The presumptive shots that hit , however, wreaked considerable damage. The first is alleged to have entered the President's back at the base of his neck, traversed his neck without impacting any bony structure, exited his throat at the level of his tie, entered the back of texas Governor Jogn Connally (riding in a jump seat in front of him), shattering a rib, exiting his chest, impacting his right wrist, and deflecting into his left thigh.
The bullet supposed to have performed these remarkable feats is alledged to have been recovered virtually undamaged from a stretcher at Parkland Hospital, where both men were rushed for treatment, and has come to be known as "the magic bullet". The other struck JFK in the back of his head and killed him.
For the official government account of the death of JFK to be true, the following three hypotheses have to be true:
H1 - JFK was hit at the base of the back of his neck by a bullet that traversed his neck without hitting any bony structures and exited his throat at the level of his tie.
H2 - JFK was hit in the back of his head by a bullet fired from the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository, as its diagrams display, causing his death.
H3 - These bullets were fired by a sole assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, using a high-powered rifle, which was identified as a 6.5 mm Italian Mannlicher Carcano.
As a point of deductive logic, if any of these hypotheses is false, then any account that entails from them cannot be true. Yet it is surprisingly easy to show that all three are false.
H1 is an anatomical impossibillity, because the bullet would have had to impact bony structures. David W. Mantik, M.D., Ph.D., who holds a Ph.D. in physics and is also board-certified in radio oncology, has studied X-Rays of the President's chest. He has used the cross-section of a body whose upper chest and neck dimensions were the same of those of JFK and performed a simple experiment. Taking the specific locations specified by the HSCA for the point of entry at the base of the back of the neck and the point of exit at the throat, he has drawn a straight line to represent the trajectory that the bullet would have to have taken from that point of entry to that point of exit. Any such trajectory would intersect cervical vertebrae. Here is a visual CAT scan of such a trajectory:
In addition, the backwound was probed by Dr. Humes during the autopsy in Bethesda. It was determined it was only a shallow wound with no exit. This is all in the evidence of the Warren Report. Hence it is simply a lie that the bullet traversed the neck and exited at the throat. This is from the notes of FBI agent James W. Sibert, who was present at the autopsy:
“During the last stages of this autopsy Dr. Humes located an opening which appeared to be a bullet hole, which was below the shoulders and two inches to the right of the middle line of the spinal column.”
(That happens to be five and a half inches below the neck line, not the location the Warren Report indicated)
“This opening was probed by Dr Humes with a finger, at which time it was determined that the trajectory of the missile entered at this point and entered in a downward position of 55 to 60 degrees. Further probing determined that the distance traveled by this missile was a SHORT distance, in as much that the end of the opening could be felt with a finger. In as much that no complete bullet of any size could be located in the brain area, and likewise no bullet could be located in the back or any other area of the body, as determined by total-body X-rays and inspection revealing that there was no point of exit. The individuals performing the autopsy were at a loss to explaining why they could not find no bullets.”
H2 is the hypothesis that a bullet fired from the sixth floor of Texas School Book Depository entered the back of JFK's head and killed him. The building in question was horizontally located to the President's rear, while the sixth floor of that buidling was considerably above the President. Therefore, any such bullet must have entered the President's head from above and behind. That much is indisputable. No photographs of the President's injuries were published at the time, but The Warren Report did provide drawings. The drawings of the head wound therefore show a trajectory from above and behind, as the official account requires. Stewart Galanor, author of Cover-Up, however, has juxtaposed the official drawing with frame 312 of the Zapruder film, which the Warren Commission itself regarded as the moment before the fatal headshot occurring at frame 313:
When the President's head is properly positioned, the Commission's own drawing displays an upward rather than a downward trajectory. If the official drawing of the injury is correct, then the conjecture that the President was hit from above and behind cannot be true. And if the President was hit from above and behind, the official drawing must be false. Hypothesis H2 cannot possibly true. To learn more about the head wounds click here or here
Hypothesis H3 finally, maintains that three bullets were fired by Lee Harvey Oswald using a high-powered rifle, which the Warren Commission also identified as a 6.5 mm Mannlicher-Carcano. As many other authors have also observed, the Mannlicher-Carcano that Oswald is supposed to have used, is a 6.5 mm weapon, but it is NOT high velocity. Its muzzle velocity of approximately 2000 feet per second means that it qualifies as a medium-to-low velocity weapon.
The death certificates, The Warren Report, articles in the Journal of the AMA, and other sources state that the President was killed by wounds inflicted by high-velocity missiles. But the Mannlicher-Carcano is not a high-velocity weapon. Consequently, Lee Harvey Oswald could not have fired the bullets that killed the President. Thus hypothesis H3 cannot be true. This discovery is especially important, because the extensive damage sustained by JFK's skull and brain could not possibly have been inflicted by a weapon of this kind. The major trauma the President endured had to have been inflicted by one or more high velocity weapons.
The hypotheses H1, H2 and H3, therefore, are not only false but are provably false. If any or all of these hypotheses are false, then the Warren Report cannot be salvaged, even in spite of the best efforts of the Geralds Posners and ABC's of the world. Among the central findings of the Warren Commission therefore, the only one that appears to be true is the least important, namely that bystander James Tague was hit by debris from a bullet that missed its target, struck a distant curb instead and caused him minor injury.
