    Re: Did Oswald kill Kennedy

    I know you are the worlds best shot blahblahblah. I said it was possible.

    John F. Kennedy assassination rifle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    CBS conducted a firing test in 1967 at the H. P. White Ballistics Laboratory located in Street, Maryland. For the test 11 marksmen from diverse backgrounds were invited to participate: 3 Maryland State Troopers, 1 weapons engineer, 1 sporting goods dealer, 1 sportsman, 1 ballistics technician, 1 ex-paratrooper, and 3 H. P. White employees. CBS provided several Carcano rifles for the test. Oswald's rifle was not used in this test. The targets were color-coded orange for head/shoulder silhouette and blue for a near miss. The results of the CBS test were as follows: 7 of 11 shooters were able to fire three rounds under 5.6 seconds (64%). Of those 7 shooters, 6 hit the orange target once (86%), and 5 hit the orange target twice (71%). Out of 60 rounds fired, 25 hit the orange (42%), 21 hit the blue portion of the target (35%), and there were 14 misses on the target (23%).

    One volunteer was unable to operate his rifle effectively so the following statistics are based on the 10 remaining shooters. The average time of all 10 was 5.64 seconds. The mode was 5.55 seconds and the mean was 5.70 seconds. The average for the top five shooters was 5.12 seconds, and for the bottom five shooters 6.16 seconds. There was a high occurrence of jamming during the test. On average the rifles jammed after 6 rounds. The most rounds fired without jamming were 14, 11, 10 in a row. The least was 0 (back to back).

Ray was one of my coaches when I was at the USO training Center at colorado springs. if you know how to lead a target its a simple shot

    Yes a secret service agent told me this. You'll have to wait till i decide to publish his comments though. He doesn't want it revealed yet for his family's safety.

    If several men cannot replicate , then worms will be everywhere...If they are successful, then doubts should no longer exist.
    I believe it has been tried, the FBI did it. I think the results are published in the Warren Report, I don't remember but I assume they were successful.

    Actually, there were about 50 eye-witness reports of seeing smoke or hearing a gunshot coming from the grassy knoll. That's in the Warren Report.

    Don't know, don't really care.

    Not long after Bay of Pigs, Cuban Missile Crisis and attacking organized crime...he drives slowly around a major city in an open topped car?

    How stupid can you get?

    I personally believe our own CIA killed Mr. Kennedy. With all the opposition Kennedy had with the Federal Reserve, the Military industrial complex as well as many others in the banking industry.

    There are better sources, but this is the first one that came up, and it just happens to agree with me...

    Re: Did Oswald kill Kennedy

    Two things changed back in 1963.

    Presidents no longer ride around in convertible cars.

    Police officers no longer parade the perp around in front of public news areas.

    The second one has as much importance as the first.
    Oswald's only statement after his arrest was a smiling "I'm just a patsy." It seems as though he found out too late who was the fall guy.
    Jack Ruby (who already knew that he had terminal cancer) just walked right up and silenced Oswald before the world. That is truly what Dallas has to be ashamed of, for allowing it to happen.

    Whether or not Oswald would have been believed when he spilled the beans was something that someone could not be troubled with. Ruby probably made more money for killing Oswald than we can possibly imagine. That's just a possibility. The other is that he Loved JFK so much that he was willing to be imprisoned for the rest of his life with cancer in order to kill Kennedy's killer.

    The Dallas popo screwed the pooch. Now we will never know. I'm glad that they've finally removed the X from the street. It was in the wrong place anyway.

    The CIA (IMO) allowed him to stay in the Dallas PD custody, because they knew Ruby was going to silence Oswald there. Otherwise, the Fed's would've had him elsewhere.

    Jack Ruby knew who was behind it. He even admitted it, without dropping names.
