The throat wound itself was also much too small to have been made by a 6.5mm FMJ projectile, either entrance or exit. Its size is indicative of having been made by a .22 caliber projectile consistant with a Remington Fireball as presented by Bob Vernon in the James Files scenerio.(I know Bob! James Files is claiming the kill-shot, but I've seen many occasions where multible shooters have argued over just who made a kill-shot, from combat situations to deer hunters arguing over who gets to tag the deer, each one believing he fired the fatal shot. Sam McClung's work on the photo evidence proves to me at least, the presence of a possible hit-team positioned at that location, which is also consistant with the James Files scenerio. Also, consistant with the Files scenerio is the discovery at that location of a .222 Remington cartridge which developer, Wayne Leek chambered his Fireball prototypes to fire.
As one of several hundred head-shot survivors during the Viet Nam war, I/we stand as living proof that FMJ bullets do not produce the kind of massive trauma that occured in the JFK case. I was hit by a 7.62x39mm bullet probably fired from a Chinese made SKS sniper rifle, by a VC sniper located in a tree-stand and shooting at approximately a 30 degree downward angle of trajectory. This would be very close to the alledged LHO scenerio.
The bullet impacted with sufficient force as to completely bowl me over in a Forward direction. So much for Jet-Effect and Neuro-Muscle spasms! JFK was killed by a bullet designed for maximum expansion/explosive properties, and which was fired from somewhere to his front.
In addition to all of this, I would like to add that I am now in possession of additional proof that the origional CE-399 was in fact, a 6-groove bullet that could never have been fired through any Carcano rifle, which I will present in the near future, so get ready for round two Mr. Keating.
Also, the two spent cartridges alledgedly discovered are in fact, 6.5x54mm Mannlicher Schoenauer cartridges which cannot be chambered in any Carcano rifle. This can be readily determined by simply measuring the shoulder angle of the two spent cartridges on any high resolution photo, using a precision protractor and comparing it to a Carcano cartridge. These two cartridges also possess counter-bored neck-steps which is a feature not found on Winchester/Western ammunition.
The unfired cartridge alledgedly recovered is a European made Carcano cartridge with a Cupra/Nickle jacketed bullet and a banded neck-crimp, features that are not found in Winchester/Western ammunition, or any other American made ammo for that matter. Also present is the odd sized Berdan primer, another feature not found on American made ammunition.
Neutron Activation Analysis of the alledged kill-shot bullet fragments proves that they are not by any stretch of the imagination, either connected to CE-399 or even made by Winchester/Western and any assertions that the results are inconclusive is pure bunk. The quantity and distribution ratio of antimony, silver, and copper is much too disparate to be part of the same batch and the silver content of CE-399 is far too high to be consistant with Winchester/Western ammunition due to the fact that the lead bearing ore from Colorado which is the major scource of bullet lead is some of the purest on Earth with virtually no detectable quantities of silver, arsenic, or other contaminates. [note:] My scource here on the bullet lead is Paul Dicamillo of Dicamillo Mining Co. of Leadville, Colorado.
The work done by jerrymac shows the presence of at least two different rifles designated CE-139/C2766 and that one of them is a very rare ceremonial rifle known as a Moschettieri del Duce Carcano which was possibly smuggled into the US after WWII by General Walker who commanded a special forces battalion in Italy and who was in a position to recieve the surrender of the Gardia del Duce or Mussolini's Guard along with their ceremonial rifles. Also Jack White has produced evidence of 3 different rifles, two of them with distinctly different front sight blades, one of which is of a shark-fin configuration, while the other has what Jack calls a derby-hat configuration.
Researcher Walt Cakebread as well as a number of other researchers discovered Carcano rifles, each alledged to be the assassination weapon, but which possess sling-swivels mounted in different positions. One bottom-mounted and the other Side-mounted.
Edgewood Arsenal reports indicate that the rifle presented to them for testing was entirely too defective to be safely fired until it had been reworked by a gunsmith. They specifically cited a rusted out action and a faulty firing-pin as well as a misaligned scope, yet the FBI's forensic laboratory reported the rifle they recieved was well oiled and in good working condition. However, as researcher Walt Cakebread observed, the brown paper bag that the FBI alledged LHO used to transport the disassembled rifle in possessed not a trace of oil, even though brown paper sucks up oil like a lamp-wick.
Lt. Colonel William "Craig" Roberts, Infantry USAR and 26 year veteran of the Tulsa, Oklahoma PD, and former Marine sniper, Vietnam who is the author of the internationally published books: "The Walking Dead: A Marine's Story of Vietnam," "One Shot--One Kill: America's Combat Snipers," "Combat Medic--Vietnam," "Police Sniper" and "Kill Zone: A Sniper Looks at Dealey Plaza" has written extensively on the impossibility of the SBT and has declared in no uncertain terms, no way, not LHO, not with that rifle and not from that position.
Gunnery Sargent, Carlos(Gunny) Hathcock, the USMC's premier sniper and chief instructor of the Marine Corps Sniper's School at Quantico, Virginia conducted extensive firing tests while approximating the conditions of Dealey Plaza as closely as possible and proved to his satisfaction the impossibilty of both the SBT as well as the LN scenerio.
Finally, through an inside scource whose identity I am as yet under constraint from revealing, I have learned that Colonel Albert Francis Carone US Army and principal bagman for Oliver North and George Bush's efforts to illegally support the Contra's War against the Sandanista government of Daniel Ortega was positioned on a roof-top at Love Field on Nov.22nd, 1963 with a high powered rifle but was unable to get off a shot.
What we have here is not only a conspiracy to kill JFK, but also another conspiracy to frame LHO by evidence fraud and yet another conspiracy to obstruct justice by preventing any judicial examination of the case, all committed on a massive scale with the American people as victims, and the future of our Republic hanging in the balance.
This amounts to treason on a scale never before encountered in the annals of American history, and as far as I'm concerned, anyone and everyone, who supports the official position in light of the aformentioned facts, as well as the other evidence brought to light by the excellent researchers in this case, for whatever reason, is guilty of aiding and abetting that treason.
As for the principal conspirators, while I am against capital punishment on general principals, in this case I would gladly build the scaffold, pay for the rope, and personally pull the lever.
