I understand this is the skunk works, where you can post pretty much anything, but care to elaborate? Is this meant to be funny or is this your legitimate theory?
So I went and watched the original film flipped back to normal with the cut frames intact and while I have no idea if any of it is the reality or all coincidence or craziness but.... *The bullet should come from the back of the car, the right in the correct view. Especially when mirrored, it becomes apparent only then (and you will say yea I know....but no, you don't. You have to go see what I am talking about its a totally new experience) that the bullet comes from the front but more importantly, the driver jams on the brakes (this part is what is cut) and instead of Jackie being surprised and jumping out we see the woman in the back seat wait for the jamming halt, reaching over with the acknowledgment of the man in back, and makes the motion you would make if slicing someone's throat open ear to ear. As she finishes, he grabs his throat and falls forward only THEN to be struck by a bullet from the front and only moves his head back like if you shot an already dead body or unconscious dying person.

Okay sold. So what is the Who and Why of the direction?

President Kennedy was killed because he did not adequately protect himself from the many enemies he certainly knew he had. It could have been so many things.
The short list:
-Castro, Bay of Pigs and Missile Crisis
-Pressure on the Mafia
-Attempting to disolve the CIA
-Pulling the Country out of VietNam
-Space collaboration plans with the Soviet Union.
Each one of these had money, power and fortune ramifications that made some big enemies. Most certainly one of these and probably more.
All of these motives plus a few more have been used as layers of the onion of suppression.Presidents always make decisions which make enemies....but this was not a revenge killing by the Mafia on behalf of the Cubans or themselves nor was it an overt action by the CIA nor was it a group in opposition to USA/Soviet relations... and for the record it was an indirect coup de tat.....it was more about who got to pick up the scraps after the mess was made than a directed action on the behalf and behest of any American interests....none of Kennedys contemporaries were powerfull enough or smart enough to pull of what was done.
Who did all of these groups listed answer to...and yes there is an answer.
