My 1st wife work for a big lawyer in LA that was very close to RFK and work with him during the McCarthy hearings. I believe he or a partner had
possesion of the copy. I don't think his is still alive. He ended up as a Judge here in California.
I believe the origins of this copy of the Zapruder film was the 1 that went straight to H.L. Hunt from the original duplicator, while the others went
to Time/Life/FBI/CIA. Zapruder had contacts with Hunt, over many years and It's my understanding he had his copy within just 2-3 hours after the
assassination, and I know this to be a fact. (Zapruder may have been in Dealey Plaza under Hunt's orders-they were that close).This one copy was run
immediately to H.L. Hunt, the only undoctored version possibly in existance.
In the public released film, most of the debris from fatal head shots has been "cleaned up" making it not so gruesome. The cloud of debris was
visible for at least a second or more, not the 3 frames of the released Zapruder film.
Jim believes the copy (of a copy) I saw, came from Hunt (they knew each other). The color had faded quite a bit but the double headshot (Less than a
1/2 second apart) was quite evident and if that portion had not been edited out, we may have had people in the streets. The limo came to almost a
complete stop, the double headshots, and then and only then the driver pulls forward to the triple overpass. The through and through bullet hole in
the windshield next to SSA Greer may have caused him to bring the limo to a halt. It's must be hard to drive into incoming fire!!!!! I cut SSA
Greer a lot of slack in this area
Mr. George Whitaker, a Senior Engineer/Manager of the FoMoCo's Rouge Glass/windshield facility in Dearborn, MI came to work on Sunday Nov. 24, 1963
and entered his department, to his amazement, found the Presidential limo parked on the floor right in front of him. He asked his employees what was
going on. George examined the through and through, with shards on the inside of the windscreen indicating a shot from the front. It was the size of
a .22 cal.
His employees told him they were given instructions from higher up, to remove the damaged windshield and use it for a templete to create numberous
replacements and then to destroy the orinigal, which was done. The Presidential limo was back in the White House garage on Monday morning, as if it
had never left.
This interview with George Whitacker is available on the DVD series "The Men Who Killed Kennedy. It's on DVD volume 6-9 available through Jim's
Tague's site on ebay.
I'm sorry you doubt my comment about seeing an original, that's ok, I expected it, but wanted to state the facts as I had seen them. I consider
myself quite lucky to have seen it, but after viewing it I wish I hadn't. It was a horrific ending of our Presidents life and the bastards that did
it should rot in hell!!!! Not run this country.
I really expected someone to comment about the body bag I saw come off of Air Force 1 at Andrews. The slip of that cameraman showing the two gents
wisking away a body bag to an awaiting helo should have raised flags for anyone familiar with the case: A helo possibly the same helo landing at
Bethesda from Walter Reed, the 2 ambulances, 2 different coffins, JFK's body wrapped in a sheet or those that saw JFK brought to Bethesda in a body
bag, Honor Guards/No Honor Guards, ornate undamaged coffins to plain grey "damaged"shipping casket. Many many inconsistancies. Too many to
Most brought to light by David Lifton. Best Evidence is required reading to have at least a basic understanding of what happened to JFK's body and
the discrepancies between what was seen FIRST HAND BY AUTOPSY/PHOTO/X-RAY TECHS
and what was published in the Warren Commission Report. ARRB
testimony in .pdf or audio is also available on these same subjects @ history-matter.com. Check out SSA's James Sibert's MD-188, his depiction of
the rear exit wound. Naval Photo Tech Sandra Saunders comments about the photos and the print stock used is also insightful.
Sibert's JFK Headwound MD-188
1. CE399 when removed from the stretcher at Parkland, it has been testified to that it had a pointed end to it, quite different than the rounded
point of "WC's CE399". 3-4 people saw this pointed bullet at Parkland, but no one could identify the Warren Commissions CE399 during the
hearings. Phoney evidence. Beside, there were more than enough bullet fragments found in the limo and in Connolly that CE399 could not have in any
manner inflicted those wounds on JFK and Connolly and remained basically intact. There were more fragment remaining in John Connolly's leg and wrist
to disprove the almost completely intact "CE399".
2. Officer J.D. Tippitt was positively killed by a .38 automatic and the casings were marked "JMP" by DPD officer J. M. Poe at the scene. When
presented these casings by the Warren Commission, he refused to I.D. them as from the Tippitt scene because the casings did not contain his initials
on them. They were not the one he had picked up at the scene of the Tippitt murder. Marking of casing is SOP (Stand Operating Proceedures)
However, "a" Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested in the Texas Theater carrying a .38 revolver. LHO tried to fire two shot but were mis-fires. It was
later found the LHO's revolver had a damaged firing pin and could not have never fired off a round. More about this pistol later if there are further
questions. This pistol is one the keys to the entire assassination. Who
and why did someone give "a LHO" a defective pistol on the hopes he
would die in a shoot out at the theater.
3. How did "a" Lee Harvey Oswald shoot Tippitt with and automatic (leaving casings at the scene) and then be seen reloading a revolver (dropping
casings) along the way to the Texas Theater, only to have this revolver misfire because of a damaged firing pin 15 minutes later. Hmmmm...
4. Who or what was in the body bag. Remember, in a secure area, weapons are the last thing that come off an aircraft. So I'm eliminating weapons.
Only 2 possibilities, come on take a guess.
An ideas folks??
