What, did somebody throw an M-80 at his head? A bullet traveling through a body drags tissue and blood with it out of the body. There is no "jet effect."

An explosion on the front, right of his head
What they won't show you is a real live person replicating Oswald's act. In tests by trained marksmen afterwards, only one was able to replicate the three shots in the number of seconds that Oswald allegedly used. And he was shooting at a stationary target using a specially machined Mannlicher-Carcano, not Oswald's Mannlicher which was 'difficult' to operate(opening and closing the bolt) according to the police that examined it; and which scope did not have to be shimmed to line up the scope with the barrel, as Oswald's gun did when police test fired it.

The kennedy assasination leaves so many questions that its almost impossible to know where to begin, but a few things are quite clear to me. If you study the Z film carefully, you will see that
1) His head does indeed move forward slighlty before the violent backwards motion.
2) upon the apparent missile impact, ejecta flies MOSTLY forward from what we can see in the video, including what appears to be a sizeable chunk of bone (the Harper fragment, perhaps?)
JFK and Governer Connally both react seemingly at the same time - JFK pulls his hands up, and connaly jerks a bit, at the PRECISE same moment, right as JFK comes out from behind the sign.
These theings are almost undebateable.
On the flip side, there is evidence that makes it hard to believe that Oswald did it. The fact that he made it to the lunchroom without being out of breath or disturbed in any way, WITH a cold coke in his hand fresh out of the machine, within 60-90 seconds.
The autopsy photos, which contradict even THEMSELVES.
The testimony of the doctors at Parkland that day, and the testimony of DP witnesses. Almost ALL agree that the right REAR portion of his skull was blown off, blown away, blasted, etc. That certainly is not consistent with a shot from the TSBD building.
BUT - I said all that to say THIS - NEITHER are either of these scenarios consistent with a shot from the grassy knoll area. Jackie likely would have been injured by such a shot. It's a much sharper angle than most realize, and quite simply doesnt work for any of the injuries seen in the Z-film, described by the docs, or shown in the autopsy photos.

The version of the Z film that shows a large blob in the front of the head at the moment of impact is a fraud. The undoctored version shows two large flaps of skin 'splaying' up and out on either side of the tangential entrance wound through the right temple, though the two pieces remained attached to the scalp by skin tissue. Jackie carefully folded the pieces back into position as she cradled his head. At least one doctor at Parkland noticed a seam of raised, swollen tissue in the right temple where the fatal shot entered.
A motorcycle cop riding off to the left, rear of the presidential limo was hit by brain and bone matter, so hard that the officer thought that he himself had been shot. This is strongly indicative of a shot coming from the right, front of the vehicle, about where the grassy knoll was located.
And of course look at the reaction of all the witnesses in Dealey Plaza at the time. A large crowd ran in that direction immediately afterwards. Photographs immediately afterwards show motorcade watchers all looking in that direction. Between 2/3 to 3/4 of all witenesses heard shots from that direction. All the witnesses closest to the grassy knoll said the shots came from behind the fence. The Sheriff and Police Chief, riding in the car ahead of the president, both initially ordered their officers to that area via radio.
And at least one witness said he saw a man with a rifle running from the area behind the fence.

I believe it certainly to be a fact that the shot came from the front right. There is now the James Files issue to be scruitinised, which when added to Lady Bird Johnson appearing on camera stating " He stormed into the room in a fury and said after tomorrow those sons of bitches wont embarass us any more"
