That doesnt rule out the driver. E Howard Hunt didn't say ANYTHING about the secret service so I doubt he would have known about the fail safe. The driver was there to guarantee JFK died. If JFK got out of the kill zone alive after an attempt was made. ALL the conspirators would be in deep $h!t. So they made sure that wouldn't happen .
They controlled all the media so there was little risk of the driver being exposed. Besides its so hard to believe, who would buy it without absolute proof?

What I was getting at with the weapon in the upholstery is that it's more subtle and leaves no visual clues. If they had the SS in full compliance, they'd have been able to 'shoot' him at the same time as the assassin's shot, and tied it to an easily removable electronic so the driver could just press a button or something subtle.
I mean imagine that you are given the job. You'd feel like everyone was looking at you turn and shoot him. People don't realize that it depends highly on the observer and distractions. But you'd have to take the shot and not disturb Nellie and John, too. Don't you think they'd have noticed something funny, sitting right behind him?
You forgot my other question. What's the big payoff, for you, with 'proving' the driver did it?
