Lee Harvey Oswald shot JFK.
Personally I disagree and It's, for the most part, for one simple reason - It's very unlikely Oswald, at the time of the assassination, had even left
the second floor employees lunchroom. Oswald was seen as late at 12:15 on this second floor lunchroom by a women called Carolyn Arnold. This being 10
minutes before the limousine was said to arrive (It was running 5 minutes late and reached Dealey Plaza at approximately 12:30), now with-in less than
2 minutes (I could be mistaken but I believe it was around 80 or so seconds) after the assassination had taken place a police officer by the name of
Marrion Baker had already ran into the building, stumbled across Oswlads boss Roy Truly who then directed him up the building, before finally
stumbling across Lee Harvey Oswald on the second floor employees lunchroom "calmly drinking a coke" - this being the same lunchroom he was seen in
before the assassination and of course now after it.
We know for a fact witnesses saw "someone" in the snipers nest in the minutes after the assassination and we know for a fact the weapon was incredibly
well hidden. Since we also have multiple witnesses who claim to have seen 2 figures in the snipers nest prior to the assassination, for arguments sake
we'll assume one was Oswald and the other was an accomplice who hid the weapon for him leaving him the simple task of traveling down the building -
but the problem for this theory is we also have witnesses inside the building who traveled down it in the aftermath of the assassination and none
reported seeing Oswald. Now let's go back to Marrion Baker - Is it really possible Oswald managed to travel from the 6th floor of the building all the
way down to the second floor, without being seen by a single witness remember, and then have time to pour himself a coke, catch his breath and collect
himself after just murdering the President of the Unites States? Now even I don't have to tell you how unlikely that is... and let's not forget his
very short time limit to achieve this feat.
So you see In my personal opinion Oswald never left this room during the assassination - he was seen before and after it had occurred after all - and
if he did then he certainly didn't travel up the building. Oh, and in case you was wondering, the elevators were jammed in the building at the time of
the assassination. It's actually for this reason that Baker and Truly ran up the building as opposed to taking the elevator - Oswald couldn't have
taken it also.
Now don't get me wrong here, there's really no doubt, in my mind anyway, that a shot or multiple shots did indeed come from the TSDB, but It certainly
doesn't seem to be at the hands of Oswald. And this certainly doesn't seem to be the only shooting location. I mean 3 shots off in 5.6 seconds (this
being the earliest time where the car actually came into view in the first place) with a piece of junk like the Mannlicher Carcano Rifle? Sorry but
It's incredibly improbable. It seems multiple weapons from multiple locations (perhaps the Dal-Tex building or the Grassy knoll. Maybe even both.)
were what really happened. Oswald himself isn't a great shot after all. He was even teased for his shooting ability by his peers while serving (And
yes he did serve - these hardly being the actions of a supposed communist).
The FBI conducted tests on November 27th, 1963, this being 5 days after the assassination, and their team couldn't even manage the time Oswald
supposedly set for them. Tests using real expert marksmen are the only tests that can seemingly achieve the same results.. and Oswald was certainly no
expert marksman. He was far from it. So sure you may be right and Oswald could've been a shooter... but I, for one, certainly doubt it and the above
is a quick insight into why.
I do think JFK was Assassination was more than one lone nut.
A statement echoed by some members of the Warren Commission itself would you believe. Hell, even John Connolly and his wife Nellie (she was in the
best position to see after all) refuse to believe the single bullet theory.
