This is an unusually short thread from me here I think, but a short while ago now I checked my emails to find that someone was nice enough to send me
a very interesting article posted by Chris Beattie (posted yesterday now) called "Surgeon recounts JFK operation."
In a summary, this article discusses how Dr. Robert McClelland, one of the Parkland hospital doctors who was present in the operating room in the
immediate aftermath of the assassination of JFK in 1963, saw the state of the president, particularly his head wound which he believes points towards
a second shooter from the grassy knoll, as well as how he, JFK, took his last few breaths after desperately holding onto life after being shot
multiple times in Dealey Plaza at approximately 12:30pm, 22nd, November, 1963.
In this article he recalls, even after all these years, the events which took place, some of which I found fascinating - I imagine others who are
quite interested in this case would feel the same as well so I felt as though It was certainly worth posting in a new thread here.
Here is the full article: Surgeon recounts JFK operation
Here are some snippets of particular interest:
Some pieces seemingly fell from the gun -- or guns -- of Kennedy's killer.
"My supposition, and that of a lot of people, is that the first shot probably was fired from the sixth floor of the [Texas School Book
Depository]...whether by Oswald or someone else, I don't know," McClelland told Rotarians. "The next shot apparently came from behind the picket fence
by the grassy knoll -- all kinds of things indicate that is indeed what happened."
Perry told reporters minutes later that it looked like an entrance wound -- meaning the shot had come from somewhere other than the sixth floor of
the Depository. Referencing a recently published book about the assassination, McClelland said Secret Service agents allegedly accosted Perry after
his statement and told him never to say it again.
"After the assassination, if you ever mentioned anything about it to Dr. Perry, he would tell you, 'I don't want to talk about it,' and he would
really get angry if you pressed him about it," McClelland said. "We always wondered why that was."
The team, which also included Drs. Charles J. Carrico and Charles Baxter, afterward sat, dazed, in a nearby nurse's station. Secret Service agents
gave them note pads and asked each to write his impressions of the president's wounds.
Their notes later became evidence in the Warren Commission's investigation of the assassination. Perry eventually changed his initial story and said
the bullet hole near Kennedy's Adam's apple was an exit wound.
Despite one obvious mistake at the beginning of the article it seemed to be quite an interesting one overall, and which certainly points towards a
conspiracy as so many on this forum, including myself, believe. And most importantly It's coming from one of those few people still alive today who
was in a very unique position, one of those people who was actually in a position trying to save his (JFK's) life that day and undoubtedly saw his
wounds better than anyone else still around. Because of this it has to be highlighted that this is a fairly big story to come across and It's one,
given who it has come from, which has to be given a certain degree of credibility, in my opinion.
Unfortunately I can't find a video of this interview though, and I'm not even sure if one exists at all thus another reason why I'm starting up this
thread - I'd like some help. A short while ago I sent a quick email to the person who wrote the article to inquire about this a bit more. I'd greatly
appreciate others helping me to find a video of this interview as well. I don't doubt the validity of it of course, It's just very much so like to see
what was said, in full, myself really.
With that being so - Thank you for your time and I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts on this new revelation.
