Breakability: CE-399 and the Diminishing Velocity Theory
The Single-Bullet Theory
I don't know why you posted this. It destroys the WC.
John Hunt is an excellent researcher and I helped him with his research
and he helped me. One sentence typifies the difference between the
conspiracy researchers and the WC defenders:
Mr. John Hunt, Kennedy Assassination Investigator, for supplying hard to
get material from the Archives and spotting distracting errors in the text.
The fact remains that the WC defenders never do any actual research and
very rarely visit the National Archives to examine the original
materials for themselves. John Hunt did. I did.
There are still a few points that John made which I disagreed with or
thought were not forceful enough. He is too much of a gentleman to come
right out and call the WC defenders liars.
Either Sturdivan was simply ignorant of the H.P. White Laboratory tests
which show the ACTUAL measured velocities for Oswald's ammo or he
realized that he had to lie about them to get the velocities he needed.
Maybe he was not allowed to see the FBI documents which I copied.Loading Image...Loading Image...
But if you use them you can calculate exactly how many FPS the bullet
loses per foot of flight.
John correctly critiques the Australian tests, but overlooks the fact
that their bullet totally missed the WRIST simulation. You can get a
bullet that looks undamaged if you don't hit the wrist, but when
Edgewood did the nose is smashed.Loading Image...
But John did not mention a couple of things that I have pointed out
before. The discrepancy of the missing fragments from CE 399.
He seemed to overlook the fact that the hole in the base of the bullet
is where they drilled out some bullet lead to test.
Then several fragments of lead remain in Connally's wrist and thigh.
We don't know how much because they were never measured or tested. They
could be today, but the WC defenders won't allow it because it might
destroy their precious lies.
Then there is another fragment which was unaccounted for the FBI
scratched out the text about it on their report because it may not have
come from CE 399:
I can make out the first words that were crossed out: the Governor's
But what is the third word which the FBI desperately tried to hide?
If we were allowed to examine the original document we might be able to
figure out what they were trying to hide and why.
When I examined original HSCA documents at the National Archives I was
able to reconstruct the words they had erased with WhiteOUT by seeing
and feeling the typewriter impressions on the back of the pages. Also,
using bluelihght may let us see the black ink text obscured by pencil marks.
I also suggested to John that some type of SBT might be possible if we
simply remove the wrist from the equation and assign that to another bullet.
What I call a Modified Single Bullet Theory.
