Book says Secret Service agent shot Kennedy

BALTIMORE -- A new book based on research by a former Towson, Md.,
gun shop owner, concludes President John F. Kennedy was killed by
friendly fire from a Secret Service agent, The Baltimore Sun said Sunday.

Howard Donahue, 69, claimed ballistic evidence indicates the agent was
responding to the sound of gunshots on Nov. 22, 1963, and hit Kennedy
by mistake.

Donahue's story is in the book 'Mortal Error: The Shot that Killed JFK,'
written by Bonar Menninger and published by St. Martin's. It will be
released Wednesday with an initial printing of 125,000 copies.

Various assassination experts and Secret Service officials discounted
the book and David Belin, former lawyer to the Warren Commission,
said it is 'just wrong,' the Sun said.

'I hate the word 'cover-up,'' Donahue told the Sun. 'It sounds so sinister.
But the government was between a rock and a hard place. They did not
want to admit that Kennedy was shot in the head by their own man.
They tried to cover it up with the Warren Commission.'

Donahue believes Lee Harvey Oswald, the lone gunman identified by
the Warren Commission, shot at Kennedy but did not kill him, the Sun
said.

Donahue said an agent riding in the follow car of the Dallas motorcade
'rose heroically to return fire on the assassin but instead accidentally
triggered a round in the wrong direction,' the newspaper said.

The newspaper said the agent has retired and lives in the Washington,
D.C., area but did not use his name. He did not cooperate in writing
the book, the Sun said.

Larry Howard, director of the JFK Assassination Center in Dallas and a
firearms consultant on the film 'JFK,' said Donahue's theory is ridiculous.
He said the fatal shot came from the grassy knoll.

Donahue, a firearms enthusiast who took part in a 1967 re-enactment
of the assassination for CBS, operated a Towson gun shop for 12 years.
In 1981, he left the business and became a firearms examiner, investigating
accidents and testifying in court.

The Sun said Donahue believes Oswald fired twice -- not three times --
at Kennedy. His first bullet struck the pavement, spraying the limousine
with fragments, including some that struck Kennedy in the head.

A second, the so-called 'magic bullet,' penetrated Kennedy's neck
(probably a mortal wound) and hit Texas Gov. John Connally.

At that point, the newspaper said, an agent in a follow-up Cadillac
stood up with an AR-15 assault rifle, later to be known as the M-16.
As he turned toward Oswald's perch in the Texas School Book Depository,
he slipped backward and the gun fired, striking Kennedy, Donahue says.

'It has the pattern of the classic gun accident,' Donahue told the Sun.
'As freakish as the odds may seem, many gun accidents involve fantastic
odds.'

The Sun said Donahue has evidence to support his thesis:

--Examination of the line between entry wound and exit portal in the
skull, suggesting the fatal bullet moved from left to right, exploded
out the right side of the president's head; a bullet from the Book
Depository would have moved from right to left, exploding out his
face.

--The behavior of the fatal shot, which was consistent with a small
caliber, thin-jacketed, high-velocity round. It ruptured inside, leaving
metal droplets throughout the tissue that can be observed in autopsy
X- rays.

--The width of the entrance wound in the president's skull, measured
at the autopsy and from X-rays, was 6 millimeters, highly unlikely for
a 6.5mm shell from the Mannlicher-Carcano weapon used by Oswald.

--Several witnesses smelled gunpowder after the shooting, highly
unlikely from a rifle shot from five floors up and 88 yards away.

--Testimony placing the AR-15 rifle in the agent's hand at the time of
a third shot.

--Testimony from several witnesses that the sound of the shots came
from the cars.

--Testimony from Connally that the third shot was the loudest.

--Initial testimony -- later recanted -- from witnesses within the
Texas Book Depository that they only heard Oswald fire two shots.

Actually back and to the left is the single biggest myth in this case.
The President went straight back and bounced off the seat cushion. Had he
gone back and to the left he would have collided with Jackie. That is not
what happened.

His head was turned slightly toward Jackie as she tried to support his
left arm, but the shot knocked his head forward then his strong back and
neck muscles recoiled causing his torso to snap straight backward into the
seat cushion. Study it in any film taken from the other side and you will
see what really happened. Back and to the left is simply an optical
illusion.

Of course it is. All one has to do is observe where JFK is situated when
his shoulder blades contact the seatback. He is still in the RIGHT corner
of the car, just where he was sitting when he was first shot. After the
first strike, he leaned forward and to the left but remained on the far
right side of the car. His leftward lean created the illusion that he went
left when he was actually going straight back. Again, observe where he is
when he hits the seatback. That tells you all you need to know.
