Another Take on the JFK Assassination

October 16, 2012

I recently read 11/22/63 by Stephen King – one of my favorite authors – and really enjoyed the book.

Mister King says that he is convinced that Oswald acted alone, from all the research he has done on the subject. I cannot agree because I have probably done even more research on the subject.

He says that Conspiracy Theorists like to see structure and reason behind all things and just can’t believe Oswald was a random act, which he claims it was: the random act of a maladjusted person seeking fame in one mad act.

Hmm, I think I heard the same thing describing the assassin in an earlier event… John Wilkes Booth was the fellow’s name, I believe.

And that’s why I am not a big fan of the “random act” theory by the Government investigators. So much of the JFK assassination mirrored the event some ninety-eight years before. It is this fact that makes the identification of Oswald seem spurious.

And why would anyone think the physical evidence proves there was only one shooter? It is so far away from reality that you have to invent the “magic bullet” to explain the facts.

Plus the Zapruder film distinctly shows Kennedy’s head blown toward the back. An “expert” says it was the shot from the rear that caused Kennedy’s head to jerk forward only to recoil when his chin hit his chest…

Well, yeah, but what about the marvelous pink spray blowing out behind the President’s head? Did the particles of blood and brain also recoil against something or were they simply continuing the momentum from the bullet fired from the front of the President’s vehicle?

Yes, it is easy to research the assassination and come away with the same result as the congressional investigation, or you can actually do a little more analytic survey and see the patterns behind peoples actions.

Especially when the pattern is such a close duplication of an earlier event.
