What more can be said about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy? A great deal, according to this author, a physicist and ballistics expert. Drawing on his fifteen years experience as an experimental physicist for the US Navy, the author demonstrates that the commonly accepted view of the assassination is fundamentally flawed from a scientific perspective. He claims that the physics behind lone-gunmen theories is not only wrong, but impossible. The author devotes separate chapters to the Warren Commission, challenges to the single-bullet theory, the witnesses, how science arrives at the truth, the medical and acoustic evidence, the Zapruder film, and evidence for at least a second rifleman in Dealey Plaza.

" Bugliosi is convince that Oswald was JFK's sole assassin and says so repeatedly throughout his book. After his arrest, Oswald was given a paraffin wax test of his hands and right cheek to determine if they showed traces of nitrates. None were present on his cheek. Presence of nitrates on his hand may indicate that he had fired a revolver; however, nitrates could have gotten on his hands from other sources, such as paper or ink. The absence of nitrates on his cheek is court-admissible evidence that he had not fired a rifle that day. If Oswald's motive was to become famous, why then when questioned by reporters after his arrest, did he say only that 'he didn't shoot anybody,' asked for legal representation, and stated, ' I'm just a patsy.' ?" "A terrific joke in this book: 'Conspiracy buffs, all lined up before God at the end of time, ask him, ' Tell us, God, who really killed President Kennedy?' When God replies, ' Listen, I'm just going to tell you one time and one time only, and then I want you to forget about this matter---Lee Harvey Oswald killed Kennedy and he acted alone.' The buffs nudge each other nervously and say, ' This is a lot bigger than we thought.' "

To understand the full inanity of the commenter below, look into the family background of Thomas Mallon -- and you'll understand the bogusness of rock..'s comment. (Fletcher Prouty called it right, and he was in the best position to know!) [A recent, and most current, enhanced clip of the Zapruder film (youtube) was displayed at the boingboing.net site on 11/15/13, and the head shot most obviously originated from the front, above, and most likely from the railroad overpass.]

Listening to the theories, one notices the tendency of their proponents to believe that the farther away they get from the moment and place of the assassination itself, the closer they will be to it's origin. As in "The X-Files", "the truth is out there," beyond where anyone has yet looked.
