The Evidence that Convicts the CIA of the JFK Assassination, Part 4
My aim in writing my recent article “The Evidence that Convicts the CIA of the JFK Assassination” was to establish beyond a reasonable doubt that the CIA was complicit in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. As I stated in that article, there is no innocent explanation for the secret production of an altered, fraudulent copy of the film of the assassination. Once one concludes that the CIA did, in fact, produce an altered, fraudulent copy of the Zapruder film, one has automatically concluded that the CIA was complicit in the assassination itself. There is no way around that.
However, acknowledging the possibility that there could still be people who are still not convinced of the CIA’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, I decided to write this supplemental article to bolster my case with additional evidence, which I believe should convince those who might still not be convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that the CIA did, in fact, produce an altered, fraudulent copy of the Zapruder film on the weekend of the assassination and, therefore, is criminally culpable in the assassination itself.
Stopping the car
There were 59 witnesses who stated that the limousine in which Kennedy was traveling made a complete stop or a near-stop after the first shots rang out in Dealey Plaza. That’s 59! Not 5. Not 10. Not 20, 30, or 40. Fifty-nine witnesses who stated that the presidential limousine made a complete stop or near-stop.
Yet, the extant Zapruder film — that is, the film that purports to be the original film rather than an altered, fraudulent copy — shows no such stop or near-stop.
I don’t think I need to explain to most people why stopping the presidential limousine after a gun shot rings out is not a good thing. But just in case someone doesn’t understand why that is, please bear with me.
When a shot rings out, it would best for the driver of the vehicle in which the president is traveling to step on the accelerator, not on the brakes. That would enable him to get out of the area fast so that it would be more difficult to hit the president with additional shots. Stopping the vehicle after the first shot enables the shooter(s) to more easily hit the president with additional shots. That’s because it’s easier to hit a stationary target than a moving target.
In fact, it is a virtual certainty that the first shot that hit Kennedy in the neck was not a fatal shot. He could have survived it. Thus, if the driver of the limousine, Secret Service agent William Greer, had stepped on the accelerator after the first shot rang out, instead of stepping on the brakes, Kennedy might well have survived the ambush.
Bump on a log
The extant Zapruder film shows that after the first shots rang out, the Secret Service agent sitting in the passenger seat next to Greer, Roy Kellerman, sat there like a bump on a log after the first shots rang out. That passivity was highly unusual given that it was his responsibility as a Secret Service agent to immediately jump over the seat and cover the president with his own body in order to protect him from further shots.
That’s what Secret Service agent Clint Hill, who was riding in the follow-up car, was trying to do when he ran up to the back of the presidential limousine, pushed Mrs. Kennedy back into the vehicle, and covered the president’s body with his own body. Hill’s actions were too late because by that time the fatal gun shot(s) had already hit Kennedy in the head….
