Big news! Oswald may not have acted alone!

WASHINGTON (Reuters, May 18) — Bullet analysis used to justify the lone assassin theory behind President John F. Kennedy’s assassination is based on flawed evidence, according to a team of researchers including a former top FBI scientist.

Writing in the Annals of Applied Statistics, the researchers urged a reexamination of bullet fragments from the 1963 shooting in Dallas to confirm the number of bullets that struck Kennedy.

Official investigations during the 1960s concluded that Kennedy was hit by two bullets fired by Lee Harvey Oswald.

But the researchers, including former FBI lab metallurgist William Tobin, said new chemical and statistical analyses of bullets from the same batch used by Oswald suggest that more than two bullets could have struck the president.

“Evidence used to rule out a second assassin is fundamentally flawed,” the researchers said in their article.

And this is news to whom? The 70 to 80 percent of people, myself included, who have been convinced for four decades that there was a conspiracy behind the killing of JFK? Sheesh.
