Citing Brad Meltzer, New York Times bestselling author and host of the History Channel series “Decoded,” Yahoo News asserts, “Plenty of shooters recreated Oswald’s shot.”
Is this true? I know what Jesse Ventura would say but I’m not expert in this area. I hope readers will contribute their knowledge.
This is what Meltzer says:
“One of the more pervasive myths surrounding the JFK assassination was the idea that no other shooter could replicate Oswald’s feat of shooting three times in 6.75 seconds. So another shooter must have been involved, right? Not necessarily. The Warren Commission reported that one marksman was able to pull off the feat in 4.6 seconds, and a later CBS investigation showed that 11 marksmen averaged 5.6 seconds. Also, Oswald’s shot was, for a trained shooter, relatively easy. Oswald and other military marksmen are trained to shoot anywhere from 200 to 500 yards. Kennedy was 88 yards from Oswald at his farthest point, and 59 yards away at the time of the last shot.”
