  1. Of course that finding was based exclusively on acoustic evidence that was completely refuted when the conclusion of “98% accuracy” by so-called experts was d estrogen by a drummer who picked up something missed by the experts-” hold everything secure”.

    1. Photon, your presence and arguments are helping people like me see that the Oswald-did-it-alone position is not a strong one. Your arguments are very black and white. You say the findings by the Select Committee were based “exclusively” on acoustic evidence.

      I am no expert so I looked up the wording in the summary by the Select Committee and it reads as follows:

      “The committee believes, on the basis of the evidence available to it, that President John F. Kennedy was probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy. The committee is unable to identify the other gunman or the extent of the conspiracy.”

      I don’t see any statement that the conclusion is based “exclusively” on the acoustic evidence and if it was it stands to reason the sentence would read: “The committee believes, on the basis of the acoustic evidence…”

      In another place in the report it says:

      “Other scientific evidence does not preclude the possibility of two gunmen firing at the President,” which means to anyone with an open mind that there was other evidence which suggested a conspiracy.

      Chief Counsel Robert Blakey said later:

      “We also now know that the Agency set up a process that could only have been designed to frustrate the ability of the committee in 1976-79 to obtain any information that might adversely affect the Agency. Many have told me that the culture of the Agency is one of prevarication and dissimulation and that you cannot trust it or its people. Period. End of story. I am now in that camp.”

      That you could come away from the published report and quotes like these with a narrow and dismissive conclusion underscores your lack of credibility as a researcher and theorist.
