One problem with the Warren Commission’s report surfaced in the October 14 issue of Vanity Fair: First Lady Jackie Kennedy didn’t believe the single bullet theory on which the Commission’s findings depend.
“… the Warren Commission’s findings were expected to show that, contrary to much previous opinion, the first bullet had struck both the president and the governor and that the last of the three shots had gone wild. That certainly was not how Jackie remembered it. She had been there. The mental pictures with which she continued to be inundated were so sharp and detailed.”
John and Nellie Connally, seated next to the president and First Lady, also disputed the Warren Commisson’s account. Yes, eyewitness testimony can be unreliable but it is a fact that none of the three closest witnesses to the gunfire believed the Commission’s description of the gunfire.
