JFK FACT PATTERN: 29 TRUE STORIES
2 thoughts on “The JFK Facts Pattern: 29 True Stories”
Yes, LOH was downwind (the wind was travelling SW to NE), which is very important, as to the origin for that burnt gunpowder smell. You can see the direction that ladies’ skirts blew in the wind.
Not only did people hear shots from the Grassy Knoll area, but perhaps more importantly many people in Dealey Plaza smelled gunsmoke in the immediate aftermath of the shooting of JFK.
But perhaps Dallas Police Department Patrolman Joe M. Smith is the most interesting and best witness, “best” as he can be assumed to be very familiar with vehicular exhaust and gunsmoke.
In a Dec. 9 1963 interview with the FBI, Smith, a Korean war vet and eight-year Dallas cop, said he smelled gunsmoke in the Union Terminal railroad yard parking lot next to the Grassy Knoll, after the assassination.
And Smith is most “interesting” for the hysterical woman he met en route to an encounter with what was likely a Secret Service impostor.
After gunshots rang out in Dealey Plaza, Smith told the Warren Commission that, [T]his woman came up to me and she was just in hysterics. She told me, “They are shooting the President from the bushes.” So I immediately proceeded up here.
By “here” Patrolman Smith meant the bushes around the concrete concave-shaped pergola structure, also sometimes called a monumental colonnade, between the TSBD and the Grassy Knoll.
Smith’s testimony to Warren Commission has nearly become canon in the assassination community, recounted many times, and always intriguing.
As Smith further explained, “I was checking all the bushes and I checked all the cars in the [railroad] parking lot.”
Smith then elaborates, “There was some deputy sheriff with me [probably Dallas Deputy Seymour Weitzman], and I believe one Secret Service man when I got there.
Smith added, I got to make this statement, too. I felt awfully silly, but after the shot and this woman, I pulled my pistol from my holster, and I thought, this is silly, I don’t know who I am looking for, and I put it back. Just as I did, he showed me that he was a Secret Service agent.”
The sound of gunshots could echo. Smoke does not echo. And LOH was downwind at the time. And the Secret Service says all their agents were in the motorcade. Dallas Deputy Seymour Weitzman also recounted the “Secret Service” man in the railroad yard.
This is just obvious…..
