Josiah Thompson on how to think about November 22

Josiah Thompson, known to friends as Tink, is the JFK researcher emeritus. As a philosophy graduate student in 1966, he was the first person (outside the CIA) to make a serious forensic analysis of Abraham Zapruder’s film of the assassination of President Kennedy.

A question about the grassy knoll

MIke writes: People keep putting stock into people who said the shot came from the knoll. Yeah I know those days were chaotic they might’ve thought it came from the mall but I look at it in the context of 911. There were there were reports that there was a sniper at the Lincoln Memorial, bomb exploded outside the state department all witness accounts turned out to be totally ridiculous. I think the silence is probably shot came from behind. What’s your response?
