People have been arguing ever since it was released to the public in 1975 exactly what the Zapruder film shows.  We're not going to settle it here.

Yes, Indy.  One thing's for sure, we're not going to argue about it here.

A big piece of the United State's spirit, togetherness, and unified drive died with that great man that day, and we've never really quite recovered from it. Such a monumental loss.
Thanks for understanding.

Quote
Feynman found that JFK’s head moved forwards at the moment of impact.

The laws of physics then tell us that the shot must have come from behind!

The backwards movement of the President’s head after Frame 313 then became the mystery. Were there two shots? Could there be some other physics explanation for this strange phenomenon? Did the red spray of blood force his head backwards, like a jet engine? Could his muscles have gone into spasm because of the brain damage?


Quote
But Lifton made a discovery that, for more than two decades, was so incredible that it was not given much credence: the head wound shown on the Zapruder film does not at all match the wound described by eyewitnesses and the doctors that treated JFK in Dallas!



The Zapruder film, and whomever had control of it for all of those years before it was released to the public, raised more questions than it did answers.

First Lincoln now this guy. Is JFK the one who pulled the sword from the stone and became King?

Poor Lester.  Most Americans look up at least some of our Presidents; I have a feeling you wish the office had never even been created. Bluesad

The pamphlets in Dallas were created by the local chapter of the John Birch Society, I believe - a fanatical anti-Communist bunch that flourished in the 1960's.

Thanks, Indy: you've cleared up a lengthy mystery for me. Cheers

Now I know why Don Siegel was referring to the JFK assassination and the society you mentioned in his autobiography while he was shooting The Killers: the studios were closed and one of his crew (a member of the JBS) wanted to work anyway.  Smile

I took the time out from my lesson plans today and talked to each class about JFK and what his death meant to the nation, and especially to those of us in the Dallas Fort Worth area . . . I talked about who Kennedy was, and why so many loved him - and why so many hated him as well.  We listened to a portion of his First Inaugural Address.  Then we took the time to review a little bit of the bizarre life of Lee Harvey Oswald as well.  It was a teachable moment, overall.


Something I've always wanted to know and you're the best person to ask: what on earth is this all about?



How can someone accuse the President of treason?


Wow, Trevor, you don't understand American politics! Every President's political enemies accuse him of treason and want him to be impeached.





In America, we think when a politician pursues policies we personally disagree with, it is treason. Isn't that the way it works in other countries?

One of the problems in looking into this event is that there were so many people who hated Kennedy that it gets to be like MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS - too many suspects!

And too many frightened seven year old kids in the audience: me in 1974, my first movie.  TeddyR

We take our freedom to criticize our public officials very seriously, and even if it gets hateful and ridiculous at times, it is better than the alternative.

Also, even though partisans constantly try to have the sitting President impeached, it's almost impossible to successfully do---we've had more Presidents assassinated than impeached.

"The basic plot is that Donna Speir and Hope Marie Carlton, the two undercover DEA agent Playboy Playmates from the last movie, are still running around in jungle shorts, cowboy boots and spaghetti strap T-shirts, firing their machine guns at drug smugglers, Filipino communist guerrillas, and corrupt federal agents while their two friends, Lisa London and Miss May 1984 Patty Duffek, lounge around the pool a lot and talk on speaker phones that look like fax machines."-Joe Bob on SAVAGE BEACH
