This video alone tells me it was a setup with the JFK deal. Too my bad apples in the bunch, and the sad part is some of them apples are still around today.

...I admit, with how political this can't end well.

the most out-there, but still somewhat plausible conspiracy theory I've heard for JFK, was that the VP's wife had him whacked. Sounds crazy right? But.... She DID have strong ties to the mafia.

I can't get the video to load, but I don't think it's the same show anyway. Some show a few years back recreated the shot, down to some pretty gruesome detail, using human bones in ballistic gel set up in the same configuration as the people in the car, lined up down to the inch with a matching window. After a couple attempts, the shooter recreated the shot right down to the weird slot-shaped wound in the governor's thigh.

Where would Oswald get such a special round?
A good chunk of your questions are irrelevant or can be answered with some googling, but this one just made me go "Huh?." 6.5mm fmj isn't typical, but it's not exactly unheard of. It used to be easier to come by than it is now, particularly in that exact style (most guns can't safely fire a bullet that goes full diameter so close to the tip, but it's still out there and you can still buy it.

It's not like Booth had the only Carcarno rifle in the world.

You miss my point by thinking literally... I meant the 6.5 compared to the other round that could not have been fired form his rifle. And which questions are irrelevant? You can't just be in a discussion and say that without giving proof. And google is not proof.

Apparently a lot of the supposed irregularities were a result of a botched autopsy performed by an inexperienced doctor in DC who had never done an autopsy before instead of a skilled coroner. There was no coverup in the autopsy, just shoddy work that made it look suspicious.
if there was a botched take over of the body then it can very well hide the real cause. which means your point is irreverent the same with the one in the previous quote as both cases require an unaltered JFK body and no false documents to prove the point and since he has been buried for half a century you won't get any further. the is why i don't believe that BS story about LHO shooting JFK.

why don't i bring my own proof? how can i bring which is mostly from circumstantial 3rd hand reports and eye witness statements which are known to be unreliable and made up lab reports that perport to show how JFK died this or that way? it's a black hole and until someone can shine a light into it and find the ground this will keep spinning the theory around.

My apologies to everyone reading this thread. I didn't know it was going to turn into an airing of JFK theories. Sorry.

I thought The Comedian was aiming for the VP?
