    (1) The alleged murder weapon was an Italian WW2 surplus rifle called the Mannlicher-Carcano. Its bolt caught in three places. An FBI ballistics expert couldn't fire it even once in the seconds when Oswald was alleged to have fire 3 shots. This has been well known since Mark Lane's book Rush to Judgment was published before the end of the 60s.

    (2) From Oswald's vantage point in the Textbooks Depository, he could see the motorcade come toward him before the cars turned left into Dealy Plaza. After the turn, JFK was moving away from Oswald. Why wouldn't Oswald shoot at JFK when he was coming toward him? If he missed, the target would be closer. I admit to getting this second point from Stone's JFK, but it is something to think about.

      Oswald practiced dry shooting this rifles for weeks prior to the shooting. How many time did this expert practice? Are you actually suggesting that there was a second shooter standing right next to Oswald who did the actual killing? Why? What purpose did that serve? Why a patsy and the real shooter, to make us think it was Oswald and let the real shooter get away? Then why did Ruby shoot Oswald, to prevent him from telling us what really happened?

      Silliness upon silliness. Ockam's Razor still applies.
