Another Shooter in the Kennedy Assassination?
Almost forty four years ago, on November 22, 1963, as President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the First Lady, Jacqueline Kennedy, Governor John Connally and his wife, Nellie, rode through Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas, shots rang out, killing President Kennedy and wounding Governor Connally.
In 1964, the Warren Commission released its findings that Lee Harvey Oswald had acted alone, firing his weapon from the sixth floor window of the Texas School Book Depository.
The young acting junior counsel, later to become senator of Pennsylvania, Arlen Specter, constructed the single bullet theory that the Warren Commission concluded was responsible for wounds found on President Kennedy and Governor Connally, a bullet later to be called the “magic bullet”.
A Reuters article states researchers, writing in the Annals of Applied Statistics, urged reexamination of the 1963 shooting, reporting that “....researchers, including former FBI lab metallurgist William Tobin, said new chemical and statistical analyses of bullets from the same batch used by Oswald suggest that more than two bullets could have struck the president.”
The researchers' conclusion is the evidence used to rule out a second assassin was flawed.
