Jennings show only served to provide proof of conspiracy
7 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The time spent on Oswald's childhood and his brother's "expert" opinion was nothing but a waste of time and proved nothing. The animated version of the Zapruder film was unnecessary and open to many inaccuracies, it's not like the cut and paste of computer saved files. It's the Flintstones or some Disney cartoon. Why do it when you have the Zapruder film!! The fellow shooting the gun in the allocated time only proved that the gun could be fired in the time frame, he wasn't aiming at anything!! It's operating the bolt and finding and re-aiming at the target that takes time!! The show does emphasize Zapruder frame 223 where Connaly appears to be hit based on the movement of this lapel. That was convincing however they fail to point out that Kennedy's arm is already showing reaction which would not be possible if it were the same bullet. They also fail to point out that Connaly by frame 232-233 was showing no reaction to the hit and only displays reaction at 236.

The show only served to prove the conspiracy not to disprove anything. A better presentation would be to line up the debatable points and present both sides.
