The bizarre story behind Lee Harvey Oswald, the man accused of assassinating U.S. President John F. Kennedy in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963, and what might have happened had he been brought to trial.
Frances Lee McCain
As a student of the JFK assassination, I have felt, and still do, that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. There was a time when I had some trouble with the head-snap to the rear, possibly indicating shots NOT fired from the Texas School Book Depository, but that was cleared up with this trial.
As for the "Magic Bullet," I personally fired a 30 cal Carbine bullet into some pine boards at point-blank range. It was a full metal jacketed (FMJ), round nose bullet traveling about the same speed, about 2,000 fps, as the 6.5 MM Carcano FMJ round nose bullet fired by Lee Harvey Oswald's rifle. This Carbine bullet penetrated about 13" of soft pine and came out in undistorted condition, somewhat better than the "Magic Bullet," which was slightly flattened at its base.
Back in 1995, I had the opportunity to attend one of Vincent Bugliosi's lectures in which one of the topics he discussed was the JFK assassination and, while attaining his autograph, spent a couple of minutes giving my personal views why I felt that Oswald acted alone.
I recorded this 1986 trial on several VHS tapes, but one of the tapes broke right at the very beginning which left no leader. Is it possible to fix this tape? Also, is there anywhere these 1986 trial tapes/DVDs can be purchased? I would like to have the complete ~18 hours of the trial as opposed to the 5 hours presented by Showtime or the 4 hours shown by Geraldo Rivera, but will settle for the 5 hour Showtime version
