With this new work in mind, let us update the work of Ray Marcus in
regard to the impossible journey of CE 399 on the day President Kenendy
was shot. Keeping in mind, that as Dr. Cyril Wecht has noted, the Single
Bullet Theory is the “sine que non” of the Warren Commission.
Without it, the Commission’s verdict collapses and you hae a conspiracy.
And without the Commission’s shiny copper coated, virtually pristine
CE 399, there is no Single Bullet Theory.
1. CE 399 begins its magical journey at Parkland Hospital. A bullet
rolls out from under a mat and lodges against the side of the gurney.
(Mark Lane, Rush to Judgment, p. 79) Question: How did it
get under the mat? Remember, the Commission will later say this bullet
was in John Connally’s body last. No one has ever answered this
2. Even Vincent Bugliosi admits that the stretcher it originated from
is under question. (Reclaiming History, End Notes, p. 426) But
Bugliosi understates the problem here. The weight of the evidence says
that the gurney it was found on belonged to neither President Kennedy
nor Governor John Connally. (Sylvia Meagher, Accessories After the
Fact, pgs. 174-176; Josiah Thompson, Six Seconds in Dallas,
pgs. 154-64) It would be a physical impossibility for the bullet to
somehow jump from Ron Fuller's stretcher—where Thompson concludes
it was found on- to someone else's.
3. When hospital attendant Darrell Tomlinson notices it, the bullet
has no blood or tissue on it. (Meagher, p. 173) Yet the Commission will
say that this bullet went through two men and caused seven wounds.
4. But yet, it’s even worse than that. Why? Because the Commission
will eventually say that the last resting place of this bullet was
in the thigh of Governor Connally. How could 1.) The bullet reverse
trajectory and work its way out? 2.) How could it emerge out of a wound
it already made? Most pathologists will tell you that entry wounds
slightly shrink afterwards.
3.) Further, how could it have no blood or tissue on it if it traversed
5. Tomlinson picks up the bullet at about 1:45 PM and takes it to security
officer O. P. Wright. (Thompson, p. 156) Wright is very familiar with
firearms since he was with the sheriff's office previously. (ibid, p.
175) Wright gets a good look at the bullet, he notes it as a lead colored,
pointed nosed, hunting round. (ibid) This is extremely important since
this bullet will change shape and color by the end of its journey..
6. This bullet will be passed through to Secret Service officers Richard
Johnsen and Jim Rowley. (Hunt, “The Mystery of the 7:30 Bullet; http://www.jfklancer.com/hunt/mystery.html)
Yet neither of them will initial the bullet. (Hunt, “Phantom Identification
of the Magic Bullet”; http://jfklancer.com/hunt/phantom.htm)
And later, neither positively identified it. (Aguilar, p. 282)
7. At the White House, Rowley turns a bullet over to FBI agent Elmer
Todd. They sign a receipt. The time of the transfer is 8:50 PM on the
22nd. (Hunt, “The Mystery of the 7:30 Bullet”)
8. Yet as John Hunt shows, agent Robert Frazier at the FBI lab enters
the stretcher bullet’s arrival into his notes at 7:30! (ibid)
As Hunt notes, if Frazier and Todd can both tell time, something is
really wrong here. Frazier has received a bullet that Todd has not
given him yet.
9. But it’s even worse. For in an FBI document it says that Todd's
initials are on the bullet. (CE 2011, at WC Vol. 24, p. 412) Yet as Hunt
has amply demonstrated, they are not there. (Hunt, “Phantom Identification
of the Magic Bullet”) In other words, no one who carried this
bullet in transit for law enforcement purposes--Johnsen, Rowley, Todd--put
their initials on it. When that is what they are trained to do.
10. Later on, J. Edgar Hoover realizes he has a problem. So he writes
up a document saying that agent Bardwell Odum visited Parkland, and Wright
and Tomlinson did identify the bullet in June of 1964. (Aguilar, p. 282)
11. But later, when visited by Gary Aguilar and Tink Thompson, this
is exposed as another in the long line of Hoover generated lies in this
case. For Odum did no such thing, and he says he would have recalled
doing so since he and Wright were friends. (ibid, p. 284)
12. The night of the assassination, the FBI calls Tomlinson about midnight.
They tell him to be quiet about what he found that day. Since what he
found that day was a lead colored, sharp nosed hunting round, they must
not want him to tell anyone about the bullet. (Jim Marrs, Crossfire,
p. 365; David Lifton, Best Evidence, p. 591) A natural question
to ask is: Why? A natural answer is: Because they have realized that
the original bullet will not match the Mannlicher-Carcano rifle now attributed
13. When Wright composes his affidavit for the WC, incredibly, he leaves
out his co-discovery of the bullet and his giving it to the Secret Service.
(Lifton, ibid) Even though Johnsen recorded this and its in the volumes.
(Thompson, p. 155) Since he was a former law enforcement officer, to
leave something like that out, he was probably directed to.
14. When it comes time to write the Warren Report, Wright's name is
not in it. And there is no evidence Arlen Specter interviewed him.
15. In late 1966, we find out why Specter avoided him. Thompson interviews
him and he rejects CE 399 as the bullet he gave Johnsen. Twice. (Thompson,
p.175) Interestingly, in Reclaiming History, Vincent Bugliosi
leaves this powerful incident out of his discussion of the issue. (Bugliosi,
End Notes, pgs. 426-27, 544-45)
To say that the chain of evidence rule has been violated in this case
is a monumental understatement. Former Chief of Homicide in New York,
attorney Bob Tanenbaum once said that it would be embarrassing to present
this material to a jury for the prosecution. For me, the most incriminating
elements is the evidence that the FBI knew that CE 399 was not
the original bullet i.e. the call to Tomlinson, the fake Odum document,
possibly the influence over Wright to leave it out of his affidavit,
Specter avoiding Wright in the Commission inquiry.
So from the beginning, with its reverse trajectory out of the thigh
of Connally, to its incredible tunneling under a mat, to its leaping
out of Ron Fuller's stretcher and magically knowing it has to be on the
governor’s, to its shocking ability to alter its form and color,
and then to actually crack the time barrier and be in Frazier's office
before Todd gives it to him, the Impossible Journey of CE 399 is even
more magical than anyone ever could imagine.
What is truly incredible about the above demonstration is that I have
left all the other arguments about the Magic Bullet out i.e. weight and
trajectory etc. To me, in the face of the above, they are irrelevant.
The CE 399 we know was not found at Parkland. And that ends this argument.
Everything else—the computer simulations, the drawings etc.-is
irrelevant. As Shakespeare said, it is sound and fury signifying nothing.
At the time of the assassination, CE 399 as we know it today, did not
