The Lost Bullet: Max Holland Gets Lost In Space
Review by Jim DiEugenio
Max Holland first surfaced in the JFK case when John McAdams did, after the
release of Oliver Stone’s film JFK. His first writings appeared in
academic historical journals and he took aim at writers on the Kennedy case
like Peter Dale Scott. For some strange and unfathomable reason, The Nation then
hired him and he wrote about the Kennedy case there for a number of years.
He was housed at this time at the Miller Research Center at the University
of Virginia. This is supposed to be a sort of scholarly base where academics
can do research through grants in aid. One of the directors there was Philip
Zelikow; the executive consul of the much criticized 9-11 Commission. After
writing for The Nation, he then set up his own web site called Washington
Decoded. (For a very good overview of the man’s career concerning this
case, click here)
But some of his pieces have been turned down by more mainstream organs.
So he goes where they will not be refused: the
CIA’s own web site.
Robert Stone is a long time documentary filmmaker who has made many films
since his first, which was called Radio Bikini in 1988. From 1988
to 2010 he worked for PBS and The American Experience program. While
there, in late 2007, he produced and directed a film about the JFK case
Ghost. Although the film was skillfully done, the skill covered up
a rather blatant propaganda piece that ignored much of the new evidence
and relied on discredited talking heads to pin the Kennedy assassination
on Lee Harvey Oswald. (See my review here)
Well, on November 20, 2011, for the 48th anniversary of JFK’s murder, these
two teamed up to create another propaganda piece. Presented on the National
Geographic cable outlet, it was called The Lost Bullet. The concept
for this program goes way back to 2007. At that time Holland and Johan
Rush wrote an article for the web site of the History Channel and postulated
that the first shot fired in the Kennedy assassination actually came much
earlier than anyone had previously supposed. In fact, it occurred even
before Abraham Zapruder started filming! If you can believe it, the authors
theorized that the first shot came just after the presidential limousine turned
from Houston Street onto Elm.
How ‘out there’ was this idea? Way out there. The Warren Commission placed
the firing sequence at around Zapruder frame 210 on to about frame 313.
The House Select Committee placed the first shot at about Zapruder frame
189. Holland and Rush placed the first shot before Zapruder’s camera rolled
so it’s hard to apply a Zapruder frame to it. It may go back to a (theoretical)
A few months after the first installment of this bizarre theory appeared,
it was then repeated in an op-ed
piece for the New
York Times. How
bad was the piece? It was so bad that it was criticized by the likes of
Gary Mack and Dale Myers. And in no uncertain terms. They made it clear
they thought it was poppycock: both unfounded and sloppily researched.
The Holland article went through still
another transformation in 2008.
This time Holland received help from Seattle attorney and JFK assassination
student Kenneth R. Scearce. It was again harshly criticized from the same
None of this seemed to matter to Holland. Or to his producer Mr. Stone.
Why? Because they were on a mission. What was that mission? Well, it is
pretty transparent. See, the more you push back the time for the first
shot, the more time you give the (lone) assassin to fire the entire shooting
sequence. This has been a consistent objective of the Warren Commission
advocates from the start. Why? Because to them, it gives their fall guy
Oswald the necessary time to fire the proverbial three shots from sixth
floor window with a manual bolt action rifle. Holland’s thesis, as we shall
see, is so weak that it’s this point that is the actual purpose of the show.
(The other problem is the rapidity of the final two shots: according to
ear witnesses, almost back to back, which is difficult to imagine with that
Mannlicher-Carcano bolt-action rifle. Talking head Holland mentions this
but does not deal with it.)
Because this is a Robert Stone production
it begins with people crowding around in Dealey Plaza and shots of Robert
Groden selling his literature there. As shown in his previous film, Oswald’s
Ghost, Stone likes
these kinds of shots. It gives him an opportunity to do four things:
Show that this is an ongoing mystery that confuses the public
this confusion on the Warren Commission critics
3.) Show at least one critic
selling his products in Dealey Plaza
4.) Ending with his recurrent
theme that the real reason for the confusion is that people just cannot
accept a socially maladjusted loser like Oswald killed an exalted leader
like John Kennedy.
(This last refrain originated with CIA asset Priscilla
Johnson at the 15th anniversary. Stone actually featured this Agency shill
in his previous film, without telling the viewer who she was.)
The narration then continues with a huge whopper. The voice says something
like Max Holland will now lead a team of researchers in re-opening the
Kennedy case to see if Oswald could really have gotten off three shots
the Warren Commission said he did. We are supposed to believe that somehow
Robert Stone does not know who Max Holland really is. That he does not
know that Holland has been a shameless cheerleader for the official story
since at least 1994. That he has spared no time or energy in smearing the
critics. Stone doesn’t know that this particular piece of flotsam he is about
to demonstrate has been around (and gotten roasted) since 2007?
Sorry Robert. You do know. And you are trying to sell the public that you
are taking an objective approach, when you are not. Stone’s advocacy will
be further demonstrated when he trots out his ballistics expert. If you
can believe it, it is Larry Sturdivan. A guy who actually worked for the
Warren Commission. And whom Robert Blakey actually used for the House Select
Committee on Assassinations (HSCA), to prop up the ludicrous single bullet
theory. With this deception, the show is not off to a good start. And it gets
The narrator now intones that this show will now tell the truth about what
happened to each bullet’s trajectory that day in November 1963. But guess
what? It’s the Warren Commission’s scenario: three shots, from that familiar
sixth floor window; Kennedy hit twice and Connally once. If you can believe
it, the narrator says something like there is a general agreement on this
formula. There is none on this either with the general public or with specialists
in the case. Especially when a detailed examination of the condition of
the Magic Bullet i.e. CE 399, its provenance, and it flight path is provided.
As we shall see, this does not happen here. Stone, Holland and Sturdivan
are good con artists. They knew better than to go into this matter.
The program now proceeds and Holland says he will work backwards with his
three Warren Commission bullets. Therefore, he begins with Zapruder frame
313, the fatal headshot to Kennedy. And with this segment, the program
now descends into the purest advocacy. To use one example: Stone and Holland
do not even mention the fact that the entry point for this bullet was switched
from where the Warren Commission originally placed it. They had it at the
base of the skull, right above the neck. Both the Ramsey Clark panel and
the HSCA moved this entry point upward by nearly four inches! Which means
it went from the bottom of the skull to the top, at the cowlick area. Why
do they ignore this problem? Because by ignoring it they do not have to
explain that if the bullet came in at the base of the skull, Z frame 313
shows that the bullet could not exit at the Warren Commission’s point at
the right temple, above and to the right of the ear. This problem was
pointedly illustrated way back in 1967 by Josiah Thompson in his book Six
Seconds in Dallas. (See
page 111) Thompson also demonstrated that the Warren Commission lied about
this issue in their illustrations to cover up this fact. By glossing it
over, Holland and Stone continue that cover up.
There is another issue here that the Dynamic Duo conceal. That is the mystery
of the 6.5 mm fragment. The Clark Panel saw something on the x-rays that
apparently the original autopsy team missed. Namely the existence of a
bullet fragment near the rear of the skull. This fragment was also agreed
to by the HSCA. The problem is that if that is what it is, it creates another
huge problem for the official story. Because the two fragments recovered
of this head shot bullet constituted the front and tail of the bullet.
Therefore, this fragment must come from the middle of the bullet. So we
are to believe that the bullet broke into thirds upon immediate entrance
and the rear of the bullet somehow elevated itself over the center of
the bullet—which was left behind—and proceeded forward and out with the front
of the bullet. The show’s own expert, Sturdivan, has said this is not
possible. In the words of Henry Lee, “Something is wrong here.” And neither
Stone nor Holland wants to deal with it. Which shows the reader how honest
To the program’s credit, during this segment they show high definition
scans of the Zapruder film to demonstrate that the driver, Secret Service
agent Bill Greer, did turn around, but he did not shoot Kennedy. This was
always a nutty theory that no serous critic of the official story advocated.
But I am glad they addressed it here.
But then the mendaciousness picks up again. They admit that Time-Life held
the Zapruder film in their vaults for years without making it public. Which
is true. But they then say the reason was to keep the graphic images of
the headshot away from the public. Most informed people would disagree.
They would say that Time-Life, with all of its ties to the intelligence
community, kept this from the public because this part of the film—with
its unforgettable image of Kennedy being hurtled backwards with incredible
force and speed against the car seat—betrays a shot from the front. And
Oswald was behind Kennedy.
Holland does address this issue. He screen captures a frame from the Zapruder
film that shows the blood mist exiting from Kennedy’s skull. It appears
to be exiting slightly forward. Because of this, we are to forget about
Kennedy being hit so hard from the front that his whole body rockets backward.
What Holland does not say is this: When a projectile hits the skull, it
creates a medical phenomenon called cavitation. This is, roughly speaking,
a pressure center in the brain. This pressure center then finds a means
of escape. And often, this comes from a weak point in the skull. Which
happens to be near the front. In other words, the exit point has nothing
to do with the directionality of the shot.
I could hardly believe what Holland and Stone did next. Using their high
definition scans from other films, not the Zapruder film, they panned across
the grassy knoll. They then announced that they could not find a man with
a rifle there. So they concluded the shot could not have come from the
front. Uh, Bob, Max. You could just have shown a close up of the Moorman
photograph and given the audience a hint of the Badge Man image. And there
are others images in the canon that reveal something funny happening behind
the picket fence—not on the knoll. And you then could have related that
to the testimony of people like Lee Bowers and Sam Holland to close that
argument. Stone and Holland did not. Which reveals this is a propaganda
The show now introduces Mr. Sturdivan formally. It then proceeds to a discussion
of some of the evidence against Oswald. It deals with it in about the same
way it deals with the headshot. Meaning it does not at all go into the
myriad problems the critics have demonstrated with it. For instance, the
show mentions something called a “handprint” on the rifle. I think this
word invention is to get around the fact that it was not a fingerprint
but a palmprint. And of course, the show does not discuss the fact that
the FBI expert, Sebastian LaTona, saw no such print when the rifle went
to FBI headquarters that night. Neither does the show mention that FBI
agent Vince Drain was the man who picked up the rifle from the Dallas Police
to ship it to the FBI. No policeman told him at that time there was such
a print on the rifle. The palmprint only appeared after the rifle was returned
to the Dallas Police and after the FBI found no Oswald prints at FBI headquarters.
(Henry Hurt, Reasonable Doubt,
This deceptive technique is fitting for what is about to happen
next. Which, even for Stone and Holland, is a bit wild. Using none other
than Larry Sturdivan—the inveterate Warren Commission sycophant—they now
try to demonstrate that the Single Bullet Theory actually occurred. Before
getting to that though, let me mention what Sturdivan had just done for
the producers previously. When assaying the headshot, Sturdivan took a page
from Gary Mack and his hideous Inside
the Target Car. He lined up his marksman from the middle of
the picket fence. Not the end. Again, as with Mack, this is deceptive.
Anyone who goes to Dealey Plaza will see that the shot from the end of
the picket fence is where most people think the fatal shot came from. But
Mack wanted to use the other location because then he could lie to the
American public and say that a shot from that location would have hit Jackie
Kennedy. Which it would not have. And Mack knew that before he said it.
So it was a premeditated lie. (See
for yourself here)
Well, Sturdivan repeated that same lie here. He only said it in passing,
and he framed it with a conditional. But he did say it. So even after this
lie has been exposed for what it is, Stone and Holland still feel fit to
repeat it. This tells you all you need to know about this program. If only
it had stopped there. But it does not.
Sturdivan now trots out to Dealey Plaza, lines up the models in the car,
fires a laser at them and presto! He now says that the Single Bullet Theory
actually happened. Again, I wish I was kidding but I’m not. Needless to
say: Garbage In, Garbage Out. First, Sturdivan lined up the models as Vince
Bugliosi did in his book Reclaiming History. Using false dimensions
for the car, he has Kennedy way outside of Connally. As Robert Groden will
show with photographs in his upcoming book, this was not the case. Secondly,
and shockingly, there was no discussion of the flight path through either
man. All the program showed was two green dots on the rear of the bodies.
And it appeared that Sturdivan showed the rear wound of JFK to be at the
HSCA location, down the back. The obvious question here is: Then why did
Jerry Ford move that location upwards from the back for the Warren Commission?
Holland does not ask this question. Probably because he would then have
to admit that this location makes it hard to believe that the bullet would
then exit through the neck. There is then no discussion of why the cervical
vertebrae in Kennedy were not cracked. Which they would have to be if the
bullet exited at the neck. Neither does the show address the curious trajectory
through Connally. That is, through the chest, rightward to hit his wrist
and then left to hit his thigh.
And obviously, the program does not even mention two very salient facts.
First, the overwhelming evidence that the Magic Bullet, CE 399, was switched.
(See here for that
evidence) And second, the compelling evidence that Connally
was hit by a separate bullet. Further, that the FBI knew both of these
facts and was complicit in the cover up. By themselves, these two brief
articles shatter the cheap dog and pony show that Sturdivan is selling
Before leaving this (gaseous) segment of this phony program, let me add
one more ersatz announcement in it. Like Inside the Target Car, Stone
and Holland hired a military marksman. They actually say that Oswald had
the same training in rifle fire that their marksman had. This is so ridiculous
as to be ludicrous. Oswald had no special training at all in marksmanship.
His training was the same as that of the scores of Marines he took rifle
practice with. And in fact, when Henry Hurt interviewed some of Oswald’s
military cohorts, they were aghast at the Warren Commission contention
that Oswald could have pulled off what happened in Dealey Plaza by himself.
He was that poor on the rifle range. (See Hurt, pgs. 99-100) Again, this
is a fact that this agenda driven show tries to cover up.
Before proceeding to the program’s fraudulent finale, let us remind ourselves
of two main points. The show has not done what it said it would do, that
is trace the bullets in the Kennedy case. It has not done this in any real
way, or even come close. Further, it has not searched for evidence of any
other bullets fired that day, besides the Warren Commission exhibits. Second,
it has not in any real sense done a new investigation, or reopened the
case. I mean, how could it with Larry Sturdivan there, the man who was involved
in the original Warren Commission inquiry? (How Robert Stone missed inviting
Arlen Specter escapes me.)
But now the show is about to proceed to its closing summation. The program
says there has been generally two schools of thought abut the firing sequence.
The Warren Commission allowed six seconds for the shots to be spaced. This
began with the president disappearing behind the freeway sign, and then ended
with Z frame 313. The HSCA said the shots were begun slightly earlier than
that. At about frame 189, which would allow for about seven seconds. Yet this
longer time clearly allowed for a conspiracy since the first shot had to be
fired through the branches of an oak tree. And almost no one would be able
to believe that any marksman could have hit the target with that obstruction
there. (Let us not ever forget, the greatest sniper of the Vietnam era, Carlos
Hathcock, said that he repeatedly tried to do what the Commission says Oswald
did. He failed every time.)
Obviously, Holland is disturbed by these results, which eliminate Oswald
as the lone gunman. So what does he do? He says that the first shot happened
even before Zapruder started filming! The problem with this is that if
one watches the opening frames of Zapruder’s film as the car has entered
Elm Street, there is nothing to indicate anyone has fired a shot. And when
Vince Bugliosi tried to move the first shot up a bit more than the HSCA did,
Pat Speer showed that he embroidered some witness testimony with the liberal
use of ellipsis to accomplish that goal. (See
Holland first takes out a high definition scan to show what he says is
someone or something in the Hughes film in the sixth floor window. Being
as objective as I could be, I could not determine if it was a person or
boxes. It was that obscure. And for the show to trumpet this as a “new
discovery” is more pretentious gas. At the end of Josiah Thompson’s 1967
Seconds in Dallas, he uses the exact same film and frames to make the
argument that there are two men in that window. (See pgs. 244-46)
Except Thompson brings in supplementary evidence that supports his idea—and
it's credible. To show you just how strained this film is, Holland and
Stone are so biased that they go beyond saying that this rather indeterminate
frame represents a single person. Holland
actually said it was Oswald! For pure arrogant zealotry this might
match Dale Myers going on national TV in 2003 and lying his eyes out by
saying his phony computer simulation had just proven something called the
"Single Bullet Fact".
Holland then says that the positioning of the shells at the scene proves
there was an early shot and then two close together. On its face, this
is silly. One might ask Stone and Holland: Did you do any experiments to
prove this? But really it’s worse than that. Tom Alyea was a local TV photographer
who entered the Texas School Book Depository before the building was sealed
off. He was one of the very first to see the three shells lying on the
sixth floor. (Michael Benson, Who’s Who in the JFK Assassination,
p. 12) He had trouble filming the shells because of the boxes. Captain
Will Fritz then picked them up for him to better shoot a picture. Fritz
then threw the shells back on the floor! Which means, of course, that
the photos of the shells we have now in the Commission volumes are not
of the original crime scene. But Alyea went even further. He told certain
researchers than when he first saw the shells they were not scattered as
they appear in the volumes today. He stated you could span the three shells
with your hand. (Interview with Larry Hancock, 11/19/11)
I now make a further challenge to Stone and Holland: please fire a Mannlicher
Carcano rifle and eject three shells from it. Do it one hundred times. Call
me when you get three shells ejected perfectly within a hand span. I will
tell the reader right now: I will never get that phone call.
Holland also uses the testimony of the three depository workers below the
sixth floor who later said that they heard a rifle bolt working and shells
falling to the floor above them. What he does not say is that this was
not their original testimony in their first Secret Service report. Patricia
Lambert long ago wrote about this in a long two-part article. (See
Holland also uses witnesses Tina Towner and Amos Euins for this earlier
shot. But if one clicks through to the article by Dale Myers I linked to at
the start, one can see that he is not faithful to what they originally said.
Further, he has selectively used Euins’ testimony in two ways. First, he has
cut out the parts that seem to eliminate Oswald as the assassin e.g. seeing
a bald spot on the back of his head. (Rodger Remington, Biting the Elephant,
pgs. 116-18) Second, he does not detail all the problems with Euins as a witness.
For instance Euins told the Secret Service he was not sure if the assassin
was black or white. When asked definitively, he told the Secret Service he
was black. He then told the police he was white. (ibid, p. 126) When he was
asked if he could recognize the man if he saw him again, he said he could
not. (Ibid, p. 127) He also said he heard four shots. (Ibid p. 115)
As the reader can see, Holland has shamelessly cherry picked the testimony
of a 15-year-old boy.
Holland and Stone now proceed to the climax of their tedious opus. Holland
asks: If the shot came that early, with the car that much closer to the
window, how did the shot miss? This rhetorical question leaves out two key
points. First, Holland and Stone have not come close to proving the shot
came that early. Second, they ignore an obvious adjunct question. Namely,
if the assassin was going to fire that early on Elm, why did he not fire
when the car was right below him on Houston? With a telescopic site, this
is close to a can’t miss shot.
Well, this is what Holland and Stone give us as their answer to this question.
They say that this shot missed because it hit a traffic light on a metal
pole first. Now one has to ask another obvious question: If that were the
case, when the assassin went to line up the shot, would he not see the pole
and light in his cross hairs?
But further, as Holland states, this has to be the shot that then went
forward to hit near James Tague standing on a concrete island beneath the
overpass near Commerce Street (and a piece of the curb cut his face). Now
this Tague/curb hit had always been very difficult to explain for those
maintaining the official fiction of three shots. In fact, the FBI simply
decided to cut it out of their report. This eliminated the Magic Bullet
fantasy from their version. And this is one reason the Warren Commission
did not place that report in the volumes. But yet, the people in Dallas would
not let it go away. And finally, the local U. S. attorney wrote a letter
to the Warren Commission about it. The Commission then had to include the
Tague/curb hit in their report. And this is one of the main reasons that the
Single Bullet Theory—or as Robert Groden calls it, the Single Bullshit
Theory—exists today. If one bullet hit the curb near Tague and one killed
JFK, there is only one bullet left to do the rest of the damage to Connally
For Holland and Stone to include the Tague hit on the trajectory of this
traffic light hit shows just how much they have migrated into outer space.
Consider this: they now have a bullet smashing into a traffic light right
out of the gate. But then this bullet has the torque left to fly something
like 400 feet further—one and a third football fields—and then smash into
a curb sending out shards of concrete, cutting
open Tague’s cheek.
Again, did Holland and Stone do any experiments on this? For the traffic
light is still there. I would have liked to have seen them. I think it
would have resembled a Buster Keaton movie.
But it’s even worse than that. As Harold Weisberg found out during a protracted
battle with the FBI, the Bureau did some metal testing of the curbstone
after they were forced to acknowledge the Tague hit. They found something
very odd. There were no copper traces in the concrete sample. (Hurt, p. 136)
If one looks at the ammunition allegedly used in the shooting, this would
seem impossible. The bullets are literally coated in copper metal. Therefore,
as Henry Hurt concludes, this in itself proves, at a minimum, that Oswald
did not act alone. (ibid, p. 138) You probably know by now what Stone and
Holland do with this key information. That’s right. They
don’t mention it. I wonder why.
If you can believe it, it is even worse than that. Because it turns out
the producers did do experiments with the traffic light. But only to see
if a shot hitting it would leave a hole or not. Holland first reported
that there was a hole in the traffic light. But it was later revealed that
this was a separation in the metal that was part of the design. And in
fact, on the show, Holland admits there is no hole or even a visible dent
in the light today. So how does he conclude what he does, that the bullet
ricocheted off the light? He says that there is a “white spot” on the light.
How this proves a bullet hit it is not discussed in any way. But as Pat Speer
notes, the company that did the experiments reported for the program concluded
that if a shot hit the light there would have been very visible damage to
it; and from street level. So much so that it would have been reported on
the day of the assassination. (Follow this
link to post 11)
In other words, Stone and Holland likely knew that the reason d’être for
their show was wrong--before they went on the air. Does it get much worse
This farce of a program proves that, as with the three old main networks,
the cable TV channels are almost pathologically incapable of telling anything
close to the truth about Kennedy’s assassination. All the rules of journalism
are now thrown out the window. And farceurs like Gary Mack, Robert Stone,
and Max Holland are allowed to take center stage carte blanche; with no
one exercising any kind of fact checking or standards review. As discussed
here, four of the last five cable programs on this case have been abysmal
in every way. The only exception was National Geographic’s own The
Lost JFK Tapes.
But now it appears
that that channel has joined up with Discovery Channel to produce a show
that actually ranks with the works of Gary Mack/Larry Dunkel. Which I actually
thought was not possible. But here it is.
All that Stone and Holland proved is that documentary films can lie as
much as fiction films do. In fact, they can lie even more.
