7. Incoherent nonsense.

I just love the way that believers in conspiracy say "the House Select Committee on Assassinations concluded there was a probable conspiracy"...without bothering to mention that the HSCA also confirmed the major findings of the Warren Commission: that all the shots that struck Kennedy and Connally were fired by Lee Harvey Oswald, from the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository. Their only evidence for conspiracy? An audio recording thought to've been from a police motorcycle in the motorcade, thought to reveal "impulses" that indicated a fourth shot. Further analysis of that recording shows that the motorcycle wasn't in the motorcade and that the "impulses" come too late to be shots (because there's crosstalk from another channel of the Dallas chief of police saying "hold everything secure", which happened after the fatal shots were fired). So one of the major points that this whole thing rests on? It isn't even true.

Neither is the assertion that George de Mohrehschildt got Oswald his job at the TSBD; de Mohrenschildt left Dallas in June, and went to Haiti. He had no further contact with Oswald after this date. Oswald got the job at the TSBD in October. This is a matter of record. There are pay slips and other documents. De Mohrenschildt may have helped Oswald get an earlier job with Jaggars-Chiles-Stovall...in October of 1962; Oswald was fired from that job in April of 1963 (again this is all a matter of record, there are documents).

There are so many flat-out untruths and falsehoods here that it's not worth bothering to list them all.
