28. An introduction to the origin of the SBT (single bullet theory)
"There are actually several key points that make or break the WC's
claim of a lone assassin, but perhaps none shows it more clearly and
concisely than the Single Bullet Theory (SBT). The whole need for a
SBT came about because the WC was limited to three shots by the
assassin due to the time contraints offered by the Zapruder film.
Using this film it was concluded that the assassin would have had
roughly 5.6 seconds to fire at the motorcade and the cycling time of
the Mannlicher-Carcano (M-C) was 2.3 seconds by the most experienced
shooters, thus the maximum number of shots that could be fired were

This is what both the FBI and SS reported in their reports, and
continue to report as they even scoff at the SBT as ridiculous.
Initially there were no problems with three shots though as the FBI
and SS said the first shot hit JFK in the back, the second hit JBC in
the back and the third hit JFK in the head. This was neat and concise
and worked for both of these organizations. The fly in the ointment
arose when a man by the name of James Tague came along however and
said he was wounded on the cheek by debris from a bullet hitting the
concrete pavement/curb near him a the Triple Underpass area. He was
standing there watching the motorcade. Hoover initially did what he
did with a lot of evidence in this case -- he IGNORED him!!! He would
not recognize him for many months, but finally this bullet had to be
addressed. Which one could have struck JFK or JBC and still travelled
that far and struck the pavement/curb near Tague? The WC came to the
scary conclusion none could, thus they had a problem. NOW they had to
address 7 wounds in two men with just two bullets!!

Enter the SBT scenario."
