230. Magic bullet? There was no magic bullet.
Edited on Sun Nov-23-08 12:23 PM by stopbush
The trajectory of the bullet was absolutely straight, through JFK and into Connally. The important FACT is that the governor was seated in a jump seat that was a foot closer to the car's center and lower than the seat that JFK was in. If you put JFK and Connally in their actual positions, there's no where else for the bullet to go but into Connally. The entrance/exit wounds line up perfectly when the victims are put in their actual positions.

Of course, O Stone and the CTs place Connally a foot to the right of JFK from where Connally actually sat. That INCORRECT POSITIONING is the basis of the erroneous "magic bullet" BS.

But let's play devil's advocate and assume that Connally was seated where he wasn't. ie: directly in front of JFK. Suppose we stipulate the bullet that hit JFK didn't also hit Connally. Fine. Let me ask you this - where did the bullet that hit JFK but not Connally end up if not in Connally? Surely, it should have been embedded in the dashboard, or should have blown out the front windshield, or ended up somewhere in the limo IF we are to believe the laws of physics and the trajectory such a bullet would have taken.

It's a point that Bugliosi makes in his book. I've yet to see any of the CT people come up with an answer for this SIMPLE question. Care to try?
