365. Could be because as early as 1980 the FBI and other
Edited on Mon Nov-24-08 05:13 PM by stopbush
experts rejected the specious evidence of the 4th shot as presented by scientists to the HSCA?

The correctness of that rejection has subsequently been proven to have been accurate through the syncing of video tapes shot from various vantage points that show that Officer McClain's motorcycle was at least 80 yards from the position it would have had to have been in to record a 4th shot on the dictabelt.

As the HSCA based their claims of conspiracy on their erroneous and last-minute embrace of the theoretical dictabelt non-evidence, that sorta blows away THEIR reason for saying Oswald wasn't the lone shooter.

G. Robert Blakey - Chief Counsel and Staff Director to the 1977 House Select Committee on Assassinations - embraced the CT of a second gunman based upon this faulty theory and now-refuted "evidence." On the History Channel Special "Beyond Conspiracy," he stated that were it proved that McClain was not in the target zone at the intersection of Elm & Houston to record the 4th shot on the dictabelt, that the theory would fall apart. It has now fallen apart. Has he refuted the theory? Not on that special, and not anywhere else from what I can see.

In a similar vein, the 3 scientists who first presented the dictabelt "evidence" (claiming to better than 95% that there was a second gunman involved) refused to be interviewed for THC-BC special. Why? Any CTers wish to offer an opinion on that one?

Fantasies die hard, don't they?
