Jackie's testimony to Warren Commission...
Here's what Jacqueline Kennedy had to say, parts of which dealing with the President's wounds were edited by the Warren Commission:

Warren Commission Suppressed Jackie's
Testimony On JFK's Head Wound

Court Reporter's Tape Shows
Additional Description Withheld

Dallas, TX -- August 5, 2001 -- JFK Lancer, an historical research firm reports that the Court Reporter's tape shows Jacqueline Kennedy's testimony before the Warren Commission had additional descriptions which were withheld.

Mrs. Kennedy testified in a short private session held at her home in Washington, D.C., with Chief Justice Earl Warren, Commission General Council J. Lee Rankin, Attorney General Robert Kennedy, and a court reporter in attendance. Testimony of witnesses before the Warren Commission was made public in the fall of 1964. Jacqueline Kennedy's testimony was also released containing her description of her husbands wounds which read :

"And just as I turned and looked at him, I could see a piece of his skull and I remember it was flesh colored. I remember thinking he just looked as if he had a slight headache. And I just remember seeing that. No blood or anything."


" I was trying to hold his hair on. From the front there was nothing --- I suppose there must have been. But from the back you could see, you know, you were trying to hold his hair on, and his skull on."


PS: Why the condescension toward those who aren't as obviously intelligent as you, Nederland? I thought Democrats believed we ALL need information to make our judgments. Those who know help those who don't know, right?

1. Response
If you are asking if I believe the testimony of a woman tramatized by the murder of her husband over what I can see with my own eyes in the Zapruder film I will go with film every time. As any investigater with tell you, physical evidence always trumps eye witnesses.

2. Sure. People make mistakes in what they see and think.
People can be mistaken in testimony. People also make mistakes in interpreting evidence. Take Arlen Specter and his Magic Bullet, please...

The bullet found on a stretcher at Parkland Hospital is first on the left, the Magic Bullet. The others were fired into (from the left) water, water, cotton wadding, a sheep bone. The Warren Commission hangs its entire case on Lee Harvey Oswald firing that bullet through JFK and Gov. Connally, causing seven wounds and emerging unscathed on a hospital gurney that never transported either man. Good one.

For those not familiar with the case:
