Two days ago in Britain the Channel 5 TV channel ran a documentary on the assassination of JFK on 22 November 1963, from the perspective of evidence heard by the Warren Commission. The documentary focussed on evidence from witnesses that were not called by the Commission to give evidence and suggested that the whole investigation was a ''cover up'' by the Secret Service.
It was alleged that the assassin Lee Harvey Oswald fired only two shots. The first shot was a near miss in which a splinter from the bullet hit JFK, causing him to say he had been hit. The second shot was the one that hit JFK in the neck and Governor Connelly. However the third and killing shot didn't come from Oswald, but from a Secret Service agent in a following vehicle who on hearing the first two shots had picked up an automatic rifle from the floor of his car, flicked off the safety catch upon which the weapon discharged one round which hit JFK right on the back of the head. The telling evidence was that this was an explosive bullet wheras Oswald wasn't using such ammunition.
I was wondering what the American members of this forum make of this. Surely if the weapon had made an accidental discharge it was a lethal shot on incredible odds of hitting such a tiny area to kill JFK?
