From the Back Cover
utilizing modern technology, computer animator Dale Myers created a digital simulation of the only known film of the murder, a 16 mm home movie taken by Leon Zapruder, a bystander that filmed the fatal shots. Then Myers matched this digital film to a three dimensional computer model of Dealey Plaza which he created that reconstructs the plaza exactly as it appeared at the time of the murder. The resulting digital animation allowed Myers to recreate the exact view point from any perspective within the plaza at the moment and finally provide concrete evidence of whether or not Oswald was a long assasin or if an actual conspiracy consisted.
Also examined is new evidence discovered years later on an audio tape from an open police microphone at the scene and other theories that circulated including Communist ties and mob involvement in the assassination.

- When you put Kennedy and Connelly in their proper positions in the car there is no question about the single bullet "theory". Given the position of the wound on Connelly's back and it's forward and downward path you realize that the bullet HAD to go through Kennedy, there simply is no other way for it to get to that spot on Connelly's back. In additon it is an oblong wound which means the bullet was tumbling and bullets don't tumble until they hit something. So it's either a single bullet or Kennedy shot Connelly with a magic gun that makes a rifle bullet tumble! (Oops, I may have just started a new conspiracy theory!) Let me repeat that and feel free to check me on it... The wound on Connelly's back was an OBLONG wound. The bullet was tumbling. How can you explain that without coming to the conclusion that the bullet hit Kennedy first? Hmmm?
- When Oswald was arrested he was carrying the revolver that several witnesses saw him shoot Officer J. D. Tippit with. It was matched ballistically to the bullets Tippit was shot with. Officer Tippit stopped Oswald for questioning because he matched the discription of the Dealy Plaza shooter which was given to the police by Howard Brennan as he sat on a wall facing the Book Depostitory. Brennan saw Oswald shoot Kennedy and discribed it in vivid detail.Read more ›
In Pat Speer's online book (chapter 12c), he gives us a much more detailed critique of this "documentary." Anyone who is impressed with this mess simply doesn't know enough about the JFK assassination. The average low-information citizen simply doesn't have enough information to counter misleading programs like this, unless they know where to look for the truth. If you really want to educate yourself about this subject, read some of the books in this list:
Otherwise, you can choose to go on being fooled by TV "documentaries" like this one.
And those negative reviewers who do try to cite facts get them WRONG! One, for example, starts the shots at Zapruder frame 210, giving only 5.6 seconds for the assassination. They really began at frame 160, giving over 8 seconds. Another talks about that the Warren Commission "moving a wound up 5 to six inches" in order to "put this wound in the neck", and also talks about moving Kennedy's head wound up "not one, not two, but 4 full inches from the Eop at the base of the skull to the cowlick in the center of the head."
I've seen the Kennedy autopsy photos. You can see them for yourself at any number of websites that a google search will turn up in less than 3 seconds. The clearly show a large wound at the top of JFK's skull, not at the base, and they also show a wound at the base of the president's neck, not the middle of his upper back where the CTs claim it is. The same reviewer asks: "...now ponder for a moment, do you think a neuromuscular reaction is stronger than a speeding bullet?Read more ›
The most eye-opening part of this program are the findings of computer animator Dale Myers. He designed a computerized 3D replica of Dealey Plaza which utilized the movements of JFK and Governor Connally in the Zapruder film to recreate the shooting. The computer imagery shows the precise positions in the limousine and how a single bullet passed straight through both men causing their simultaneous reactions. The bullet is then traced to its exact source--the sixth floor window of the Texas school book depository. I was very impressed by this footage and think anyone interested in the assassination should see it.
The program also gives a biography of Lee Harvey Oswald with interview clips of his older brother, Robert, a journalist who knew Oswald when he defected to the Soviet Union, and a woman who knew Oswald and his wife in Dallas. It covers Oswald's troubled childhood, his attraction to Marxist philosophy, in large part, (according to his brother) to stand out from the crowd.Read more ›
