The same shots and timing were easily duplicated.

Eye witness Testimony from fellow Marines that served with Oswald was a horrible shot.

Like I said, he couldn't have been too bad since he qualified as a sharpshooter (middle of three grades) and marksman. The shot was only about 85 yards, vs the 200, 300 & 500 yards the Marines use for qualification.

Records indicate he scored 212 (210 required) when he qualified as sharpshooter in 1956 and 191 (190 required) when he qualified as marksman in 1959. These qualifications were from 200, 300 and 500 yards, from standing, kneeling, sitting and prone positions, at no time using a bench rest or other steadying device.

I understand what the reports are but there are eye witness to say he was a horrible shot. He qualified what four years prior to the shooting?

I don't buy it but hey.

I guess I am not following.

Oswald was clearly qualified as a marksman and his military record and files on this fact are irrefutable. Oswald was shooting from a protected, comfortable firing position with little stress or outside influence. His target, while moving, was not far away and was traveling in a straight line. Independent investigations have corroborated that a shooter, even a relatively inexperienced user, using the exact same rifle, in the exact same time frame, could hit a target in this situation.

All this is somehow irrelevant because eyewitnesses from longer than four years prior said he was a horrible shot?

There was a lone gunman. This is no longer theory, it's fact. The case for Oswald acting alone is just as solid as the cases for Hinkley and Chapman acting alone.

Eye witnesses from 4 years ago who maybe saw hundreds of other guys dressed just like him with the same haircut over his Marine Corps record?

Um, okay.

Well, some of us (ahem) did not revere Kennedy even after the assassination. But I agree that it did affect the way he was remembered by the public-at-large.

Really, the combined weight of the JFK and RFK assassinations -- and you can sort of include MLK in there, too, since it happened in the same era -- had a profound (and negative) impact on the people of that generation, IMHO.

Made for a great song.
