.Assassination X Rays and Photos

<< < (4/13) > >>

Ray Mitcham:
Why did the Warren Commission look at just the drawings of the wounds in JFK's body instead of asking for the X rays and photographs? Could it have been too embarrassing for their case if they had to explain the real thing?

Doctor Hume " I do not believe, sir, that the availability of the the X rays would materially assist the Commission." :rofl:

"The pictures would show more accurately and in more detail  teh character of the wounds .. They would also perhaps give the Commissioners a bett- better is not the best term , but a more graphic picture of the massive defect in 388" If that was the case why didn't he show them? 

Kevin Raftery:
But If they were willing to consider a conspiracy (after the dictabelt analysis), why would they not have considered using the X-rays in making that determination? To reinforce it.

None of the medical photos would get accepted into court evidence.


Why is that?

It's called chain of possession and the AUTHENTICATION of EVIDENCE Bill...

When there are conflicting testimonies as to which photos/xrays were even taken, that xrays are copies, that photos and xrays are not marked correctly for an autopsy...
and we have numerous witnesses who see two sets of these items... one showing one thing, and another showing a different thing...

There would be no way for the prosecutor to establish which photos were actually taken at the autopsy and which were not...  the only thing these items would be admitted into evidence for, is the conspiracy to kill JFK and cover it up using the medical evidence.
THEN it gets admitted...    :thumbs1xx:

There is another witness who developed autopsy photography, who developed pictures, Chief Robert Knudsen, Navy chief photographers mate, who told the House Committee in a deposition that he developed pictures and he knew darn well that at least one of them showed probes in the body because he remembers examining the negative after he developed it. So, thatís another type of photo that is missing.

And as far as the head X-rays, the skull X-rays go, Jerold Custer, one of the two X-ray technicians was very, very consistent over the years about one thing, he was inconsistent about many other things but he was very consistent about one thing, and that is that five skull X-rays were taken. Well, right now there are only three skull X-rays in the National Archives. And for those who may not aware we should explain I guess that the autopsy photographs and X-rays were held by the Secret Service in a safe in the old Executive Office Building that is across the street from the White House. They were held by them until April of 1965. And then Senator Robert Kennedy, the deceased presidentís brother, Senator Kennedy wrote a letter to the military physician for President Johnson, Admiral, actually by this time Vice-Admiral Burkley, Burkley was the military physician for JFK and for Johnson, after JFK was killed he got promoted from Rear-Admiral to Vice-Admiral, so Burkley was still around controlling access to these things Senator Kennedy, RFK, wrote him a letter and said I want those materials transferred to Mrs. Lincoln at the Archives, that was, she was JFKís secretary and had some office space over there, and was working for Bobby at this time. So, Admiral Burkley conducted an inventory of what was in the safe. He had Secret Service people sign the inventory. He signed it. So, all the materials that are in the archives today were transferred by Burkley from the Secret Service to Robert Kennedy. And then about a year and a half later from Robert Kennedy to the archives. So, that is the provenance of those items.

So, anyway, I think now that weíve started to talk about X-rays itís probably time to move onto area two of fraud in the evidence. So, the first area that we just discussed was destruction of evidence, I mean pictures that we know were taken that are not in the collection. Oh, and I would add one thing to that category, the most credible witness that we interviewed of the ten deponents was Sandra Spencer. Sandra Spencer was a Navy photographers mate who was not at the autopsy but who did develop post mortem photographs the weekend of the assassination. She developed color negatives. She is absolutely certain. She even remembered the name of the chemical process, you know, required to process color negatives. She developed color negatives that weekend and there are no color negatives in the collection, there are only color positive transparencies, slides if you will, 4 by 5 inch slides which are really called transparencies because they are not mounted they are just large pieces of film and black and white negatives. That is what is in the archives today, black and white negatives and color positive transparencies, they are all four inches by five inches, they are large format. She developed large format color negatives and not only that but when we deposed her and showed her the existing collection in the archives she shook her head and said these are not the pictures I developed. She said the president looks much worse here. He looks really beat up. There is a lot of blood in the photographs. And she said no, the photographs that she developed the president had been cleaned up. He looked much better, Apparently they were after a post mortem reconstruction, probably after the morticians were finished. So, those were other additional photographs which were made and are not in the collection. And probably the most significant one that she discussed is, and remember now she is talking about photos taken after the reconstruction by the morticians was completed, a photograph that still had a blow out in the back of the head, a big hole in the back of the head, about two inches wide, where the scalp could not be closed and where there was no bone. So, that recollection of hers, under oath, alone made her trip to Washington worthwhile because what it said was that the observations made by the Dallas treating physicians were surely correct, that there was an exit wound in the back of President Kennedyís head because she remembered this photo, after reconstruction, after the autopsy showing the exact same thing.

What a hoot these kooks are lol.  Marsh isn't impressed by medical experts and Josephs is only impressed with himself lol, lol.  And the beat goes on after 48 years!!!  Conspiracy bias is worse than heart disease.  Heart disease can be treated!

And the correct answer is:

Primarily due to the fact that (especially the anterior/posterior X-ray of the head) shows a bullet entry into the rear of the skull that is in fact some 10 cm/4-inches higher on the skull (the "cowlick" entry) than was the bullet entry identified by all three autopsy surgeons
