JFK’s Corpse and the Doctors Who Examined It (Warning: Graphic)
Gene Lalor | November 25, 2012
John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States, was assassinated on Friday, November 22, 1963 in Dallas, Texas forty-nine years ago this week. His state funeral took place exactly forty-nine years ago today.
JFK’s tragic death, the circumstances surrounding it, the identity of the assassin(s), the causes, the societal repercussions, and the associated political ramifications, etc. are still being debated almost five decades later and the conspiracy rumors, wild theories, and nasty inuendoes are as rife as they were in 1963.
Most of those unsubstantiated rumors, theories, and innuendoes have been dismissed by objective observers and disproven by reputable historians. Still, Aunt Milly swears she saw puffs of smoke on the infamous grassy knoll and Joe Blow knows for certain he witnessed LBJ handing Lee Harvey Oswald a rifle on the 6th floor of the Texas Book Depository.
Irrefutable conclusions may never be reached on who shot JFK and how and why it happened anymore than we will ever know for sure who killed Nicole Simpson and Cock Robin or, for that matter, who was really behind the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.
Few intelligent people care who killed Cock Robin of nursery tale fame, OJ Simpson was convicted in civil court and in the court of public opinion and, after a century and a half it’s now pretty much irrelevant whether John Wilkes Booth acted alone or in concert with the crumbled Confederacy.
The only semi-recent, semi-resolved murder of consequence in American history is that of Jack Kennedy and only the 27 doctors, nurses, and attendants in Dallas’ Parkland Hospital Trauma Room One were qualified to attest to how he was killed.
And what they saw was markedly different from the results of the autopsy conducted 8-12 hours later at Washington’s Bethesda Naval Hospital as well as from the official report issued by The President’s Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy, the Warren Commission, almost a year later.
When the ultra-liberal, Democrat-Republican-Democrat Arlen Specter (PA), author of “the magic bullet” theory, passed on to his ultimate reward or punishment, JFK assassination truth-deniers must have partied ’til they puked in gleeful expectation that they were home free.
They weren’t even close.
Then a staffer on The President’s Commission, Specter incredibly postulated that a lone bullet shot from Oswald’s Italian Carcano, M91/38 bolt-action rifle caused a total of seven wounds including passing through JFK’s neck, making a miraculous U-turn into Texas Governor John Connally’s chest and wrist, and hitting Connally’s thigh.
The so-called “Magic Bullet” ultimately, conveniently, ended up on Connally’s Parkland gurney, virtually intact.
The only thing Specter’s magic bullet theory–bought in its entirety by the Commission–accomplished was to blare a false message to concerned and confused Americans that we should fear not, that all is good, and that we should just forget about any conspiracy since Arlen Specter and Earl Warren had our backs.
The “magic bullet” scenario was tantamount to contradicting the Physical Laws of Nature.
Eyewitnesses who witnessed the horror of that day–Aunt Millie, Joe Blow and the hundreds of millions who watched the events unfold on black-and-white television–were convinced of everything they were spoon-fed that day and over the following days. However, in retrospect and even if they don’t understand why he was assassinated, many people have come to realize that the official explanation of how Jack Kennedy died was as much a crock as some of the conclusions of the 9/11 Commission.
Those who actually examined Kennedy’s dead body in Parkland Trauma Room One begged to differ with both the televised and subsequent accounts of how JFK died.
Political Correctness had yet to be invented in 1963 but its foundations of speech and thought control were already firmly established.
The Commission released two diagrams of Kennedy’s wounds, neither of which was close to accurate as can be seen by comparing them to photographic evidence. That evidence, those pictures taken at Parkland , were not made available until years later although even Specter had considered them “indispensable” to the Commission’s determinations.
The two drawings, completed at the direction of the Warren Commission and without seeing the gruesome Parkland photos incorporated various critical errors:
“First, the wound in the neck is too high. . . Secondly, the entrance wound in the back of the skull is placed too low. Thirdly, the large wound in the skull extends down too far downward toward the ear.” (http://tinyurl.com/cw8khr9)

The Parkland pictures seem to unmistakably establish what Robert Groden claimed in The Killing of a President, that they were “designed to conceal actual autopsy evidence.”
Almost half a century has elapsed since JFK’s death and I’m not about to speculate on the validity of all the conspiracy theories surrounding his assassination although something clearly stinks in Washington.
I would suggest that Americans haven’t been told the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Then, again, maybe we can’t handle the truth.
