As in any murder case, first-day evidence in the JFK assassination is the best evidence. By that I mean, witnesses’ memories are fresh and doctors’ first impressions are the most accurate; Their recollections are untainted by pressure from those sinister agencies—the CIA, Secret Service and FBI—who attempted mightily to get them to change their accounts later, when those accounts contradicted the official lies. For instance, read what Dr. Malcolm Perry had to say about the JFK wounds he saw on November 22, 1963:
From Best Evidence, by David Lifton, pp.61-62: “White House transcript 1327-C makes the debate concerning what Dr. Perry said about the throat wound on November 22 academic. The matter came up three times. Each time, Perry said the throat wound was an entrance.”…[Dr. Perry speaking]’There are two…one of the neck and one of the head.”
“QUESTION: ‘Where was the entrance wound?
‘DR. PERRY: ‘There was an entrance wound in the neck.
‘NEXT QUESTION: “Which way was the bullet coming on the neck wound? At him?
‘DR.PERRY: ‘It appeared to be coming at him…the wound appeared to be an entrance wound in the front of the throat…'”
From a St. Louis Post-Dispatch story of Dec. 18, 1963, by Richard Dudman, “…the question that suggests itself is: How could the President have been shot in the front, from the back?”
And there is this from another Parkland doctor, Dr. McClelland. He said, “It certainly did look like an entrance wound…we are familiar with wounds, we see them every day–sometimes several a day. This did appear to be an entrance wound.”
From Best Evidence, pp. 14-15: “Sixty-four known witnesses indicated that shots originated from forward of the motorcade, from the grassy knoll. This amounted to approximately two-thirds of the ninety witnesses whose accounts appeared in the twenty-six volumes [of the Warren Report]…who expressed an opinion as to the source of the shots.”
From JFK And The Unspeakable, by James Douglass, p. 308: “Twenty-one out of twenty-two witnesses at Parkland Hospital–most of them doctors and nurses, trained medical observers–agreed in their earliest statements that JFK’s head wound was located in the right rear of his skull, demonstrating a fatal head shot from the front.”
