Dr. Cyril Wecht on JFK's Murder: A "Coup d'état in America

• LewRockwell.com

According to the Warren Commission (1964), the government's first official investigative panel into the president's death, JFK was shot by lone gunman Lee Harvey Oswald from the 6th floor window of the Texas School Book Depository Building with an Italian Mannlicher-Carcano rifle. The Commission concluded that Oswald fired three shots: one that missed (the Commission said it was inconclusive which of the shots missed), one that hit both Kennedy and Governor John Connally (the "magic bullet"), and the final shot that hit Kennedy in the head.

The "magic bullet" is so named because it followed what seems to be an extraordinary trajectory: it penetrated JFK's back, exited the throat, then proceeded to hit Connally (who was sitting in front of Kennedy), passing through his back, hitting a rib, exiting his chest, hitting his right wrist, and finally hitting his left thigh, leaving behind a small fragment seven millimeters beneath the skin. What was presumably this same bullet was later found on a stretcher in nearly undamaged condition.
