Ventura: “Too Many Bullets” In Official JFK Story
Do you remember the name Roy Kellerman? He was the Secret Service agent in charge on the ground in Dallas. He was the guy sitting right in front of President Kennedy; the one who screamed at the driver to get them out of the line of fire. He was the guy who knew what was going on better than anybody; the Special Agent-in-Charge of the White House Secret Service Detail.
The official testimony of Roy Kellerman blew the doors off of the Warren Commission. He basically looked right at ’em and told them that once the limousine had gone into the kill zone of Dealey Plaza that he knew they had driven right into an ambush, taking fire from all over the place, that “a flurry of shells came into the car” and that they were definitely wrong about their gunshot total because “there had to be more than three shots, gentleman.”
As you might imagine, Roy Kellerman was not a real popular guy with members of the Warren Commission.
They minimized his testimony as much as they could, even though, quite admirably, Mr. Kellerman refused to buckle under to the obvious pressure and would not conform to the official government version. He told the truth instead…Mr. Kellerman was, of course, correct. The evidence proves that there were more than three shots. One shot missed. Even the Warren Commission acknowledged that missed shot. It hit the street, creating sparks and is probably the shot that wounded bystander James Tague. One bullet hit President Kennedy in his back, four inches below the nape of his neck and to the right of his spine. That shot was fired from the rear of the limousine. There’s a hole in the back of his clothing that proved it.
Then there was the throat shot. It hit President Kennedy in his throat from the front, just as the emergency room doctors in Dallas described it. The doctors observed the wound and described it as a “wound of entry” which they then utilized in order to make their tracheotomy incision.
That was probably the same bullet that went through the windshield of the car and was a bullet from the front. Some people think that the windshield shot was separate. But let’s be very conservative here and say that it was the same one that hit Kennedy in the throat. So that’s already three.
There was at least one shot, and in all likelihood two, that hit Governor John Connally. The Governor always held to his testimony that he was positive the first bullet that hit him was a separate bullet from the one that struck the President in the throat. After Connally had heard gunfire and turned around from the front seat to look at Kennedy, that’s when the governor first got hit… which now makes four.
But the extensive wounds that Connally suffered—if you look at the angles and what that bullet would have had to do—make it difficult to think a single shot was all that struck him. It pierced him, came out his nipple, broke his ribs, went through his wrist, and ended up in his left thigh? A “magic bullet” indeed!
Here’s another very damning reason: A bullet can’t grow in size from the time it leaves the rifle and hits the target, can it? But that “magic bullet” could not possibly account for the amount of shrapnel that was found in Connally’s body.
So if I’m right about this, then that’s five so far. Then there was the head shot. That one hit President Kennedy from the front, entering at his right temple, and causing a massive blowback exit from the right rear of his skull, forcefully driving his head and entire body backward and to his left.
That’s six, double the number of shots that Oswald supposedly fired from the sixth-floor window. So you can see why all the Washington lawyers panicked and had to invent a preposterous story about a “magic bullet” that went through Kennedy and then also caused all the wounds in Connally.
Because the simple fact of the matter is this: If there were too many bullets, the shooting could not have been done by one “lone assassin,” and the whole official government version comes falling down like the house of cards it truly is.
We’ll get to the invention of that “magic bullet” in the section on the coverup. For now, just remember that number. Six probable shots in Dealey Plaza! And some tireless researchers believe there were more than that—as many as nine!
