37. The unification of physical evidence provided by these calculations

    The physical evidence in the JFK case now speaks with one voice. It provides an extremely strong framework inside which the assassination must be interpreted. Here is its essence.

The movements

The fragments

The rifle

The wounds

The link to Oswald

    All this evidence sums up to two bullets from Oswald's rifle explaining everything. Two questions remain, whether he was the shooter and whether he had help. The first can only be answered probabilistically, for there is no direct hard evidence that he was the shooter. But the tight web of circumstantial evidence provides a probability of >99%, and probably more like 99.9%. It is not certain, however, and will probably never be certain. The second question, concerning help, has been debated for nearly 40 years. It has been investigated endlessly, without yielding anything definitive. Right now we can say that the shooter did not need help and appears not to have received any. Three shots. One missed everything, one hit the back instead of the head, and the last came within an inch or so of missing the head. But they did the job, and then the guy tried to run away.

The critical sequence of events
    The evidence listed above produces the fir following series of events:

    This simple scenario is now complete for all practical purposes. Two shots from Oswald's rifle did everything at Dealey Plaza; four shots from Oswald's pistol on the street in Oak Cliff. No help was needed or allowed by the physical evidence. There is no any physical evidence that any was given. This is now the documented story of the Dallas assassinations. Anything more has remained speculation for nearly 40 years.
