Recasting history

  1. 1. Recasting History: Lee Harvey Oswald on Trial Keith Pruitt Rebekka Pruitt Words of Wisdom Educational Consulting www.woweducationalconsulting.com
  2. 2. What is the basic difference between fiction and nonfiction?
  3. 3. The Kennedy Assassination • On November 22, 1963, while on a campaign swing through Texas, the president was shot dead by a twenty-four-year-old ex-marine drifter named Lee Harvey Oswald. … Kennedy’s death was the isolated act of a single individual, the commission concluded. --America Interpreted by Woods and Gatewood, p. 957- 959 • Then, on November 22, 1963, John F. Kennedy was shot down as his presidential motorcade moved through Dallas, Texas. Police quickly arrested Lee Harvey Oswald as the alleged assassin. Oswald had ties to the Marcello crime family, had once lived in the Soviet Union, and had a bizarre set of political affiliations, especially with groups interested in Cuba. Oswald declared his innocence, but he was never brought to trial. Instead, Oswald himself was killed, while in the custody of the Dallas police, by Jack Ruby, a nightclub owner who also had links to powerful crime figures. --Liberty, Equality, Power: A History of the American People by Murrin, Johnson, McPherson, Gerstle, Rosenberg, Rosenberg, p. 990 • Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963, an act that shocked and saddened the entire world. –The American Profile by Borden and Graham, p. 364
  4. 4. This is a work of fiction But so is much of this
  5. 5. The Zapruder Film
  6. 6. Who? What? When? Where? How? What if?
  7. 7. • The conclusion of the United States House of Representatives Select Committee on Assassinations determined that there was every reason to believe that John F. Kennedy died as the result of a conspiracy and that there was reason to believe there was more than one shooter. • But what they nor anyone else has ever done is prove conclusively that Lee Harvey Oswald ever fired a shot at the President.
  8. 8. It was here that I was haunted by the statement of Oswald “I’m just a patsy!” • What if he was a patsy? • He never received a trial. • Why are there still over 28,000 documents related to the assassination being withheld while “national security” issues are determined
  9. 9. Then I saw this!
  10. 10. Curry plants just enough seeds of doubt to make a researcher want to dig further. No one was closer to the investigation in Dallas than Curry.
  11. 11. Building on primary source materials we began to fill in the “what if” blanks.
  12. 12. Beers picture of sniper’s nest in TSBD Warren Commission Exhibit Studebaker Picture of Sniper’s Nest
  13. 13. Another Studebaker Picture from crime scene
  14. 14. What we created is an historical fiction book that has perhaps more truth than the Warren Report. An excerpt from chapter 9 page 68
  15. 15. What we have Learned • We have learned without a doubt that the Warren Commission did not even pay attention to its own witnesses: 1. Governor Connolly said he heard the first shot “one never hears the shot that hits you.” Look at the Altgens picture
  16. 16. What we have Learned • We have learned without a doubt that the Warren Commission did not even pay attention to its own witnesses: 1. Governor Connolly said he heard the first shot “one never hears the shot that hits you.” Look at the Altgens picture
  17. 17. What we have Learned • We have learned without a doubt that the Warren Commission did not even pay attention to its own witnesses: 1. Governor Connolly said he heard the first shot “one never hears the shot that hits you.” Look at the Altgens picture 2. The Warren Report stated that the first shot missed, the second hit Kennedy in the back, exited his throat, hit Connolly causing five different wounds and fell out on a stretcher at Parkland Hospital. The third shot was the fatal head shop according to the Warren Report. They reported that all three shots came from Oswald’s Carcano from the sixth floor TSBD window.
  18. 18. And the Government wants us to believe that this bullet caused six different wounds in two different men, when...
  19. 19. These bullet fragments were taken from the wrist of governor Connolly and other fragments were left in his body. How did a near pristine bullet manage to do that much damage and leave behind more fragments than are actually missing from the bullet? The Miracle Bullet
  20. 20. Warning! Autopsy Picture Coming Next
  21. 21. This is the drawing in the Warren Report that was made from the autopsy photos. It alleges an entry point and a “blow out on the right temporal/parietal lobe”. The Parkland doctors and nurses all disputed this.
  22. 22. A Carcano Bullet is meant to go through its target not explode. Yet the bullet that hit the President in the head exploded into numerous pieces.
  23. 23. What About Oswald Memorandum written by CIA Director John McCone to James Rowley, Chief of Secret Service What about Mexico
  24. 24. Taken outside the Soviet Embassy in Mexico City in October, 1963, the government reported this to be Oswald. He was attempting to get a visa to Cuba.
  25. 25. Yet they knew it wasn’t
  26. 26. In his questioning by Lieutenant Fritz, Oswald denied he had ever been to Mexico City.
  27. 27. What About Oswald Memorandum written by CIA Director John McCone to James Rowley, Chief of Secret Service What about Mexico Call in jail, two placed- one to an intelligence operative in North Carolina, the second to a lawyer in New York City Where was Oswald at the time of the Assassination? Oswald and Jack Ruby Oswald and the Intelligence Community in New Orleans Closest witnesses to President and to alleged sniper’s nest These are facts, not myths
  28. 28. And then there is this!
  29. 29. For decades experts have said that the throat wound was a wound of entrance. All six doctors at Parkland testified that the President had sustained a throat wound that was consistent with a wound of entrance.
  30. 30. Now we have PROOF!!!
  31. 31. Chief Curry and Secret Service Chief Forrest Sorrels were riding in the car in front of the President. Both testified that their car was at the steps of the grassy knoll when they heard the first shots (recognized as rifle shots) and they both looked up to the picket fence from which they both believed the shots were fired.
  32. 32. We may never know exactly what happened here, what I do know is the Warren Commission got it wrong!
  33. 33. Thank You Keith Pruitt Rebekka Pruitt Words of Wisdom Educational Consulting www.woweducationalconsulting.com
