Was Oswald even living there? Was Crafard? Was anyone tied to the case? Or was a convenient location ran by shady folks? Was Oswald still living at the YMCA? Something goes boom a little after 3 pm…..why?

If you’re a regular reader of 22November, then you’re no doubt familiar with newest 22N columnist Dusty Rohde’s excellent 2- parter, “The Murder Of J.D. Tippit”.
Dusty~just like You & Me~has been fascinated by-and researching- the Coup Of ’63 for many years, and has uncovered an unexplored avenue or two in the second murder attributed to Our Patsy, Lee Harvey Oswald.
Join me in welcoming Dusty to TDA! LISTEN/DOWNLOAD READY! THANK YOU.
I have thought, and thought, and thought……and thought on just how to write the second part of this story. I wrote several pages, several times, and deleted as many. You see, I was writing to include and examine every minor detail related to Tippit’s murder. In the process of all that thinking, it occurred to me, every little detail wasn’t necessary to identify a prime suspect in Tippit’s murder. So often, in any crime, resolving the crime
is a matter of perspective. If I were to follow the footsteps of previous investigators and
researchers, I would likely end up with the same results….which is not my goal, nor
should it be, as there is no need for me to accomplish what they already have.
In part I, it was determined that between 1:00pm and 1:03pm, Lee Harvey Oswald
was present at his rooming house. Prior to 1:00pm relates to JFK’s assassination, events
after 1:03 are related more to Tippit’s murder. So this point in time, is somewhat the
dividing line between the two…with one minor exception.
If Lee Harvey Oswald didn’t shoot Officer Tippit in the manner popularized by the
Warren Commission, we have to ask “Who did”. We have to start from ground zero.
Between 1:00 and 1:03pm, LHO was at his rooming house. At 1:00, Officer Tippit was
at the Top Ten Record store(1). These two positions are on the map, (shown below).
If Oswald originally intended to go to the Theatre, he could easily catch the bus, which is pretty much a straight line down to the Texas Theatre. Earlene Roberts testified she saw Oswald standing at the
bus stop. Soooo….it’s not a stretch
of the imagination to think that Lee did actually take the bus. For those of you who think Oswald was on foot, I have a challenge to
offer. Please show me the witness
testimonies stating that anyone
saw Oswald walking down Beckley Avenue, to the Tippit murder scene or to the Texas Theatre. You won’t be able to….because he didn’t. Remember I said show me witnesses
who saw Oswald walking down “Beckley Avenue”, not any place else. Imagination does
not count as evidence, and it is evidence that we should be looking for. Yes, I know some witnesses identified Oswald “at the scene”….we’ll get to that, but let’s not put the cart before the horse.
J.D. Tippit was parked at the Gloco station on the Houston street viaduct, near N. Zangs Blvd and N. Marsalis at 12:45(2). At 12:45pm the first reports giving a description of JFK’s assassin
went out over the police radio by DPD dispatchers(3). It is important to point out that no one identified Oswald by name over the radio, “prior” to Tippit’s murder. So, for anyone to say Tippit or anyone else was hunting Oswald before 1:15pm (by name), is in fact false. Oswald had not been identified by name until his arrest at the theatre.
Next action, between 12:45 and 12:54, witnesses saw J.D. Tippit go “tearing off”
down Lancaster in his vehicle(4)(5). DPD dispatchers asked Officer Tippit his location at 12:54, Tippit responded by saying he was at “8th and Lancaster”. According to Harry
N. Olsen, he was off duty that day guarding an “estate” on 8th street (near 8th and Lancaster), roughly four blocks from his girlfriends house. His girl friend and future wife was Kathy Helen Coleman, who lived north of 8th street at 325 N. Ewing. Kathy was one of Jack Ruby’s exotic dancers at the Carousel Club. Harry Olsen’s knee cap was injured when his friend Jack Ruby ran into him by accident, (ice skating)(6). This injury
occurred several weeks prior to Tippit’s murder, (*note, it generally only takes 8 weeks for most injuries to heal). Jack Ruby, Kathy Coleman and Harry N. Olsen had been friends for quite awhile before Tippits murder(7).
Next action, Tippit arrives at the Top Ten Record store at approximately 1:00pm and requests to use the phone. He’s rushed, he dials the number and gets no answer(8). Let me point out that “A”, you don’t dial a strangers phone number from memory, as we don’t tend to commit strangers phone numbers to memory. It’s a safe bet that Tippit knew
exactly who he was calling, or trying to call…but no one answered. It’s not unusual for Policeman or Firefighters to use a “land line” (telephone). Phones are more secure then radio transmissions, and also if you don’t want the information going out to everyone in the department, we would use a telephone. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if he were tying to call into the DPD dispatchers.
Getting no answer on the telephone….Tippit leaves the Record store in a hurry. At approximately 1:03….Tippit missed a radio call from his dispatcher. Right about this time, Tippit had cut off James A. Andrews car by pulling in front of it and jumping out to search Andrews vehicle….all without saying a word(9). Everyone to date seems to be mystified by this behavior by Tippit. Tippit pulled James A. Andrews over on W. 10th Street….what is significant about that? James Andrews worked at American National
Life Insurance company on W. 10th Street…where Roscoe White also worked.(10) Could Tippit have been hunting for Roscoe White? Hmmm….. maybe we should think on that. Tippit pulling over Andrews was no coincidence, Tippit was hunting on 10th Street, both
East and West! What did he know that was related to 10th street…and how did it connect to Roscoe White? Tippit didn’t find Roscoe White in Andrews vehicle and Andrews claims Tippit didn’t say a word, but I don’t really buy that Tippit and Andrews didn’t talk.
In any case, Tippit traveled east from the point where he stopped Andrews, driving slowly, hunting, alert. He had been looking for somebody (Roscoe) in Andrews car and not finding them he was still looking, driving slowly east on 10th Street, (see below).
Now, in Part I of this story, it was already demonstrated that Lee Harvey Oswald could not have possibly walked to the Tippit murder scene in time to shoot Tippit, no way, no how….didn’t happen. On the other hand, we know that somebody did walk to the
Tippit murder scene and did shoot Tippit…because witnesses saw this individual do just that. The very first place that witnesses stated they saw the shooter walking, was at the intersection of 10th and Marsalis, (see map above, blue circle). Coincidentally, 10th and Marsalis is roughly four blocks from Kathy Coleman’s apartment. This was about the distance that Olsen claimed to be working from Kathy’s apartment, (although Olsen claimed he was working on 8th street). At the same time, Olsen…being the professional policeman…. could not remember the address of this supposed “estate” he was guarding Nor could Olsen remember who was paying him, or the name of the fellow police
patrolman who hired him for the job. He couldn’t remember the name of the person who owned the property or what time he left the property. Olsen was also on foot that day…as
he left his car with Kathy Coleman….Olsen…buddy of Jack Ruby. Olsen…who was a hostile witness and who claimed he could remember next to nothing. Olsen who after giving testimony to the Warren Commission requested a large part of the testimony be deleted(11). Harry Olsen….who was told by Chief Curry to leave the department but
Harry refused to give all the reasons for that request. Yes, somebody was in the
neighborhood that day, on foot, with no legitimate alibi…and his name is Harry Neal Olsen, of the Dallas PD, (see images below).
Some of Harry Olsen’s testimony are still sealed to this day, reason’s unknown. Harry
Olsen was very near to the area where witnesses first began to see the Tippit shooter walking west down 10th street, beginning at “E. 10th and Lancaster” (which just happens to be four blocks from Kathy Coleman’s, the distance Harry said he was working from her apartment). Several witnesses saw this individual walking down the street and then shoot J.D. Tippit. These witnesses included, Mr. Clark @ the barber shop at 610 E. 10th
Street, William L. Smith, Dick Loomis, Jimmy Burt, William A. Smith, and Frank Wright, all of which gave testimonies related to the shooter walking West down 10th
Street, arriving just in time to shoot Tippit (see pages at the end of this story). Of course this also included Domingo Benavides, Helen Markham and others. The shooter was essentially in constant visual contact by witness from 10th and Lancaster all the way to
the murder scene. Oswald could not have gotten there, as this would be an even farther distance then going to the murder scene from his rooming house. Oswald could NOT get
there, not by walking, not by running, no way, no how. Harry Olsen on the other hand could have…and very easily. So at this point, let’s take a moment and review a few noted facts on Tippit’s murder. First….every cop knows that the best witness is a dead witness, and many will be the first to tell you that. Tippit’s killer took extra care to be sure to go back and shoot him in the head….just for insurance. A bad cop would know to do that. Second, witnesses testified that it looked as if the shooter and Tippit knew each other. Tippit and Olsen knew each other….cop to cop…locker room stuff. Third, the five live rounds found in LHO’s pocket are identical to those used by Police departments(12).
Fourth, several times the Tippit shooter was described as slightly heavy-stocky and with
dark bushy hair, 5’10”…which is a far closer match to Harry Olsen….not Lee Harvey Oswald. Fifth….one of Tippit’s co-workers described him as not being “too bright”.
Tippit’s shooter says “poor dumb cop or poor damn cop”….poor dumb cop….familiarity, that Olsen would have had. Sixth, the shooter walked casually away from the scene, and went over to reload his pistol…in front of all the witnesses….he didn’t run away like most
criminals would have. A person with his knee still healing might not want to run. A cop
planting shells, knowing Oswald was being set up would take their time to let witnesses see him dump the shells. But there is other….lesser known evidence we need to look at, such as the second Dallas police car in the drive way moving slowly towards Tippit’s patrol car(13).
Yes, you read correctly, a second Dallas police vehicle in the driveway but back near the alley. The very driveway which Tippit’s vehicle was blocking. If you don’t know, Tippit
went a little past the driveway….then suddenly backed up in a hurry!! Yes, to block the driveway…. in the process a lady behind him bumped his patrol car. I’d feel comfortable
assuming that Tippit spotted the patrol car….which he knew shouldn’t have been in the
area…and very likely was Officer Mentzel and also likely, Roscoe White. These two
officers are likely the same two policeman in the car that honked in front of Oswald’s
rooming house. But what is really telling…..is that the officer who walked out into the street to look at Tippit…made no effort to help him, made no effort to call in the murder
to the DPD dispatchers, but fled the scene!! I strongly suspect that in the process of fleeing, this officer probably also picked up Harry Olsen. Now….you could argue that some of the witnesses identified Oswald….and I could argue that far more people have misidentified Oswald than ever correctly identified him. I could also go down the list and demonstrate all the witnesses who first said it wasn’t Oswald and then later changed their testimonies. I could bring up people that were threatened by DPD offices to keep quiet who changed their stories or just went along with whatever they were told to say.
Or I could point out that William Whaley (Oswald’s cab driver) signed his affidavit
stating Oswald was the guilty party…. BEFORE he even went into the line-ups, and that he then picked someone else in the line-up besides Oswald as the person he gave a ride to. That not only did Harry Olsen’s girlfriend Kathy Kay work for Jack Ruby, so did Roscoe White’s wife Geneva. I could go on and on and on about pointing these things out….but this is old news.
Oswald wasn’t at the scene and he didn’t have the opportunity to shoot Officer Tippit, some police officers did though. This wasn’t a coincidence, these people were all converging on the same area, for a reason. The shooter, Tippit, the second police car…all heading to the same spot….all cops….good cops, bad cops…. dead cop, conspiracy. I could very easily
write an entire book on this subject, probably two or three, but I’m going to leave you with these thoughts and new insights.
In 51 years, no committee, not the Warren Commission, Church Commission, the Rockefeller Commission nor any law agency….the DPD, FBI, CIA…not one of them ever got the time line of the Tippit murder right. The one person mentioned recently who
got it right was Helen Markham, the person closest to the murder, besides the killer himself. The CLOSEST person to the murder, besides the killer. How is it then, that Harry Neal Olsen and Kathy Helen Coleman, who needed an alibi, who couldn’t remember next to nothing the entire day, just knew for certain that they had to have had their lunch between 1:00 and 1:15pm? How did they know exactly what time to be sure and cover (the precise time of the murder) and alibi themselves accordingly? Hmmm?
With that….I’m going to bid you all good night, as it’s now 4am and I’m getting a little
sleepy, LOL. The story doesn’t end here, the doors are just beginning to open. There was
a reason these police officers converged in this area. Those reasons involve the Abundant Life Church, Alpha 66, Collins Radio, corruption in the DPD and corruption that reaches all the way to the Warren Commission itself. Those stories will be coming
soon…but not tonight. The truth is coming like an ocean wave.

I’ll get into the safe houses in the next time around.
On November 22nd, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated by what was once described as “a flurry of bullets” while riding in his Presidential motorcade in Dealey Plaza, Dallas, Texas. Within the hour, Dallas police patrolman, “J.D. Tippit ”would be gunned down in the streets of Oak Cliff (a Dallas suburb) in what could only be described as, in the style of a “professional execution”.
The Dallas PD and Warren Commission would later claim both deaths were related and that “Communist sympathizer” Lee Harvey Oswald killed both men. Lee Harvey Oswald, without legal representation or a single day in court, was quickly “Branded” (with full intent) by the Warren Commission as the “Lone Assassin” and “Cop Killer”.
The evidence in the case of J.D. Tippit is in direct conflict with this assessment of Oswald. Truth be told, evidence indicates that Oswald’s alleged “guilt” is suspect, well beyond “reasonable doubt”, as defined in Courts of Law. In reviewing the case of Tippit’s murder, one quickly discovers a deliberate and methodical manipulation of evidence. Manipulation which appears to have been done (at least in part) by the Dallas Police Department. A manipulation designed to lay the blame for J.D. Tippit’s murder at Oswald’s feet, but is it truth?
J.D. Tippit died a married man with three children. On the morning of November 22nd, J.D. Tippit said to his eldest son “no matter what happens today, I want you to know that I love you”(1). That very same morning, Tippit returned a Spanish language book to his niece(2), (he had been self learning Spanish). Tippit had the habit of working extra jobs to make money. While working these extra jobs, Tippit also had the habit of picking up a spare girlfriend or two. One of those rumoured girlfriends was reported to be Clara Jo Monk, whom he met while working part time at the Austin BBQ(3). Tippit was also reported to have dated one of the “Witherspoon” girls. One of those girls (by her own testimony) was “Johnny Maxie Thompson “Witherspoon” (married to Claude Witherspoon), “Johnny” had also worked at the Austin BBQ and testified she did indeed date Tippit(4). The other “Witherspoon” girl was Joyce Lee Witherspoon (aka, Joyce Lee McDonald or Joyce Lee Gordon). I can tell you, having spoken with Joyce, that she gets jumpy as a bullfrog on the subject of J.D. Tippit. When I asked Joyce if she had ever seen Tippit in the Carousel Club, she choked on her own words and stuttered worse than Porky Pig….it was a question that clearly rattled her. In fact, Joyce continued to stutter, start and stop with her answer saying, well they were all in there (meaning DPD officers) because “Jack” made them coffee and had danish for them. Then, stuttering a bit more, she just said “no” in a way that it sounded more to me like she was saying no to block memories from resurfacing, than answering my question. Jack Ruby himself had stated at one point that he knew Tippit(5), (then later denied it). About this time, Joyce changed the subject. She began telling me how she was working for Eva Grant (Ruby’s sister) at the Vegas Club, prior to working for Jack Ruby. She said this is where she met Jack, and that she decided to go to work for him because Eva was such a “brutal bitch” to work for. This got my attention immediately, as Eva herself testified that J.D. Tippit had been in the Vegas Club, and named others who could confirm or verify this information(6). This revelation also exposed a further possibility for Joyce (aka Joy Dale) to have been in contact with J.D. Tippit. I also asked Joyce if she was related to Claude Witherspoon, in an attempt to discern how familiar she may have been with Johnnie Maxie Witherspoon. Joyce hesitated and then stated she remembered Claude, and that was it. So why bring up this subject at all? During investigations by committees it was discovered that Joyce Lee McDonald had once lived in the area of J.D. Tippit’s murder(7). Joyce had lived at 328 E. 9th Street and also at 410 1/2 Tenth Street (East or West is currently unknown). If her former address was 410 1/2 E. Tenth Street, it would be precisely where J.D. Tippit’s police vehicle was parked when murdered. Tippit’s vehicle blocked the driveway which exited from the alleyway. There was a small apartment between 404 and 410 E. Tenth street from which the Tippit shooter may have emerged. Currently, it isn’t known who rented or owned this apartment at the time of the shooting, but could it be significant? Two witnesses saw Tippit in this neighborhood so often before the murder (far from his assigned patrol zone), they thought he lived there(8, 9). The Dallas PD swept this under the rug by saying Tippit “was one of those officers who liked to drive a lot”(10). Who was J.D. Tippit spending so much time and interest with in this neighborhood (and outside his normal patrol zone)? Joy Dale (J.D.) is one possibility. Joy Dale was pregnant with her second child on the day of Tippit’s murder. Whatever Tippit’s interest in the area, it had been going on some time prior to President Kennedy’s visit.
Government agencies have tried every which way to represent Lee Harvey Oswald as “running” away from shooting of the President, with a weapon, at the Tippit murder scene and on foot. Why? Because they needed to demonstrate “Motive, Means and Opportunity” to charge Oswald as Tippit’s killer AND link him to the assassination. The Warren Commission declared that Oswald shot J.D. Tippit at 1:15 or 1:16pm.
Well let me tell all of you something. If Lee Harvey Oswald shot J.D. Tippit at either 1:15 or 1:16pm, he shot a dead man! Oswald shot a dead man, because J.D. Tippit’s “legal and lawful” time of death, on his Death Certificate, recognized by any court in this country….is 1:15pm(11)! Yes, you read right, 1:15pm.
The insert shown above is taken from the actual Certificate of Death, Tippit’s name was misspelled, but the document clearly shows the time and date of death. There is no way Lee Harvey Oswald shot a “living” J.D. Tippit at either 1:15 or 1:16pm. That statement by the Warren Commission was an outright lie. A lie expressed for the sole purpose of deceiving the American public. The Warren Commission had the Tippit documents in their hands, they knew the “legal” time of death, they knew Oswald couldn’t have shot Tippit at 1:15 or 1:16pm, and yet they still chose to tell the lie. J.D. Tippit could not have been shot at 1:16, his legal and lawful time of death is as recorded, 1:15pm. Why does that matter? Before Tippit was pronounced “dead” at the hospital, he had to be removed from the ambulance, wheeled to the ER, transferred off of the ambulance gurney onto the hospital bed. Doctors had to do a quick scan, then attempt to clear an airway and possibly administer CPR in the attempt to save Tippit’s life(12), all “before” declaring the man officially dead.
Parking the ambulance, unloading the gurney with Tippit’s body, wheeling it to the ER and Doctor’s and Nurses attempting to save Tippit’s life would have taken at the bare minimum, one minute……more likely two. Now, starting with Tippit’s “lawful” time of death….let’s do a little math. Subtract the “one minute” from 1:15, and you have a time of 1:14. Between 1:14 and 1:15, Tippit arrived at Methodist Hospital and staff attempted to save his life. It’s not rocket science folks….just simple math.
Now, according to Google Maps, it takes 5 minutes (in “NO” traffic) to travel from410 E. 10th Street to the Methodist Hospital if using Beckley. This is the shortest possible route. Would driving the ambulance “in traffic”, running with “lights and sirens” be faster? As a former Fire Fighter and ambulance driver, I would say not. It would likely take about the same amount of time or slightly longer. We would drive at faster speeds between intersections but also slow to a crawl when approaching the intersections to prevent any collisions with ongoing traffic. Two other possible routes are listed for travelling to the Methodist Hospital from 410 E. 10th Street, but both would take an even longer span of driving time. For the sake of argument and any doubters, I will here again use the shortest route and shortest amount of time noted; This is shown highlighted in red on the following chart. The chart showing a distance of travel being 1.4 miles is the shortest route. I don’t however know with certainty that the ambulance driver chose to drive the shortest route, they very well may have taken a longer route. The three possible routes are shown on the chart below.
So, to reiterate, I’m going to use the shortest and fastest possible route, with the shortest amount of time wasted for the Tippit time line. So, subtracting the travel time of “5 minutes” from our previous results of “1:14pm”…..we arrive at a time of 1:09, 1:09pm being the time that the ambulance left the murder scene at 410 E. 10th Street. Now, from this point, we have to use a little common sense. By that, I mean that the ambulance wasn’t already at the murder scene when Tippit was killed, somebody had to call for it. The person who requested a call for the ambulance (by using his radio) was a taxi cab driver, a man and murder witness by the name of “William W. Scoggins”. Before Mr. Scoggins made the call for the ambulance, he had to have a reason for the request in the first place. That reason, was seeing J.D. Tippit shot in front of his eyes, which obviously happened BEFORE 1:09pm. Each of the described actions takes time to unfold, this isn’t hard to understand. According to Scoggins testimony, he saw Tippit’s vehicle come to a stop and saw Tippit get out of the vehicle. He saw Tippit grabbing at his stomach (after being shot) and falling to the street. The shooter then ran around the opposite side of the car and shot Tippit in the head. Scoggins hid behind his cab and saw the shooter running past him, with his face turned away from him. He heard the man say either “poor dumb cop” or “poor damn cop”. Scoggins also apparently saw the shooter stop and unload his gun. As the shooter continued on, Scoggins radioed his dispatcher to request an ambulance be sent to the scene. The dispatcher in turn would have to make a telephone call to request the ambulance and provide pertinent information, like the location the ambulance was needed and the reason for the request. That person would have to notify the ambulance crew to send them on their way(13).
Remember now, during each of these steps, the clock is ticking. Once all of this was done, the ambulance crew would still have to drive to the scene, in traffic. They would still have to find Tippit, position the ambulance, unload the gurney, roll it over to Tippit, load Tippit onto the gurney, wheel the gurney to the ambulance, and place the gurney and Tippit inside the ambulance, all… before 1:09pm. I need to stop here and give a brief personal history. During my time as a Fire Fighter, I filled several roles over the years. I was sent to a specialized school for the specific training of driving Fire Department vehicles in extreme conditions. Upon completing this course, I was assigned to the position of “Driver Trainer” in the Fire Department in which I worked. I was assigned for a couple of years on our ambulance….and have loaded and unloaded patients to emergency rooms many times. As a Fire Fighter, I also filled the role of “ARO” (Alarm Room Operator) and ATC (Air Traffic Controller) on a regular basis. So I have a fair idea of what is involved in emergency situations and transportation. Now, for these events to have transpired, from the moment Scoggins saw Tippit shot, to the ambulance
crew loading Tippit, would have taken time. I’m going to be very generous and say that these events would have taken a minimum of three minutes from start to finish. If we subtract those three minutes from 1:09pm, we arrive at a time of 1:06pm, the real time that J.D. Tippit was shot. Coincidentally, the time of 1:06 for the shooting happens to match the stated time of the shooting in Helen Markham’s testimony. The only witness who was outside at the same time, every day she went to work(14)(15).
Mrs. Markham makes two separate inferences in her comments. The first being that the shooting was 6 or 7 minutes after 1pm. This coincides with our time line of 1:06pm. Then she also indicates that the shooting was “before” 1:15, which is affirmed by the official time of death of 1:15pm. So where does this lead us?
According to Warren Commission calculations and witness testimony, Lee Harvey Oswald arrived at his rooming house at 1:00pm(16). His landlady, Mrs. Earlene Roberts, stated that Oswald was at the rooming house for no more than “three or four minutes”(17), before walking out of the door. (see image, next page).
Here again, I’ll be generous….and use the shortest amount of time mentioned by Mrs. Roberts, as the time Oswald stayed in the rooming house or three minutes. This results in the time of Oswald’s leaving as 1:03pm. The distance to the Tippit murder scene was 9/10th’s of a mile. Tippit was shot at 1:06pm. During my four years in High School, I was in Track and Field, as a cross country, long distance runner. I can tell you with certainty, that no one, in the history of man can run that distance in three minutes, including any of the current or past world record holders, much less walk it in three minutes. The Warren Commission of course claimed that it took Oswald much longer to walk the distance (see below).
According to the claim shown above, the Warren Commission just proved Lee Harvey Oswald was innocent! If LHO didn’t get to 10th and Patton until shortly after 1:15pm, he didn’t shoot Tippit, because Tippit is at this very moment at the Methodist Hospital being declared officially and “legally” dead! No matter how the WC attempted to manipulate the lie, it just doesn’t work. Oswald did not walk to the Tippit murder scene at 1:15pm, and he didn’t shoot J.D. Tippit at 1:15pm. He didn’t walk 9/10th’s of a mile in 3 minutes and he didn’t run 9/10th’s of a mile in 3 minutes. None of these things happened, this information is not hearsay, it is documented evidence, and my friends,… that’s fact!
Does this information absolve Lee Harvey Oswald of possible guilt? No. What it does do is demonstrate very clearly and without exception that there is indeed an abundance of “reasonable doubt”. In reality….the evidence goes beyond reasonable doubt, all the way to absolute certainty, that events did not unfold as the Warren Commission has claimed. If we are to ever uncover the truth, it will not be done by building upon a foundation of lies.
