Comment on Site Section: JFK Assassination
There are just too many inconsistencies in all the official investigations of JFK's murder. One glaring fact is Oswald was not a good shot. The following is a direct quote from another web site: "Even after weeks of practice and intensive training, he barely managed to qualify at the level of "Sharpshooter," the middle of three qualifications in the Marines. He obtained a score of 212, two points above the minimum for the "Sharpshooter" level. In other words, even after extensive training and practice, and even though he was firing at stationary targets with a semi-automatic rifle and had plenty of time to shoot (even during the so-called "rapid-fire" phase), Oswald narrowly missed scoring at the lowest possible qualification level. The next time Oswald fired for record in the Marines, he barely managed to qualify at all, obtaining a score of 191, which was one point above the minimum needed for the lowest qualification level, "Marksman." To put it another way, he came within two points of failing to qualify." (the following is my comment): It's interesting to note that even though he barely qualified with a semi-automatic rifle firing at non-moving targets, Oswald was able to fire three shots at a moving target and obtain two hits (either of which would have been fatal) in a matter of seconds with a bolt-action rifle. Anyone who believes this, probably believes Santa Claus lives at the North Pole, the tooth fairy is real and the Easter Bunny delivers eggs on Easter.
