WP: Scientists cast doubt on Kennedy bullet analysis

They found that the scientific and statistical assumptions Guinn used -- and the
government accepted at the time -- to conclude that the fragments came from just two bullets fired from Oswald's gun were wrong. "This finding means that the bullet fragments from the assassination that match could have come from three or more separate bullets," the researchers said. "If the assassination fragments are derived from three or more separate bullets, then a second assassin is likely, as the additional bullet would not be attributable to the main suspect, Mr. Oswald."
SNAP, baby!

I still believe Oswald didn't even fire a shot that day. He was a patsy in the complete sense of the word, although who was actually controlling the situation is still a question we may never answer. They had some serious brass balls, though. The subject of the JFK assassination always makes me reflect on how easy it would be to kill someone, particularly if you did not care what happened to you after the deed was done. There are so many times when even the most protected man on the planet is vulnerable that I really feel sorry for the Secret Service. I don't know how they do it, year in and year out, but it must be near impossible to guard against someone who is truly, fanatically dedicated to the task, and is happy to martyr himself in the attempt. Good thing there aren't too many of those people around, right? *cough*
