This is the conspiracy theory from Oliver Stone’s JFK
Document B: Photo Analysis LEE HARVEY OSWALD WITH RIFLE
Oswald was confronted with the photographs at 6 p.m. on Saturday (November 23, 1963) by Capt. Fritz:
»…He said the picture was not his, that the face was his face, but that this picture had been made
by someone superimposing his face, the other part of the picture was not him at all and that he
had never seen the picture before…[He] said that he knew all about photography, that he had
done a lot of work in photography himself, that the small picture was a reduced picture of the
large picture, and had been made by some person unknown to him. He further stated that since
he had been photographed here at the City Hall and that people had been taking his picture while
being transferred from my office to the jail door that someone had been able to get a picture of his
face and that with that, they had made this picture. He told me that he understood photography
real well, and that in time, he would be able to show that it was not his picture, and that it
had been made by someone else.« (1) (Bolds added)
Two major features support this accusation. One is his size. According to various sources including the
autopsy report (2), Oswald was 5 feet 9 inches (175 cm) tall. The Warren Report states the rifle as 40.2
inches (102 cm) long (3). Let’s add one inch to Oswald’s height to account for his shoes – that makes him
70 inches (178 cm) high in the photographs. The 40.2-inch rifle would then be 57.4 per cent of Oswald’s
In the full-page reproduction on the cover of »Life« on February 21, 1964, Oswald’s height measures
12.75 inches (32.4 cm), the rifle 7.75 inches (19.7 cm) (4). That’s 61 %. If the rifle is actually 40.2 inches,
the man’s height should be 13.5 inches (34.3 cm) instead of 12.75. Alternatively, the rifle should be 7.3
inches (18.5 cm) – not 7.75! Thus
However, this is not conclusive. It presupposes the absence of distortions in the photograph. It may not
be significant or valid if the picture gives a false perspective. Much more significant is the failure of the
investigators and (FBI) experts to utilize comparative measurements of that sort in assessing the
authenticity of the photograph.
The second feature of the photograph is the inconsistency in the direction of the shadows. Commission
Exhibit CE 746-A clearly shows the shadow of the man’s body falling behind him and to his right whereas
the shadow under his nose falling in dead center and not to the right. CE 746-C – an enlarged section of
this photograph – confirms this. There, one can see even more clearly a triangle with the apex at the
middle of his upper lip.
The FBI attempted to demonstrate that the rifle was the 40.2-inch Carcano by having an agent pose with
the rifle in the same posture as Oswald and with the same direction of sunlight. Indeed, in the reenactment
photograph the shadow of the agent’s body falls behind him and to his right as it is in CE 746-
to the shadow under Oswald’s nose. But the agent’s face and head have been blacked out
completely (5). FBI Expert Shaneyfelt was asked to explain this: »I blanked out the head because it was
one of the employees of the FBI, and I felt it was desirable to blank out the head because it was not
It should be noted that in a re-enactment photograph taken in the backyard at the Neely Street address
by the Dallas Police, the face of the stand-in has not been blacked out, although it has no greater
pertinence than that of the FBI agent (7). (In that photograph no attempt was made to duplicate lightning.
Therefore it does not help us in evaluating the original photograph.)Sources: from the Warren Commission:(1) – WCR p. 608-609 (2) – CE 1981 (3) – WCR p. 81 (4) – Sylvia Meagher: Accessories after the fact, p. 208. A (5) – CE 748 (6) – WCH IV, p. 281 (7) – CE 712
Today we embarked on our last DBQ of the Year our FINAL PAPER DUE NEXT FRIDAY. WE WILL BE WORKING ON THE ASSASSINATION OF JFK: WHO IS RESPONSIBLE
Students received document A in class today. TheAssassinationofJFK (1)-1jayerv
Students will look at three documents and two documentaries in order to write their final Essay using evidence and information to construct their arguments.
We looked at the Zapruder film to ease students in emotionally to realize that this did happen and the Warren Report that followed still leaves room for discovery of “THE TRUTH”.
The above link will take you to the Requirements of the Project. To inspire our young dreamers I have attached to motivational video clips. One is to help them with presentation and the other is to show what people are doing in this world currently. Enjoy!
