Undeniable Untruths !!!,
This review is from: Undeniable Truths: The Clear and Simple Facts Surrounding the Murder of President John F. Kennedy (Paperback)
I knew by page 11 that I would be shaking my head with frustration throughout as even within the first few pages I was confronted with basic errors and ill-informed judgment. Having completed the book, my impression is that the author is well intentioned, but where on earth is he getting his facts from.....?
Rather than writing a lengthy discourse on the book, I will just simply highlight some errors which are thoroughly misleading:-
Quoting author Jesse Ventura.....(surely one of the most unreliable commentators on the JFK case.....I would certainly urge anybody reading around the JFK case to take anything Ventura says with a grain of salt).
"Numerous bullet fragments were found inside the president's limo; some were standard ammo, others were apparently from frangible bullets"
What a piece of fiction - I have over 400 books on the JFK case and I have to my best recollection NEVER read this before (I don't have the Ventura book). Two pieces of bullet CE567 and CE569 were recovered from the foot well area of the drivers seat. A few minute fragments were found, but that is all. NO pieces of frangible bullets were found whatsoever. CE567 and CE569 were ballistically matched to Oswald's rifle.
"they took more fragments out of the governor's wrist than was missing from the magic bullet"
This is pure speculation on the part of the author and almost certainly an untruth. Several minute splinters of bullet were removed from the wrist during surgery - the thickness of a postage stamp. The weight of the fragments remaining in Connally is of course unknown, but X rays showed them to be microscopic.
"it is strange that the Secret Service agents in the front seat had no blood on them, nor were the back of their seats covered or sprayed with brain and blood matter"
In fact the backs of the seats and those of the Connally's were indeed covered in blood and the agents had blood stains on their suits and shirt collars. The vast majority of blood and matter was in fact propelled forwards, forwards and upwards, forwards and downwards in relation to the the rear of JFK's head. Google - "high contrast black and white Zapruder frame 313" and you will have your answer. Some matter did indeed travel rearward striking outrider Officer Hargis and a piece of brain ended up on the trunk. Blood was also found on the inside and outside of the windshield, but the author is either ignorant of these facts or leaves them out on purpose.
"The official pictures of President Kennedy's autopsy are evidence that the head shot could not have come from behind"
This is complete nonsense, to the contrary the pictures show a bullet entry wound in the rear of the head in the EOP region and an avulsed wound above the ear extending somewhat to the parietal and temporal bones. Exactly where the wound appears in the Zapruder film.
Page 8 the head shot from this location (TSBD) would have blown the front of the presidents head into the front seat of the car . There would have been major damage to his face"
Does the author advise the reader here that there was a bullet entry wound in the back of the head...? No. Does the author advise the reader of what is happening during the impact and exit of the fatal bullet. No.
The bullet strikes the rear of the head at approx. 2000 ft per second and exits in the area of the right temple fragmenting as it does so, the large "exit wound" above the ear is caused by the following shock wave and NOT the bullet itself directly. The reason why the exit wound is to the side of the bullet's path is because the pressure forces the skull bones to fracture along their weakest points - where the bones fused (fissures) during embryonic and early childhood development.
One could also reasonably argue that the same could have happened had the bullet been fired from the opposite direction - ie in the case of a head wound, an exit wound will not necessarily be opposite the entry wound - the author surely should know this given his experience?
"When the first shots went off (note "shots" - my comment) it would have been impossible for the shooter to have seen anyone in the vehicle"
This statement is simply untrue because it cannot be determined with certainty when the first shot was fired....we know that TWO shots were fired at JFK at Zapruder frames 222 (or within frames 220 to 222) and 313 - some 5.2 seconds apart and we know the location of the limousine at those points - all the occupants of the limousine were VISIBLE from the TSBD 6th floor window. The shot at approx Z222 could have been the first and from 6th floor window the targets were indeed visible.
Further more in respect of the missed shot (if there was indeed one) it is simply NOT KNOWN if it was fired between the two shots that hit or before. If the missed shot were fired earlier - as some witnesses believed, it was most likely fired around Z160 and due to the fact that it missed the limousine completely, probably struck a branch of the oak tree or the street sign or traffic light - we simply do not know. It seems reasonable to suggest that it would seem unlikely that if the missed shot were fired between the two that struck, it would completely miss the car...
Additionally it is entirely reasonable to consider it more likely that an assassin who had a window of some ten seconds to fire down into Elm St would attempt to fire three shots so quickly. Of course the author does not even advise the reader of these possibilities. The author merely conjures up his preferred scenario and presents it as fact.
On page 154 you state:-
"he (Oswald) would have had to have hit a moving target through trees and thick foliage. It was an impossible shot."
There were no trees or foliage blocking the view from the TSBD 6th floor window during the time frame between Z210 and Z313 - the non fatal shot striking Kennedy at approx Z222.
There was foliage blocking the view from the 6th floor window shortly after the turn for a few seconds with a break at Z186.
So there was in fact NOTHING in the way between the 6th floor window and JFK when the two shots were fired. This fact I am afraid contradicts your statement in the book - to my knowledge no author writing about the case has made this factual error regarding the visibility of the target during the shooting of JFK from the moment he was struck in the back to the fatal shot - this reflects very poorly on the research and interpretation of known facts and simply casts doubt on the credibility of the book in general.
"Just running across the floor , burying the rifle in a row of boxes, and then running to the stairwell would have taken him at least one minute, never mind running down all those flights of stairs....."
This is just blatant misinformation. Firstly the rifle was not "buried" it was simply dropped between a pair of boxes on one side and one other box on the other - perhaps a box placed on top loosely - this could all have been done in a few seconds and ref the totals for timing the flight and descend to the second floor:-
It takes approx. 50 seconds to do the following:-
Pause after the "last shot" (as per witness Howard Brennan on the street)
Exit the snipers layer
Walk across the 6th floor diagonally to the stair well, pausing to drop the rifle between two boxes.
The above takes approximately 25 seconds
To then descend the 88 steps to the 2nd floor lunch room takes another 25 seconds approx. I know this because I did this in 1983, timed by a Dallas police liaison officer who assisted me with my research for the masters thesis on the assassination. In fact if you "skip-run" down the stairs, you can make the journey in 45 seconds. I was around 24 at the time and of slight build and reasonably fit.
One of the History or Discovery channels re enacted the movement with a 24 year old marine - 5ft 9in and it took 48 seconds. Even if it took the assassin a minute to make this flight it is probably still possible to get within the second floor lunch room and beat Truly and Baker to it even if Baker arrives just over a minute after the last shot - see also below for next page.
"and then there were dozens and dozens of workers running through the building or down the stairs."
No there were not!.......there were two young female workers who ran from their 4th floor window viewpoint out to the front entrance after the shots. No others were running down the stairs. In fact no worker saw any stranger running down the stairs nor Oswald - yet the elevators were on the ground floor - but whoever shot JFK descended that one set of stairs.
No workers were on the 6th floor either - Bonnie Ray Williams was the last to leave the 6th floor around 1215. So the authors statement regarding dozens of people running within the building is either just plain deception lie or born out of ignorance.
"Officer Baker was in that building within seconds of the shooting and he encountered Oswald almost immediately"
This is categorically untrue. Baker arrived at the 2nd floor lunch room within approximately 60 and 90 seconds of the shots. Period.
Author Ed Souza also advises the reader that Oswald was eating his lunch when confronted by Officer Baker, this again is not true, Oswald was standing in the doorway of the 2nd floor lunch room, probably drinking a coke - though this cannot be confirmed as a fact.
Naturally one must conclude that the Baker / Oswald encounter was tight on time, but there WAS sufficient time - just - and Oswald we can assume almost to a certainty if he did shoot JFK, would have moved very quickly indeed.
There are I am afraid many more errors in the book and additionally wayward opinion presented as fact. Ironically the author has a habit of referencing two of the most outrageous books on the JFK case - David Lifton's "Best Evidence" (which is brilliantly written - it's simply a work of fiction) and Orlando Martin's "Analysis of a Shooting" - the latter of which is in this reviewers opinion a contender for possibly the worst book on the JFK case written to date.
It is with some dismay that one resorts to writing such a damning review of a book, given no doubt the effort that has been put into it, but any author naturally opens themselves up to criticism on publication, especially on such a contentious subject as the JFK assassination.
The author states in fairness in the introduction that he does not intend his book to be detailed and aims only to provide an introduction and overview of the case. That may have been the aim, but it falls well short of proving any kind of balanced and well reasoned overview, it is I sense on the whole well meaning, but it does not give an accurate picture of the facts in the case. I would suggest if you read one book on the JFK case, it must be Peter Knight "The Kennedy Assassination" approx. 200 pages, 2008. A brilliant and scholarly work, easy to read and somewhat neutral and one of the "go to" books on the case. I would also highly recommend Mel Aytons's new book "Beyond Reasonable Doubt" and the excellent "Phantom Shot" by Mike Majerus - in this reviewers opinion also one of the finest books written to date on the assassination. For the pro conspiracy viewpoint, Anthony Summers "Not in your Lifetime" is probably the best start.
One minor point - Ed Souza either states or quotes that some 2000 books have been written on the JFK assassination. This is not actually accurate, the number of books specifically about the assassination and Lee Harvey Oswald is closer to 500 excluding recent e books that are not available in print. Of these approximately 80% are pro conspiracy. Very few are neutral - Peter Knight probably comes the closest.

Dear Mr. Collins, after seeing your critical review of my book I wanted to sit down with a hot cup of tea and make some comments. First off I want to thank you for purchasing my book even though you don't agree with its many points. I also want to thank you for your review, as my family, friends and students know and I am very open to criticisms and other view-points- however as I stated in chapter 14 of my book, which is a very critical overview of Bill O'Reilly's book "Killing Kennedy", I will speak the truth however it is received by others and I will do here as well on your points you brought up.
Clearly I must first state that my book is not meant to appease everyone on this subject; there are those who look at this assassination in almost a religious way, what I mean by that is even if JFK came back from the dead and spoke to them personally, and provided them with all the evidence they desired for a conspiracy in his murder, they would still not concede the true facts in this case, they would be part of the lone assassin crew, there is simply no convincing them. Who I wrote this book for are those opened minded people who really want to know what the real facts were, not what the Warren Commission told them, or others who have held back the facts of this case for decades.
I know for the sake of space you said you would not make your critique to long, and that goes for my comments here as well, but I did notice that you failed to bring up or critique me on many of the indisputable points, such as the dozens of witnesses who saw the shooters on the grassy knoll, the fact that every single doctor(without exception) said the head wound in the rear of his head was an exit wound, and that all of them who saw the president's throat wound said clearly and unequivocally that it was an entrance wound, pointing of course to the fact that he was hit from the front.
Mr. Collins, I really think you are falling prey to the false and corrupted information, and evidence that was originally put out by the WC - such as the claim of a bullet hole which you said was seen in the original autopsy photos, well this is the same location where ALL of the medical personal said was completely blown out and the skull was missing there. Also did you know that 3 of the doctors who saw the president's wounds looked at the photo you are referring to and stated for the record that the photo is fake, a complete forgery clear and simple, totally and completely contrary to what they saw that day, and this is on the record? I think you are the one who needs to check your facts sir- there are almost 300 footnotes and over one hundred references in my book. There is an old saying, "garbage in, garbage out", this is the case if you look at the distorted and false information that the WC claimed were facts, heck even the 2nd official investigation was clear that there was a conspiracy, and I suggest as I state in the book, that if you read the ARRB, the information is there sir, how about the fact that there was no magic bullet?? Do you care to debate on that point too? If you do you will have to take on the FBI as well because their agents are the ones who stated for the record that the back wound to JFK NEVER exited the body, and that another bullet went missing after the autopsy, here is a segment in case you missed it, "Agent O'Neil was one of two FBI officials who were present during the president's autopsy. O'Neil made some critical notes during the procedure; he believed there appeared to have been surgery to the head prior to the president's autopsy. David Lifton, in his book and documentary, Best Evidence, made some incredible statements regarding this fact. Also, O'Neil made note that there was a missile-a bullet-removed from the president's body. This missile has never been located and could prove not only that there was a second shooter but many other facts as well, which is why I am sure it remains missing. Think about this: if it had been from the Oswald rie, it would have shown up in the Warren Report to bolster their case". Am I correct? No offense sir, you are entitled to your opinion, but please don't tell me that I do not know the facts in this case, that is completely and totally incorrect, I have spent over 35 years studying this subject and have many years in law enforcement and investigations, the facts are there, you might just not want to believe them. Oh also how you can say that the book Best Evidence is false and discredited information stuns me, that is another CLEAR indication that you simply refuse to expect the clear facts, the REAL facts of this case.

Dear Mr. David Von Pein, my first question to you sir is have you read the book? and how much research have you done on this subject? My 2nd point is even if you do not agree with the premise of the book I can understand that, but to insult me by stating that it was an awful publication clearly points to your lack of intelligence and understanding of not just about this case, but what a piece of researched and documented academic writing looks like- although Mr. Collins was indeed critical of some of my points in the book, he did not insult my book as you did, which is why your received this response.

I would accept invariably giving the one star for the effort of writing and research, but I took from reading the book, that the author is well intentioned. I also sometimes feel that just panning a book can be harsh in terms of the authors reward.

Thank your for your response to my review of your book. I can appreciate the effort that goes into publication as I have been writing a book on the same subject for some ten years now and started researching the subject in 1980.
From your comments generally I have the impression that your mind was set out in the first place that a conspiracy existed and it is my opinion that in these circumstances, one will then tend to perhaps accept readily many of the non established facts of the case. I know this because I myself believed in a conspiracy for some years. Some examples and a few comments below:-
You mention "surgery to the head area" and you refer to the so called "missing autopsy bullet". But there is no evidence for such as you probably know. These are simply two examples of assassination folklore. If there was indeed a bullet removed - well over 20 people and their associates kept this a secret to their grave.
You also mention the witnesses to the "grassy knoll shot" and state there were dozens of them....
To quote,"such as the dozens of witnesses who saw the shooters on the grassy knoll"
This is an interesting statement because it is actually untrue and is rather misleading to put it mildly. There were indeed dozens of people who HEARD shots and thought they came from the knoll area, but dozens did not SEE a shooter as you claim.
Gordon Arnold standing on or by the steps below the knoll thought he felt a bullet pass over him from the knoll.
Ed Hoffman claimed he saw a gunman from his freeway vantage point (well behind the stockade fence on the knoll - approx 50 yards away.
Both of the above came forward some 20 years after the assassination for the UK Central TV documentary by Nigel Turner.
Beverly Oliver claims she was standing on the grass south of Elm and visible in the Z film (she claims to be the so called scarf wearing babushka lady) and many years later said she thought she saw a rifle flash in the bushes above the picket fence. She said nothing of the sort in the days and weeks after the assassination.
Sam Holland from his vantage point in the rail yard signal box felt he saw "something out of the ordinary" at the moment of the shots....
That I am afraid is it. That is FOUR people who claim to have seen the "GK gunman".....Mary Moorman also at a push....but again it took her 25 years to come up with her comment that she might have seen something.
As for your comments about being open minded....well I have read far, far, far more books on conspiracy than on the so called lone nut argument. Largely of course because there are many more pro conspiracy books on the subject.
Your comments about the time you have taken on the JFK case and you experience are well taken, but I have a hunch you are suggesting your are somehow better placed than I to make comment on the case (I could be wrong). Its an interesting one because - something I have learnt over the years, is you can never be sure about the experience of even amateur researchers simply from on line comments when it comes to the JFK assassination - unless they come out and let you know.....
I have been quite fortunate - I undertook a masters degree on the assassination in the early 80s at Cambridge in England, I spent many months in Dallas and New Orleans conducting research and met and interviewed many people connected to the case including some twenty or so witnesses to the assassination and retired DPD officials and medical staff who worked at Parkland that day in November 1963. People who worked for Jim Garrison in New Orleans and people who worked with or knew Oswald. A few years later I ended up as a lowly researcher assisting Tippit expert Larry Harris in Dallas for "The Men Who Killed Kennedy" and I have undertaken research for the BBC on the assassination. These days, I still read around the subject - hence your book arrived this week - I think it stands with around 400 other or thereabouts on this bottomless pit of a subject. I occasionally give guest lectures on the assassination here in the UK at various universities. I will share with you my book list - which I will post separately - as it is a good source of data for any author or researcher. I'll leave it on here for a few days then I will remove it.
Lastly, you state:-
"how you can say that the book Best Evidence is false and discredited information stuns me, that is another CLEAR indication that you simply refuse to expect the clear facts"
"Best Evidence" is a very well written book, but it is pure fiction and suggesting that I refuse to expect (do you mean accept) the clear facts is rather judgemental as you know me not from Adam. I am completely open to a conspiracy, I would find it far more interesting, but the facts overwhelmingly support the contention that Oswald acted alone or that some one else fired his gun and disappeared.
As a former law enforcement officer, I can only assume you have worked with forensic pathologists - in which case I am surprised that you would even go near Lifton's way out theory of body alteration. I worked with some 5 or 6 pathologists during my work on the case in the 80s and without exception they stated that such wound alteration was surgically impossible. To remove tissue that showed a bullet struck the head from the front and fool the three autopsy surgeons as Lifton suggests is ludicrous.
Lifton's theory is generally NOT accepted in the research community and rightly so.
Curiously, Lifton offered me a "job" by letter of assisting his researcher on matters concerning the 6th floor "materials" when I was a graduate student back in the 80s, unpaid and as part of my thesis, but I simply could not afford it. I regret not taking him up on the matter - it would have been shall we say "interesting"....
Your assertion that......
"did you know that 3 of the doctors who saw the president's wounds looked at the photo you are referring to and stated for the record that the photo is fake, a complete forgery clear and simple, totally and completely contrary to what they saw that day, and this is on the record?"
What I do know and what I think you are referring to is that in 1988 SIX of the Dallas doctors were invited to the National Archives to view the actual autopsy photographs as part of the PBS NOVA documentary of the JFK assassination. ALL but one - Robert McClelland accepted that the photos showed the head as it appeared in Dallas.
Can you cite for the contention that THREE Dallas doctors said the photos were faked...? It is certainly not true that they said that of the actual original pictures in the archives, because 5 of 6 vouched for their authenticity. (it could even have been 6 out of 7).
And what record? Are you referring to the HSCA....?
As for your comment about the anterior neck wound - the doctors did NOT all say it was an entry, some said they thought it could be an entry or an exit. Only 2 or possibly 3 doctors saw the neck wound before the trach was made. Had the neck wound been an entry there would have been 2 non transiting bullets in the body - a remote possibility - clandestine bullet removal and at least 5 shots - heard by less than 5 people of the approx 400 or so who were in the plaza.......
"No offense sir, you are entitled to your opinion, but please don't tell me that I do not know the facts in this case, that is completely and totally incorrect"
It is blatantly correct that you do NOT know all the facts though isn't it. You have demonstrated that clearly with your simple stats on the number of people who "saw" a GK gunman...!!! And that is just for a start - your book is full of incorrect "facts" and I mean that with all due respect to your intentions which I am sure were well meant in introducing people to the subject, but when it comes to the informed research community you'll need to do some editing if you want your book to be judged as credible.
I doubt anyone any way could possibly know ALL the facts in this case anyway - that is a ludicrous claim - come on! We could put that down to enthusiasm for the case on your part perhaps....
I am sure your efforts are well intentioned, but I do not understand - as like so many of your fellow pro conspiracy believers - why you make things up........there were 2 possibly 3 girls on the TSBD stairs just after the shots - not dozens of people racing around and FOUR maybe FIVE people believe they saw the "GK gunman".....NOT dozens.
I will not of course change your mind on this subject nor you, I, but do read Peter Knight's "The Kennedy Assassination" - a fine and rather neutral work.

In your note to David von Pein, you ask, of David, "how much research have you done on this subject?"
Well you will have the JFK assassination community laughing off their chairs with that one and in doing so clearly demonstrate that your background research on the case must have been rather limited.
That is a bit like meeting Jack Nicklaus and asking him if he ever played golf.........
Dave is probably far too modest to let you know, but I can reliably inform you, he is one of the leading and perhaps the foremost of the JFK assassination researchers and experts on our little blue planet. (forgive me Dave, I could not resist this).
You have to laugh, is that what you call a faux pass...?

FAO Ed Souza,
You may find this book collection list of some use. Some books are listed more than once if they have been updated - eg paperbacks may have a few extras.
They are listed by authors first name. The list is not fully updated - as you will see I have not added yours as yet for example. It is not comprehensive either, missing a few I am sure and its difficult to keep up with the 2013 & 2014 titles. It also getting to the stage now where I feel its becoming a waste of money because really there has been nothing new at all and what is "new" is usually just fiction - with due respect!
Perhaps "Phantom Shot" came up with something new, if author Mike Majerus is right - although the 2 shot only theory has been aired before, but IMO not nearly as compellingly as in that particular book.
If you would prefer the original Excel spread sheet, let me know, happy to oblige.
Just one small point even having read all of these books, some many times, I would never make the claim I knew "every fact" of the case as you did Ed! To the contrary I would very much say that I have no doubt forgotten more about the case than I could recall at any moment in time.

Dear David- first of all you received the previous comment from me as I said because you insulted me by insulting my book- I think there may have been a more professional way to make your comments much Like Mr. Collins did, just because we see things from a different perspective does not mean we should make cruel comments about each other's work. As I said I am an opened minded individual but I am also a former law enforcement officer and a private investigator that looks to the facts of any case, not just this one. When I speculate I say so in the book clearly, there are pages and pages of information which are backed up by references, witness statements, and solid facts- heck I even quote the Warren Commission over and over- ,isn't that your Holy Bible on the subject (joking of course)? If so I take so many points from that report, including many of the doctor's and law enforcement interviews, it's all there in black and white, including the true and actual locations of JFK's wounds based on statements and facts, and the fact that Dallas Police actually caught some of the conspirators who identified themselves as Secret Service agents all over the crime scene?
But with regards to Oswald in the SBD I think I make my points vividly clear that Oswald was seen 10 minutes before the shooting in the lunch room and maybe 90 seconds after in the exact same spot by a police officer and the building manager. Any other points about Oswald's movements in that building during the 10 or so minutes between those times- are indeed all speculation, by anyone period, there is no video of his movements or witnesses that can help us there. I also point out as an example that Bill O'Reilly states, that Oswald was sitting up there waiting for the motorcade to come by and contemplating the murder, really? Who saw Oswald up there? Where are the direct and detailed witness statements pointing to this fact that lee Oswald was seen in the window with a rifle in his hands firing that weapon- clearly no one saw him in the window or the Commission would have made that point perfectly clear?(except of course for one wit who's statements are cloudy at best) Even Chief Curry said that no one could make a positive ID on the supposed shooter; it's all in his own book- what the Chief also says by the way that even he did not know that the motorcade route was changed until that morning, and was the police chief.
We could go on and on but I am sure even you would admit that the thousands of points made in my book cannot all be explained away- true?? I would hope you would agree with that point.

Hi Mr. Collins once again thank you for your comments, truly they are welcomed, I will be commenting on your statements here, shortly, it pretty obvious that we will need to agree to disagree on most of the points in this case which exactly why I wrote this book, to bring my points to life and let people judge for themselves who's points they will believe, which evidence is valid and I state that in my book- which is why am sure you are working on your book as well correct?- and I wish you the best on that endevoer; I will be back with you soon- All the best- Ed Souza
