In the Thunder's Mouth edition of his book, Rush To Judgment, on page 129,
Mark Lane makes the following statement in discussing the expert shooting
tests that the Warren Commission conducted using Oswald's rifle:
No one who has read this far will be surprised to hear that the Commission
concluded that *the probability of hitting the targets* was *very high*.
This probability remained *very high* in spite of the fact that not one of
the three experts was able to strike the head or neck of the target even
To support the latter part of this statement, Lane footnotes to the WC
volumes, XVII 261-262.
And what does XVII, 261-262 show?:
It shows two of the targets used in the tests AND showing hits to the
head! Lane's statement [emphasis added] that NOT ONE OF THE THREE EXPERTS
WAS ABLE TO STRIKE THE HEAD OR NECK OF THE TARGET EVEN ONCE must be one of
the most BLATANT lies ever in JFK assassination research!
Case closed on whether Mark Lane lied in Rush To Judgment or not!
X marks the spot that shows that he did.
*...NOT ONE of the three experts was able to strike the head or the
neck of the target EVEN ONCE.* (Emphasis added).
Mark Lane, Rush to Judgment, page 129, footnoted as: XVII 261-262.
And yet here IS WC XVII 261-262, showing hits to the head...
X marks the spot where Mark Lane lied!
