Yet MORE evidence of Mark Lane outrightly LYING in his book, Rush To
Judgment has been found. This is from page 44 of the Thunder's Mouth
edition of the book:
There is some evidence to suggest that one or more shots may have been
fired from the Book Depository, as the Warren Commission maintained.
It is considerably less compelling than the evidence suggesting that
shots came from behind the fence.
The evidence of a TSBD shooter is CONSIDERABLY LESS COMPELLING than
the evidence suggesting a Grassy Knoll shooter?!!
What planet was Lane on when he wrote THAT?!!
Let's see now, evidence suggesting a TSBD shooter includes several
people seeing either a rifleman in the window, or the rifle being
pulled back inside after the shooting; a man one floor below who heard
three shells hitting the floor above him as the shots were fired;
three recovered shells at the window the shooter was seen in, tying
with three shots as heard by the majority of ear witnesses; a rifle
recovered from the floor the man was seen shooting from; recovered
bullet fragments from the car that was being shot upon that matched
the recovered rifle to the exclusion of all other weapons; a long bag
recovered near the window in question with fingerprints on it that
matched those on the rifle; a trail of evidence showing that the rifle
belonged to an employee of the TSBD; evidence that the employee had
brought a long package into the TSBD that morning; evidence that this
same employee had broken his normal pattern and gone out to retrieve
something from where his wife was living the previous evening;
evidence from his wife that this was a rifle; evidence from his wife
that this man had previously tried to shoot a public figure with this
rifle; evidence that this man was a publicly avowed Marxist; evidence
that this man was a former defector to the Soviet Union; evidence that
this man was diametrically opposed to President Kennedy's policy on
Cuba etc etc.
And the CONSIDERABLY MORE COMPELLING evidence of a Knoll shooter is
what? Someone saw some steam but maybe it was smoke from a policeman's
motorcycle? Someone thought they smelled gunsmoke in the carpark and
someone else thought they did all the way to Parkland Hospital? LOL!
CASE CLOSED on whether Mark Lane ever lied in his book, Rush To
This is simply YET ANOTHER example of him doing just that.
*...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!
