New York Times covers this material in the paper today. Very high quality for CT.
Play the lecture video. At 18:15 of 20 minutes you get Zapruder's home movie with audio background, depicting the JFK assassination. Four rifle shots, not three. Kennedy's head driven backward with bone and blood sprayed to the left rear of the limousine. Motorcycle officer statements that match up.
First-rate forensic engineering is applied to clarify what is happening on the Zapruder video frames and a Dallas audio tape. The speaker in the video is Josiah “Tink” Thompson. Yale educated. Covered the Kennedy assassination for "Life" magazine in 1963. Knows how to think and how to value professional forensic engineering.
The video runs about 20 minutes. Not boring. And it gets really hot at that 18:15 mark. By then you are ready to see everything come together.
NY Times has a story up today on this. They run a promo video on a film about Thompson's discoveries. NY Times is a day early, too.
What makes for a knock out punch is a synchronization of the Zapruder film with audio from a Dallas police Dictaphone belt. This gives four (4) distinct shots including echo analysis with two of the shots very close together.
Motorcycle officer testimony from 1963 gets new photographic support. There's organic debris blasted out of the limousine. We get new info on where the blast went. And it wasn't forward.
There is no call for unsupported CT. There's none of that here. Really.
But maybe it is important to know that damn near anything in America can be hidden. Covered up. America didn't have a Manning or a Snowden in the right place in 1963.
Details and open questions below the muffin.

The YouTube vid is better.
Thompson's got the four (4) assassination shots when he got the sync done for the Zapruder film and the audio track. You see it on the video toward the last section.
Takes a while to prepare you for what you're looking at. There's a lot here:
-- Trace the spray patterns on Frame #313 for bone and other fragments coming away from Kennedy's head.
-- Put away the earlier analysis saying Kennedy's head moved forward ("2.3 inches in 1/18th of a second.") That was incorrect -- a panning effect that was introduced when Zapruder jerked his camera.
-- Check the Dallas police audio tape to see if the interevent timings for rifle fire match up with the visual evidence in the Zapruder film's separate frames.
-- Present the results of echo analysis from that audio tape -- an old Dictabelt -- to identify locations for rifle shots.
-- Consider other photographs of the site taken that morning as the assassination happened.
Thompson developed photographic evidence showing that two police officers on motorcycles riding on Kennedy's limo's "8" were hit with debris from the head shot. They had claimed it at the time, but were ignored.
Errol Morris has put Thompson's work into a film. "November 22, 1963." The video on YouTube has the core of what he's found, presented quickly.
And yes, personally, I never believed that the shooting pattern alleged to have been done by Oswald was plausible. You learn about getting off second shots from hunting as a kid. Your best shot is going to be the first shot; never, ever the third shot of such a rapid fire sequence.
What else had happened with assassinations ? Before Kennedy?
"Doves have come home to roost" over the 3-million piasters/$42000 paid to kill the Diem brothers ???
Why not? But that's a conjecture. Way above our pay grades. And for that, there's no new evidence. I await my new CT Overlords -- 9/11 amd 11/22 deserve special handling for schemes and wack-a-doodle takes on evidence.
