This talk by Dr. Gary Aguilar is part of the online conference The National-Security State and the Kennedy Administration.
Despite having been repeatedly reinvestigated by well-credentialed, official experts, JFK’s medical and autopsy evidence continues to be a source of endless confusion and controversy, now more than 50 years after Kennedy’s murder. The reasons for that confusion have as much to do with the shoddy nature of JFK’s original autopsy as they do with the surprisingly shoddy nature of subsequent reinvestigations. This presentation will explore in a nontechnical manner the myriad errors made during JFK’s original autopsy, as well as the remarkably consistent pattern of errors in subsequent reexaminations that evidence. What the author found to be most remarkable is that the pattern of errors uniformly and consistently were made in a manner that supported Lee Harvey Oswald’s guilt.
