I once herad a very simple point made by an expert military-trained sniper, and which is largely overlooked by most analysts of the Kennedy murder.

It is actually very difficult, verging on impossible, to track a moving target with a telecopic gun-sight - anyone who owns even an air-rilfe with such a sight can confirm it. It has the effect of not only magnifying the target, but also any movement of the target, and of movement of the gun itself.

It's a *fact* that at the range Oswald supposedly scored 2 virtual bullseyes in 3 shots, using a a cheap hunting rifle with *telescopic* sight, he would have to had to 'lead' Kennedy's head by nearly 2 feet. Impossible, or a miracle.

In fact 'Saul', the alleged trigger-man who got the final 'head-shot', confirmed to Hugh McDonald, writer of a definitve, now unobtainable (surprise!), book called "Appointment In Dallas", confirmed that the killers used open sights, as any competetent marksman would under the conditions they knew they would be operating.

ciao,
Rainer.
