§902 Trilogy of the case of JFK (1) (1963.11.22): VI-37.

The old work shall be accomplished,
From the roof shall fall upon the great one an evil-ruin:
They shall accuse the innocent of having caused the death:
The culprit hidden. A copse in the mizzle.

(L’œuvre ancienne se parachevera,
Du toict cherra sur le grand mal ruyne:
Innocent faict mort on accusera:
Nocent caiché. taillis à la bruyne.)

NOTES: The trilogy, as to its general theme, was revealed for the first time by V. Ionescu (1987, p.430-440), his interpretations concerning the details of the verses staying largely insufficient and his “Latinism” in interpretation being too extravagant to follow the natural nuances of French itself of Nostradamus. For example, an expression ‘l’avare mere (the avaricious mother)’ (§903, VIII-73), the most important of the key words in our trilogy, is for him ‘avara meretrix (avaricious prostitute)’ in Latin, indicating the Russian communism according to him, but the Latin etymology of ‘mere (= mère)’ is ‘māter’, on the other hand that of ‘meretrix’ is ‘mereō (to receive as a pay for a service)’. Then, “meretrīx: originally ‘a woman who gains a salary, is payed. This word is specialized in an erotic use.’” (Ernout & Meillet), his linguistic speculation being of little use. Cf. §903, VIII-73.

The old work shall be accomplished: The fundamental error of Ionescu consists in his frame of analysis that granted a Russian communist complot underlying the murder of the President of the United States John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963, in Dealey Plaza, Dallas, Texas. This case was most probably of the caracter of American intestine confrontation caused by the New Frontier Policy of the Kennedy administration starting in 1961. Therefore, the anti-New-Frontier parties in USA are to be supposed to be those who accomplished the old work of this quatrain.

The old work: This is supposedly the project of eliminating Fidel Castro of Cuba designed by CIA under A. Dulles and promoted by the Vice-president R. Nixon of the preceding administration (1953-1961) of D. Eisenhower. And the project mutatis mutandis was employed and executed in their own country to eliminate their own President Kennedy (cf. Ochiai, 1979, p. 224-237, p.250-252; 2013, p.301-317, p.337-339).

From the roof shall fall upon the great one an evil-ruin: They shall accuse the innocent of having caused the death: The culprit hidden. A copse in the mizzle: " The assassination of President John F Kennedy on 22 November, 1963. Some of the gunshots undoubtedly came from roof level, and the accused assassin did not live [sic] long enough to stand trial. Even today, the true identity of the killer is as hidden in the mist as ever it was." (Halley, 1999, p.182).

They: The Warren Commission of the Johnson government.

The innocent: Lee Harvey Oswald (1939-1963), accused wrong of the murder of JFK by the Warren Commission. It is remarquable that the French Perfect Seer of the 16th century declares him NON-GUILTY, which is approved according to the accumulated results of many of the penetrating researchers on the case against the formal report of the government. Oswald himself declared, having been arrested, that he did not shoot anyone and he was a patsy (cf. Ochiai, 1979, p.57-101; 2013,p.87-144).

Nocent: s.m. Coupable (Culprit) (Godefroy).

The culprit hidden: The culprits were designed to flee safe after their work done under the protection prepared by FBI under J. Hoover, another authority coupled with CIA (cf. Ochiai, 1979, p.236-237; 2013,p.316-317). Every passion for finding out an image of an assassin there (in the copse) in the relevant photographs was in vain (cf. Trask, 1994, p.257).

A copse: A small group of relatively small trees of the north grassy knoll of Dealey Plaza(cf. Trask, 1994, p.208: Bond’s first post-assassination photo; p.235: Moorman’s Photo #5; p.350: Dealey Plaza the afternoon of November 22, 1963).

In the mizzle: Nostradamus’ figure of expressing the unsolvable or undetectable situation of a matter (cf. V-35: Soubz la bruine, under the mizzle: VI-27: par les bruynes, amidst the drizzles).

The culprit hidden. A copse in the mizzle: The two shots to the President came from the small forest of the grassy knoll (copse), the snipers left unknown to us (hidden in the mizzle):

The throat shot: According to the frame 193 of the Zapruder film, the most famous and most valuable home movie filmed on the scene, President Kennedy was, just before riding into behind the Stemmons Freeway sign on the north side of Elm Street, waving his right hand up beside his face, the elbow on the top of the edge of the right side frame of the Presidential limousine, his left hand bent horizontally upon the belly about the diaphragm, towards the people standing near the sign on the north side of Elm Street, facing them in smiling. So his throat and chest were open to the public on his right.

According to the still photographs of the frames 194-204 of the Zapruder film (Wrone, 2013, p.120-121), this posture of the President can be seen till the frame 204 when his body beneath his upper throat was hidden by the road sign, his right hand up and waving yet.

Next moment his body beneath his chin was totally hidden behind the sign board, when should have come a sudden shot into his throat. Therefore, it seems to have come from the direction of the sign board, for the President was facing the people in front of the sign on his right.

Now, it is formally said that the “ frames 208 through 211 were destroyed and frame 212 badly damaged during Life’s processing.” (Wrone, 2013, p.182)

But it cannot be the case, for the authority (CIA through the Dallas office of the Secret Service) had already on the morning of November 23 kept in hand the Zapruder copy film from Mr. Zapruder himself before Life Magazine obtained four complete Zapruder films, the one original and its three copies made by Mr. Zapruder, who had all of them transferred to Life for $150,000.00 on 25 of November; Mr. Zapruder had initiatively offered the two copy films to the Secret Service office in Dallas for only the investigative use by the Government (cf. Wrone, id., p.26-31; p.279-286).

Now, the several frames were being cut off from the available copies of the Zapruder film for a long time as if the formal comment about them were true, and these 6 missing frames (x1, x2, x3, x4, x5 and x6) have been restored through Robert Groden’s cooperation by TV ASAHI, Inc., Tokyo, Japan, in one of its programs titled “ The greatest enigma of the 20th century: the assassination of President Kennedy/ the truth of its fortieth anniversary ” aired on October 11, 2003. (TV ASAHI says that its staffs became aware of the discrepancy between the sequence of the frames of the movie and the corresponding stream of the recorded sound of the Dallas Police Departement radio communication showing some lack of frames, and Mr. Groden says that he was permitted to copy the original film when he was working for the governmental needs in seventies and that his is the only perfect copy in the world, and one can see now on YOUTUBE some articles on the Zapruder film containing these original frames; e.g. The Undamaged Zapruder Film by Robert Harris (2008): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kq1PbgeBoQ4&feature=c4-overview-vl&list=PLD927FE61A099C96A).

The apparent reason why the authority (CIA & FBI), having checked thouroughly the Zapruder film (“The agents were especially interested in prints that showed the limousine just before it reached the sign, when it passed behind the sign, and immediately after it emerged from behind the sign. Each of the mounted prints had attached beneath it the time down to the split second” – Wrone, id., p.29), cut off those frames from it for the public use is that a few of them (x2, x3, x4, x5) have one or three small round spots like bullet holes [like the figure atop ] on the upper half of the sign board somehow incriminating another than the innocent patsy at the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository.

Some people say that those three spots are the bullet holes, but they aren’t, because the shot to the throat of JFK seems to be only one according to the sound record of the radio communication of Dallas Police Department. But, the three spots on the sign board are considered to be the three holes pierced by the three debris of the bullet shot to the President, it being quite natural that the bullet from a rifle could produce some debris in traveling through its rifled barrel. In a closer view, one can say that the smallest round hole was pierced first in the frame x2 followed by the same figure of x3, then in the frame x4 other two holes were made at the same time, the one larger than the first on its left side, and the other largest on the right side, the frame x5 imitating x4. They are most vaguely seen in the frame x6 because of the blur caused by the quick panning of the camera.

The sign board seems to be wooden, but an author notes “a metal two-legged Stemmons Freeway sign” (Trask, id., p.399). His “metal” may qualify only “two legs”. Anyhow, the board had a certain thickness and one can see the holes in relief in the daylight, like a cross section of an obliquely cut pipe (e.g. Figure 2 [this is not the real image from any of the frames x2 – x5]), which seemingly shows that the holes were made by the debris coming from the right from the viewpoint of Mr. Zapruder. (The frames 208 & 209 of the Zapruder film frame by frame by John Costella [Costella Combined Edit Frames (updated 2006) http://www.assassinationresearch.com/zfilm/ ] do not offer distinctively such images in relief.)

Figure 2:

One can say that it is just approximately at the moment of the first hole pierced on the sign board that the first shot to the President caught him on the throat and the shot came from the right of Mr. Zapruder filming the scene of assassination.


And the supposed sniper seems to have been located behind the picket fence in its eastern part under the foliage of the trees on the north grassy knoll just a little far behind and a little on the right of Mr. Zapruder filming on the pedestal of the west end of the north pergola (cf. Wrone, id., p.84-85: Map of Dealey Plaza by Katherine Guth). The ground level of the fence was a few feet higher than that of the pergola, but, Mr. Zapruder, suffering from vertigo, was standing on the four-foot-high pedestal with his office receptionist Marilyn Sitzman who had offered him to hold onto his coat to steady him, and his camera level seems to have been higher than that of the sight of the supposed sniper, which is somehow on the top line of the five-foot-high fence (Wrone, id., p.11); cf. Trask, id.,p.59; p.161: Betzner’s photo #3; p.333: Harry Cabluck’s second photo (The culprit hidden. A copse in the mizzle).


Then, the sniper could catch through his sight a direct vision of the head, throat and chest of the President just to the right of the road sign. And three of the debris of the first shot to the President casually hit the road sign at the same time.

In fact, in the Willis seventh slide taken moments before the President is hit (Trask, id., p.171) can bee seen the western half of the eastern part of the stockade fence commanding the President in the car just to the right of the road sign from the supposed sniper’s view, which is said to be corresponding to the frame 202 of the Zapruder film, where the Pesident is going to be hidden behind the sign (cf. Wrone, id., p.120-121).

N.B. The throat wound of the President was in reality an entry one nothwithstanding the pretended exit one of the Warren report: “The doctors at Parkland Hospital still insist that the throat wound was an entry wound; they did not see the back wound.” (Orchard, 2010-2011: Second Shot). And the Stemmons Freeway sign was removed immediately after the tragedy: “ The City of Dallas removed the Stemmons Freeway sign shortly after the assassination.” (Orchard, 2010-2011: The Shots in Dealey Plaza).

N.B. 2:
The debris of a bullet can be illustrated in the wound of the Governor of Texas Connally apart from the question of a bullet to the Governor:  “ But a close examination of Connally’s thigh wound – by Dr. Malcolm Perry on November 22 – revealed something less dramatic than an actual bullet wound. Although the Commission attorneys ignored his analysis and did not take his testimony on the thigh wound, but only on his treatment of JFK’s wounds, Perry would later tell Harold Weisberg that only a tiny flat lead flake had entered Connally’s thigh, penetrating the flesh about one-half inch and then traveling at the same level for three to three and one-half inches. The wound, he said, was so small it could not have been caused by any bullet, let alone the one the Commission said fell out of Connally’s thigh.” (Wrone, id., p.xi)

N.B. 3: If the throat shot (at Z207 of Roberdeau map [our frame x2 would be Z207+2=209]) came from the TSBD (6th floor eastern window), and its debris hit the Stemmons Freeway sign, the angle of the two lines of fire (that of the bullet and that of the debris) projected upon the horizontal plane is about 11.8 degrees (perhaps more than 15.0 degrees without projection), on the contrary the maximum angle of the two lines of fire with the grassy knoll hypothesis (the supposed sniper at the corner of the stockade fence) is about 4.6 degrees, which will be rather admittable to a value of elongation with the bullet and its own debris (I examined these data upon the basis of the detailed map of Dealey Plaza by Don Roberdeau (Copyright © 2010 by Don Roberdeau) cited in Orchard, 2010-2011).

But, Connally’s thigh wound may have been by a debris of an impacted bullet, and here is a ballistico-technical proof that a bullet leaving a rifle is able to have some debris of itself before reaching a target, probably produced by the propulsive detonation in the barrel, and make a smaller hole in the target beside a larger hole by the bullet itself. For example, Luke Haag and Mike Haag, firearms experts, conducted an experiment, to value the single bullet theory using a Carcano rifle in their own scheme, of testifying the stability and penetrating power of a Carcano bullet into one of the oldest ballistic test materials: pine boards. And the pine board first impacted by the bullet had two small holes like Figure 3 below, the larger one they declared to be the entry hole of the bullet, another smaller one they ignored utterly, but it seems to be pierced evidently by a debris of the bullet reaching the pine board at the same time as the bullet itself. Cf. PBS NOVA – Cold Case JFK (S41E07, Nov. 13 2013) by Randy Wen (2013/11/25): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4VLmPxFyk8, especially at the moments 25:47-28:20.

Figure 3:

1° (b): That the throat shot to the President came from his right hand is supported by the eyewitnesses as follows:
Roy Kellerman (Secret Service agent, in the front passenger seat of the Presidential limousine), March 9, 1964: “... and there is a report like a firecracker, pop. And I turned my head to the right because whatever this noise was I was sure that it came from the right and perhaps to the rear, and as I turned my head to the right to view whatever it was or to see whatever it was, I heard a voice from the back seat and I firmly beleave it was the President’s, ‘My God, I am hit’, and I turned around....” [Later:] (Mr. Specter: “You say that you turned to your right immediately after you heard a shot ?”) Mr. Kellerman: “Yes, sir.” (Mr. Specter: “What was the reason for your reacting to your right ?”) Mr. Kellerman: “That was the direction that I heard this noise, pop.” [Warren Commission testimony: 2H73, 74, 75, 94-95, 101] ” (Costella, 2007, p.43).

Dave Powers (Presidential aid; in the follow-up car), May 18, 1964: “Shortly thereafter the first shot went off and it sounded to me as if it were a firecracker, I noticed then that the President moved quite far to his left after the shot from the extreme right side where he had been sitting.” [Warren Commission affivadit: 7H473] ” (Costella, id., p.28).

In fact, the strong impact of the rifle bullet from his right hand into his throat made him dislocate himself from right to left in his seat in the car. This dynamics is true again as to the movement of the head of the President when he received the head shot, for it moved back leftward as it was leaning a little foreward leftward after the throat shot when the strong impact of the bullet from his front right took place in the upper right corner of his forehead.

Jean Newman (on the north side of Elm Street, near the Stemmons Freeway sign), November 22, 1963: “The motorcade had just passed me when I heard something that I thought was a firecracker at first, and the President had just passed me, because after he had just passed, there was a loud report, it just scared me, and I noticed that the President jumped, he sort of ducked his head down and I tought at the time that it probably scared him, too, just like it did me, because he flinched, like he jumped.” [Sheriff’s Department affivadit: 19H489] ” (Costella, id., p.45).

Jean Newman (on the north side of Elm Street, near the Stemmons Freeway sign), November 24, 1963: “A car carrying the President and other persons had just passed her when she heard a report and saw the President jump. She stated she assumed the report to be a firecracker and thought how ‘human’ the President was that he too would react by jumping at a sudden noise.” [FBI report: CE1433: 22H843] ” (Costella, id., p.46).

Charles Brehm (on south side of Elm Street, close to the President at the start of shooting), November 24, 1963: “When the President’s automobile was very close to him and he could see the President’s face very well, the President was seated, but was leaning forward when he stiffened perceptively at the same instant what appeared to be a rifle shot sounded.” [FBI report: CE1425: 22H837] ” (Costella, id., p.45-46).

Jack Franzen (on south side of Elm Street, near the Presidential limousine at the time of shots), November 22, 1963: “He noticed the men, who were presumed to be Secret Sevice Agents, riding in the car directly behind the President’s car, unloading from the car, some with firearms in their hands, and noticed police officers and those plain clothes men running up the grassy slope across Elm Street from his location and toward a wooded and bushy area located across Elm Street from him.” [FBI report: CE1428: 22H840] ” (Costella, id., p.94).

The head shot: According to the frames 315-335 of the Zapruder film, the glaring round mass of white light like a flexible baseball on the upper right corner of the forehead of the President lasting a few seconds after the explosion evidently shows the first impact point of the bullet there, the glaring light being a signal of the highest temperature around the head caused by the first strongest bullet impact upon a hard tissue of the skull, which proves that the shot came from his front right, probably from behind the picket fence in its western part under the dense foliage of the trees on the north grassy knoll, approximately 40 meters distant from the Preidential limousine and at the height of about 7 meters (The culprit hidden. A copse in the mizzle).

In addition to this, the frames 337-338 clearly shows the entirely intact back of the President’s head after the shot (Wrone, id., p.182).

The glaring light lasting a few seconds is also a signal of the large friction heat produced there, which is proved by the fully scientific explanation of the head shot given in Head shot / The science behind the JFK assassination by Chambers (2012, p.202-210).

“ Because Kennedy’s head recoils backward at the moment of impact, it is reasonable to conclude, based on the law of conservation of momentum, that the bullet that struck him arrived from the front side of his head, remained trapped inside, and never exited... Large-caliber bullets, like those of the .26 Mannlicher-Carcano, have considerable mass and penetrating force while small-caliber rounds, like the .223, are substantially less massive and lack the punching power of their larger-caliber cousins. Small rounds, however, tend to remain inside the body, doing extensive internal damage. This is the principle behind the .22caliber M-16. Smaller objects have a larger surface area to volume ratio for a given shape. Since a bullet slows in proportion to its surface area through friction, small rounds come to rest inside the body much more readily than large-caliber bullets.” (Chambers, id., p.205).

In fact, the glaring light lasting a few seconds is as if the round were making a fire through much friction in boring the skull.

2°(b): The eyewitnesses:
Clint Hill (Secret Service agent, on the follow-up car), November 30, 1963: “I saw the President slump more toward his left. I jumped onto the left rear step of the Presidential automobile. Mrs. Kennedy shouted, ‘They’ve shot his head off;’ then turned and raised out of her seat as if she were reaching to her right rear toward the back of the car for something that had blown out.” [Statement: CE1024: 18H742] ” (Costella, 2007, p.102).

Governor John Connally (seated in front of the President), April 21, 1964: “(Mr. Specter: “Did Mrs. Kennedy state anything at that time ?”) Governor Connally; “Yes; I have to – I would say it was after the third shot when she said, ‘They have killed my husband.’” (Mr. Specter: “Did she say anything more ?”) Governor Connally: “Yes, she said, I heard her say one time, ‘I have got his brains in my hand.’” (Mr. Specter: “Did that constitute everything that she said at that time ?”) Governor Connally: “That is all I heard her say.” [Warren Commission testimony: 4H134] ” (Costella, 2007, p.104).

“College professor and well respected assassination researcher Josiah Thompson in his 1967 book Six Seconds in Dallas, systematically examined much of the photographic evidence, including the Moorman photograph. Emmett Hudson, one of the three men who had been standing on the knoll steps, had told the FBI that the shots sounded as if they had been fired to his left, behind and above him, which Thompson saw to be the corner of the stockade fence.” (Trask, id., p.253) “According to later studies, Moorman made this picture [#5] at about 1/5 of a second after the fatal head wound had occurred... Park employee Emmett Hudson (second from left) and two unidentified men also stand on the steps. Abraham Zapruder and Mary Sitzman are on top of a pedestal at the upper right corner of the print, while the five-foot-high grassy knoll stockade fence and a concrete retaining wall are in view across the street from Moorman’s position.” (Trask, id., p.246)

1°, 2°: The eyewitnesses: A puff of smoke emerged from the trees on the grassy knoll:
Some people say that they saw the smokes from the trees on the north grassy knoll when they were viewing the Presidential motorcade, standing on top of the triple overpass commanding Dealey Plaza very well [FBI report, etc.] (Costella, id., p.31-32).
