For more than half a century, the JFK assassination has been shrouded in mystery. Many have been blamed, including the CIA, the Secret Service, Fidel Castro, the Russians, the mafia, right-wing extremists, and Lyndon Johnson. The true facts have been buried for decades beneath layers of distortions and misinformation.The solution to the assassination has always been right under our noses, hidden in plain sight. The key lies in the number of shots fired. The two official U.S. government investigations came to different conclusions on this issue, and both got it wrong. In the fog of war, the press got it wrong too, beginning with the first bulletin sent out over the wires just minutes after the shooting. A consensus groupthink soon emerged that did not reflect what really happened in Dallas. Nonstop reporting of inaccurate information actually caused witnesses to change their stories about what they really saw and heard that day.Phantom Shot analyzes the statements of key eyewitnesses, some of which were recorded just minutes after the shooting, before groupthink set in. Many of these witnesses were ignored by the government investigations. Their statements unravel the mystery of the assassination once and for all.Phantom Shot answers these questions and many more: How many shots were really fired? Was there a shot from the grassy knoll? Was Oswald the sole assassin? Was he part of a conspiracy? Was Jack Ruby sent by the mob to silence him? Did J. Edgar Hoover and others in the FBI know the solution to the assassination in 1964 and cover it up? Why did the Warren Commission ignore the statements of key eyewitnesses?
