Doctor Peters.
:58:03
There was a large 7-cm opening
at the right occipital parietal area.

:58:08
A considerable portion
of the brain was missing.

:58:12
A fifth or possibly a quarter of the back
of the head had been blasted out...

:58:17
...along with the underlying brain tissue.
:58:20
When's the proper time
to declare one dead?

:58:22
There was also a large fragment of skull
attached to a flap of the scalp.

:58:26
The exit hole in the rear of his head
measured about 120 mm...

:58:30
...or five inches, across.
:58:32
Not one of the civilian doctors
who examined the President...

:58:36
...regarded his throat wound as anything
but an entry wound.

:58:40
But then the body was illegally moved
to Washington for the autopsy.

:58:43
Because when a coup d'├ętat has occurred...
:58:46
...there's a big difference between
an autopsy performed by civilian doctors...

:58:50
...and one that is performed
by military doctors under orders.

:58:55
The departure of Air Force One, Friday
afternoon was not so much a takeoff...

:58:59
...as it was a getaway,
with the newly sworn in President.

:59:03
Objection!
:59:04
Sustained.
:59:05
On the plane, the White House Situation
Room announced Oswald's guilt...

:59:09
...to all passengers before any kind
of investigation had begun.

:59:13
The "angry lone nut" solution
is beginning to take shape.

:59:16
Objection, Your Honor.
Sustained.

:59:20
Please bottle the acid.
:59:24
The three Bethesda doctors picked by
the military left something to be desired.

:59:29
None of them had experience
with combat-gunfire wounds.

:59:33
Through their autopsy, we've been able
to justify eight wounds from two bullets.

:59:37
Three to Kennedy, five to Connally.
:59:40
One of them being the "magic bullet."
:59:42
FBI?
Here.

:59:44
Col. Finck, are you saying someone
told you not to dissect the neck?

:59:48
I was told the family wanted
the examination of the head.

:59:51
Oh, Christ.
:59:52
Looks like half his brain is gone.
:59:54
Weigh it.
653 grams.

:59:57
As a pathologist, it was your obligation
to explore...
