Author Discusses “JFK: The Smoking Gun”
A veteran police detective, Colin McLaren in Melbourne Australia believes that after four years of continuous research and writing, he has uncovered just how President John F. Kennedy was killed.
Veteran Police Detective Colin McLaren spent four years on the forensic cold case investigation of JFK's assassination. What he had, and other investigators did not, was modern technology and access to all the evidence, facts and eye-witness testimony.
Seventy-five percent of the American people still refuse to believe the official story of President John F. Kennedy’s death. They do not think he was killed by a lone gunman but by a mysterious cabal that somehow conspired to have him killed. How can this be? How can a crime this famous, witnessed and investigated by so many, remain a mystery? This is what veteran Australian police detective Colin McLaren is determined to find out.
JFK: The Smoking Gun follows the forensic cold-case investigation McLaren conducted over four painstaking years, taking us back to that tragic day in Dallas at Dealey Plaza where the shooting took place, to Parkland Hospital where the president was pronounced dead, to the Bethesda Naval Hospital where the autopsy was conducted and to the conclusions of the Warren Commission that have remained controversial to this day.
Driven by a seasoned police detective who, thanks to modern technology, finally had access to all the facts and to witness testimony, the documentary film uses logic, reason and time-tested investigative techniques to solve a crime that is every bit as shocking and incredible today as it was when it first happened 50 years ago. Colin McLaren believes he has found “the smoking gun” that killed JFK. Once you’ve seen this documentary film, he’s confident you will believe it, too.
PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) – A veteran police detective in Melbourne, Australia believes that after four years of continuous research and writing, he has uncovered just how President John F. Kennedy was killed.
Colin McLaren used the research from another author to inspire his ongoing investigation in to the truth.
McLaren built his book, “JFK: The Smoking Gun,” around the research previously done by ballistics expert, Howard Donahue.
Donahue spent 20 years studying the JFK assassination and his work is included in author Bonar Menninger’s book, “Mortal Error: The Shot that Killed JFK.
His fascination started when he was on vacation many years ago and came across Menninger’s book. Then for the next 15 years his interest was peaked and he wanted to know more about the information that Donahue and Menninger had presented.
McLaren started his research in January of 2009. His work is a confirmation of Donahue’s theory and a continuation of Menninger’s research.
To summarize their theory of the accident, a Secret Service agent accidentally fired that fatal shot. There were three rounds, but the third came from a different place causing President John F. Kennedy’s head to move forward, not behind.
There were two guns, three bullets and two shooters. One was using a full metal jacket bullet that was fired twice at the president, then a hollow-point bullet fired from a rifle to kill him.
So the story goes, a Secret Service agent in the car behind the president’s was standing on an unstable vehicle and stumbled over, accidentally pulling the trigger and firing at the president.
“This was clearly a horrific accident with a fool-hearted, poor assassination attempt by Lee Harvey Oswald,” said McLaren.
“If you look at the science of it all it has to be from behind and it has to be a straight level and it has to be from somebody with a .223 or hollow-point round, that’s a rifle round,” said McLaren. “And who on that day was armed with a round or at least a rifle firing a hollow-point, the question is easy to answer, it’s the Secret Service detail in the car behind.”
He examined the characters of the Secret Service men who later admitted to drinking alcohol and entertaining strippers the night before. McLaren feels that these men were hung over, with clouded minds while wearing impaired dark sunglasses.
Although, he believes the agent who accidentally fired his gun was a new member to the team and was strictly assigned as the driver not a field agent.
Witnesses who were there say that they saw the men in the second car falter and stumble in the chaos and panic. This was an event that could never be replicated and is a “once in history” moment.
The AR-15 is a lightweight, 5.56 mm/.223-caliber, magazine-fed, air cooled rifle with a rotating-lock bolt, actuated by direct impingement gas operation or long/short stroke piston operation. It has been produced in many different versions, including numerous semi-automatic and selective fire variants. It is manufactured with extensive use of aluminum alloys and synthetic materials.
The AR-15 was first built by ArmaLite as a small arms rifle for the United States armed forces. Because of financial problems, ArmaLite sold the AR-15 design to Colt. After modifications (most notably the relocation of the charging handle from under the carrying handle like the AR-10 to the rear of the receiver), the new redesigned rifle was subsequently adopted as the M16 rifle.
Colt then started selling the semi-automatic version of the M16 rifle as the Colt AR-15 for civilian sales in 1963 and the term has been used to refer to semiautomatic-only versions of the rifle since then. Although the name "AR-15" remains a Colt registered trademark, variants of the firearm are independently made, modified and sold under various names by multiple manufacturers.
(The book and film refer to the rifle the secret service used as an AR15. The secret service agent did use an AR15 that was an automatic AR15, IE a machine gun. The same name AR15 name is now used to represent a civilian SEMI AUTOMATIC rifle, it only fires one bullet per trigger pull! Don't think the secret service agent used anything other than an automatic rifle. Its confusing because Colt continued to use the name AR15 which in the beginning was the name used for the weapons that were automatic built for the military but now the AR15 is term is used in relation to civilian rifles that are SEMI AUTOMATIC ONLY! This means also when the secret service agent pulled the trigger it fired more than one time. It fired serveral times at the minimum. One of these bullets hit Kennedy. It sounds like an accident but accident or not we now know that yes the government did kill Kennedy either by accident or on purpose.) Story Reports
You have to realize that this happened in 1963, not in 2013. People were not so jaded with respect to the government. Also, the government treated the masses as if they were stupid sheep who would believe anything and for the most part, they did. To answer the question as to why the parties involved wouldn't have just admitted the truth, understanding the mindsets of the day are important. ~ I was 9 years old when Kennedy was shot and I don't think I ever believed the results of the Warren Commission. By the same token, I've never seen or heard anything that so clearly explained what might have happened as this documentary. I'd never before heard of Donahue's research or his book or the matter may well have been put to rest for me many years ago. ~ I was never looking to exonerate Oswald, the Secret Service, or anyone else. All I've ever wanted was to understand the truth of what happened that November day in 1963. I think I finally do. ~ This film is definitely worth watching. ~
This documentary closely follows the book, Mortal Error, which I read back in the early 90's. The book was the first realistic explanation for the Kennedy assassination I'd heard, and I'd read probably hundreds of explanations and theories as to who, what, when, where, etc. Colin's investigation takes a step-by-step look into not only what happened to Kennedy on that fateful day in Dallas, but into the mind and workings of a dedicated investigative professional who will not stop til the questions are answered. Definitely worth the watch-- the film is engaging, precise, well-researched and well put-together. Highly recommended.
Mystery solved! Skeptical? Initially, I was too. Watch this Documentary, and decide for yourself. Fifty plus years later, finally all the jigsaw puzzle pieces perfectly fit!!! A MUST SEE... if you want the truth, if you love history, and if you want SOLID PROOF of what really happened.
(I watched this film on nexflix last night. I was impressed with the details of the investigator. They found 3 shells next to where oswald fired a gun. One one them was used as a "plug" for the gun. That could mean he fired only 2 shots. That makes sense to me.The first shot hit the pavement. The next shot cut through Kennedy's throat. The third shot came from a secret service agent, just behind Kennedy's, car that had picked up an AR15 took the safety off, fell backward in the car and accidently pulled the trigger as the car sped off.
The secret service altered the evidence from the time of the autopsy to coverup the facts. The warren commission did a bad investigation working with the secret service to cover up the fact that oswald was not the only shooter.
Many people smelled gun power that day and it was not coming from a sixth floor window. It was at ground level. That means a gun was fired near Kennedy.
How would it look for the US to admit that Kennedy was killed by a secret service agent along with oswald?
So I do think the government covered up the facts and altered the facts. This book and movie proves that our corrupt government did in fact kill Kennedy.) Story Reports
