Gerald Ford’s Big Kennedy Assassination Lie

May 17, 2015

Gerald Ford, the guy President Johnson said “was so dumb he couldn’t walk and chew gum at the same time” was known to have been a FBI snitch within the Warren Commission. The Commission of course, had been set up to whitewash the evidence and create the cover story of a single, deranged Lee Harvey Oswald as the assassin of President John F. Kennedy. There are many accounts of Ford relaying the inner workings of the Commission to Hoover’s FBI, but this article from the Washington Post (2008) provides a good description:

Ford told FBI about panel’s doubts on JFK murder
The Associated Press
Saturday, August 9, 2008

WASHINGTON — Former President Ford secretly advised the FBI that two of his fellow members on the Warren Commission doubted the FBI’s conclusion that John F. Kennedy was shot from the sixth floor of the Texas Book Depository in Dallas, according to newly released records from Ford’s FBI files.

Ford, still a congressman at the time, also told a senior FBI official about internal panel disputes over hiring staff, Chief Justice Earl Warren’s timetable for completing the final report on the assassination and what panel members said about the FBI.

In turn, Assistant FBI Director Cartha “Deke” DeLoach confidentially advised Ford of FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover’s position on panel disputes; discussed where leaks were coming from; and, with Hoover’s personal approval, loaned him a bureau briefcase with a lock so he could securely take the FBI report on the 1963 assassination with him on a ski trip.

The new details were included in 500 pages of the FBI’s large file on Ford, released in part this past week in response to requests under the Freedom of Information Act that The Associated Press and others made on the day Ford died in December 2006. The FBI intends to release additional documents about Ford in several batches, all with parts censored for law enforcement and privacy reasons.

That Ford served as the FBI’s eyes and ears inside the commission has been known for years. Long ago, the government released a 1963 FBI memo that said Ford, then a Republican congressman from Michigan, had volunteered to keep the FBI informed about the panel’s private deliberations, but only if that relationship remained confidential. The bureau agreed.

What many people don’t know is that Gerald Ford also altered the location of the entry wound in Kennedy’s back so that the path of the bullet would match up with the Commissions invention of “the single bullet theory”. The Commission knew how many seconds it took to fire the rifle that was found in the school book depository, and claimed only three shots were fired. In their version of events one shot missed, one shot was the fatal head wound, and one shot (the single – or “magic” bullet) created seven wounds in both Kennedy and Governor Connolly, emerging in “pristine” condition on an unrelated stretcher in Parkland Hospital. It is this scenario that is pictured above, with the bullet changing directions without hitting bone until it reaches Connolly’s ribs (taking out five inches), blasting through his wrist (radius bone) and landing in his left thigh – all while not becoming deformed in any way. This scenario allowed the Commission to lay the blame on Oswald, the self-described “Patsy” in the plot as the lone shooter. Governor Connolly claimed to his death that he was hit by a seperate, different bullet. The House Select Committee on Assassinations found that there were at least two shooters and four bullets. Robert Groden has stated that he was not allowed to testify what he really found – that there were as many as seven shots and three shooters. None-the-less, that committee, as flawed as it was, wiped the Warren Commission off the map.
Below is the actual document altered by Gerald Ford which moves the entry wound from the shoulder to the neck:


And here is the description of the incident from the JFK-Lancer website:
“The signed autopsy sheet, including the placement and description of the back wound, was verified by Admiral George Gregory Burkley, personal physician to the president who directed the autopsy at Bathesda. Burkley filled out and signed John F. Kennedy’s official death certificate on November 23rd, 1963. He verified the location of the back wound and signed the Kennedy autopsy sheet at Bethesda on November 24th. That death certificate revealed the back wound to be, in the Admiral’s own words, at the president’s “third thoracic vertebra.” The neck has seven CERVICAL vertebrae, and this observed and verified wound was described as three THORACIC vertebrae lower than the neck itself. A wound in the back, exactly where the official autopsy sheet and the coat and shirt placed it. Warren Commissioner Gerald Ford was one of the key people responsible for misleading the U.S. public about the facts of the JFK assassination. The single bullet theory and the lone assassin fiction are only possible if we believe Gerald Ford’s terrible fiction.”

I have personally spoken to a member of the Burkley family. They told me several interesting things about this, the first being that it was rumored that Dr. Burkley had been in possession of Kennedy’s brain. Dr. Burkley had been visited by the Secret Service once a year until his death. The family member also told me that something – something very important had been stolen from Dr. Burkley in an airport while traveling to Denver. My guess is that it had something to do with the autopsy of Kennedy. During the above mentioned HSCA investigation Dr. Burkley had his lawyer contact Richard Sprague with an offer to provide proof of a conspiracy with more than a single shooter. Sprague, who was carrying out a serious investigation, was replaced because he was getting too close to the truth. Dr. Burkley’s tip was never followed up. Here’s the document below:

Burkley record

So, without Gerald Ford changing the location of the wound, Arlen Spector’s famous “magic bullet theory” could not have been explained, and evidence of a true conspiracy would have remained.
