Dr. Perry and the JFK Throat Wound
The recent decision by President Joe Biden to delay for another year the full release of some still-secret JFK assassination documents is a testament to the fact that intelligence agencies are not transparent by nature and that they can keep secrets. But what is the intelligence community still hiding after 58 years?
The Warren Commission Report concluded that JFK was shot at three times from the 6th floor of the Texas School Board Depository by Lee Harvey Oswald. But critics of the Report have always argued that there is evidence that Kennedy was killed, instead, in a deadly crossfire by bullets fired from both the front (grassy knoll) and from the rear.
The Importance of Frontal Shots

If there were any frontal shots, it would confirm that the killing was not the act of some “lone nut” (Oswald) but was, instead, some sort of a conspiracy whose aim (perhaps) was regime-change, i.e., to alter the direction of U.S. domestic and foreign policy.
I argued recently on this website that there is simply no corroborating evidence that JFK was shot in the throat by a bullet from the front. (Whether the fatal “head shot” was frontal will not be examined here.) No bullets or bullet fragments were found in the throat by Dr. Malcolm Perry at Parkland Hospital when he performed tracheotomy surgery on the president. And according to the FBI agents present, no bullets or bullet fragments were discovered in the throat area when a dozen brain and full-body X-Rays were taken and developed at the “official” autopsy at the Bethesda Naval Hospital. Finally, no Secret Service agents in either the presidential limo or in the follow-up car reported that there were any shots fired from the front that hit the president in the throat.

One of the lingering controversies concerning the throat shot is that a bootleg autopsy photo of JFK on his back shows a substan
