“From Dallas, Texas, the flash apparently official: President Kennedy died at 1 p.m. Central Standard Time, 2:00 Eastern Standard Time, some 38 minutes ago.”

Listen to reporter Robert MacNeil's first-hand account of that fateful moment (source: MacNeil/Lehrer on the JFK Assassination; Newseum) below.
If Robert MacNeil's recalls the short succession of the second and the third shots correctly, the they could not have been fired at the president from the weapon the supposedly lonely gunman used. Carbine-type rifles cannot be reloaded and aimed that fast. Moreover, it seems incredible that a modest marksman with a modest rifle without a precisely sighted-in telescope could have a hit a person in a moving vehicle from the distance and the angle from which he was supposed to have accomplished this feat.
District Attorney Jim Garrison pursued valid leads, but his trails went cold. This country will not rest until satisfactory answers have been found.
