Book Review: JFK Has Been Shot by Dr Charles A. Crenshaw with Jens Hansen and Gary Shaw
This is a revised edition of a book that was published as the Ã¢â?¬Å?JFK ConspiracyÃ¢â?¬Â? in 1992. Dr Crenshaw as one of the doctors (surgeons/physicians) who examined the dead body of President JF Kennedy after he was shot at Dealey Plaza, Dallas, Texas on 23 November 1963.
Dr Crenshaw provides a fascinating account of what really happened when JFK was brought into Trauma Room 1 of Parkland Hospital, Dallas. Dr Crenshaw provides evidence that JFK was shot by at least 4 bullets, 2 in the back and 2 in the head and neck. There was at least two snipers. The head and neck wounds of JFK were definitely caused by high projectile bullets which entered the President from the front while the other bullet (s) were from the rear. There was also a bullet which entered Governor Connolly which was previously regarded by the US Government Warren Commission as also passing through the body of JFK and being fired from the Texas Book Depository by Lee Harvey Oswald. This means that at least three shooters were involved. Also there was at least one bullet reported that missed both Connolly and JFK which hit the concrete pavement and some cement fragments apparently hit the face of JFK during the shooting.
Crenshaw clearly shows that the US Government covered up the events surrounding JFKÃ¢â?¬â?¢s death, especially the autopsy which should have been undertaken at Parkland Hospital by the doctors there. However, JFKÃ¢â?¬â?¢s body was forcefully removed by agents to Air Force One where it was flown to the Bethesda Naval Hospital, Maryland where it was examined and modified by untrained military (naval) Ã¢â?¬Å?doctorsÃ¢â?¬Â? there. New replacement photos were taken of the modified wounds of JFK at Bethesda. Apparently his head wound was clogged up with putty and what remained of his scalp, glued over this putty. In addition, his frontal neck wound was made larger, apparently in order to disguise the original wound which showed a neat entrance bullet hole.
Th first time that I viewed the Zapruder film of the assassination, I knew that from the head movements of JFK sitting in the back of the limousine, that he was struck in the head from the front and not from the back by the bullets. It is clear to me from this book that there was a massive conspiracy and cover-up using Secret Service agents, FBI agents, Lee Harvey Oswald, Jack Ruby and others. All of this points to LB Johnson as a major conspirator as he displayed strange behavior soon after the death of the President. Dr Crenshaw also received a strange telephone call from Johnson which was unexpected and did not follow normal protocol.
This is a riveting book which is hard to put down. It is fascinating and illustrated with graphic photos, some of which I had never seen before. In this 2013 revised edition, there are informative updates by Jens Henson and Gary Shaw as well as reflections by Dr Cyril Wecht.
This book is an important document which shows that the Warren Commission provided erroneous data and conclusions. Lee Harvey Oswald was definitely a Ã¢â?¬Å?patsyÃ¢â?¬Â?, just as he screamed when he was captured, and maybe his bullets from his ancient Mannlicher-Carcano gun went through the back of JFK without killing him. Ruby definitely killed Oswald to shut him up about the conspiracy and was obviously aware of the conspiracy as well.
A very interesting book which is highly recommended.
