President. A doctor by the name of Ronald Jones describes he experience of performing the resuscitation of President Kennedy. In the article from USA Today it states, “Jones looked at the president: His eyes were open but had little or no life in them, he said. "I never saw them move," he said. "It was a stare, straight ahead." Efforts done by the team of doctors did not work. The article continues with Jones stating, “When the doctors saw how one of the bullets had shattered the back of Kennedy's skull, they sensed the effort was fruitless, Jones said. An EKG machine showed no heart activity.” Twelve minutes later the president was pronounced dead. Jones said, “two men immediately confronted him and one said he was an FBI agent who needed to inform the head of the FBI, J. Edgar Hoover of the President’s condition. The other man was from the Secret Service and was to tell JFK’s father, Joseph Kennedy whether his son was dead or alive.” Not wanting to be the first to declare the President being dead, Jones said, "He's not doing very well. That's when it really hit hard," he said. "Joseph Kennedy was about to find out his son was dead as President of the United States" (http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/08/07/kennedy-assassination-doctor-parkland/2609969/). Then, Naval Admiral, Dr. George Burkley, who was the President’s personal physician, arrived to the hospital. Shortly later, he signed the President’s death certificate stating, “The President was struck in the head.” The autopsy was then held at the Bethesda Naval Hospital. Dr. Burkley was present for this procedure but the autopsy was to be performed by Dr. James J. Humes, who was a military personal. Dr. Humes was a forensic pathologist; he had
never performed an autopsy before. Dr. Burkley ordered Dr. Humes not to track the path of the bullet wounds and to destroy the original notes made of the autopsy, which required Dr. Humes certification of this being action to be taken place. Later in a testimony, Humes stated, “the original notes, which were strained with the blood of our late President, I felt, were inappropriate to retain.” (Groden 73-75). What can be inferred from this is that evidence of the autopsy could be invalid since much of the original evidence was destroyed. Photographs that were taken during the procedure were then used as permanent record of the President’s autopsy. The photographs were not only poorly done, tampered with, and forged. Much of this evidence was missing or destroyed as well from the government the day of the assassination. During court hearings, personnel were put under threat of courts-martial with the following edict to not reveal any autopsy findings. The original information given out by the doctors in Dallas describing the wounds on President was nothing related to the images of the autopsy photographs. The counterfeited photos, and notes of what occurred to the President are clear evidence of a schemed attempt to mislead...
