David Pratt, a scholar with no taste for conspiracy theories, read the Warren
Commission Report on the John F. Kennedy assassination and assumed
that the facts had been examined thoroughly, and that its conclusion, that

A time-line is a valuable and respected investigative tool. I was very impressed with the list of established facts that David Pratt elicited from the record.

But because I know David Pratt is a serious scholar who does not indulge in conspiracy theories, I found his conclusions surprisingly convincing. I am very interested in the reaction of other knowledgeable people.
