Obviously the shot came from behind Kennedy (not from the front, as obviously as the "back and to the right" is an exit wound), but based on the trajectory he says the fatal shot came from a much lower trajectory, most likely the secret service car behind the president.
Except Elm St in Dealey Plaza in on a downward gradient (between 3° and 3.5°), and - according to his own calculations of the trajectory - the fatal shot would have had to be fired from someone 2-3 feet lower than the height of the windscreen on the SS follow car. Meaning the shot would have blasted through the windshield - more likely the dashboard - and possibly one or two SS agents before ever getting to Kennedy.
No witness ever testified to hearing shots from within the motorcade. No one in the SS follow car (including the president's aide) reacted to a gunshot in their ranks. None of the local cops reacted a shot from within the motorcade. And at least one of the amateur films shot that day (I think either the Nix or Bronson film) shows the SS follow car at the moment of the headshot, and no one is standing up holding a carbine and pointing it at the president's head, either deliberately or accidentally.
It's another BS conspiracy theory that extrapolates wild conclusions based on scientific-sounding conjecture that is often times contradictory within its own framework.
