Essentially, the guy believes that the secret service guy in the car behind Kennedy's shot him on accident. M16 that was brand new, they were filled with hollow point bullets. Oswald was using FMJ's where they are more prone to go through the target without much destruction. Hollow points leave big holes because they expand and such. Guards were out til 5AM the night before, the guard in the car behind Kennedy was on his first day on duty, never handled the brand new M16s yet. Measured the trajectory of Kennedy's head exploding and it shows the shot came from behind, to the left, and a little bit below him, where the guard was sitting. People on the streets reported smelling gun powder and swear they thought Secret Service was "firing back". Makes more sense to me than anything else I've heard on the subject. Secret Service didn't want to look like idiots so they gathered up all the photos and reports and don't know where they are now, and wouldn't let the autopsy happen right there in Texas.

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.
