In the video below Zapruder claims he saw JFK slump to the left after the first shot. He says nothing about the famous "throat-clutching" response that Zapruder documented during his filming. Why not? The throat clutching according to the extant Zapruder film happened immediately after the first shot and before JFK ever slumped left. One would think that Zapruder should have mentioned it but he didn't.
Zapruder then says he heard one or two more shots and saw the right front of JFK's head explode. This of course is totally incompatible with what the Parkland Hospital physicians documented only several minutes later and what witnesses reported on the scene.
It is clear that at the time of this very early interview, Zapruder was already parroting what would become the official story about a head shot from behind only--that exploded the right side and front of JFK's head.
I cannot help but wonder if (as other researchers have hypothesized) Zapruder was an intelligence cut-out directed to film the assassination. It strains credulity to think that an amateur photographer who was nothing more than an interested bystander could have continued to film the assassination without interuption when everyone around him was either falling to the ground or running away. An opposing view is that of author Noel Twyman (Bloody Treason), who in his book contends that Zapruder was not involved in the conspiracy to assassinate JFK. I find this extremely difficult to believe.
It would be good if someone can produce the exact time that the interview below was conducted. I assume it was sometime Friday afternoon November 22, 1963.
