Although speculation remains mixed about the presence of a shooter on the grassy knoll, at least one witness's testimony can be disregarded as evidence of a shooter: S.M. Holland.

“I saw a puff of smoke still lingering among the trees in front of the wooden fence."

Unless the "professional assassins" were using Civil War heirlooms to shoot at the president, smoke is not an indication of weapon discharge. Small arms have used smokeless ammunitions since the late 19th century.

Mrs. Oswald’s third and final day of testimony established the opposite of reasonable doubt. The examination queried Mrs. Oswald’s satisfaction with her treatment by the Secret Service and FBI during her time in protective custody after the death of Mr. Oswald, during which she stayed at various hotels and finally with the Martin family – a non-Russian speaking household - that allowed Mrs. Oswald to acquire limited English.

Mrs. Oswald indicated that she had been treated well by her government escorts, had not been denied freedoms, nor had she been denied visitors.
