By Magen Knuth One of the key pieces of evidence in the Warren Commission Report was a brown paper bag supposedly found on the six Research paper on the fbi of the Depository. It was 38 inches long and marks on the inside consistent with a rifle. The Commission claimed that this bag was used to conceal the Mannlicher-Carcano rifle that Oswald brought with him to work on the morning of November 22, The original bag is now in the National Archives.
It was discolored when it was tested for latent prints by FBI agent Latona who applied silver nitrate. A small end section of the bag was not treated with silver nitrate and thus is the original color Yet conspiracy theorists have pointed to all sorts of "problems" with this particular piece of evidence.
They have a long list of reasons why the bag was either not in the depository or contained something else. It's not clear that they need to attack the Warren Commission version here. A conspiracy theory could easily involve Lee Oswald being ordered to bring, or manipulated into bringing a rifle into Dallas that day.
Conspiracists tend to compulsively reject any Warren Commission finding. But does the evidence support the Warren Commission on this issue? Was the long paper bag in the depository?
Minutes after John F. Kennedy was shot, an intensive search of the Texas School Book Depository was conducted.
Among the items discovered was a long paper bag believed used to carry the rifle into the Depository. While the Dallas police photographed all the evidence found in connection with the assassination, they failed to photograph the long paper bag in place.
This mistake has led many conspiracy theorists to conclude that the bag was never in the depository.
Twelve officers, all of whom had been on the sixth floor of the Depository, were questioned by the Warren Commission on whether they saw a long paper bag. Conspiracy authors point out that six of the officers stated they had not seen the bag.
But the other six said they had. It might seem suspicious that six police officers did not see the bag, until we look at the details of their testimony. None of the six could reasonably have been expected to see it.
