Moon Shot (TV Movie 1994) - IMDb
Apollo whistleblowers may well have been murdered or silenced. death is suspicious (and the disappearance of his 500-page report). There is reason for suspicion regarding the Apollo 1 fire, concern regarding Jim Irwin’s sudden death, and less violent suppression efforts directed toward people such as Bart Sibrel (him being silenced until his evidence was analyzed). The defense establishment has silenced or murdered many whistleblowers when it related to military matters, and the same defense establishment players built the equipment that went to the Moon. However, when I have encountered dead and silenced whistleblowers, it was usually for the understandable defense contractor motivation of . Defense contractors do not want whistleblowers disclosing the fact that they made substandard equipment or were wasteful. The contractors could get disciplined, lose contracts and get a public black eye. Killing “big mouths” has been typical behavior in the defense establishment, and I am particularly aware of that kind of activity happening back during the Apollo days, while the very same defense establishment was committing . They could have silenced whistleblowers but also taken their criticisms seriously and attempted to make their equipment better. Before Baron died, Major General Samuel Phillips was making observations similar to Baron’s, and issued his own report. Murdering a low level technician would have been a much easier task than bumping off a major general.

One area of evidence deals with photogrammetrics, and Jack White made the case that the shadows on his body did not fall in the same line as the shadows on his face, for further evidence of fakery. The HSCA investigators performed a sophisticated analysis where they drew lines from the places on Oswald’s body that cast the shadow to where the shadow hit the ground. They performed what they called a “vanishing point” analysis in which the lines all converged on the source of light, the Sun. The HSCA panel was also skeptical of the vanishing point analysis, as the lines appeared to converge only slight past Oswald’s head, not at the distant Sun. In 2009, a college professor, Hany Farid, who is now known to , produced an analysis of the lighting below Oswald's chin and the shadow cast behind his body in 133-A, and determined that they came from the same light source, so he concluded that the backyard photographs were genuine. Case closed. His analysis was predictably ballyhooed by the media, but no serious investigator considered it anything more than another publicity stunt by the apologists, and in that instance by an admitted asset of the FBI. That kind of "analysis" makes the conspiracy suspicions even stronger, not allay them.
There are a few problems with the alleged photo date of March 31. March 31 may have been too early in the year for the plants and trees in the photos to be in bloom. What is more problematic about the March 31 date is that the photographs were taken in bright sunshine, but the weather records for Dallas on that date show that it was cloudy with traces of rain all day. There are a couple more oddities to consider before getting to the actual photo analysis. One is that when the FBI finally received custody of the Imperial Reflex camera in February of 1964, it did not work, and when it was first shown to Marina, she was unable to identify it as belonging to her husband, even though she supposedly used it. When she was asked how to use that camera, she thought that she held it up to her face, as with most cameras, but the viewfinder in that camera was on top of it, and the camera was held at the waist. The other oddity is that the Oswald in the photos is wearing a black shirt, black pants, and a distinctive wristwatch. After the assassination, the investigators could not find in Oswald's possessions the black shirt, black pants, or the wristwatch, and nobody ever remembered Oswald wearing that wristwatch.
