Yes, I agree. He was also trained in Russian by the military. I wouldn't
dismiss the possibility that he was in fact involved with the CIA at some
level. Doesn't mean the CIA had him shoot JFK, just that he could have
been involved with them. And if he was, plenty of motive for the CIA to
want to hide it.
I agree, Ruby had those connections. But one of the most interesting
things I learned on the 50th anniversary was that it's documented than
just a few minutes before shooting Oswald, Ruby was at the Western Union
office a couple blocks from police headquarters, wiring some money to
a stripper. If he was the guy the mafia or whoever sent to kill Oswald,
it seems very odd that he would be screwing around, at WU, instead of
getting to Dallas police headquarters. Also, Oswald was actually moved
later than planned, so if he was supposed to be there to whack him, it
sure was a strange performance.
Yes, that's another fascinating part. The one thing that convinces me
more than anything else that this wasn't some grand conspiracy is how
Oswald got the job at the TSBD. All this has been documented. There
was an 18 year old guy from Arkansas, I think, who couldn't find a job
there. So, he moved to Dallas to live with his sister. He wound up
finding a job at TSBD. Some months later, his sister happened to be
at the home of a neighbor/friend. That neighbor also knew Marina Oswald.
Marina happened to come over and while there, the subject that Lee Oswald
was having trouble finding a job. That women told Marina that she her
brother had found a job at TSBD and that he should try there. The
intermdediary neighbor actually called TSBD to inquire about job
openings, because Marina didn't speak English well.
Oswald went to the TSBD and was hired at the same time as another fellow.
The manager who hired both of them, stated that he had two positions to
fill, at two different locations, and it was only by chance that he
decided to put Oswald at the TSBD. So, either this was pure chance,
or it was one hell of conspiracy to get all these people involved.
On the CIA/conspiracy or is it pure coincidence craziness, are you
aware of this? There was a wealthy businessman named George De Mohrenshildt,
who befriended Oswald. It's been alleged that he must have been Oswald's
handler. It's clear that this guy had been passing info to the CIA, as
was common back then, about his overseas business trips to countries of
interest. If he was more than that, who knows. DM's version was that
he was of Russian decent and met and took interest in Oswald through some
Russian community organization in TX. But the 1 in a billion thing here
is that DM had a brother on Long Island who he visited regularly. Who
was a close friend of his brother's family? Jackie Bouvier. As a child
she had sat on the lap of this DM guy and called him Uncle. I mean
that this guy befriended both Jackie Kennedy as a child and later Oswald,
what are the odds of that? It's like all the crazy planets aligned for
all this to come into play. I mean it's all totally bizarre, but at the
same time, what logical grand conspiracy would put Jackie into contact
with the same guy who happened to later know Oswald?
Just one to add for the record that the single bullet theory actually
involves two bullets. About one, even the conspiricists haven't
expressed doubt, so that leaves the other which conspiracists say were
really two bullets (that is, three total), but was, I'm sure enough,
only one, two total.
I don't want anyone reading about the other bullet and thinking that
contradicts the single bullet theory.
As to the other claim, that the shooter couldn't have fired even two
bullets in the time between the first and last, I'll admit I didn't have
a gun but I tried to similate two shots in the allotted time, and it
didnt' seem so hard. I happened to be standing at the window of the
Texas Schoolbook Depository** at the time, but I think one could do the
same test anywhere. **They won't lend guns for testing purposes.
