Needless to say I have embraced it as true but feel that Walker, himself, is a window into a world of mirrors.
In most debates that I involve myself in on the subject of the assassination of John F. Kennedy, I find they are usually ended when the person accross from me gets to the point of saying that the atempted assassination of Walker by Oswald cannot be proved or there is no evidence. If anything in this case had been "proved" we would not be here attempting to prove or disprove something!
I have reproduced Epstein's collection of the known information about the supporting evidence surrounding the Walker incident. Add to the list that George De Mohrenschildt "commited suicide" after an interview with Epstein that was to be followed by an additional interview the next day. There topic was the Walker assassination attempt.
"On 29th March, 1977, Epstein and De Mohrenschildt, broke for lunch and decided to meet again at 3 p.m. George De Mohrenschildt returned to his room where he found a card from Gaeton Fonzi, an investigator working for the Select House Committee on Assassinations. George De Mohrenschildt's body was found later that day. He had apparently committed suicide by shooting himself in the mouth."

From Epstein: The "Neutron Activation Analysis done in 1977 (by the HSCA) exactly matched the metallic elements found in the bullet that was recovered in Walker's home to the batch of Mannlicher-Carcano ammunition used in Oswald's rifle in the assassination of Kennedy.... the House Select Committee employed a very advanced form of neutron activation analysis to match the recovered bullet and fragments to the ammunition used in the Mannlicher Carcano. In this technique, traces from the ballistic evidence are bombarded by neutrons in a nuclear reactor so that the precise composition of elements-- antimony, silver, and copper-- can be measured by their emissions on a gamma-ray spectrometer to an accuracy of one-billionth of a gram. The composition of traces from the bullet and fragments were thus compared to that of the unfired bullet found in the chamber of the Mannlicher-Carcano and found to exactly match."
"On April 10, 1963, Lee Harvey Oswald attempted to assassinate General Edwin Walker, a right- wing leader in Dallas with a high-powered rifle, after aborting a previous attempt on April 5th. The evidence of this assassination attempt includes the testimony of his wife, Marina Oswald, a note in his handwriting Russian describing what Marina should do, after the Walker shooting, if he were arrested, killed or had to go into hiding, photographs of Walker's house from the sniper's position taken by Oswald's camera and pasted into Oswald's scrapbook, and a Neutron Activation test that showed that the metallic elements found in the bullet that was recovered in Walker's home matched the ammunition used in Oswald's rifle in the assassination of Kennedy (This technology for this test, done in 1977, did not exist in 1963). Oswald had told a number of people he knew that someone should shoot Walker a month prior to the shooting, and, on April 5th, when he made his first attempt, he had Marina take a photograph of him dressed in black, armed to kill with a rifle and telescopic sight, and holding in his hand the radical newspaper, The Militant. Those who reportedly knew that he was a self-styled assassin include:
1) Marina Oswald. She testified to the Warren Commission that when Oswald returned on the evening of April 10th, he explained to her that he had just attempted to kill General Edwin Walker with his rifle.
2) George De Mohrenschildt. He had seen Oswald's sniper's rifle. He had heard Oswald make rabid threats against Walker the prior month. He had received the photograph which was signed "For George, Lee Harvey Oswald" and dated April 5th, 1963 (Oswald's first attempt on Walker). If he had any doubts why Oswald was holding the rifle in the photo, Marina had scribbled on back in Russian "Hunter of Fascists. Ha. Ha" After he heard on the radio that a sniper had fired a shot at General Walker and, next day, he went over to Oswald's house to find out what had happened to the rifle. According to Marina's testimony, he had rushed up the stairs, and said "Lee, how did you miss General Walker?"
3) Jean De Mohrenschildt. According to Mohrenschildt, he had told his wife in April 1963, when he left Dallas to go to Washington DC.
4) J. Walter Moore, a CIA officer working in the CIA's Domestic Contact Division in Dallas, according to De Mohrenschildt. De Mohrenschildt told me that he had reported the Walker assassination attempt and the telltale "Hunter of Fascists" photograph to Moore.
5)Eusebio Azque, the Cuban counsel in Mexico City. Marina testified that Oswald brought photos of the Walker shooting to Mexico to support his request for a visa to go to Cuba. According to witnesses at the consulate, Oswald showed these photographs to Azque, and became involved in a heated argument with him about his bona fides as a Pro-Castro revolutionary." Epstein
I believe the Warren Report is a masterful cover-up of a great deal of information. The beginning of Walker’s testimony becomes a striking example when you open the book on Walkers military "background." Development of Special Forces, Special Operations, Covert War (Greece), etc., etc., etc. and close association with Maxwell Taylor.
From the Testimony of Edwin Anderson Walker
Q) Would you state your full name for the record, please?
A) Edwin A. Walker. A stands for Anderson.
Q) What is your address?
A) 4011 Turtle Creek Boulevard, Dallas, Tex.
Q) How long have you lived there?
A) I believe since December of 1961 or January of 1962. I am not sure of the month I moved in.
Q) I don't think we have to indicate a great deal of your background for the record, since I think we all know who you are, but you are a retired major general, are you not?
A) No. I am former major general, now resigned from the U.S. Army.
I have used the phrase, "Forrest Gump like life" to describe General Walker. He is always everywhere but people seem to ignore his life as many people ignore the simpleton or homeless person they see on the streets of there own hometowns.
As researchers, weather we like it or not, General Edwin Anderson Walker, is on our turf. Do we continue to ignore him or do we face the reality of this ugly truth?
