    A simple question to James DiEugenio

    Sorry Dave, that’s not how 6.5 mm bullets work... They win, body tissue moves and is charred due to the speed... a sound wave and force wave is created.... tissue gets messed up buddy. you make it sound like a neutrino....

    O'Connor gives us this info from his time at the Autopsy He says they removed a bullet from the intercostal muscles.... Kinda interesting too that they don't talk about yet another bullet which is being discussed during the autopsy

    The ARRB is your friend Ron... They were able to get a lot of the HSCA testimony out and added to it... KNUDSEN is a very interesting story worth digging a bit deeper https://www.maryferrell.org/php/showlist.php?docset=1019 ARRB Medical Exhibits 125.ARRB MD 129 - Gawler's Funeral Home "First Call Sheet" which records events of November 22-23,1963 126.ARRB MD 130 - Gawler's "Arrangements File" which records arrangements for President John F.

    thanks Roy... I have to tip my math hat to Chris.. his vision here is quite clear... In any 4 frame run, 50% = 2 50% again = 1 frame left But they needn't be in a row.. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 x 1 x x x x x x 2 x x 3 Making 12 frames into 3 for example could look like this where the head's movement in frames 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, & 8 are removed leaving frame#2 (Z313) #9 (Z314) & frame #12 (Z315) as an example only.... I suggest reading Shaneyfelt's testimony repeatedly... His little charade made it virtually impossible to reconcile the data to the reality. What the frame numbers WERE really has no meaning anymore... Z313 is where it is cause that's where they put it.... ultimately... initially it was shot #2

    A simple question to James DiEugenio

    Mr. B here appears to be searching for the elusive "alternate truth" popularized by the most corrupt administration in history... and he does appear to raise Ad hom attacks to a new level I post this for Denny.... the probe proved the wounds were not connected... that and there not being any channel thru the upper torso left by a .25" bullet A number of people remember a metal probe being used... others don't. O'Connor doesn't, stating HUMES' finger was the extent of it... James Jenkins ARRB exhibit MD65... HSCA interview 1977 Jenkins recalled that the doctors extensively attempted to probe the back wound. He said the probe they used was a metal one, approximately eight inches long. He said that, "most of the probe went in... between the skin..." and not into the chest cavity. He said Humes could probe the bottom of the wound with his little finger and said that the metal probe went in 2 - 4 inches. He said it was quite a "...fact of controversy..." that the doctors "... couldn't prove the bullet came into the cavity." We also have MD135 Mr. KNUDSEN The primary points that we are going to cover are the number and locations of wounds and the other details in the photographs that you described generally, such as the presence of metal probes in the photographs and the presence of rules in the photographs, and what have you. Are you confident now that you saw metal probes in the photographs? Mr. Knudsen. Yes. Mr. Purdy. Are you confident that the metal probes were actually through the wounds when you saw them? Mr. Knudsen. Yes I am certain of that, because it showed the point of entry and exit with the probe. --- Mr. Purdy. Have you seen photographs of any other dead bodies that may have probes in them? Mr. Knudsen. Yes, I have. I am certain on the Kennedy there were the probes showing the point of entry and exit. Mr. Purdy. How many probes were there that you saw in a given picture? What is the most probes that you saw in a given picture at one time? Mr. Knudsen. I know there were two. Mr. Purdy. Two metal probes that were through wounds when you saw them? Mr. Knudsen. Yes

    please excuse the repetitiveness... The Evidence IS the Conspiracy..... This is it in a nutshell.... Shaneyfelt moved the path of the limo, thereby moving JFK. Although part 2 is that what we see as FRAME 133, the start of the limo on Elm. If we're right, a 48fps film was cut by 50% and then 50% again to arrive at an 18.3 frames per second which equates exactly to the run and rise of Elm... For every 18.3 feet, Elm drops 1 foot. At the speed offered they kept things simple by making the speed equate to 1 foot per frame as an average between 161 and 313 Shaneyfelt gives it away here... frame 133 is the furthest point they had on the Zapruder film, not 161. we took the farthest distance point we had in the Zapruder film which was frame 161 through frame 313. This was found to run elapsed time from the film standpoint which runs at 18.3 frames a second, runs for a total of 8.3 seconds. This distance is 136.1 feet, and this can be calculated then to 11.2 miles per hour.

    A simple question to François Carlier

    Ford was important - he showed us why it's called the Silly Bullet Theory If you don't move the hole up... as they described for Ryberg.... but then the bullet doesn't RISE any more... then again some people "Ain't Gonna Learn what they don't wanna know"

    Sometime you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right.... Well done Chris... need to raise the rifle 3.54”.... lol... And Shaneyfelt’s Pos A is blown to hell... Mr. SPECTER. When you say that position A is the first position at which President Kennedy was in view of the marksman from the southeast window on the sixth floor of the School Book Depository Building, you mean by that the first position where the marksman saw the rear of the President's stand-in? Mr. SHANEYFELT. That is correct.

  13. If the killer leaves the scene by 1:10... as Rankin also asked... How does it take until 1:44 for the "slipped into the theatre" call from POSTAL on BREWER's urging...? On April 2, 1964: Mr. BELIN - I want to take you back to November 22, 1963. This was the day that President Kennedy was assassinated. How did you find out about the assassination, Mr. Brewer? Mr. BREWER - We were listening to a transistor radio there in the store, just listening to a regular radio program, and they broke in with the bulletin that the President had been shot. And from then, that is all there was. We listened to all of the events. Mr. BELIN - Did you hear over the radio that the President had died? Mr. BREWER - I heard a rumor. They said that----one of the Secret Service men said that the President had died, and said that was just a rumor. Mr. BELIN - Do you remember hearing anything else over the radio concerning anything that happened that afternoon? Mr. BREWER - Well, they kept reconstructing what had happened and what they had heard, and they talked about it in general. There wasn't too much to talk about. They didn't have all the facts, and just repeated them mostly. And they said a patrolman had been shot in Oak Cliff. Dec 6, 1963 Affidavit: The reason I noticed the man in front of the store was because he acted so nervous, and I thought at the time he might be the man that had shot the policeman. Can anyone help by telling us if and/or when the shooting of TIPPIT would have first been broadcast in Dallas area? I can't see how it could be given how few people were aware of it... Jim Ewell tells the story of driving with WESTBROOK (which Westbrook contradicts) and calling his news editor asking for a photographer in Oak Cliff due to the shooting out there.... Was Tippit's shooting broadcast so fast that BREWER could do what he did? Jim shows that CROY couldn't have...
  14. It has been established that Judyth Baker lived at 1032 Marengo St and for 11 weeks between May 10th and July 26th 1963 rode to Reily Coffee every morning on a bus WITH OSWALD, worked as a bad secretary to Reily's VP Monahan, and then rode the bus home WITH OSWALD. It was also established that BAKER was to perform a summer internship for Dr. Mary SHERMAN at the Ochsner Med Center in New Orleans whereby her superiors would help her gain entry to Tulane Univ. Since BAKER is at REILY all day either en route there or back home with OSWALD, or working for VP Monahan.... when did she have time and how did she attend the Dr. SHERMAN internship? Here are the key locations for that summer... 4907 Magazine, 1032 Marengo, 640 Magazine (around corner from 544 Camp) and the Ochsner Med Center miles in the opposite direction. Here are the facts: From her blog - but now removed - was a detailed biography.. which included the following passage: Baker documented how cover jobs were arranged for herself and Oswald, where they spent approximately half their time. Though she was a slow typist, Baker said arrangements were made to hire her as a secretary for former FBI agent William I. Monahan, Wm. B. Reily Coffee Company’s Vice President of Security, Finance and Field Sales. After moving into nearby apartments the same week, Baker and Oswald rode the same bus to and from work together the next eleven weeks. Both Baker and Oswald began their employment on the same day, at a (then) small subsidiary company, Standard Coffee, owned by Reily, where their background reports were laundered and Baker was taught how to handle the Vice President’s secretarial duties. A week later, the two new employees were transferred together to Reily’s main company. WC documents support these facts For those unaware of the details, Baker was at the Univ of Florida with the help of JFK groomsman GEORGE SMATHERS who provided Baker funds as well as "cover jobs" to account for the income. From yet another site that presents and supports Judy's story, http://www.jfkmurdersolved.com/judyth.htm In the Spring of 1963, Ochsner offered her a summer internship at Ochsner Clinic in New Orleans, under the direction of the noted cancer research specialist, Dr. Mary S. Sherman, with the promise that she would receive a scholarship for early entry into Tulane Medical School that Fall. Her bus ticket shows she arrived in New Orleans a few days before Lee Harvey Oswald, in mid-April, 1963, two weeks before she was to begin her internship in Dr. Sherman's bone cancer lab. So the reason Judyth Vary (she weds BAKER later in New Orleans while supposedly having this affair with Lee Harvey) goes to New Orleans in the first place is the work with Dr. Mary Sherman at the Ochsner Med Center. From Mid-April until May 4th Baker has no known address (unless it's in the book), worked at the ROYAL CASTLE restaurant as what - a chasier??? (the location was used by the FBI to spy on Carols Marcello)... when on the night of the 4th of May she claims : from her bio: on May 4, 1963 Baker turned to Oswald after she was evicted in the middle of the night due to a police raid from her rented room. The problem here is that Oswald was staying at LILLIAN MURRET's house on May 4th, a Saturday. Mrs. MURRET - No, he didn't get them out. He said he just wanted to put up there for a few days, you see, because he was trying to find a job, he told me, and then he said he would send for Marina, his wife, and the child. and I asked him to tell us what she looks like, you know, to describe her, and he said, "Well, she's just like any other American housewife." He said, "She wears shorts," and so forth, just like any other American housewife, and he said he would have to have a newspaper so he could scan the want ads and try to find himself a job, and so every morning he would get up and go through the newspaper looking for a job, and he would go out every morning with his newspaper, and he wouldn't come back until the afternoon, until supper time. I had supper anywhere from 5:30 to 6 o'clock, and he was there on time every day for supper, and after supper he didn't leave the house. He would sit down about 6:30 or 7 o'clock, and look at some television programs, and then he would go right to bed, and he did that every day while he was at the house, and so then on the first Sunday he was there, he was talking--we were talking about relatives, and he said to me, "Do you know anything about the Oswalds?" and I said, no, I said that I didn't. I said, "I don't know any of them other than your father, and I saw your uncle one time." I said, "I don't know anything about the family; I don't know them," so he said, "Well, you know, I don't know any of my relatives." He said, "You are the only one I know." Now, this was on a Sunday, and Lee had come to my house on a Monday. Based on this, Oswald arrived at MURRET's April 29th, Monday... With his "first Sunday" being May 5th... the very next day after JUDYTH supposedly "Turns to him" upon her eviction from wherever she was living... (this is the same woman RECRUITED at 19 to work on bone Cancer research with the premier scientists in the country... for whom SMATHERS took a personal interest providing funds and cover... yet here she is working at a FBI front doing who-knows-what, living who-knows-where - yet in a place that is susceptible to being RAIDED?? Why in the world would a 19 year old waitress/cashier/covert researcher be raided and evicted in the first place? According to Ruth Paine though, Oswald buys tickets for he and Marina for New Orleans on April 23rd, then refunds Marina's on the 24th so she can stay with Ruth. Mrs. PAINE - That is right. And he then bought a ticket, he bought a ticket for Marina, I mean I was thinking, while he was in the bus station, and suggested that it would be a very difficult thing for a pregnant woman with a small child to take a 12-hour, 13-hour bus trip to New Orleans, and suggested that I drive her down with June. Mr. JENNER - You volunteered this? Mrs. PAINE - I volunteered this, and suggested further that instead of her staying at her--at the apartment, as was planned at that time, while waiting to hear from him, that she come and stay at my house where he would reach us by phone, and where she would have someone else with her while she waited to hear if he got work. Mr. JENNER - This was the conversation between you and Lee Harvey Oswald? Was it in English or in Russian? Mrs. PAINE - Probably in Russian. I would think so, because I wanted her to understand. Mr. JENNER - Was Marina along? Mrs. PAINE - She was present. Mr. JENNER - She was present; I see. Representative FORD - This took place where, in the car? Mrs. PAINE - Probably in the bus station--in the car near the bus station. He then took the bus ticket back, returned it, and got the money. With Oswald leaving late at night the 24th and arriving in New Orleans the 25th... his whereabouts until he calls LILLIAN on the 29th is a mystery. After BAKER gets evicted late Saturday night May 4th it is unknown where SHE stays as it was not with Oswald and she wouldn't find the Marengo Apartment until the following week. No matter... somehow she moves into an apartment at 1032 Marengo... a few blocks down from 4907 Magazine a a block or two from the Magazine-line bus stop. Her internship with Dr Sherman would start - based on her stating she was a couple weeks early - in early May... So rather than rent a room near the lab... She claims that they found their apartments that same week - yet Oswald does not learn about his job until May 9th, Thursday with his first day of work on May 10th, Friday. He was so excited to have gotten this job he immediately went out to find an apartment by visiting a friend of Lee's mother, Myrtle Evans who in turn calls her friend Vicky Maynard who in turn shows Oswald Mrs. MURRET - Did I say anything about him speaking to her in Russian? Mr. JENNER - Yes. Mrs. MURRET - No; I didn't, but I did wonder about it, here was a man speaking in Russian who was an American, and he had had his wife over in this country for a year and a half, he said, and I did wonder why he didn't try to teach her English, but anyway, he called her after he got the job, and he got right off the phone and said, "I am going out and look for an apartment." So sure enough he found an apartment the very first day, and he came back and he said, "I have found an apartment," and I think it was $65 a month, he said the rent was. Mrs. EVANS - Well, whatever date that was, that was the next time I saw him. I don't know if it was April or May, or even March; I don't know what date it was, but I got the apartment for him, and he moved in on the day he rented it, or the next day, I think. Mr. JENNER - He moved in on the 10th; would that be about right; the day after he rented the apartment? Mrs. EVANS - Well, if he rented it on the 9th, then that would be about right. He moved in the day after, I think it was. Mr. JENNER - On the 9th of May? Mrs. EVANS - I guess so; yes. That's when I saw him, on the 9th of May, and then he moved in on the 10th. ...so I told him I would help him look for a place; so I rang up this friend of mine, and I asked her, I said, "Vickie, do you happen to know where I can rent an apartment for a young couple with one little baby?" and she said, "Yes; Myrtle, I will take children. This is a little duplex," she said, and she said, "This is a nice little apartment, and I think they will like it," and I said , "How much?" and she said, "$65," and I said, "Well, he can't spend too much; he is just getting a new job." Mr. JENNER - What's her name? Mrs. EVANS - Mrs. Maynard--Vickie Maynard. Mrs. EVANS - So she said, "Myrtle, bring him over, and I'll see you in about 10 minutes," and I said, "We'll come up and see it," so we got in the car and went up and looked at it, but it wasn't too impressive. It was an upper, and they had no laundry facilities, or anything. They did have a little spare room that he could have made into a nursery for the baby, but Lee wasn't satisfied with it after we looked at it. He told me that he would rather get something on the first floor, and with laundry facilities, having the baby and all, so I said, "Well, come on, Lee; I don't know anybody that will take children," I said, "but we will Just ride up and down the streets and see what we can find." So we rode in and out and all around Baronne and Napoleon and Louisiana Avenue, and Carondelet, you know, just weaving in and out the streets, and looking for any signs of apartments for rent, so we finally rode down Magazine Street, and I said, "You might as well get as close to your work as possible if you are going to get an apartment." (DJ: Strangely though, they drive AWAY from Reily since "Baronne and Napoleon and Louisiana Avenue, and Carondelet" are to the EAST of 4907 Magazine) Furthermore, for someone having just met their TRUE LOVE (JVB says she turned to Oswald on May 4th after being evicted - more details below) and enjoying the freedoms from boyfriends/wives as Judyth's intended was still in Florida while Marina was still with Ruth... Does it make any sense that Oswald would immediately send for Marina while just starting an affair with Judyth? Mr. JENNER - Had you learned in the meantime that he had a job with the Reily Coffee Co.? Mrs. EVANS - Yes. He told me that he had just got a job with the Reily Coffee Co., and that he wanted his wife to come over here. In fact, he was going to phone her to come over that Saturday, I believe he said. Mr. JENNER - Did he say what kind of job he had with Reily? Mrs. EVANS - No; he just told me he was going to work for the Reily Coffee Co., and that he had been staying at Lillian's, and that he was anxious for his wife to come to New Orleans, and he said a friend was going to drive her over here; so we were coming down Magazine Street, and all of a sudden he said, "Oh, there's a sign," and I said, "Good," so I pulled up around the corner, and we got out and read the sign, and then we went up and rang the doorbell, and they showed us two apartments, and this one apartment was very good for the money. To recap on just this one salient point... BAKER and Oswald MUST MEET prior to May 4th or else how would she know how to reach out to him? BAKER and Oswald begin their love affair right away It was through this amazing coincidence that Lee thought I knew so much. He was standing behind me [at the post office] for general delivery, April 26, when I went to get a letter from the general delivery. As I got the letter, I reached for it, and dropped the newspaper, and when Lee picked it up, without realizing it, I thanked him in Russian. I was always practicing Russian (which I’d been required to learn to level of conversational by my doctors, etc – and which is on record at Manatee (then Jr.) Community College–) – so now Lee heard me saying, “Karashaw, tavarish!” in Russian, and he answered me quickly, “That’s not a very wise thing to do, to be speaking Russian in a place like this.” That did it, we began talking together. The little speech bubble at the end is the footnote source for this information: E-mail to 10 people dated November 16, 2000. IOW - the source for them meeting is JUDYTH BAKER's own words.. and nothing else. that her dates and activities conflict at every turn and with every witness is simply par for the JVB course. Anna LEWIS spoke on camera with JUDYTH in the room about when she and Judy and their men would go out together... She repeats this more than once and both before and after the camera stops filming... At 1:45 - "In about Feb 1962, I met Lee Harvey Oswald in the Park" (by Banister's place where she went for a date with he husband to be David Lewis, a friend of Jack Martin who worked for Banister.) At 2:53 she says in April 1962 they left New Orleans but returned again later in 1962 when she sees LEE come into the restaurant where she worked and simply would not acknowledge her.. She claims and restates that SHE MET LEE OSWALD BETWEEN FEB AND APRIL 1962 IN RELATION TO GUY BANISTER, JACK MARTIN AND DAVID LEWIS. On February 15, 1962 - in the presence of M/M Oswald, June Lee Oswald Lee Harvey Oswald's daughter was born: February 15, 1962 IN MINSK with Lee there as well. BAKER must know a way to contact OSWALD at the MURRETS yet LILLIAN says nothing of a middle of the night call/visit on May 4th. and so every morning he would get up and go through the newspaper looking for a job, and he would go out every morning with his newspaper, and he wouldn't come back until the afternoon, until supper time. I had supper anywhere from 5:30 to 6 o'clock, and he was there on time every day for supper, and after supper he didn't leave the house. He would sit down about 6:30 or 7 o'clock, and look at some television programs, and then he would go right to bed, and he did that every day while he was at the house, and so then on the first Sunday he was there, he was talking--we were talking about relatives, and he said to me, "Do you know anything about the Oswalds?" and I said, no, I said that I didn't. I said, "I don't know any of them other than your father, and I saw your uncle one time." I said, "I don't know anything about the family; I don't know them," so he said, "Well, you know, I don't know any of my relatives." He said, "You are the only one I know." On Sunday May 5th, Oswald - instead of spending the day after JUDYTH BAKER WAS EVICTED with her, decides to call all the Oswalds in the phone book finally locating HAZEL OSWALD the 2nd wife of William Oswald who was Lee Oswald's Uncle - like Dutch Murret on Lee's mother's side - Lee's father's brother. With this love affair in the earliest days one would think he'd want to spend every waking moment with his new love... but he did not. so we have to wonder... If BAKER's story is truthful, who did she "turn to" on May 4th...while Lee Harvey Oswald was with the Murrets? and what was the outcome ? Where did BAKER stay the 5th, 6th ...until she moved to 1032 Marengo?
  15. thanks Daniel... here is a visual as well... You'll also notice there was something fishy with the French St address... Strange that Lillian would get it backward... In 1954 and 1963 (and now) the address was 757 French... So they must have changed FROM 809 to 757 and not the other way around... Is this supposed to be a double cover story? Both Reily and Ochsner/Sherman - so she could do this clandestine research at "Ferrie's underground cancer research lab"... yet she is so fond of saying how they rode the bus too and from Reily together for almost 3 months... Has anyone read enough of her book to know when and where she spent ANY TIME with Dr. Sherman or at the Ochsner Med Center?? Thx... DJ

    The Minox Camera

    John also said it was much heavier than it should have been... like it was filled with cement
  18. Adding a little context... There are numerous sightings of "Oswald" in the hours after 12:30. What remains strange is the removal of 87 and 78 from their patrol areas to move up into Oak Cliff... yet no orders for any patrolmen to cover areas 78 & 87... They expected crime in Oak Cliff but not in the southern areas? Steve Thomas produced this great map image for us... Patrol area 87 is the furthest south (under the "W") and quite a way from Elm/Houston. We do not hear from #97 after 12:41... How can they not know who worked in that area... ?? Car 87 (Nelson) is sent from Elm/Houston to Patrol area 97 yet no one was taken from that area.. and patrolman #97 remains unidentified ?? 1:19 87 (Ptm. R.C. Nelson) 87 1:19 Dispatcher 87 1:19 87 (Ptm. R.C. Nelson) I'm in my car here at Elm and Houston. Do you want me over there? 1:19 Dispatcher 87, report to 4340 West Davis at the service station for information regarding suspect on this Signal 19 of the President. 1:19 87 (Ptm. R.C. Nelson) 4340 the El Chico is located at 500 N. Beckley Whaley's handwritten affidavit mentions the Oswald drop-off point as 500 N Beckley the Sheriff sub-station is at 500 N Beckley Igor Vaganov who looks like Oswald is a main suspect given the evidence turned up and his location relative to 500 N Beckley, the TIDY LADY (where yet another Oswald was seen) and the Texas theater

    The Minox Camera

    As you know, John did a lot of work related to the DPD/FBI inventories to determine which of the 455 items numbered were part of the 250 or so items taken Friday night by SA Drain. John also told us about the cement filled Minox at the Archives... As I try to show below, Hill did not amend 11192-G related to the Minox camera... and in numerous places, copied and repeated numerous times is reference to a MINOX CAMERA and related film and exposed images.... the FBI realized he shouldn't have a Minx camera with a seriel # signifying it was not sold to the public The image at the bottom of this post shows some of the first photos Oswald took from Hawaii in August 1957. A Minox standard size image is 3.25" x 2.25"... https://www.bluemooncamera.com/Minox_Frequently_Asked_Questions.php That length/width ratio is 1.44. The P3 image is measured in Photoshop with a L/W ratio of 1.48.... It appears as if LEE had a Minox very early which had to be given to Harvey to substantiate his journey thru the Marines which the FBI created.... Does it make much sense that Oswald would leave this "spy camera" at the Paine's? btw - there was never mention of a Minox camera CASE Maybe I am looking at the wrong inv page... is there a newer one than this as there is Hill's name and the Minox listed as #375 with 7 other items.

    Early Draft of LIONION installation on 9/27/63

    Those 2 signatures were done one right after the other according to DURAN. They're not the same by any stretch. As to the camera... they claim it was installed and operational on Sept 27... focused on the Cuban Embassy... If Oswald had returned after 4pm, there should be photos... More importantly, I was trying to get across that LIENVOY reports covering Sept 1963 do not mention any of these calls on either Friday or Saturday while specifically stating the phones Oswald would have used were indeed tapped. The September Summary reports were done on October 8 - the day the proverbial merde hits the fan...
  22. Yes... the camera trained on the Cuban Consulate was put into place and tested on September 27, 1963. https://www.archives.gov/files/research/jfk/releases/docid-32371757.pdf What I find interesting about this early draft is the insistence of removing any parts about the Cuban Consulate's hours (10am-2pm) and then reconciles Oswald coming back and being let in after 4pm "since he was there earlier"... Or the fact that both the Soviet and Cuban embassies are closed on Saturday September 28th. Finally, the camera would have been tested for 4 days - per the memo. Fri, Mon, Tues & Wed. yet since the Oct 1 transcript only describes a "CALL" The only purpose for this "CALL" it appears, was to establish a connection between the caller OSWALD and the Consul KOSTIKOV... With LITAMIL-9 helping with the identification for LIONION... this report states that the possibility of catching OSWALD on Day 1 was remote.... FWIW

    Early Draft of LIONION installation on 9/27/63

    Not so much an exception as standing procedures...: While photographic coverage may have been unavailable... LIENVOY was still recording every call in and out of the Soviet Embassy... CORNWELL - Let's just talk hypothetically for a moment. Is there any chance that he was at the Consulate on more than one day?TIRADO - No. I read yesterday, an article in the Reader's digest, and they say he was at the Consulate on three occasions. He was in Friday, Saturday, and Monday...That's not true, that's false. CORNWELL - All right. Let's try a different hypothetical. If the one in the Reader's Digest is definitely wrong, is it possible that he first came on like a Thursday, and then came back on a Friday?TIRADO - No, because I am positively sure about it. That he came in the same day. CORNWELL - During this period was your normal work week, did it include Saturdays? Tirado Yes. Cornwell Is it possible that, in addition to his visits on Friday, he also came back the following day on Saturday mourning?TIRADO - No.CORNWELL - How can you be sure of that?TIRADO - Because, uh, I told you before, that it was easy to remember, because not all the Americans that came there were married with a Russian woman, they have live(d) in Russian and uh, we didn't used to fight with those people because if you, they came for going to Cuba, so apparently they were friends, no? So we were nice to them with this man we fight, I mean we had a hard discussion so we didn't want to have anything to do with him. I think this is what you refer to Jim: CORNWELL - Did Azcue work on Saturdays?TIRADO - Yes, we used to work in the office but not for the public.CORNWELL - Was there a guard, was there a guard out here at the corner near number seven on your diagram on Saturdays?TIRADO - Excuse me?CORNWELL - Was there a doorman out near the area that you marked as number seven, on the diagram?TIRADO - Yes, but on Saturday he never let people ...CORNWELL - Never let people in.TIRADO - No.CORNWELL - Not even if they came up to the doorman and didn't speak Spanish? And were very insistent?TIRADO - No, because they could answer or something. They could ask me for instance, no ? by the inter-phone. And if indeed OSWALD was at the Soviet Embassy on Saturday... he would have been photographed and reported on contemporaneously.. ie in the Sept LI- Summary Reports. If an American named OSWALD had spoken on any one of these lines - let alone that he supposedly called the Attache first then the Embassy - you'd think it would be in the contemporaneous reports from that time period. Now we must remember this is the day PHILLIPS ARRIVED - GOODPASTURE/LADILLINGER sends the Oswald memo to HQ, and this summary report with activities from Oct 1963. Second sentence under #4 is the single and only mention of an American contacting the Soviet Embassy in MX. This report is dated Nov 7, 1963. Here is a cleaner version with the date https://www.archives.gov/files/research/jfk/releases/docid-32343402.pdf One might think the CIA was playing down the Oswald contacts... yet the memos sent on Oct 10th kinda destroys that thought... Question remains... why are the contemporaneous INTERNAL reports about MX so thin on Oswald details yet the October Cables from Goodpasture, Scott & Mann are so rich in detail. Looks to me like the evidence was created after the fact... given what the CIA knew about Oswald by Nov 7th, the Oct LIENVOY report should have been chock-full of juicy details much like the paragraph in the Sept Summary report on the CZECH female calling for KUZNETSOV. Transcripts include the calls on Friday... and again on Saturday. This is the call Sylvia says never happened.... and the photos of MYSTERY MAN attributed to Oct 1 where first off not Oswald and second, on Oct 2 and 4 and 15. CORNWELL - Do you have a distinct recollection with respect to telephone calls to the Russian Consulate, was it just one call or was it more than one call?TIRADO - Only one.CORNWELL - Just one. The ... I believe I asked you this, but just to be sure, although the application was typed with a carbon to make two copies with one typing, did he have to sign both independently? Or did you allow them to use a carbon to sign the paper?TIRADO - No, no. It was the original.CORNWELL - Two original signatures. All right.TIRADO - Yes.
  24. Exactly.... They finally got it right....
  25. In the same vein... "I'm just a Patsy" is not "I am innocent" but suggests the awareness of a plan where Oswald is the scapegoat... the patsy. I find it impossible that Hoover didn't know... and kept quiet due to our incredible lack of USSR data... and by the way... there is a page 2 of that letter guys (despite it NEVER being shown in search results)... and in June 1960 Hoover is asking about Albert Schweitzer College AND the FBI offers the wrong "last address" given that Oswald filled out the SEPERATION PAPERS in Sept 1959 listing 3124 W 5th St in Ft Worth... The Collinwood address was on the Oct 15, 1956 "Declaration of Parental Consent" (Folsom Ex#1 p35) We are to remember that GORSKY tells us LEE separated from the Marines in March 1959.... the date on this application - March 19,1959.... Mack Osbourne telling us he remembers Oswald's disappointment at not being accepted... The conflicting dates and responses suggests that 2 different people named LEE OSWALD were involved with the ASC and the trip to Minsk... Add to that this account by the Steenbargers and the established fact very little about Oswald's post-marine/pre-Minsk travel makes sense from London's Heathrow to arriving in Minsk.
