Another Walker article one - "However, according to the BfV the interview does not contain any information attributed to Walker which would indicate that Oswald was the person who attempted to shoot Walker."

David,

Thanks for sharing all these recent JFK Records releases.   This one you shared is particularly amusing, because it contradicts the very LEAD PARAGRAPH of the German article in question.

The interview of General Walker by Helmut Muench for the DNZ on 11/23/1963 (only 18 hours after the JFK assassination) is of special interest to the FBI, because the DNZ published the article in their next weekend issue (11/29/1963) that Oswald was Walker's shooter.

Yet Marina Oswald had not told this to the FBI until 12/03/1963 -- several days later.   Here's the lead paragraph itself:

NB This was released in the 3rd November doc release but I thought it interesting enough to post here.

HSCA Briefing Book says 152 pages on the xls but seems to be 137 pages in the pdf so there is some interesting stuff if you scroll down far enough. The cover sheet only mentions three individuals but there is stuff about other people in here too.

First few pages are about Harry Haler and his reliability as a witness and then on to a crime figure called Harry Hall and connections to Jack Ruby. (pg 1 to 47)

Vincent Lee on Ruby (pg 48)

Antonio De Varona chronology of Castro assassination plots (pg 49 to 60)
-His CRC offices “had been located for a short time in 1962 at the same address as was stamped on some of Lee Harvey Oswald’s FPPC literature, 544 Camp St”

List of objectives of finding out who Antonio de Varona knows which reads like a who’s who of assassination literature (pg 61 to 69 )
De Varona’s organised crime background (pg 70 to 77)

That concludes the pages on the three people named on the file cover sheet but there is a lot more now below

Maurice Martineau Secret Service retired Chicago HSCA interview notes 1978 (pg 78 to 88)
-relates a telephone threat in Chicago “that Kennedy was going to be killed when he got to Jackson Street”
-docs relating to Thomas Mosely who told them that a Cuban told him “We now have plenty of money - our new backers are Jews - as soon as we (or they) take care of Kennedy” the day before the assassination (pg 89 to 90)
-incomplete doc appears to be missing first pages on Martineau’s investigation into the Klein’s money order and the Carcano (pg 91 to 94)
-more on Mosley (pg 95 to 105)
-hard to read - last paragraph almost looks to me to be “gone to the Leslie Welding Company where the patrol checks of Lee H Oswald were examined” ?? (pg 105 to 107)
-Treasury department report on Kleins and the money order (pg 108 to 109)

Forrest Sorrels - bio and refusal to talk to the HSCA (pg 110 to 112)
-written report by Sorrels on questioning of Ruby on 24th November 1963 and why Ruby shot LHO.(pg 113 to 116)
-memo from May 1964 on the Cellar coffee house in Fort Worth (pg 117)
-written report by Sorrels 30th November 1963 on the meetings and preparation for JFK’s visit (pg 118 to 119)
-statement of Sorrels 29th November 1963 on the motorcade and hearing the shots “I heard what sounded like a rifle shot” (pg 119 to 120)
-rough draft memo from Mr Griffin and Mr Hubert on meeting Sorrels 22nd March 1964 - thought this was quite an interesting read - He was unwilling to state that he thought Ruby was telling him the truth. Ruby’s entrance to the basement to shoot Oswald and mistakes in handling the transfer. “Sorrels stated he was present during the latter part of the questioning of Oswald and that he was of the opinion that Oswald was beginning to loosen up” “a certain amount of ill will between the Dallas Police department and the Bureau” “Mr Griffin asked Mr Sorrels if it was his understanding that Hosty would indicate that the story he would give the Commission was a fabrication and Mr Sorrels indicated that he understood it could be Hosty’s attitude. He also indicated that he and perhaps others believed that if there were to be a fall guy within the Bureau, it would be Hosty” Sadly it tapers of and is incomplete but if you want to read it for yourself it’s pgs 121 to 124.

Finally the last section is about James Wilcott of the CIA. “Wilcott identified Jerry Fox, a CIA officer in the Soviet Russia SR Division of the Tokyo station, as one person who specifically discussed the Oswald project with him” (pg 125 to 137)

From the July release previously withheld in full about Marina. HSCA NBR and hardly legible in places. The first page you can make out "It is my firm belief that such further debriefing of Mrs Oswald is necessary because of numerous mistakes in her Soviet documentation, suspicious gaps and discrepancies in her story regarding her life in the USSR: and some peculiarities in her correspondence with addresses in the USSR, which strongly suggest that some form of open code was employed between here and her correspondents in the USSR" 

At the bottom are four legible pages and some letters "strongly suggest that some form of open code was employed between Marina and her correspondents in the USSR. Following are some examples:" Needless to say thats where the story ends and there are no examples...
