That clip is from PBS Frontline: Who Was Lee Harvey Oswald - which is definitely lone gunman-endorsing, the Oswald's Ghost of its decade. It has the virtues of having nice Dallas and NO footage, plus some historic footage.

Priscilla McMillan puts in her customary appearance as a lip-smacking old pornographer.

PS - How long has it been that Volkmar Schmidt has been telling his tale of how he "inadvertently" turned Oswald into a General Walker-hater? Did no investigating body or police department ever question him about conspiracy in the Walker shooting?

David, I agree that there are imperfections in the intentions of the producers, yet I find that the evidence speaks louder than the spin that Robert Blakey and Priscilla McMillan tried to place on it.

For one thing, we get solid evidence here that Lee Harvey Oswald clearly used the sophisticated photographic equipment at Jaggars-Chiles-Stovall.

For another thing, we get solid evidence that Robert Blakey was afraid of the Backyard Photographs. He knew that they present obvious evidence of a Conspiracy if the evidence of any fakery was proven -- and it is easily proven (as far as I can see today, pending my own technical analysis to reproduce the experiments of Major John Pickard).

Blakey obviously lacked the presence of mind to connect the dots -- Oswald at Jaggars-Chiles-Stovall means that we can have faked Backyard Photographs and still maintain that Marina Oswald took the first (one and only one) Backyard Photograph. Blakey failed to see that.

Now -- one might suggest that since I maintain that Marina and Lee Harvey Oswald made the Backyard Photographs, that I am agreeing with the Warren Commission's ridiculous conclusion that Lee Harvey Oswald was the "lone nut" killer of JFK. On the contrary. I disagree sharply with both the Warren Commission and with Robert Blakey.

Rather -- my theory has Oswald as well as George De Mohrenschildt, Volkmar Schmidt and Michael Paine all guilty (in different degrees) of plotting and attempting to kill General Walker. So, Lee Oswald was certainly not a "lone nut" even in this activity. He had accomplices.

My theory also challenges tradition when I insist that just because Oswald tried to kill Walker, that is no proof at all that Oswald killed JFK. There is no direct connection. Walker was on the extreme right. JFK was more left-leaning. There were very different shooters shot at these very different leaders.

I want to empasize this point as strongly as I can: JUST BECAUSE OSWALD SHOT AT WALKER, THAT IS NO PROOF THAT OSWALD SHOT AT JFK. In other words, JUST BECAUSE OSWALD SHOT AT WALKER, THAT IS NO PROOF THAT OSWALD SHOT AT JFK.

As for Priscilla McMillan's faulty opinion that Lee Oswald kept a P.O. Box because he was ashamed of the Communist newspapers he was reading -- that makes no sense because Oswald had no problem getting in the newspaper, radio and even TV by handing out Communist FPCC flyers.

It is far more likely that Oswald kept a PO Box in every city in which he lived because he was getting covert orders and secret payments from the FBI, ONI, CIA and other agencies that thew him a little money here and there for odd jobs.

The evidence suggests to me that Oswald wanted to be a secret agent, and he worked diligently toward that end. If George De Mohrenschildt had not mocked Oswald by toying with his mind along with Volkmar Schmidt, it is possible that Oswald would have eventually become a capable secret agent.

We cannot ignore the evidence from Marina, however, that Oswald began to beat her shortly after he took the job with Jaggars-Chiles-Stovall. The stress on Oswald was probably higher during this period than any other period -- he was pressured by George DM, Schmidt and Paine, probably, to murder ex-General Walker. I think that was the source of his stress. He couldn't take it. He snapped and tried to kill Walker -- in order to "please" De Mohrenschildt, Schmidt and Paine.

When George De Mohrenschildt correctly guessed that Oswald was the shooter, he did tell somebody -- his friends the Voshinins. Mrs. Voshinin said she told the FBI right away. Thus ex-General Walker could have learned as early as Easter Sunday 14 April 1963, that Lee Harvey Oswald was his 10 April 1963 shooter. This is when Walker decided that Oswald was going to be his patsy, IMHO.

As for your question about Volkmar Schmidt's confessions -- I believe that he might have first told William Kelly (who is on this FORUM) in a personal invterview back in the 1990's.
