If Oswald Was an Intelligence Agent of Some Sort, How Was He Manipulated Into Being a Patsy?


Recommended Posts

Oswald was a patsy just as he said..... "the reason I'm being arrested is that I went to the Soviet Union, I'm a patsy." but then the reason Oswald was a patsy was that he had gone to the Soviet Union.

Could it be so simple? Should we look at the whole statement and not just the last three words?

I belive we should absorb all the words contained in Oswald's patsy statement and that we should examine closely all the events that lead to Oswald's travel to the Soviet Union. Perhaps Oswald's speech at Spring Hill College just weeks before the assassination is an indication of just how much Oswald's trip to the Soviet Union and perhaps his involvement in the failure of the Paris Summit was playing on Oswald's mind at the time! And perhaps there were those (like Richard Helms who was monitoring Oswald's movements prior to the assassination) who knew that Oswald was bitter about being used as a patsy.

Just thoughts,

Jim Root

Dear Mr. Root,

I've always thought very highly of your posts on this forum, and continue to do so.

I agree with you that two of Oswald's most significant utterances, "I'm being taken in because I lived in Russia" and "I'm a patsy!" can be seen to shed light on each other and, when taken together, synergistically create something more profound. Specifically, he seems to be saying that he finally realized that he was a patsy, and furthermore, that he realized that he must have been chosen as a/the patsy because he appeared to have communist sympathies. His very mentioning of Russia raises the possibility that he thought (or here's an intriguing idea--somehow knew??) that the conspirators were trying to blame the assassination on the USSR.

I find very interesting the fact that Oswald arrived in Russia at almost the exact instant that Russian Colonel Popov was being arrested in Moscow as a U.S. spy, and also the obvious fact that Gary Power's U-2 spy plane was (apparently) shot down over the USSR while LHO was living there. Let us not forget the mysterious Robert Webster affair, either, nor the fact that Oswald worked in a large radio factory in Minsk, perhaps collecting (or thinking he was collecting) important "Soviet Realities" data....

Mr. Root, believe it or not I'm not trying to give you a "hard time." But, being a very lazy JFK assassination dilettante, I would appreciate your reminding me how it is that we know that the CIA's Richard Helms was monitoring Oswald's movements before the assassination.

Thank you,

Thank's Malcolm.

I'm pretty sure he was in the D-day Op so that, if so, accounts for France and Italy leaves open the possibility that, along with others of interest, and things like Gladio, the Strategy of Tension, The Cairo Bureau, the OSS in Italy, Angleton, The Black Prince, and even R.R. Carr fits into a mix of avenues to follow, in particularly if Walker was near Cassini and what his supposed unit was doing at the time of Anzio and of course who he was connected to then which of course could beg a shift in focus for some. So, imo, it is important to resolve what his Italy period was.

I've come across apparently conflicting data like there was a Walker near Monte Cassini but not The Walker or it was two Walkers and The Walker was yet on the promotional ladder. or...

John,this site seems to have something relating to Major General Edwin Walker and Anzio.

During World War II, Walker commanded a subunit of the Canadian-American First Special Service Force in the invasion of Anzio, Italy in January 1944. In August 1944, Walker succeeded Robert T. Frederick as the unit's commanding officer.

http://www.enotes.co...ic/Edwin_Walker

Hmmm, it would be good to lay this baby to rest if only to move on.

The things that were happening during the time of the landing at Anzio led in a strange way (message/code mix-up supposedly) to it's failure. The people whose interests were served by its failure were not only the Germans in having more time eliminating left wing northern partisans but also of course non German anti-Communists. Like J. J. Angleton* for example and factions in the Cairo Bureau (which perhaps tenuously has something to do with the Raten-Lines to the Middle East after the war, and perhaps less tenuously to the tradeoff of Greece by Stalin (which probably has something to do with what's going on in Greece today)).

Whatever ones take on events, here is an opportunity to look at an early Walker who appears in a somewhat mysterious milieu. Is it possible to get detailed service records from this time?

Indeed, was he .. wait for it... OSS ?

PS I think it has been established I'm nuts so I reserve the right to ask nutty questions.

edit add * who shielded the Black Prince after Italy was liberated. Also Gladio and the Strategy of Tension, imo, is relevant here.(emphasis added by T. Graves)

John,

If memory serves, Douglas Valentine in The Strength of the Wolf has the young OSS officer James Jesus Angleton protecting some Sicilian and Sicilian-American narcotics-running mafiosi during WW II in exchange for intel which benefited Operation Husky.

The very idea of a mobbed-up Angleton working in concert with a mobbed-up J. Edgar Hoover fascinates me because JJ"s being mafia-connected or influenced would help explain why he wanted to get rid of the Kennedys. JJA must have known that JFK was getting ready to pull out of the French Connection's heroin-production region of S.E. Asia. And, of course, RFK had been coming down hard on Angleton's mafia buddies in the U.S.

As John Newman says in "Oswald and the CIA", Angleton was the only person capable of 1) planning the assassination, 2) managing the assassination, and 3) orchestrating the cover up.

I can see JJA doing this by himself or perhaps in cooperation with the John J. McCoy/Maxwell Taylor/General Walker crew.

Sincerely,

The evidence does not say he did it by himself.

Nor does it say he did it out of any sympathy or duty to the Mob.

Also, since I really admire John's work, and used it a lot in my book, he does not really say what you have him saying.

Dear Jimbo,

Please read or re-read the final sentence in my post.

Did I say Angleton did it by himself, period? Hint: No, I didn't. And, even if he did do it without McCone, McCloy, Taylor, Walker, etc (and certain people who were working for them), he still would have needed the help of certain other people like Anne Goodpasture, Ann Egeter, William Harvey, George Joannides, etc, wouldn't he?

Jim, I think you've hit on an important point -- that Lee Oswald was selected as the patsy for the JFK murder mainly because he had lived in the USSR.

As a secondary confirmation of his Communist affiliation, we also have Lee Oswald pretending to be an FPCC officer in New Orleans in the summer of 1963. This charade was so visible that we find evidence today in newspaper clippings, police reports, radio recordings and television recordings.

We know it was a charade because the FPCC never had a chapter in New Orleans. Also, we know that Oswald lied about having members in this fake chapter of the FPCC in New Orleans -- the only member was his own alias, Alek J. Hidell.

It seems to me that the fakery of the New Orleans FPCC is so blatant, yet even today people speak about Oswald as being a genuine Communist and a genuine exponent of the FPCC. They use his fake posturing in New Orleans as their main evidence of this.

In any case -- my theory holds that Lee Oswald's stay in the Soviet Union, plus his posturing as an FPCC officer in New Orleans, marked him as the patsy, especially to people for whom any contact with Communists was considered contagious.

This, then, leads me to Harry Dean's account -- he claims that ex-General Walker, along with Loran Hall and various members of the John Birch Society, identified Lee Harvey Oswald as the patsy of their particular plot to kill JFK (one of many such plots) immediately after Lee Oswald's FPCC charade in New Orleans.

In any case -- my hypothesis holds that LHO was an extreme right wing activist with what may be called a napoleonic type complex who played with the big boys and got burned. A patsy. Not that dissimilar, except in stature, to Walker.

John, I believe my theory is fairly close to your own -- LHO was an extreme rightist who hung out with Cuban Exiles (like Carlos Bringuier and Ed Butler) and ex-military men serving the John Birch Society -- men like Loran Hall, Larry Howard and Gerry Patrick Hemming.

These men, in turn, were seen in proximity to ex-General Edwin Walker in the summer and autumn of 1963. All of these men had napoleonic complexes, as do most rightists, IMHO.

Yet what distinguished LHO from Walker was not merely his stature, but their spider-and-fly relationship -- Walker was the spider and Oswald was the fly.

Harry Dean reported that the John Birch Society identified Lee Harvey Oswald as a pesky Communist FPCC officer in New Orleans in late August 1963, and General Walker flew into Southern California to tag Lee Harvey Oswald as the patsy to their plot for the "last resort" salvation of the USA from the Communist-dominated JFK Administration.

A sacred oath was ceremoniously adopted by the spider and his quislings, and the fly was doomed from that point forward.

[...]

How would his handlers have kept him away from the windows, if not the outside with the rest of the crowd, while someone he admired so much was driving by?

[...]

I think it's important to question why Oswald remained in the building.

Don,

Three possibilities (so far):

1) He was told to monitor some kind of activity inside the TSBD

2) He was waiting for a phone call

3) He was waiting inside to be paid for his rifle he'd brought to work. "I'll pay you in the lunch room, Lee, right when JFK is going by. That way all the attention will be on JFK and Jackie and no one will be paying any attention to us."

I'd add a #4. I agree that Gerry Patrick Hemming did as he confessed to A.J. Weberman that he did, namely, entice Lee Oswald to bring his rifle to work on 22 November 1963.

Hemming promised Oswald double the value of the rifle, and told Oswald that it was for his friend, who didn't want to be identified -- i.e. it was obviously for a shady purpose. Hemming also confessed that he told Oswald to leave the rifle between boxes on an upper floor and walk away -- the buyer wanted to pick it up unseen.

But I don't think Oswald was waiting for payment at that time. Rather, I think that Oswald remained in the building because he was too slow in putting the pieces together.

That is, Oswald knew he was outside the inner loop -- he knew there was a plot, but he probably expected it at the Trade Mart -- and he didn't believe he was involved at any lower levels. So, he just laid low and played dumb -- as planned.

In other words, Lee Harvey Oswald had absolutely no clue that he was going to be the patsy of this plot until the hour when he screamed that out in the Dallas Police Department hallway, surrounded by reporters.

Paul T - you have found a kindred spirit in John Dolva. How on earth can you justify your contention that Oswald was extreme right winger burned by his political compatriots because of his leftist bonafides? Can you really discount everything written about and by Oswald himself that contradicts that claim? If he was a right winger in fact, masquerading as a leftist, why would the right wingers who did the deed use him as a patsy? Everything Oswald wrote himself, for years, indicates he was an idealistic leftist. His best friends, his wife, his acquaintances, all disagree with you. Paul - can you not imagine any other scenario that would account for Oswald opening a bogus FPCC chapter in New Orleans? There are really only two possibilities that explain that action. Either he was as you say he was, which would mean he created a false identity for several years with literally everyone he knew, or he was making a deliberate public show of his leftist leanings as part of an intelligence operation, which is supported by his asking to speak with local FBI after his New Orleans arrest. Paul - you put so much faith in Marina's sworn testimony. Do you think in a million years she would agree with your view on Oswald? Come on man. You dismiss so much public information when you formulate your viewpoint on Oswald, and its totally unnecessary. It does nothing to promote your theory about Walker. Oswald the right winger tried to kill Walker? Oswald hated JFK? There is literally no evidence other than the words of Volkmar Schmidt to support that view. If Oswald was a rightie why would he try to kill Walker? Why would Walker choose a rightie as a patsy? If Dean is right that Walker chose Oswald, and that Walker knew Oswald tried to kill him, then it is only logical to assume that is because Oswald was a left winger.

"...Oswald was [an] extreme right-winger burned by his political compatriots because of his leftist bonifides."

Works for me, John.

I don't think Oswald was a true left-winger because for some reason I just can't see a left-wing kid's enlisting in the Marine Corps, and trying to do so while still underage at that. That's what I call a "gung ho-ish," super patriot kind of kid. And I don't think he underwent some kind of authentic socio-economic/political transformation while in the Marines, either. I think his left-wing/socialist/Marxist performances were to establish bonifides so that people like Alan Dulles, Richard Helms, James Angleton, William Harvey, Guy Bannister, and/or David Atlee Phillips could use him in their operations. Oswald was happy to do so because it fulfilled his Walter Mitty-ish, "I led Three Lives" psychological needs to be a patriotic, Commie-busting secret agent.

Regardless, I don't see why Oswald's "political compatriots" (reactionary elements of CIA, ONI, CID, etc) would have cared who they burned to further their goals.

--Tommy :sun

Edit: How's this for a weird idea. Maybe Oswald was such a gung-ho, clever (and foolish), super patriot that he figured out a way (maybe with a little help from David Ferrie?) to get into Russia via Finland and become a free lance agent with the hopes of becoming a paid double (or triple?) agent !!

Well, Paul B., I think you and I might have a different idea of what it means to be a left-winger.

You believe you see left-wing ideology in Lee Harvey Oswald's personal writings? I don't see evidence of that.

I realize that Lee Oswald called himself a "Marxist-Leninist" on New Orleans television -- but he didn't sound like one to me in that interview. He sounded like a young Democrat -- maybe -- at best. He didn't sound revolutionary in the slightest to me.

See, Paul B., I know something about the left-wing. I studied them for years. I know the Marxist-Leninist literature, and I've written hundreds of pages of criticism on it (none of which have ever been accepted by an American publisher, but that's another story).

Also, I know something about American Communist behavior in the 20th century; e.g. I know they were social creatures who liked to associate with each other. They mingled with each other and their best friends were inevitably other Communists. They were a tight-knit group.

Based on that, I know also that Lee Harvey Oswald had no Communist friends and no Communist associates in real life. (Letters through the post office do not count -- any wannabe spy can do that.) That's very strong evidence that Lee Harvey Oswald never identified with the left-wing (and probably he was a wannabe double-agent).

Instead, the people Lee Harvey Oswald associated with in New Orleans congregated at 544 Camp Street. That was the hang-out of the most radical right-wing vigilantes in New Orleans at the time. They were linked with the Lake Pontchartrain paramilitary training camp. They were linked with Gerry Patrick Hemming and Interpen (key suspects in the JFK assassination).

When Oswald was seen on New Orleans TV with Carlos Bringuier and Ed Butler, that was no accident -- those were Oswald's known associates in New Orleans -- and the FPCC chapter Oswald was promoting on television was a fake FPCC chapter. Most researchers know that, Paul B., and you know that, too.

So, in my opinion, Paul B., you should (1) explain why Oswald was promoting a fake FPCC chapter on television; and (2) identify what texts in Lee Oswald's personal papers you believe are "left wing." Then I'll compare those texts with actual text from Marx and Lenin, and see if we can find a match. What do you say?

Tom, I agree with you in principle on most of your propositions, for example:

(1) It is absurd that an under-age left-winger would push his way into the Marines during the Cold War. That was the typical behavior of the ultra-right wing.

(2) It is equally absurd to imagine that the Marines would tolerate a Marx-imitating recruit in their ranks. The only rational explanation is that Oswald was getting ONI spy training.

(3) The fact that Oswald studied Russian and even took a Russian exam in the Marines is material evidence of ONI spy training - nothing else.

(4) Oswald was a radar operator at an intelligence base, and had a higher security clearance than most Marine personnel.

(5) Oswald was a dabbler in left-wing literature -- he knew very little about it -- as much as one could get from newspapers on corner news stands during the Cold War. This is consistent with ONI spy training.

(6) Oswald's performance art of FPCC flyer distribution was all an act -- which was finally proven beyond any reasonable doubt in New Orleans when he promoted an FPCC chapter there that *did not exist*. Even the membership was faked.

(7) I especially liked your description: "Oswald was happy to do so because it fulfilled his Walter Mitty-ish, 'I led Three Lives' psychological needs to be a patriotic, Commie-busting secret agent." That, is an apt description, IMHO.

However, Tom, I disagree with your conclusion. You propose that Oswald's Marxist performance art was for the benefit of famous people in the CIA. That remains to be shown.

Also, you lumped togetther a low-level asset like Guy Banister (retired FBI, whisky-soaked rogue) with a high-level asset like James Jesus Angleton (young, high-ranking CIA professional).

The distinctions are sharp-- Oswald's performance art was specifically for Guy Banister. Guy Banister, aided by his bankrollers (mainly Clay Shaw, but also Carlos Marcello), was the paymaster for Lee Harvey Oswald in New Orleans. That's why Oswald spurned his greaser job at the Coffee company.

Oswald was drafted into Guy Banister's operations - and Guy Banister was well-connected with right-wing tyrants in Louisiana such as Leander Perez, Louis P. Davis, Kent Courtney and the Louisiana States Rights Commission -- for whom ex-General Walker was a frequent speaker.

Now, Guy Banister also worked closely with Cuban Exiles like the DRE and Carlos Bringuier -- and Edwin Walker admitted his ties to the DRE as well. They all had one major common goal: KILL FIDEL CASTRO.

The connection of the CIA in all this is their nominal bankrolling of the DRE and of Ed Butler's INCA propaganda organization. But they were funders, and yet the Cuban Exiles were motivated to be their own leaders. I say the CIA was observing Oswald, nothing more (unless I see material evidence).

Further, Tommy, I think your theory errs when you hastily conclude that the right-wingers didn't "care who they burned" when they made Oswald into their patsy.

I propose, on the contrary, that Lee Harvey Oswald was selected *specifically* because of infractions he committed, namely, his shooting at General Walker while under the influence of George De Mohrenschildt and Volkmar Schmidt (and their ilk).

Finally, Tommy, I cannot accept your self-admitted "weird idea" that our rightist Oswald "figured out a way to get into Russia via Finland" as a free-lance agent-volunteer for the CIA to apply for the job of a double-agent."

However, I think you're close -- the material evidence shows clearly that Oswald "figured out a way" to get into Cuba via Mexico. This is the best explanation for the Mexico trip, and for Oswald's frustrated visits to the Cuban and Russian consulates.

Given this, we can easily guess what the rightist Oswald wanted to do in Cuba, namely, KILL FIDEL.

What a shock to Lee Oswald's system when he learned the hard way that all his fake FPCC credentials would not get him instant entry into Cuba as Guy Banister had promised him. He lost his temper.

Yet it was this very failure, IMHO, that freed Oswald to become the patsy in the radical right-wing plot to kill JFK. Perhaps in this way, thought the rightists, the USA will finally invade Cuba and KILL FIDEL.
