Today marks the 53rd Anniversary of the “Oswald” Set-up

Fifty three years ago today, elements of American Intel began setting up Russian-speaking “Lee HARVEY Oswald” to become the future alleged assassin of President John F. Kennedy.

During this month 53 years ago, on...

April 2 – Ruth Paine invited “Lee HARVEY Oswald” and Marina to her home in Irving, TX for “dinner.”

April 10 – Someone took a shot at Ret. Gen. Edwin Walker using a steel-jacketed bullet.

April 24 – “Lee HARVEY Oswald” arrived in New Orleans, LA by bus, having left the Dallas area for no apparent reason other than to become sheep-dipped as a pro-Castro operative.

Anyone care to fill in some more dates? There are plenty of them.

I'll be adding to this list until November 22 of this year.

You might want to add that LHO's brother Robert was born 4/7/34. He went on to pretty much sell his brother out:

3:30 - 3:40 P.M. Robert Oswald, Brother, in Ten-Minute Visit

"I cannot or would not say anything, because the line is apparently tapped. [They were talking through telephones.] . . . I got these bruises in the theater. They haven't bothered me since. They are treating me all right. . . . What do you think of the baby? Well, it was a girl, and I wanted a boy, but you know how that goes. . . . I don't know what is going on. I just don't know what they are talking about. . . . Don't believe all the so-called evidence." When Robert Oswald looked into Lee's eyes for some clue, Lee said to him, "Brother, you won't find anything there. . . . My friends will take care of Marina and the two children." When Robert Oswald stated that he didn't believe the Paines were friends of Lee's, he answered back, "Yes, they are. . . . Junie needs a new pair of shoes."

(Robert Oswald told the Warren Commission, "To me his answers were mechanical, and I was not talking to the Lee I knew.")

Sure, Bob, sure.
