"Oswald shot at Walker." .. ?


Recommended Posts

This is how the situation smells to me.

I have recently read about LBJ's knack and M.O. of getting as many hands as possible dirtied-up in underhanded matters. The formation of the WC reflects this as does the host of high level characters visiting Dallas in the days sorrounding the assassination. Perhaps Walker, and maybe his Minutemen, were, at the time, working hard to stay clear of any developing plot. This staged event (the attempt on Walker) could be seen as both dipping him with both a motive to be part of the conspiracy (revenge) and a threat against his aim to stay clear of it. His apparent arrangement of the humiliation of Adlai Stevenson, prior to Kennedy's visit, can be seen as his compliance with the threat. Oswalds purported involvement in the attempt on Walker could have later been twisted into either an attempt to thwart a plot on Kennedy, or,  as it happened, evidence of his (LHO's) willingness to take out some big-shot. All that was needed was Chef George De Mohrenschildt to add the mustard or the mayonnaise to the sandwich that was otherwise ready-to-go.

Cheers,

Mike Clark - how can that be?  Read the earlier posts in this thread.  Nobody cared about the Walker "shooting" until Oswald was dead.  Then all it took was a little drum-beating by those in the know and POOF - you have the so-called Crazy Kid Oswald also shooting at Walker.  And this is supposedly the same person who performed one of the most remarkable shooting feats in world history.

He was so good at it that instead of making it easy on himself, where he could have shot the president at a wide open angle and coming toward him in the car, he instead waits for the car to go AWAY from him.  He's says "Yep! This is how I'm going to do" and fires off two beautifully aimed shots, one piercing the president's upper back, the bullet zigging and then zagging to come out of his throat only to slam into Connally.

Then he fires his second shot that had so much spin on it, it threw the president backward and to the left. But oops, supposedly this world-class marksman did fire off one round that was so bad, it was 50 feet ahead of his target, nicking the curb.

But that's OK because we also know this expert shooter also fired at Walker.  Of course badly missing that target as well.

Not even Hollywood or a hack writer could come up with such an outlandish, silly plot.

I can think of a couple of master propagandist/disinformation specialist/ spy novelist folks/teams who could...... DAP and EHH.

So my working theory, as quoted above, leaves another option. What if Walker set-up this hit himself? That could mean that he had already been invited or cajoled into the same scheme that I posited, with all the same results and requirements; except that the assault on Adlai Stevenson would have been unnecessary. This does, however, leave open the possibility that whoever fired the shot into Walker's window, also managed to get the Manlicher rifle into the TSBD. Perhaps this was a backup patsy.

I'd have to read-up to be sure, but I think the Walker bullet was unidentifiable. That has a convenience in that a back-up patsy could be set-up after the fact by which rifle was ultimately identified as found in the TSBD and which pristine bullet would be found at the hospital.

Walker strikes me as a pathetic figure, and certainly not a plotter; but rather a marker that leads to the plot.

What is principally interesting is the connectivity of Ruth and Michael Paine to Walker. The so called "Walker note" (found by Ruth a week after the assassination in a book), the surveillance photo of Walker's house, and the first person to name Oswald as taking part in the Walker shooting (Michael), all derive from Ruth and Michael Paine. As one researcher wrote: "the entire put upon Quaker charity, Good Samaritan act wears thin in the face of such coincidences".

 Edwin Walker is a "clear beacon" to those responsible for JFK's murder.

Actually..the way it was written in the Report was completely laughable----

Both weapons were shipped on March 20.1012 Oswald kept the rifle in a small storeroom at the Neely Street apartment. He spent long periods of time in the storeroom, which he told Marina she was not to enter.1013 He told her that he intended to use the rifle for hunt-

ing 1014 and that he practiced with it. She saw him leave with it once, and clean it several times.1015 He also posed for two pictures, taken by Marina in the backyard of the Neely apartment, in which he held his rifle and copies of the Worker and the Militant and the revolver was strapped to his belt. He gave one of the pictures to his wife and asked her to keep it for June.1016

Over the weekend of March 9-10, Oswald photographed the alley which runs behind the home of Gen. Edwin Walker, and probably at about the same time he photographed the rear of Walker's home and a nearby railroad track and right-of-way.1017 He prepared and studied a notebook in which he outlined a plan to shoot General Walker, and he looked at bus schedules.1018 He went to the Walker residence on the evening of April 6 or 7, planning to make his attack. However, he changed his plans, hid his rifle nearby, and determined to act on the following Wednesday, April 10, when a nearby church was planning a meeting which, Oswald reasoned, would create a diversion that would help him escape.1019 On Wednesday, Oswald left a note for Marina telling her what to do if he were apprehended. He retrieved his rifle and fired at Walker, but the bullet narrowly missed Walker's head. Oswald secreted his rifle again and took the bus home.1020

When Oswald told Marina what he had done, she became angry and made him promise never to repeat such an act. She testified that she kept his letter, intending to give it to the authorities if he repeated his attempt.

 

It was like they had some kind of an invisible time traveling Doc Brown that went back and saw everything unfold.

General Walker didn't like Kennedy. I gathered that when I went to a *JBS lecture that he gave at some place I forget. I was just an 11th grader. I still have a recording with Walker speeches somewhere here at the house. Anyway.. if Ruth found something after the assassination mentioned above by Mr Kelly... it must have been something else besides the Walker note. I think she found a bullfight program or something like that.                                                                                     *Bircher
