Yet there is also a photo of Oswald's belongings it shows the photo of that Oswald took and it is hole is not there. Does anyone know who could have put the hole there removeing the plate number? Mark, nobody ever came up with an official explanation for the destroyed license plate number; not in the Warren Commission testimony, and not in the HSCA hearings. If I were to guess, I'd say it was to hide the identify of the owner of the car - since this is the modus operandi of the FBI and CIA when they release classified information. If this is correct, then the truth is clear -- the FBI/CIA knew who owned the car, and they chose to protect this person. Now, why else would they choose to protect that person unless something known and clandestine was involved? No other reason. So, the car belonged to somebody that was involved in something top secret, and the FBI/CIA chose to conceal the identity of that person. If that is correct, then I will speculate: the owner of the car was either Larrie Schmidt or somebody close to Larrie Schmidt. Schmidt was the leader of the "Conservatism USA" movement that started in Germany among US military officers. They moved to Dallas in 1962 and successfully took over the YAF (Young Americans for Freedom), and were in the process of taking over the NIC (National Indignation Committee) and even Walker's own AEP (American Eagle Publications). Larrie Schmidt's brother, Bob Schmidt, obtained a full-time job with Walker as chauffer and errand-boy, a month before the April 10th shooting incident. Larrie was a protoge of General Charles Willoughby, who was General MacArthur's intelligence officer - a brilliant writer who wrote the four volume history of General MacArthur's World War Two campaigns. When MacArthur was fired by President Truman, Willoughby began making up stories of a Communist plot in the White House. (This is where Joe McCarthy got his first inklings for his renegade movement.) So, Larrie Schmidt was a very ambitious young man (in his twenties) and he was very well connected with people in high places. If he was involved in any clandestine activity surrounding the JFK assassination, the FBI/CIA did not want this to be known. That's my speculation. Best regards, --Paul Trejo UPDATE March, 2017: Today I accept the conclusion that the car belonged to Mr. Charles Klihr, who, along with his wife, was a long-time volunteer for the John Birch Society and General Edwin Walker, and who was as naïve as a child. Mr. and Mrs. Klihr had no idea about any cloak-and-dagger plots; they were simply office volunteers for the American Eagle Publishing Company, filling book orders. The reason the FBI scratched out their license plate number was to protect the innocent. That's my current position.
