PITTMAN and OSWALD travel to USSR at same time?


Recommended Posts

At the following link are files related to the PITTMAN's travel thru Paris & UK to get to Visas to Moscow

They date from Oct 5, 1959 thru Oct 16, 1959 and are HEAVILY REDACTED.... https://www.maryferrell.org/php/showlist.php?docset=1648&sort=date&page=3 

 

Why such heavy redaction related to a writer and his wife via Paris, UK, train to Moscow....?

David,

The name John Pittman was on a list provided to the HSCA by the CIA of Americans who had defected or at least were in the Soviet Union between 1958 and 1964.  His name stayed on the list as a number of filters were applied, essentially to find people like LHO.

see: http://mcadams.posc.mu.edu/russ../jfkinfo4/jfk12/defector.htm

My bet is that he, like LHO, was a spy, although quite a bit older.

In a remarkable coincidence he and his family were planning to sail from New York to Le Havre 9/17/59.  By coincidence I mean I think LHO is believed to have arrived there 10/8.
