Oswald involved in fist fight?


Recommended Posts

Here is a little more information on the Oswald-Buchanan fist fight story. It seems to be just that - a story without any merit whatsoever.

This is from The Fish Is Red by Warren Hinckle & William W. Turner [later updated as Deadly Secrets]:

Now, for once in the whole sorry intelligence swamp mess in which Lee Oswald floated, things began to go click-click. It was possible to see the sudden clockwork, as cogs in the wheel of disinformation about Oswald calculated to direct angry suspicion about the president’s death toward the left, in general, and Cuba, in particular. Oswald’s watch-me activities in New Orleans and Mexico City – and the mysterious visitors of Mrs. Odio – had set the stage. Then in rapid sequence:

On Tuesday, Nov. 26, John Martino, who had been on the Flying Tiger expedition, charged on a talk show over Miami radio station WQAM that Oswald had distributed Fair Play for Cuba Committee literature in Florida and had traveled to Cuba via Mexico in September.

Interviewed by FBI agent James O’Connor, Martino stated the information came from a Cuban source, who also said that Oswald “had made a telephone call to the Cuban Intelligence Service in Cuba from a private residence in Miami” and, in Houston, “tried to sell marijuana and handled the exchange of Cuban pesos for American dollars.”

That same day the Pompano Beach Sun-Sentinel attributed to Frank Sturgis the news that Oswald had been in telephone contact with Cuban intelligence and “had connections with the Cuban government in Mexico and New Orleans, Louisiana.” The article was by-lined by James C. Buchanan, whose brother Jerry belonged to Sturgis’ International Anti-Communist Brigade.

Agent O’Connor talked to Sturgis, who conceded he had made “offhand comments” to Buchanan but styled them “guesses, speculation and rumor.”

Here is a passage from The Last Investigation by Gaeton Fonzi:

In face, immediately after the Kennedy assassination, Frank Sturgis was involved in other “hot tips” which also proved to be without foundation. One involved a reporter named James Buchanan who wrote an article for the Pompano Beach Sentinel quoting Sturgis as saying that Oswald had visited Miami in November, 1962, to contact Miami-based supporters of Fidel Castro. The article also stated that, while in Miami, Oswald was in telephone contact with Cuban intelligence.

About that time, another story began circulating which indicated that Oswald had demonstrated in Miami’s Bayfront Park with a group from the Fair Play for Cuba Committee and had gotten in a fracas with Jerry Buchanan, the brother of the reporter. The FBI traced both stories, found they were untrue, and eventually contacted Frank Sturgis, who denied he had anything to do with them. The FBI reports wound up as Warren Commission documents. One of those documents reveals that both James and Jerry Buchanan were officers in Sturgis’ International Anti-Communist Brigade.

Jerry Buchanan background from NoduleX10 by AJ Weberman:

JERRY "BUCKY" BUCHANAN

Jerry Buchanan, Jim Buchanan's brother, 22, attended Riverdale School in Norfolk, Virginia, and then served in the Army. He was stationed on the Czechoslovakian border.

In June 1959 he was the Subject of a Miami investigation for impersonation based on use of Army identification in the name of Jesse L. Murphy used to cash bad checks. The complaint, which charged Jerry Buchanan with Impersonation, was dismissed at Miami when he was located at Ft. McPherson, Georgia, in April 1959, serving a sentence for AWOL.

In September 1961 Jerry Buchanan trained with Rolando Masferrer on No Name Key in Florida: "There were 60 of us" Buchanan said, "About half Cubans and half Americans. The island was mostly swamp and we were sleeping out in the open.

In November 1961 a friend of Buchanan had been shot by a Cuban in a training accident. a growing antipathy between the two groups finally led Buchanan to leave the island with the Americans, all of whom subsequently joined FIORINI'S International Anti-Communist Brigade."

On May 16, 1961, Jerry Buchanan told his hometown newspaper, The Norfolk-Ledger, "There are hundreds of Americans in Miami right now who'd like nothing better than a crack at giving Castro the boot. Cubans are nice people but, under pressure, they don't remember orders." [N-L 5.16.61]

The Buchanan brothers flew supply missions from a secret base in the Bahamas to anti-Castro guerrillas in the Escambray Mountains. Victor Paneque helped locate these men. In April 1963 British authorities captured 13 of Cuban exile Orlando Bosch's men on a small West Indies island.

Jerry Buchanan was the only American among the 13 arrested. The funds for this anti-Castro action had been furnished by a Chicago-based Cuban exile, Paulino A. Sierra, who collected money from Las Vegas gambling interests. [CIA 201-739652]

I just got off the phone with Rolando Masferrer (Rodolfo son) Rolando Masferrer's nephew, are you following this so far Len? And understanding what I'm saying? Or must I put it in quotations for you as well? Anyways, after a fifteen min. conversation he tells me that there are lots of inaccuracies about Rolando Masferrer and the JFK assassination, much of them coming from Hemming. Also, he can not confirm as to whether Oswald was ever in Miami and does not know for sure, but says his uncle never met Oswald yet there is this information.

An unidentified man said to have been an ex CIA employee whom Nagell observed talking with Manual Airtime and Rolando Masferre that January 1963 in Miami. He, along with a partner would later come into direct contact with Lee Oswald.

This is getting harder and harder for me, now I have told him that I will email him a tape I have including all of my father's phone book pages as he said he would like to help point me in the right direction.

Len, (You Super Member :rolleyes: ) are you getting this so far?

Here is one more entry on Jerry Buchanan. This is from Ed Arthur's Glory No More © 1975, a great book if you can find it:

Jerry Buchanan was more directly involved with the Cubans. A tough, quiet man who apparently feared nothing, he made dozens of runs by boat carrying weapons and men which were dropped in lonely spots along the coast. American dollars were used to purchase many of the guns that found their way to the island.

Many businessmen in south Florida at that time supported the exile movement. During a conversation Ed [Arthur] had with [James] Buchanan, the reporter let slip that his newspaper [sun Sentinel] was even doing a little supporting. The powerful Gore family, who also owned the larger Fort Lauderdale News, was a prime source of support. Today, both newspapers are owned by the Chicago Tribune, but still operated by members of the Gore family.

Those Americans who donated money to the Cuban exile cause had a simple explanation. The exiles were fighting Castro; Castro was a Communist; Communism was America’s enemy. Why not help the Cubans?

Zach, these are all GREAT posts, and you apparently have done your homework, knowing what your looking for, however, I'm not hanging my hat just on Jerry or what others are saying or not saying. I also have to beleive my mother when she says that my father met Lee Oswald in Miami in 1962. Most of the information of Lee being in Miami was in 1962 and if that name and number my father has in his phone book can be linked to the Lee Oswald we all know then that's all the proof I need. I'm still looking into it, and I'm not giving up.

Hi Scott,

I would like to hear more details about your mother's account of your father meeting Oswald in Miami in 1962. (Perhaps you have written about this or posted it elsewhere? Please do let me know).

Meanwhile, I think everyone studying this matter should also be aware of another piece of critical evidence--an undated postcard received by Robert Oswald (from Dallas) that is postmarked January 10, 1963. This is WC Exhibit 324 (16 WCH 916), and reads (typed out line by line) as follows:

Dear Robert,

Sorry I took so long in saying

“Thank you” for the nice Xmas present

You sent June. I was out of town

For a few days so I didn’t hear about

It until after Xmas. Please send pic

My regards when you write him, I

Seem to have mislaid his address.

Your Brother,

Lee.

P.S. Marina says “Hello”

UNQUOTE

If true, this text suggests that LHO made a brief "out of town" trip in the day or two or three just following Christmas, 1962. (Remember: he was at a X-mas party, brought there by DeMohrenshieldt). Marina was questioned about this postcard by the HSCA and denied he was gone for the length of time necessary to make a bus trip to Florida (I do not have the page reference immediately at hand). FWIW: I was never completely satisfied that we know the whole story on this particular matter, and I think the whole "bus trip" idea provides a possibly incorrect context.

This post card is very important evidence. It was auctioned at ebay (by Robert Oswald) around 2005, and it may have been sold. The asking price was about $20,000.

Robert Oswald's testimony about the postcard is at Volume 1, p. 390. He simply acknowledges it exists, and at that point it is mentioned as being Warren Commission Exhibit 324.

If Oswald in fact left town for a day or two, I don't think he went by bus (which was the way the HSCA questioned him). I would assume he was flown somewhere, and then back. So this entire "out of town" trip could have been simply a matter of, say, two nights and three days--which is the likely model that I would use in analyzing it).

As far as I know, the implications of the text of this postcard--a brief out of town trip by LHO immediately after 12/25/62--was never investigated by the FBI (but I could be wrong).

Anyway, I would very much appreciate it if you could set forth the details of what your mother related about your father having met Oswald--the when and where of it, when he recollected it; was it something that he immediately realized on 11/22/63 when Oswald's name was first in the news, etc.

Thank you.

Hi David,

Its very nice to met you, according to my mother my father helped my grandmother move from Norwalk Conn. to Miami Beach, sometime in November of 1962. My parents got married in September of 1962, my mother was already working and staying with my father's aunt Dorthy in Norwalk. I called her aunt Dot, anyways, my father apparently did not return back to Norwalk until late Janarary of 1963. In which he had mention to my mother that he met a lot of Cuban people down there, he also said that he had met two Americans down there named Lee Oswald and Frank Fiorini. In one of his letter's he writes to me says, the first time my father meets Frank was at a house of a Cuban by the name of Wilfredo Navarro, so I'm assuming that my father was also talking about meeting Navarro as being one of the Cubans while in Miami in 1962.

Navarro and Sturgis knew each other sense 1960, so when we all as a family move in Miami in November of 1968, my father gets himself reacquainted with Navarro and Sturgis. And it was at that time my father started to get wrapped up in the Cubanos Unidos and the Cuban problems.

Hi Scott,

Thanks for the kind words – I greatly appreciate it! I am glad you are not giving up on your search. Keep digging, you never know what you might find, or where you might find it.

Continuing the inquiry on Jerry Buchanan and looking through my copy of Ed Arthur's Glory No More, I found the following passage that may be of interest to you. Keep in mind there is no index in the book and there are a few spelling errors (Jerry Henning being an example), I found this entry on page 153-154 of a man named Kaiser:

Shortly before Watergate, Jerry Patrick Henning turned up in Miami, announcing to one and all that he was through with the “business” (probably gun-running) and was planning to settle down. At least one federal officer told the author Henning was going “loaded with heat,” meaning he was carrying a gun. Curiously, Frank Fiorini also turned up in Miami with the same story. He was going straight too. No more involvement with the anti-Castro Cubans, he told intimates. No more running around the Caribbean! He would now settle down with his wife and become a model citizen.

Another of [Mitch] WerBell’s agents in the South American field, and a close friend of Frank Fiorini, was Bill Kaiser, a soldier-of-fortune like Fiorini and WerBell, who vanished from his Miami haunts a few days after the Watergate Caper hit the front pages of the Miami Herald. Kaiser later surfaced in Port au Prince as a guest at Mike McLaney’s Casino International. A Miami federal agent told the author the FBI wanted very badly to have a chat with the elusive Kaiser, hinting that he had played a role in the Watergate break-in.

A third man involved with WerBell and Fiorini was Murray Middleman of Philadelphia, whose connections remain a mystery. But Jim and Jerry Buchanan, Ed Arthur’s old compadres, do not remain a mystery, although just what they were doing the night of the Watergate break-in is anybody’s guess and might be of interest to federal officers. Both Jim and Jerry were long-time friends of Fiorini, having worked with him and Arthur in the early days of the anti-Castro movement. Both were in Costa Rica with Fiorini.

Excellent find Zack! Again, you have proven yourself. I have to commend you on your find, "Bill" Kaiser was one of my father's alias names, also quoted by a Mike Wales an investigative reporter for the Sun Sentinel News paper in Pompano Beach sited a reliable source saying that he heard a sixth man was involved in Watergate and he knows of one "Bill" Kaiser that was long time friends with Sturgis. The FBI hand writes my father's name on the document as Edwin B. Kaiser Jr. Also,

Another example of my father using the name "Bill" is when I came across a very curious file from June of 1963. This file is a transcript of conversations, audio recorded by the FBI during a surveillance of a mafia planning session. In it, the parties involved make mention of Jimmy Hoffa, his henchmen and one "Bill Kaiser". “This Kaiser is coming in with a lot of f. . . . . . pressure.” Says Hoffa, What pressure was my father bringing? “Bill Kaiser” is documented as one of my father’s many aliases. Apparently my father had some dealings with Hoffa as well.

Good work Zack! Thanks....

Kaiser later surfaced in Port au Prince as a guest at Mike McLaney’s Casino International.

My mother told the FBI that my father went to Haiti, he left just after hearing the news that Frank got arrested, my mother knew my father had already taken off on one of those trips with Frank to Washington and felt my father went into hiding. I'm guessing that's how my father ended up with the photo's of Hunt, Sturgis, Liddy and others that everyone was looking for, my father stole them. My mother says she has seen these photo's in my father's attache case.

It wouldn't be long until my father started to plot the assassination of Papa Doc. And, "I do beleive, my father killed him."

I thought that maybe someone may have seen this article and would be able to share what it says, I explained to Gordon that it was hard for me to read, so he suggested that I check it out at a library on microfilm. The problem with that is I don't think that all the libraries would carry it and I would need to visit the Main Library downtown Miami to find it.

Thanks for that one Scott.

You are in a unique position to be able to talk to some of those Cubans and CIA contractors who knew your father,

and obtain their trust so that you can talk one-on-one, and give them the info that you found and get the info from

them that they know.

Peter Janney, the son of a CIA officer, also got the cooperation of some CIA officials like Dino Brugioni of NPIC.

Tony Summers has an Irish expression for the type of charisma that a person has that can get people to talk and

open up to them with the truth, a rare commodity, as most people are combative and accusatory, while sometimes

it is necessary to be empathetic, understanding and trustworthy.

Hi David,

Is there a stamp on the post card saying where it is coming from? Thanks.

Never mind, I just saw it was coming from Dallas.
