Oswald photographed with KGB recruiter


Recommended Posts

This is from Joseph Trento's book, "The Secret History of the CIA", page 219:

While he [Oswald] was being processed out of the Marines in Los Angeles, the FBI photographed him meeting with Lieutenant Colonel Pavel T. Voloshin, a top KGB recruiter who was in LA with a Soviet dance troupe. The FBI placed the picture in a counterintelligence file on KGB "watchers" of cultural organizations visiting the United States. The FBI also took another picture of Oswald, this time as he was visiting the Cuban consulate in Los Angeles.

In Groden's book "The Search for LHO" there are photos of Oswald TAKEN BY the KGB, but I don't recall ever having seen the FBI photos. Does anyone have any information? Thanks.

A question might be, "why would the FBI have an interest in a Marine who has applied for a hardship discharge so that he can go home and take care of his mother?"

Or perhaps"why would the Marines grant an early discharge to a man the FBI knew was contacting Soviet KGB agents and the Cuban Embassy?"

Did you ever get an answer to your question?
