John Dolva Posted September 22, 2005 Share Posted September 22, 2005 (edited) A chance encounter? _____________________________ In this thread I'm trying to draw on known events with a minimum of elaborate assumptions to prop the thoughts up. But with a different interpretation of said events, I think that by separating Lee from the assassination and instead viewing him as a parallel event that intersected in Dallas with the conspirators, a lot of things makes more sense. _____________________________ Kennedy is already being targeted. If not Chicago, then Miami. If not Miami, then Dallas. If not Dallas, then... * The plan in Dallas is for a hit in Dealey Plaza, just before the speech at the Trade Mart to the DCC mambers where Kennedy planned to talk tough on communism. _____________________________ Lee meanwhile has a life entirely separate from all this. _____________________________ If one combines Lees and Marinas testimonies and assume that they are largely correct. Lee is an 'independent Marxist' with a loose CIA-FBI connection as a result of events rather than the events being a product of such an involvement. He went to the USSR while back in the USA events with regards to Cuba were unfolding. He finds the USSR boring and restrictive. However, he manages to inspire a young soviet woman to go back home with him. Lee probably sees himself as a bit of an adventurer. His adolescent hero is probably something like that of the media portrayal of Morgan. In the New Orleans Radio interviews he incurred the wrath of parties interested in restoring Cuba to pre-Castro dictatorship purely for economic reasons. This coincides with anti-Kennedy sentiments. Lee wants to go adventuring in Cuba. He needs to establish credibility within the Castro crowd. He takes a pot shot at Walker, He makes speeches, attempts to join organisations, he poses for some limited circulation publicity shots. (here the question is not one of fakery but of who in 'the loop' saw them). Meanwhile, of course he has a family to support and a life to live. In preparation for a time in Cuba, he distances himself from Marina and the girls so that he can see them being taken care of without him being around. Thinking all was proceeding according to plan, getting a job at the TSBD was just a job. _____________________________________ Here the two threads start to intersect. _____________________________________ Lee is already known and marked by the anti Castro crowd. The plan is adjusted for Lee to be the patsy. Two birds with one stone. He gets an inkling of what is on the move when in the lunch room. He knows he didn't do it and is relying on witnesses to back him on that. However, he has his own plans for the future and don't want them tainted by this new development. So he walks away. He is followed. He suspects this may be the case. His movements are those of someone seeking to shake a tail. To ensure an officially sanctioned killing of Lee, he is followed, and Tippit is shot, the shooter/s figuring that a cop killer gets shot at first; asked questions later. However, they underestimate Lee. He momentarily retreats to the theater where he considers how to deal with this startling turn of events. They 'hate' him and what people like him are. So they are blind to the fact that he is a loose cannon with a subtle streetsmart. He is not surprised when the police turn up. He probably figures that the safest place is in custody. It gives him a chance to speak. His prime concern is to set up the platform re representation. He seeks out previously unused avenues to the intelligence community. However, again, as with so many things in his life he is out of his depth. He is marked for elimination no matter what. But, before he is silenced he has managed to seed doubt with regards to his involvement. He was not to be intimidated. He didn't go on the defensive and make a fool of himself. He took it in his stride and went on the attack. ______________________________________ He was silenced. Now the task of covering up could no longer rely on pre-assassination plans. It becomes an intially desperate tying up of loose ends. Further murders and intimidations. Seeding of mis-information et.c. which leaves us where we are today. The agencies realise during the investigation that they could look bad, so to protect future ops their involvement in a coverup overlaps with the conspirators. Possibly the conspirators are counting on this to further muddy the waters. _____________________________________ Conspirators: Walker & co? Lees pro-Castro persona marks him. The pot shot at Walker seals his fate. His self reliance and lack of a proper big picture perspective makes him vulnerable to manipulation. He was already engaged on a path outside society that necessarily predisposed him towards deceit. The conspirators merely adopted and used him in their own much more organised and 'powerful' purposes. ____________________________________ Lee : the Accidental Patsy. ____________________________________ I like this way of looking at things. It simplifies the picture and doesn't rely on intricate scenarios which are so dependent on everything fitting together. *(Are there any death threats against Kennedy for the time following Dallas?. What was the very last death threat against Kennedy? Where was Kennedy supposed to go next? If there was official involvement could a sketchy future itinerary indicate this? Was the plans for the coming 2 months as detailed as the plans two months before the assassination?) EDIT:: # What I am getting at here is : If one was to study the formulation of Kennedy's itinerary over several months right up to 12.45 on the 22 november 1963 is it possible to see a pattern. One would expect that right up to the moment of his death being known that everything was preceding as normal, as if the 23rd would deal with a President alive, and so on. Therefore to look for is anything unusual in the diaries, itineraries, plans of anyone involved that reveals an expectation that Kennedy would not be around. This would apply re plans etc of anyone outside of the Government, even something as ridiculous as a cancelled subscription, a postponed purchase, a cancelled milk delivery, an altered meeting agenda. A delayed newspaper advertisement. Did anything 'pause', as if in anticipation? Edited September 22, 2005 by John Dolva Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
