Guest Stephen Turner Posted September 29, 2005 Share Posted September 29, 2005 Just thinking out loud, feel free to shot me down. In researching Oswalds trip to Mexico,and his visits to the Cuban, and Soviet embassies, I decide to speculate that if Oswald were being run by the CIA,what was their motive in encouraging this episode. If we further assume that Kennedy's assassination was already green lighted, and Oswald one of a number of potential "patsy's" being lined up to take the fall, then two possibilties suggest themselves. 1, Had Oswald managed to persuade the Cuban Consulate to grant papers, even of a temporary nature the scenario is obvious, Oswald, a known Castro supporter, goes to Cuba, returns a month later and assassinates Kennedy, Hey-presto Castro's to blame, dust down those invasion plans,and lets do the Havana waltz. The second possibility is of course the one the W/C hinted at and the Posnerite solution, that this was one rebuff to many, and Oswald returns to the States a broken, and bitter man, hatching twisted plans for future infamy. I then started to think about operation Mongoose (particularly Northwoods) and the ridiculous plans for Castro's assassination, Exploding cigars, poison to make his beard fall out, etc,what if these were not real operation's at all, but setting the scene to give Castro a reason to want Kennedy dead, at least in the eye's of the American public. If this trick can be pulled off you kill two birds with one stone. After all, if you assasinate Castro you kill one man, and probably harden Cuba's resolve to resist. Fake a reason for invasion, you get the whole shooting match. and in doing away with the hated Kennedy you get Vietnam thrown in as well. as I said just thinking out loud...Steve.
