Ed O'Hagan Posted May 4, 2004 Share Posted May 4, 2004 (edited) John, I happened to visit the JFK Lancer site and read your inquiry re Marina Oswald. I talked with her on six different occasions by telephone about five years ago. On two of those occasions she called me from a telephone-booth. Each time I called her at her home in Rockwall, Texas, she informed me that her telephone line was being tapped. Based on personal experience, I have not the least difficulty in accepting that it was indeed the case. Originally Marina's cleverly worded statement to me was, "I had believed in the beginning that Lee had killed Kennedy". The 'cleverly' bit was that she avoided, and consistently avoided in all of our subsequent conversations, using the words 'my husband'. It was always 'Lee this' and 'Lee that' and "Now I know that Lee was innocent." She explained to me how she had learned for the very first time that 'Lee' had not shot Kennedy, as follows: "Jim Garrison asked me to come to see him. All the way going down to New Orleans in the car with Ken ( her second husband, Ken Porter) I was so angry. I believed that Lee had killed Kennedy, and over and over again I was telling Ken what I thought of Garrison for dragging us through the whole thing again. However, within 15 minutes after meeting Garrison in his office and listening to what he had to tell me, I was crying on his shoulder, and I knew that Lee was innocent." Well that's her story, and it's absolutely factually correct. However, what Marina fails to relate is that she knew all along that 'Lee' Harvey Oswald(LHO) had not shot JFK, since LHO was not her husband, and that it was her husband, whom she also deliberately and misleadingly refers to as being 'Lee', who was directly involved in the assassination as one of the shooters. Doppelganging the word 'Lee' has served her well... and the reason she was 'crying' on Garrison's shoulder was that she suddenly realized that Garrison apppeared to have the evidence to show that LHO had not shot JFK. It was both expedient and politically correct at that moment in time for her to have had her "mind changed" by Garrison. LHO was not Marina's husband? How do I know that? Marina unwittingly told me, and indeed LHO was saying precisely just that, when he denied having posed for the backyard picture shown to him by Fritz. It can be deduced from the following question which I put to Marina: Question: 'Marina, who took the backyard pictures?" Answer: "I did , but the pictures you see to-day are not the ones I took of Lee." Here, once again, Marina was being factually correct, while at the same time using the word 'Lee' both to conceal and mislead. Prior to telling me what she certainly knew to be the truth of the matter concerning the backyard pictures... which very cleverly confirmed both LHO's insistence (together with a host of subsequent CT researchers' conclusions) that the pictures had been 'doctored' by means of the image of his face having been superimposed... Marina had described in detail everything about how the picture came to be taken and how "Lee' had insisted in holding the newspaper, etc., etc. In point of fact, Marina had described in detail to me everything that was identically depicted in " the pictures you see to-day" In other words, although she did not realize it, she was telling me that the only thing that was different in the picture she took of HER HUSBAND to the one Fritz had shown to LHO, was the image of LHO's face, and which he had claimed had been superimposed. Additionally, why would LHO have risked denying having posed for Marina, if he had actually known that she was the one who had taken the pictures (and the only way he could have known that was by actually having posed for her ), since he would have realized that his denial could not have been sustained. All that they would had to do was to call-in Marina and bring LHO face-to- face with her, and his denial would have been rendered obsolete in very short order. The most nonsensical aspect of the whole scenario is to inquire of Marina as to why her pictures of her husband would have been were altered/changed/ substituted, so that everything in the backyard, including her description of 'Lee's' depiction and posture, would look precisely the same as she had described it? Simply put, it all comes down to the question: " Marina, are you saying that they took the picture of your husband, and then superimposed his face over his face ?" ..... Hope this is helpful.
