Here we have the Dallas FBI office, one month before the murder of JFK, telling Hoover that the Oswald in Mexico is a "look-alike".

Is there any doubt that Oswald was well known to virtually every agency charged with investigating him?

This one can be found in Mary Ferrell's database. Alas, I failed to work through the joining process and finally gave up. Anyone belong to Mary Ferrell's that might let us know the contents?

Found it:

http://www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/...amp;relPageId=1

Appears to be a 'routing and record sheet' plus another sheet of info on someone called John Anthony McVickar and also mentions the embassy in Moscow and Richard Snyder.

It also adds a bit to the title of the document, stating (on page 3) that these papers etc were held by the LA Division in 'Project GP Floor'.

Anyone know what that is?

"GPFLOOR" is the crypt that refers to Lee Harvey Oswald
given after the assassination.

Looks like a problem with dates and a clerical error - on one it notes 'Project GPFLOOR' and on the other 'Project Oswald.' LA Division = Latin American. FSO = Foreign Service Officers. Doesn't look like it's tied to the Project Oswald referred to by Wilcott. Sounds more like it referred to the bit in italics below.

http://www.jfklancer.com/Wilcott.html

O S W A L D A N D T H E C I A

On March 22, 1978, former CIA accountant James B. Wilcott swore under oath before the House Select Committee on Assassinations that he believed that Lee Harvey Oswald was a "regular employee" of the Central Intelligence Agency, and that he believed Oswald received "a full-time salary for agent work for doing CIA operational work." He testified that he was told by another CIA employee that money he (Wilcott) had personally disbursed was for "the Oswald project or for Oswald."

The modestly redacted full text of Wilcott's testimony was kept out of the public's eye for two decades. The copy which I scanned, OCR'd and present in full was obtained by John Armstrong in early 1998 and sent to me by Michael Parks. I have previously posted excerpts of Wilcott's testimony to alt.conspiracy.jfk, but this is the first time the testimony appears here in full. Redactions, which are minimal, are indicated with XXX's. No attempt has been made to match the character count of redacted material, but all redactions are short, no more than a word or two.

It should be noted that the HSCA Report, probably written by Robert Blakey, or written under his direct supervision, briefly and somewhat inaccurately summarized Wilcott's testimony and then pointedly tried to discredit it. Here is the full text of that criticism, which appears on pp. 199 and 200 of the HSCA Report:

<QUOTE ON>

In an attempt to investigate Wilcott's allegations, the committee interviewed several present and former CIA employees selected on the basis of the position each had held during the years 1954-64. Among the persons interviewed were individuals whose responsibilities covered a broad spectrum of areas in the post abroad, including the chief and deputy chief of station, as well as officers in finance, registry, the Soviet Branch and counterintelligence.

None of these individuals interviewed had ever seen any documents or heard any information indicating that Oswald was an agent. (18) This allegation was not known by any of them until it was published by critics of the Warren Commission in the late 1960's.(19) Some of the individuals, including a chief of counterintelligence in the Soviet Branch, expressed the belief that it was possible that Oswald had been recruited by the Soviet KGB during his military tour of duty overseas, as the CIA had identified a KGB program aimed at recruiting U.S. military personnel during the-period Oswald was stationed there. (20) An intelligence analyst whom Wilcott had specifically named as having been involved in a conversation about the Oswald allegation told the committee that he was not in the post abroad at the time of the assassination.(21) A review of this individual's office of personnel file confirmed that, in fact, he had been transferred from the post abroad to the United States in 1962. (22) The chief of the post abroad from 1961 to 1964 stated that had Oswald been used by the Agency he certainly would have learned about it.(23) Similarly, almost all those persons interviewed who worked in the Soviet Branch of that station indicated they would have known if Oswald had, in fact, been recruited by the CIA when he was overseas.(24) These persons-expressed the opinion that, had Oswald been recruited without their knowledge, it would have been a rare exception contrary to the working policy and guidelines of the post abroad. (25)

Based on all the evidence, the committee concluded that Wilcott's allegation was not worthy of belief.

Wilcott should have taken some of his work home with him.
