The President Kennedy Assassination

8° - "A Patsy Named Lee Harvey Oswald"
As for Lee Harvey Oswald, I am deeply convinced that he fired neither at President Kennedy, nor at the policeman J.D. Tippit. In this machination, Oswald was just a patsy as he said after his arrest.
A brief reminder of the main facts:
At 12:30 p.m. the shooting rang out. One of the motorcycle policemen of the presidential motorcade, Marrion Baker, noticed a bunch of pigeons which took flight above the TSBD, and thereby thought that the shots were fired from the top of this building. He immediately parked his motorbike near the TSBD and reached the hall of this building at top speed. There, he met the TSBD manager, Roy Trully, with whom he went up to the 2th floor where he saw, in the lunchroom, a man who had come to buy a Coke from the soda machine.
This man was Lee Harvey Oswald.
One supposes that during the same lapse of time Oswald would have had the surprising ability to fire at JFK, make sure that his third shot was fatal, wipe his rifle, hide it behind a stack of boxes at the other end of the 6th floor, and go downstairs to the 2th floor to buy a Coke.
What is also surprising is that a man who had just fired at the President went to drink a Coke in the lunchroom rather than to leave the TSBD as soon as possible before the doorways were sealed.
Furthermore, Carolyn Arnold, a TSBD worker, saw Oswald in the lunchroom 10-15 minutes before the shooting. It is thus not very plausible that a man who was getting ready to fire at the President was not in position at that time, and this for two good reasons.
1. Oswald would not have taken the risk to miss the motorcade.
2. Oswald would have needed much more time to concentrate on his shot.
After the shooting, Oswald went out of the TSBD without haste, took first a bus, next a taxi, and arrived at 1 p.m. in his furnished room. Once there, instead of staying far away the agitation which reigned in town, his landlady saw Oswald leaving his room at 1:05 p.m. and waiting at the bus stop opposite her house. In these conditions, it is not very probable that Oswald had time to kill J.D. Tippit who was shot at a location of nine-tenths of mile away from Oswald's room a little before 1:15 p.m. according to the official version. For information, the shortest route from Oswald's rooming home to the Tippit shooting scene takes about 12 minutes to walk.
Next, while the logical thing for the murderer of J.D. Tippit to do was run away far from Oak Cliff area, shortly after 1:30 p.m. Oswald went into the Texas Theater located near the crime scene. The police were then informed that a suspect had entered without paying a ticket (which does not still agree with a criminal forced to be careful) and arrested Oswald after a brief fight at 1: 50 p.m.
In view of all these facts, it is clear that Lee Harvey Oswald was manipulated and lured into this movie theater to give as soon as possible an ideal culprit to the public opinion.
I was 14 years old when I learned about the death of President Kennedy, and then the arrest of Lee Harvey Oswald. I remember that I was very surprised by the speed of this arrest in a big city like Dallas.
It is also quite inconceivable in view of his experience that Lee Harvey Oswald was stupid to the point of killing the President with an old gun bought from a catalogue, and ordered under his false identity of Alek James Hidell which could give him away.
Concerning this matter, it is also claimed that Oswald would have brought his riffle, disassembled and hidden in a brown paper bag, on the morning of November 22. A neighbor of Oswald, Buell Wesley Frazier, who drove him from Irving to Dallas that morning, stated that he saw a two feet package on the back seat of his car. According to Oswald, this package contained curtain rods for his room in Dallas. Frazier also stated that Oswald carried this package in his right hand and wedged under his armpit on his way to the TSBD. It is thus impossible that this package contained the wood stalk of a Carcano 40" measuring 35 inches. Furthermore, I see no reason in disassembling a riffle measuring 40 inches for reducing its lenght by only 5 inches.
"Carcano Paraded by Dallas Police"
Another remark about the backyard photo which featured on the LIFE cover: based on the length of the Mannlicher Carcano registered as CE 139, that is 40 inches, Oswald's height in this photo is smaller than his actual height which was 5 feet and 9 inches.
"Evidence of the Height Discrepancy"
Conclusion: based on the length of the rifle, Oswald is too small. Based on the actual height of Oswald, the rifle is too long. In both cases there is something wrong in this photo.
Finally, Oswald's assassination 48 hours later in the basement of the Dallas police building by a mafia man who allegedly wanted to avenge the honor of Jackie Kennedy was the logical continuation of this conspiracy that had planned to trap him, and next to silence him.
Having said that, Lee Harvey Oswald was not an ordinary citizen, and he was not involved in JFK's assassination by accident. Today, it is quite certain that Oswald was a double agent in pay of the USA and the USSR, and when he came back the USA in June 1962, after having spent two and half years in Minsk, he worked for the CIA and the FBI as well. It is also quite certain that Lee Harvey Oswald was firmly connected with men linked with the assassination of President Kennedy, among whom the man who was in charge of killing him, Jack Ruby.
This essential aim of this first part has been to support objectively the thesis of the plot on the basis of irrefutable testimonies and convincing facts.
