Oswald Lone Nut or Covert Jackal?

“Whether or not there had been a conspiracy is not a matter of opinion, it is a matter of fact. Conspiracy under the law is a combination to do wrong…. In its simplest formulation, if the crime was beyond the capability of any one person, on that basis alone it was a conspiracy. The crime outlined by the Warren Commission was, by the Commission's own evidence, impossible for any one person.” – Harold Weisberg

Oswald: Lone Nut or Covert Jackal?

If Lee Harvey Oswald really did assassinate the President alone, and without any assistance, as he stands charged, then how come those who make this allegation also claim that he was a no-good, wife beating loser who couldn't hold a job, rather than the really good, successful assassin he must have been? According to those who claim he was a lone-nut, he couldn’t do anything successful in his life except the impossible – kill the president.

Was he really a deranged lone nut case, or was he really a covert jackal, like the professional assassin in the book and film Day of the Jackal? 

From a military family whose brothers served in the US Marine corps, Coast Guard and Air Force, Lee Harvey Oswald was a Civil Air Patrol cadet, US marine trained in radar and communications stationed at a high security U2 base, who defected to the Soviet Union and returned home to Texas with a Russian wife and daughter. Oswald used aliases, codes and pay telephones, kept an apartment separate from his family and traveled extensively using pubic transportation. Although he expressed Marxist ideals, supported Castro and was a member of the Fair Play for Cuba Committee, he associated with conservative White Russians and oil men in Dallas, worked at a high-tech graphics firm that placed captions and markers on U2 photos of Russia and Cuba, and was affiliated with right wing intelligence operatives in New Orleans. He is accused of taking a pot shot at General Walker, was convicted of engaging in a public disturbance with anti-Castro Cuban DRE operatives in New Orleans and was monitored by the CIA when he visited the Cuban and Soviet embassies in Mexico City. He was extensively and intentionally impersonated on numerous occasions and denied shooting anyone on November 22, 1963, claiming he was framed as a patsy for crimes he didn’t commit.

From those basic facts alone any intelligence analyst worth his salt would at least consider the possibility that Oswald was a covert intelligence operative or agent, and know that if that was the case, it would be imperative to determine exactly what intelligence network he was associated with and who was behind those operations he was involved with, especially the Dealey Plaza operation. 

No one before the assassination considered him a mental case, especially those who knew him well, even Mrs. Paine, who never would have allowed him to stay at her home if she suspected he was crazy or violent. Rather, Oswald fits the personality profile of a covert intelligence operative – as do others of a similar background – Frank Sturgis, Gerry Patrick Hemming and Robert Hardy, to name three.

If Oswald was the lone assassin of the president, he would have had to accomplish a number of things that he was incapable of doing himself, and would have needed assistance to accomplish them. If these things were done unintentionally and coincidently, he was very lucky indeed, but as David Atlee Phillips once said, “The intelligence profession does not condition one to accept coincidence as an explanation for events.”

Things Oswald Must Have Done If He Was The Assassin
For Which There Is No Evidence, Record or Witness.

1) Obtain the rifle and pistol from the Post Office, where someone must have handed him the package containing the rifle over the counter and created some receipt, but there is no witness and no receipt.

2) Obtain the ammo and clip for the rifle and bullets for the pistol, for which there is no known source.

3) Physically move the rifle from Dallas to New Orleans in April and back again in September in Mrs. Paine's station wagon and storing it in her garage without her or her husband knowing it. He had to do these things without even being present at the scene so that is pretty amazing. 

3) Practice with the rifle, to ensure that it works, and align the scope so it was in proper order.

4) Disassemble the rifle at the Paines and then reassemble the rifle at the TSBD and align the scope.

5) Obtain the brown paper wrapping paper that was said to have concealed the rifle when brought it to the TSBD, and bring the rifle into the building without anyone seeing it, despite witnesses who saw him enter the building with nothing in his hands.

6) Hide the assembled rifle somewhere in the TSBD for the hours before the assassination

7).Build the wall of boxes that set up the Sniper's Lair in the Sixth Floor window.

8) Get from the First Floor of the TSBD where he was last seen by more than one person shortly after noon to the Sixth Floor at 12;30 without anyone seeing him.

9) Shoot at least three shots from the rifle from the Sixth Floor Window in the allotted time, on target.

10)  Move boxes in the window, as photos and witness testimony indicate, hide the rifle elsewhere on the Sixth Floor and descend the steps to the Second Floor in less than two minutes without being seen by Jack Dougherty, who was standing by the elevators on the fifth floor, or two secretaries who descended the same steps from the Fourth Floor at the same time.

11) Leave the TSBD from the front door after the assassination without anyone seeing him or being recorded on any of the cameras or TV films being taken.

12) Change his shirt (did he change his shirt?) and pick up his pistol from his room.

13) Get from the bus stop at the corner outside his rooming house to 10th and Patton without anyone seeing him on the street.

14) Other, a, b, c. 

[If anyone has any further examples or instances of things Oswald had to do in order to accomplish the assassination alone, please fill me in so I can add them to the list]

Things Oswald had to have other people do for him to accomplish the assassination alone.

1)      Arrange for the motorcade to ride past his building during lunch hour, otherwise everyone would have been at work, including those laying new floor on the Sixth Floor.
2)      Arrange for his name to be taken off the Security Watch Index, as it was by an FBI agent.
3)      Arrange for the Secret Service agents to be taken off the back fender of the car, as they were (reportedly at JFK’s instructions).
4)      Other, x, y, z. 

[If anyone has any other examples of what other people had to do in order for Oswald to accomplish the assassination alone, and I'm sure there are some, please let me know so I can add them to the list ]
