What Was Lee Harvey Oswald Doing in Russia? - Foundation for Economic Education - Working for a free and prosperous world

It's mere speculation, but seemingly never has someone so unimportant and – in a sense – unknown in life achieved such literary notoriety in death. Once in Russia, Oswald headed to Moscow in hopes of starting a new life as a Soviet citizen.While most focus on a question that just won't die (did he or didn't he kill Kennedy, and if he did, was he the lone gunman?) , far fewer address Oswald's time in the Soviet Union. That's what's so interesting about Peter Savodnik's 2013 book The Interloper: Lee Harvey Oswald Inside the Soviet Union. How the KGB Duped Oliver Stone. Helping defeat Hillary Clinton is not the most successful influence operation Moscow has ever mounted against the United States.

How the KGB Duped Oliver Stone

The most momentous, yes. But any covert activity that is exposed so rapidly and incites a backlash cannot be deemed an unalloyed accomplishment. Moscow’s single most effective influence operation remains the one induced 50 years ago this month, when the now-defunct New Orleans States-Item published a front-page story on April 25, 1967, entitled “Mounting Evidence Links CIA to ‘Plot’ Probe.”

It was an operation that culminated in an unimaginable success—a Hollywood blockbuster by Oliver Stone contending that the CIA was behind JFK's assassination. That probe, as every conscious American knew, was district attorney Jim Garrison’s re-investigation of President Kennedy’s assassination amid a pronounced erosion of public confidence in the Warren Report.

I have been a JFK researcher for 35 years. Corsi has distorted what most of us think to serve a fear-mongering political agenda. "JFK researchers: Trump at risk for assassination" is a lousy piece of journalism, less a story than a conspiratorial meme. Who Was Jack Ruby?

Ruminations on the Greatest Mystery Never Solved

Kennedy. Though supposedly the matter was settled long ago, most Americans don’t believe the Warren Commission’s hasty, FBI-driven verdict. Nor was that verdict acceptable to the House Select Committee on Assassinations (of the 1970s) which concluded that the president had most likely been killed as a result of a conspiracy, though it failed to resolve the particulars. Yet, all kinds of people keep trying, at their own expense, to solve the mystery. “There is a tremendous debt owed to this amazing bunch of people who do this stuff selflessly their whole lives … This may be the greatest revelation out of the whole thing if nothing else, the fundamental goodness, decency, and tenacity” of truth-seeking investigators in the U.S. and around the world, Baker said.

Gary Aguilar, and the other members of the Coalition on Political Assassinations for affording me this privilege. I accepted your invitation because I feel that the point of view for which I and thousands of unsung others have stood for thirty-five years is important. I believe that for us to be free to work for a more decent society we must come to accept the point of view which I will now explain. For one half of my seventy years, from almost the very date of the assassination, I have been convinced that the killing of President Kennedy was a patent Cold War killing – the bloody work of the U.S. military-intelligence system and its supporting civilian power elite.

D. Tippit was one of the few officers in the Dallas Police Force not to be called to Dealey Plaza to help investigate the assassination.
