Our Lady of the Warren Commission: Part 2/2

Written by

Was Oswald at the scene of the Walker shooting? The two main eyewitnesses said he was not. And what was so hard for Ruth about calling an attorney?

The Inconvenient Witness

Thomas Mallon. “And he (Oswald) had gotten away with it. The bullet had almost grazed the top of Walkers head, the hair, and he got away on foot, he didn’t drive a car… (And) he hid the rifle by the railroad tracks…”

To rebut Mr. Mallon's claims, it is crucial to highlight that there is a substantial and irrefutable body of evidence indicating that Lee Harvey Oswald was never seen at or near General Walker’s home at4011 Turtle Creek Boulevard before, during, or after the attempted Walker assassination on April 10th, 1963. This point is not merely speculative but grounded in well-documented and verified accounts.

Furthermore, the weight of the evidence supports the conclusion that the assassination attempt involved not just one, but two individuals. Particularly compelling testimony comes from Walter Kirk Coleman, a 15-year-old residing near the General's residence. On the night of April 10th, 1963, Coleman reported hearing a gunshot, an ominous sound aimed at ending General Walker's life. In a swift reaction, Coleman dashed outside and peered over his fence. His vantage point provided a clear view of the church parking lot adjacent to General Walker’s residence. What he witnessed there is crucial to understanding the events of that fateful night.

Coleman observed:

A man getting into a 1949 or 1950 Ford, which was parked headed towards Turtle Creek Boulevard, with the motor running and the headlights on. (Before the man got into the car, he) glanced back in the direction of Coleman and (took) off. Also, further down the parking lot was another car, a two door, black over white, two-door Chevrolet sedan and a man was in it. He had the dome light on, and Kirk could see him bend over the front seat as if he was putting something in the back floorboard. Kirk described the car as; “black with a white stripe.” The man who took off in the Ford was described as; “a white male, about 19 or 20 years of age, about 5”10 tall, and weighing about 130 pounds. He was attired in “Kakhi pants and a sports shirt with figures in it. Kirk stated, “that this man had dark bushy hair, a thin face with a large nose, and was real skinny”. The second man was described by Coleman as, “a white male, about 6”1, about 200 pounds, wearing a dark long sleeve shirt and dark pants. Kirk could furnish no information on this man's facial features nor his age.

Was one of the men Kirk Coleman saw, Lee Harvey Oswald?

“Coleman stated that he had seen numerous pictures of Lee Harvey Oswald, and he was shown a photograph of Oswald among several other photographs. He stated that neither man resembled Oswald and that he had never seen anyone in or around the Walker residence or the church before or after April 10, 1963, who resembled Lee Harvey Oswald”.

This testimony is a significant piece of evidence, as it directly challenges any claims that Oswald was present at the scene of the attempted assassination. (see this and this)

Coleman’s account is corroborated by Walker himself who testified to the Warren Commission that; “As I crossed a window coming downstairs in front, I saw a car at the bottom of the church alley just making a turn onto Turtle Creek. The car was unidentifiable. I could see the two back lights, and you have to look through trees there, and I could see it moving out. This car would have been about at the right time for anybody that was making a getaway. (Volume XI; p. 405)Picture1

April 8th, 1963.

Between 9:00-9:30pm on April 8th, 1963, Robert Surrey, a disciple of General Walker’s, was proceeding up Avondale Avenueto the house at 4011, Turtle Creek Boulevard. It was Surrey’s intention to enter the General’s property via the alleyway entrance. However, just prior to turning off Avondale, Mr. Surrey, “Observed a 1963 dark brown or maroon, four door Ford, parked on Avondale with two men sitting in it.” Surrey decided to avoid taking the alley, instead continuing around to block the car-park near the Mormon Church. Surrey observed the two men, “Get out of the car, walk up the alley and onto the Walker property and look into the windows of the Walker house.” At this point Surrey went to their automobile, where he checked the rear of the car, and observed there was no license plate. He then opened the door and looked into the car and opened the glove compartment. He observed nothing in the car or glove compartment which would help identify the occupants. He then went back to his car and drove to a position where he could observe the 1963 Ford leave.

Surrey testified to the Commission regarding the strange behavior of these two individuals...

Robert Surrey.“Well, the gist of the matter is that two nights before the assassination attempt, I saw two men around the house peeking in windows and so forth, and reported this to the general the following morning, and he, in turn, reported it to the police on Tuesday, and it was Wednesday night that he was shot at. So that is really the gist of the whole thing.”Picture2

Surrey told the FBI that, “He had never seen either of these two men before or since this incident, and (believed) neither of these two men was identical with Lee Harvey Oswald. (Surrey) “Described one of the men as a white male, in his 30s, about 5’10” to 6’ tall and weighing about 190 pounds. (Surrey) described the second individual as a white male, in his 30’s, 5’10” to 6’ tall, and weighing about 160 pounds. Both men were well dressed in suites, dress shirts and ties.FBI 105-82555 Oswald HQ File, Section 186 (

The Ballistics Evidence

From April 10, 1963, the bullet which was fired at General Walker, “Appeared to be from a high-powered, 30.06 rifle, and was a Steel jacketed bullet”. (see this)

This information was highly disseminated throughout the press and was reported in a New York Times article of April 12, 1963.Picture3

A Mystifying Metamorphosis: The "Magic Bullet" Phenomenon

From the ashes of President Kennedy, Officer Tippit and Lee Oswald’s tragic murders, a bewildering transformation occurred within the confines of the Dallas Police Evidence Room. Here, the "Walker bullet" performed a baffling act of alchemy, transforming from its official initial classification as a 30.06 steel-jacketed projectile into a 6.5 Mannlicher Carcano bullet—its steel guise mysteriously supplanted by copper. This near-miraculous change provided the Warren Commission with a serendipitous twist in their narrative, allowing them to lay the blame for the attempted assassination of Maj. Gen. Edwin A. Walker squarely on the now-silenced Oswald. This switch, a masterpiece of evidentiary sleight of hand, was instrumental in allowing the Commission to fortify their case of circumstantial evidence, confidently proclaiming in their report: “Oswald had attempted to kill Maj. Gen. Edwin A. Walker (Retired, U.S. Army) on April 10, 1963, thereby demonstrating his disposition to take human life.” (WCR; p. 20). Through this narrative legerdemain, the Commission could weave a more compelling, albeit convenient, story of guilt. (WCR;p..20)

A Dichotomy of Possibilities: Incompetence or Subterfuge?

The ballistic evidence bifurcates into two realms of possibility. One path leads to a conclusion of stark incompetence on the part of General Walker and the Dallas Police Department investigators, a lapse in judgment and identification that stood unchallenged for over seven months. The alternate path veers towards a more sinister landscape, positing that the bullet now residing in the National Archives (CE573) and officially linked to the Walker case was, in fact, a posthumous plant designed to frame Oswald. While this theory may initially seem steeped in the realms of far-fetched conjecture, it gains a semblance of plausibility when juxtaposed against the backdrop of questionable evidence marshalled against Oswald in both the JFK and Tippit cases.

The FBI's Spectrographic Analysis: A Tale of Suppressed Evidence

Adding to the enigma, the FBI's spectrographic analysis of Q-188 (CE573) painted a divergent picture. Special Agent Henry H. Heilberger, in his analytical report (PC-78378), discerned that the lead alloy comprising the Walker bullet bore no resemblance to the lead alloy from the two large bullet fragments allegedly retrieved from beneath the presidential limousine's jump seat. This revelation, chronicled in Breach of Trust (pp. 49-50), never saw the light of public scrutiny, as both the FBI and Warren Commission elected to sequester Heilberger's findings from the official record, and notably, his testimony was conspicuously absent from their proceedings. One ponders the alacrity with which the Commission might have embraced Heilberger's testimony had it tilted the scales of evidence towards Oswald's guilt in the Walker affair.

In the police report filed by Officers Van Cleave and McElroy, the authors noted that the projectile was steel jacketed. Both local Dallas newspapers, and an Associated Press story depicted the projectile as being 30.06 in caliber. (James DiEugenio, The JFK Assassination: The Evidence Today, p. 100) But three weeks after the assassination, the FBI now had transformed the bullet to a 6.5 caliber, copper jacketed projectile. In fact, the bullet today in the National Archives, allegedly shot at Walker, is copper coated. But none of the Dallas policemen who handled that bullet were called to testify under oath before the Commission. (ibid) In other words, unlike what Mallon and Ruth Paine told their spectators, the eyewitness testimony and the ballistics evidence is exculpatory of Oswald.

I now wish to posit some questions to Mrs. Paine & Mr. Mallon regarding some substantial inconsistencies in their narrative surrounding Oswald's guilt in this case.

Marina testified that Lee allegedly extracted the rifle from their Neely Street residence three days before the attempt, concealing it in bushes near Walker's home. However, this raises significant questions about the practicality and rationality of such a decision. Why would a logical individual choose to stow this surplus WWII, Mannlicher Carcano, in a bush for an extended period, subjecting it to various environmental elements, only to later retrieve it for an assassination attempt? This scenario, frankly, challenges the bounds of credibility. (Breach of Trust; p.53)

Storing a rifle in a bush for three days before committing a crime poses several significant issues:

      1. Weather Damage:The rifle's exposure to rain, humidity, or extreme temperatures could impair its functionality, leading to potential malfunctions.
      2. Rust and Corrosion: Continuous exposure to moisture and air might result in rust, which could negatively affect the rifle's accuracy and reliability.
      3. Dirt and Debris: Accumulation of dirt and debris could obstruct the barrel or jam the firing mechanism, hindering the rifle's operational efficiency.
      4. Visibility and Discovery Risk: Concealing a rifle in a public or semi-public area substantially increases the likelihood of it being discovered by others, potentially leading to premature arrest or the foiling of the planned crime.
      5. Damage to Ammunition: If ammunition is also stored under similar conditions, its efficacy and reliability could be compromised.
      6. Mechanical Failures:The rifle's prolonged exposure to outdoor elements could lead to mechanical failures in its moving parts, affecting its performance.
      7. Inconsistent Performance: Environmental conditions may alter the rifle's condition, resulting in inconsistent performance and reduced accuracy.
      8. Legal Risks: Discovery of the rifle by authorities could lead to early detection and intervention, preventing the crime.
      9. Compromised Concealment: The need to retrieve the rifle from a public location heightens the risk of being seen and identified before committing the crime.
        Marina Oswald testified: That she accosted Lee over the Carcano’s whereabouts in the immediate aftermath of the Walker attempt; "Where is the rifle? What did you do with it? ‘Lee’ said that he had left it somewhere, that he had buried it, it seems to me, somewhere far from that place, because he said dogs could find it by smell. I don't know---I am not a criminologist”. (Volume I; p.16)
      10. How did Oswald bury a rifle in the ground without using a spade and shovel or any implement other than his bare hands?
      11. How did he protect the rifle from corrosion and other damage to be expected if the rifle was buried in soil for some four days or more?
      12. If he used no protective wrappings, why did the microscopic examination of the rifle by FBI Expert Paul Stombaugh on November 23, 1963 reveal no traces of soil?
      13. Since Oswald ostensibly buried the rifle in the dark of night, how did he locate the place of burial some four days later? And how did he dig it up without a shovel or any other implement?
      14. How is it that many searches of Oswald’s property and possessions by local officers and federal agents uncovered no rifle cleaning equipment.(Sylvia Meagher, Accessories After The Fact; p.129)
      15. During his testimony before the Warren Commission, General Edwin Walker was not presented with Commission Exhibit 573 for authentication, despite his role in the custody chain. Why?
      16. Why was the DPD officers, who were present that night at the Walker residence, Van Cleave, McElroy, Tucker and Norvell not called to give testimony before the Warren Commission?
      17. Why was Walter Kirk Coleman not called to testify before the Warren Commission?
      18. Why are there no contemporaneous photographs of the Walker bullet, taken on April 10, 1963, in the record?
      19. Who were the two men observed by Robert Surrey scoping out General Edwin Walker's residence two nights before the attempt on his life, and what were their motives for such reconnaissance?
      20. What is the chain of custody for the Walker bullet?
      21. How do you interpret the fact that Lee Oswald was not considered a suspect in the Walker case until after his death, which means the charge is post-mortem.

If Lee Harvey Oswald had been brought to trial for the alleged attempt on General Edwin Walker's life, the task facing Dallas District Attorney Henry Wade would have been daunting, to say the least. The prosecution's case would have been fraught with a series of significant hurdles, each casting a shadow of doubt over Oswald's culpability. Key among these were the logistical improbabilities – the complex chain of events leading up to the incident that seemed almost too convoluted to be feasible. Coupled with this were glaring inconsistencies in the evidence presented, gaps large enough in the witness testimonies to drive a truck through, and serious procedural questions that begged to be answered.

To surmount these formidable challenges, the prosecution would have needed more than just the usual evidentiary fare; it would have required exceptionally strong and unimpeachable alternative evidence, alongside coherent and convincing explanations to iron out the existing inconsistencies. The absence of direct testimonies and conclusive photographic evidence only compounded the issue, necessitating an even more persuasive argument to bridge these gaps.

It's noteworthy that, to this day, no one, whether officially or unofficially, has truly grappled with these glaring deficiencies in the case against Oswald for the attempted assassination of General Walker. The shortcomings in the case are not merely minor quibbles or legal technicalities; they represent fundamental flaws that go to the very heart of the judicial process and the principles of fair trial and justice. For any defense attorney, these issues would not just be talking points; they would be central pillars of a defense strategy rooted in the bedrock of reasonable doubt.

“I had no way of knowing that Oswald attacked me. I still don't. And I am not very prone to say in fact he did.” Edwin Walker. (Volume X1; p.426)

Thomas Mallon Praises the Warren Commission

“Before publication of the Warren Report, there was the irresistible reaction against the audacity of those who loudly proclaimed the dead man’s guilt but asked those who had doubts to keep silent. After the Report, there was something even more irresistible: the feeling that, in this case, silence would give consent to injustice.” Leo Sauvage. (see this)

Thomas Mallon. All these years later, how do you feel The Commission, that Report, it still essentially holds up?

Ruth Paine. Oh yea, oh yea. They were very thorough...

Advocating for the Warren Report's conclusions, 60 years after the fact, is not just a matter of differing historical interpretation; it's a position that, quite frankly, borders on the delusional or suggests a profound misapprehension of the facts. In my detailed analysis in 'Assassination 60', particularly in point 13, I underline the profound skepticism held by key figures regarding the Report. Notably, Bobby Kennedy dismissed it as 'a shoddy piece of craftsmanship,' a stark indictment from a figure intimately connected to the events.

Sylvia Meagher."It was appalling to find how many of the Commission's statements were unsupportable or even completely contradicted by the testimony and/or exhibits. I began to list what is now a long series of deliberate misrepresentations, omissions, distortions, and other defects demonstrating not only extreme bias, incompetence, and carelessness but irrefutable instances of dishonesty.” (Praise from a Future Generation; pp. 149-150)

Penn Jones Jr. "I really believe that the only way you can believe the Warren Report is not to read it.” (Praise from a Future Generation; p. 130)

The Commission's credibility is further eroded by the dissent within its own ranks. Commissioners Richard Russell, Hale Boggs, and John Cooper explicitly expressed their disbelief in the Single Bullet Theory (SBT), a cornerstone of the Commission's findings. John Sherman Cooper was unequivocal: “I could not convince myself that the same bullet struck both of them. No, I wasn't convinced by [the SBT]. Neither was Senator Russell.” (James DiEugenio, JFK Revisited, pp. 30-31)

Hale Boggs voiced similar concerns, "I had strong doubts about it [the single bullet theory], the question was never resolved.” (Edward Epstein, Inquest; pp.149-150)

Commissioner Gerald Ford told French President d’Estaing that the President’s murder “was something set up. We were sure it was a set up, but we were not able to discover by whom.” (JFK Revisited; p. 57)

Even more damning is the disbelief expressed by Richard Russell, a sentiment shared by President Lyndon Johnson himself: “...they said that they believed…that the Commission believed that the same bullet which hit Kennedy hit Conaolly… well I don't believe it.” To which Johnson replied, “I don't either.” (Phone call of 9/18/64).

In the fantastic new collaborative book The JFK Assassination Chokeholds by Jim DiEugenio. Paul Bleau, Matt Crumpton, Andrew Iler and Mark Adamczyk, Professor Bleau presents a modern, critical examination of the Warren Report, demonstrating conclusively that the official record challenges, rather than supports, the Commission’s findings. This contemporary analysis further undermines the Report's standing.

Perhaps the most scathing indictment comes from the late United States Senator Richard Schweiker, who declared, “The Warren Commission has in fact collapsed like a house of cards and I believe it was a set up at the time to feed pablum to the American people for reasons yet known, and one of the biggest cover-ups in the history of our country occurred at the time.” (JFK Revisited, p. 108)

A Tumultuous Marriage?

Thomas Mallon. “Not everybody knows (this) about Oswald, he was not a good husband... he beat Marina, this is very well documented in Pricilla McMillian’s book...”

Lee and Marina Oswald's marriage remains a subject of intrigue and speculation. While Lee's character has often been scrutinised, Marina's role in their relationship is less frequently examined.

In a memorandum written in 1964, Norman Redlich reports that, “James H. Martin stated that (after the assassination) he had consciously attempted to create a public image of Marina Oswald as a simple, devoted housewife who had suffered at the hands of her husband and who was now filled with remorse for her husband’s actions and deeply grateful for the generosity and understanding of the American people... As Martin’s testimony indicates, there is a strong possibility that Marina Oswald is in fact a very different person— cold, calculating, avaricious, scornful of generosity, and capable of an extreme lack of sympathy in personal relationships. A wife who married him for selfish motives, degraded him in public (and) taunted him about his inadequacies…” (see this)

The George and Jeanne De Mohrenschildt testimonies also revel the mutual abuse the young couple would engage it.

George DeMohrenschildt.“I don't like a woman who bitches at her husband all the time, and she did, you know. She annoyed him. She bickered. She brought the worst out in him. And she told us after they would get a fight, you know, that she was fighting also. She would scratch him also. 'He has been beating me', but she said, 'I fight him back also…She was annoying him all the time 'Why don't you make some money?', why don't they have a car, why don't they have more dresses, look at everybody else living so well, and they are just miserable flunkeys. She was annoying him all the time. Poor guy was going out of his mind. She openly said he didn't see her physically--right in front of him. She said, 'He sleeps with me just once a month, and I never get any satisfaction out of it.' A rather crude and completely straightforward thing to say in front of relative strangers, as we were." (Volume IX; p. 166-284)

Jeanne De Morenschildt....His greatest objection was that people helped them too much, they were showering things on Marina. Marina had a hundred dresses given to her…He objected to that lavish help, because Marina was throwing it into his face. He could never give her what the people were showering on her. So that was very difficult for him, no matter how hard he worked--and he worked very hard. (Volume IX; p. 309)

The Assassination & Mrs Paine

Mrs. Paine, in a response to a question from Mr. Mallon, then highlights her displeasure at the recent documentary by researcher Max Good, The Assassination and Mrs. Paine. She states;

Ruth Paine. “What troubles me is, for instance there is this new DVD out... Mrs Paine and the murder of John F. Kennedy... I asked him, you know, what do you think, what is your opinion about the attempt on Walker and he (Max) says well I don't think that happened. So that's how some of the plot people, follow their stories, they just take what they want and leave the rest alone, and that is not good research.”

Thomas Mallon.“Yea, which is the way they pick and choose from the Warren Report, the different ‘facts’”.

I was interested if Max had seen this segment, so I reached out to him and asked what his thoughts were on it;

Max Good.“I think Ruth was referring in this talk to my meeting with her several months ago, which was set up and filmed by the producers of "Four Died Trying." She did ask me my thoughts on the Walker shooting. I believe I said that I had doubts that it happened the way the official story describes. The way Ruth states it in this talk with Mallon, it sounds like I am denying that anything happened. In reality, I believe the Walker shooting was probably a staged event and that if Oswald was involved, it was as a pawn. The evidence throws all kinds of doubt on the official story, including the type of bullet not matching Oswald's rifle and a witness seeing two suspects each leaving in separate cars. I've never heard Ruth discuss any of these details of the investigation. She seems to depend solely on the dubious "Walker note" and testimony of Marina, and the conclusions of the Warren Commission. It seems that she's just as guilty of "taking what she wants and leaving the rest alone." (Personal Correspondence) (buy the documentary here)

With the session now moving into its question-and-answer phase, Mr. Mallon assumed the role of a careful gatekeeper, sifting through and discarding the numerous inquiries presented to him. He selectively allowed only a subset of questions, primarily the less challenging ones, to be presented to Mrs. Paine. More demanding questions put forward by Dealey Plaza UK members in the audience were amongst those discarded. In this sea of generally unremarkable questions, however, there was one that emerged as notably intriguing. This question is detailed below.

Thomas Mallon. “Ruth someone asks, do you think Dallas being The City of Hate, as it was sometimes called, because there was such fierce opposition to Kennedy, do you think any of that motivated Oswald”

Ruth Paine.“No... no... no, he (Oswald) saw an opportunity on Wednesday morning, and he fired the gun on Friday.

Thomas Mallon. ...And the really awful part of the journey home (from New Orleans to Dallas) was you didn't know that one of the items, that was in the car, that he had packed, that was with everything... and one of the things in the car was the rifle.

Ruth Paine.“It has to have been.”

Thomas Mallon.“Yes.”

Ruth Paine.“There were two large Marine duffel bags, standing this high, he could have easily put a full-fledged rifle, it wouldn't even have to have been broken down to fit in there, so yea, looking back it has to have been in there.”

In a notable deviation from recent disclosures, Mrs. Paine had testified to the Warren Commission about Oswald’s luggage and the alleged concealment of the Mannlicher-Carcano rifle within. When probed specifically about the possibility of these bags containing a long, slim object like a rifle, Mrs. Paine firmly denied noticing anything that would suggest the presence of such an item, asserting that the bags appeared to be filled with clothes and showed no signs of concealing a weapon. (Volume II; p. 462-463)

Let He Who is Without Sin, Cast the First Stone

Thomas Mallon.“He (Oswald) was not shy about asking for favours sometimes, one of the extraordinary things he did on the Saturday (November 23rd) after the assassination, when he was in the Dallas City Jail, he called and what did he want?

Ruth Paine.“... he called and wanted me to contact a man named John Abt, who had acted as a lawyer for the American Communist Party, he gave me a phone number, this is Saturday, the day after the assassination. So, I did as he asked, rang up the phone and nobody answered, which is not really a surprise.

Thomas Mallon.“But he was still willing to be helped by you, a day after he had upended, you're own life.”

Ruth Paine.“Oh yes”

Michael Paine was a Christian Unitarian, and Ruth came from a Quaker background. Quakerism is sometimes called the Society of Friends. Quakerism arose in England as a religion without creeds, or clergy. A religion coming from an Inner Light. Quakerism is usually attributed in America to the founding of Pennsylvania by William Penn. In addition, that state is usually considered one of the hotbeds of the American Revolution and the Bill of Rights, the latter of which is perhaps what the revolution was about. Oswald had a right to counsel, he was also supposedly granted the presumption of innocence. Therefore according to both religion and the American Creed what was so jarring about Oswald requesting Ruth to make a call for an attorney?

What makes this even worse is that neither Mallon nor Paine ever refer to how Greg Olds of the local American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) was apparently bamboozled in his attempt to represent Oswald by the Dallas Police. (WC Vol. 7, pp. 322-25) But here is the capper that Mallon never asked: “Ruth were not you and your husband members of the ACLU? And did not your husband take Oswald to an ACLU meeting? And did not Oswald later join that group?” (Philip Melanson, Spy Saga, pp. 56-57) The icing on the cake would be this: the ACLU came to prominence due to the deprivation of legal rights during the Palmer Raids.

The Final Curtain

Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored. Aldous Huxley.

Thomas Mallon. “Fundamentally as we look back... do you think the assassination fundamentally was more of a psychological crime rather than a political crime? Meaning it grew form Oswald's psychology more than from any ideology he picked up?”

Ruth Paine.“His life wasn't going well at all, and he wanted to be a big shot and he was not.”

From the moment of Lee Oswald’s arrest on November 22, a narrative of presumption has shrouded him in guilt. This presumption was swiftly embraced by Dallas Police and Prosecution officials and eagerly disseminated by the media. As the soul of the nation was entrenched in grief, the martyred President’s remains were solemnly returned to Washington, and Oswald’s guilt was prematurely declared aboard Air Force One.

The Dallas officials quickly branded Oswald—a man without an attorney-- as the sole assassin, casting an unjust shadow over his reputation and grossly violating that bedrock of American jurisprudence: the presumption of innocence. Yet, a crucial inquiry persists: What definitive evidence did they possess to warrant such a precipitous rush to judgment?

A critical examination of the evidence reveals a narrative fraught with inconsistencies, credibility issues with key evidence, and outright fabrications, suggesting a narrative far more complex and disturbing than Oswald’s solitary guilt. The tampering with evidence, the distortion of facts, and the neglect of judicial fairness hint at a conspiracy that does not include Lee Oswald.

The failure to conduct a comprehensive and impartial investigation into the full scope of President Kennedy’s assassination has not only failed Oswald but has veiled the truth from both the American people and the world at large.

Faced with such profound doubts, it becomes our imperative duty to challenge the oversimplified and unfounded assertions advanced by Mrs. Paine & Mr. Mallon. In the face of such overwhelming doubts, it is our fundamental duty to reject the simplified and unsupported claims of Oswald’s guilt.
