The photos at the conceal convey the appropriate facet of Lee Oswald's face (from a 1959 passport picture of 'Lee Harvey Oswald') and the left part of the face of 'Harvey Oswald' (from his Dallas reserving picture in 1963), revealing that those have been various males!

The key to JFK’s assassination isn't the guilt of Lee Oswald, a CIA agreement agent – he was once to blame of conspiracy, treason and homicide – however the innocence of ‘Harvey Oswald,’ an worker of the Texas institution publication Depository and an agent of the workplace of Naval Intelligence (ONI), the CIA and the FBI, who used to be murdered through Jack Ruby.

That photo contains the historical past of Harvey as a juvenile immigrant fluent in Russian, and the production of the second one ‘Lee Harvey Oswald’ and the second one ‘Marguerite Oswald.’ the image maintains with the recruitment of either Lee Oswald and Harvey Oswald by way of the ONI and the CIA, by way of Harvey’s assumption of Lee’s identification, his ‘defection’ to Russia, and Lee’s involvement with the Cuban revolution and the CIA.

The legend expands into New Orleans, the place Harvey is “sheep-dipped” to appear like a fervent pro-Castro sympathizer and the place he starts to be sucked into the Kennedy assassination plot via his renegade CIA handler. eventually, not able to regulate his future, he lands up at the steps of the Dallas university e-book Depository, whereas Lee Oswald is inside of at the 6th flooring taking pictures on the president.

Harvey’s whereabouts on November 22, 1963 are tracked minute through minute, exhibiting that he couldn't were the place the Warren fee claimed he was once. in any case, in fact, Harvey was once murdered by means of a similar cabal that killed JFK and used to be falsely accused through the Warren fee, the FBI, and the CIA of being a killer and traitor, while it was once his accusers who have been the killers and traitors. a few formerly undisclosed conspirators within the Texas college e-book Depository are also published.
