Lee Harvey Oswald: a Modern, Updated Biography

Lee Harvey Oswald: a Modern, Updated Biography

Ratings: (0)|Views: 5,026|Likes:
Published by Judyth Vary Baker
This modern, updated biography of Lee Harvey Oswald avoids bias, presenting arguments in the case, witness statements, and URLs for up-to-date YouTube films that offer the reader more than the standard 'official version' fare. As a public service for researchers, students and the general public, this biography will be regularly updated to provide information on the latest evidence available. The biography was written as a correlated response to the flawed Wikipedia biography after researchers with new evidence and information, as well as those who objected to biased and incomplete content at the Wikipedia site, saw their efforts to correct the Wikipedia version to an unbiased version censored even in the smallest detail, such as refusing to add that oswald obtained his GED in the Marines, leaving the impression that Oswald was "a high school dropout" though he left high school to join the Marines,and there studied and passed his high school equivalency exams. The repression of information that might show Oswald in a positive or neutral light occurs in the Wikipedia biography throughout its length. Therefore, editors at the Lee Harvey Oswald Fact-Check Committee (archives are online at google groups) deemed it necessary to present a rounded and full portrait of Oswald, that the public, researchers and scholars might gain a better understanding of Oswald, the accused assassin, and of the case, relying on new historic facts that were often obscured or absent in the Wikipedia biography. The Lee Harvey Oswald Fact-Check Committee that has helped to write this article is composed of a panel of researchers, witnesses and writers dedicated to presenting as much information about Lee Harvey Oswald and the Kennedy assassination as possible, within one reference article. Judyth Vary Baker helped write this biography and is dedicated to making the public aware of this modern and updated version of Oswald's life. The biography serves the need of the Internet community for a comprehensive biography of Lee Harvey Oswald that contains a wide spectrum of information, instead of the identical, narrow and negative articles and their excerpts that appear at dozens of websites in a typical Internet search.

INTRODUCTION TO THE CASE
Oswald’s full biography is presented below this introduction.
Any biography of Oswald should first mention why an unbiased biography is necessary. To this end, anintroduction to the case is presented here, before entering the full chronology of Oswald’s life. Oswaldwas the officially accused assassin of President John F. Kennedy, who was shot in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963. However, Kennedy had many enemies, and a “Wanted for Treason” poster was seeneverywhere in Dallas that day. Oswald was almost immediately singled out as the only gunman. Arrestedat 1:40 PM, a mere 70 minutes after Kennedy’s murder, Oswald’s arrest sheet states: “This man shot andkilled President John F. Kennedy and Police Officer J. D. Tippit. He also shot and wounded

Bias is a problem in extant “official version” Internet biographies. For example, one website(www.answers.com/topic/lee-harvey-oswald ) states, “Oswald was a drifter...”
But
Oswald was not adrifter: he lived at home until age 17, then left high school to join the Marines, where he spent almostthree years, after which he entered the USSR, where he married, worked in an electronics factory fornearly three years, then returned with wife and child to the US. There he lived and worked until hisdeath a year and a half later. Efforts to amend the false statement “Oswald was a drifter” provedimpossible.
 
John Connally.”

This statement was signed by two arresting officers and by Dallas Police Captain WillFritz, who filed charges the same day. The statement does not say that Oswald is a suspect. It presumedhis guilt: no hunt for any other gunman was conducted after Oswald’s arrest,
3
and FBI director J. Edgar Hoover called off investigations of other possible assassins.
4
The FBI quickly declared
 
Oswald guilty,though the Bureau acted without the right to adjudge in matters of local jurisdiction.
5
It must be also benoted that “(d)espite physical abuse and absolute isolation, Oswald continued to state that he wasinnocent. Each previous assassin of an American president immediately and boastfully declared that theact was his.”
6
Two investigations, after Oswald’s death by murder, were conducted: first, by The WarrenCommission (WC), whose investigation relied on the findings of the FBI, and later by the House SelectCommittee on Assassinations (HSCA), which complained that information was withheld by the CIA.
7
Both concluded Oswald was guilty, though the HSCA established there was a conspiracy involved, basedon recorded acoustic evidence.
8
However, the recorded acoustic evidence was probably invalid. However,seasoned Parkland Hospital emergency room doctors who inspected Kennedy to determine the nature of his wounds reported he had a gaping hole in the back of his head, in stark contrast to later autopsy reportsmade by military doctors describing nothing but a small entry bullet wound in the back of Kennedy’shead. There are so many eyewitnesses to the exit wound as the Parkand Hospital doctors and personneldescribed it that honest researchers conclude, taking into account other problems (such as suspiciousautopsy photos, and the fact that Kennedy’s brain, which would have provided proof of which directionthe bullet came from, has “gone missing”) that the Zapruder film showing Kennedy struck from the front

OSWALD WAS CHARGED WITH TWO MURDERS ON NOV. 22 AND ONE “INTENT TO MURDER”ON NOV. 22,1963
Also, in WC Vol. XX David Johnston Ex. No. 5, p. 323, an affidavitsigned Nov. 23, 1963, by Robert E. McKinney charged that Oswald “
with malice and aforethought did make anassault with intent… to murder”
Gov. Connally. This was called a “rush to judgment” by attorney Mark Lane.

Douglas Givens, also an employee at the building where Oswald worked, was named at 1:46p.m.when Inspector J.H. Sawyer broadcast this message over police radios: "…see if we can pick this manup. Charles Douglas Givens, G-I-V-E-N-S. He's a colored male, thirty-seven, six foot three, a hundredsixty-five pounds…ID number in the Sheriff's Department, 37954. He's a porter that worked on thisfloor up here. He has a police record and he left.
 
depicts the truth – meaning Oswald could not fire the fatal bullet, since his position was in a building behind Kennedy when the bullet struck.

Typical is the testimony of Dr. Robert McClelland, a physicianin the emergency room who observed that the back right part of the head was blown out, along with posterior cerebral tissue, and that some cerebellar tissue was missing.
The size of the back head wound,according to his description, indicated it was an exit wound, and that a second shooter from the frontdelivered the fatal head shot. Clint Hill, the Secret Service Agent who was sheltering the President withhis body on the way to the hospital, said "The right rear portion of his head was missing. It was lying inthe rear seat of the car." 
Reports that Hill “pushed” Jackie Kennedy back into the car abound, but shesaid she was retrieving a piece of her husband’s brain that had been blown out onto the trunk of the car.She carried it in her hand to the hospital.Read more at:

The official FBI website states:”After conducting some 25,000 interviews and running down tens of thousands of investigative leads, the FBI found that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone.” … (This) nationaltragedy
produced another expansion of FBI jurisdiction.
When…Kennedy was assassinated, thecrime was a local homicide; no federal law addressed the murder of a President. Nevertheless,President Lyndon B. Johnson
 
tasked the Bureau with conducting the investigation. Congress thenpassed a new law to ensure that any such act in the future would be a federal crime.” Source: FBIofficial website: http://www.fbi.gov/libref/historic/history/text.htm

In 2003, Law Professor G. Robert Blakey, former Chief Counsel to the HSCA, wrote a scathingindictment of the CIA for obstructing the investigation of the HSCA, based on new evidence: "…I nowno longer believe anything the Agency told the committee any further than I can obtain substantialcorroboration for it from outside the Agency for its veracity."
