I hope you don't mind me replying, obviously your questions are to Jim Marrs but hopefully that doesn't bar discussion in the meantime. Imagine me
with a beard if it helps.
I was reading through a transcript
day, that Mae Brussell compiled of everything that Oswald said from the moment he was arrested at the movie theatre until he was shot by Ruby. There
is nothing there that really jumps out, but when I read through Wean's explanation, as provided by 'John' it didn't really gel.
I can accept that Oswald was a 'patsy' and Oswald at one point defintely refers to himself as one. I just I don't buy the story that Oswald was
'in on' a fake assassination attempt. In fact I don't buy the fake assassination attempt at all, doesn't it seem a little 'cheesy' to you? It
is all so innocently quaint.
Oswald has always appeared to me to be intelligent. If he had been involved in a 'fake' attempt that had somehow ended in a real death, I do think
we would see more in the transcript that he was shocked. He seems unconcerned at times, impatient at others, but not surprised and never frightened.
Wouldn't you expect, even a trained soldier to be a little frightened by the thought he may have 'accidently' shot the president of the US.
Wouldn't he be grilling his captors for information, trying to ascertain what had happened???? As an ex-soldier he would realise that his mission
had gone horribly wrong. And yet not a flutter. So while I can believe he may have fired at least one of the shots that hit JFK, I also believe it
if that is the case he had intended to hit JFK.
It may be possible that it was planned to be a fake, but whoever was in the middle decided that it shouldn't be a fake after all and told the gunman,
Oswald or whoever else may have been in the depository, to aim at the president. Which could mean that that person was working for other interests
altogether - a double agent, there has never been any shortage of those.
I also note that Wean makes little or no reference to the Paine's and De Mohrenschildt who had significant influence at that time in Oswald's life.
The first tip off pointing at Oswald for the shooting came from Michael Paine's place of work, Bell Aerospace, where he worked under Walter
Personally I have never come across a satisfactory answer as to why I self-confessed marxist like Oswald would consort with someone like de
What I do like about Wean's version though, is the implication that the assassination attempt would have instilled a fear of communism into JFK. JFK
was obviously more concerned about the seeming incompetence of his own countrymen than the threat of communism. I have an inclining in fact that JFKs
assassination was more about the 'Ich bin Berliner' speech than the Bay of Pigs or anything else for that matter.
So while I think that Wean's account may be genuine, in that he was in fact given this information by the source he identifies and that it may have
been a real plan in some minds within the US SIS, I don't think that Oswald (or whoever fired the shots from the depositoy) was informed of that
plan. Does that make sense?
Incidently, I did watch the films you posted on your wildly popular thread. I didn't see anything noteworthy though, I couldn't see into the
windows. The film of the secret service men pulling out that you also link to though was mind blowing, talk about an image expressing a thousand
words (I have no sound on my pc so if there was commentary it passed me by). Do you know who it was that ordered that the Secret Service escort stand
