(PART 242)


>>> "[Lee Harvey Oswald] did not spill the beans in the first 48 hours because he believed they would (the FBI, CIA and military intelligence) get him out of this sticky situation. This is why he was killed when he was killed, as these forces had to know he would be at the point of realizing he was sold out, and they had to shut him up before he left the DPD jail. Why else was LHO so calm when talking with his brother?" <<<


Because a guilty man like Oswald (a man who knows he's guilty of two murders and who also almost certainly expected to be caught) doesn't really need to be nervous. He knows he's guilty...and he also knows that he's very likely going to get what's coming to him.

On the other hand, an innocent "patsy" is likely to be climbing the walls of the DPD jail. Was Oswald doing that?

In other words, did Lee Harvey Oswald act like a person who was unjustly charged with two murders he did not commit? Or did he act more like a guilty person who seemed very content and satisfied to just sit back and let the cops (as LHO himself said) "figure it out"?


"No one knew Oswald as well as his wife, Marina. .... Marina told [Priscilla] McMillan that when she visited her husband in jail on the day after the assassination, she came away knowing he was guilty. .... She said she knew that had he been innocent, he would have been screaming to high heaven for his "rights," claiming he had been mistreated and demanding to see officials at the very highest levels." -- Vincent Bugliosi; Page 962 of "RECLAIMING HISTORY" (c.2007)


"The reader [of pro-conspiracy books] will understand the difficulty these writers have sidestepped if he or she tries to invent a story that explains why an INNOCENT Oswald went to Irving for 'curtain rods', left his wedding ring behind the next morning, brought a package into the Depository, and so on. Because the evidence against Oswald is strong, any detailed reconstruction that argues a frame-up will inevitably sound less plausible than one that argues his guilt." -- Jean Davison; Page 276 of "OSWALD'S GAME" (c.1983)
