THE JFK CASE: THE TWELVE WHO BUILT THE OSWALD LEGEND (Part One: Mother, Meyer, and the Spotters)
This is the first in a series of essays explaining the background of the twelve handlers of Lee Harvey Oswald during the last four years of his life. It is a gripping story of espionage, based on documents in the National Archives. Ask the House Oversight Committee to release both the JFK files and the MLK files. US history should not be wrapped in mystery. Many of the key issues have already been resolved.
Thursday, September 2, 2011 THE JFK CASE: THE TWELVE THAT BUILT THE OSWALD LEGEND (Part 2: An Instant Visa Gets The Marine Into Moscow)
(1 comments) Second in a series that discusses the twelve people that created the Oswald legend. Here: Oswald’s experience with the U-2 while in the Marines, how Oswald managed to cadge an instant visa from the Soviets to enter the USSR, how American officials protected Oswald after he told them he would give radar secrets to the Soviet Union. And what was the relationship between Oswald and defector Robert Webster? They could be twins.

(1 comments) Third in the series. This chapter focuses on how Lee Harvey Oswald threatened to reveal military secrets to the Soviets about the U-2, and how US counterintelligence used his file as a “marked card” to capture supposed Communist spies who were trying to infiltrate the CIA.

THE JFK CASE: THE TWELVE WHO BUILT THE OSWALD LEGEND (Part 4: When the U-2 Goes Down, Oswald is Ready to Return)
(1 comments) This chapter reveals the story behind the 1960 U-2 incident. A renegade NSA agent, Jack Dunlap, tipped off the Soviets about flights over the USSR…which led to the Soviets shooting down the U-2. Oswald’s boss at the radio/TV factory in Minsk, Don Alejandro Ziger, was ostensibly an alienated White Russian. Oswald used to work on the U-2. The legend is that Ziger tipped Oswald that his work was done and he should go home.

THE JFK CASE: THE TWELVE WHO BUILT THE OSWALD LEGEND (Part 5: The Double Dangle)
(2 comments) Lee Oswald and Robert Webster were “dangles”, brought together by the FBI and the CIA to entice the Soviets. Robert Webster defected to the USSR to learn more about the Soviet defense program. Radar operator Oswald defected to learn what the Soviets knew about the U-2. Descriptions of the two men were subtly altered for use in “molehunt” exercises designed to look for leaks and capture spies who repeated these descriptions.
