The Framing of Lee Harvey Oswald on the Internet: an Introduction
by Judyth Vary Baker
A timeline (“Interactive Timeline of the Life of Lee Harvey Oswald”) written by Tracy Parnell, and sponsored by John McAdams, the Warren Commission apologist, asserts “facts” about Oswald that are unproven or have been disproven. In addition, “facts” are presented as determined by the Warren Commission as if they are true and proven when they are merely speculative. For example, the timeline asserts as “fact” that Oswald shot at General Walker. Though Lee Oswald never told the author anything about the Walker incident itself, as to his participation, he did tell me that he feared for his safety due to the incident, when he was ordered to pass out pro-Castro flyers soon after the incident took place. His undated note to Marina about his possible arrest or being killed is supposed to be ‘evidence’ that he participated in the Walker shooting incident, but Lee told me he had advised Marina on what to do if he should be arrested or killed because he feared what Dallas police might do to him by creating a pro-Castro scene only five days after the Walker incident.the kennedy assassination,JFK,Kennedy,oswald
The undated note for Marina tells her how to get help, etc. if Lee happened to get arrested or killed in Dallas (Lee told this writer that he feared being arrested or shot by riled-up Police after the Walker incident occurred). Lee was ordered to conduct a pro-Castro demonstration on the streets of Dallas five days after the Walker incident. This event is on record:
The note…(undated) used to damn Oswald.
In the chronology given to me by Mary Ferrell, a date has been falsely ascribed to this note because Marina said she got it before Oswald shot at Walker, even though she also said she was horrified to learn of the event after it happened:
In his April 10 note to Marina, Oswald says, "...the money from work will probably be coming. The money will be
sent to our post office box." (WC Vol 16, p. 1)
This is a very important statement. When did Lee Oswald get his very last check from Jaggars-Chiles-Stovall? Its date, and the date it was cashed, can tell us a lot about when the note itself was actually written.
And here –shockingly –or maybe not, since this is often the case concerning evidence and Oswald--we find that the check has been tampered with, as explained by author-researcher Harrison E. Livingstone on p. 12 in his book
The Radical Right and the Murder of John F. Kennedy: Stunning Evidence
in the Assassination of the President (Trafford, 2004):
“Oswald’s last check at Jaggars-Chiles-Stovall, #5811, issued on April 10,
1963, shows possible tampering…there are two “paid” stamps on the face,
One dated April 12, and one dated March, 1963…”
(photoshot from computer screen)
Oswald’s last check was stamped as cashed on April 12 AND in March. That’s not possible, so we can’t conclude that Oswald’s signature is on the check or that check #5811 was ever issued to Oswald. What if Oswald had been issued a check at a later date?
If Oswald’s check was actually cashed after April 15, when Oswald made the pro-Castro demonstration, it might have noticed that the note actually referred to the dangers Oswald feared due to being ordered to put on the Pro-Castro demonstration so close to the Walker incident. That would wipe out the value of the “Walker note.” As it is, two stamps are on this “Oswald check”-- once for March (!) and once for April:
Note two “cashed” stamps (left & center)
Note “April 12” stamp—meaning the check was cashed April 12, as well as a stamp for March 1? on Oswald’s so-called April 10 paycheck. Somebody boo-boo’d.
The HSCA used Marina’s testimony to conclude Oswald shot at Walker, largely based on the undated note:
“This undated note, although it did not mention General Walker, clearly indicated that Oswald was about to attempt an act during the course of which he
might be killed or taken into custody.” But there’s the report of Oswald’s pro-Castro demonstration that he told me he faithfully performed, despite danger to himself, only 5 days after Walker was shot at, which was ignored:
“April 15, 1963 (Monday) - Oswald passes out Fair Play for Cuba Committee literature on Main Street in Dallas. Oswald had a 'Viva Castro' sign around his neck. The police report (5/15/64) says this happened in late spring or early summer at Main and Ervay in front of H. L. Green store entrance. (WC Vol 22, p. 796; WC 23, p. 477; WC Vol 25, p. 681; Dallas Times Herald, 12/9/63; Life, 2/21/64, p. 76) “ (Ref: Ferrell Chronology)
These revelations are ignored by the Oswald-did-it folks, even though Lee’s note was not dated and Marina’s information cannot be relied upon for accuracy concerning the Walker incident. For example, Marina claimed Lee hid the rifle under his raincoat as he walked (one version) or rode (another version) a bus to Walker’s house—though Lee never did own a raincoat. She said he buried the rifle (one version) or hid the rifle in bushes (another version) before (in one version) and after using it.
This writer, a witness who knew Oswald in New Orleans, never saw a rifle in Lee’s possession, and there has been no believable explanation of how “Lee’s” rifle made it unseen to Dallas from New Orleans. Nosy neighbors in New Orleans never reported seeing any rifle, though Marina said Lee dry-fired it for hours on their very visible screened porch at 4905 Magazine Street, which at the time had no bushes hiding the porch from full view. Neighbors instead reported seeing Lee reading for hours on the porch, even when they had unkind things to say about the accused assassin.
The Interactive Timeline Revisited
With these considerations in mind, it is time to look at the “Interactive Timeline” which is (unfortunately) quoted so frequently by students, teachers, researchers and others, straight from the internet.
The “Interactive Timeline” comes up immediately when seeking Lee’s biography. Not only does it assert that Lee shot at Walker: it also offers as “fact” that Lee ordered a rifle and a revolver, despite massive evidence we now know exists that decry such statements.
One portion of this carelessly assembled timeline, concerning the ordering of a rifle and a revolver, as if by Oswald, offers dates between January 28, 1962 (sic) and March 25, 1963 for these events. It is an excellent example of how the Timeline is being used to frame Oswald to this very day. Here are the entries:
January 28, 1962 (sic): LHO orders a .38 caliber Smith and Wesson revolver by mail.
February 13, 1963: The Oswalds attend a dinner party at the home of the De
February 22, 1963: The Oswalds attend a dinner party at the home of Everett Glover, where they meet Ruth Paine.
March 2, 1963: The Oswalds move to 214 West Neely Street.
March 9-10, 1963: LHO takes photographs of the home of General Edwin Walker, a right-wing activist.
March 11, 1963: The Militant, a prominent left-wing publication, publishes a letter signed L.H., probably written by LHO.
March 12, 1963: Ruth Paine visits Marina at the new apartment. Also that day, LHO orders a rifle from Klein's Sporting Goods in Chicago.
March 20, 1963: The rifle and the revolver are shipped.
March 25, 1963: LHO picks up the weapons
First of all, before even looking at evidence that casts serious doubts on Oswald’s having ordered a revolver and a rifle, let’s use some common sense.
According to the Timeline, Oswald ordered a revolver on January 28, 1962. This is a typo. Parnell means 1963. Right away, we should question Parnell’s (and McAdams’) dedication to accuracy and detail about the Timeline. The typo ‘1962’ has been on this site since at least 2002, when I first copied it. As of Sept. 26, 2011, the typo has remained as ‘1962.’
Setting that aside, we assume Parnell means ‘1963.’ Now we get to the gist of the matter. According to the Warren Commission, Lee Harvey Oswald ordered a revolver on January 28, 1963. He ordered a rifle on March 12, 1963. The Warren Commission tells us that both of Oswald’s weapons were shipped on March 20, 1963 and that he picked up both weapons 5 days later, on March 25, 1963.
Let’s use some common sense and logic.
The revolver was supposedly ordered January 28. It was shipped on March 20. That’s 4 days for January, 28 days for February, and 20 days for March = 52 days. It took 52 days to fill the order.
The rifle was supposedly ordered March 12. It was shipped on March 20. It took 8 days to fill the order.
We are supposed to blindly believe that both weapons, though they were ordered 44 days apart from each other, nevertheless were shipped the same day, both arrived on the same day and both were picked up on the same day.
Seems that people mean and low enough to plant evidence against Oswald were also not very bright. For more information on how Oswald was framed, on just THIS issue, please see these essays at SCRIBD:

Interactive Timeline of Lee Harvey Oswald: an Analysis
Why It’s Important to Clear Oswald’s Name
Lee Harvey Oswald was accused of killing President John F. Kennedy. The media and Internet have been keeping that old lie alive. Evidence to the contrary is ignored, minimalized, declared unimportant. But it IS important. Clearing Oswald’s name means that these old lies will be seen for what they are, and that those who actually killed Kennedy, protected by the government and the media, will then be recognized. Since these people illegally and violently took over America, uncounted millions have suffered wars and financial disasters worldwide that can be traced to the radical changes in US policies and monetary practices.
It is our obligation to trace the handoffs of power. It is our obligation to stand tall on November, 2013, and fight the “official story” that is still being used to hide the taking of America from the people.

A GOOD MARINE WHO LEARNED THE STUNNING TRUTH
Roy Schaeffer served in the Marine Corps during the Eisenhower and Kennedy administrations (1960-1962). After graduating from Aviation Electronics School in San Diego , he was assigned the same job Lee Harvey Oswald had previously done at El Toro AFB.
He was working for the Dayton Daily News (DDN) the weekend of the Kennedy assassination. On the morning after JFK was assassinated, Schaeffer was asked to retrieve two wire photos for the Sunday Edition of the DDN. Seeing those photos would one day start him on a journey investigating the Kennedy assassination, though before that time he had no reason to question the Warren Commission's findings.
Fourteen years later, Schaeffer saw the wire photos as they were published on that Sunday and knew both photos were altered before the paper went to press. After finding more possible film alterations, studying the Warren Commission's report and recognizing two Marines' names in official reports, Schaeffer knew he had some insights, that by pure chance, no one else had.
In 1986 he wrote Jim Garrison about an extra 8mm Zapruder film made during the Clay Shaw trial. About a year later he received a copy from Fay Turner, a detective who questioned Oswald shortly after his arrest. By studying the Zapruder film in great detail, Schaeffer was able to make a composite blink-rate chart by plotting the emergency blinking lights on the front grill of the Presidential limousine frame by frame. By examining the blinking-light pattern, he concluded that Zapruder's camera ran at a faster speed than 18 frames per second, thus providing film-tampering evidence. Schaeffer testified before the Assassination Records Review Board in Dallas in 1994.
Schaeffer co-authored a chapter entitled, "The Case for Zapruder Film Tampering" in Assassination Science, Experts Speak Out about the Death of JFK with Mike Pincher, Esq. and edited by James H. Fetzer. Schaeffer has been researching the Kennedy assassination for more than 30 years and is now placing his research material at the Poage Library.

OSWALD'S INNOCENCE AND DISAPPEARING FILES
|Minox Spy Camera 1940's, 1950's,1960's
Known throughout the world as the subminiature camera to have, the Minox spy camera
was in the hands of almost all intelligence agents and spies in the 1940's, 1950's and
1960's. The camera was very good at taking close up document photography.
The camera was so small and so good for it's hay-day that it had restricted sales
to governmental and military intelligence agencies in many parts of the world such
as the United States. In the late 1960's through the 1980's if you were a private-eye
and had one, you had the very latest high tech subminiature camera on the market.
They were also very expensive.
Around 1978, an article written by Earl Golz gives us pertinent information about the Minox. Researcher A. J. Weberman had successfully petitioned to get the photos the FBI held that had come from "Oswald's Minox." Here is a portion of that article:
OSWALD PICTURES RELEASED BY FBI PHOTOGRAPHS FROM SMALL SPY CAMERA REVEALED AFTER ALMOST 15 YEARS
By EARL GOLZ
Photographs developed from Minox spy camera film found among Lee Harvey Oswald's personal possessions have been released by the FBI after being suppressed almost 15 years. About 25 images shot in foreign countries on two rolls from the miniature German-made camera were made available by the FBI under a Freedom of Information Act request by Alan Weberman, an independent assassination researcher in New York City.
More than 20 prints developed from one roll show civilian scenes apparently in Europe. Five shots from the other roll were military scenes either in the Far East or Central America. A Minox camera with a cassette film roll inside disappeared from Oswald's possessions after the FBI took custody of the property in 1963 from Dallas police, The News earlier had disclosed.
THE BUREAU LATER TRIED UNSUCCESSFULLY TO PRESSURE POLICE INTO CHANGING THEIR INVENTORY LIST TO READ MINOX LIGHT METER, NOT CAMERA, according to detective Gus Rose who said he found the camera in Oswald's seabag at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Paine in Irving. The FBI had indicated the two rolls it developed were found separately in tin containers with ribbons tied around them. House Assassinations Committee investigators recently interviewed a former FBI agent who had custody of the Oswald property when the camera with film INSIDE DISAPPEARED, The New has learned. The former agent, Warren de Brueys, monitored Oswald's activities in the summer of 1963. He came to Dallas for two months to assist the Warren Commission investigation of the assassination.
"Monitoring is a word I would be reluctant to use," de Brueys told The News. "I never personally met him (Oswald), never knowingly personally talked to him. And I say that advisedly because - who knows - I don't think it happened. He may have called on the phone and made an inquiry one time without identifying himself."
TWO MONTHS LATER, ON JAN. 27, 1964, FBI AGENT THOMAS W. LENIHAN IN WASHINGTON TOLD J. GORDON SHANKLIN, AGENT IN CHARGE OF THE DALLAS FBI OFFICE, THAT DE BRUEYS' INVENTORY OF NOV. 26, 1963, SHOWED A MINOX CAMERA AMONG OSWALD'S POSSESSION, ACCORDING TO A LENIHAN MEMO. "I advised Shanklin that our laboratory claims that they did not have a Minox camera and that this item should be a Minox light meter," Lenihan's memo stated. "I requested that DL (Dallas FBI office) resolve whether or not a Minox camera was among the effects of Oswald. "
On 1-28-64 Shanklin advised Inspector Moore (Dallas police detective H.M. Moore) that Oswald did not have a Minox camera; that this was a Minox light meter." Two days after Lenihan told Shanklin the camera was a light meter, FBI agents visited the Paine home in Irving where Oswald's personal possessions were found and located a Minox camera in a coffee can in the garage. Mrs. Ruth Paine identified the camera as her husband's. The camera, which Michael Paine considered "unworkable" because of shutter damage, was forwarded to the Washington FBI office with "other evidence," according to an FBI teleprinter message dated Jan. 31, 1964. The message said Dallas police were "aware that no Minox camera (was) obtained in search" of the Paine residence and garage on Nov. 22-23, 1963. Detective Rose, however, remains adamant he found a Minox camera with film in it in Oswald's seabag when he made the initial search at the Paine home.
==Among Rose's many statements that he had indeed found a Minox is his mention of Ruth Paine watching him as he searched through Lee Oswald's possessions in the garage:MORIARTY - This Minox camera. Was that with Ruth Paine's camera equipment?
ROSE - No, it was in the sea bag.
MORIARTY - Oh, in the sea bag.
ROSE - Ruth Paine explained to me, she stood, she stood right there while we searched. And she explained that everything in that sea bag and a couple of boxes that were there was Oswald's and she never had any objection to any search of that. The only time she objected was when we searched her bedroom where a lot of her camera equipment was. She did not object when we searched Marina Oswald's bedroom, the one she used.
Michael Paine told The News he recalled taking photos in Korea while he was in the army in the early 1950s and later on a trip to Europe, but not with a Minox camera. He couldn't remember taking a photo of a tanker anchored offshore mountainous terrain, he said.
==Of course Mr. Paine couldn't remember taking such a photo, even though he has to claim the camera as his own. That camera will later disappear, according to Paine, stolen from him along with other cameras. In the National Archives, a Minox camera appears, but it -==just like the "Paine" Minox, is damaged! Damaged in the same place, too--so that the serial number cannot be seen. What a coincidence! How remarkable! The serial number of the Minox Michael Paine claimed belonged to him happened to be quite unique, as explained below:The Minox III camera, serial number 27259, was turned over to the FBI on January
Warren Commission apologist John McAdams, who says Oswald did it, and calls anyone who comes to a different conclusion a "conspiracy buff," published this comment about the Minox and its serial number:"The serial number reported by the FBI is controversial for several reasons. This camera is purported to be in the National Archives today, but the camera has been damaged and can not be opened. The serial number can only be viewed when the camera is open. The question then is how did the FBI report a serial number, when the number can not be seen. In addition the Minox III was a newer version of the Minox II. The serial number for the Minox II from 20379 to 31500 while Model III serial numbers started with 31275 and ended with 58499, so the 27259 number can not be the number on a model III. The question then becomes where did the FBI get this 27259 serial number?"
===Perhaps the number itself was reported for Lee's Minox before it was decided a substitute Minox was needed, a Minox III. Was the number then attributed to the Minox III that "belonged" to Michael Paine? Problem: if the camera is opened, the serial number could be seen to be different.
But Paine's camera was ''broken' and could not be opened. Nevertheless, the FBI is comfortable assigning the serial number to it--and even showing the camera that belonged to Michael Paine later to Lee's wife, Marina, to see if she could identify it. Not surprisingly, she could not/would not.
The Minox on display in the National Archives is damaged so we cannot see its serial number.
The other option -- McAdams' -- is that the FBI pretended to make up a serial number for the camera. Or for another camera, now lost. Every way it's examined, the FBI doesn't come up smelling like roses in this matter (as usual, when trying to dig up the truth about the Kennedy assassination)==
I'M A WITNESS
In my book, Me & Lee, I speak of the Minox. I encountered Lee's Minox when Kerry Thornley took a Polaroid photo of us, which Lee immediately destroyed. Kerry commented that Lee "still" had the camera, which means Lee had the camera when they were both based at El Toro, California. That's also where Gerry Hemming mentioned seeing Lee, and he, too, said Lee had a Minox, though his story of how Lee got it is very strange, indeed. In 1963, Xerox machines were few and far between. Lee told me he used the Minox to copy documents. He said he developed his own film.
Witness: "Lee's Minox that made 150 photos at once." (No way!)
Lee also said something that I simply must have misremembered. I thought Lee told me that his Minox could take over 150 photos at once. I now know this is clearly impossible, unless somebody out there has heard of a radically modified Minox. Martin Shackelford, a researcher who knows his photos, corrected me when I stated this in 1999: that was impossible, he said. It's an example of memory failure on my part: I've been accused of having too good a memory, but in this case, memory failed me. However, maybe Lee had told me he had taken 150 photos at one time with the Minox, using the required rolls of film to do so. I, knowing nothing about the Minox except what it looked like, just misunderstood.
However, I saw Lee's Minox on several occasions. Both Shackelford and Dr. Howard Platzman received this information by email, in 1999, and Shackelford printed it out.
