Oswald appeared to be ‘guided by others’

In his response to Thomas Powers review of THE GHOST, Bill Kelly makes a point that Powers is loathe to admit. People who observed Oswald after his defection to the Soviet Union suspected that he had ties to be intelligence world.

“Because Newman and Morley conclude – from the CIA’s own records – that Oswald was an intelligence operative of some kind, Morley asks the reasonable question: was Oswald ‘run’ by Angleton? At present the answer is ‘we don’t know’. But I say if not Angleton, who did ‘run’ Oswald, as someone clearly did,”

“Even John McVicker, the State Department official in Moscow who encouraged Priscilla Johnson to interview the newly arrived ‘defector’ Oswald, and who is not a silly conspiracy theorist, said he believe Oswald appeared to be ‘guided by others’ who ‘encouraged him in his actions’.

    What are some of the signs that LHO was, in fact, a patsy? The Phase I and Phase 2 propaganda initiatives that shifted blaming first Castro and the Russians, then the “lone-nut” scenario, which conveniently allowed government officials to down play conspiracy, specifically, the international communist conspiracy. The question that needs to be answered is: Why Oswald? We know there were other cities where organized plots against JFK were attempted, with pre-arranged patsies in each city with characteristics similar to LHO, to eventually blame when JFK was killed. Again, why Oswald? Was it because the plot was successful in Dallas, TX, and Oswald was “perfectly suited” to pin the crime on?
