U.S. blocks Oswald’s friend from attending a JFK conference

From Milicent Cranor at WhoWhatWhy the story of a Russian man who was close to accused assassin Lee Harvey Oswald and why you may not be able to hear his story in person.

“Ernst Titovets, author of the 2010 book ‘Oswald: Russian Episode,’ had been invited to be the keynote speaker at the yearly Dallas conference held by the Coalition on Political Assassinations (COPA), a loose-knit organization of researchers who study political assassinations,” Cranor writes on Russ Baker’s investigative blog.

“But Titovets got a cold reception from the American Consulate in Minsk (capital of White Russia, a part of the USSR now called Belarus) when he applied for a visa to travel to America—and has been waiting to hear from them for over a month.”

Cranor puts Titovet’s story in perspective, asks some hard questions, and makes the case that he should be allowed to come to United States.

Here’s how you can help.

Dr. Titovets has asked that polite letters of support be sent to:

    This is a link to a recording of Dr. Titovet and LHO. Listening to Lee read Shakespeare and “play” characters with the doctor, is as fascinating as their relationship itself. Fits with the LHO who read 30 odd books during 1963 including histories, bios and thrillers.Doesn’t strike me as the “lone nut” type.
