A reader writes:
“In light of your recent post on Marina, I wonder what you personally make of her as a key figure and witness against her husband?”
The reader goes on:
“I’ve just re-read Sylvia Meagher, who demonstrated the inconsistencies in her testimony before the Warren Commission. I have seen her on TV ( and with her grown up girls) and read many articles in subsequent years in which Marina says Lee did not do the crime. And yet, some of the most damning circumstantial evidence came from Marina in 1963-4 — from the rifle to LHO’s alleged involvement in shooting at General Walker to the infamous back yard photos.”
“Should we simply ignore or dismiss anything she has to say today? Should we ignore or dismiss what she had to say at the time? Is she credible, believable person when she speaks out from time to time, today?”
I spoke with Marina Oswald Porter on the phone some years ago and found her a cogent and thoughtful person. Her belief that her husband didn’t kill JFK deserves more respect and attention than it gets.
But that’s all I’m going to say. How would you answer this reader’s questions?
