How involved was the CIA with Lee Harvey Oswald? Why was Oswald's file tampered with before the assassination of John Kennedy? And why were significant documents from it removed afterward? Finally, we have answers to these questions, answers not from theories, but from the primary sources themselves. John Newman has interviewed dozens of high-placed officials who have never before spoken candidly on these sensitive issues. He has thoroughly examined the vast body of new material forced into release by the JFK Records Act of 1992. Oswald and the CIA is a devastating report based on indisputable evidence. Written by a historian who spent more than twenty years with the U.S. intelligence community, it is an insider's account of the secret record. Bit by bit, document by document, the reader watches Oswald's file build as it was observed through the eyes of the intelligence officers who actually handled those files. The Oswald paper trail inside the CIA is a gripping journey through the darkest corners of the Agency's Clandestine Services.

I just read Marita Lorenz's memoir in which she recounts riding in a car full of guns to Dallas with Frank Sturgis, Lee Harvey Oswald, Orlando Bosch, another Cuban and a guy named Kennedy to "do a job" just before the JFK incident. She was dismissed by someone she thought to be CIA and put on a bus or plane to return to Miami. Nevertheless, a fascinating collection of thugs.

there are a lot of explanations available as to what actually happened on November 22, 1963, in Dallas, Texas. some of those explanations are lies, propaganda, as in "the govt. doesn't want us to know.," or, "you can't handle the truth." this book presents an in depth explanation of why the presumed assassin, Oswald, was not who the govt. claimed him to be.
