So much to be thankful for...
May blessings abound all year 'round.
Lee Harvey Oswald was portrayed by mainstream establishment media as the superficial, immature, not very bright, Commie-sympathizing, axe-to-grind, disaffected, America-hating, bitter lone assassin of JFK, as Moscow's first UPI woman correspondent Aline Mosby reported after interviewing Oswald in November 1959. But there are as many questions with this story as there are surrounding those in Dallas on November 22, 1963.
Most Americans do not believe the officially-sanctioned, Warren Commissioned lone gunman theory, but, as they did 50 years ago, mainstream media still tout this version of events almost exclusively. Or dismiss the whole thing as crazy conspiracy theories.
In this hour, Oswald discusses his background, work as secretary for a pro-Cuba group in radio interviews. He asks for legal representation after being picked up and claims to reporters, "I did not kill the president. I'm just a patsy." Juxtaposed with new songs by Scott Garbe and the Cowboy Junkies from their Kennedy Suite which they debut live in Toronto Nov 22 & 23.
