Faces in the Crowd: Among the several hundred witnesses
to the assassination were the following: the "umbrella man" who
supposedly signalled assassination teams to fire by closing his black umbrella;
the "Babushka Lady," who allegedly was introduced to "Lee
Oswald of the CIA" by Jack Ruby and who also filmed the assassination,
only to have the FBI confiscate the film and never return it; Joseph Milteer,
the National States Rights Party leader who had disclosed the Miami plot
against JFK and who had links through the NSRP to James Earl Ray's brother
Jerry; three tramps who were arrested soon after the assassination, two
of them allegedly resembling E. Howard Hunt and Frank Sturgis, the third
possibly being Oswald II; Lee Harvey Oswald and George DeMohrenschildt who,
so DeMohrenschildt told a hospital roommate just before his death, were
together watching the parade when the shots were fired--Oswald ran and that
was the last time DeMohrenschildt supposedly saw him.
Some Nagging Doubts: Nixon, having attended a convention
of Pepsi-Cola executives in Dallas, leaves for New York an hour before the
assassination and was one of the few people who later forgot where he was
at the time; J. Edgar Hoover also alleged to have been secretly in Dallas
on the same day. Texas oilman H.L. Hunt taken into protective custody by
federal agents after the assassination and kept in another city for several
days to avoid threats by those who might think he was involved. DeMohrenschildt,
in Haiti, expresses belief Oswald was a patsy and that the FBI killed Kennedy
(though later DeMohrenschildt claimed to have been the link between H.L
Hunt and Oswald in a right-wing plot to kill JFK). Ferrie allegedly flies
to Dallas on evening after assassination but his actual whereabouts remain
unclear. Ruby, allegedly in hypnotic trance, shoots Oswald after an unexplained
horn honk signal in the Dallas Police building basement. Cuban Bay of Pigs
veteran named Ruedelo arrives in Madrid, Spain, five days after Kennedy

Society drug running scheme. Oswald allegedly attempts to assassinate General
Walker in Dallas. He and Marina separate.
September--Oswald visits Mexico City travelling with
Albert Osborne, who paid for the "Hands off Cuba" leaflets; visits
Soviet Embassy to request protection from the FBI. They turn him away, and
he then visits the Cuban embassy to try and get a visa to travel to Cuba.
They reject him as well. He returns to Dallas. During the time of that trip:
"Harvey Oswald" appeared at the selective service office in Austin
Tx, to discuss his discharge; Cuban refugee Leader Sylvia Odio is visited
by a pair of Hispanics and "Leon/Leonardo Osward" to discuss anti-Castro
activities and revenge against Kennedy; someone looking like Oswald appeared

talk to the manager of station KPOY; he attends General Walker's John Birch
Society meeting lecture and two nights later attends an ACLU meeting where
he criticises Walker's racism. Oswald visits Irving TX and visits a furniture
store; a sporting good store where he has three holes drills (although when
it is found, his rifle has only two holes, drilled before he bought it);
cashes a $189 check in order to buy some strange groceries; has his hair
cut and exchanges some Leftist comments with a teenager; visits the Lord-Lincoln
auto agency and test drives a car at 70 mph talking about coming into money
soon and returning to Russia. Oswald writes a letter to the Dallas FBI that

or anyone else". He is seen in the Carousel Club plotting with Ruby,
Officer Tippet, and/or Bernard Weissman. "Lee Oswald of the CIA"
is introduced to "the Babushka Lady" (Later filmed at Dealy Plaza)
by Jack Ruby. He ordered the distribution of the anti-Kennedy "wanted
for Treason" leaflets.
November 18--JFK in Miami. There is an assassination
attempt, but it is blown by right wing National States Rights Party leader
Joseph Milteer). There was also allegedly an attempted assassination of
JFK in Chicago.
November 20--Oswald makes a scene in a restaurant where
he was "glowered" at by Officer JD Tippet.
November 21--JFK flies from Washington to San Antonio,
then to Houston, then to Fort Worth.
November 22--JFK flies from Fort Worth to Dallas. There
was the Umbrella Man in the crowd. The Epileptic. John F. Kennedy is assassinated
in Dallas, TX and Governor John Connally is wounded. There is either a lone
gunman in the Texas School Book Depository building; a shooter in the TSBD,
and one on the "Grassy Knoll"; or Three gunmen, including one
firing from atop the railroad bridge. Three tramps were arrested soon after
the assassination; two of whom resemble E. Howard Hunt and Frank Sturgis.
At the moment of the assassination Oswald was photographed standing in the
doorway of the TSBD. George DeMohrenschildt claimed that he and Oswald were
watching the parade when the shots were fired, at which point Oswald ran.
He is seen fleeing the TSBD by the rear door immediately after the assassination.
He is seen eating in the lunch room of the TSBD 90 seconds after the assassination.
He is seen (by Deputy Roger Craig) leaving the TSBD by the front door 15
mins after the assassination, and being picked up by a black man driving
his landlady's car. According to witnesses, Oswald murders Officer JD Tippet,
then runs to the Texas Theater where he enters without paying and is arrested
by a large number of policemen. Nixon was in Dallas on 22 November 1963,
for a convention of Pepsi Cola executives, although he allegedly left by
plane an hour before the assassination. J. Edgar Hoover may have been in
Dallas as well, as might have been oil executive George Bush. Texas oilman
H.L. Hunt was taken into protective custody by federal agents after the
assassination and kept in another city for a few days (DeMohrenschidt would
later claim to have been the link between Oswald and H.L. Hunt in an FBI/Right
Wing plot to kill Kennedy). Ferrie may have flown to Dallas on the night
of the 22d. Cuban Bay of Pigs vet Ruedolo arrives in Madrid, Spain five
days after the assassination, and is jailed for having an invalid visa.
Jack Zangetti, an Oklahoma City motel manager is murdered after telling
friends the day after the assassination that Ruby would kill Oswald and
that a member of the Sinatra Family would be kidnapped soon afterward to
divert attention away from the assassination (Frank Sinatra Jr was kidnapped
and released unharmed). Oswald is murdered by Jack Ruby while in police
custody, on television. Lyndon Johnson is inaugurated on the plane back
to Washington. By the end of the day, the various agencies
involved will have so muddied the evidence that there is no way the truth
will EVER be conclusively known.
