Whose Target was General Edwin Walker?
« on: August 26, 2018, 07:53:24 PM »
The Warren Commission sharks.. desperate to suggest Oswald was a violent and dangerous person declared that Lee Harvey Oswald was the perpetrator in the shooting of Gen Walker based on testimony from Marina and George D'M...photos and a map conveniently found w/ other incriminating evidence also a 'farewell note' of some sort was found.
Marina and George did not see Oswald shoot Walker. [Walker was shot though not badly injured][/b]

Oswald confessed to his wife even before the Walker attempt was known to the public.  How and why would he do that if he was not the shooter?  There was no apparent need to link Oswald to the Walker attempt.   Standing alone there was plenty of evidence to link Oswald to the JFK assassination.  And he was already dead before this came to light.  Any conspiracy plot to frame him for the JFK assassination would not need to link him to other crimes.  Lots of risks for no real gain in the JFK conspiracy context.

Oswald confessed to his wife..
And she reported it when? Unless you were there and heard this confession yourself.
She lied constantly...it's evident.

"Allegedly"

No, not allegedly.  It's part of her testimony.  Oswald also had recon photos of Walker's home and gave Marina instructions on what to do if he was arrested or killed.  It's a slam dunk.  But if you believe that this was all made up, then why?  By the time Oswald became associated with the Walker attempt, he was already dead, there would be no trial, and the authorities were satisfied with his guilt as the JFK assassin.  Why would the conspirators need to link him to yet another crime?  Risky and unnecessary at that point.   And how do they get Marina to make up this story?  If she was under some type of duress, then that no longer applies as she now freely expresses doubts as to Oswald's guilt.  Why doesn't she clear this up as well?

Nice summation, I'll only add that the recon photos were determined to be taken shortly before Walker was shot and Oswald had a map marked with Walkers address.

Statements above were conceded [for the sake of argument] in the opening post.
Perhaps it was not thoroughly read and the police report was not scrutinized if read at all.
Yeah..perhaps [allegedly] a map was found.... Why if this deed [as proposed] had been attempted...would it be it kept? The same with the alleged photographs.
Trying to make sense out of the senseless again?
The shallowness of of some peoples skepticism belies their purpose.
Once again...every attempt possible was made to establish Oswald as a homicidal maniac.
A steel jacket bullet was pulled out of Walker's wall and there could be no connection made with CE2766 [or whatever that rifle was called] Go back up and read that police report.....
Two cars were seen driving away right after the shots. One driver was seen stashing something into the floorboard before he drove off.

 If one ever reads up on General Walker, apparently, he went to New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell, NM.

His role in the Ole Miss demonstrations in the early '60s I disagree with but I guess, he enforced the law for Ike on integration in Little Rock in the 1950s. Interesting figure.

All in his wikipedia bio... except the extent of those riots in MS,  it appears to have been major unrest. He was on the cover of TIME (or LIFE or Newsweek, I forget which).

Walker was staunchly pro-Segregation and Oswald was staunchly pro-Civil Rights.

So there’s definitely a motive and perhaps Oswald voiced negative opinions about Walker to Marina and George DM. But there’s not enough evidence to say Beyond a Reasonable Doubt that Oswald shot Walker. Too many holes in the evidence...

What you are basically arguing is that the evidence against Oswald is so overwhelming that he must be innocent.  Criminals do dumb things.  Oswald did apparently destroy some documents relating to the Walker attempt.  Marina explains in her testimony why some were kept.   In terms of the cars, remember the DC sniper case?  The police were asking people to look for a white van.  This in the age of security cameras.  No white van was involved.  Just a mix up by witnesses.  Cars may have been seen driving away and witnesses erroneously connected them to the Walker attempt.  Again, there is no apparent need to "establish Oswald as a homicidal maniac" to link him to the JFK assassination in a conspiracy narrative.  Assassins, mass shooter often have no prior violent history.   The risks of linking Oswald to the Walker shooting far surpassed any gains from a conspiracy perspective.   After his death, with the authorities satisfied of his guilt in the JFK assassination there would have been no need to falsely link him to Walker.
