Hosty trying to seduce Marina is right up there with the best JFK fantasies. Nice one. She didn't speak English and he didn't speak Russian but through Ruth Paine acting as translator he tries to seduce a women he's never met before. Classic.

I read a transcript of a Hosty interview taken years later where Hosty admitted he had floated the idea past Marina that she could pass him information about her husband. He said approaching the spouse of people of interest was common practice. No wonder Oswald was outraged. Most men would be I'd think.

She didn't speak English and he didn't speak ( insert any language)  but  he tries to seduce a women he's never met before. Classic.

Sounds like sailor in a foreign port......  Nothing unusual about it....  happens every day.

You guys have some imagination if you think him doing his job is the same as trying to seduce her.

The two wouldn't necessarily be mutually exclusive.

Marina told Lee that she thought FBI agent Hosty was a nice man.....   In fact they actually quarreled about Hosty.  When Marina told him that FBI Hosty had visited, Lee told her to avoid Hosty and refrain from providing him any information. Marina argued that Hosty was a nice man and he simply wanted to know if any Russians threatened her or her family in the USSR.  Lee told her that the FBI was not merely protecting her..... 

Then just  a couple of weeks later Marina told Lee's brother Robert that she didn't want to talk to Hosty and Robert noticed a definite animosity toward Hosty.   

Something certainly caused Marina to make a complete reversal of her feeling toward Hosty.

I would think Hosty was nice to Marina the first time he went to see her but then exerted his power and threatened her if she didn't report on her husband LHO.  That would certainly be enough to anger Oswald to that extent.  It would also explain her avoiding speaking to Hosty after her husband had been killed.

Why do you ask how did Marina get Hosty's number plate?  It was in Oswald's book.  Oswald was involved in low level intelligence so he would be conscious if anyone was watching the house and would have noted the number plate.  Maybe he did that to check with Warren de Brueys who Hosty was?  Oswald was likely an FBI informant.  Maybe that was kept from Hosty at first?

Abuse of power by Hosty could have led to relations with Marina but I think threats about deportation more likely.  They certainly worked after the assassination.

I read somewhere that the photograph of a car on Gen Edwin Walker's car with the number plate cut out and removed was Hosty's car.  A photo exists without the number plate removed but I think it can't be read.  May be it can be determined with today's technology?

The fact that Hosty's number was in Oswald's book wouldn't have necessarily been a reason to cover up Hosty's car at Walker's home.  That is unless of course he was up to a covert plan to frame Oswald as the shooter who fired at Walker.  The range of that shot made it impossible for anyone who knew one end of a rifle from the other to miss.  Walker was very right wing, Oswald was painted as a commie.

Was Hosty a member of any far right organisation?

Lee became very angry when Hosty was introduced before the interrogation began.   I don't know what Lee said to hosty but I caused Fritz to tell Lee to calm down, and ask Lee why he said that to FBI agent Hosty.  Lee told Fritz that Hosty had accosted his wife....

It is a known fact that Hoover's FBI was reading the mail addressed to the Russian Embassy.   It is a fact that Lee Oswald sent a letter to the Russian Embassy in which he said that FBI agent Hosty was bothering his wife.
