Did LHO meet Castro?
« on: November 21, 2022, 03:49:18 PM »

From pages 249-250 of “History Will Prove Us Right” by Howard Willens:

During May, Slawson followed up on several aspects of Oswald’s trip to Mexico. At his request, Rankin asked the State Department to obtain affidavits or sworn testimony from Mr. and Mrs. John B. McFarland of Liverpool, England, before an official of the US Consular Service. In an earlier interview, the McFarlands said they had traveled to Mexico in September 1963 and that a man later identified as Oswald got on their bus at Houston in the early morning of September 26. Oswald told them that he was the secretary of the Fair Play for Cuba Committee in New Orleans and that he was traveling to Mexico City so that he could go from there to Cuba to meet Castro. In his letter Rankin suggested several questions that might be asked of the McFarlands, including the nature of Oswald’s clothing, the number of suitcases he was carrying, and names or places in Mexico that Oswald might have mentioned.73


Just like LHO’s “I’m just a patsy” and his “I didn’t shoot anybody” statements, he just had to be telling the truth to the McFarlands ….  ;)

But then, of course, we have the letter he wrote to the Soviet Embassy in Washington DC that says he was denied the opportunity to go to Cuba by the bureaucrats in MC. And surely, LHO wouldn’t lie about that. Or, would he?  ???

Dang, these mysteries just keep getting more and more difficult to solve….  ::)

No !


But, umm, do you have any evidence that clearly excludes the possibility that LHO met with Castro?   :-\   ;)

Nobody can place LHO meeting Castro and the same goes for Oswald having been in Mexico City . No one has a picture of LHO in Mexico City and nobody can place LHO on the 6th floor on the 22nd of November. We can place him in the breakroom and the Texas theater . LHO said he was a Patsy and we know this because LHO said he was . Why would Ruby want to be taken to Washington DC ?

No one can be "placed" at the crime scene unless a witness confirms their presence at the moment of the crime?  That will come as good news to many criminals.  Typically, it is sufficient for them leave evidence like a weapon and/or prints at the crime scene and have no alibi and maybe even flee the scene.  Sound familiar?

Too bad you don’t have any actual evidence that any particular person “left a weapon”.
