View the Youtube video.....

A few years after the coup, Benavides told a reporter that he clearly saw the killer and Benavides referred the the killer as ....  "This other man"....  He Did NOT identify this "other man" as Lee Oswald.   

Benavides DID know that Lee Oswald was NOT the killer.....And he told the police that he could not identify Lee as the killer.... in fact h was sure that Lee was NOT the killer. ( he saw the killer face and he described the killer's hair cut which was NOT Lee Oswald's face or the fashion in which Lee had his hair cut)  Thus they did not want any affidavit or any statement from Benavides.

You're talking about "A CBS News Inquiry: The Warren Report" (1967)

Benavides does say "This other man" when he corrected himself after originally saying "Oswald".

But, that is a far cry from your claim that Benavides told the authorities that he "could not identify Lee as the killer" and that he "was sure that Lee was NOT the killer".

In reality, Benavides did not attend a lineup because he felt he would not be able to identify the killer.  To the best of my knowledge, Benavides never said anything to them about not being able to identify a Lee Oswald.

As I recall.....   Benavides was telling the reporter what he had seen....And he said that Tippit had got out of the car and was near the front wheel when this other man shot him.

At that time it was commonly accepted that Lee Harrrrrvey Ossssswald was the killer.......So why did Benavides refer to the killer as..."  this other man"

Tom,

We arrive at the same destination--Benavides could NOT identify the shooter. This means he could NOT say that it was LHO as the WC claimed.

Benavides could NOT identify the shooter.

This is TRUE!....."Benavides could NOT identify the shooter.", because he didn't know or recognize the shooter, but he had seen Lee Oswald's photo on TV and he knew that if that was the man they wanted him to identify, then he couldn't do it.

Benavides realized very early that this was an event that he did not want to get involved in.   He said that he left the scene shortly after Callaway arrived .....but then decided that he could help the police in finding the spent shells and returned to the scene.

Thank You....That's right....  He corrected his initial error of referring to the other man as "Oswald" ......

To me, it looks like Benavides was trying to be "politically correct" by not actually saying the name Oswald.

Benavides couldn't identify the killer as Oswald but that is not to say that Benavides ever stated that the killer was not Oswald.  He simply had no opinion one way or the other.

Really?  In 1967, you believe it was commonly accepted that Lee Oswald was the killer?
