Steve Gillon follows Lee Harvey Oswald for the 48 hours after the Kennedy assassination in search of answers to the question that has been troubling America for the past five decades: Why did he shoot JFK? The Warren Commission speculated that Oswald was simply a deranged sociopath. But recently declassified materials raise new troubling questions. Where was Oswald going when he fled the School Book Depository Building on Friday afternoon? Is it possible that Cuban intelligence officials may have encouraged Oswald to commit the crime and promised to help him escape? This audio book goes back to the Dallas Municipal Building and recreates the interrogation sessions. What emerges from this expose is refreshingly new, and more complicated, portrait of the man who assassinated President John F. Kennedy.

Recall that among the endless number of errors, lies and variances spewed forth by the Warren Commission Report, even the most mundane were dishonest, such as Lee Oswald never requesting legal representation - - just view one of the clips below, and you will witness Lee pleading before the cameras for legal representation he was never granted!
He was working at D.H. Byrd's Texas School Book Depository, so who was this D.H. Byrd?
His family was financially connected to the Bush-Walker family for at least several generations, he was a buddy and donor to Lyndon Johnson, a major investor in the conglomerate, LTV, which would profit mightily from the Vietnam War, and belonged to the Dallas Petroleum Club [other members: Texas oilmen, plus David Atlee Phillips {CIA, head of their Western Hemisphere Division}, George H. W. Bush, George de Mohrenschildt, et cetera].
de Mohrenschildt met and hung with Lee Oswald, curious given that Mohrenschildt was an upper crusty guy, played tennis at the estate of Jackie Kennedy's parents, and had an aunt who was the daughter of the first chairmen of the Federal Reserve, whose uncle was a CEO of the major Euro oil company, Nobel Enterprises, and . . oh, yes, he was a CIA asset?
Amazing, all these connected people and Lee Oswald?
And supposedly Ruth Paine mentions this job at the TSBD to Lee Oswald, when his buddy de Mohrenshildt, belongs to the same club as its owner?
And who goes to visit Ruth Paine during his visit to Dallas several weeks prior to the JFK assassination?
Allen Dulles, the fired CIA director, of course.
Consider this audiobook to be an example of Pure Propaganda 101. [And yes, there certainly were deranged sociopaths involved: Allen Dulles, John McCloy, Conein, Douglas Dillon, and probably a few more.]

Before viewing this , please view the last clip of Oswald being questioned by reporters, where Oswald pleads for legal representation multiple times:
Main site:
Please note that Oswald wasn't allowed an attorney to speak, and absolutely no notes or tapes were made of the interrogation of Lee Oswald prior to his murder by Jacob Rubenstein, a k a Jack Ruby - - therefore completely containing Oswald from the public! Note his shock at hearing that he's been accused of murdering the president, and that when he referred to himself the first time as being a patsy [set up for the murder] he was referring to Tippitt.
