Oswald being charged with the murder of JFK as part of a communist conspiracy

Oswald being charged with the murder of JFK as part of a communist conspiracy.

 

 

While putting together my up and coming paper Anatomy Of Lee Harvey Oswald’s Interrogations I came across documents that could not be used inside that paper. But the quality of these documents meant that it would not be wise to ignore them.

Bill Alexander is about to charge Lee Oswald with murder of The President with malice and forethought and as part of a communist conspiracy. This latter part sets off alarm bells not just in Washington, and the higher echelon of the Texas legislature, but also the F.B.I. who make mention of this in a memo from Nov. 22nd  by Kyle G. Clark.

Ronald Duggar, editor of the Texas Observer, has done an interview with Bill Alexander in Sept. 1973 and notes that  Alexander said that he put out the story that Oswald was a communist to offset any talk of Oswald being a right-winger.

In an interview from Nov 3rd 1975 Alexander gets more specific, how he got about spreading the message and how it got back to him.

Earl Golz documents Michael Eddowes Nov 22 book and brings up Alexander’s communist conspiracy part.

 

In William Manchester’s notes of the interviews for his book “Death Of A President” Barefoot Sanders gives his version of what Bill Alexander is about to pull off.

Justice of the Peace David Johnston, seen inside room 317 gets his piece of the ‘conspiracy’ pie as well. As shown below the photos, in Earl Golz’s handwritten notes from Nov. 1975 of his interview with Johnston. In that interview Johnston even includes James K. Allen as one of the originators of the commie conspiracy yak yak (his words) besides Bill Alexander. James Allen is a rather secretive figure. He was a great friend of Will Fritz and in close vicinity to Room 317.

Johnston was very close to what was going on that day. He also was very close when Henry Wade gave his press conference after Oswald’s.

Then there is Waggoner Carr, and he puts a slight different spin on the story, but he had no idea what Barefoot Sanders was doing at the same time.

Then finally off course the Dallas D.A. Henry Wade, who while being interviewed by Melissa Johnson in Jan 1993. Confirms he was called by Cliff Carter
