Default OT Document Friday: Lee Harvey Oslwald's Letter to the Kremlin

Was about to post this in the War and Politics forum but saw the OT stickie.

So, for my job (just about every week) I do a blog post called "Document Friday" where I post a primary source National Security document and do a brief (and witty) analysis of it. I figured I'd post it over here for my friends at the Mane to read, comment and argue on. So far, I've done some cool posts on the State Dept's take on the genocide in Yugoslavia, a pre-911 assessment on Afghanistan, and Henry Kissenger and the 78 World Cup, etc, etc.

Today's is a letter that Lee Harvey Oswald wrote to the Soviet Union less than a year before he killed Kennedy. It's not in the Warren Commission Report. Read the post to see why.

http://nsarchive.wordpress.com/2010/...swalds-letter/

Here is a snippet, but its better formatted (with the actual doc and links) at the other site.

Quote:
“I want citizenship [in the Soviet Union] because, I am a communist and a worker, I have lived in a decadent capitalist society where the workers are slaves,” wrote Lee Harvey Oswald from his Moscow hotel to the “Suprem” Soviet on October 16, 1959. After this citizenship request was rejected, Oswald sat in his bathtub and slit a vein in his left arm. He was then granted temporary residence and assigned to work at a radio factory in Minsk. In April 1961, he married the nineteen-year-old student Marina Prusakova. Fourteen months later, Oswald, Marina, and their newborn son left the Soviet Union for Dallas.
What do you think?

I think you should stop doing things that might lure Gaffney over here.

I see...

Well this letter may show just how dumb LHO was. He spells almost as bad as some of the posters on the Mane. ("Suprem")

Seriously though, after reading the entire article I wonder what's in those five large files the KGB have on Oswald. To me, the letter doesn't say much. It's already been known he was a communist simpithizer and attempted to gain citizenship.

True.

According to the Izvestia newspaper article (a russian paper). The files were mostly surveillance, like what would be done to any westerner living in the ussr. "Today our surveillance subject took a crap, walked to x store, and spoke with this, that, and the other person." There is a lot of paper because they were pretty meticulous in their methods.

Is this going to end up with a good explanation as to why Hillis didn't get more carries?

Oswald was a patsy.

The kill shot came from the grassy knoll.

... The best film I've seen on it was the 3 part front line documentary.

One thing certain.

There were 2 official investigations.

1 was the Warren commission.

The other was I think a congressional on and it ruled there were at least 2 gumnen.

Let's not forget that Kennedy was a pacifist and kept us out of WW3, and wanted to leave vietnam. but also signed an order limiting the fed's power..

BTW, LBJ could hardly hold his glee.

I'm not really taking any side on this. Just sayin... The letter was released by Boris Yeltsin in 1996 (circa).... So a little late for debunking conspiracies, maybe.

Also, its LHO's handwriting (I know that can be faked). Also the batch of documents it was released with seems to be genuinely russian. The Frontline show I mentioned has a bunch of interviews with former KGB agents which pass the smell test to me.

A bizarre mystery. Hard to say the case is closed.

I will say, people forget that the Cuban Missile Crisis was only one year earlier. And that the original charge brought against Lee Harvey Oslwald had the words "Internationalist Communist conspiracy" in it.
