But why am I even mentioning this? John Armstrong's phenomenal "Harvey and Lee" does NOT deal with the actual assassination of Presiudent Kennedy! In its pages you will find no treatment of the ballistic or medical evidence nor any forays into the identification of exactly who fired the shots.
Rather, what you WILL find in this massive, profoundly-researched book is the result of years of private research performed by a great American named John Armstrong, a successful businessman who attended a college class in Texas on the assassination and who subsequently became intrigued by the "two Oswalds" theory that Professor Richard Popkin and other early researchers first posited during the 1960s.
Amazingly, at his own expense Armstrong literally traveled all over not only the U.S. but also the globe to personally interview people who'd had direct contact with the figure[s] known as "Lee Harvey Oswald" and -- perhaps even more importantly -- to obtain the ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS related to the case, many of which had never before seen the light of day or been published in any other book. (Early on the author discusses his belief that researchers should not rely on the work of others but should instead go to the original documents and evidence. Armstrong certainly practiced what he preaches, and the reader is all the more the winner for it.)
Armstrong's most essential finding -- backed-up by huge amounts of evidence, images of a small portion of which are contained on a CD which accompanies the book -- is that there were two "Lee Harvey Oswalds," a U.S.-born one who he refers to as "Lee" and a (likely foreign-born) one referred to as "Harvey.Read more ›
I have to commend Armstrong on his in depth research in this book. Armstrong really has gone through the opened FBI files of thousands and thousand of pages when they were opened to the public in '78 regarding the keneddy assasination. Armstrong is definetly on to something here of two oswalds and two margurites when he cites evidence after evidence (a lot of real estate records, and eye witness of accounts of two different oswalds and margurites) of double Oswalds. He speculates this was a CIA project to get one Oswald (a hungarian american who knew how to speak Hungarian therefore he picked up learning Russian very quickly) into the USSR as a defector using the real Oswald's name and identity. If you were the USSR and you were some american born Hungarian named Korovich would'nt you think he was a CIA plant if he was trying to defect to your country. Therefore the need to have two Oswalds to complete this project. This Hungarian american Oswald was working for the CIA and his mission was to collect data once he got into the USSR. Armstong cites a lot of factual evidence to back this up. Ok, this might sound ridiculous to some people who live in todays world of Google satilites and youtube videos of people all over the world.Read more ›
