Lee Harvey Oswald’s Little Green Book Shows He Was Actually A Bad Shot

J.F Kennedy was assassinated on 22nd November 1963, while traveling through Dallas in an open-top convertible. The 35th US president was shot by Lee Harvey Oswald as his convoy was passing through Texas. A few hours after JFK was shot and killed, a Secret Service officer called Mike Howard was sent to Oswald’s home.

Mike Howard found a little green book, and on its 17th page J.F Kennedy’s killer had listed four men who he intended to kill — James Hosty, an FBI agent, Edwin Walker, a right-wing general and Vice President Richard Nixon. The then governor of Texas Mr. John Connally’s name was on the top of the Oswald’s list.

Howard submitted the book over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and then to the Warren Commission. A few months later, he learnt that the page had been ripped out of the little green book. To this day, no one knows how that happened. Oswald’s wife, Marina, testified to the Warren Commission that Connally was the main target and not J.F Kennedy.

Moreover, Dallas emigres testified to Lee Harvey Oswald’s obsession with governor John Connally, who was his main target. Furthermore, there was sufficient testimony that Oswald had no grudge against the president. In fact, he admired the president’s important initiatives such as his efforts at detente with the Russians.

Month after JFK assassination, The Warren Commission concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald singlehandedly assassinated JFK. Three other U.S. regimes investigations, in the year 1968, 1975, and 1978 confirmed the commission’s conclusion that Oswald acted alone.

But in 1978, the House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) decided that Oswald may not have acted alone. Five years ago, their finding was rejected by a group of retired secret service officers, who analyzed all the available evidences using the latest technology. They concluded that Oswald acted alone.

During that time, Dorothy Mae Kilgallen, a highly respected gossip columnist, fought against the “acted alone” theory. But then in 1965, she died under mysterious circumstances. The autopsy showed she was in good health. New evidence suggested that she was murdered by unknown people.

According to crime analysts, none of these theories add up when all the events that unfolded 6 months before that fateful day are carefully analyzed. Americans may never know the whole truth as Oswald never got a chance to stand trial. Less than 24 hours after JFK assassination, he was shot dead in Dallas while he was being transferred by the police from a cell to the nearby county jail.
