Skip to comments.Lee Harvey Oswald Was No “Patsy”

Of all the people I interviewed in New Orleans regarding the Kennedy assassination, Carlos Bringuier was the one I trusted most. I could see in his eyes he was always telling me the complete truth. (Oriana Fallaci, L, Europeo, 1969.)
"The skinny guy walked into my store and started looking around," recalls Carlos Bringuier about the afternoon of August 5, 1963. "But I could sense he wasn't a shopper. Sure enough, after a few minutes of browsing he came up and extended his hand. "Good afternoon," he said. "I'm Lee Harvey Oswald."
In 1963 the CIA regarded the Directorio Revolucionario Estudiantil (DRE) the most militant and deeply motivated of all the Cuban exile organizations seeking to oust Castro." Carlos Bringuier was their representative in New Orleans. It was DRE agents who infiltrated Cuba and brought out the first reports of Soviet missile installations--to the scoffs of the White House's Best and Brightest. It took two months for anyone to finally take them seriously. A U-2 flight then confirmed every last detail of what the DRE boys had been risking their lives for months to report.
Oswald approached me because my name was so often linked to anti-Castro activities in the local (New Orleans) news, recalls Bringuier. He even jammed his hand in his pocket and pulled out a roll of bills, offering to contribute to the anti-Castro cause. I was suspicious and declined, but he kept blasting Castro and Communism in very colorful terms the whole time he was in the store. He returned the next day, snarled out a few more anti-Castroisms and dropped off his training manual for the anti-Castro fight, Guidebook for Marines.
Two days later Bringuier was astounded to spot Oswald a few blocks away from his store distributing Fair Pay for Cuba pamphlets. Carlos approached, accepted a pamphlet, ripped it to pieces and a scuffle ensued. The cops arrived, the scuffle made the news, and a few days later Bringuier and Oswald debated on New Orleans radio and TV.
Dozens of books, movies, articles and TV specials depict these events. What they DONT depict is how, between their scuffle and debate, Bringuier and a friend Carlos Quiroga turned the tables on Oswald. Posing as a Castro-sympathizer eager to join Oswalds Fair Play for Cuba Committee, Quiroga (who had not been in the store or involved in the scuffle) visited Oswald at his home and they commiserated for hours. You read everyplace that Oswald was dumb, a flake, a patsy, a set-up, says Bringuier. Nonsense. He was a smooth operator and spoke fluent Russian.
Quiroga noticed that Oswalds living room was filled with Fair Pay For Cuba Committee literature. From one stack Oswald pulled an application to join the Committee and offered it to Quiroga. Yet during the Warren Commission circus The Fair Play for Cuba Committee repeatedly denied that Oswald had any links with them.
Among the things that caught Quiroga's eye during his visit was Oswald speaking Russian with his wife and daughter. "Its good practice," explained Oswald. "I'm studying foreign languages at Tulane University." He was lying. Also keep in mind the date: this was 3 months before the assassination. Oswalds stint in Russia was virtually unknown at the time.
On the very night of Nov. 22rd 1963 Carlos Bringuier went public on American radio and TV: We dont know yet if Lee Harvey Oswald is President Kennedys assassin. But if he is, then Fidel Castros hand is involved in this assassination."
Fidel Castro immediately called a press conference to denounce Carlos Bringuier by name and kick off the media disinformation campaign that finally peaked as high comedy with Oliver Stones JFK.
For 15 years of my life at the top of the Soviet bloc intelligence community, I was involved in a world-wide disinformation effort aimed at diverting attention away from the KGBs involvement with Lee Harvey Oswald. The Kennedy assassination conspiracy was bornand it never died.(Ion Pacepa, the highest ranking intelligence official ever to defect from the Soviet bloc.)
But Carlos Bringuier was on to the disinformation campaign from its very birthday.
Oliver Stone interviewed me for hours while researching for his movie JFK recalls Bringuier. This was almost 30 years ago. Stones loonyleft credentials werent yet blatant. I figured he was after the truth. So I went along, telling him everything. Well, his movie comes out --and turns out IM involved in the conspiracy to kill JFK! Bringuier laughs. For fifty years the media has either ignored or turned everything Ive told them upside down, says Bringuier. Finally I got sick of it so when a couple years back 60 Minutes asked me for an interview, I told them: sure. Ill do an interviewbut this time it has to be LIVE, no editing. That ended whatever relationship I had with CBS producers.
"U.S leaders who plan on eliminating Cuban leaders should not think that they are themselves safe!" warned Castro on Sept 7, 1963. "We are prepared to answer in kind!"
For 34 years Markus Wolf was the chief of East Germany's foreign intelligence service, a branch of the STASI with many contacts and operations in Castro's Cuba. It was the STASI rather than the KGB that undertook the training of Castro's police and intelligence services. Wolf's autobiography is titled, "Man Without a Face" and subtitled, "The Autobiography of Communism's Greatest Spymaster." Most intelligence experts agree that the subtitle fits. Wolf was once asked about the Kennedy assassination and quickly replied. "Don't ask me ask Fidel Castro.
I generally like Fontova’s writing and I have no doubt Oswald killed Kennedy but I seriously doubt Cuban involvement. The key for me is Oswald’s summer of 63 assassination attempt of General Edwin Walker. There is no way he would have taken a chance on a target like Walker if the Cuban govt was preparing him to take out Kennedy
I’m sure Oswald did it all himself. Dangerously unstable and impulsive left wing loon. Too bad.
Documentary last week said that a secret service agent with an AR-15 did the kill shot “by accident”.
Pacepa was actually in Romanian intellegence.
The Commie did it! End of Story.
The media so wanted it to be a “Right Wing” Conspiracy.
AND when republicans HAD power THEY DID NOTHING... Nothing..
WHICH exposes the FACT they were also controlled by that Cabal.. AS WELL....
thanks KAS.......How could an ‘Agency’ be involved with this plan...step 1. shoot JFK...step 2. escape in a city bus...step 3. go to a movie.........?
Another year and another “ oswald acted alone “ thread.
JFKs official autopsy doesn’t show the damage we see in the zapruder film.
Oswald didn’t act alone
Truth be know, not many people liked Kennedy any more than they liked Castro.. I hated the coward bastard, because of The Bay Of Pigs, which I was involved in..
My only knowledge of a possible explanation about the death of JFK, was my presence at my club Ciro’s on Rush Street in Chicago, where a group of Chicago Mafia hierarchy gathered for a victory celebration on the evening of the assassination, when Jack Ruby’s name came up..
I knew of him in the Strip Club scene in Dallas, and his connection to Chicago, because I designed Stripper Costumes, for the top names in that field at the time.. That’s all I remembered other than they were quite satisfied with the outcome..
It could all be a coincidence, but I never thought so, they didn’t boast much about killing or political trivia, as I recall..

After reading “A Mother in History” I decided that LHO was nuts and for good reason.
I believe Cuban intelligence knew about him and what he may be up to but kept their distance in case he pulled it off.
Kennedy would have been remembered as a failed; weak president had he not been killed.
But he wasn’t; and the left got a huge sympathy boost from his murder. Immense damage to our nation as a result.
And how do you explain Jack Ruby?
