151. The doc states when the ARRANGEMENTS were made for Oswald... enter the Soviet Union, not when he actually crossed the border.

The document clearly states that "arrangements were made for his entry into the Soviet Union in September 1959". In October 1959, Oswald actually physically entered the Soviet Union. Therefore, the date of Oswald's entry into the Soviet Union is correctly stated in the document.


As to the classification stamp and why there is no declassification stamp, it is very possible that this may have been a document that was to never intended to see the light of day.


The comments about the mafia being responsible for the assassination is a deliberate red herring. It was designed to cause any subsequent investigation into JFK's death to spend valuable time and resources chasing down leads that went nowhere.


The first two pages of the document appear to have been typed by a secretary or other administrative person. This document is consistent with what I've seen of governmental documents of that time frame...and I've seen quite a few.

The third page signed by McCone appears to have been typed on a different typewriter with a different set of fonts. IMHO, this was apparently created as a personal note from McCone to Rowley. It would have been the last page in the document and would therefore have seen very little in the way of handling. Additionally, the signature page has it's own classification stamp, lending credibility to the idea that this page was prepared separately.
