289. Confront this -- Why did this fellow go to the Cuban Embassy in Mexico City and claim to be Oswald?
Show me where I insulted somebody and I'll apologize.

Here's swomething to discuss, evidence of conspiracy and cover-up:

Things get even more interesting. The CIA taped a voice calling the Cuban Embassy claiming to be Oswald -- but it wasn't Oswald's voice.

J Edgar Hoover told Lyndon B Johnson that the voice on the phone wasnt Lee Harvey Oswald. Only a transcript of this conversation survives; the tape having been erased.

Tape: Call on JFK Wasn't Oswald

.c The Associated Press
Sunday, Nov 21, 1999

WASHINGTON (AP) - Hours after President Kennedy was assassinated, FBI agents reportedly listened to a tape of a phone call that a man identifying himself as ``Lee Oswald'' had placed to the Soviet Embassy in Mexico City.

They made a startling discovery: The voice on the tape was not Oswald's, government records say.

This controversial tape has been a question mark in the assassination investigation since Kennedy was killed Nov. 22, 1963. Only now - 36 years to the day after the murder - has the government released a flurry of new details about it.

The CIA said years ago that the tapes on which it recorded the call were erased. Documents released in recent years said otherwise. The latest and newest of declassified documents offer more evidence that the tapes survived.

The discovery that the voice on the tape was someone other than Oswald was a ``disquieting discovery because the man who impersonated Oswald was still at large,'' said John Newman, an ex-military intelligence analyst, author and professor at the University of Maryland.


So, stopbush. What have you got to say about that? Or will you refer me to Posner or Bugliosi?
