Lee Harvey Oswald was a KGB ally personally instructed to assassinate Kennedy by Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev. Shortly thereafter, the Soviets changed their mind, and Oswald was asked to abandon the plan. But Oswald refuses, upsetting a blind love for all things USSR.
A new book by two former intelligence chiefs – one from the West, one from the East – gives rise to this story on a voluntary heap of JFK assassination theories.
“Operation Dragon: Inside the Secret Kremlin of America,”(Encounter Books), Ambassador R. It was written by James Woolsey, who ran the CIA from 1993–1995 (and, ironically, Aldrich Ames, a CIA officer Russian double agent) and abruptly resigned during the scandal over the lieutenant. General Ioan Mihai Pespa, a former acting chief of Communist Romania’s espionage service and “the highest-ranking intelligence officer from an enemy country who had ever been given political asylum in the United States” (Pespa died earlier this month from COVID Done).
The authors claim that all the evidence needed to make their case is contained in the 26-volume Warren Commission report, but is so much “coded” that until now no one understood its importance.
“Paused, these pieces of evidence prove that John F. Kennedy’s murderer, Lee Harvey Oswald, had a secret meeting in Mexico City with his Soviet case officer, ‘Comrade Kostin’,” the author writes, “Which … belongs to the thirteenth of the KGB. Department for killings abroad.”
According to the authors, the Soviet recruited Oswald in 1957, when he was an American Marine in Japan. After working undercover missions for him for many years – including providing information allowing him to shoot the American pilot Gary Powers in 1960 – he was assigned by Khrushchev himself in 1962 to begin preparations for Kennedy’s assassination.
“Oswald wished to remain in the Soviet Union, but was eventually persuaded to return to the US to assassinate President Kennedy, whom Khrushchev despised,” he writes. “Oswald was … given to a Soviet wife and sent back to America in June 1962.”
According to the authors, sometime between that June and April 1963, the Soviets changed their minds, and called back the assignment. Oswald, however, was very gung-ho, and was set to see-through.
“Oswald knew that Nikita Khrushchev, the leader of Oswald’s paradise and the new house of the Soviet Union, had entrusted him to that task, and he believed he could pull it off,” the author writes. “By this time, however, the KGB and [the country’s] The leaders felt that Khrushchev’s crazy ideas were giving his country a terrible reputation. . . Another wrong move by the hot-headed Khrushchev, and nuclear war could occur. “
The authors provide no evidence of a murder order, or any order to reverse it. They present evidence about Oswald’s meeting with KGB agents and often other preparations for Oswan and his family to return to the Soviet Union.
In one such letter, Oswald wrote to the Soviet embassy on July 1, 1963, asking for separate visas for him and his wife and daughters. The authors believe this makes it clear that “Oswald wanted to see his wife and children back in the Soviet Union before President Kennedy’s assassination and required a separate entry visa for himself [use] After completing its mission. “
The date of November 9 of that year, just two weeks before Kennedy’s assassination – was written after Oswald returned from a trip to Mexico City, and references a meeting with “Comrade Kostin”, the author of “Valery Nostikov.” An identified PGU Thirteenth Department official who identifies as. “
The authors also offer evidence that they consider the evidence of Soviet attempts at disinfection after the fact, as they tried to convince the world that the killing was driven by any entity but the Soviet Union.
One such piece of evidence is the first book released along these lines, “Oswald: Assassin or Fallen Man?” Which collided with bookstores in 1964. The book claims that Oswald was “an FBI agent provocative writer with a CIA background,” and that he was a man of decadence for the real culprits, including “some CIA and FBI officials” with reactionaries such as H.L. Hunt. Oil billionaire. “

They also claim that the author of the book, Joachim Josten, “was a German-American American communist identified as a PGU agent,” and the book’s publishers were similarly involved.
Whatever be the veracity of the author’s claims, those surrounded by Kennedy’s assassination will find much to do here. If the matter they settle is not ironic at all, then their certainty is indisputable.
“Finally, there is no doubt that Lee Harvey Oswald was trained by the KGB to assassinate President John F. Kennedy,” the author writes.
“Even after the KGB had ordered Oswald to stand down, Oswald stubbornly moved forward that he considered his personal mission to be the best he had ever had by his hero Khrushchev.”
