Reasons of State-Part 1

From the Warren Commission Report (p.591 of the New York Times Edition) :

Speculation.--The Dallas police suspected Oswald and Ruby of being involved in an attack on General Walker and planned to arrest the two when the FBI intervened, at the request of Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, and asked the police not to do so for reasons of state.

Commission Finding.--This allegation appeared in the November 29, 1963 issue (actually printed on November 25 or 26) of a German weekly newspaper, Deutsche Zeitung und Soldaten Zeitung, published in Munich. The allegation later appeared in the National Enquirer of May 17, 1964. The Commission has been reliably informed that the statement was fabricated by an editor of the newspaper. No evidence in support of this statement has ever been advanced or uncovered. In their investigation of the attack on General Walker, the Dallas police uncovered no suspects and planned no arrests. The FBI had no knowledge that Oswald was responsible for the attack until Marina Oswald revealed the information on December 3, 1963.

It might be pointed out that neither did the FBI (or the Warren Commission) exhibit any curiosity as to how an obscure German newspaper knew about Oswald's alleged involvement in the Walker assassination attempt before they did.

What exactly did this far-right German newspaper have to say? From a translation provided to researcher Irving Heineman by General Walker:

The Strange Case of Oswald
The murderer of Kennedy made an attempt on U.S. General Walker's life early in the summer when General Walker was sitting in his study. The bullet missed Walker's head only by inches. Oswald was seized, but following investigation--as it was reported to us--was stopped by U.S. Attorney General, Robert Kennedy. In the case that Oswald would have been imprisoned for many years and so he would not have been able to commit the murder of John F. Kennedy, the brother of Robert Kennedy.

Some excerpts from the National Enquirer article by John Henshaw, Enquirer Washington Bureau Chief:

Washington--The hottest story making the rounds here is that the U.S. Justice Department prevented the arrest of Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby BEFORE the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Oswald and the man who killed him, Ruby, were suspect of being partners in crime seven months before the President's death.

The incredible details of the story are so explosive that officials won't even answer "no comment" when queried about it But the story being discussed by top-level government officials reveals:

1. That the Justice Department deliberately kept Oswald and Ruby out of jail before the assassination.

2. That Dallas cops suspected Oswald of being the gunman and Ruby the paymaster in a plot to murder former Major General A. Walker--seven months before the President was assassinated.

3. That the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency was using Ruby to recruit commandos for raids against Castro's Cuba. To prevent this explosive information from being disclosed, the CIA asked the Justice Dept. to step in and stop the Dallas police from arresting Jack Ruby, as well as Oswald.

A top-secret document--a letter signed by a high official of the Justice Dept.--was sent in April 1963 from the Justice Dept. to Dallas Chief of Police Jesse E. Curry requesting the Dallas police NOT to arrest Oswald and Ruby in connection with the attempted slaying of General Walker.

After a sniper shot at, but missed, General Walker in Dallas, April 10, 1963, Dallas police suspected that Oswald was the sniper and Ruby the payoff man.

The cops were set to arrest the pair. But they never got the chance because of the heavy pressure brought to bear by the Justice Dept. And so Oswald and Ruby were allowed to remain free. An seven months later, on last November 22 in Dallas, Oswald was able to kill the President of the United States.

The top-secret document--a copy of it is reportedly in the hands of the Presidential commission investigating the assassination--bares a web of intrigue that involves the Federal Bureau of Investigation, along with the Justice Dept. and the Central Intelligence Agency.

It is so politically explosive that the Presidential commission, headed by Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warrent, has even withheld it from one of its own members, Senator Richard Russell (D., Ga.).

It is feared that Senator Russell, who leads the South in the fight against the civil rights bill, might use the document against the Justice Dept. and its chief, Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, a leader in the fight for civil rights.

The document--requesting the cops not to arrest Ruby and Oswald--contradicts the FBI report on the assassination and the subsequent murder of Oswald.


A high FBI was asked by a top official in the Justice Dept., after it was notified by the CIA of the potentially volatile situation in Dallas, to request Dallas police not to arrest Oswald or Ruby.

The FBI official refused to do so, saying it would be obstructing justice and therefore would be a crime.

The FBI man said he would make the request only if he were officially directed to do so in a communication signed by the official.

The FBI official then recieved a signed directive. He contacted Dallas police and urged them not to arrest Oswald and Ruby.

But the Dallas police also wanted an official signed communication.

Thereupon the Justice Dept. sent the communication to Dallas Police Chief Curry asking that Oswald and Ruby be left strictly alone.

The department explainted it didn't want Oswald and Ruby arrrested because of "reasons of state."

True or not, General Walker appeared to believe it. In a signed statement in November 1991 he said:

The President went to Dallas knowing and protecting his November assassin Lee H. Oswald from prosecution for his April Crime "Attempted Assassination of the former General working at his desk in his Dallas home, 9:00 p.m. April 10.

The Kennedy protection included an early-morning secret release of the prime suspect Lee H. Oswald, from Dallas Police Custody on Kennedy orders, April 11.

The President did not live to know that he knew his assassin but everyone else lived to know that he did and that his assassin could not be prosecuted for the November Crime of his Kennedy protection from prosecution for his April Crime.

Now over forty years later no documentation on these alleged events or the alleged Justice Department communication has been found. Neither do our sources seem very credible--an American supermarket tabloid and a German neo-Nazi publication.

Tomorrow: could it be true? New evidence.

I believe there is a thread of truth running through this story. However there is so much disinformation in the story that it becomes unbelievable.
The truth is ..It was the FBI who learned that oswald was ONE of two men who had staged the HOAX of the attempt on Walker's life. Both Oswald and George De Morhrnschildt were secretly working for RFK in a plot to inflitrate Oswald into Castro's island fortress.

On what are you basing that last allegation, Walt?

I'm basing that on a lifetime of studying the murder in Dealey Plaza.

It is common knowledge that Hoover really believed that Lee Oswald was a turncoat marine who had "defected" to Russia. Hoover hated him because he thought he was a disloyal american and a commie. He had the power to illegally open peoples mail, and he had ordered that Lee Oswald's mail box be kept under surveilance by his agent in the PO, US Postal Inspector Harry Holmes.

As a result of this surveillance Hoover knew that Lee Oswald had ordered a rifle from Kleines Sporting Goods. His FBI agents did some snooping ( they simply took the number off the MO and asked Holmes who had purchased it)They discovered hat DeMorenschidt had bought the Postal MO and gave it to Lee Oswald to purchase the rifle. The FBI had a large file on George De Morhenschildt, and they found out that He and Lee were plotting to stage a hoax shooting at one of Castro's most vocal foes General Edwin Walker. The idea behind the plot was that the police would discover very quickly that the commie turncoat marine had tried to kill Walker and was fleeing prosecution.

De M and Lee had created a false dossier ( a blue three ring binder ) that made it appear that Lee oswald had carefully planned to kill Walker. The false dossier contained a of Oswald the armed revolutionary, and photos of Walker's house his plan for the attack and his escape route.

Lee intended for the cops to discover the notebook after they went to his apartment because Marina had called Ruth Paine in a panic because Lee had left a note that said he might be killed in some action he was involved in.

The plot never bloomed because Marina fell asleep, and never discovered the note until vey late and Lee arrived almost immediately after she found the note.......

I have to presume that is all speculation on your part and it's interesting to compare it to the scenario laid down by Paul Trejo
