Back in 2005 I received a CD of images from Johann W. Rush. Mr. Rush was the camera man who filmed Lee Harvey Oswald in New Orleans as he passed out pro-Castro flyers. Rush seems to be quite conservative and believes that conspiracy theories surrounding the Kennedy assassination had their origins in Soviet propaganda. In 1991 he went to the Soviet Embassy in Washington D.C. and inquired if they had any English translations of 1963 Tass or Soviet press reports. They referred him to the Library of Congress where he was given a roll of microfilm covering that period.

I have just begun to go through the news stories on the CD. I do not agree with Rush's interpretation. It seems to me that there is ample evidence that the Soviet's, first of all, genuinely believed that Kennedy was the victim of right-wing forces, and that, secondly, they were probably correct.
