Damn straight Robin ! We all have rights, even when charged.

A calm intentional act of defiance. He was saying 'you've got me, but I got the President, job done'.

Really, when asked 'Did you kill the President?' Oswald replied, "No, I have not been charged with that. In fact nobody has said that to me yet".

Not exactly a declaration of innocence, he was asked if he had killed the President, not if had been charged with killing the President.

Communist and militant groups have used the clenched fist salute since the 1930's.

That was quite a jam he found himself in.

Bill Newman, a credible eyewitness claims all 3 shots came from the grassy knoll.

Here is Bill Newman some 50 years later in an interview with Jesse Ventura describing the same thing.

That "gesture" or "clenched fist salute", is a perfect example of seeing things the way we want to see them.
We want to believe what we want to believe. What we need to believe, really.

Who killed JFK: 52 Years of Enduring Conspiracy Theories

"Four years ago, a team of historians and retired Secret Service officers used the latest digital technology to analyse all the available film and still images taken in Dallas that day. Their conclusion: a "categorical confirmation" that JFK's assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, acted alone."

Doc, I read recently a book from Stephen King - JFK 22.11.1963, and after I finished it, I had very mixed feelings. The writer was also a fan of the Oswald lone nut single killer theory but he admits his wife ( a person who knew personally JFK) wasn't. The idea of the book was that the main character returned back in 1963 to save Kennedy and he succeeded. But I didn't like at all the following chapters-in King's imagination a nuclear war began and America was back in the Middle Ages.
To me there are facts that can't be ignored: Oswald was a bad shooter, he didn't practice since the army, his gun (an old italian rifle from 1944) was a mess, the experts of the Warren Comitee tried to shoot 3 times in 6 seconds on a fixed target and failed even after they repaired Oswald gun. So how anyone could believe this man shoot and killed JFK in 6 seconds?!? And also with the magic bullet almost killed the Governor Connally ??? To me it's unbelievable. The Warren Comittee wrote in their report that Oswald tried to kill General Walker in April 1963 when he was very close to his target and failed. True or not, this show how a bad shooter Lee Harvey Oswald was.
