Reader comment on item: Lee Harvey Oswald's Malign Legacy

Submitted by Gunther H. Schiff (United States), Nov 21, 2007 at 23:54

It has been some time since I reviewed the findings of the Commission which reviewed all of the available data regarding Kennedy's assasination. However, to label him an active communist working in concert with or without fellow travelers is, to the best of my recollection without factual foundation. It seems that Oswald's desire to murder the President may well have been simply the act of a temporarily deranged individual seeking fame and a place in the history books. It may also have been engendered by Communist functionaries, but there was no evidence of such a presence in the facts as found by the Commission, if I remember correctly.
