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

Submitted by BertE (United States), Dec 19, 2009 at 10:27

Oswald was just a terrible waste of human life. A man so confused and mixed up but wanting to make a big splash in the world but not even in the slightest way having the wherewithal to do so. His wherewithal was killing. First trying to kill Walker and the Kennedy. Succeeding in the latter case. Plain and simple. A mixed up, confused, terribly frustrated and more or less worthless human being striking out in a big way. So much easier to destroy than create. Oswald knew that and acted on the implulse.
