Interesting Random Piece of History 8 - Oswald Interview

On August 17th 1963 Lee Harvey Oswald, representing the organisation Fair Play for Cuba gave an interview to William Stuckley of the New Orleans branch of NBC radio for the programme Latin Listening Post in which he laid out the position of his organisation on the issues of Cuba, Fidel Castro and international communism. Three months later Oswald would be charged with the assassination of President Kennedy. One day later he himself would be shot dead. This interview is absolutely fascinating. Of course according to those who believe Oswald was not the killer, or if he was he was working for the CIA or Mafia, this interview was a sham designed to identify him in the public as a communist. It sounds absurd but his known associations with several anti Castro right wingers with CIA connections makes this more plausible than one might think. Enjoy !
