Marguerite Oswald Statement On Warren Commission Judgement "LONE ASSASSIN' Will be Overruled.
Single page typed statement signed, undated by Marguerite Oswald "Marguerite C. Oswald", mother of Lee Harvey Oswald. 8.5" x 11". Accompanied by a signed glossy black and white photograph of Eric Sevareid, 7" x 9". On November 22, 1963, Sevareid joined Walter Cronkite on CBS television with a commentary about the assassination of John F. Kennedy and the road ahead for the new president, Lyndon Johnson. From the collection of Ron Hoskins, assassinologist.
Marguerite had always contested her son's innocence and insisted he was a patsy within a greater conspiracy, and certainly believed to whatever degree he was involved, he certainly was NOT alone, nor the "lone gunman" with a magic bullet. Her statement offered here is shown below:
".. The Warren Report is often wrong, is full of unchallenged contradictions in witnessed testimony, and is based on a closed mind approach.
For these reasons there is no doubt in my mind that the judgement as brought in by the SEVEN COMMISSION MEMBERS - "LONE ASSASSIN" - will be over-ruled.
To believe otherwise would be to dis-believe in America, reason and justice.
Also I would like to state, in my opinion it was un-American of the Seven Commission Member not to include the words "ALLEGED OR ACCUSED'.
You will note that my son, Lee Harvey Oswald never received his constitutional right of a trial by jury..."
On June 25-28, 1967, CBS had a four-hour examination of the Warren Report on four successive nights, featuring interviews with witnesses Texas Governor John Connally, writer Mark Lane, New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, as well as an interview with Lee Harvey Oswald’s mother, Marguerite Claverie. The original idea was to put the Warren Report on trial, but the project evolved over several months into its final format. The team of reporters included Walter Cronkite, Dan Rather, Eric Sevareid, Mike Wallace, Bill Stout, and Eddie Barker, news director of KRLD-TV, Dallas-Fort Worth. The show explored three central themes: Did Lee Harvey Oswald act alone? Was there a conspiracy? Why is there so much skepticism over the Warren Report? The series was an enormous success. The last hour, entitled “Why Doesn’t America Believe the Warren Report?” looked at the commission’s organization and procedures and interviewed members.
A fantastic set.
