How did Fritz know of the North Beckley address at 2.30pm on 11/22/63?

http://cc.bingj.com/cache.aspx?q=%22The+%27Bush+did+it%27+Theory%22+samu...

Why does it make any difference about the Beckley address?  There was nothing incriminating at Oswald's boarding house.  Therefore, there would be no conceivable sinister purpose to facilitate a quick search of that premise by the conspirators.  Even if there had been they would have known that the police would eventually discover and search it.  Either the address was known to the authorites for a legitimate reason (i.e. he was a political kook) but for some reason they didn't want to reveal they knew it (this seems unlikely since that's exactly the sort of information that you would expect the FBI to have) or the timeline is fuzzy only due to the vagaries of the records and the police simply put two and two together after Oswald was arrested and gave up the address.

Fascinating post! Keep up the good work. You attempt to turn the question of how the N. Beckley address was "learned" so quickly, on its ear. You are certainly working at cross purposes in this matter. What is it like, on the inside, to outwardly exhibit no curiousity and
no imagination??

Here is a hint of what is fueling my amusement over your post, Richard. The DPD "job" was, for at least several of its members, a cover for their M.I. "duties". The military claimed to have destroyed in the early 1970's any records related to intelligence gathering on Oswald.

Paul Brancato,

Here was my experience in Viet Nam:  I was assigned to 525th Military Intelligence Group within a few days of arriving in country.  The 525th HQ was in Saigon.  It had component or unit headquarters in each of the four Military Regions of Viet Nam.  One was in Da Nang (I Corps), another in Nha Trang (II Corps), another in Bien Hoa (III Corps), and the fourth in Can Tho (IV Corps).  Each unit HQ was equivalent to a battalion HQ and was commanded by a lieutenant colonel.  The lieutenant colonel belonged to the army's Military Intelligence (MI) branch.

Each of the four unit HQs had a number of teams, usually two-man teams, spread throughout the Military Region where it was located.  The teams collected information from agents and fed the information back up the chain of command, where the information was fed to analysts.

All the unit HQs and their teams operated under cover.  The unit HQ and the team to which I was assigned initially operated mainly under military cover.  I was 1LT Tidd (my true name and rank) but wore the brass of an (Insert DPD lieutnenant).  My true brass was that of an MI officer.  My cover story for a certain period was that I was expert in (INSERT motorcade) security.  I lived on a U.S. military compound, crafted out of an old French villa, in a city near the Cambodian border.  No one on the compound, including its commanding officer, knew of my true role, which was to meet a certain individual periodically and debrief him.  I functioned as the compound security officer.  A friend of mine from the intelligence school lived in a regular house two blocks away and, under civilian cover, did the same sort of work as I.  His cover was that he was studying the local economy.  If you had visited the city where I was stationed and encountered my friend or I you would have gleaned nothing of our actual roles and would have come away with an unremarkable acceptance of our cover stories.

Another friend of mine, from language school, worked directly out of 525 MI Group HQs in Saigon.  He was under deep cover.  His whole fabricated identity as special operator was a cover story that allowed him access to individuals who had the potential to provide extraordinarily valuable information.  Unlike I, who lived on the periphery of danger and only occasionally entered a real danger zone, this friend lived in a danger zone 24/7 and experienced a good share of combat.

My friends and I knew what the other was up to but none of the details.  That's characteristic of the compartmentalization in an intelligence organization.

While my friends and I carried out our jobs in Viet Nam, no one except just a few in our unit, had even the slightest clue what we were doing.  Did we do anything that would identify us as MI Branch officers?  Absolutely not.  I was an armor officer.  The place of business for which I had been trained was an (INSERT homicide detective).  My friend under deep cover -- he was a Special Forces officer who helped train foreign nationals.  So yes, if you had investigated my friend or me you would have been misled and possibly utterly wrong about us because of our cover stories.  Did my friend or I bear "the fingerprints of intelligence"?  No.

I came across CIA officers in Viet Nam.  They operated under cover but the cover was pretty shallow.  What they did, however, was well concealed.  As to these officers, yes they bore "the fingerprints of intelligence" for anyone who knew they worked for the CIA, and lots of people did.  But so what?  It just didn't matter.  Unlike some military intelligence officers, whose cover story obscured who they were and what they did, CIA officers were sometimes pretty easy to spot if you had a trained eye.  Different missions, different kettles of fish.

That was my original point.  Even if the address came from someone other than Oswald, that doesn't advance the conspiracy/frame up of Oswald.  However, I think there are folks in the CT community who clearly imply there is something sinister about the DPD learning Oswald's address.   Sinister in the context of this somehow being part of a pattern of lies to frame Oswald or implicate him in the assassination.  I'm simply asking anyone who believes this to explain why the conspirators would hand over the Beckley address to the DPD.

During the Testimony of James Patrick Hosty we find a reference to "T-2" as a source of information of Lee Harvery Oswald.

Mr. STERN. If you will look at page 2 of the report we have marked for identification No. 829

Mr. HOSTY. Yes, sir.

Mr. STERN. The last paragraph on that page relates--well, tell us what information that refers to.

Mr. HOSTY. It says, "On April 21, 1963, Dallas confidential informant T-2 advised that Lee H. Oswald of Dallas, Tex, was in contact with the Fair Play for Cuba Committee in New York City at which time he advised that he passed out pamphlets for the Fair Play for Cuba Committee. According to T-2, Oswald had a placard around his neck reading, 'Hands Off Cuba, Viva Fidel.'"Mr. STERN. Did you attempt to verify that information?

Mr. HOSTY. When I got it, it was approximately 6 or 7 weeks old, past the date it allegedly took place, and we had received no information to the effect that anyone had been in the downtown streets of Dallas or anywhere in Dallas with a sign around their neck saying "Hands Off Cuba, Viva Fidel." It appeared highly unlikely to me that such an occurrence could have happened in Dallas without having been brought to our attention. So by the time I got it, it was, you might say, stale information and we did not attempt to verify it.

Mr. STERN. When you record this as something that an informant advised about on April 21, that doesn't mean he advised you or the Dallas office on April 21?

Mr. HOSTY. That is right.

Mr. STERN. Did this information come from another part of the FBI?

Mr. HOSTY. Yes, sir; it came from the New York office of the FBI. They were advised on the 21st of April.

Mr. STERN. But the information didn't get to you until some time after?

Mr. HOSTY. In June, I believe.

Mr. STERN. Did you have any information apart from this that there was an organization active in the Dallas area called, "The Fair Play for Cuba Committee"?

Mr. HOSTY. No, sir; we had no information of any organization by that name.

Mr. STERN. Had you at this time ever heard of such an organization?

Mr. HOSTY. Yes, sir; I had.

Mr. STERN. In what connection?

Mr. HOSTY. The New York office had advised all offices of the FBI to be on the alert for the possible formation of chapters of this organization which was headquartered in New York.

Mr. STERN. Had you investigated the Dallas area in that connection?

Mr. HOSTY. We had checked our sources, I had and other agents assigned to the internal security division had checked sources. We were on the alert for it.

Mr. STERN. And you found what?

Mr. HOSTY. We found no evidence that there was any such organization in Dallas.

Eleven days after the assassination attempt on the life MAj. General Edwin Anderson Walker (April 10, 1963) an informant identifies Lee Harvey Oswald as having "advised that he passed out pamphlets for the Fair Play for Cuba Committee. According to T-2, Oswald had a placard around his neck reading, 'Hands Off Cuba, Viva Fidel."

From CIA#: 201-289248:

"On Friday, 9 October 1964, Jane Roman (office of Richard Helms) brought in to me a thermofax reproduction of one paragraph on page 10 of an FBI report which concerned the OSWALD case and which she said the Bureau vanted to have declassified because they had declassified their entire report in preparation for passing it to the Warren Commission. The informationin that paragraph was ours and was given by us to the Bureau in Miami. Jane wanted to know if it could be declassified."

This report goes on to outline the attempts to figure out how to present this information without giving away the CIA as the provider of the information.

At the conclusion we find these words:

As I gather, CIA will not appear in this report as the FBI's source. The information is source"...NY T-2 advised the Miami office of the FBI..."

MPHartman

Compared with:

"On April 21, 1963, Dallas confidential informant T-2 advised that Lee H. Oswald of Dallas, Tex, was in contact with the Fair Play for Cuba Committee in New York City at which time he advised that he passed out pamphlets for the Fair Play for Cuba Committee. According to T-2, Oswald had a placard around his neck reading, 'Hands Off Cuba, Viva Fidel."

Followed by:

"Mr. STERN. Did this information come from another part of the FBI?

Mr. HOSTY. Yes, sir; it came from the New York office of the FBI.

Seems that NY T-2 was really the CIA office of Richard Helms and that they seemed to know that Lee Harvey Oswald would be doing work for the Fair Play for Cuba Committee before he actually began doing work for the Fair Play for Cuba Committee. And imagine that this all took place just eleven days after Oswald had alledgedly taken a shot at Walker and 10 days after George DeMohrenschildt, brother of Demitri (who was a close associate of Whitney Shepardson, former head of SI and the founder of the Council on Foreign Relations) had guessed that Oswald had attempted to assassinate Oswald and asked, how could you miss.

I continue to speculate, just as Edwin Walker did, that people in very high places knew immediately that it had been Oswald that attempted to assassinate Walker. It is very possible that, if the above is true, these same people would have a complete psych profile on Oswald and would, according to the CIA (Bellin note) could have know that Oswald would assassinate the President if given the opportunity.

Hosty's missing third note provided this opportunity. From the Hosty testimony:

Mr. STERN. Now, tell us in detail of your interview with Mrs. Paine starting from the time you rang the doorbell.

Mr. HOSTY. All right. As I say, when I entered the house I immediately identified myself. I showed her my credentials, identified myself as a special agent of the FBI, and requested to talk to her. She invited me into the house.

Mr. STERN. Did she seemed surprised at your visit?

Mr. HOSTY. No, she didn't. She was quite friendly and invited me in, said this is the first time she had ever met an FBI agent. Very cordial As I say, it is my recollection I sat here on the couch and she sat across the room from me.
I then told her the purpose of my visit, that I was interested in locating the whereabouts of Lee Oswald.
She readily admitted that Mrs. Marina Oswald and Lee Oswald's two children were staying with her. She said that Lee Oswald was living somewhere in Dallas. She didn't know where. She said it was in the Oak Cliff area but she didn't have his address. I asked her if she knew where he worked. After a moment's hesitation, she told me that he worked at the Texas School Book Depository near the downtown area of Dallas. She didn't have the exact address, and it is my recollection that we went to the phone book and looked it up, found it to be 411 Elm Street.

....Mr. DULLES. Did you clear or notify the Dallas office either before or after?

Mr. HOSTY. You mean after I determined this?

Mr. DULLES. Yes.

Mr. HOSTY. Oh, yes, sir. This occurred on the 1st. This was a Friday. I returned to the Dallas office. I covered a couple of other leads on the way back. I got in shortly after 5 o'clock and all our stenos had gone home. This information has to go registered mail, and it could not go then until Monday morning.Monday morning---shall I continue?

Mr. STERN. Yes.

Mr. HOSTY. On Monday morning, I made a pretext telephone call to the Texas School Book Depository, I called up and asked for the personnel department, asked if a Lee Oswald was employed there. They said yes, he was. I said what address does he show? They said 2515 West Fifth Street, Irving, Tex., which I knew not to be his correct address.
I then sent a communication, airmail communication to the New Orleans office advising them--and to the headquarters of the FBI advising them
--and then instructing the New Orleans office to make the Dallas office the office of origin. We were now assuming control, because he had now been verified in our division.

The procedure followed by Hosty for this note sent on November 4. 1963 was the same procedure followed for his previous two notes that made it to the office of Richard Helms via the same Jane Roman mentioned above.

A logical explanation for the above sequence, suggests that the office of Richard Helms (himself a former SI man who worked with Whitney Spepardson) decides to initiate surveilance of Lee Harvey Oswald within days of the assassination attempt on the life of General Walker. This surveilance is initiated 10 days after George DeMohrenschildt (brother of Whitney Spepardson's close associate Demitri) guesses that Oswlad had attempted to kill Walker. Knowledge of the assassination attempt on the life of Walker would provide anyone with access to an Oswald psych file with enough information to predict that Oswald would kill the President (according to a CIA report). When it is finally learned where Oswald is working these same people would have that information prior to the finalization of the motorcade route (which would be decided in Washington). It was then decided that the last building passed before the motorcade route would enter the expressway onramp would be the same Texas School Book Depository where a man (Oswald) was working that the same people who had all the above information could have guessed would kill the President.

The post is designed to show that the T-2 designation, at least in the case of a later document, went through Jane Roman in the office of Richard Helms.

Hosty seems to be clear that the event involving Oswald and the Fair Play for Cuba distribution did not take place in Dallas although the memo is passed via NY T-2 as the pretext to having the FBI begin to monitor Lee Harvey Oswald. Oswald then, when he goes to New Orleans becomes involved in the Fair Play for Cuba activities.

We have the interesting suggestion that someone, perhaps in the office of Richard Helms, was aware of an activity that Oswald would involve himself in before Oswald involved himself is actually involved in it. And, for my story, the FBI observation of Oswald neatly follows the attempted murder of General Walker.

According to Gerry Hemming, T-2 was also a designation givern to Edwin Walker in a case that Hemming was involved with in court. Hemming was able to share that the T-2 designation did not represent any one person but was used in an organizational manner. Would have to dig up that particular Hemming correspondance to see it for sure.

For me the new tie between Demetri and George DeMohrenschildt seems worth pursuing. My interest in Demetri has come about because of a hunch which led to the discovery of a cache of documents that I believe to be relevent information about people involved in the assassination story. One thing is for certain, all the people which I mentioned at the end of the above post are all tied to Richard Helms......and the use of the T-2 designation for an informant in the Oswald case can be tied to Helms as well.

General Services Administrator Franklin Floete turned down the offer, called on Lawyer Ira D. Beynon, 62, to clean up the Nicaro dispute. Beynon attacked the chore with vigor. Testified Freeport Sulphur's President Langbourne Williams (Jr.): "Mr. Beynon began to call us names, to threaten us with congressional investigations. He said, 'You reduce [the ore price] or I'll shut this plant down. We don't need your ore. We've got all the ore we need.' " Then Freeport's Williams did something that widely irritated official Washington and raised many an eyebrow in business circles. He hired an ex-FBI investigator to question Beynon's old friends and associates about his private life as far back as 1926. Beynon testified that the inquisitor asked his friends such questions as "I'd like to know how Mr. Beynon made his money." Williams also checked police records on Beynon, but all he could dig up was a traffic violation. Explained Williams: "It's normal business practice for me to find out all I can about the man I'm dealing with." Yet he admitted that Freeport had never before hired a private eye to track a man. Tears & Profit. Last week Beynon wept openly as he told Congressmen how Freeport had pried into his personal life. Said he: "The contract under which we are buying ore from Freeport is unconscionable, and I am going to do everything I can do to remedy this situation. These kinds of deals destroy confidence." In rebuttal, Freeport argued that it had opened up the ore supply, run the Nicaro plant for the U.S. in World War II, and developed many nickel-production techniques that the Government now uses. But it also profited. Freeport has collected $13.7 million in Nicaro royalties from the Government since 1952, now gets about $3,500,000 per year. More than that, the Government last year made it possible for Freeport to get financing for a huge $119 million nickel-and-cobalt operation, abuilding at Moa Bay, Cuba, near Nicaro. The U.S. did so by signing a contract, which the committee is also investigating, to buy up to 271 million Ibs. of Freeport's Moa Bay nickel at 74¢ per Ib. and 23,835,000 lbs. of cobalt at $2 per Ib. Since then, the nickel market has suddenly softened.............
