Lee Harvey Was a Friend of Mine

Lee Oswald Memorial ServiceLee Oswald, the man framed by J Edgar Hoover, Allan Dulles, James Angleton, and many other federal and Texas state government officials, finally received a respectful funeral after 50 years of relentless calumnies this past Sunday November 24, 2013.


Lee Oswald Grave SiteJudyth Vary Baker, Lee’s true love from the summer of 1963, led a small group of about 2 dozen mourners to the grave site of the slain US intelligence agent where they paid respects to the man gunned down by mobster Jack Ruby on national television 2 days after the CIA led coup assassinated President Kennedy in cold blood on November 22, 1963.
 
Although he survived the shooting, Oswald died unexpectedly at Parkland Memorial Hospital after President Johnson insisted vehemently that he speak with the attending physician, Dr Crenshaw, in the middle of surgery. When the doctor returned, the mysterious man in the operating room with Crenshaw  had disappeared and Oswald was dead, even after Crenshaw declared that his patient would likely survive.
 
When Lee was buried, he was accorded an insulting tombstone plaque reading only Oswald; but on this Sunday afternoon, well wishers placed a colorful bed of flowers around the stone  slab in a token attempt to redress the poverty of his grave site.
 
Baker opened the ceremony with a few prefatory remarks, followed by author Robert Grodin who gave a brief summary of the tragic events which falsely implicated Oswald in 2 crimes which were never adjudicated. Singer Homer Henderson sang an a capella version of Lee Harvey Was a Friend of Mine, joined in chorus by those gathered. Chaplain Hy McEnery, Green Beret, gave the eulogy.
 
Although the unusually grey and cold weather abbreviated the proceedings only slightly, a measure of history was finally righted and reclaimed.

Great story. Why can't I read this in the mainstream press - because its corporate owners have an incestuous relationship with our national security state / CIA?
