I am pleased to announce the newest senior member of the Oswald Innocence Campaign. He is Aaron Paterson, and he is our first senior member from Australia.
Aaron works as an advocate for the provision of legal services to the indigenous people of Australia. And, it's that aspect of the case- Oswald not being provided a lawyer- that jumps out at him the most. And of course, it is an outrage. Officialdom has it that Oswald refused all legal help except for John Abt, a New York attorney, but flying in the face of that is the fact that Oswald appealed to the public several times for someone to come forward to provide him with legal assistance. He didn't say for someone to come forward to try to contact John Abt for him; he asked for general legal assistance. Here is what Aaron wrote:
Hi Ralph, my name is Aaron Paterson, an Australian aged 52, I have been an avid student of Lee Harvey Oswald's innocence since I was twelve years of age when I saw news footage of him at the Dallas Police Dept. As a kid i watched LHO speaking to the press and he looked like he was scared, surprised, confused. Years later i realised that he never got the legal counsel he sought, he was a young man with values, a young wife and two small kids, i wondered what was more important then providing for your kids that would allow a person to forsake them and be involved in the assassination, no car, bus, taxi, walk, shoot a policeman 45 minutes later, and arrested not long after, nothing adds up to me. So many actual witnesses' evidence covered, ignored and not used at the Warren Commission who had a member investigating Kennedy's murder, after Kennedy sacked him, Dulles? Again nothing makes sense for Oswald to be the gunmen. I have not written books but kept information from many first hand sources that clearly make more sense then what we are officially led to believe. Cheers, Aaron Paterson, Rockhampton, Central Queensland, Queensland 4701. Australia
P.S. I endorse that Lee Harvey Oswald was standing in the doorway of the Texas School Book Depository at 12.30 PM on Friday, 22nd November, 1963.
Welcome to the OIC, Aaron.
