Paul Carpenter "This is the fateful rifle of Lee Oswald." -- Marina Oswald, before the Warren Commission. She spoke English as a second language, but it's still an odd way of speaking, isn't it?

Richard Hooke as Ralph said, Marina did not want to be deported and she had the lives of her kids to think about - the strongest nation in the history of the world was bearing down on her - what was she to do? She said what they told her to say; and I do not find that odd - Marina is a survivor.

Juliette de la Bretoniere Yes, it is odd. Marina saying "This is the fateful rifle of Lee Oswald" sounds like acting a scripted sentence. It sounds so fake! And it has nothing to do with speaking English as a 2nd language. It would have been credible or genuine if you will, if she had said: "Yes, this is my husbands rifle."

Ralph Cinque My point is that for Marina, it wasn't just a matter of lying and acting. I don't believe she could lie or act that well. Something happened in her mind that she suppressed the truth about her life with Oswald, and she pasted in this new narrative and began speaking of it as her own. The truth had to still be there in the depth of her mind. She couldn't erase it completely. Maybe in her dreams it came out. But, in her waking hours, she had so many people around her that were supporting the new paradigm and reinforcing it vigorously that it was relatively easy to go along with it. For months, her whole life was being controlled and managed: where she lived, when she ate, when she slept, who she saw, when she went to a doctor; everything. And at the point that her confinement ended, and she became a free person, she continued to be followed, observed, and monitored. And I know that because people who know her have told me that she said that she felt she was constantly being watched. They have also told me that she has lived with the fear of being harmed and her children being harmed. You notice that she is not part of the JFK community. She's at a time in her life when presumably she is retired and presumably has the time to be involved in JFK and Oswald Truth, but she isn't. Are fear and intimidation still weighing on her? Why aren't Oswald's daughters involved? Have they received direct threats? Or is it that their mother has beseeched them never to get involved?
