Backes doesn't know the difference between a colon and a semi-colon. Amazing. They teach you that in middle school. 

And he’s so stupid and so bad at it he has a semi-colon after the word Look as if Look was a character’s name in this idiotic dialogue.
Look: it’s impossible to even imagine how the conversation could have gone if it involved telling Oswald about the plot. 
And yes, Backes: Oswald knew nothing about the assassination. He told police and FBI that he knew nothing about it, and he told the whole world that at the Midnight Press Conference.
But, I never said he had no ties to US intelligence organizations. Here is what John Armstrong said about the New Orleans leafletting incident: 
Look at the people involved with the Fair Play for Cuba
leafletting incident: 

** CIA agent William Gaudet watched Oswald through his office in the
     International Trade Mart

** The FBI photographed Oswald

** WDSU-TV filmed Oswald--cameraman Orvie Aucoin was an FBI informant

** Charles Hall Steel helped Oswald pass out leaflets--he was an FBI

** Oswald was arrested with three Cubans
     ** Miguel Cruz-FBI informant T-2
     ** Carlos Bringuier-FBI informant for Warren DeBreuys
     ** Celso Hernandes who was arrested with Lee Oswald on Breakwater
           Street in New Orleans by Officer Charles Noto in 1961

** When Oswald was taken to jail he requested to speak with an FBI
     agent. The agent was John Quigley who interviewed Oswald for 2

So yes, Oswald had intelligence connections, but what he did not have is knowledge of the JFK assassination. 
But, what is the evidence that Oswald posed as an anti-Castro agitator in the summer of '63?  
Oswald posed as both an anti-Castro agitator and a  pro-Castro agitator in New Orleans in the summer of 1963. 
I said: What is the evidence that Oswald ever posed as being anti-Castro? Everybody and his brother knows about his filmed pro-Castro leafletting, and we've all seen the film. Now, what is the corresponding evidence for his anti-Castro activity?  I know that the leafletting was a CIA stunt, but when did Oswald ever pose as an anti-Castro agitator? 
And I know that once arrested in New Orleans that he demanded to speak to an FBI agent and that Special Agent John Quigley went to see him. But, here is Quigley's testimony to the Warren Commission:
Find me what he said about Oswald revealing his ties to the FBI.  
It includes this: 
Mr. STERN. Is there any possibility that he was trying to give the New Orleans police the idea that he was working for or with the FBI?
Mr. QUIGLEY. Not to my knowledge, sir; no.
Mr. STERN. None of his conduct went in that direction?
Mr. QUIGLEY. No; he certainly, to my knowledge, never advised the New Orleans police of this. As a matter of fact, he, during the course of the interview with Lieutenant Martello, made a fiat statement that he would like to talk to an FBI agent, which is not an unusual situation. Frequently persons who are in custody of local authorities would like to talk to the FBI. 


So, what the Hell are you talking about, Backes? 

Then, the Idiot Backes says that the CIA had "operational" interest in Oswald. Ah, duh? They fabricated a whole trip to Mexico City for him, so I dare say they had operational interest in him. They not only had operational interest in him, they operations on him.
And I know what is said by John Newman, who, by the way, sent me a friend request on Facebook. He says that the leafletting stunt was entirely a CIA operation, and that the alleged trip to Mexico City was entirely a CIA operation. About whether Oswald actually went to Mexico City or not, he is on the fence about.  But, he is open to the possibility that Oswald never went there. He admits that there are no valid images of Oswald in Mexico City.
And, Oswald never made a call to a US Army Intelligence Agent from the Dallas Jail. He tried to make such a call. You would think that the call went through from what Backes wrote: 
I have never denied that Oswald knew people in the intelligence community. What I have denied is that he had any foreknowledge of the JFK assassination. How smart do you have to be to realize that if Oswald didn't even know why people were gathering on the sidewalk the morning of November 22, that he didn't know JFK would be driving by and to his death? Oswald asked James Jarman why people were gathering on the sidewalk. I'll say it again: Oswald asked James Jarman why people were gathering on the sidewalk. 
Backes references the date of the ceremony in which JFK dutifully pinned a medal on Dulles for his national service as the date of his firing. The fact is that the decision to fire Dulles was made in April. 
Within 72 hours all the invading troops had been killed, wounded or had surrendered. Richard Bissell had a meeting with John F. Kennedy about the Bay of Pigs operation. Kennedy admitted it was his fault that the operation had been a disaster and added, "In a parliamentary government, I'd have to resign. But in this government I can't, so you and Allen (Dulles) have to go."
So, the word was out within 72 hours that Dulles was getting his walking papers. David Talbot (for whom Backes isn't fit to scrape the mold from his shower) pegs April 1961 as the launch date of the assassination plot, and I agree with him.
Oswald had no knowledge of the plot to kill JFK. Jim Garrison said he had no knowledge of it, that he knew nothing about it. Oswald, himself, told the police and the world that he knew nothing about it. 
And what is Backes implying by this? 
For Cinque if Oswald knew anything about the planned assassination of JFK then that means the plotters themselves would be the ones telling Oswald 
Who else, Backes? How else would Oswald know? What are you suggesting? That Oswald figured it out without being told?  In that case, why didn't he try to stop it? In that case, he is guilty. If he just shrugged his shoulders knowing that JFK was going to be killed on November 22 and did nothing to stop it, then he might as well have pulled the trigger.  It amounts to the same thing. 
So, whether he was told by the those doing it or by anyone else who knew (and there isn't much difference between the two because if you knew about it, you were part of it) is immaterial and irrelevant because it simply didn't happen. Oswald didn't know. He did not know that John F. Kennedy was going to be blown away on November 22, 1963. Oswald never sent a telex about it. Oswald did not say it in the note he scratched to Hosty. There is no evidence that Oswald tried to inform anybody about the JFK assassination or that he knew it was going to happen.
Oswald had intelligence connections. That doesn't mean his intelligence connections told him anything about the JFK assassination. In fact, his intelligence connections may have tried to distract him with other things. OIC Chairman Larry Rivera thinks his intelligence connections may have told him about the concern about the gunrunning at the TSBD that was behind the facade of a book distributing business in which they were supposedly supporting the big enterprise through the sale of a few individual books, and the sales were apparently so few that they could afford to divert many of their "order-fillers" to floor-building for days at a time on end without causing any backlog. But, nobody but nobody tapped Oswald on the shoulder and said, "Guess what, Lee: We're killing Kennedy on the 22nd."
