Now, he said all that, and there is no doubt about it. The question is: do you believe Oswald? Because if you don't believe him; if you think he was lying, then how can you call yourself an Oswald defender?
Now, I realize that it is possible to pose for a photo with a rifle and not be the one who actually used it to kill somebody. But, the thing is that Oswald knew that too. Give him credit for being smart enough to say, "Yes, that's me, and that's my rifle, but I didn't shoot anyone with it."
So, if that was the case, Oswald surely would have said it. But, he said he did not order or own that or any other rifle and that that is NOT him in the photo.
You have to believe him. And if you don't believe him, then own up to what you really are: an Oswald accuser. And then: get the hell off my blog. I'm not interested in you. I don't care what you think. And I don't want your readership. If you think I'm crazy, why are you reading me? Why don't you go elsewhere and read people you respect? I won't be offended.
So, hopefully, there is no one left but real Oswald defenders.
So, if they were altering and falsifying photos BEFORE the JFK assassination, then surely they had the mindset to alter and falsify photos AFTER the JFK assassination.
Who altered the Altgens photo? I think it's very likely that the same team that concocted the Backyard photos altered the Altgens photo. Where was it altered? I think it was altered either at the Dallas Morning News where Altgens brought the photo or at Jaggars/Chiles/Stovall the CIA and US Military connected photo lab nearby in downtown Dallas.
Who specifically did it? I wouldn't be surprised that Dino Brugioni was involved. He was the CIA's top photo man. He wrote a book on photo fakery, which I have. And he provides examples from the Nazis, the Soviets, and even the American Civil War. He did not cite any modern examples by the US government or CIA.
How was it done? This is from an expert:
"When retouching was needed, typically an oversize print was made (at least twice the size needed for the final reproduction) and it would be airbrushed to perfection."
OK, so let's get to the definition of airbrushing:
The History of Airbrushing
"Ralph, thanks for your email. I can see where you are coming from with this. There was of course no Photoshop in 1963. But, I know hand negative and airbrush retouchers, and this level of manipulation, of which you are asserting, was certainly possible at that time. A good airbrush retoucher can rival with paint anything I can do with Photoshop."
Of course, I have his name, but I am not going to give it because I don't want him to be harassed.
I put up the picture of Kodah Retouching Fluid, and I'll put it up again:
