Researcher John Armstrong, author of Harvey and Lee, the definitive book on Lee H. Oswald possibly being impersonated, has an updated section regarding the early years of Lee and Harvey. A fascinating and thought provoking read. Highly recommended.

|Allen Dulles, former Director of the CIA|
As told me by longtime JFK researcher Jones Harris, it was known around Washington that CIA Director allen Dulles had an interest in utilizing doubles for intelligence work. The first opportunity, the story went, came when Dulles was at a party and met a young man at a party that was fresh out of college and spoke fluently in both Russian and Chinese. Dulles reportedly learned that this young man also had a twin brother who was also fluent in both languages. Dulles is said to have remarked, “I must have this pair.”
If true, this is an interesting confirmation to bolster the doppelgänger theory which has been explored on this blog and by others, such as John Armstrong in his book, Harvey and Lee. It shows that Dulles knew more about the assassination than anymore else on the Commission and probably, as Jones Harris told me, knew the most about what really happened regarding the assassination of John Kennedy.
It it not unheard of for intelligence agencies to employ identical twins in operations. Fidel Castro did when he utilized the DeLaGuardia twins. The famous spy Mata Hari had a double that danced for her while she was doing espionage wok for the Germans during World War I. Hence, is it not unknown for intelligence agencies to use doubles. One man can be out on operations and if plans go unfavorably, then there is an alibi; just make sure the double is seen in a public place such as work, restaurant, a party, and so on. When it comes to “plausible deniability,” the CIA are experts at it.
Another indication occurred during the Warren Commission hearings when Lee’s older brother, Robert Oswald was giving testimony and when it came to the summer of 1947, Dulles abruptly broke in and called for a break. When the testimony continued, they picked up from the summer of 1948, which surprisingly, Robert Oswald went along with. Was he coached to go along with this ignoring of the timeline? Some researchers think so. Regardless, his older brother John Pic, in earlier testimony, stated the Oswald family was living in Fort Worth, Texas, when other evidence points to an Oswald residence in the town of Benbrook, which was 18 miles west of Fort Worth. Was Allen Dulles concerned about Robert mentioning the Forth Worth address as well? Is Dulles familiar with two Oswald’s being involved in intelligence operations?
This is murky area of the Kennedy assassination and deserves further research.

Over two hours of interview with Secret Service expert, Vince Palamara by Len Osanic. Highly recommended for students of this part of the case, or just anyone interested in actions of the Secret Service before, during, and after the association of John F. Kennedy.
