Synopsis

Of all the millions of words written in anger or certainty regarding arguably the greatest murder mystery of all time, the assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, one testimony remains glaringly absent. The deposition of Lee Harvey Oswald, the alleged assassin, was silenced by Jack Ruby's bullet before he could tell his story to a shocked and grieving world. The Two Faces of Lee Harvey Oswald is a unique work. No other book in the public domain concentrates on Lee Oswald's point of view; a young man caught up by, then hopelessly trapped in, history. From the moment of his return from the Soviet Union, Oswald became tangled in a web of intrigue, deception and murder. And yet, no amount of speculation or rumour mongering can lend history in general and Oswald in particular, his own words. "I'm just a patsy!" Oswald screamed, as he was led along a corridor in the Dallas Police Building, shortly after his arrest that fateful weekend. We will never truly know how innocent, or guilty, Oswald was. But his memory deserves a hearing. The most accurate hearing possible.

Glenn B Fleming was born and raised in Manchester, England. He is an author, designer, photographer, film maker, illustrator, cartoonist and has written many articles and published several magazines on varying subjects. His previous book on the JFK assassination was unique: written in a novel format, all from the view of alleged assassin Lee Harvey Oswald. S-172' looks at the story from the view that Oswald was an asset of the United States Intelligence community, a revelation dating from December 1963,only weeks after JFK was murdered. In 1976 it was revealed that the Central Intelligence Agency, after denying it for thirteen years, had, indeed, "discussed the laying on of interviews" and shown "intelligence interest" in Lee Oswald. In 1977, there were strong rumours of an Oswald 201 file. According to many former CIA employees, if the CIA has a 201 file on Oswald that would prove that he must have had some kind of intelligence connections with the agency. This statement became the basis of this work. The JFK assassination throws up more questions than answers at every turn; as eye witnesses to the assassination and surrounding events pass away, as time blurs the evidence and as the whole tragedy recedes further into history, it is vital those questions are answered today.
