THE TIPPIT MURDER IV
June 17, 2012
WHITEWASH-the report on the Warren Report by Harold Weisberg, Chapter 6: The Tippit Murder IV
Knoxville, Tennessee (JFKASSASSINATION) Today this blog concludes our report on Chapter 6 of Harold Weisberg's book "Whitewash--the report on the Warren Report", published in 1965.
The title of Chapter 6 is The Tippit Murder.
Harold Weisberg makes an interesting point:
"If Oswald had shot both (JFK) & Tippit, the one time he was really clear began within a minute or two of the 2nd shooting.
He was unseen for almost a half-hour.
When he had made his getaway, so far as he knew & the evidence shows, why should he have bottled himself up in the....theatre?
The answer of the Report is that he wanted to get caught.
Then why run?"
Mr. Weisberg concludes this chapter with an introduction to his ensuing chapters.
"The several chapters of the next section....will spotlight what happened to Oswald during the less than 2 days he was a police prisoner."
Harold reminds us that these 2 days would end with the death of Oswald in the basement of Dallas Police Headquarters & because of that, as we know, there would be no trial....no legal solution to the case...and so LEE HARVEY OSWALD "remains the lone suspect."
