Excerpt from Page 46:
If his travel was temporary, what was he hoping to accomplish from the visit? The visit by the three men to Odio’s apartment is also strange in that on the surface, it suggests Oswald had been associating with both pro-Castro and anti-Castro elements. Was Oswald a double agent?
And there is also this: If Oswald was a gunman (lone or not) in Dealey Plaza, what organization—sovereign or otherwise—would have backed a plot to kill the president of the United States relying on an assassin firing from a top floor of an occupied building from which the only avenue of escape was the ground floor, and whose easily traceable rifle would have to be left behind? That does not add up except in the case of extreme incompetency on the part of his conspiratorial partners, especially when considering that Oswald’s co-plotters would have chosen to take on the risk of associating with a former Soviet defector whom one could reasonably assume was under close watch by US intelligence.
