50 Years Since JFK Assassination Retrospective: Oswald's FBI Monitor Met With Army Intelligence Agent Prior To JFK Assassination

Coincidentally, the same Dallas FBI agent who visited the Paine-Oswald residence twice and made a pretext call to the personnel department of the Texas School Book Depository inquiring about Oswald a few weeks before JFK was ambushed, met with an Army intelligence agent just prior to JFK's assassination on November 22, 1963.

During FBI agent James Hosty's May 5, 1964 testimony before the Warren Commission, the following exchange took place between Warren Commission Assistant Counsel Samuel Stern and FBI agent Hosty:

MR. STERN: "What next occurred on the 22nd, Mr. Hosty?"

MR. HOSTY: "After the conference that lasted until about 9 a.m. I then left the office and joined an Army Intelligence agent...We had a conference...This conference lasted most of the morning until about 11:45. At 11:45 the Army Intelligence agent and myself left, and walked over towards Main Street. The motorcade was scheduled to pass down Main Street near our office at approximately noon..."
