Here are a few more:

Worrell told the Commission that he made no such statement:

Mr. SPECTER. Mr. Worrell, we have a report of the Federal Bureau of Investigation which contains a purported interview with you, designated as report of Robert P. Gemberling dated November 30, 1963, which has this statement:
"He"--referring to you--" stated that last night when he saw photographs of Lee Harvey Oswald on television he felt this was the person he had seen running away from the building. He stated this person did not look back but he was certain this was a white person since he had a profile view." My question, first of all, to you: Did you have a profile view of the man who ran away from the building that you described?

Mr. WORRELL No, sir.

Mr. SPECTER. The second question is, did you tell the FBI that you had a profile view?

Mr. WORRELL.No sir, I sure didn't .

Mr. SPECTER. Did you tell the FBI agent who interviewed you, that you felt that this person was Lee Harvey Oswald?

Mr. WORRELL. I don't know if I did or not.

( 2 H 201 )

These are just two examples of how through omission and addition, the official "history" of this event has been slanted.

This was the typical FBI approach to the evidence: if it wasn't Oswald, they didn't want to know about it.


James Worrell

James Worrell was a 20 year old man who stood out in front of the Texas School Book Depository at the corner of Houston and Elm to watch the motorcade pass by. During the shooting sequence, he got scared and ran. He claimed to have seen a man run out the rear of the building but did not see his face.

But the FBI report of his interview claimed that he had a profile view of the man and identified him as Oswald.

Commission Exhibit 358 is Arnold Rowland's statement to the FBI.


In 1966, author and attorney Mark Lane ( Rush to Judgment, Plausible Denial, Last Word ) interviewed witnesses to the assassination who had not been called to testify before the Warren Commission. In those interviews, the witnesses described to Lane what they saw and told him that they told the exact same thing to the authorities who questioned them immediately after the assassination.

But the FBI record, told in reports and Warren Commission Exhibits and documents, tell a different story, one in which the witnesses never saw anything.

Through omissions and additions, there were other examples of witness accounts that were not accurately reported by the FBI.

Arnold Rowland

Mr. SPECTER. Now, at the time you made the Saturday statement, which you say was transcribed and appears as Exhibit 358, did you at that time tell the interviewing FBI agents about the colored gentleman who you testified was in the window which you marked with an "A"?

Mr. ROWLAND. Yes; I did.

Mr. SPECTER. Did you ask them at that time to include the information in the statement which they took from you?

Mr. ROWLAND. No. I think I told them about it after the statement, as an afterthought, an afterthought came up, it came into my mind. I also told the agents that took a statement from me on Sunday. They didn't seem very interested, so I just forgot about it for a while.

Mr. SPECTER. Was that information included in the written portion of the statement which was taken from you on Sunday?

Mr. ROWLAND. No, it wasn't. It shouldn't but the agent deleted it though himself, I mean I included it in what I gave.

Mr. SPECTER. When you say deleted it, did he strike it out after putting it in, or did he omit it in the transcription?

Mr. ROWLAND. Omitted it.

The FBI never reported that Rowland saw a "colored gentleman" through one of the sixth floor windows before the shooting.
