In the photos, Oswald is shown holding the rifle and radical newspapers. Another problem is the papers themselves. Before 1960, communism had split into two factions; one was revolutionary and the other sought peaceful co-existence with the capitalist/imperialist world. The two publications that Oswald held up, and , . Oswald lived in the Soviet Union and was well aware of the split, and Soviet communism had embraced the peaceful co-existence approach. Trying to make a reputation as a militant by holding up those publications would be like holding up to help establish one's reputation as a right-wing radical. Nearly all of the evidence presented by the Warren Commission and others to portray Oswald as some kind of communist fail pretty spectacularly. Oswald was a Marine with a security clearance, who worked on the Japanese base where the U-2 missions originated. After his discharge from the Marines in 1959, he walked into the American embassy in Moscow to renounce his citizenship and announce his intention to become a Soviet citizen. He also announced that he planned to tell the Soviets everything that he knew from his Marine Corps days. The next year, while Oswald lived in the Soviet Union, as almost , a . The that Oswald may have been involved with his plane being shot down, and Oswald attended the pilot's initial interrogation. Like so many JFK-related witnesses, that pilot died the week before he was to testify before the House Select Committee on Assassinations ("HSCA") about those events, when his helicopter ran out of fuel , which is a method of murder that Gary Wean regularly encountered in Ventura County. That is quite a "coincidence." CIA documents showed that the . There is a vast amount of information that points to Oswald being anything other than a rogue commie Marine who somehow moved around the spook world with ease and was trained and befriended by all manner of spook and CIA asset in the years leading up to JFK's assassination. During 2014, the saga has been playing, with him in political asylum in Russia and who would instantly land in an American prison if he ever came home. At the height of the Cold War, a Marine with a security clearance moved to the Soviet Union while announcing his intentions to give the Soviets his secrets in what is arguably the greatest Marine defection ever. The next year, the plane that he worked with was downed over the Soviet Union, which became a huge international incident. Two years later, the defector decided to come back to the USA and was welcomed with open arms. It greatly stretches the imagination to think that he would be treated that way if he was a genuine defector.

The shadow issue is highly contested. Oswald has a shadow below his nose, and his eyes are completely in shadow. It appears as if the Sun is at a 45-degree angle to the ground. I arrived at that approximate angle by noting that the shadow’s length under his nose is about equal to the distance his nose protrudes from his face. That is only an approximation and does not need to be more accurate for the point I am about to make.

The HSCA investigation applied plenty of professional aptitude to the backyard photos, and McCamy made the case that the Sun was coming in at such a high angle, that the bottom of Oswald's pointy chin was in shadow, which created the illusion that Oswald had a square chin. If one looks at the photo, McCamy's rationale uses strained logic, which the HSCA itself found difficult to swallow, but the point is taken that the sunlight is coming from a steep angle. Oswald is holding the newspapers against his chest at a nearly perpendicular angle; his right hand with the chopped-off fingers is holding the paper. There is something even stranger than the ends of the fingers missing. The nose’s shadow is about the equivalent of how far it protrudes. Using the same logic, his index finger should cast a shadow on the newspaper it is holding, roughly equal to the height of the finger above the paper. Take a good look at the shadow cast by his right index finger.
