Albert Osborne AKA John Howard Bowen, for you newbies, is the gentleman sitting on the bus to Mexico City with "Oswald" or whomever was impersonating the unfortunate patsy on that particular day. Full details in Dick Russell's book.
Recalls what Peter Dale Scott said about William Gaudet, the CIA guy who showed up on a document as receiving a tourist card in New Orleans -- right after "Oswald" picked up a tourist card. Scott asked Gaudet (before his death) if he saw Oswald that day. Gaudet replied that no, he had not seen Oswald.
Scott later realized he should have asked who it was in front of him in line to receive the tourist card. Boy, I sure hope it wasn't anyone working for Guy Bannister or David Atlee Phillips. Wouldn't want to start thinking about a conspiracy or anything...

this file is incorrect regarding the buchanan brothers. Neither Jerry nor James "Jim" Buchanan worked for the Miami Herald as this file says. There was a Jim Buchanan - and my good friend who I worked with in South Dakota and later got me the job at the Miami Herald - but he was not Jerry's brother. That was another Jim Buchanan, who played off the reputation of the real Jim Buchanan. The Herald's Buchanan was a good solid reporter who was jailed in Cuba for two weeks at Christmas time. He also covered the Garrison investigation in to the JFK murder and thought Garrison was nuts. The two Buchanan Brothers were part of the crowd of mercenaries and would-be mercenies who flocked to south florida in the early 1960s. Both were "pseudo journalists" who worked at both the ft. lauderdale news [as it was known in those days] and hollywood sun-tattler. It caused all sorts of trouble for my friend, the real Jim Buchanan, because the other Jim Buchanan was going about the area claiming he worked for the Miami Herald and cashing checks that would bounce. don bohning
