Oswald had prepared a handwritten renunciation of citizenship: Warren Commission Hearings, Vol. 18, p. 109; Warren Commission Exhibit 913. www.aarclibrary.org/publib/jfk/wc/wcvols/wh18/html/WH_Vol18_0062a.htm

Oswald had arrived at the American Embassy in Moscow at 11 am on a Saturday, about an hour before its weekend closing time at 12 am: John Newman, Oswald and the CIA, p. 1. www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/viewer/showDoc.do?docId=946&relPageId=772

For a renunciation to be official, all that was required was for the renunciation to be made in person and in front of a consular officer, reduced to writing, and four copies made.: Testimony of Richard Snyder, Warren Commission Hearings, Vol. 5, p. 273.

In the Petrulli case, Petrulli was allowed to renounce his citizenship...: Warren Report, p. 748
www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/viewer/showDoc.do?docId=946&relPageId=772

Curiously, Petrulli is cited in the body of the Warren Report, but not Webster: www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/viewer/showDoc.do?mode=searchResult&absPageId=74172

Here is the Evening Star article that contains Webster's full name: November 26, 1959, Washington Evening Star, Security File of Priscilla Johnson McMillan, HSCA Segregated CIA Collection, Box 43/NARA Record Number: 1993.08.13.18:14:26:210059, www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/viewer/showDoc.do?docId=103934&relPageId=43

Compare this Evening Star article to the manuscript provided at the Warren Commission Hearings, Vol. 20, Johnson Ex. 2, p. 288 www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/viewer/showDoc.do?docId=1137&relPageId=308

Oswald had been forewarned I would try to talk him out of decision: From Tokyo to Secretary of State, 11/27/63, Russ Holmes Work File, 104-10434-10370, Warren Commission Hearings, Vol. 18, p. 101, Exhibit 909. www.aarclibrary.org/publib/jfk/wc/wcvols/wh18/html/WH_Vol18_0058a.htm

Snyder repeatedly claimed there was a "problem of classification" until he convinced the Commission to go off the record: Testimony of Richard Snyder, Warren Commission Hearings, Vol. 5, p. 266. www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/viewer/showDoc.do?docId=40&relPageId=276

Keenan was a Harvard student at the time Snyder was a spotter for REDSKIN. Keenan was among the first students to study in the Soviet Union between 1959-1961 as part of the new Student Exchange Program coordinated by the State Department. Keenan was eventually declared persona non grata and forced to leave the Soviet Union during 1961. Keenan is now a historian of Russian history, and a past director of Harvard's Dumbarton Oaks museum and research center in Washington D.C.. He should contribute what he knows under oath: See Newman, pp. 1-2, 6; also see webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:Lo6Q3-_1cqoJ:en.academic.ru/dic.nsf/enwiki/8997789+dumbarton+%22edward+keenan%22&cd=7&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us&client=firefox-a

Like Russ Langelle, Keenan was eventually declared persona non grata and expelled from the Soviet Union: HSCA Segregated CIA Collection (microfilm, Reel 54); NARA Record Number: 104-10219-10202, Cable: Mr. Edward Louis Keenan, Student Recently Expelled From. www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/viewer/showDoc.do?docId=48643&relPageId=2
Also see Newman, pp. 87-88, 160.

When Snyder and his colleague Ed Freers prepared the short October 31 report on Oswald's visit to the State Department, with copies to the Navy and many other agencies, they included a reference to Oswald's U-2 experience without using the dreaded word "U-2". They wrote:

"(Oswald) says has offered Soviets any information he has acquired as enlisted radar operator. In view Petrulli case we propose delay executing renunciation until Soviet action known or dept. advises." www.aarclibrary.org/publib/jfk/wc/wcvols/wh18/html/WH_Vol18_0060a.htm

Here is the note from the Naval attache hiding Webster's name: www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/viewer/showDoc.do?docId=1135&relPageId=129
