Fleming's central claim, backed up by evidence from the likes of future president Gerald Ford, is that Oswald was an agent for one or more US Intelligence agencies. Seen in this light his already unclear role in the assassination of November 1963 becomes ever more murkier.
Was Oswald really an agent actually trying to prevent the crime of the century or a dim-witted patsy for sinister vested interests? His convenient cleansing two days after the dirty deed thanks to Jack Ruby's murderous intervention kick-started the world's greatest murder mystery industry, still a source of fascination half a century on.
In the photo section Fleming details over 40 characters linked to Oswald in one way or another, all with a vested interest, most of whom have suffered unfortunate and sudden deaths in the intervening 50 years.
The overwhelming evidence in this slim, readable volume points to a CIA plot but most of the guilty have long since been silenced.

And maybe these people are right. Then again, as author Glenn Fleming points out in the opening pages of S-172 Lee Harvey Oswald - Links To Intelligence Services there are still, to this day, 50,000 pages of US government documentation directly relating to the assassination of John F. Kennedy still classified, still withheld, from public scrutiny.
Fleming writes with a detached, no-nonsense informative and down to earth style, there are no raving histrionics here, just the facts. Just the hard facts to refute connections of Oswald in a US Marine intelligence unit; with Oswald’s defection to the then USSR, and his involvement with the KGB, Oswald’s association with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of the USA and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
Fleming’s detailed and painstaking research in S-172 Lee Harvey Oswald - Links To Intelligence Services is solid, cross-referenced and stands up to microscopic detail. The more each page gives up, the more the reader is drawn in and can only conclude Fleming’s premise, Lee Harvey Oswald was a known figure to both Cold War intelligence communities. And a likely source of information for both sides too. In fact, S-172 turns out to be the code number the FBI knew Lee Harvey Oswald by when that organisation paid Oswald $200 a month for helping them out. As Fleming points out in S-172 Lee Harvey Oswald - Links To Intelligence Services, it is interesting to learn that Oswald’s early 1960s tax records are still classified.
The conclusion of S-172 Lee Harvey Oswald - Links To Intelligence Services still asks the question on everyone’s lips, did Oswald act alone in the assassination of JFK? Are the connections author Glenn Fleming brings to light in these pages just a coincidence? Or, are the facts in S-172 Lee Harvey Oswald - Links To Intelligence Services, evidence.
