Whatever-Your-Name-Is,

What footage were you referring to, then?

Don't care to say?

Don't remember?

The film your talking about, you do not see Oswald, correct?

[In t]he film you're talking about [Wiegman and Couch-Darnell], you do not see Oswald, correct?

You suggested there's "footage [which shows] Oswald was not where the WC narrative attempt[ed] to place him."

IIRC, the "WC narrative" attempted to place Oswald in the sixth floor sniper's nest at the time of the assassination, but you apparently do not believe that's where he was at the time.

The steps were filmed in Weigman at the time of  the first shot, and they were filmed in Couch-Darnell about 20 seconds after the final shot.  Both films show a person at the top of the steps whom many people believe is Oswald.

You don't, or you do?

What other film or photograph shows a (putative) Oswald in a place where he's not supposed to be, according to the Warren Commission Report?

(Do you mean on 11/22/63, or at any time in his life?)

I don't think he's on the step's, so why are you talking about it? Why do you think it's so important?

If you don't think Oswald was on the steps during Wiegman and Couch-Darnell "steps footage," where do you think he was?

In the Domino Room?

In the 2nd Floor Lunch Room?

In the Sniper's Nest?

It's not important??

.......

Why do you feel so important that you think you can make ambiguous "debate-winning" statements that you don't need to clarify for us as you walk away "in victory"?

E.g., "As opposed to footage showing Oswald was not where the WC narrative attempts to place him."

What footage are you referring to above, Whatever-Your-Name-Is?

Don't care to say, because other than possibly Prayer Person in Wiegman and Couch-Darnell, there isn't any (unless, of course, you're a devotee of the Harvey and Lee and ... Gasp ... Two Marguerites Cult), and you're talking about Cubi Point, or some-such place?

   What an ultra-sensitive paranoid!Sez U--- How's that for literary panache?

If you're not attempting to characterize me as an UFO nut, then tell us why you felt compelled to take my use of 'UFO' out-of-context and (for some strange reason) had a need to 'explain' UFO phenomena.

You ask where I thought Oswald was if I didn't think he was on the steps?

Answer: The world is a big place.  I know one thing, I did not see him on the steps I say that only if the photos were not altered. The point is I don't think he was on the steps, you don't think he was on the steps, others believe he was on the steps. If he was not on the steps it's not a game changer but you think it is by suggesting there was only one place for him to be, the SFW. There is not a human being in the SFW and there is not even a plant or animal in the SFW. I saw a cardboard box, did you think someone was in a box? Tell me, I promise not to laugh.

Tommy has a really hard time distinguishing between what he believes and what can be proven with evidence.  He thinks they are one and the same.

Iacoletti,

Some people (like you, for example, when you say that the three people on the Pergola Patio in Towner might be men, or that your "Glasses Woman" in Betzner-3 isn't really wearing glasses) are so biased that they can't see the evidence correctly.

Careful... you might be caught in the same mindset as John's other dogmatic cult belief system's use of 'when are you going to open your eyes?'*

And by "correctly", you mean in agreement with your unsubstantiated opinion.
