.... do you believe in UFOs...?
A case and point in the repetitive use of articulation. It sounds like a religion...Do you believe? Oh yes I saw the light! Balloons, swamp gas, atmospheric reflections, meteors and actual earth made aircraft make up 99.99% of airborne objects that cannot be identified because of their peculiar manifestation yet the term UFO is automatically associated with an alien flying saucer.

As opposed to footage showing Oswald was not where the WC narrative attempts to place him. That is why LNers say seeing is denying. They have an excuse for everything but then again, they know very little about the case. Their mentors are not very good with film- viewing it, altering it, preserving it, and this is all related to lazy incompetent idiots. I am sure you agree. Don't worry I won't tell the others

Where did the WC 'attempt' to place Oswald; and show us the footage.

You took my UFO reference out-of-context in order to make me seem a UFO nut.
You're just not good at this..

And if you're going to use idioms, at least get them right:
It's not 'a case and point'... it's 'a case in point'

And at least credit wiki in your little attempt to appear educated.
If you were an LN, John would charge you with plagiarism

What "little attempt" are you referring to here?

He's referring to the Wiegman and Darnell footage  which he believes shows Oswald standing on the TSBD steps during and shortly after the assassination.

Was I referring to the Weigman and ........?

Answer: No, you are wrong. Thomas, are you feeling ok?

Does Thomas have an empty oxygen tank?

Answer: Unfortunately Yes, and I shouldn't have to remind you.

[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?
