Then went outside to watch P. parade
« on: May 14, 2020, 06:48:59 PM »
Oswald claimed:

1 - To have eaten his lunch on 1st floor
2 - Then went outside to watch P. parade
3 - Then went up to get coke (which is when Baker and Truly encountered him)

However, no one saw Oswald outside watching the parade. In theory, could Oswald have been suggesting he watched the parade through the second set of glass doors, thus not interacting with the people on the steps, and this is why no one saw him? There are no photos showing these second set of glass doors (i think), the nearest I could find was Bakers description on them as “glass doors”:

Mr. BAKER - Well, as you come up the steps, there is a glass door here in front of the building.
Mr. BELIN - Pardon me, this will be the recessed glass door right here swinging?
Mr. BAKER - All of this is the lobby.
Mr. BELIN - Yes, that is all the lobby.
Mr. BAKER - OK. This is the first door that you open to get in.
Mr. BELIN - Yes.
Mr. BAKER - And this is the lobby.
Mr. BELIN - Yes.
Mr. BAKER - And then you have another set of glass doors.
Mr. BELIN - There is another door right here, yes.
Mr. BAKER - And on through this one you have a swinging door, a little old counter-type door that swings--
Mr. BELIN - This would be the swinging door which would be to the west of the room marked " Mr. Truly's office" on Exhibit 362?
Mr. BAKER - That is right, sir.


Oswald could not have watch the parade from the front facade windows on the 1st floor because Eddie Piper was there and should have seen Oswald. However, in theory Oswald could have been suggesting he watched from inside the second set of glass doors, assuming they are glass doors as i don't think there is a photo of them. Is this what Oswald meant when he told Hosty "Then went outside to watch P. parade"?

We don't have Oswalds exact words though. Hosty might have taken Oswald up wrong.

Oswald might have said he looked outside, which Hosty might have taken up as Oswald actually being outside.

Two mights. Not great to build a theory on I'd say.

   The Front Door to the TSBD is Glass. Then, further inside the building, there is a counter with a short/swinging door. This short/swinging door is much like we sometimes see in a court room separating the spectators from the Lawyers, Jury, The Bench, etc. ANYTHING on the other side of those TSBD short/swinging doors is Irrelevant. NO One wanting to watch a parade going down Elm St would be physically positioned on the other side of the short/swinging doors.

"Then went outside to watch P. parade". If only we could work out what this incredibly complex sentence really means...

Maybe Mr Oswald used the verb "went" in the psychological sense of "had a daydream about going outside"... Maybe "outside" was used figuratively to mean "inside"... Maybe "watch" was commie-ironic for "not watch"... Maybe "P. parade" meant "Presley parade", an event put on by members of the local chapter of the national Elvis Fan Club... Maybe Hosty wrote these words because someone had slipped LSD in his coffee that day... Endless possible readings of these enigmatic words!

One thing is clear, however: Mr Oswald did not claim to have gone outside to watch the Presidential parade.

  I continue to believe Oswald was a Liar. What else would you expect from a guy that had a Phony I.D. on him when he was arrested?

Oswald was a liar and manipulator. He’d have been a wonderful GOP candidate for POTUS.

2 - Then went outside to watch P. parade
3 - Then went up to get coke (which is when Baker and Truly encountered him)

Sure, Oswald was a liar and maybe "in on it", but he didn't realize he was being set up as the pasty and never took a shot. The conspirators would never have relied on Oswald alone to do the job. Otherwise, how could Baker have encountered him calmly having a coke on the 1st floor after he had just shot the POTUS, wiped ALL the prints off his rifle, ditched it, then scrambled downstairs and bought a coke in <1.5 mins? Baker noted that he wasn't winded after flying down 5 flights of stairs. Was that possible if he was a lone nut assassin or was he a patsy that got double-crossed? Which is more likely and why?
