Inattentional 'blindness' might have been a factor if indeed Oswald was outside (but not noticed) as some here are arguing
The same kind of argument may be applied re inattentional deafness and the stairs

In any case:

Yes, just because no one remembered hearing him, doesn’t mean he wasn’t there.

One of the order fillers/workers Roy Lewis said this in "No More Silence."

"Sometimes if you were on one of the floors by yourself somebody would sneak up and you'd never know they were there.....They could walk down the stairway and a lot of times they'd be on you before you'd know it..."

What's the evidence that the steps made loud noises or were loud when you went up and down? I can understand multiple people making noise but Lewis's account says one person could go down quietly. And that's in a quiet time or atmosphere; there was lots of noise outside during the aftermath of the shooting.

"Sometimes if you were on one of the floors by yourself somebody would sneak up and you'd never know they were there.....They could walk down the stairway and a lot of times they'd be on you before you'd know it..."

That says very little. The TSBD is a big building and if you were on a floor by yourself but some distance away from the stairs in the back you probably wouldn't hear anybody coming up.

but Lewis's account says one person could go down quietly.

No it doesn't. That's just merely your incorrect conclusion

Too bad Dorothy Garner and some other women on the 4th floor did not see him passing by.

The "absence of evidence is not evidence" some contrarian philosopher once said.  We know someone was on the 6th floor.  Witnesses saw a rifle pointed out the window.  We know that person got off that floor without being noticed.  Therefore we know it was entirely possible for Oswald to have done so.

Months or even years are devoted to framing LHO for the assassination.

Strawman "Smith" strikes again.

Not necessarily within 75-90 seconds of the shots though.

Roy Truly’s same-day affidavit includes the correct floor and room. He was with Baker and knew the building well. But by all means, continue in your nutty fantasy Mr. Ford.

Mr Truly's same-day affidavit? Wow------show us!  Thumb1:

On the contrary, Mr Smith--------------he was noticed, by Officer Baker, who caught him "walking away from the stairway" a number of floors up the building



And, a little after this, he was noticed running out of the building



This latter sighting was the true source of the suspect description that went out
