There are some people on McAdams' forum who claim that Oswald referred to being in the domino room eating and then seeing, through the window, James Jarman and Harold Norman outside on Houston Street, and he referenced them. I have said all along that that is ridiculous, that he would never have referenced people outside to establish his presence inside.  But now, I have found this from James Bookhout's report. 

"Oswald stated that on November 22, 1963, he had eaten lunch in the lunch room at the Texas School Book Depository, alone, but recalled possibly two Negro employees walking through the room during this period. He stated possibly one of these employees was called ‘Junior’ and the other was a short individual whose name he could not recall but whom he would be able to recognize."

Now, that's it. That's what happened. That is all there was to it. Oswald never said that he ate with anybody. And he certainly wasn't referencing anyone outside to establish where he was inside. And his lunch-eating was not an alibi for the assassination because it was well before the assassination. His alibi for the assassination was that he was "out with Bill Shelley in front." None of the reports and testimonies contain that statement and for the obvious reason. However, the joint report by Hosty and Bookhout contains the vague statement that Oswald said he was on the first floor during the shooting. Well, the doorway was on the first floor, and the first floor was not at ground level. So, they kind-of told the truth but left out that he had stepped out the door.

"Out with Bill Sheley in front" is where Oswald said he was during the assassination, and he said it because that is where he was during the assassination. He wasn't lying. He had no reason to lie. And no fact about the JFK assassination has greater importance than this.
