In the CBS broadcast which came out just hours before the Warren Report was released, Ruth Paine said that she didn't know about his rifle being stored in her garage, and she would not have allowed it if she knew about it.
But, she transported that rifle back to Dallas from New Orleans. It wasn't just in her house; it was in her station wagon. So, Oswald, himself, put it in there without her knowing it? But, he had to assume she wouldn't allow it, right? Because, if he thought she would, then he would have done it openly and just told her, "I'm sending this rifle back with you."
OK, so Oswald snuck his rifle in her car. But, what did he expect to happen when they got to Dallas? Did he have a pact with Marina?
"You be sure to unload the rifle when Ruth isn't looking. Then store it somewhere in her garage where she won't see it."
But wait a second: First, that has never been reported, and no one has no right to assume it. You can only follow the evidence; you can't make it up. Second, Ruth was doing Marina an awfully big favor by letting her live with her and essentially supporting her. Oswald never gave the Paines any money. So, why would Marina, who was surely a grateful person, agree to play such a trick on her friend? And in a letter, Marina described Ruth Paine as her best friend.
So, we can't assume that Oswald got his wife to do this. Therefore, I ask again: what did he expect to happen when they reached the house? How did he expect to get away with it? How did he expect it to go down?
And according to Marina, the rifle was stored out in the open in the garage. It was in plain sight. Therefore, how is it possible for Ruth Paine never to have seen it, o'er those several months?
Then, Ruth Paine went on to say something that was very telling. She said that Oswald wasn't a very social person, and he didn't try to make friends with people. I think that's been confirmed. But, she said that the one human being to whom he really felt close and connected to and to whom he really tried to communicate was his wife. She said that she had no doubt that he loved her, Marina.
And that's my impression too, that he really lived for Marina and his kids, and they meant everything to him. He wasn't close with his so-called brother nor with his so-called mother, and he really didn't have any friends. All of his "person", meaning his ability to be personable with someone, went to Marina and his kids.
So, that takes me back to November 20 or whenever when he supposedly had finished eating lunch at the TSBD and was using up the rest of the lunch break reading the newspaper. And he gets to the announcement about the President's visit and motorcade, and he sees the motorcade route, and he instantly decides, "I'm going to kill the President."
How was that going to get him closer with his wife? It was time in which he was trying to reunite his family. How was killing Kennedy going to help with that? For his mind to go there at all, he would have had to be completely insane. I mean criminally, psychopathicly insane, and as much so any psychopath you can name. So, how could he have this very "human" desire to be close with his wife and united with her and his children, and yet get such a monstrous urge to kill? Oswald wasn't the most friendly and social guy in the world, but he seemed to be very normal in his priorities. His wife and his kids were his priority- and to a very, very, very high degree. It's just not consistent with a guy would wantonly kill the President. And then what? Even if he thought he could get away with it, he had to know that he'd have to flee. So, even got away with it, the cost would be: everything he held dear.
So, why would he do it? He wouldn't. The whole story is complete abject fiction. And how they got Marina to say the things she did, I just don't know.
