Was Oswald in the doorway? Of course he was in the doorway. Why wouldn't he be outside watching the motorcade? The vast majority of the people who worked there did, so why shouldn't he? The number that didn't you could count on the fingers of one hand (assuming they came to work that day). One of them who didn't was Troy West, the shipping department; the whole shipping department. You recall how strange his testimony was, in which he told David Belin that he worked in another building, and Belin just ignored it and assumed he worked in that building in an open space on the first floor. That's where he wanted him to be working because that's where he needed him to be working. And remember that the first floor was the place that everyone who entered the building did so. It's also the place that everyone who left the building did so. So, the first floor was like Grand Central Station for the company. Yet, right there, out in the open on the first floor, Oswald supposedly took paper and tape and maybe even some string and made a bag, and a damn good one, and nobody noticed. And when they got to 12:30, Belin didn't even ask Troy why he wasn't out watching the motorcade. Isn't that strange in itself? And consider: Belin didn't even ask him IF he watched motorcade. Somehow Belin already knew that he didn't. He acted under the presumption that he didn't. He seemed to already know it.
But, getting back to Oswald, having lived in the Soviet Union, having a Soviet wife, and having lived through the Cuban Missile Crisis just a year before which almost resulted in war with the Soviet Union and would have - if not for John Kennedy, Oswald had more reason than most to want to lay eyes on John Kennedy. The idea that he would rather be off somewhere eating or drinking- or doing nothing- is preposterous. And it is an insult to him.
Captain Fritz actually told the WC that Oswald said he was eating with "other employees" at the time of the shots, and the esteemed commissioners had the audacity NOT to ask him who those employees were. Think about it: Oswald used other employees as his alibi, and they weren't interested??????????
Of course, that was a lie. Oswald did not use other employees as an alibi- at least not those employees. He used Bill Shelley as his alibi- who was his immediate supervisor. He said he was "out with Bill Shelley in front" and Fritz even wrote it down.
And the other thing that belies the lie that Fritz told is the fact that OSWALD NEVER ATE LUNCH WITH ANYBODY- not even on a good day. He was downright anti-social at that place. But, he wasn't always that way. When he was in Russia, he was like a different person. He was very social. He had a lot of friends there, both male and female. He was well-liked. And he talked to people. We get the impression that Oswald only talked to people at the Book Depository when he needed something from them. Take Frazier, for instance. He talked to Frazier when he needed a ride to Irving. Otherwise? He didn't talk to Frazier. Frazier has clarified that they NEVER did anything together other than those drives to Irving. They never ate together. They never went for a beer together. They never socialized in any other way either. And if Oswald hadn't needed those rides to Irving, it's likely that he would never have said a word to Frazier, unless he had a question about the work.
And speaking of "the work," that's a good segue. I have to wonder about it. Oswald was a smart guy. And he'd been around. He worked at Jaggars/Chiles/Stovall which had close ties to the US Military and US Intelligence Agencies. What did Oswald know about the real business of the Texas School Book Depository? Is the reason he was so anti-social because he knew the company was a lie, that the book-distributing was just a cover, that they were really up to other stuff?
Oswald said he was "out in front with Bill Shelley." Why'd he mention Shelley? Why not Frazier? Frazier was there. Why not Lovelady? Why not Joe Molina? Why not Carl Jones?
Shelley had long intelligence connections. Oswald had intelligence connections. So, did they know each other before October 1963? Had their paths crossed before?
Here is the final page of the Fritz Notes, page 5, which covered two interviews: one late on the 23rd, and one on the 24th shortly before Oswald was shot.
For the one on the 23rd, Fritz wrote down that Oswald denied it was him in the Backyard photo. He denied buying the rifle from Kleins. (And note that it wasn't a crime if he had, and if someone had stolen Oswald's gun and shot Kennedy with it, that would not have been a crime on Oswald's part either. So, he had no reason to lie about it.) And he complained about the way they conducted the lineup. But for that last interview on the 24th, Fritz wrote down no content at all. Absolutely nothing. He just recorded who was there. So, what was said? And why didn't Fritz write it down? Did Oswald start saying things that Fritz knew better than to write down?
Why no entries for that last session? Was it because Fritz knew that Oswald was going to be dead in a few minutes and nothing he said would he ever repeat, so why write it down? Was it because Oswald started spewing about his intelligence connections, and Fritz said "Uh-oh" to himself and put his pencil down?
