But WHO is doing all this? Who tried to transplant the encounter everyone acknowledges happening from where it happened anywhere else?
Who is "they" who went with the only remaining option?
But it doesn't allow for Oswald to be the sixth floor shooter. Who made up the part about Baker seeing Oswald through the window of the closed door? That's a fact that Truly said he was unaware of until days if not weeks later. Who made up the story of Baker seeing Oswald through the window of the closed door, but forgets to have Truly - ahead of Baker - seeing Oswald walk through the open door, as he would have had to if Oswald went through that door?
If the devil is in the details, they can run the time it takes to get from place to place all they want, it always comes out the same - minute and a half, but they can't have Oswald go through that door if Truly didn't see him and Baker did see him on the other side of that door - through the window - so Oswald, as Holmes points out, must have got into that vestibule - via the other second door. And yes, Holmes said first floor, but I don't believe he was repeating what Oswald told Fritz accurately, and both Baker and Truly, once they recreated their waltz - agreed it was the second floor, and Oswald confirmed their recollections and recreations of the incident, which exonerate him.
I believe Baker, he was a good, honest copper, and his detailed story rings true.
And if someone told Baker and Truly what the script was, who were they, who are you talking about? Who was pulling the cover up strings, because whoever they were, they screwed up.
1. Who? FBI, chiefly (though the Baker affidavit was surely a DPD-led gambit).
2. Please show me how Baker and Truly's WC testimony rules out the possibility that Oswald was the sixth floor shooter.
3. Which of Baker's detailed stories rings most true for you? His 11/22 story or his WC story?
Sean, thanks for responding in kind, as I'm not trying to be contrary.
I'm looking at FBI and DPD and wondering who in those orgs could have influence over this but can't put a finger on a name.
I don't see much difference in Baker's statement and testimony, other than the mention of the fourth floor encounter with someone, which he later said was a reference to the second floor lunchroom encounter.
Baker pretty much sticks to his story of seeing Oswald through the door window, and Truly did not see him,
therefore Oswald must have been on the other side of the closed door and did not go through it, as he would have had to if he was the Sixth Floor sniper.
As for the Second Floor encounter ruling out Oswald as Sixth Floor shooter:
Now none of this eleminates Oswald as Prayer Man, as that is a distinct possibility.
