From “NoduleX23” by A.J. Weberman: "Oswald brought the disassembled Manlicher-Carcano with him to the Texas School Book Depository on the morning of November 22, 1963, because he had been instructed to do so. Hemming had fired the weapon on the weekend before the assassination, and told Oswald that he liked it a lot and would purchase it for [sic] him on [sic] next Friday. HEMMING: Just offer him double the value of his gun. It wouldn't make anyone nervous. A crime like this hadn't occurred since McKinley, it wouldn't have been uppermost in his mind about the president or any other kind of bullxxxx. Oswald entered the Texas School Book Depository carrying the package, and went up to the sixth floor. He hid the package between some book cartons. Hemming had assured Oswald it was to be picked up. Oswald was told to go to the lunchroom between 12:15 pm and 12:45 pm so he would not see the person who picked up the rifle. HEMMING: I would presume he was in the lunchroom. Maybe he was waiting to meet somebody there? Would these people anticipate pictures being taken? What if it was Oswald in the doorway of the Texas School Book Depository and not Lovelady?" Comments anyone? Was A.J. Weberman telling the truth here or was he, perhaps, intentionally libeling Hemming, trying to get Hemming to sue him so that some assassination-related documents would be released (or so Weberman thought)? --Tommy
