James Norwood Posted July 22, 2020 Author Share Posted July 22, 2020 Richard, You raise an important question about how much Ruth Paine knew about Oswald. Her Warren Commission comment implies that this man answered to the name of Harvey. It is not clear if she actually knew Lee personally. But she was clearly aware that the defection story was a ruse and that this man who lived briefly in her home and spoke flawless Russian was not the real Lee Harvey Oswald. There is evidence to suggest that she or an imposter was working behind the scenes to create a legend of Oswald prior to the assassination. She played a role in the circumstances of his employment at the Texas School Book Depository. And, most importantly, she was instrumental after the assassination in bringing forth incriminating posthumous evidence against Oswald. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
