Witnesses answer the question as to whether or not Jack Ruby and Lee Harvey Oswald knew each other.

Oliver Stone had "Jack Ruby," standing on a table in the back of the press contingent as Oswald answered questions in JFK. If this scene is true and Ruby yelled out "Fair Play for Cuba," then Ruby had to have known Oswald. Also there was this smirk of recognition between Ruby and Oswald in the police station basement right before Ruby shot Oswald. It's safe to say that Oswald wasn't expecting Ruby to kill him. At least not in my opinion.

I would agree with your opinion, Kathleen. Oswald wasn't expecting it, or else he would have at least hesitated walking, if not stopped totally in his tracks. In Bob Groden's book, "The Search for Lee Harvey Oswald", there are several photos of Ruby in the DPD building that were captured from news video taken on the evening of the 22nd. A few show Ruby in the hallway and another is the famous one of Ruby in the back of the room during Henry Wade's press conference.

He was definitely stalking Oswald all weekend long.

Keep in mind that Oswald's "work" with the Fair Play for Cuba Committee was done ONLY during his time in New Orleans. There was also a Free Cuba Committee, an anti-Castro group at the time. The only way Ruby could have known which group Oswald belonged to , was if he had known him personally and was aware of his activities in New Orleans.

Otherwise, he would have had no idea to which group Oswald was a member.

The truth is, Ruby WAS at Oswald's impromptu press conference at DPD HQ, and Ruby DID correct DA Henry Wade when Wade tried to associate Oswald with the Free Cuba movement...in one of the points of the movie that remained true to the facts.

I can't believe that you want to be seen as a serious researcher on the JFK assassination, but you know more about the Oliver Stone movie than the actual story. Without a knowledge of the essential elements of the case--the foundation, as it were--it's extremely difficult to build much more than a house of cards.
