Proof 4 - The Book Depository Job


Oswald got the job at the Texas School Book Depository on October 15, before the site of JFK's Dallas talk and thus the route of his motorcade had been determined. He obtained the job through a women's coffee klatch; a Quaker woman named Ruth Paine made the inquiries to manager Roy Truly of the TSBD. Thus supposed conspirators did not place Oswald in a position to shoot at JFK - he just happened to be at the right place at the right time.


Quaker woman, huh?
