The premise of this series is that Oswald had twelve people who built his legend. Many people still believe the legend about Oswald being "a loner". As this series shows, Oswald was many things, but a loner was not one of them. His ability to provoke people and work both sides of the political spectrum had the intelligence agencies viewing him as an asset.

Let's turn to a liberal couple that moved to the Dallas suburb of Irving in 1959 - during the same week that Oswald came to visit his mother in Irving before he left for the USSR. When Oswald came back to the area in 1962, the Paines were still there. It was like they had been waiting for him.

Michael Paine was legend maker #12 for Lee Oswald, while his wife Ruth Paine focused on taking care of Marina Oswald and the children. Like most of the legend makers, I think the Paines were manipulated as much as the Oswalds were. We have seen two CIA officers as legend makers - Richard Snyder and Anne Goodpasture - who I think had a pretty good idea of how they were being used to massage the Oswald legend. The Paines appear to be confused right up to 11/22/63.
Although the Paines appear to be government assets rather than agents, I suspect that they knew about the government's need to keep an eye on Oswald. They probably thought that they were helping out the CIA, the State Department, or Bob Odum at the local FBI office. I do not believe that they played any role in planning the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

^ Hi Dave,

My opinion is that absolutely nothing of value may be found in any of the claims attributed to James Files or Ed Hoffman.

With regard to "Price," are you referring to JC Price?

Seeing a lot of talk about the James Files confession, You Tube, hour long documentary showing on TV.

On the You Tube interview he is checking off all of  the boxes putting him behind the fence on the knoll.

I do see some collaboration between Hoffman, Files, and Price's stories.

Anyone have any comments, considerations, how to think about this.
