The identity of Alek Hidell has been something of a mystery to JFK assassination researchers, but we believe that we have linked Hidell to more than one person – the unwitting Lee Oswald and the very witting Ruth Paine.
Alek Hidell is the name on an identification card found in Lee Oswald’s wallet at the time of his arrest. One of his wallets was found at the Tippit murder scene with the Hidell identification, and another presented after his arrest in the Texas Theater after the CIA murdered the President and the Dallas Police supervised the murder of officer J D Tippit. We believe that the forged ID was planted on Oswald after his arrest.
Allek Hidell is also the name of the individual who ordered a weapon in March 1963 from Klein mail order located in Chicago . The weapon ordered from Klein was not a Mannlicher-Carcano as was claimed by the deceptive Warren Commission; but the fact that a rifle was ordered from Klein by Hidell was sufficient for framing Oswald.
The fabricated WCR story stated that Hidell ordered the weapon sent to Oswald's post office box; Hidell's identification was found on Oswald; a Carcano rifle was found on the 6th floor of the TSBD; Oswald was on the 6th floor; therefore Oswald murdered the president. The logic is childish, but then the Nazi perpetrators knew they were dealing with a simpleton public.
When asked by the Postal Inspector on 11/23/1963 about his post office boxes and Hidell, Oswald exasperatedly stated that he did not know about Hidell, a statement we believe because the Hidell identity was planted on him by Dallas police with CIA supervision. Hidell got around, as this ID showed up in other places as we will discuss momentarily.
We know from Jim Fetzer’s research that Chauncey Holt, chief accountant for mob boss Meyer Lansky, was also a gifted forger who used his talents to create the Hidell identification cards which were delivered to the CIA or Secret Service, along with other forged items, in a red pickup truck parked in Dealey Plaza’s parking lot on 11/22/1963. From there the cards were propagated to Oswald.
Another person found with the Hidell ID was Richard Case Nagel who, fearing being implicated as the patsy, managed to get himself arrested so that he could provide a rock solid alibi of being in jail when the assassination occurred. Nagel worked for the CIA.
The faked backyard photos of Oswald holding the Carcano were found in Ruth Paine’s garage, so we now have two suspects who may have ordered the rifle. Our suspicion is that Paine, or possibly her husband Michael, was the individual who ordered the Carcano and cooperated with the photo forgers to plant evidence in her garage implicating Oswald.
While CIA operative Nagel may have been the Hidell impersonator, we think the more likely explanation is that CIA operative Ruth Paine did the deed. Paine was the Oswald baby sitter who put up Marina in her home for a time and took her to and from New Orleans, playing the kindly neighbor with hidden venom. As a CIA operative, she could easily forge and hide evidence related to post office boxes.
Finally, we noted earlier that the strange package which Linnie Mae Randle mendaciously claimed Lee took to work on 11/22 – a package supposed to be large enough to be a rifle, possibly disassembled, was really the rifle her brother Buell Frazier got from Paine and which he smuggled to the TSBD to frame Oswald.
Thus, we conclude that the ordering of the rifle from Klein and delivery to Alek Hidell was the work of CIA operative Ruth Paine.
