Once, you've walked all of the square footage and examined all the angles, it's hard to believe Oswald (if he was even there) did it all alone.
The homeless folk will happily give you their versions as they sell you little kits of magazines and pictures about the whole thing. The wife bit for about 30 bucks worth of "Documentation".
Actually, the opposite can be true. Many years ago they closed off the entire area, sent a Lincoln convertible with three dummys in it down the same path and a Marine with the same Marksman's Badge that Oswald held put three slugs into the JFK dummy in the same time Oswald had (six seconds, I believe) to do it. It was broadcast in a CBS special. Once you see that, you, realize that Oswald (or someone else in the SBD Building at the same time Oswald was) being the lone assassin is true. My own belief is Oswald acted alone, mostly based on the fact that if he had been set up by someone using his own rifle, then why did Oswald only minutes later shoot a Dallas police officer?
Oswald himself is the real enigma. A CIA LSD baby? A KGB agent doing one for Cuba? A mobbed up nut case? We will probably never know.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
