Oswald either didn't do or didn't act alone in J.F.K's assassination
Debate Rounds (3)
Officially, it was accepted that Oswald fired three shots from the window of the Texas Book Depository and had no accomplices. The commission didn"t nail down a specific motive, but said, "He was perpetually discontented with the world around him. Long before the assassination he expressed his hatred for American society and acted in protest against it."
Yet despite the commission"s findings, many still question the events of November 22, 1963 and what really happened at Dealey Plaza in Dallas. In 1979 a House Select Committee concluded that JFK's assassination was likely the work of a conspiracy, for example. Conspiracy theories abound, alleging either that Oswald was part of a larger organization working to take out the president or was, to use his term, a "patsy." One theory also alleges that Oswald was trying to kill someone else that day " Texas Gov. John Connally rather than Kennedy.
John Kelin, author of a book on the JFK assassination, said that independent analysis of the facts surrounding that day on Dealey Plaza clearly show there was a conspiracy. He provides a host of popular theories:
In its report, the Warren Commission " tasked by President Lyndon Johnson with investigating the assassination " placed a gunman on the sixth floor of a building along JFK's motorcade route through Dallas. Such a gunman would have been behind the presidential limousine when the shots were fired. Yet of the 121 Dealey Plaza witnesses whose statements appear in the commission's published evidence, 51, by one count, said gunshots came from the right front " that is, from the infamous grassy knoll. Only 32 thought shots came from the building, while 38 had no opinion.
There is much more than this, of course: Dealey Plaza witnesses who saw unidentified armed men in the vicinity; witnesses whose observations suggest a radio-coordinated hit team; three Dallas cops who encountered fake Secret Service agents; and one who testified to meeting an hysterical woman screaming, "They're shooting the president from the bushes!"

Back on topic
According to paragraph 9 in the "A Product of His Life" Section it clearly states "The question now is whether the report will satisfy those, especially abroad, who have insisted that there must have been a conspiracy in the assassination. The commission attempted to answer, specifically, every such theory and rumor." (http://www.nytimes.com...) in which disproves the the commission tried to answer theories of the people, but they cant. Proving that Oswald acted alone.
