I'm not convinced that Oswald was a communist in 1963.  He could have
been in league with militant anti-Castro people who could have been
disgruntled with Kennedy for not invading Cuba after the Bay of Pigs
Incident in 1961 or the Cuban Missle Crisis in 1962.  Yes, I do
realize that was the theory put forward by the movie JFK.

I see no harm in scepticism and I am willing to be swayed by
evidence.  I note that the movie JFK claimed that Oswald was no expert
marksman but, according to Oswald's wikipedia entry, in December of
1956 he was tested for the marine corps and qualified as a
sharpshooter.  So he was qualified, at least, to have been the
shooter.  That doesn't mean he acted alone, however.
