I suggest that the Warren Commission fabrication that Lee Harvey Oswald was: (1) a loner; and (2) a Communist, was carefully crafted to hide the facts showing the exact opposite, namely, that Oswald was: (1) very socially connected; and (2) an Anticommunist.
That is, Lee Harvey Oswald was very socially connected to Anticommunists during 1963, when he became the patsy of the JFK conspiracy.
In other words, this was no error on the part of the Warren Commission -- it was a deliberate deception. The Commission knew very well who Oswald's accomplices were -- and that is precisely why they went to so much trouble to hide their identities. (That is, Oswald's accomplices were the extreme Anticommunists in Dallas, whose propaganda was that JFK was a communist, a traitor, and deserved to die.)
I also suggest that most adults in Dallas knew who was behind the JFK assassination. Before Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested and made into a media circus, a majority of reporters and citizens thought of General Edwin A. Walker and his favorite organization, the John Birch Society (JBS), as key suspects.
1. It was well-known in Dallas that Walker and the JBS had organized the attack on Adlai Stevenson only one month before the JFK assassination.
2. It was well-known in Dallas that Walker and the JBS had published the "WANTED FOR TREASON: JFK" handbill, first on 24 October 1963 when Adlai Stevenson came to Dallas, and again on 22 November 1963 when JFK came to Dallas.
3. It was well-known in Dallas that Walker and the JBS had published the black-bordered ad (WELCOME MR. KENNEDY; WHY ARE YOU A COMMUNIST?) in the Dallas Morning News
on 22 November 1963.
In the minutes before Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested as the patsy for the JFK assassination, Bernard Weissman, a writer for the JBS in Dallas thought that Walker and his circle were guilty, and that he himself had been made the patsy by signing his name to the black-bordered ad for all to see.
During the Warren Commission Hearings, when Earl Warren himself questioned Jack Ruby in a Dallas jail cell. Here is an excerpt from that testimony:

Mr. RUBY. ...All right. There is a certain organization here, Chief Justice Warren, if it takes my life at this moment to say it – and Bill Decker said be a man and say it – there is a John Birch Society
right now in activity, and Edwin Walker
is one of the top men of this organization – take it for what it is worth, Chief Justice Warren…
Chief Justice WARREN. (silence)
Mr. RUBY. ...Don’t register with you, does it?
Chief Justice WARREN. No; I don’t understand that.
Mr. RUBY. Would you rather I just delete what I said and just pretend that nothing is going on?
Chief Justice WARREN. I would not indeed. I am only interested in what you want to tell this Commission. That is all I am interested in.

But actually, Ruby never returned to the topic, and was never asked about it again by the Warren Commission. If Justice Warren had been earnest when he told Ruby that he was "only interested in what you want to tell this Commission," then IMHO he should have listened more carefully to what Ruby had actually
told the Commission.
I repeat -- until Lee Harvey Oswald was tossed into the media frenzy, the most viable suspect in the Dallas slaying of JFK was surely ex-General Edwin A. Walker and the JBS.
If a JFK researcher has come to doubt that Lee Harvey Oswald was truly the main suspect, then it seems logical that the proper place to begin seeking new suspects should be in Dallas -- minutes before Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested. What was the buzz in the news?
