Yes, that was just a bit too convenient. Also consider Jack Ruby's mob connections and his diagnosis of terminal cancer. Nothing to lose and a family to take care of.

From The House Committee on Assasinations:

"…Ruby's shooting of Oswald was not a spontaneous act, in that it involved at least some premeditation. Similarly, the committee believed it was less likely that Ruby entered the police basement without assistance, even though the assistance may have been provided with no knowledge of Ruby's intentions… The committee was troubled by the apparently unlocked doors along the stairway route and the removal of security guards from the area of the garage nearest the stairway shortly before the shooting… There is also evidence that the Dallas Police Department withheld relevant information from the Warren Commission concerning Ruby's entry to the scene of the Oswald transfer."

Nothing in the above is really too controversial or unexplainable.
However we can pretty much dismiss the final conclusions of 1978's "House Committee on Assasinations" since the final conclusion was entirely based on dictabelt audio information that has since, with improving technology since then, been disproven.

just listen to e. howard hunt's 'deathbed confession'. incidentally, such confessions, in general, are taken extremely seriously by law enforcement--but in specific, if government officials are involved, you'll never hear of such things. many of these are ABOVE THE LAW--Moderator cut: current Political remark removed ...

You jest of course, but, the ancient "Qui bono?" question does rather suggest LBJ was the one with the most to gain.

I can't say who shot JFK, but, the "official version" does not seem very likely to me.

I'd say it was mob hit men, possibly in cahoots with anti-Kennedy Cuban exiles. Bobby Kennedy had enraged too many mobsters and JFK got awfully close to the flame as well.

The CIA may well have known that a plot was afoot and deliberately turned a blind eye to it and let things happen.

Others, such as LBJ and Hoover, may have known about it, too.

Oswald may have fired his rifle but he was basically a diversion.

"In the hours after the Kennedy assassination, after Lee Harvey Oswald shot and killed Dallas Police Officer J.D. Tippit and was identified as the president’s assassin,a Secret Service officer named Mike Howard was dispatched to Oswald’s apartment. Howard found a little green address book, and on its 17th page under the heading “I WILL KILL” Oswald listed four men: an FBI agent named James Hosty; a right-wing general, Edwin Walker; and Vice President Richard Nixon. At the top of the list was the governor of Texas, John Connally. Through Connally’s name, Oswald had drawn a dagger, with blood drops dripping downward.

Special Agent Howard turned the address book over to the FBI and, ultimately, to the Warren Commission. Only some time later did he learn that the list with its hugely important insight into the killer’s motive had been torn out of the book."
