Oswald was wearing a rather unusual shirt that day that made him discernible in a private video of the assassination. He was standing just inside the entrance of the Texas School Book Deposiory watching the motorcade pass, a long, long way from that 6th floor window. But Oswald knew Kennedy was in danger from his inside information he had gotten while in Mexico. He and Jack Ruby knew each other from mob contacts, and he was able to help JFK avert one assassination planned for Chicago just a few weeks earlier. Lee died an unsung hero and Johnson went on to become President.
