Lee Harvey Oswald and the FBI

Lately I've been reviewing the record of Oswald and the FBI. I have this nagging feeling that the whole story has yet to be told.
Under the conspiracy/undercover agent scenario, there are a host of possibilites and theories to explain the actions of both Oswald and the FBI.
Under the guilty Oswald/true leftist scenario, we see a crescendo of anger building up on Oswald's part (the Quigley interview, the gun incident and FBI persecution comments in Mexico City, the two Hosty visits, the Hosty notation in Oswald's address book, the letter to the Soviet Embassy, the threatening letter dropped off at the Dallas field office, the Revill incident, and Oswald's reaction to Bookhout and Hosty while under arrest) and a cover-up by the FBI (the Hosty notation and the destruction of the letter).
Oswald seems to have become very angry at the FBI in a short space of time. Why? Could this have had any bearing on subsequent events?
The FBI's enormous risk in covering up the Hosty notation and the destruction of the letter does not seem commensurate with the story of a simple, non-threatening investigation of Oswald. Could the FBI have goaded Oswald? Could they have really caused him to lose jobs? Is there some other incident that has yet to be revealed?
