This story is an extremely interesting one especially for any of our conspiracy theorist out there. As many of you know the basic wisdom is that Lee Harvey Oswald shot John F. Kennedy in Dallas. But there have been a vast amount of books and movies that have claimed that it was a conspiracy and that really and the murders were CIA, the FBI, Lyndon Johnson, Cuba, the KGB and a lot of other possible suspects. One thing that we can point to though is that Lee Harvey Oswald was certainly in Mexico for short amount of time before the assassination of Kennedy. Many people believe that he was trying to get a visa to travel to Cuba where he planned to defect and he wanted to join the queue was great revolution. Other people say that the man who did go into the Cuban embassy was not Harvey Oswald but a different man. Some say that the CIA was watching the Cuban embassy in Mexico City and was taking pictures of everyone that came in and now and somehow they missed Lee Harvey Oswald. Initially they produce pictures that showed another man and said it was Lee Harvey Oswald when you can clearly look at the picture and see as a completely different man with a different build.
Come to find out that the CIA had him under surveillance after he showed up at the Cuban and Soviet embassies. And also seems a later after the Kennedy assassination the US ambassador to Mexico was ordered by the director of the CIA, Dean Rusk to shut down any investigation that they had going in Mexico that might confirm rumors of a Cuban involvement in Kennedy’s assassination. When the ambassador asked for a reason no reason was given.
There were many members of the American administration and government that believed that Oswald was in fact an agent for a foreign power who may have been part of the conspiracy to kill Kennedy. It is still unknown what happened to Mexico City in those weeks before JFK’s murder. It is clear though that Oswald six-day trip to Mexico was never truly investigated by the CIA, the State Department or the FBI and as a result was not investigated by the Warren commission either.
One has to wonder what kind of secrets may turn up in the future about Oswald’s Mexico trip that could shed more light on what truly happened during the assassination of JFK. And how will Obama’s recent warming to Cuba and normalizing of relationship will affect this. Will future government administrations downplay any historical link between Cuba and the assassination of JFK so that they can move forward with the Cuban-American relationship?
