JFK conspiracy theory is debunked in Mexico 57 years after Kennedy assassination

Most conspiracy theories surrounding President John F. Kennedy’s assassination have been disproven. Kennedy was not killed by a gas-powered device triggered by aliens or by actor Woody Harrelson’s dad.

But speculation about Kennedy’s Nov. 22, 1963 murder in Dallas continues, fueled by unreleased classified documents, bizarre ballistics and the claim of assassin Lee Harvey Oswald – who was later killed on live TV while in police custody – that he was “just a patsy.”

Several JFK assassination experts, like the former New York Times investigative reporter Phillip Shenon, see Mexico as the best place to find answers regarding a possible conspiracy and who was behind it.

Just over a month before Kennedy’s killing, Oswald took a bus from Texas to Mexico City. He arrived Friday morning, Sept. 27, 1963 and left very early on Wednesday, Oct. 2, according to American and Mexican intelligence.

Was Oswald a kind of rogue James Bond who went south of the border to consort with communists, Cuban revolutionaries and spies – or just a deranged killer?

I dug into that question while researching my book on conspiracy narratives in Mexico, and I think I found something everybody else missed: a hole in the story of the very man who started a tenacious conspiracy theory about Oswald’s Mexico trip.

Mexico was a Cold War hot spot in the mid-20th century, a haven for Soviet exiles, American leftists fleeing the anti-communist persecution of McCarthyism and sympathizers with Cuba’s Castro regime. Every communist and democratic country had an embassy in Mexico City – the only place in the Western Hemisphere where these enemies coexisted more or less openly.

Oswald’s whereabouts for the next three-and-a-half days, however, remain unknown.

A main conspiracy about Oswald’s undocumented time in Mexico City puts him in contact with dangerous Mexicans on the left side of the Cold War.

This story originated in March 1967, when the American consul in the Mexican coastal city of Tampico, Benjamin Ruyle, was buying drinks for local journalists.

Things are getting desperate when they have to go after Mexico, which can barely organize a pinyata party.

Oswald was in Mexico for the planned visit to the Cuban Embassy.  The Cuban's turned his request to immigrate down.  Loved to had been a fly on the wall to see the expression of the staff when Oswald screamed...I will get Kennedy for this! 

:blink::wacko:

(as if Kennedy controlled whom the Cubans allow into THEIR country :wacko:)

If you read Gaeton Fonzi's book about the Senate Committee Investigation into Oswald in Mexico it becomes clear that the man who identified himself as Oswald was not Oswald.  The picture from a remote camera at the Embassy identified as Oswald was not him but a heavy set man.

Just hours after Oswald's arrest in Dallas, Atlee Phillips, the CIA man in Mexico City sent a recording of Oswald's inflammatory telephone conversation to the Russian Embassy in Mexico City to the Dallas Police and the FBI.

This actually was the subject of a phone call from J. Edgar Hoover to Lyndon Johnson later in the day of the assassination.   Hoover told Johnson of the recording being sent to Dallas from the CIA in Mexico City of a man identifying himself as Lee Harvey Oswald.  But there was a problem.  The FBI and the Police who listened to the recording of "Oswald" that afternoon in Dallas said that it sounded nothing like him and that the Russian that "Oswald" was speaking was pathetically inept.  The real Oswald was alive in custody and his voice was easily checked.   If he had been killed the deception may not have been discovered.

So, there was now a bigger problem.  What was the CIA doing with a recording and photographs of a man posing as Lee Harvey Oswald in Mexico City and why were they so quick to send it to Dallas just hours after the assassination.  

The penny must have dropped for Lyndon Johnson when Hoover told him this.  The CIA were involved in fabricating evidence against Oswald in advance of the assassination.

Atlee Phillips was seen with Oswald in Dallas some months before the assassination.  This was confirmed finally by the Cuban who was operating with Phillips just a few years ago.

The recording that was sent to the FBI in Dallas that was referenced in testimony by the Agents has never been found.  The original recording in Phillips' safe in Mexico City was purged.  He said that this was routine.

This has been debunked numerous times over the last several decades. It will have to be debunked

over the next several decades because the conspiracy nuts never give anything up, however idiotic.

And if Oswald's every minute in Mexico can't be accounted for, it must mean he was involved in some

international conspiracy involving the Cubans, the Russians, the CIA, anti-Castro Cubans, the Mafia,

LBJ, and the New York Yankees.
