1. What Was Lee Harvey Oswald Doing In Mexico City?
Despite being arguably the most infamous assassin in the 20th century, there is still a lot we don’t know about the machinations and motivations of Lee Harvey Oswald. One of these questions concerns his trip to Mexico City just weeks before the killing of the president. It could be argued that he was just on a little holiday before his life would change forever. However, the choice of Mexico City raises some troubling questions.
Why? Because in the 1960s, Mexico City was known as “the spy capital of the Western hemisphere.” We do know Oswald spent some of his time petitioning for a Soviet visa as he visited their embassy, but strangely, the CIA claimed the camera they had fixed on the building was malfunctioning on that specific day. Why is not suspicious at all, right?
What we do know from the CIA informers in Mexico city is that Oswald met with two young Americans at a party. To this day their identities have never been established and no one has ever come forward claiming to be either of the people who talked to the soon-to-be presidential assassin.
