I Am the Puppet Master –   

“It is difficult to be the victim of injustice, and not become obsessed by it. As someone else has observed of this tragedy, it is important that we resist the changes imposed on us by the world, by responding instead to the truth that is within us.

“For those of us who have had the luck to survive in this struggle while others have died, some of them murdered, our response must be to carry on.”  (Peter Dale Scott, in memorial on assassinated journalist Gary Webb.)

As a result of his demands by constant FOIA (Freedom of Information requests) and other citizen actions, Peter Dale Scott (long-time author into political controversy) has discovered multiple government documents, some highly redacted and blacked-out, that appear to be raw material and, hopefully, clues to the possibility that the accused assassin in the murder of John F. Kennedy – Lee Harvey Oswald – was “manipulated” – and in many instances – “invented.”

“In any case, readers should not expect these essays to lead us to a full understanding of the Kennedy case,” says Scott in the book’s Introduction. “Rather they lead towards key anomalies of resistance, suppression, and above all falsification of major documents. Just as the mapping of geophysical anomalies can aid in the search for petroleum, so, the mapping of these documentary anomalies can aid us, and hopefully the Review Board, in isolating cover-up of America.”

(What also would lend to a better “understanding” in the book would be an improved explanation of the many “inferences” [though often possibly interesting and even logical] that are ‘still’ not clear (due, in part, to Scott’s somewhat stilted rhetoric), and ‘should’ have finally ended-up as hard, cold evidence that would be seen and read as final proof of some of his claims, but this finality doesn’t seem to ultimately take place.)

The early part of the book deals with an alleged Oswald/Kostikov conversation on October 1, 1963, where a mysterious but only ‘inferred’ “Oswald” spoke of having contacted a KGB agent called Valeriy Kostikov.


Scott mentions that several of these “Oswald leaks” were not the real Oswald, but “someone else impersonating him.”   This involved several calls, comments, and “gossip” portraying Oswald as the originator.   Scott believes that several Oswald “impersonators” laced the scenery with “traces,” “clues,” as part of a “deception program” done through phased or planned “high-level CIA cable traffic.” (p. 4)

From the Movie “The Body Snatchers”: Investigating the Replication of Human Bodies. 

It would seem that Oswald had been “fazed” into several ‘stages’ of “mentions” that were “organized some years earlier in a possibly unrelated operation.”  Oswald’s association with a KGB assassin was utilized as to ward off “threatening nuclear war,” and later switched Oswald to a “lone nut” angle or slant. Scott believes that most of these manipulations were the workings of the Counterintelligence Special Investigation Group in the CIA as well as Special Intelligence in the CIA’s station in Mexico City.


Through documents such as the Lopez Report, it would appear that someone (and very poorly executed, at times, in doing such maneuvering) was trying to impersonate Oswald in Mexico. Rumors to further this image had been passed along through Oleg M. Nechiporenko and General Nikolai Leonov, as well as eyewitnesses such as Silvia Duran of the Cuban Embassy. Scott seems to have found multiple discrepancies all through the documents.

“It is far more likely that these cables were sent as part of a CIA deception operation,” says Scott, “and that this deception operation went back at least three years, to the time of Oswald’s alleged defection to the Soviet Union.”

Scott earmarks various “stages” that barely become visible in the trail of Oswald: Phase one, phase two. He refers to these as “dialectical cover-ups.”

Phase One would suggest that Oswald was disguised as part of a Soviet or Cuban conspiracy; and then later, a Phase Two in which Oswald was not a KGB assassin but an alleged “lone killer.” To make matters even more problematic, Scott tells of a rift between the Counter Intelligence (CI) in the CIA and the FBI’s Counter-Espionage as to how the “phase” program was to be implemented.

“It appears there may have been a clique within the government who cooperated with outside elements to kill the President,” says Scott, “and that this clique included elements in counterintelligence…in such a way as to activate a ‘phase one/phase two’ dialectical cover-up.”

“It appears there may have been a clique within the government who cooperated with outside elements to kill the President,” says Scott, “and that this clique included elements in counterintelligence…in such a way as to activate a ‘phase one/phase two’ dialectical cover-up.”

Further manipulations could possibly include “forces inside the Dense Department poised to use Oswald’s record as a pretext to strike against Cuba.”


Scott alternates in telling how the “tweaking” of rumors and information between the various Intelligence factions, utilizing files on Oswald, set Oswald up for various “falsifications.”

Scott says: “Why would SR/CI withhold from the FBI the information that Oswald (whom the CIA knew to be the subject of current and exited FBI Intelligence reports) had just met in Mexico City with an ‘identified KGB officer’? The most sinister explanation would be that they only wanted this information to become known after November 22 so that Oswald would be left free until this time and then picked up, to be identified as Kennedy’s assassin.”

Delving into the theory that a “second Oswald” was part of a plot to “implicate Oswald as the patsy in the assassination” (p. 33), Scott openly identifies one of the manipulators: David Atlee Phillips, Mexico City Station’s Chief of Covert Action and Cuban Operations.

“We have however Phillips’ own statements that he was involved in the transmission of both of the key ‘phase one’ allegations promoted in CIA cables,” says Scott, “the Kostikov story of October, and the Alvarado story of November 25.”

Dan Hardway, House Committee researcher, said: “I’m firmly convinced now that he ran the red-herring, disinformation aspects of the plot.”

Scott references Mark Aaron’s and John Loftus’ remarks about Allen Dulles and Dulles’ comment about the “Agency-within-the-Agency” CIA structure (Unholy Trinity [New York: St. Martin’s Press, 1991, p. 260]).     

Outlined by Scott are various “initiatives” in their purpose to over-throw Cuba and assassinate Fidel Castro: Operation AMTRUNK (Operation Leonardo), AMLASH, the Attwood initiative, the JM/WAVE station, and the (mobster) Giancana-Roselli-CIA plots against Castro. In this somewhat confused matrix, Scott speculates, other ingredients were also integrated:

“We must look at E. Howard Hunt, a man whose role in the AMLASH story may have played a key role in the Watergate intrigue,” says Scott. “And above all, we must look at a man whose behavior, and whose CIA watchers, were intertwined with the already complex Attwood-AMLASH-Hunt story. This man was Lee Harvey Oswald.”

The middle part of the book concerns the conflicts that under-gird the CIA, the Kennedys’ political policies, and Cuba. Scott raises the connection of journalist Jack Anderson’s investigation into the possible plot by Fidel Castro to Assassinate John Kennedy:

“…there was at least one other three-man assassination team that was sent, this time with CIA support, against Castro in 1963,” says Scott. “These three men where Eddie ‘Bayo’ Perez and the other two survivors of the so-called Bayo-Pawley mission, sent in the summer of 1963 by Roselli’s close friend and room-mate John Martino.” (Hinckle and Turner, The Fish Is Red, pp. 171-173, 347-350)

“Given these signs of a mob influence within the CIA as within the FBI,” says Scott, “it seems at least possible that the mob could have helped CIA authorization for a plot against Castro, which it then exploited to murder the President of the United States.” (p. 69)

The book is comprised of multiple topics and problems that Scott discerns as mysteries to be explained; Erdmann leaves various topics best to be explored directly by the readers:

# Oswald’s associations with both leftwing and rightwing organizations.

# The political spectrum of “double-speak” which seemed to encompass many individuals, including John Kennedy: “The Kennedy habit of speaking out of both sides of the mouth at once, like the larger Kennedy habit of trying to please both hawks and doves simultaneously…” (p. 57.)

# Jack Ruby’s shared affinity to opposing political factions: “The inscrutable mystery of a political polarity, simultaneously liberal and anti-liberal.” (p.116)

# Oswald or an impersonator’s alleged September 1963 remark that he was “going to kill Kennedy.” Scott questions: “Was the story of the Oswald assassination remark (whether or not Oswald actually made it) a propaganda operation from the outset? If it were, then we cannot rule out the CIA resources in the two consulates were part of that operation.”

# The many maneuverings of a “Staff D” at the consulates; much of this is under the sway of the DFS (Direccion Federal de Sequridad), going into the LIBNVOY Project (as well as the Soviet LIFFAT Project, p. 131) and the integration of Richard Cain and his expertise as telephone-tapper. Cain worked alongside of the CIA-Giancana assassination connection in Mexico City in 1962. He was also known to have connections with the Chicago mob and Jack Ruby all the way to the DFS and plot to kill Castro; the Chicago mob was involved in “deep involvement in Mexico’s drug traffic.”

“The Richard Cain-Lennie Patrick-Dave Yaras segment of the Chicago mob had connections to 1963 not only to Ruby but to Sam Giancana, and above all to mob activities in Cuba…but if Cain recruited and/or trained then we may have isolated the matrix for a sophisticated CIA-Mafia assassination intercept program.” (p. 133) 

“The DFS, before it was abolished because of its deep involvement in Mexico’s drug traffic, was a key agency in the Mexican Gober Nacion (Ministry of the Interior),” continues Scott. “It also had close links with the FBI as well as the CIA, being part of a tradition of binational intelligence cooperation dating back to the turn of the century.”

# The existence of ZR/RIFLE Executive Action assassination teams.

# Analysis of the contradictions of critic and debunker Gerald Posner’s CASE CLOSED.

(“…there is the lawyerly approach to tell less, not more, to support the difficulties with the testimony that is preferred and to invent non-existent problems with the testimony of witnesses one wishes to discredit. This is the approach of Posner…) (p. 156)

# Scott reaches into Oswald’s career in the U.S.S.R and finds mystery in Oswald’s various aliases such as “Harvey Lee Oswald,” “Harvey Alik,” all the way into the U.S State Department with its 12/11/61 document #NO/4522 reference to “Citizen Lee Harvey Oswald.”  (p. 149)

# “…it would appear that the post-assassination hype about conspiracies was piggy-backed upon a pre-assassination operation and that the successive alterations to (Sylvia) Duran’s statement were made by the CIA and DFS to project this operation.” (Duran: former Cuban consulate official who witnessed the impersonation of Oswald.) (p. 129)

Erdmann now adds some additional facts that may help Scott’s aloof prose:


In a series of communications on December 3-4, 2013, Paul Trejo discussed some of the Winston Scott claims with co-researcher Paul Brancato, but in a much clearer fashion:

“Peter Dale Scott, with his usual brilliance, noted that the more falsehood in the story, the more it pointed to a conspiracy. Simply brilliant. Let’s see if I can render his argument here: 

“1. If those two reports were true, then the US government had foreknowledge of Oswald’s intent to kill JFK, but simply failed to use those reports.

 “2.  If those reports were somewhat true, that is, Oswald carried a fake CP card and said he would kill JFK just to provoke notoriety, then that suggests the possibility of a conspiracy involving Oswald with other people. 

 “3. If those reports were mostly false, that is, a fake Oswald carried a CP card and threatened to kill JFK, then we have final proof of a conspiracy to kill JFK and frame Oswald (even if the conspirators were commoners).

 “4. If those reports were totally false, however — simple lies made up by the Government agents involved — this would be strong evidence of a high-level conspiracy to kill JFK and frame Oswald.”    

Paul Brancato examined chapter eight in Scott’s book as to the possibility that the U.S Government demonstrated their complicity when “the government printed so many falsehoods about Lee Harvey Oswald before the JFK assassination, and then it took those words back and denied them during the Warren Commission hearings…For example, there were reports from Mexico City that said Lee Harvey Oswald was a ‘card-carrying member of the Communist Party.’ This turned out to be false, and the Dallas Police, as well as the Warren Commission, later rejected this. 

“Also, there were reports that said when Oswald was in the Cuban Embassy in Mexico City in September 1963, he threatened to kill JFK for causing Oswald’s delay in getting to Cuba.  Yet the Dallas Police and the Warren Commission would reject those reports, too.”



James DiEugenio outlined that period from Our Man in Mexico (University Press of Kansas, 2008) by Jefferson Morley: “With this backdrop, Morley outlines the four secret programs through which Oswald had to come into contact with the CIA in 1963. They were codenamed AMSPELL, LIERODE, LIENVOY, and LIEMPTY. The first two programs were run by (David Atlee) Phillips, the last two by (Winston) Scott. AMSPELL was the name given inside the CIA to the DRE,…LIERODE refers to the camera surveillance on the Cuban consulate in Mexico City.  LIENVOY refers to the wiretapping of phone lines at the Soviet Embassy, and LIEMPTY to the photo surveillance of that embassy.

“So it would seem obvious that there would be documents about this interaction forwarded to either (George) Joannides or (David Atlee) Phillips. But as Morley noted, there are 17 months of reports–from 12/62 to 4/64–the CIA has yet to declassify on AMSPELL. (Elsewhere on this site, you can read about his struggle with the CIA to get these documents.)”


Assassination researcher William Kelly commented on November 21, 2010, about a Provocation-Deception from Army Intelligence Reserve in Dallas, 11/22/1963:

“To begin with, we know that in Dallas, on November 22, there were people inside the military who falsified their reporting of the Kennedy assassination to create the false impression (or what I have called the ‘phase-one story’) of an enemy attack…but I did not realize until recently that all of them came from a single Army Intelligence Reserve unit.

“As these deceptions are immediately post-assassination, they do not in isolation establish that the assassination itself was a provocation-deception plot. They do however reveal enough about the anti-Castro mindset of the 488th Army Intelligence Reserve unit in Dallas to confirm that it was remarkably similar to that of the J-5 the preceding May that produced a menu of ‘fabricated provocations’ for the Joint Chiefs.”

Kelly outlined further facts:

# The plans of a Phase One implication of Castro on the part of a Dallas-Army Intelligence use of “deceptive falsehoods” leading all the way to the Joint Chiefs of Staff in Washington.

“Researcher Larry Haapanen has discovered the 488th seems to have had its own direct chain of command linking it to Washington. In an esoteric publication entitled The Military Order of World Wars (Turner Publishing Company, 1997, p. 120), he found that (John) Crichton “commanded the 488th MID (Strategic), reporting directly to the Army Chief of Intelligence and the Defense Intelligence Agency.” Haapanen was told by Crichton’s commander in the Texas Army Reserve (1970: Lt. Col. Whitmeyer), that Crichton’s unit did its summer training at the Pentagon.

“It is now clear that Stringfellow’s claims about Oswald as a Communist Party visitor to Cuba, though clearly false, fell well within the guidelines for a provocation-deception as set out in the Northwoods and May 1963 documents. All (of) this Cuban deception planning was in support of JCS OPLANS 312 (Air Attack in Cuba) and 316 (Invasion of Cuba).

“These were not theoretical exercises, but actively developed operational plans which the JCS were only too eager to execute. As they told Kennedy, ‘We are not only ready to take any action you may order in Cuba, we are also in an excellent condition worldwide to counter any Soviet military response to such action.’”

(Operation Northwoods: New York, May 1, 2001, David Ruppe: “In the early 1960s, America’s top military leaders reportedly drafted plans to kill innocent people and commit acts of terrorism in U.S. cities to create public support for a war against Cuba.

“Code named Operation Northwoods; the plans reportedly included the possible assassination of Cuban émigrés, sinking boats of Cuban refugees on the high seas, hijacking planes, blowing up a U.S. ship, and even orchestrating violent terrorism in U.S. cities.

“The plans were developed as ways to trick the American public and the international community into supporting a war to oust Cuba’s then new leader, communist Fidel Castro.”)

# Such actions were seen as part of the overall Doomsday communications network, known most recently as the Continuity of Government (COG) network. James Mann, for example, had referred to the COG network overseers as “part of the permanent, though hidden, national security apparatus of the United States, inhabitants of a world in which Presidents may come and go, but America always keeps on fighting.”

Puppet Man Paine1 793d4ee938f39ad3af4104dad36d9a06_original

Scott tells of additional curious mysteries (The JFK Assassination as an Engineered ProvocationDeception Plot: A Study in the Sociodynamics of Invasion Pretexts [Addressed to COPA], November 2010 [As Amended Dec. 13, 2010]):

(Amongst the lists of the false evidence – such as the Kostin letter – including the typed version found by CIA Operative Ruth Paine only hours after the assassination – as well as the erroneous Kostikov visit and telephone call – and the Marina statement – there exists some nagging questions in regards to John Crichton of the 488th Intelligence Unit.)

“Of interest still today is the coincidence that the same 488th Army Intelligence Reserve unit helped generate the false Marina story, as well as the false Stringfellow report. The interpreter who first supplied the Marina story, Ilya Mamantov, was selected as the result of a phone call between Deputy Police Chief George Lumpkin and Jack Crichton. We have already seen that Crichton commanded the 488th; and Lumpkin, in addition to being the Deputy Police Chief, was also a deputy commander of the 488th under Crichton.

“John Crichton was the kind of figure Malcolm Gladwell in The Tipping Point described as a ‘connector…people with a special gift for bringing the world together.’ Some of his contacts are figures who should be familiar to students of the JFK assassination. His superior in the Army Reserves, Lieutenant Colonel George Whitmeyer, was on 11/22 in the pilot car of the Kennedy motorcade along with DPD Deputy Chief George Lumpkin; the pilot car is of interest because of its unexplained stop in front of the Texas School Book Depository. D.H. ‘Dry Hole’ Byrd, owner of the Texas School Book Depository, was a director of Crichton’s firm Dorchester Gas Producing.”



Assassination investigator John Newman told Frontline News about the taped calls in question:

“The cover-up was apparently put in motion the day after the assassination by Anne Goodpasture (unless someone else altered the cables she sent after the fact) in the CIA station in Mexico City. But it was a sloppy cover-up. Files released in the mid-1990s show she sent a cable at noon (1pm EST) on Nov. 23 stating that a voice comparison (between two intercepted phone calls) had not been made at the time of Oswald’s visit because one tape (presumably of the Saturday, Sept. 28 call) had been erased before another had been received (presumably from the Oct. 1 intercept). It was unlikely this would have happened, however, as tapes were kept for at least two weeks before erasure. It was necessary to deny that a voice comparison with the Cuban consulate tape had taken place, in order to facilitate the cover story that the station had not realized that Oswald had visited the Cuban consulate.”

(A voice analysis by a CIA translator [a Mrs. {Finglass} Tarasoff] did demonstrate that operators handled the tapes in responding to a CIA cable; Goodpasture, in changing her story, suggested to the possibility that cables were altered.)

James DiEugenio (continuing in his review of Jefferson Morley’s book Our Man in Mexico) further highlighted the antics of Anne Goodpasture:

“Besides the seventeen months of missing reports, the results of the other three programs are also either lacking or questionable. As many know, to this day, the CIA has yet to produce a photograph of Oswald either entering or leaving either compound. And the photo they turned over to the Warren Commission in this regard does not even resemble Oswald. (In the Lopez Report-which is scathing about her–Anne Goodpasture tries to state that she did not realize this grievous error about the wrong photo of Oswald. until 1976. The authors make it clear that they find this suggestion not credible, as they do much of her testimony.) Since Oswald frequented the compounds a total of five times, there were ten opportunities to photograph him. What happened, and why there has never been a picture produced, is one of the great mysteries of this case.”

Newman said that FBI records indicated at this point that President Johnson, Attorney Katzenbach, and FBI Director Hoover were switching to a “lone-assassin scenario,” made on Sunday, two days after the assassination.

Newman added: “But for the lone-assassin scenario to stand, the Mexico City evidence at CIA — the tapes of the impersonation and some cables — had to be destroyed or altered. The problem was that news of the impersonation was spreading.”

Arturo Rodriguez, a former Cuban security agent who was intimately familiar with security apparatus, tended to confirm the Part One/Part Two Intelligence plan. We repeat Rodriguez’s remarks almost in their entirety (a presentation given in Rio de Janeiro, August 1995):

“As known by those present here, — having been informed by the Select Committee — the photographic post across from our embassy, located in the street Francisco Marquez 149-1 Colonia Condesa, was operated by a Cuban, posing as a Colombian named Augusto Cesar Rodriguez Gallegos, from where everyone entering and leaving the diplomatic office was photographed.

“Oswald visited at least three times the Cuban consulate (or, someone impersonating Oswald…SE) and on one or two occasions the Soviet consulate that was also ‘covered’.  However, after the assassination, none of the photos appeared and the one that did was strange. (Emphasis added…SE)

“‘If the CIA obtained photos, information, telephone recordings, and microphone recordings placed in the sofa of the Cuban consulate, years later uncovered, – why did all this evidence disappear? (Emphasis added…SE)

“Reflecting on all of this we make the following hypothesis. Everything was arranged to document Oswald’s visit, therefore there was a plot to involve Cuba in the assassination that was to later “unchain” the American reply.

“However, almost immediately after Oswald’s arrest in Dallas, when the requests for Oswald’s Mexico material starts by the ‘principal center’ (meaning an official agency) – incorrect information was given.  Was it that the arrest was not planned by those who plotted, threw out (did away with) the well-conceived plan to blame Cuba?  The truth is that almost immediately after Oswald’s assassination, in the coarse and precipitated conditions known to all appeared the theory of the ‘lone assassin’ and the ‘Cuban plot’ took second stage.  What are the reasons?  What are the motives?”



Scott has clearly spoken of the wide swipe of government Intelligence, the Mob cartel, drug trafficking, and the brotherhood and cooperation between these elements (even beyond borders) going back to the turn of the turn of the century and clearly up unto the present day:

“In Mexico, to be sure, a DFS scandal involving forged and altered document will seem almost trivial in the light of later DFS scandals,” says Scott. “The DFS was already linked to drug-traffickers by the late 1940s when the DFS founder retired to work with Mexico’s leading international drug kingpin.

The Chicago mob had been supplied with drugs from Durango, Mexico, from as far back as 1947, to a major Mexico government-protected connection that appears to have involved Jack Ruby…By the 1980s the DFS commanders along the U.S border were all suspected by DEA officials of complexity in the growing drug traffic…”

Recently, the Antifascist website questioned the continued arming of these questionable elements, in pointing out the  U.S. State Department “plans to award a contract to provide a Mexican government security agency with a system that can intercept and analyze information from all types of communications systems,” NextGov reported (this, despite recent reports that the bodies of four Mexican journalists were discovered in a canal in the port city of Veracruz, less than a week after another journalist based in that city was found strangled in her home).


Why Is the State Department ‘Arming’ Mexico’s Intelligence Agencies with Advanced Intercept Technologies? Anonymous “American officials” cited by the Times “declined to provide details about the work being done” by a team of spooks drawn from the Drug Enforcement Administration, the CIA and “retired military personnel members from the Pentagon’s Northern Command”?  They said that “the compound had been modeled after ‘fusion intelligence centers’ that the United States operates in Iraq and Afghanistan to monitor insurgent groups.”

The “fusion centers” in the heimat, of which the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) has amply investigated, and said: “Americans have been put under surveillance or harassed by the police just for deciding to organize, march, protest, espouse unusual viewpoints, and engage in normal, innocuous behaviors such as writing notes or taking photographs in public.”

Antifascist said: “Despite alarms raised by a score of federal law enforcement agencies, including the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), fearful that sensitive wiretap information was finding its way into the hands of international narcotrafficking cartels, virtually nothing has been done to halt the outsourcing of America’s surveillance apparatus to firms with intimate ties to foreign intelligence entities. Indeed, as America’s spy system is turned inward against the American people, corporations such as Verint work hand-in-glove with a spooky network of security agencies and their corporatist pals in the telecommunications industry.”

These Intelligence Units constituted hundreds of billions of dollars. They involve a “drug war” that favors one group of criminals over another to obtain leverage over corrupt politicians. They also constituted an endless source of funds for intelligence-connected black operations. “The Verint deal seems like a slam-dunk.”

“After all, with powerful communications’ intercept technologies in the hands of the Mexican secret state, ‘national security,’ on both sides of the border,” says Antifacist, “is little more than code for business as usual.”

Said Larry Chin, Online Journal Associate Editor of Rense.com (April 4, 2007): “The Dallas-Watergate-Iran-Contra connection has been thoroughly documented by the key JFK researchers, and in particular, in the work of Peter Dale Scott, one of the very first to show the deep political continuity across three decades. Daniel Hopsicker’s Barry and the Boys goes into even more detail on the players.” 

Chin talked about the George H.W. Bush connection: He was a Texas oilman (Zapata Oil) and a CIA operative, involved with the Bay of Pigs. “Bush’s name was found in the papers of George DeMohrenschildt, one of Lee Harvey Oswald’s CIA handlers. As documented by Pete Brewton, author of The Mafia, the CIA, and George Bush, Bush was deeply connected with a small circle of Texas elites tied to the CIA and the Mafia, as well as the Florida-based CIA/anti-Casto Cuban exile/ Mafia milieu.”


Puppel Man Zapata unnamed

Busch had his fingers into all circles. He was Richard Nixon’s selection for the Republican National Committee chairman, later a CIA director. “Bush constantly covered-up and stonewalled for his boss about Watergate, which itself (by the admission of Frank Sturgis and others) was a cover-up of the JFK assassination.” 

“Tracking any of the individual CIA operatives involved with the Bay of Pigs, it is impossible to ignore or deny direct connections to George H.W. Bush and his crime family, across the Kennedy assassinations, covert operations in Indochina and, later,  Latin America.”



General Fabian Escalante, former chief of Cuba’s G-2 intelligence agency, had intimate knowledge of Oswald and the Kennedy assassination.

He joined the Department of State Security (G-2) in 1960. At the time of the assassination of John F. Kennedy, Escalante was head of a counter-intelligence unit and was part of a team investigating a CIA operation called Sentinels of Liberty, an attempt to recruit Cubans willing to work against Castro. Escalante spoke extensively here:

“Not long before his death in 1993, Col. Bishop confirmed to this writer that he had knowledge of the JFK plot. The Cubans indicate that the Vidal-Bishop Dallas trip concerned plans for re-taking the island once Castro’s people had been implicated in the assassination. (David Atlee Phillips was really ‘Maurice Bishop’…SE.)

“…Oswald was an intelligence agent of the US—CIA, FBI, military, or all of these, we don’t know. He was manipulated, told he was penetrating a group of Cuban agents that wanted to kill Kennedy. But from the very beginning, he was to be the element to blame Cuba. (Emphasis added…SE.)

“Not less than 15 persons took part in the assassination…At the same time, knowing a little about CIA operations, we see how they used the principle of decentralized operations—independent parties with a specific role, to guarantee compartmentalization and to keep it simple.”

In 2006 Escalante published JFK: The Cuba Files. In the book Escalante described the conspiracy uncovered by Cuba’s investigation, which reviewed declassified US files and reports from Cuban intelligence units that had infiltrated anti-Castro groups in Miami.)

 Former CIA Agents Arthur Hulnick (Right) and Joseph Wippi (Left)

Journalists Arthur Hulnick and Daniel Mattausch succinctly wrote about the CIA:

“Professional standards require intelligence professionals to lie, hide information, or use covert tactics to protect their ‘cover,’ access, sources, and responsibilities.

The Central Intelligence Agency expects, teaches, encourages, and controls these tactics so that the lies are consistent and supported (‘backstopped’). The CIA expects intelligence officers to teach others to lie, deceive, steal, launder money, and perform a variety of other activities that would certainly be illegal if practiced in the United States. They call these tactics ‘tradecraft,’ and intelligence officers practice them in all the world’s intelligence services.”


“Scott’s analysis suggests the evidence from Mexico City as part of a frame-up, making Oswald, Mexico, and Deep Politics an essential piece of research and analysis,” says the headline-cover-comments, “shedding new light on the Communist conspiracy allegations behind the JFK assassination.”

(Footnote: Scott offers penetrating and in-depth analysis of the Oswald Mystery that isn’t often seen in researchers: always hardhitting in its scope. Unfortunately, Scott’s English training hasn’t allowed him to write in common but clear English: there is always a layer of stilted, staid and dry techno-lingo through his work, often preventing smoother reading, usually hop-scotched back and forth through his writing. It’s a small factor considering Scott’s deep research, and probably not intentional, but such rhetoric would tend to camouflage that many of Scott’s ‘inferences’ are not complete hard evidence, but only reasonable suspicions.  Despite this failing, however, Scott is definitely onto conspirators hiding in the bushes and having fooled the public.)
