Philip Shenon focuses major parts of his book on the WC on Charles Thomas' concerns that the government didn't fully look into allegations that Oswald was seen with Cuban officials when he went to Mexico City. Thomas was convinced that Oswald did indeed go there, that Oswald wasn't impersonated, but didn't think what he did there wasn't looked into adequately. But Thomas admitted that even if the reports were true, e.g, the so-called "Twist Party" where Oswald was allegedly seen with Cuban officials, it didn't indicate there was a conspiracy.

As he (Thomas) said in a memo in 1969 to then Secretary of State William Rogers, "Even if all of the allegations in the attached memo are true, they would not, in themselves, prove there was a conspiracy to assassinate President Kennedy." But he said that if the allegations were revealed to the public that "those who have tried to discredit the Warren Commission would have a field day in speculating about their implications."

For what it's worth, I think Oswald did attend that party - Silvia Duran lied about it - and probably did meet with either Cuban officials or pro-Cuban people who may have helped fuel his anti-JFK views regarding Cuba. But connecting those conversations with the events in Dallas two months later is a reach.

Dear Steven,

It's pretty widely accepted by John Newman, et al., that Oswald was impersonated over the phone in Mexico City on 9/28/63 and on 10/02/63 by ... gasp ... the evil, evil, evil CIA.

I agree that Oswald was impersonated over the phone in Mexico City, but by the CIA???

And regarding the possibility that Oswald really was at the Cuban Consulate on 9/28/63, or that he was somehow physically impersonated there by the evil, evil, evil CIA, how are we to explain the fact that the "Oswald" Sylvia Duran claimed (during her right-after-the-assassination interrogations by the Mexican Police) to have dealt with was "short" (Duran was 5' 3.5" --  KGB colonel Nikolai Leonov was 5' 7" -- Oswald was 5' 9.5") and "blond"?  And that she elaborated on that a bit in her HSCA testimony when she said he was "blue or green-eyed, skinny, and blond-haired"?

And then, of course, there's Eusebio Azcue's HSCA description of "Oswald," which leaves no doubt that he's fingering the aforementioned skinny, 35 year-old, blond-haired, suit-wearing, very thin-faced Leonov -- for having provided Duran and himself, either directly or through a DGI surrogate, with instructions and a passport-sized photo (or two) of sweater vest-wearing Oswald that very well could have been taken of Oswald while he was still in the USSR ...

Edit:  And that the Soviet Embassy "security guard" who "volunteered," over a sure-to-be-tapped-by-CIA phoneline, the KGB-made-radioactive name "Kostikov" to the playing-along, Oswald impersonator on 10/02/63 was none other than triple-agent (i.e., still loyal to the Kremlin) Ivan Obyedkov?

Thanks, Paul.

Unfortunately, none of the "LNers" (like yourself), or traditional "The Evil, Evil, Evil CIA and the Deep State Did It!" CTers (like James "Jumbo Duh" DiEugenio at the EF) are willing to touch this stuff (what I've written above is just the tip of the iceberg, btw) with a ten-foot pole, and yet we wonder how we ended up with 50-plus years of tinfoil hat conspiracy theories (on many more subjects than just the JFK Assassination), and pro-Putin "useful idiot" Donald Trump as president?

LOL
