CIA unmasked: Intelligence agency’s ‘most closely guarded secret’ exposed
On Friday 22 November, 1963, Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested for the assassination of president John F. Kennedy in Dallas, Texas. Hours after the murder, Oswald was found hiding in a theatre, with police having tracked him down via several eyewitness descriptions over the course of the day.
The weekend saw Oswald interrogated by the police, where he consistently denied having killed JFK, and police officer J. D. Tippit – who was shot after the officer pulled him over.
Oswald claimed to be a “patsy”, framed by the US authorities.
On Sunday 24 November, 1963, as detectives were escorting Oswald through the basement of Dallas Police Headquarters, a man named Jack Ruby approached Oswald and fatally shot him.
The events leading to JFK’s assassination and Oswald’s subsequent murder have led many to speculate whether Oswald worked alone.
Oswald’s movement in the years prior to the assassination have been regarded as curious – especially since being known as a Marxist and Communist sympathiser.
He defected to the Soviet Union shortly after leaving the army as a marine in 1959.
From this point on, Oswald was involved in what were considered dubious politics, at one point attempting to renounce his US citizenship and condemning America in a letter to his brother.
When Oswald returned to the US in 1961 he was hardly questioned about his time in Russia by the authorities.

Many maintain that Oswald was in fact working with the US government, FBI, and CIA – maybe not directly, but with an organisation subcontracted by one of the authority bodies.
Most controversial are the events that saw Oswald attempt to enter Cuba by bouncing back and forth the Cuban and Russian embassies in Mexico City, September 1963.
Oswald’s desperate attempt at securing a Cuban visa is explored as a potential indication of foul play in the 2013 documentary ‘Killing Oswald’.
Retired Major and author of ‘Oswald and the CIA’, John Newman, explained why he believed Oswald was not alone in the assassination, and how the Cuban fiasco has since been one of the CIA’s most closely guarded secrets.

He said: “The story of Oswald and Mexico City is one of the most difficult and arcane stories in the Kennedy assassination.
“Somebody down there, either Oswald or somebody impersonating him, had an experience that’s very difficult to explain.
“My explanation is that the story reflects a failure in the primary mission which was that Oswald or the Oswald character was supposed to get to Cuba.
“Ostensibly on his way to the soviet union, but to get to Cuba to help cement this story that they were putting into the files that Oswald was connected to Castro, working for Castro, when he killed Kennedy.
“When that failed, ostensibly because he couldn’t get the visas from the cubans or the soviets who wouldn’t do it, they had to come up with a plan B.”
After his failed attempt Oswald, or someone posing as Oswald, called the Mexican embassy, recalling the events of the visa meeting to the consul.
On this, Mr Newman said: “This was the phone conversation where he says his name on the phone, he mentions the name of the Soviet assignation guy, Kostokov.
“And it’s been one of the most closely guarded secrets all these years of the CIA.
“I don’t think this was just Oswald’s idea.
“I think it was somebody else’s – a handler .
“And of all the characters I can think of, likely it would be David Attlee Phillips.”
