Former CIA employee endorses ‘Our Man in Mexico’

former employee called my book about Winston Scott, chief of the CIA’s Mexico City station from 1956 to 1969,  “a realistic picture” of the agency.

In a 5-Star Amazon review, Martha Hanchulake wrote:

“As a former longtime employee of CIA, I can attest that this book conveys a true picture of the goings on within the agency. The story focuses on the life of Win Scott, who rose to become station chief in Mexico City for many years. Meticulously researched and documented, the book relates how the “company” evolved from wartime OSS in London. We learn about some key operations in postwar Europe and in Central America, and about how counter-intelligence works.

“Building his story by telling exactly who did what and when, this author has achieved an authentic history of the period through the assassination of President Kennedy and afterward. The CIA’s contacts with Oswald in the weeks before the shooting in Dallas, and the subsequent stonewalling, withholding and even destruction of information are all spelled out so the reader is aware of what pieces of history are still hidden.”

    Care to comment on what a former CIA employee said about the agency and November 22, 1963?

    Did I read that correctly? “Destruction of evidence?” Why would the CIA do that? Oswald was a lone nut and a deranged loner? What could POSSIBLY be their motive?

    While her review is praise worthy, I’m always skeptical of any CIA involvement in JFK fact finding. Her endorsement of the book “Our Man in Mexico” is very concise and goes to the heart of Morley’s treatise. What is her background and work for the CIA, and is this her real name? What makes her review, other than she worked for the CIA, so interesting for you, Jeff?
