“What some people don’t get is that the JFK story is about justice.”
So writes Bill Simpich in Chapter 1 of his new book, “State Secret: Wiretapping in Mexico City, Double Agents, and the Framing of Lee Oswald,”
This groundbreaking book is now available free from MaryFerrell.org. (I wrote about the preface to the book last September.)
As I wrote then, I”m a big fan of Simpich and his research. The documents he has discovered — and linked to — reveal in unprecedented detail how the CIA’ s station in Mexico City actually functioned in 1963. Few books in the literature of the CIA or JFK’s assassination have such granular documented detail about the often-concealed “sources and methods” of the agency.
Unlike Anthony Summers’ “Not in Your Lifetime,” this is not an introduction to the JFK a story. Frankly, it’s not a book for readers who are new to the JFK story.
This is a book for people who know the JFK assassination story well and want a deep — and fascinating — dive into one of the most of its most troubling chapters: Lee Harvey Oswald’s visit to Mexico City, seven weeks before President Kennedy was killed.
