With the publication of Chapter 6, the entirety of Bill Simpich’s remarkable book “State Secret,” is now available for free at the Mary Ferrell Foundation website.
“State Secret” tells the story of Lee Harvey Oswald in Mexico City in September and October 1963 in unprecedented detail and clarity.
I told this story, as it was seen through the eyes of station chief Win Scott, in my book, “Our Man in Mexico,” but
now I must admit that, while my account is not wrong, it is not complete. Using documents that were declassified after I wrote my book, Simpich shows there was rather more going on than I knew.
Chapter 6 cover the aftermath of the assassination where the story of the CIA operations around Oswald was concealed from investigators and even from senior CIA official John Whitten.
