State Secret: Chapter 6
Chapter 6: The Set-Up and the Cover-Up of Bill Simpich's new book State Secret: Wiretapping in Mexico City, Double Agents, and the Framing of Lee Oswald is now available for reading online here at MFF.
Chapter 6 switches gears, and dives into the aftermath of the JFK assassination. This includes the immediate aftermath - Oswald's whereabouts, the 5'10" 165 lb. description quickly passed to authorities, the Tippit shooting and particularly a wallet found at the scene of that crime - as well as the following weeks, during which CIA officer John Whitten led the Agency's part of the investigation until being suddenly relieved at the hands of James Angleton.
State Secret is being serialized a chapter at a time. Stay tuned for the concluding chapter.
