Cryptonym: LITENSOR

Adolfo Lopez Mateos, President of Mexico in 1963.

Oswald 201 File, Vol 2, Folder 6

"Read to President night of 25/XI/1963. S." S is almost certainly Chief of Station Win Scott. This note appears to be a reference to the "President" of Mexico, who was LITENSOR. Which document was read to the President. The one prior, or the one subsequent? I would say the latter.

Martino, a former prisoner in the Cuban jails and right-wing activist, argued that Castro planned the assassination to checkmate any US-USSR deal to replace him with a Tito-type figure. Martino wrote about Lopez Mateos: "...whose pro-communist background and associations are myriad...(when President Tito came to visit) newspaper publishers were ordered to publish only laudatory articles on the Yugoslav dictator...The Cubans in the South Florida area have had dealings with Oswald..." He claimed Oswald unsuccessfully tried to join INTERPEN, the DRE and JURE. (Note: Miami, then New Orleans, then Dallas)..."The fact that the crime was committed in Dallas, a center of American conservative and nationalist movements, was probably not accidental. Had Oswald managed to escape to Cuba, the liberal press and the Establishment could have placed the entire blame for the murder of the President, not on America's communist enemies, but on those who love this country and wish to preserve its institutions and its heritage."
