Description

Mexico City was the Casablanca of the Cold Wara hotbed of spies, revolutionMaries, and assassins. The CIA's station there was the front line of the United States' fight against international communism, as important for Latin America as Berlin was for Europe. Investigative reporter Jefferson Morley traces Winston Mackinley Scott's remarkable career from his humble origins in rural Alabama to wartime G-man, to OSS London operative, to right-hand man of CIA Director Allen Dulles, to his remarkable reign for more than a decade as virtual proconsul in Mexico. He reveals how Scott ran hundreds of covert espionage operations from his headquarters in the U.S. Embassy while keeping three Mexican presidents on the agency's payroll, participating in the Bay of Pigs fiasco, and, most intriguingly, overseeing the surveillance of Lee Harvey Oswald during his visit to the Mexican capital just weeks before the assassination of President Kennedy."show more
