JFK Declassified: Tracking Oswald is a History Channel television series about an investigation led by former CIA agent Robert Baer and former LAPD police lieutenant, Adam Bercovici into the 1963 assassination of US president John F. Kennedy, using recently declassified government documents to track down locations and witnesses connected with assassin Lee Harvey Oswald.
Oswald tries to obtain a visa to go to Cuba from the Cuban Embassy in Mexico City, but is alleged to have become upset when told he would have to supply visa photos, and he was thrown out. The Mexican receptionist who interviewed him at the embassy told Mexican police that was the only time she had ever seen Oswald, but a witness places Oswald, the receptionist and the Cuban consul at the same dance party for Mexican leftists, and says he heard Oswald was invited by the receptionist. Oswald returns to New Orleans and finds a job at a coffee company located near a garage which is said to have also served as a federal motor pool for undercover vehicles, where he is sometimes found hanging out by his employer during work hours. Oswald offers his military skills to an anti-Castro Cuban exile group in New Orleans but is rebuffed. He is later arrested after a fight breaks out while he is passing out “Fair Play for Cuba” pamphlets defending the Castro regime. An abandoned, secret military depot, likely connected with the CIA’s JMMOVE program to arm Cuban exile groups, is discovered 15 minutes from where Oswald was living in New Orleans.
