Gustavo Ortiz is LITEMPO-2:   See "LITEMPO:   The CIA's Eyes on Tlatelolco", Jefferson Morley, National Security Archive.

Ortiz became president of Mexico from 64-70 and was a candidate at the time of the assassination.    As can be seen from the discussion above, Ortiz was securely within the CIA's orbit.

[x]      The FBI also had access to these tapes -- one story is that the FBI got their tapes from the DFS!:   Rex Bradford, More Mexico Mysteries, Kennedy Assassination Chronicles, Volume 7, Issue 4. 

Also see Telephone Conversation between DCI John McCone and FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, 11/26/63, 11:20 am.

[xi] The FBI's Mexico City field office was considered to be a security problem.   It stemmed from a joint CIA-FBI operation in 1963 designed to convince Soviet military attache Valentin Bakulin to defect.   Both the CIA and the FBI were using double agents in this effort:   Memo from Mexico City to Director, 5/27/63. HSCA Segregated CIA Collection (microfilm - reel 50: Alpizar - Cubela) / NARA Record Number: 104-10215-10022.

[xii]   Concern about this alleged penetration was the focus of discussion between CIA HQ and the Mexico City station from October 2 to October 5 :    DIR 73144 from HQ on October 2 reads as follows (except for the blurred sections):   "Re coordination of FBI (oper?)ations in mexi,  -__ in liaison with odenvy (FBI) is still delicate matter which ___ amdead at hdqs 0-- directives foresee that certain types of operations may be coordinated at hdqs rather than in the field.  on the whole our relations with fbi on world-wide and pbprime ce matters are extremely productive and still improving and we do not wish at present time to raise new issues in mexico...FBI has agreed and has instructed its mexi rep to discuss with you pertinent details of such russian CE ops as LAROB case."

[xiii]   All indications are that the Mystery Man was a KGB officer named Yuri Moskalev, with cover as a scientist in Mexico City whose papers "rarely, if ever, were specific, or presented new data.":   Memorandum for the Record, Chris Hopkins, LAD Task Force, "Possible Identity of the "Unidentified Man' Photographed in Mexico City in October 1963", p. 2.    Russ Holmes Work File / NARA Record Number: 104-10428-10168.   

Also see NARA Record Number: 104-10413-10055. 

[xiv]    The CIA's file card for Moskalev identified him as "35, medium height":     Biographic information card:   Moskalev, Yuriy Ivanovich, Russ Holmes Work File / NARA Record Number: 104-10413-10307.

[xv] Several identification experts from the Disguise and Identification Section of OTS/GAD reviewed photos and concluded that "Moskalev could very likely be identifiable with the unidentified man:   "Possible Identity of the "Unidentified Man' Photographed in Mexico City in October 1963", p. 5,
