52. That's one of the main things he did while he was there
Eisenhower was scheduled to have a summit meeting with Soviet Premier Khrushchev but the military and MIC didn't want that
to happen (they didn't want detente, they wanted the Cold War to heat up even more). To achieve their ultimate goal, a plan was
hatched to sabotage the up-coming summit.

So, Oswald was tasked with passing along crucial data about U2 flight altitudes which enabled the Soviets to target U2 flights
with sufficient accuracy in order to shoot them down.

Once the Soviets shot down Mr. Powers' plane, Eisenhower had little choice but to cancel the U.S./Soviet Summit meeting.

Many people are convinced that Oswald was actually in attendance at the Soviet trial of Mr. Powers!

CIA capabilities have always been put to use for carrying out missions which serve the interests of the military and
its associated military industrial complex.

Anyone interested in this and related topics is urged to study some of the available research that has been done on this
and related matters.
