Earlier this week JFK Facts reported that the CIA admitted in a recent court filing that George Joannides, a deceased undercover officer who played a mysterious and still unexplained role in the JFK assassination story, had a residence in New Orleans in 1964.
Why is that significant?
New Orleans is where members of a CIA-funded anti-Castro organization guided and monitored by Joannides had a series of encounters with Lee Harvey Oswald in August 1963. When Oswald was arrested for killing Kennedy, Joannides’ Cuban agents immediately linked him to Castro, generating headlines about “the pro-Castro gunman.”
Fifteen years later, the CIA called Joannides out of retirement to stonewall congressional investigators who had reopened the JFK case.
In this video for Black Ops Radio, Dan Hardway, a former investigator for the House Select Committee on Assassination, talks about how Joannides thwarted his efforts to investigate the CIA
Hardway, now an attorney in North Carolina, provides an eyewitness account of the possibly illegal actions of the CIA in obstructing Congress’s efforts to investigate JFK’s assassination.
