Last week, Joseph Lazzaro of International Business Times followed up on a JFK Facts story with some historical perspective.
“In 1964, CIA Deputy Director Richard Helms, ‘the man who kept the secrets,’ and [George] Joannides’ boss, never told the Warren Commission that Kennedy’s alleged assassin had scuffled with the CIA-backed Cubans in New Orleans. Helms also never disclosed that Joannides — and other CIA agents who were under his supervision and funding — had helped communicate the story of Oswald’s pro-Castro activities.”
“It wasn’t until 1998 — when the CIA was forced to disclose Joannides’ support for Oswald’s antagonists among the anti-Castro students — that the public learned of this psychological warfare operation. The Agency has resisted further disclosure about the nature, focus and objective of Joannides’ operations in 1963 ever since.”
